I have a bit of an enthusiasm at the moment for these twin - tailed, twin - engined planes from the Lockheed Co. They played a major role in taking the makers from the brink of collapse and closure right up to the top of the global plane - making industry. The more I find out about them, the more I like them. I've got a collection of kits to work on, and I don't think it's all going to be in one nonstop frenzy of plastic bashing. But there could be a fair bit of Lockheed ahead for me and my tube of glue. Here's what I've got, so far... (I know...!) And I got 2 of these boxes of joy... So, the idea is to put anything I do in this ongoing project on here, and thus keep it all in one place. I'm not visualising anything military with these, apart possibly from the 2nd Ventura, maybe... This sums up the vision I have of what I'm trying to achieve... Silver Birds! I've made a start on the Airfix Hudson kit (!) to be an L14, and I've been knocking 7 bells out of a PV1 to civilian-ise it without trying to make a fancy Howard 500 conversion. I took a few pictures on the way, and I'll get the progress so far on here as time permits. There's a Curtiss C46 on the bench right now, waiting patiently for progress and completion, and she's put up with quite a lot of me fooling around with the Lockheeds already!
