Oh, crap, now I will have to finish  my P-47.... I have not touched it in over 1  year. I just lost all motivation for some reason... Probably has something to do with 20+ in progress builds...  Confused

Well right now I have two TBD Devastators ready for priming/paint and a Mirage 2000 not far behind. So after these 3, how about a F5-F Agressor and a P39 Airacobra to buld for 'Da family'...Capisce.

Free, no worries. Please do share your work and finish these up. 

 

And you are so right. As a kid, each one would have been a day project to build and paint... perhaps not up to my current grown up standards, but...

Hate to drag this GB out of the ashes but I figure if I post some WIP pics of the Zero and Skipjack I might be motivated to finish them.  About 40 pcs of plastic between them and you ought to be able to bang em both out in a long weekend.  Here I am almost a year later.  So here are some pics of the Zero

That Deuce looks fantastic Steve, I wish we saw more of them here.

Here's some progress on the Corvette. The body is sprayed, but it still needs a gloss coat and a polish. There are decals for the hood, but given their age I thought I'd test them. They hold together OK, but there is a gluggy white 'glue' that seems to remain visible after the decal is applied. Has anyone got any fixes for this ? I haven't seen it for a long time and it may be specific to Monogram decals.

Since I've taken the photo I've also sprayed the chassis, and primed the engine. The chassis had quite a few sink marks that needed to be filled. It took me a long time to get my old jar of MM Chevrolet Engine Red open,  I worked out that I last opened it in 1991, but the paint looks fine now that its open.

Cheers

Tony

I'm just taking it one GB at a time.

Eaxctly one month overdue, I am calling this one done 

 

Well, aside from waiting for some EZ Line to arrive so that I can add an antenna wire, I am calling this one done. This build was a good learning experience for planning to improve a few more AMT P-40s that are in my stash. But I won’t be tacking those anytime soon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and with the Me-109F that I built last summer. Although these two exact aircraft may or may not have met in combat, their units did starting in August of 42

GMorrison

For the Don's consideration, I have a Beech Staggerwing kit from AMT that was slipped to me for deep discount at the LHS. Round2 reissue.

I've been working on 30s aircraft, might be fun.

 

Approved

I’ve been working on the final touches on this project. On Sunday I added the propeller, main landing gear struts, belly tank, and a strip of tissue paper in the tail wheel well to represent the canvas boot many P-40s had in there... and cover up the seam... I took these photos yesterday

 

 

 

This morning before work I painted the tires and tail wheel well boot... but no photos yet. All ready for the final bits now...

Thanks Stik. I'll take that liberty. I've progressed on the cleanup of parts, but still no paint. Maybe this weekend.

Cheers

No worries about the deadline Tony. Mine is now 19 days past due. Life happens. Not that I show off GB badges anymore anyways.

Just build your project and share your work with us here, whether you’re on deadline or not.

Apologies for not commenting on the models in your posts, I can't open the links when I'm at work. I'll have another look from home later.

I've realised that I'm only a couple of weeks out from the deadline for my 2nd build, so I've started the other Monogram Ultimates 1/43 kit, the 1967 Corvette. The body is ready to prime.

Cheers

Tony

Lots of little progress bits this weeeknd pushing me close to the finish line

 

All sub assemblies and parts painted except for the tires...

 

 

Then I began panel line washes on the upper and lower surfaces

 

 

 

And lastly I glued the exhausts to the engine access panels, and glued those into place...

 

 

Getting closer now...
