Airfix Shackleton AEW2 1/72 ++FINISHED++


Recommended Posts

Well, it's been a while but I've not been totally idle

The surface prep could have been a lot better, but it'll have to do

Also,, the stencils (have I mentioned I hate stencils?) on the port wing are too far back

 

I still have the port lower wing and fuselage,  and the starboard wing to complete.

I should manage to get it into the gallery by the end of next weekend

 

More soon(ish)

Doesn't look much different but they've been stuck on the other side of the props too

 

Also, the port side fuselage has been decorated fully as well

Now I need to complete the wings

 

More soon(ish)

one wing completed, one to go

Still need the MicroSol to bed them all down

 

I'm trying to get 30 minutes or so in the evenings to work on the decals, which can be tricky

At least at that time it's not too darned hot and the decal solutions don't dry on contact

 

More soon(ish0

Hmm, seem to have forgotten to take photos again

Anyway, I finished almost all of the deacals, gave Ermintrude a flat coat and then started putting all of the bits together

And finally removed the masks

There's a few more stencils to go on the windows

Dunno what I'm going to do when it's finished

The Tea Tray of Death TM ain't big enough

 

More soon(ish)

Stuck on the last of the decals (apart from one which crumpled when I tried to lay it down)

So we're done

I'll post some pics in the gallery soon(ish)

 

Apart from the stencils (but they're needed otherwise you'd be looking at a big grey plane with some roundels), I really enjoyed this build

The kit mostly went together without problems (except those of my own making)

It's not one I would have normally considered buying, but the price was too good to pass up

 

Thanks to @Scargsy and @Col. for the GB, and as always @Enzo the Magnificent for keeping it all running smoothly

Also thanks to everyone else for comments, likes or just for looking
