Hi gents! Here I'll try to build V-173 at 1:48 scale from Special Hobby. That's well known and as far as I know ultimate kit of this plane at 48 scale. My build was started at May 2016. I'll try to demonstrate some stages and current state in my next posts.

The Vought V-173 "Flying Pancake" was an experimental test aircraft built as part of the Vought XF5U "Flying Flapjack". This aircraft is now part of the Smithsonian collection. It was restored at the Vought Aircraft plant in Grand Prairie, and is now on loan to the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas, Texas. Pics thanks to GeorgeUSA.
