Final Build

With one week left until we have to be moved out of our home, I think I have enough time to get out one more build. Maybe two. I really thought that the Corsair, the Airacobra, and the Banshee would be the final builds.
To give myself as little of a headache as possible, I went with an easier kit. I chose Academy’s 1/72 SR-71A “History” kit. The basis for this choice is the minimal parts and a rather simple paint scheme. Bottom line is that I think a week is plenty of time to finish this kit. The tricky part will be the weathering. It’s an all flat black airplane so I will need to get creative. I have some ideas that I think will do well.
I have picked a second kit in Hasegawa’s 1/72 F11F-1 Tiger “VA-156 Iron Tigers” issue. I don’t have faith that this one will be done before the move but I am going for it anyway. Opening the box shows a quality build. I will have to saw off the nose to attach the provided, and correct, resin nose. The rest looks like a typical Hasegawa kit. I have been trying to fit this build in for a few months now and I am glad that I can finally get around to it.
