Minor Snag

Not a whole lot happened at the workbench today. I discovered that I was out of the dark green needed for the B-57 so I decided to just work on a few little aspects instead of heading out to the airbrush. When I get the color that I need then I’ll stroll out there and finish up. 

It was a relaxed approach today with the F-2, B-25, and Cougar getting some bench time. I started off with the B-25’s decal application. There were very few to apply so it was a pretty quick session. I was able to grab a set from Starfighter Decals representing Jimmy Doolitle’s aircraft. Great decals and very nice to work with. 

 The Cougar and F-2 were all just touch up and minor paint work. The Cougar needed it’s wingtips and leading edges painted while the F-2 just needed it’s nose painted. The F-2 still needs it’s final color. The Cougar will get it’s decals applied tomorrow and hopefully get completed by the weekend.

  2. I’m looking forward to the B25 being completed. I actually saw one (a real one) a week ago hung from the ceiling in the International War Museum at Duxford. It looked tiny when suspended above a B52! Highlight of the day though was witnessing an air display by a Mustang. The sound of that engine while performing dummy strafing runs and dives was incredible.
