'Golden Wings' GOSHAWK Biplane (LIndberg 1/48)
Posted by gregbale on Sunday, November 10, 2019 1:57 PM

This was a relaxing OOB build between more complicated projects.

Lindberg's ancient F11C-2 Goshawk is basic as nails, but a nice straightforward molding. It's fairly clean compared to many of their other contemporary offerings (in terms of mold-release pits and such), with no detail to speak of, but captures the sort of stumpy blowfly look of many of the between-the-wars fighters rather nicely. Color scheme via the single kit decal option, but those decals went down beautifully. Rigging with EZ-Line.

Everything came out looking great on this! Ya gotta love those Golden Wings   USN Aircraft. Probably the ultimate in colorful markings. 

Very nice job on this old kit!

Those mid-war US aircraft are few and far between these days. Yours looks great!

Greg, I have that kit, partially built sitting on the shelf of doom. Sure would like to finish it. Your build really looks nice. Very well done. How did you paint the engine/cowl?

OK. On the bench:

Thanks, Frank!

I brush-painted the engine portion and the cowling interior using good old Testors 'square bottle' enamels (my standard pick for detailing), then masked with Silly Putty and sprayed with Tamiya acrylic. [If you look closely, you can see where a tiny wisp of the blue crept under the putty. Didn't really notice it till just now! Big Smile]

Thanks, Greg. I'll have to try that. The engine/cowling are what's holding me back.

Looks great!

Some of those old Lindberg kits are junk, others with a little extra work, turn out pretty nice.  The JN-4 is another of their better kits.

Nicely finished! 

Lindberg kits are hit and miss. I love a challenge though lol.

Nice!

I plan to build one using Mark Buchler's resin set.

I have to admit, if I'd been aware of that set, I would have been sorely tempted! Big Smile
