1/72 Brewster SB2A-3 Buccaneer, Special Hobby


Recommended Posts

Good evening, dears! It's my next model. The model's main error is a very irregular canopy visor. It's absolutely wrong angle. I grinded down the front of the visor at an angle to 0 to correct the situation a little. There are several mistakes in the instructions. Better to look at photographs and drawings. I separated the landing gear and inserted chrome tubes there. Added some details from stocks. Generally, this is a labor-intensive model in the result.

Very nice outcome. Your panel lining and dirty streaking technique is very effective. What method do you use if you don't mind me asking?

Hello Fuad,

 

Your build is superb, and your style is remarkable.

Riveting is light, and I suppose you painted the tire treads as a lure.

The construction may have been quite intense, but isn't that a way to have fun?

 

Thank you for sharing the photos of your great achievements.

 

Regards,

Eric-Snafu35

Brilliant as usual!

Quite a nice-looking plane to me - although I believe other types won out for USN/USAAF contracts in the end.

👍👍

It's just ordinary "washes" from MIG production, nothing special.

Really nice Fuad, it looks like they took a Buffalo and stretched it out!

Great work as usual, Fuad!  Brewester originally started as a Buggy Company, later got into aviation.     Besides the Buffalo and Buccaneer, they didnt do much other original production.  They had a contract to construct the Corsair, but the Quality Control was so Abysmal that I believe they pulled the Contract....it was a minor wartime scandal....

Beautiful work Fuad! Well done! 

What is your method when you apply washes to the rivets? 

 

Best,

Well, it's a challenge to make something beautiful from any Brewster design, but you succeeded!

First you need to make the riveting with the riveter. Then you need to paint the model and apply acrylic varnish ("Future" for example). After the varnish, you can use MIG washes.

Thanks Fuad.

 

Do you cover the entire area with the wash and then clean after certain time or do you go rivet by rivet? How long do you wait for the wash to settle before cleaning? 

 

Thanks, 

Nikola

I apply the wash with a brush along the holes and lines. You can simply cover everything entirely. Depends on your patience. I wait 20-30 minutes until the wash is completely dry. Then I wipe large surfaces with a napkin, and wipe small surfaces with an ear cleaner sticks.
