Hallo This a/c was an experiment. The kit is from Roden. But I designed etched parts for Cooper State Models. And I used them. What was the idea: To achieve a perfect rigging on a 48 scale model. Together with strut support plates from etched parts. The thing which was the problem, was the gluing process. You need C/A for the etched parts. To keep the area clean before gluing the struts, this is very difficult. I also did the DH2 in 48 and 32 with this method. At the BE-12 finally I failed. So I gave up the project of the strut support plates from etched parts. Maybe
Evening all, My first RFI for quite some time. It's the Roden 1/48 North American T-28B. Built for my model club's Covid-19 virtual group build and a lightning fast one for me - it only took just over three months (rather than my usual three years odd!) Not a particularly enjoyable build, some bits of the kit are great, others awful. Paint was Hycote Gloss White out of a rattle can and a mix of MR Paint British International Orange and Signal Red to get as close to the FS12197 U.S. International Orange that I could. Anyway; North American T-28B Trojan, BuAer
I am declaring this model complete. It is my interpretation of:- Gloster Sea Gladiator N5517/6*A 813(F) NAS, HMS Eagle Mediterranean Jul '40 Flown by Commander CL Keighly-Peach RN This aircraft was involved in the destruction of a number of enemy aircraft; 11.07.40 S79 Destroyed 13.07.40 SM79 & S79 Destroyed 17.07.40 S79 Destroyed 31.08.40 Z506B Destroyed. This model has had a long gestation period. It started well in August '16 but for some reason I just lost mojo with it and it went and sat on the shelf. Going back to the kit
Hi all, Just thought I`d share some pic`s I took today, now the weathers a bit nicer, of my latest completion: Rodens 1/48 Staggerwing, Finished as one of the options in the box, a UC-43 of the Eighth Air Force, somewhere in England, 1943 Mostly OOB, but I added a roof to the Wheel Wells, made a `A` frame and spar that was missing from the kit The build was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be, with only the transparencies giving any real trouble As you may have guessed, it`s another one of my Brother in Laws kits I`ve built for him.... ...hence it`s not South Ea
