Cessna Skymaster O2 ICM 1/48

spacer.pngspacer.pngspacer.pngA small teaser of one of my latest finished models. The kit is really nice, except the very weak main gear. I used a little wire to strengthen it. The decals are very thin and needs only a very short dip into the water!!! Thx to ICM for the very good support to sent me spare parts.

Very convincing 'suck'n'blow'! The figures look good, too, and photographically, the background really mixes in with the foreground.

 

Slick work!

 

Kind regards,

Great build and the diorama really sets it off. Interesting about the landing gear.  The old Testors kit had the same problem.  I have the ICM kit, so will watch out for that issue

Thank you very much Greg!  There is a conversion kit out . Brass undercarriage from Aerocraft models. I think that’s a good choice. I was really disappointed with that one from the kit.

My goodness that's good. I love the diorama and the photography as well as the lovely aircraft. I thought the revetment was a little low but I suspect you did that for artistic reasons, and I completely agree.

Thx Bertie,

 

you are 100 % right. It is a little bit low for that one. But I „borrowed „ it from my diorama „Low level hell“ with a OH-6 Loach. You can see a little video of it on YouTube or somewhere here in my topics. And this revetment was build from original B/w photographs. So hope you don’t mind that the Cessna crew took it

 

Cheers
