I am getting very close to finishing this model. I made the exhaust stacks out of .060 aluminum tube

Following this with great interest!

Nice build of an interesting aircraft. The 1930s must have been an exciting time for aviation designers and engineers; when the B-10 was released, it was hailed as a technological marvel...only to be considered obsolete a few years later.

I have finally got this thing painted. In the past I have used Model Master Enamels and Tamiya acrylics. I used AKA interactive on this model, primarily because they had a set of USAAF colors that contained # 42 medium green. I have mixed feelings about it. I first sprayed the model with Tamiya primer.
The AKA paint goes on very smooth and thin, but scratches easily. If you sand it, the paint does not featheredge but seems more like a skin and rolls up. I think I will try Hataka next time. Next clear coat and decals!

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!

I was able to get that decal set from Hannants.

I got the fuselage together and applied the base coat of medium green. I just stuck the wings on to "see what it would look like ". The undersides of the wings are aluminum but they are still masked off

How is this for modeler's logic? "My friend gave me this Williams B-10, so, since I didn't have to pay for it, I can buy the Azur kit!" Convoluted logic I know. I could have abandoned the Williams kit, but I had a lot of work into it. I used the Azur kit to make resin copies of the cowlings. Because of the kits construction, this was a little more difficult than models with one piece cowls.

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.

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.

I see reference to Scalemates group builds, but I don't see a link to them or how to join?
