Completed 1/350 the River Class Frigate and the 1/72 Pe-2 projects last month.

Currently on the bench:

1/48 Canadair Argus getting a coat of Future wax and awaiting CanMilair decals. I ordered them last week. Attempts to make my own proved fruitless.

1/48 Cessna 310 received a coat of talcum powder/Future was mix wood sealer and sanding with 320 grit paper has begun.

1/72 Liberator Mk V has returned to the production line with some serious sanding taking place. I am using sanding pads of various grit to round off the fuselage and shape the wing. Nacelle blanks have been cut out and the tail feathers were cut and roughly shaped last spring prior to the move.

1/144 Contemplating another UN transport aircraft. AN 26 strikes my fancy but time will tell.

 Progress so far......

  Lagg -3 -  Exhausts, HMG and cannon added. Attempted to do the decals but they were brittle
                 ( Harrumph!). Some time spent scanning and printing. Results seem good. Yet to be
                  applied.

  Yak -1. - General cleaning up.
   
   XBY -1 - Finishing off. Should be done in the next couple of weeks.
   
  Pictures to  follow.
 Cheers
