Doing work on the T2 tanker in 1/350 scale.

The Gullwing near completion with the painting of the 9 remaining rocker arm blisters. Hopefully will be completed by next weekend.

A 1/72 Sabre is primed and requires a few hours of attention before applying the paint. As I have made several before there is no need for build photos so I will post pictures after I am finished with the decals which will be JSDF colours.

 Greetings All,

 Yak 1 - Only progress on this is the oil cooler flap which I made from plastic top of take away coffee. I've had to repair
            a wing tip as a result of a drop.

 Macchi M-5  I've split the fuselage . Cut out a cockpit using a gouge and rotary tool. Simulated framing. Made a seat.
                     Joined the upper wing and have completed ribs using stretched doped cotton. Pictures to follow

  Brandenburg W29   - Progressing

 Cheers

  Gordon

Hello,

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Midway Battle this June,  I started a Douglas SBD Dauntless.  Dauntless dive bombers were responsible for sinking the 4 Japanese carriers lost at Midway which consequently turned the tide of the naval war in the Pacific. 

Made a bit of progress on the fuselage.  Already discovering mistakes in the 1940s era ID model plans,  so next step is to measure up more detailed plans...

John
