Hi All,

Lots of nice things going on here! I like the various weathering done, Bill I really like how the glider is coming along.

Well, now that my B-17 project has come to an end, I'm able to give my Tony a little more attention. I decided to use the Squadron canopy to pose the cockpit open, and this one is giving me fits! Still I think it's coming along. Pics to follow soon.

Stay safe and keep having fun!!

One half of the cowling off. I also have to see how much, if any, of the cowling ring to keep.

I sprayed on a base coat of Tamiya Flat Earth. Next is to make the mask for the rest of the camo.

Gary Kato, I have one of those old kits. It will be interesting to see what you do with it.

Here is my Revell 1/72 PZL P-11c from the "Bent-Wing Birds" campaign. I decided to cut the back of the cowling off as it's supposed to be a ring. The view on the box cover is from the rear and you can easily see the back of the engine pistons, so I felt I had to do it on the model. I have no idea how successful I will be.

It was time consuming to mask all this off.

Well, here we go.
Like the old adage about the chicken and the pig and the breakfast, (the chicken is involved, the pig is committed)
I'm committed.

True to form, a complete dark horse (or in this case, little dark bird) has risen from the depths of the stash to claim some bench time.

DML/Dragons MH-6 Little Bird out of the stash and under a repaint and with smoked canopy.

not much to do to salvage the 20+yr in initial paint/canopy masking.

rotor system

and fuselage


BUT.. the canopy to fuselage fit of this kit STINKS!!
I've read and have images suggesting cutting the door frames off and attaching these to the canopy FIRST, then fitting and filling the canopy AFTER.

We will see of my attention span lasts that long.

I have installed the control surfaces and painted the bottom yellow.Most RAF trainers were yellow, and if that was all there was to it, I would be done. The training gliders were yellow with diagonal black stripes. That should be...uh.....fun.

This is a left over from the "Learning to fly" campaign. I have been working on a dragster over on the Auto Modeler forum. Now that I am about finished with that, I started working on the Hotspur glider.

Finally i got this old Hasagawa Vought F4U-4 Corsair processed ( working from home does help ), it all stalled after the chipping with the hairspray technic, i just placed it on the shelf and it started collecting dust for a year or so (it's not the oldest shelf queen). I was afraid that the layer of Future would ruin the hairspray/paint well i now know that after a year the hairspray does not work and everything stayed well together,.. and that for an 1980's kit that i picked-up for 5 euro anyway here the pictures



After cleaning, the dust really sticked to the surface, the 1989 decals where good quality





Before the oil paint blent i applied a coat of future





The end result





The finished products of some corona builds



thanks

It is the accurate miniatures 1/48 kit, one of the few aircraf kits ive built, because i am really an armor modeler. And for changes It is pretty much OOB,but I cut the canopy apart, put in seat belts and put a cast look on the bombs and cut and reposed the tail planes. love your builds they look great! cant wait to see more!
