She's a real beauty!  You don't see many of these old Williams Brothers kits built any more.  The Golden Age of air racing!

Nearing the bench in my queue is a series of Williams racing planes.  I have already done the Hall Racer, have the two place Geebee, the Caudron and the Weddel Williams.  I have also built the Lindberg Turner Meteor.

My goal is to have five racing planes in 1:32 for this years Nordiccon, to enter in the Collection subject.

You can find the kits pretty easily though.  I have managed t.o collect all but one- the Traveiair.  I have a who recently built the WW plane with the same livery as you, so I will build one of they give decals fof.  I'm going to build the red and dlack one.

Missileman2000,

Is Nordicon held in Minnesota and if yes when is it being held this year?  I live in WI and I've always wanted to venture over for that show.

Very nice job on the silver paint, that always has scared me so I've ... never done it.

I have one of the Williams Brothers Douglas World Cruisers four-planes-in-one kits that will be built, someday. I'm glad the company is still in business.

That's a swell airplane! Nice clean build. Gilmore the Lion would love it.

I've got the Schoenfeldt Firecracker on my built shelf.

I also built the Curtiss Commando. Big impressive a/c.

Thanks Eugene,

Hey Eugene!

       Is that a Williams Bros kit? I have always liked their products for their cleanliness and purity of assembly. I have over the years built the C-46 in many airline decor and civilian company decor. At one time I succeeded in giving away 34 of them. Great kit of a great plane!
