Well, not much progress was made on the model front yesterday. The only work done was applying the awful decals on the U-2. Their age completely showed. I ended up supplementing from my spares wherever possible. Regardless, the U-2 is about finished. It’ll get a coat of clear matte today and receive minimal weathering.
By no means was yesterday a failure though. My visit to the Museum of Science and Industry was a great family outing that turned into a refreshing source of inspiration.
The famous U-505 on display is one of six captured German U-boats during WWII. Among the many displays are a few nautical dioramas that peaked my interest. I have a handful of ships in my stash but ever since I read a book about the USS Indianapolis, it’s been in my head to build one. I’ll be on the lookout for a kit now.
One more exhibit caught my eye in the Ju-87 Stuka that hangs from the ceiling. It’s in a North African desert scheme and I think it’s about time for another Stuka build. I already dug a kit out to see what I need for the build. It’s safe to say that it’s added to the next build set. I feel a WWII phase coming on.
