Well I found last year's entry that I failed to complete so that will be my initial entry for KUTA II. See if I can find a picture....

Ah here is one!

That should be nice - I love float planes, and Lindberg aren't bad kits for their age!

There is a 3rd scheme on the sheet, medium blue uppers with light grey lowers and some yellow training stripes on the fuslegae and wings.

I will try and post an updated picture shortly.

Been tearing the hair out with this one, filling, sanding, priming, filling, sanding, priming... you get the picture.

Here is a picture of how it is at the moment, It might be time to big the the bullet and just throw some paint on it...

I am now officially over sanding and filling! :D I have now got a descent coat of blue on it and await its drying so I can get the grey and yellow trainer bands on it.

Some more paint applied. I took the masking off the canopy and found some gunk on the inside near the instrument panel shroud. So I popped it off to give it a clean and will have to reapply it later.

Ahh the trials and tribulations!

I had a good session on the weekend masking and painting the training stripes then when it came to decalling I butchered one of the wing roundels trying to move it after adding setting solution. I am using the Red Roo Kingfishers Pt2 sheet (which are great to work with BTW!)

The clear parts are yet to be refitted after popping them off to remove some sanding residue that got inside (DOH!)

Would any one have a spare wing roundel for A48-4 from the Red Roo sheet by any chance?

Thanks all! Also home with this one.

That is looking nice. But whats happening with the front canopy?

Ollie, I had to pop the clear parts off to clean them up. I had only rested them back in place for the pictures and did not notice I had bumped the windscreen out of place. They will be resecured next.
