Fear the Reaper

If we are talking about Skunk Models MQ-9 Reaper, then don’t fear it. If you blink, you might miss it. This has been a fantastical build. I would be generous in saying that my total time invested has exceeded two hours. This could be be built, sanded, and painted in close to a day, and that’s not a bad thing. Being a drone, the lack of a cockpit decreases build time quite a bit. I was apprehensive at first about the parts being too soft of a plastic but they turned out to be great to work with. The only filler used was on one seam of one bomb. In fact, this is the first time that the plane has been completed before the ordinance and landing gear. Aside from that, as it sits, all that is needed is the weathering. I was able to get the airbrushing completed yesterday and I spent this morning applying the decals. I would expect to be finished tonight or tomorrow.
