11 years ago
with my modelling activities lately. Since I got on this 1/144th kick
I've gotten about 4 Japanese WWII fighters under construction. All are
at the decalling stage at present and eventually I'll face the fun (?)
of painting canopy frames.
Meanwhile I also have 2 Bf 109s, a Bf 110C and a Ju 88A-4 under way too.
I discovered a lack of 'certain markings' in almost all the German kits
so I'm scrounging through my decal spares boxes for tail markings of the
proper size. Fortunately, the Platz kits came with multiple options and
I've appropriated a couple from their sheet. One of my Fw 190Ds is
destined to be painted in Soviet markings so that loosens up a couple more.
The two 109s came pre-painted but lack the proper markings on the tail
also. I also have an He 177A from CafeReo/Algernon half assembled and
properly marked. I'm awaiting a replacement part which may never come,
in which situation I shall have to scratch up another landing gear leg/door.
Once the aircraft are cleared out I'm starting on one of those 1/700
ship kits I ordered from Squadron and HobbyLinc.
Various pieces of HO model railroad equipment wander through now and
then also so I'm staying busy in my retirement.
So what's everybody else doing?
