I have printed new decals which are waiting for a few coats of clear acrylic to seal them off.
Everything is under control except for getting a little more suggestions about the next build.
The P-47 is way up front, and is not what I had expected to build next.
Always expect the unexpected…
Like old decals refusing to conform.
Even with Solvaset solution.
The solution is to scrape the decals off.
And prepare for a new coat of paint.
And printing home made decals.
You tell me.
Once the results are tabulated there is no turning back…
The beast assembly is almost completed except for the rockets.
The decals and the weathering will come later.
That’s about it!
Repositioning the tail fins.
Having my two granddaughters on a three-day babysitting session prevented me to make significant progress.
But who’s complaining?
I had to read the instructions twice and dry fit the struts three times before deciding to go ahead with gluing.
I remember building my first Typhoon in 1969 or 1970. I found out the date by looking at Scalemates.com which had this box top on their Website.
Looking at the 1969 box top brought back fond memories of the late 60s, but I don’t have any recollections having had such a hard time with the instructions.
Gluing the clear parts is what I dread the most.
Nothing much to report on except the assembly of the fuselage with the wings.
The camouflage is done using acrylic paint.
I am still using what my son bought 10 years ago, or is it 15 years ago, for his hockey figurines he wanted to touch up a little.
What is left is adding the landing gear, the rockets, the canopy, and the propeller.
I won’t be working that much on the project today since it’s my grandddaugher’s birthday party.
She’s turning two.
