Thanks Jessie. I was happy to have an excuse to build the Welsh DC-7. In fact I have acquired another one.

Okay everyone, I've gone through the campaign gallery and handed out ribbons to everyone who has a model there. If I've missed you, give me a nudge...

My finished project, Not the best paint job. The silver was still not 100% dry for some reason even after two days.

I had to leave in the middle of August I'm afraid. Just had too much on. I managed to get all the parts cut out and ready to be assembled and painted.... And then life got in the way.

I think Daniel C is working to a last minute finish

but what about it, Stephan Wildig, Jeff L and BobR? Some projects far advanced, all hard work behind, any chance of making it?

Daniel, the form is appearing, that is a crazy looking airplane! Imagine what the pilot must think as he steps in to the cockpit!

Jonathan,

Very nice build. Very very small.....
I am also glad to see someone else refuses to go to smart phones an stays will the old reliable Samsung flip

Richard,
Nicely done!
I am not thinking I will build my R2C-1 after this all. Maybe some distant build campaign when I forgot this one.

Richard,
Great R3C-2! You make me want to build my LF Models kit of the R2C-1. Being extremely small, even for 1/72, at least there is no rigging [/quote]

Thanks Jeff.
I thought about doing the rigging but layed down until the thought went away

Jonathan,
Nice little build. Anigrand kits take work, but you can add some rare aircraft to your collection.

C'est la vie, Peter. See you around the place!

My resin kit project is nearing completion. This is an Anigrand bonus kit that comes with the C-17. It is a Cessna Citation with markings for a Marine Corps UC-35B, like this one


the fuselage is a solid casting. it will be a tail sitter without some intervention, so I drilled a hole as big as I could in the meatiest part of the front end and fill the cavity with lead.

Then filed it is smooth as I could

The CG is well forward now!

all built and painted



getting ready to apply decals.
