1/72 Lawn Dart
Posted by lewbud on Monday, June 11, 2018 8:20 PM

Started building Meng's 1/72 F-102 Case X in future President George H.W. Bush's markings. Started with the wings.

Since the wingtips on the Case X are different from the Case XX, they are molded as separate pieces, as are the ailerons.

Fit so far is good, but I hear there are pitfalls ahead.

Hi,

I thought George H.W. was the father who flew Avengers in WWII, and George W. was the son that flew F-102s in the Air National Guard. Huh?

Did some work on the pit yesterday. Got the tub painted (still need to do some touch up) and installed Eduard's PE. Need to go back and paint the foot pads with some Aircraft Interior Black. Crappy phone pics follow.

The instrument panel. Unfortunately, Meng got the color of the cockpit wrong. The instructions call for Aircraft Gray (ADC Gray) like the exterior, rather than Dark Gull Gray. Not going to sweat it because once the canopy is closed, it won't be noticeable.

Also painted the interior of the fuselage, but that's boring and not pic worthy.  More soon.
