Revell Jolly Green Giant and Hasegawa Skyraider on the Bench today.
Posted by cbaltrin on Sunday, October 24, 2021 3:40 PM

Two kits that have been on the shelf for a while that I broke out this weekend. Both 1/72 scale.   The Old Revell HH3 Jolly Green Giant, which I finally finished up with all the filling and sanding, and attached the tail stabilizer. Gona black out all the windows (what else can you do with 1970's clear parts?).  Next is the Hasegawa Skyraider. Don't know how this kit got shelved as there is nothing hard about it. I think it could have been the lack of markings options initially... then I was looking for some replacement guns... Well I have my guns now and Lieutnant America markings from a Wolfpack sheet so no more excuses on his one !

Love the blackout idea!

In the pattern: Lindberg's 1/48 Snark and Scale Shipyard's 1/48 Balao Class Sub! Started my Prince of Wales for the Ships of the British Flag GB...oh and I bought another P-38F/G to use the other nose art Exito Decal (in-flight for this one), & in keeping with MC's hydra theory I bought another F-5E to do in FROG camo!

Hello!

Glad you like it. I've written more about it here:

http://www.vietnam.net.pl/A1moden.htm

In short, it was an adventure to get the mix of weapons together. From the outside the SUU-23 were in the Hasegawa kit, the rocket launchers were in the Hasegawa weapons set. The M47 WP bombs were scratchbuilt. The small fuel tank is from the Revell/Monogram Skyraider and the SUU-11 minigun pod is from a Mistercraft Cobra (old Matchbox rebox) kit.

If you want the M47 bombs, maybe I can draw them up in 3D and you could then 3D print them?

Good luck with your builds and have a nice day

My idea of build when i was 10 yrs old was no paint and basically squirted glue in the box and shake until model stuck together.I did this while sitting on a park bench on the way home from the hobby shop.
