FAA builds ASV Anson, Sea Gladiators and now with added Skyraider


Recommended Posts

The Anson looks fantastic Chris, but I also see what you see with the roundels.  Aside from finding replacements I’m not what could be done without an airbrush, though you’re so good with a brush you could paint them I reckon.

Missed a few pages but it's great to see that Anson coming together in her final coat. Lovely aircraft and looked like a lovely kit to boot! Can't wait to see that Skyraider come together though. 

Thanks Lewis,  looking forward to the Skyraider too  was afraid to start until kindly BMers assisted on a ref request.

The RWD5 looks lovely. As does the Anson!


I am however wondering with the Skyraider whether the FAA went through a phase of not using an aeroplane unless it was uglier than the Fairey Gannet?

😄 yes they did look at some unusual designs  would love a Semew one day.  

The little RWD was a lovely little kit to build, I have seen some online where they have really gone to town.

Some beautiful detail on the wipers Chris, and the Annie is looking lovely with decals in place! Look forward to seeing the Skyraider take shape, particularly with such  a personal connection!

 

Cheers,

Thanks Roger, pleased mainly with the Anson and the Flightpath bits are quite nice too . I had to do a Skyraider as one connected to one of Dad's ships so was pleased when the Sword kit was released. I hope I can do it justice.

Was thinking exactly that too! Some terrific detail work going on Chris.

 

The Skyraider looks very  businesslike,  I think it will have great presence when done.

Thanks Richie getting close to getting the Annie on the undercarriage which will be great.  Always been fascinated with the

 

Skyraiders and so excited to start on this, got all my paint and decals now so will be all ahead  on this one.

 

Thanks everyone 

Chris

I see what you mean about those wing roundels Chris, very “in your face”. Are you planning to weather the model at all, that might tone things down a bit.

Thanks Max, I  will only do mild weathering as they were looked after quite well, but there will be some oil, dirt and chipping.

Thanks Mark, the red centres are just too big however I have just, whilst writing this reply, had a simple idea which should work  to remedy the sizes . It should work on all roundels hopefully. 

 

Thanks guys

Blimey Chris,

I’ve just caught up with this after you mentioned the dust getting in your Anson on my Canberra thread.

I thought my painting was good with my airbrush but your results with a paintbrush are far better.

Thanks Brian, very kind of you to say that,  but I imagine your airbrush work is neater fella. Yes dust got in despite masking of openings etc, which is a real shame.   Thanks for all the likes and looking in.

Thanks Alistair,  me too  was worried about the Skyraider initially, but following information kindly received from everyone on my request for info thread, I can now proceed.

 

Thanks guys

Chris
