The time has come to begin another long journey. I have two Monogram Kingfisher kits. These kits will be built together and both will get complete makeovers.
I am adding resin pits from Lone Star Models and Cutting Edge as well as white metal beaching gear, Squadron canopies, resin corrected floats from LSM, a corrected (scratch built) closed cowling, and an open scratch built cowling with Vector Engine and full fire wall and mounts, wires, plumbing, etc. Both kits will receive a full rescribe and any control surface attention I think they may need. I still have not decided on a scheme for either plane but I was thinking of an RAF on one and a triple blue on the other. Decal kits are a bit limited for these so my options are also not so great.
I don't know how long this will take, but my goal is to have them done this year. Time will tell on that one for sure. I have learn a great deal from my P-40 build and that will save me a great deal of time. Well, enjoy the show.
