Revell 1/72 Boeing P-26 Peashooter


Recommended Posts

Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen of the jury,

 

I present before you the results of much toil over the past few months, as described in excruciating detail here: 

 

 

The resin set by Starfighter decals was used along with other minor improvements I made. The major feature from my perspective is the paint job. I masked and painted the chevrons and cheatline as well as the tail and roll-bar yellow/blue details instead of using the supplied decals. The other thing was my first attempt at using lengths of photo etched metal for bracing.

 

I know there are many problematic areas for which I apologise. But I did learn a lot with this build. Hopefully the next one will have less errors.

 

Here are the pictures:

Thanks for looking and... have mercy on me :please:

I love how they actually called this thing a peashooter 

 

Someone must have had a sense of humour I guess :shrug:

Excellent Peashooter!

 

I wonder what a livery like that should be called… anti-camouflage? 😉

 

Slick modelling!

 

Thank you @Spitfire31 The colours scheme was the main reason I decided to build it 🙂

Great paint job and the bracing looks good too. I have not read the wip thread but it looks to me as any problems were duly overcome. It’s a lovely wee model and as a bonus it won’t take up all the shelf space either. Well done 👍
