Ben M Ever since I watched a show about this on YouTube my wife has enjoyed shouting "go, go little sea dart!" And this showed up under the Christmas tree, thank you!

Ben M The kit looks kind of scary. Short run, lots of flash. I will build a couple others first to get my skills up to it. But I'm looking forward to it. "Go, go little sea dart!"

Ben M Where is that, Nathan?

Nathan Dempsey The Florida Air Museum (formerly Sun-N-Fun Air Museum) in Lakeland, FL USA. I think the only other surviving one is in California, but I'm fairly certain that the one by me is the YF2Y-1.

Choppa Nutta Cool subject, I've just been watching season one of this show and I have to say it hasn't aged too badly at all :)
Although some episodes are a bit silly and it doesn't seem to matter how many people die on Alpha One there is always over 300 people there haha :D
still though, all good fun.
I shall enjoy following this :)
30. September 2018 at 11:26:09
Ben M Yes the show is pretty funny. My wife and I watched a couple episodes and laughed the whole time. I loved it when I was a kid, and I had built this model and the one of the hawk when I was a kid. I also built some alien with a car that I think was from the show.
30. September 2018 at 17:02:21
Ben M The landing gear continues to challenge me but I have one leg done maybe. Kind of wish now I would have made them spring loaded, wouldn't have been much harder. The foot pad is a ground down plastic part from the kit, the rest is brass parts and photoetch.
1. November 2018 at 17:30:24
Ben M Not sure how I will mask this for painting. The bottom of the pod should remain black, the rest silver. Liquid masking compound maybe?
1. November 2018 at 17:32:13
Torsten Wendt I think liquid is the best choice
1. November 2018 at 18:11:49
Ben M Unfortunately the liquid mask pulled the Vallejo black primer off the brass ... I'm repainting everything with a brush.
18. November 2018 at 00:06:55
Ben M Now the tamiya tape pulled the paint off the photo etch. There sure is a learning curve here... Any advice on how to keep this from happening? I used tamiya grey primer as my base coat.

Ben M All done!

Ben M I spent 3 hours masking and burnishing down the tape with a toothpick, and the results are not so great. I even gave it a shot of white paint before I did the black to try to seal up any leaks. The white vinyl tamiya tape didn't work well. The masking tape worked somewhat better but not great.
3. December 2018 at 03:23:44
Torsten Wendt Sounds a little bit frustrating :(
3. December 2018 at 06:10:09
Ben M Future floor wax didn't go so well. Think maybe i used the wrong needle with the nozzle on my airbrush. The future beaded up and I had to flood it to get it to cover. Hopefully it will look better after I dullcote it,

Now decal decal decal decal.
19. December 2018 at 04:12:57
Ben M All done! I'm pretty happy with the result, despite a few issues. This was the first time I'd used photoetch and the first time I'd used future. I also hadn't done decals since I was a kid. Very fun and relaxing, also made me watch the silly show I loved as a kid.

Ben M I have a rebox of this kit that isn't in the database. I need to learn how to add it to the database. Also I want to learn how to do rigging and how to do a wash to enhance panel lines as part of this project.

Ben M Dear mates, if anyone has a small 1:48 or large 1:72 aircooled engine cylinder in the spare parts bin, I could use it to go inside the cowling. Also I would swap one of the 1:48 pilot figures for a different one so I don't have two identical twins in my trainer.
3. December 2018 at 14:42:57
Ben M Nope... I cut open the nose to open up the air intakes so now I need something to put in there. I bet I can scratch something out of my junk drawer, maybe alternating sized washers on a small bolt.
