It’s Vacation Time Again

Here I am in Ludington, MI again with the YF-17 so close to being completed. I tried to wrap the build up before I left with lackluster results. With the dangers of bringing it along and having to transport a finished product on the way home, I wisely opted to leave it behind and bring the A-10’s along. 

Today was my first solid day of work on the four A-10 builds. The cockpits have been started as well as enough ordinance to supply some small countries. Seat belts have been put on and I will apply the instrument panel decals tonight. I am hoping to build the cockpits and get them installed tomorrow. The ordinance is pretty much complete. I will decal them tomorrow as well. Other than that, I brought the engine nacelles to sand and landing gear to detail. If I can get the small areas shored up, it will create more time to focus on the major construction when I get back. My goal is to have the fuselage halves together by the end of the week along with the landing gear and ordinance finished. Not a huge goal but it takes a backseat to the reason that I am here. Fishing has been good and I have had fun with my family so whatever gets done on the model front is perfect.

  1. your work is just super impressive, honestly. it’s inspiring to me. is this just a hobby, or do you do this professionally??

    we were chatting a little about the YF23, remember? i got so curious, i ended up watching an hour’s worth of YouTube videos just so i could see the plane and watch it fly. it was just beautiful, like an elegant but fragile paper airplane. 🙂
