Revell Pt-17 Stearman
Thought I'd do something a bit different this time. I need something small to fill a space. It is small!, Looks to have good detail, so it should look pretty cool. The rigging will be a pain, but I've done one so far, that may help.
It's a neat old plane!!
I will follow - have this on my wishlist. Nice start!
It's a pretty decent "little" kit, everything fits together well. A simple easy one for a change. I did paint it last night but my yellow is way off. Gotta go to HL tomorrow and get some good MM yellow! The "fun" part will be the rigging. I pre-drilled holes for the wires, can't just glue them to nothing!
I also will peek over your shoulder. Good luck with the rigging!
I have this kit in waiting mode. Will stay tuned. Gary
Well, the rigging will be a bit fiddly but hopefully not too bad. Pre-drilling holes should help a lot. I did that on the Goose and it made a big difference. I have some .020 steel wire, that should work fine. I have some .016 brass also, but it just bends too easy.
The rest of the kit was very easy, and fun to put together. My yellow didn't quite turn out as I wanted, but it's gonna have to do! I'm putting the decals on it today! It should be done soon. I'm thinking to get another one for my grandson. Without rigging it would be an easy & fun kit for him to build. Cheers guys.
En voilà un qui me semble bien parti. Joli travail.
bonjour Jean Pierre!
Well... as I was getting things ready to put the decals on I decided it really needed another coat of paint, it just wasn't covered well enough> so I mixed up another little batch of Canary Yellow and hit it again. Looks MUCH better. Decals tomorrow!
Really nice!! Glad to see the engine compartment is removable. Gary S. XXXXV XX XX
