Congrats on finishing a great looking model. All of your scratch built extras add a really nice touch. I think you pretty much nailed the pinkish color of the real aircraft. At least it looks pinkish to me. 


Thanks!  She is a bit "pinkish" lol.  The most faded parts are the top of the wings, and the stabs.  It's basically a pink with some grey and even a touch of purple undertones.  I clearly have looked at too many pictures.Embarrassed

Thanks keavdog!

Finally finished my "display case".  My Dad built the stand at some point roughly 30 yrs ago for his 55 Gal fish tank.  He got rid of the tank and added the upper section at some point, I don't remember when.  When he passed away he was using at a display shelf for his diecast cars.  I couldn't just toss it.  So I brought it home and used it as a display shelf for my models.  I needed some place to put Mini Whiskey 7 and eventually Mini Movie Memphis Belle.  So I decided to modify the shelf a bit to make them fit, and be able to keep the dust out.  I added a back, and sides to the middle of the stand, and a piece of clear acrylic sheet to the front for the door.  I may do something different with the side, I'm not sure how I feel about it yet, lol.

The small plane is a Mini L-21.  Another one of the museums birds.  It was the very first plane my daughter ever flew in.

Once Mini MMB is done she'll go on the other side.

Keyda, it is really neat to see you develop into a really fine modeler right before our eyes. It seems the bar keeps going up with each kit you do.

Thanks scottrc!

Shipwreck, Thank you.  I have certainly come along way in a few short years.  I still have my very first build, and man does it need some help, lol.  I'm hoping to re-do it at some point down the road.  Maybe I'll do a WIP on it. 

Thanks sickdude!
