I know the feeling.. Cutting into a kit for a conversion immediately makes me wish I hadn't done it.. But that Fort's a beaut!

thanks for the kind words.  that particular fort build fought hard.  i started with tears in my eyes but i had a goal.  when i got to the point of the markings i had to go with general, time period, style, and generic unit and a/c markings.  that was more than a little disappointing.  the end result though was satisfying.

thanks manny, forgot to say that particular bird has an extensive attempt to scratch out some interior detail.  the access doors were open for a reason.

Hey Joe.. really liking this Yes.Yes.. I have a conversion to.. someday..someday...

 

the conversion isnt a tough one really.  just have to get over any fear of screwing up.  if you dont get over your fear you are sure to screw up.  i learned with the build though that using acrylic as a filler doesnt work very well for me.  had heard that using acrylic as in fingernail acrylic was a wonderful thing.  well it cost me several days of nonstop sanding as the stuff set up quick and was difficult to sand.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

 

Revell just re-issued this beast recently.

If they put a new canopy... the canopy was HORRIBLE... in the box I would consider doing another in an Atlantic sheme.  Great kit.  Awesome looking bird.

maybe so, but it was a color option. it claims to be from a "Training Squadron in Corpus Christie TX – 1942"

either way, it looks cool.

Some cellphone shots from my son's first model. I painted the pit, did the masking, and some of the exterior painting he did all the rest with me giving instructions. I did also do all the annoying little stencil decals and let him do the main ones. Somehow we did manage to get the gear on backwards, and  a gap on the bottom of the wings. This just has me wanting to build another to eliminate that gap and naturally do the gear right.

He has a P-51B and a P-40B to tackle next solo. I think he is going with the P-51B first based on my recommendations as this is a fairly easy kit to build, while the P-40 has the issue at the wing root to deal with. I have been amazed by how excited he has been about all this, but when I stop and think about it, kids don't build models anymore so this is all totally new and exciting for him.

Never said it wasn't factual, just that I'd never seen it before... Wink

 But since you say that it's from a Training Squadron (any idea which one?), it makes perfect sense.. Initially, I was thinking some kind of one-off, "transitional" paint-scheme or something... Guess I shoulda thought, yeah, the Navy's gotta have SOME kinda "yellow peril" paint for float-planes and flying boats to steer real pilots away from the Nuggets, lol...

Here's a shot of one circa 1942/43 at Corpus Christi

I have seen the scheme before on an After Market decal sheet awhile back or in one of my books some years back.

That's as good as I can do right now myself.  Maybe better.  LOL.

I bought several kits for my son when he was in grade school and tried to help him get started, but he wasn't really interested.  If he had been, I might have gotten back into the hobby 25 years sooner.

You're a good man, Big Dog.  Your son might end up being the only kid on his block who knows anything about history, or aviation even.  Keep him flying topside up.

Salute!
