I finished my Deltas and am not happy with the result, they will be done again at a later date.

The doctor said I have depression.  I can't seem to concentrate on one thing for long, this build will be an attempt to clear my head of weird scenes and get myself back on track

and hopefully finish my other WIPs.  Enough of the sad stuff and get on with it.

 

Sometime ago Navy Bird did a yellow and black stripped Anson.  Love black and yellow strips.  I didn't want to build an Anson and found this little Northrop.  Love a Northrop.

 

Some pics.

Ha ha, when I read a Nomad I thought it would be a boxy STOL transport!

 

Hope you feel better soon mate.

Going to follow with interest. I have some target tug decals for one of my Special Hobby kits in the stash (forget which one, might be a Firefly or a Roc or something) and those yellow/black stripes will take some mad masking skillz.

Never noticed this model before, should be interesting.

 

I noted your 'love a Northrop' comment.  Never really seen before but there is a very 'Northropish' look to a lot of their designs.

Yeah! I'm always up for something Canadian. I've got one of those in the stash, so I'll be following this build.

Me too!  I came for the airplane built where I work, but stayed for the new type I've never heard of and am keen to learn about :)

Like Chris said.  I've got this same kit earmarked for that model table once I get some others cleaned up, so I'll be following this with interest.

Thank you for your concern.  I resigned from my job today and I think I feel better, mmmmm.  I worked for a meat works in Casino, which I call "Fools Paradise".  I was a cleaner starting work at 1600 hrs and finishing at 2230 hrs, did this job for over 25 years.  In managements wisdom they decided to contract out the cleaning to another company.  They offered me a job starting at 0400 hrs and finishing at 1320 hrs.  I could not come to grips with going to bed at 2100 hrs (I felt like a 5 year old going to bed that early) and waking at 0300 hrs.  

 

Some progress:  Some interior green splashed about and ready for some detail painting.

Once again thank you for concern and thanks for looking.

Crikey, that is a big decision to have to make especially after the length of service you had, I know what you mean about the going to bed early, I used to work shifts and get up at 0400 hrs for the early worm shift , it was nice finishing early but could never go to bed too early, always felt like I was missing out!!!

Good luck with your build and I hope it can help to make you feel better too.

All the best

Chris

Thanks bigbadbadge and VG 33, I hope mine comes out nearly as good as yours.  I must be reading posts with closed eyes, I have just noticed tonyot has added a link to his fantastic builds of this kit. 

A mate has been there for 49 years and does not know what he is going to do when he retires, he has no hobbies.  I feel sorry for people who have no hobbies, that TV will drive you insane.

 

Progress continues, the fuselage ready to glue together.  This is a very nice little kit, parts fit well.

Finally an update..  I thought I would have the yellow on last Friday, but alas.....

 

Filling finally done and ready for undercoat.

Seat belts and engine started.  I was going to buy PE seat belts, changed my mind as I don't think the belts and much of the cockpit will be seen.

Thanks for looking.

Finally an update. There are many thin coats of yellow on this model, but I am happy with the cover, finally.

Time to paint the stripes.

I have not been totally lazy, have started a Training and Assessment course, nearly finished a 1/35 Academy M1A2 TUSK and my son has talked me into building an army of grots, he said it is good for my mental health, mmmmm.
