I've wanted to get one of these as well, the colors and such that they were painted are fantastic.

Actually, I am going to paint it in Chinese colors, which is green all over.

A friend of mine gave me an old Williams B-10. Azur just came out with a new version but ,this one is free. I have a current interest in the early air war in the Pacific. The Dutch had over 130 B-10's of various versions and used them in combat with the Japanese. I will build it in Dutch camo. I got a start on it and it has some serious flash!

Darn. I got a set from aviationmegastore but they aren't on the website anymore. It's puzzling because they are not listed as "out of stock". I've actually had bad luck with them coming apart, but I use them a lot because they have lots of the subjects I am interested in.

Let me say that this kit was free, and friend gave it to me. That being said, This kit has more flash, sink marks, and ejector pin marks of any kit I have worked on. It is a old kit, maybe it was made on Monday. It is taking a lot of sanding and filling to get it to this point. I hope I can turn it into something presentable.

This is my first attempt at duplicating parts with resin. The gray part is the original underwing bomb mount for the B-10. The tan one is the duplicate. I was really surprised how well it turned out. The Kit only comes with one bomb mount, but the Dutch bombers had one under each wing. This opens up all sorts of possibilities!

Good luck Bill. I'm watching.

What did you use to make the mold?

Skywalker, I used the Alumilite casting kit that you can get from Hobby Lobby.

These old kits have no cockpit detail, so I added some. There is little information on these gliders, and I had just a few photos to go by. Rather than a scale, nut, and bolts reproduction, I was looking for a representation of the interior. The Falcon vacuum formed canopy turned out so nice, I wanted some thing to look at!

Looks great, Bill! I did the Italeri Horsa a couple years ago with the yellow/black bottom. Did you mask the 'portholes' or use window-maker after painting?

Gordon, I used Micro Krystal Klear for the porthole windows. It was easier than trying to mask the Airfix windows for painting, and looks as least as good.

Glad it worked so well, I'll do the same

They had a Mustang II flopper for the late 70's, it ended up over here run by the Stones Team.

The very first motorsports event I ever went to featured funny cars. It was in the early seventies and I was in junior high school. I haven't been the same since!
4. February 2020, 23:46
Bill Davis
I have made some progress. I got several car magazines from eBay that had feature articles on this car. I have tried to reproduce some of the unique features of the Blue Max,like the fuel tank strap. I made it out of brass shim stock.

It looks great so far Bill, keep it up!
The research work is fascinating isn't it?
I love that aspect of modelling ;)

Thanks Munkyslut. I love doing the research on the models I am building. It's actually easier to get info on military vehicles than old race cars.
