Air Racer Cook-up
« on: October 14, 2008, 02:44:14 PM »
Jimmy D and me have been talking through messages and he is going to make the Folkerts SK3 so I wanted to introduce him to the cook-up section.  Jimmy, here is the link to the racers presented so far.

Hey Lou,

I've been thinking of that poor ol' beast just yesterday...  It's been sitting for over a year with only needing masking and hitting the blue over the silver that I've already sprayed...


Take care guys,

ps
lots of cool stuff hapenning on the boards lately.  Great work everybody :-)

A cook-up has been nominated and approved (It only takes two builders) and they never end. Let the chips fly Gents  ;D

Hello all,

I've been lurking and posting plans for a while and now I guess it's time to join in a cookup. My project will be the Hansen Baby Bullet # 2, NR282W, which raced in 1932-1933. I am building a full-scale replica of this airplane so a little one will help me visualize the color scheme and other details.

here is Pete's contribution to the Racer Gook Up. His supermarine S-6B is coming along nicely.

Some rework of the engine housings was in order.
Pete's Supermarine craft can be seen in greater detail at http://smm.solidmodelmemories.net/Gallery/thumbnails.php?album=36
Please note that the pictures uploaded in the album are not in the proper sequence.
Good luck Pete.

K Mars has presented us with a number of very interesting Air Racer models.

1/50 Scale Caudron C860

1/50 Scale Brown B-2 "Miss Los Angeles"

Kenji, I suggest you ask for a project board to better explain your collection of racers. They are marvelous .

Hello Lou,

I feel it to honored to invite.
I'm not good at English.

I post another photograph of my "Howard DGA-3".
This model 1/50 Scale. 1/50 Scale is general in Japan. This reason is that the metric system is used.

A golden decal is made from the thermoelectronic printer.

The propeller is a wooden basis.

Kenji, we care about the modeller and his/her models and don't worry about the odd word that may be out of place or misspelled. If we don't understand something we will ask for clarifications. I enjoy seeing your models and hearing from another part of the world.

Lou
PS Excellent finishes on your models.
