Some more older stuff

I was photographing some of my old stuff for a friend of mine so I thought I'd post it here too. The first is the Tamiya 1/48 Skyraider in the markings of 'Bubbles n Bust' of the 602nd SOS, USAF Nakhon Phanom 1970;

 Also I made this one MANY years ago and it was a conversion of the Airfix 1/72 Canberra B6 to a B2/6 of the Royal Aircraft Establishment painted in the 'Raspberry Ripple' scheme. The nose was cast in resin from a mould I made myself as nobody made a commercial set for it;

Tristar Storch update + Hasegawa P-51D pulled from the Shelf of Doom

So this is where I am with the Storch, just the wings to fit then I can give it a wash and paint;
It's essential that you coat the canopy with Johnsons Klear or similar as you will have to use cyano to fix the canopy and the undercarriage struts, The cyano will fog clear plastic otherwise.
Also while I'm on a roll I've restarted this Hasegawa P-51D;

The cockpit was painted and fitted last night and the fuselage glued together (hence the masking tape everywhere). To be honest the fit of the wings is superb and no filler will be required, which is surprising cos I cut out the flaps :o)
I'm building it as an early one so I've had to hack the fillet from the front of the fin and there will definitely be some filler required.

Hobbyboss RSOV finally done

Here it is, basically a sound kit in need of some tweaking;

I kept the weathering to a minimum, just giving it a dusty look like it is in the Middle East 'somewhere' :o)
