This one is on hold....I just couldn't get the decals on the cowling to go correctly and trashed both sets. New decals are on the way.

This whole Vega project will now be put aside while new decals arrive (more and different version of the Vega have been discovered) and someone is making masks for these models but they aren't shipping yet....bottom line...the Vega project is on hold.

Here is a big vote for some innovative resin maker to make a nice resin engine cowling for this MPM set.
I would buy it! Count on 10 orders the day its announced. These are cool planes.

Finally, given the troubles with the decals, a decision has been made that filling in the windows and doing this Wiley Post version a bit better is worth it.

The engine cowling will be dealt with one way or the other and won't be perfect (I may just paint the front end dark blue and butt up the other cowling decals and call it good), but some Wiley Post version needs to be part of any Vega collection.

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

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.

Cheers Gordon, welcome on board.

Well, this is kind of a side project. I have started it right away, but I am only doing a few bits n pieces then and now when I have to leave other projects alone. Today I took a few pictures so I have them for my build report on my website. Thus I started this one here.

So far I have built in the main structures and started with the cockpit. It was airbrushed aircraft grey yesterday. I have also built the wing and I am not sure if I should add some structure on it as it is just a huge plain wing .. otoh I do not have a rivet plan for the plane. The engine does not look bad oob.

Every part has to be carefully cut out of the frames. I am using my trusted Hypercut saw pro-ss 0.1mm. Most of the parts are super fragile, so take your weapon of choice but be careful!
