Hi all, A post this evening on using foam with large vac models has prompted the thought that I should post work to date here so that: a. It's more accessible b: I might actually extract a digit and crack on as she has become a bit of a running joke (well - the lack of progress anyway!) Early foto's quite poor I'm afraid - only digital camera I had to hand at the time - but you should get the gist... So - going back to Jan 2000 - in a Galaxy far, far away... Let me introduce you all to Connie - an elegant lady that I'm sure I'll be spending quite some time with ) Connie is the ID Mode
My current project is the venerable Heller 1/72 EC-121 AKA WV-2 kit. In another thread it was suggested that I do a WIP for it because of all the after market sets I am using and after some thought I have decided to inflict one on you . This kit has been on my pile for a few years, but early last year a fellow member of my modeling club brought in the magnificent build. At the meeting he went through the a litany of errors with the kit and the after market parts that he had gotten for it. After the meeting I sort of went on a buying spree and bought a boat load of them,
Does anyone know what color, if any, the wheel wells and landing gear of the WV-2 Warning Star were painted? I am working on the Heller kit and the instructions say they were unpainted aluminum. That is probably true of the civilian versions, but I have my doubts about the military versions. I have found pictures on the web of museum display Air Force EC-121's and it looks like the interiors were white. But those are not the Navy version, and you can't always trust museum display aircraft for accuracy. Anyone know, have pictures? Thanks Howard
