Urban Gardini added the Tamiya Douglas F4D-1 Skyray in 1:72 to his wishlist
5. March 2012 at 16:24:52 Share
Wilfried Bogaerts Good choice, I think this is one of the best kits in 72nd scale ever made so far...
5. March 2012 at 18:54:06
Urban Gardini Thanks mate! It's a bird that manage to be ugly n' beautiful at the same time. I like it but I must admit that I don't know anything about the Skyray at all, I just wan't to build it.
5. March 2012 at 19:09:32
Bill Gilman This is a great little kit - I built it last year. I had a tough time with the decals, but that always happens with me and Tamiya kits. I don't know why. The big blue decals for the tail and spine were particularly tricky - they wanted to stick immediately wherever they landed. But it came out OK.
5. March 2012 at 20:23:02
Urban Gardini Well, Tamiya's decals isn't the nicest out there to work with. Plus the fact that I don't like decals... Check out the build that I added earlier tonight in the project updates...
5. March 2012 at 20:35:30
Bill Gilman Which one, Urban?
6. March 2012 at 04:08:42
Lionel Marco I made this kit too, and have real fun qith it!
6. March 2012 at 09:27:26
Urban Gardini It's not my build! It's just a great build that I did find on the net but it's the build that made me wanna build one of my own.
6. March 2012 at 09:31:08
Dave Flitton You are right, this is an inspirational build!!!!
6. March 2012 at 14:22:20
Bill Gilman Thanks, Urban, the gentleman did a nice job on the build of the little batplane.
It amazes me how back in the 1950s, the major aerospace companies could design a new plane, test it, build the production units, put them in service, and have them go out of service due to being made obsolete by newer designs in the same length of time (a few years) that it takes the modern companies to produce an artist's impression of what the design will look like. I guess that's progress. Of course, a lot of test pilots paid with their lives as nobody knew how these things would fly until they rolled down the runway. Today's computer simulations have certainly helped in that regard, and in fairness the complexity of the modern designs is far beyond those of the 1950s. But it is a staggering difference.

By the way, for those who don't understand why the linked article was called "ford at sea" it's because the Skyray's designation was F4D, or Ford.
6. March 2012 at 20:50:03
Wilfried Bogaerts aaaah I knew the F4D's nick was Ford, but now I understand why! Thx Bill!
