Gary Brantley

Finally! Paint to plastic at last! :)

Recommended Posts

I finally sat down at the bench and got to work. 😀   The last scale modeling I did was in February 2017, completing a Hobbycraft Hurricane.  Yesterday, I started in earnest on my Tamiya 1/48 Meteor Mk I.  I'm building the No. 1 prototype,  DG202/G, and got all the aluminum paint done, cockpit and seat, and have the wheels and tires and landing gear ready for paint too.  I have to say that it felt good to begin work on a kit at last.  I did find that my jar of Mr. Surfacer 1000 had dried up; had to use a bit of "White Out" for a seam filler.  I'm going to Austin, Texas on Friday and will have a shopping list prepared for a trip to King's Hobby Shop, one of the area's finest and best-stocked.   Hopefully, I can buy what I need and resist the siren song of more new kits. 😉

Ditto on the workbench (might even be messier than mine :) ). Looking forward to seeing the Meteor take shape.

Your workbench looks very busy, Gary!

You should see the rest of the room, it's crazy!

 

I've got this kit in my micro stash Gary, so I'll be interested to see how it goes.

Okay Gorby, you asked for it. 😉  It has been a bit tidier; here it is all cleaned up for the final push on my Intruder:

Lol. Hmmm...those are the same pics that you saw before Gorby.  Your memory played a trick on you; the shock of seeing all that clutter magnified its intensity methinks. 😁  It merely looks tidier now!  And, if you could see it right at this moment...hoo boy! :giggle:
