Even with my struggles to make my way out to the airbrush, I’m always in a progressive frame of mind. I hope I don’t bury myself with halfway finished kits awaiting paint but the wings are officially on the Wildcat and Harrier so I will be foregoing with the next two builds.
The only criteria involved with my decision was to build post WWII. There are quite a few piston driven aircraft filling up my shelf so I need to balance out a bit. My first choice has been a finalist too many times to count here at my workbench. I do this quite often and eventually they make there way in. So first up is Hasegawa’s 1/72 F9F-8 Cougar. The kit looks great so far. I can’t see any issues with flashing or problem areas so I’m excited to get started.
The second kit will be one of my newest editions to my stash in Revell’s 1/72 Canberra PR.9. The original plan was to get this kit built sometime this year, I just didn’t expect it to be so soon. I was leaning towards the American B-57G Canberra but I have already built a “B” version so I thought it would be prudent to go with the British variant. I think I made the right choice. The only problem I see is the starkness to the kit. I’m going to have to figure out a way to add some details to the exterior. I’ll be looking for a boarding ladder for sure and maybe some new landing gear. Other than that, this should be a fun kit.
