Hi Everyone!

Almost a 12th of the way through and we’ve got great start going. Gary, your B-2 looks good. Mike I like the Cobra, a good thing in small package. Regarding Sci-fi Queens, why not? The spirit of this build is to get them done regardless of here and now or a galaxy far far away.

Mark, I always wanted to do the Monogram Bearcat, just never did. Yours looks pretty good so far, look forward to seeing it done.

Here’s my first entrant, Academy’s 1/48 F-16C. In the box it looks almost identical to Hasegawa’s, but that is where it ends. For me, Academy kits seem to look great but fit is spotty, and in my box were some beautiful, but worthless decals. I’m thinking templates for the paint job, though Thunderbirds are gonna make it a real hard row to hoe.



More to follow and a good showing so far!

I'll throw my hat in the ring. It will probably DML's 1/200 B-2/F-117 kit.

Initial pictires:


As you can see, the landing gear and wells have been painted white, although they could probably use another coat. Black has been painted in the cockpit and on the radar panels underneath. I was experimenting with masking. It's been like this since the last time I was in a Hangar Queen campaign.

Ok, a pretty decent day at the bench.
Re-re-restarting on Hasegawa's ancient AH-1S. It has been a shelf queen for over 15 yrs.


where I started today


And where I managed to get by the end of the afternoon


Who knows, I might even finish this one THIS month!

Actually, now that I think about it, we are on the 8th Queen now.

Is this not discrimination

Next time we MUST have another name such as Hangar King, or Hangar Princess, or Hangar Duke

Well John, It best, I've only flown over that area on the Singapore to Penang route. Great modelers in that part of the world. They take it real seriously.

So after posting, I realized that I do have a couple here! I brought the F-15 in my luggage (from Terrible Teens), and the love to hate F-16 by Academy. So which to finish??

Hey Mark,

I'm in Melaka or Malacca (British spelling), on the West Peninsula, west coast, about 3.5 hour drive North of Singapore, and 1.5 South of KL. Located on the Straights of Melaka! A very historical place, and home to the sweetest and sexiest teacher in the world!

Good luck John. Hope you get 1 or 2 done.

Outside of Penang, my Malaysian geography stinks. So what part are you in?

Happy New Year Everyone!

I'd like to welcome any and all to the Hangar Queen 8 campaign. A special thanks to Michael for letting me lead this one!

It's been said that when one has skin in game they do better. Having recently moved to Malaysia from the US, and giving away all my completed builds, I found that I still had 7 works in progress. So my intention is to complete them, as the wife frowns on unfinished work, and space is at a premium!

So, in no particular order they are all 1/48 (my scale of choice):

-Hasegawa Ki-61
-Monogram F-16 prototype
-Academy F-16A Thunderbird
-Monogram P-47D-25-RE
-Tamiya P-47D-26-RA
-Fujimi F-15A
-Mauve P-40N

It'll be some time before I begin, as they are currently on a ship somewhere in the Pacific, but hopefully some progress will happen soon.

Let's have fun!

John

I am in with a tamiya 1/48 douglas skyray.

I started it, I loved it, I got distracted and now it sits on some shelve....

But not for long anymore

It's official, I'm in. Think I only have 22 candidates this year, compared with 23 last year. First thought is Monogram's F8F-1 Bearcat. This one has been close to finished for a couple of years. It's been on the shelf of doom for quite a while because I thought I'd lost the windscreen.


There's a little more more to do than I thought, some sanding on the seams top and bottom, clean up the bombs, paint the missiles,mask and install the canopy. Then paint GSB.


I also ended up with a decal set. Score!

Might be a few weeks before I get to work on it.

annnnddddd I'm in!

Not sure what with, but it's not like I dont have a bunch to choose from.

Stuka tankbuster, DML's 1/35 Ah6 wip for more than 15yrs, Su33, Su-27.. or all those Hinds and yummy Linden Hill decals, or the SF3D Fledermaus, a 20 yr shelf queen.

Michael, with no Model Geek motion for a pure sci fi hangar queen campaign, are Sci fi fliers still acceptable?
