My life was put on hold for two weeks so this is where I'm at with the A-10.  I'm thinking the insignias ar too lite.

Bob, great work on the Chevy, she looks really good, and very pumped. Sounds like some major surgery hidden under the hood!

 

Robert, the Freedom has come together really well, she looks very tidy and well detailed. The drone is cute!

 

Melbourne is done. Despite all the difficulties I made for myself, I am pretty happy with how she came out, including the scratch building and casting – still a lot to learn there too. One thing I didn’t get round to doing was putting a replacement nameplate on the stand – I was going to 3D print but the software made my head hurt …

 

Robert, thanks so much for running this GB which prompted me to step outside my comfort zone and have a go at a ship. Great to follow everyone else’s builds too, a lot of quality work and great tips to put into use later.

68, you might be right - I needed a double take to locate them...

68GT I agree, decals look too light. I bet they're close to the same color as your paint after looking at your postimg ones.

lostagain I love the Melbourne. PE was just the right add for it. Great finish.

In the pattern: a dual build of my KittyHawk F-5's.

Bob, love the car, it turned out very great!  Thanks for joining and sharing it!  Any preference for the gallery?

Lostagain, that ship is fantastic.  All that resin casting you did took it to the next level.  Thanks for sharing it!  Do you have a photo preference?  

68GT, agree with you, decal version 2 is the way to go.  The Warthog is really turning out well!

It's been a fun ride and thanks to all who made my first GB into a successful one!

Thank you Lostagain-and your Melbourne is really impressive-great job.

68GT-the A-10 looks good-what kit & scale is your A-10?  I'll be following closely.

Robert-Thank you-either of the full side views are good for me.  Looking forward to your second GB!

Its the 1/72 Academy kit.  It's not as good as their A-37 kit but much better than the Monogram/Revell kit.

Really ooking forward to the completion, it is one of my favorite aircraft ever since playing Silent Thunder way back when on my old Windows 95 PC.   (An A10 simulator game)

Too bad the Revelogram 1/48 kit swore me off of building one ever since.

Finally got some bright sun for a completion picture, never mind the chicken coop in the background.  It  was too cold for proper sheet placement!

Well it's a little late but I finally wrapped up the A-10. Not sure what will become of the 2 Phantoms but I think the one that the dog ate is toast.

Nice work on the Warthog, glad you finished it off!  Want me to add the first picture to the finished log?
