oops, we're off and running. I'll have to get out my camera a shoot a couple of hanger queens, then figure out which one in can finish by the end of the year.

Wow John, that Boomerang looks to big and too good (and too expensive!) a kit to be left unfinished.

The soaking produced a surprising but interesting side-effect: The paint got somewhat blotchy which I don't mind so much, because it gives a used, but not too weathered look. What do you think?
Go on and have fun!

looks exactly like the pattern produced by the steam jenny applied carelessly.

A young inexperienced sailor can do alot of damage very quickly with one of these!!

Hi, here are some new pictures. I have two bombs for the wing stations waiting and of course, the replacement decals.
I overpainted the others, because they declined to get off after a thorough soaking in the kitchen sink.

Im going to use this campaign as motivation to have another go at finishing my Boomerang. I bought this a long time ago and have not touched it for about three years. So here goes!

Can this project be qualified as a proper Hangar Queen or is it too near completion to be considered so?



Nothing is too complete; If you have a model which only needs one decal put on to finish it, it's still a hangar queen.

Hi,

I also had a lot of fun building 2 long time stranded kits during HQIII.

Amongst a few still stranded projects, got a Eduard's bf 110 C initially built during the Zerstorer campaign but not finished in time and basically gathering dust inside a box since then.

here are a few photos taken back then










as you can see a few mishaps happened here and there

back then I painted it based solely on the decal sheet's profile, but a few days ago finally caught up with a photo of the real thing (below) and I guess some work is needed to bring the camouflage more similar to the actual plane.

.

Can this project be qualified as a proper Hangar Queen or is it too near completion to be considered so?

Thanks
Pedro

Another Hangar Queen Campaign, sign me up!

Having moved 3 times in the last 5 years, there are plenty of shelf of shame 'hangar queens'.. oh who am I kidding...
I had TONS of these albatrosses (albatrosi??) circling even back then!

Inital thoughts are the Revell B-1 with the Two Bobs decals "Live Free of Die". A friend at work gave me the kit, her brother is a ground crew/maintenance guy and it got started and sat and sat and sat..

As it stands now. The Tamiya German Grey was leftover in the airbrush from an armor porject and was intended as just a basecoat over the hellacious putty work it took to even get this far. I'll go over with lightened coats of the 'right' paint later.




It's the older boxing with all the cruise missiles hnaging all under it and the bomb bay full of them too.
It wont be 'accurate' but I do like the look with all those ALCM hanging underneath. Plus I wont have to scratch a 'real' bombbay this way.

Mike
PS I fully reserve the right to pull some other all but forgotten kit off the shelf and finish it, if it strikes my fancy. So dont get your hopes up on this one.

Hi everybody,

after taking part in Hangar Queen III which was great fun and satisfying, I'm in this time, too.
Had to stop my building of a A-1 H Skyraider of the South Vietnam Air Force because of total decal desaster. Now I'm waiting for the replacement. In the meantime I will finish the "SPAD" for this campaign.
Some pictures of the progress a few days ago:
