GMorrison-being a fan of quick & successful, I'm wondering if you are launching a D-Day GB and if so, what are the details?

Thanks

bob

Kind of a 6 Day war. Or an extended weekend GB.

Any participation more than welcome.

Too late but I'll look for another like it. Fun but old kit.

Unofficial sources have confirmed that an Academy 1/72 P-51B apparently came home with me from Scalefest yesterday.  Supposedly it has Bud Anderson's Old Crow markings with invasion stripes.  There's also a rumor that construction  has begun.

Welcome aboard Buddy

Good start GM-looks like an interesting/fun build

I pulled a 1/48 Accurate Minatures F-6B Mustang and did get the interior components painted yesterday-hope to get the PE belts on tomorrow after work and some detail painting done-will post pics once the cockpit is complete.

Way to go Bob, we end when we end. Yes it's a fun build and mostly a paint-up.

Shot the humbrol 30 Dark Green over loose paper masks to get the soft edge camo.

Well, it won't be quick however, it will be successfull-eventually.  My camera ate my early construction pics, so we get to go straight to the painting stage.  I decided to try something new.  Normally I use Tamiya's OD straight out of the rattle can.  It gives a nice, smooth finish, so that if the decals behave, a base gloss coat isn't needed (if I'm building for my shelf, I usually stop once the decals are on, because that usually means I'm done.). But, I wanted a more used appearance, so I opened up a bottle of Model Master Faded OD.  Probably more of an armor color, but it does the job.

In primer.

The tape means the Medium Gray undersides have already been shot.

In OD.

Let the decalling begin.

She sat like this for a little while, then I realized that I should have put the bottom set of stripes on first, since they are keyed to the landing gear bays.  So, out comes the brush and some Solvaset, and away the top stripes go.  Fortunately, I had a spare set of decals from the last time I built this kit.

Got the bottoms on relatively straight, now for the tops.

And this is where she's at at the moment Capt. Bondo.  By the way, I hate Academy decals.  I now know why I don't have an invasion striped a/c in the museum, they're a major pain in the tuckus.  More to follow eventually.

Great pony, Buddy.

Resurrecting this thread only to say I've finally finished my Mustang. Here's the pics.

Okay, the F6F doesn't belong.

Nice work on your Mustang-great paint/decal work.

I've got my F6-B sitting in the box with the interior painted that I started for this GB....maybe this will motivate me to finish it before the next D-Day anniversary.

Way to go Buddy! I did finish that glider, but later in 16 I moved, my Dad died, and I remodeled the new house.

Good work, Bob!
