This is the second 87g-1 model I've built. I am planning to paint a tan and/or green camouflage with my new airbrush. I'm going to try weathering on this model since I've gotten pretty good at the painting part. I finished airbrushing the base tan on the wings and small pieces and finished all of the blue. I plan to make the canopies open and no pilots in it, and gear are always down anyway. I'm planning to paint one of these designs but I'm not sure which one yet. Input with this is appreciated! I'm not sure if I should put the under wing guns on yet either. Here are the top of the wings and a couple miscellaneous pieces including the rear gun, the unfinished gear, etc. This is the bottom and top of the tail. Here is the canopy glass which I will hand paint and the finished wheels. I have yet to finish the fuselage but the taped parts are blue and the pilots and gunner is installed. These are the decals I plan to use, and of course they are the only decals I have.
Below is my take on the following photo of the Spirit of St Louis. While not the most technically complicated model, I found the challenge being to make a realistic looking toy-sized model of a somewhat toy-like looking full-sized plane. Thanks for looking. CF.
