Welcome me to the RFI of my Revell Stearman Kaydet 1/72 It's been a while since this little bird was finished but I didn't have a spare moment in the sun to take the pics. I had to go to the docs today so I had a few hours to myself, I got some nice pictures taken in the garden with some nice autumn sun. The WIP can be found here. I scratched the office from plasticard. re-built the prop painted with Tamiy acrylics and rigged with ez-line. An excellent fun little build to bring the love back after the Mamoth prowler build. Here we go then, Welome the Stearman Kaydet. (Yellow Peril) 1/72 And there we are. I really enjoyed this build, the rigging seemed to go well giving me some confidence to do a bigger string bag I have in the stash. I hope you all like the shots and thanks to everyone who helped along the way. Take care y'hear. Johnny Ramone.
Something post-WW2...The Revell Stearman Kaydet in 1/72nd scale, used in Israel in the late 40s and 50s as a training aircraft. The build is OOB, with only the rigging in .004 line (drilldrilldrill) and Vallejo colors. the decals are aftermarket from a wonderful set made by Xtradecal. Among the options are a Nationalist Chinese and Peruvian craft (that's next) as well as several US birds. I feel that when I find a kit that builds OOB easily and without fuss, I stick to the manufacturer's designs. This is a good example. An easy kit, some descent painting and lovely, thin perfectly registered decals make the model a bit more special. Hope you like it! --JDCM
