I caught up with this right at the end.

 

I have a Magna Sea Prince; it is quite scary in the box: so very heavy. As you said; the only game in town.

 

I can relate to your challenges here.

 

What a fantastic result! Your side window solution is a good one and noted.

 

Your work on the white metal really has paid off; it looks really good.

 

:goodjob:

I have the Magna Sea Prince as well and am tempted but it is an even more complex aircraft. I remember seeing loads of Sea Prince's when at BB camp in Lossiemouth way back in the late 60s. IIRC they were a fairly dull weathered silver colour with seriously faded pinkish orange dayglo. I bought a Hunting Percival some time ago (Special Hobby I think) contemplating a conversion. I don't know if it's been done before but if anybody knows the principle differences that would be good.

 

 I have few Magna kits in the stash, some prototypes picked up cheap, a late mark Firefly, a JetstreamT2/3 and both AEW  Skyraider and Gannet, and a Sturgeon as well as a TT Mosquito conversion. Apart from the Gannet, there still the only game in town. 

 

Thanks

That sounds a great and alternative colllection 825 :) .

The Sturgeon appealed to me too. It would be great to see you have a go at another one of their kits :thumbsup2: .

 

I fell for the Sea Prince after seeing one at a now defunct air museum near the Lake District. I can't remember the name of the museum but, also outside, they had a Phantom, a Vulcan and a Lightning (that they apparently got for £5.00!).

 

I was allowed inside the Sea Prince, even able to sit in the driving seat and twiddle with the controls.

 

I would live to know what happened to those exhibits, and which actual Sea Prince it was. The Phantom was impressive; if my memory serves me correctly, it was almost white in colour.

 

All the best

That Magna Sow's Ear definitely suits your Silk Purse treatment! I've been using your build pics for detailing on my Dove from a Heron restoration in the Shelf of Shame Group Build. Well done.

Just one thing - isn't the top part of the canopy meant to be painted, not transparent?

For the early style canopy it appears to be transparent. Have a look at the picture at the top of page 3 in the postings. 

 

And this one too, which is the Aircraft modelled.

Oh, so it is! Completely missed that. I apologize.

Me too - that transparency is so clear you really can't see the df fairing on the pics! Bit late to add the internal aerial now, right enough! Said it before - great job.
