Wasp WIP
Posted by Don Stauffer on Thursday, May 10, 2018 3:44 PM

Got my bench cleaned up after putting last project aside, and ready to go with the Wasp.  Actually, I had glued two cylinders together to see how much of a job it is.  I remember it being a bit of a job on my previous build, but that was a long time ago.  And this time I really want to work on getting the fins even!

My workbench has a particle board top, and a good and proper cleanup involves pulling up the Contact shelf paper finish and replacing it with new stuff.  Gets rid of all the paint spills, glue gobs and whatnot in about half an hour or less.

That looks like an interesting build. I never heard of the Williams Brothers Model Co. It seems like they make large scale models like your kit and parts for  RC airplanes. Here is their website: http://www.wmbros.com

They also made airplane kits.  One specialty I really liked were racing planes.  I see so many available now that the new owners must be repopping those too.  They were/are 1:32 scale, which is nice because those racing planes were pretty small.

Hi Don

Looking forward to seeing what you do with this

In the meantime, I like your bench--very businesslike. I also appreciate clearing the decks before starting a new project. I do that as well, and often just after a session, or even in the middle, so I have a clean slate. 

cheers

Mea Culpa!  I had remembered (gee it had been a long time since I built that first kit) as a Wasp Jr.  It isn't- it is the big Wasp, the 1340.
