I also think you made a good job in restoring the windows ?
22. May, 08:30
Lochsa_River
Thank you for those kind comments....the windows?.... only OK but it was time to move on to decals.

Love the footprints!

I once voted for Bob Dole to be President of the United States....because we've never had a president named "Bob".

That made the choice in decal scheme easy!

Go Bob!!

Thanks...this one will bring out the smiles for sometime.

This is the first step in the Vega series project...

bobsmodelcollection.xara.hosting/vega%20series.htm

The interiors and the side windows, which don't add much, won't be used, to move things along...this is mostly a painting and decaling project.

For some reason, the website was acting weird so its now located at:

http://bobsawesomemodels.xara.hosting/index.htm

What I don't know about web hosting would fill volumes, but I may need to get a different hosting service. This has happened before.

Please let me know if you have trouble with the new site.

Thanks, Bob

After months ....distracted by golf, photography, wildfire smoke, heat waves and playoff baseball....back on the bench. It will be modeling until March....not much golf, wildfires or heat waves to deal with!

The World Series is still waiting to eat up time, though.....

A good kit, with excellent photoetch interior pieces that won't get used because I'm not that good...but, a better modeler could make a very nice piece out of this.

In any case, the floatplane collection grows....

It is not obsession...it is a hobby.

So that explains deciding a perfectly decent wing blue section was too dark and not the right color, even though it took three tries to get there....so, a decision has been made to make a custom color for the wing....

...5 parts Mission Models MMP-001 White and just 2 parts MMP-048 Blue make a pretty good match for the FS25184 color that no one seems to make.

....all the lessons learned from finally getting a good mask, etc. will be used on this, now fourth, attempt to paint the wing section...repeat after me...it is just a hobby....

The State of play of the Winnie Mae....a modeling rhyme....

....there are about twelve different ways this dude isn't up to snuff..

..the cockpit...the paint that "matched" when i tested it but not when i sprayed it!...by golly, i am going to get decent looking wheel spats...but i have to learn to sand curves....

...folks....there are more "lessons" in this little model....

...it is time to do the best i can and move on...but, i AM going to fill in those spats and try to make better versions....honestly, this has been a fun project...but it is time to move on...

Did you ever buy a kit just to see what it looked like?

I'm not going to compete with the world of Spitfire builders out there!

But checking out this Airfix kit, tooled and molded in 2020, was a chance to see the modeling art at its state of the art.
28. December 2020, 02:00

It's probably Airfix's nicest 1/72 kit to date. Panel lines are well defined, good surface detail and a great cockpit out of the box.

Yes LR, pardon the pun, but... You're screwed!😉
You'll have to motorize yours, even if it's only to show the inner workings of the steam engine's transmission system.
Have you seen that beam going up and down? Fascinating! 👍 🙂

Two versions were completed..one Luftwaffe...the other Spanish Civil War

These are interesting kits but its hard to recommend them...too flimsy....I also noticed the wheels of the Civil War version need attention
