  3. Hi everyone, This is my new model – little and yellow-wing Fairchild 24 in service with US Coast Guard where it was designated as J2K-2. In fact the kit allows to reproduce only Fairchild 24 as restored nowadays and painted in USGC colours. Original USCG’s J2K-2 had several variations not reproduced in the kit: different engine cowling, smaller tail, wider undercarriage struts (the pair that joins wheels and fuselage), rear windows were installed upside down. The kit by Legato is fairly good for a short-run. I assembled it almost OOB. Major scratchbuild being rotating propeller. Fit is reasonable with most difficulties around fitting transparencies – in particular front screen fit with awful gaps along almost all sides. Some sanding and extra stripes of plastic helped though. Another drawback of the kit was the decal sheet with some colours visibly out of register – black and light blue in my case. As a result USCG (and Israeli) insignia were unusable so I borrowed USCG insignia from another kit, but had to spray white and blue roundels as a background. Also decal representing stripes on the rudder did not perfectly match the rudder shape. I expected this and probably could better spray at least white and red stripes. According to historic photoes and USCG documents both “USCG” letterings have to be placed on the lower surfaces of the wing – not one on lower and one on upper sides as suggested by the instruction. So here are the pictures: And with another yellow-wing airplane in my collection - Lockheed Vega: Best regards! Dennis
