Anigrand 1/144 C-5

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

This has been languishing for a while so I will crack on with it. I have the Drawdecal's wing walkway set too but all else is out of the box. Even in 1/144 scale it is rather large!

I have one of those but don't have any room to put it when finished.  I'll spend some time watching your build and hopefully pick up some inspiration.

Braver man than me, I have seen the 1/72 one.

... and you've got a 1:144 Testors' issue to build one day too!

I'll be interested to see how the Anigrand kit goes together.

 

I built the Revell kit some years ago and it is in dire need of a refurb

Ok, well all main parts have been assembled, now a lot of filling and rubbing down will take place.

Just to give an idea of size, this is it next to a 1/72 Hurricane:

Anigrand kits always seem to be a masterclass in filling, sanding and priming. It is pretty big though. Should be impressive when done.

Slow progress is being made (as is usual for me) but the big girl is taking shape. You are definitely right Sleeper, she is a filler queen (I am sure there is a song in there somewhere...).

Glacial progress continues, with still more filling and rubbing down. I sprayed primer to see how much work is still required. Answer = a lot!

A bit more progress, the wings are now attached. More filler will be required yet again, but she is beginning to look like a Galaxy. I doubt I will finish this before the end date but I will post pics on here regardless.

Clearly not a kit to be rushed, but it looks like your efforts are paying off :thumbsup2:

Hi guys,

 

Definitely not going to be finished in time but she is primed and ready for a coat of AMC Grey.
