    1:48 JU-87B-2 Stuka

    Post  Guest on Sat Oct 31, 2009 5:41 am

    Just started a new model. This is going to be an OOB build I have worked on the cockpit some. It still needs a wash and weathering, but I hope to have in complete by the end of the weekend.

    I was able to get more done on the Stuka the last couple days. Progress has been slow as I am moving into my new house right now and still don't have everything set up (still have to find my aircompressor and airgun Suspect )

    But this is what I have been able to get together....











    I plan to add poor-man's seat belts to the kit (aka masking tape - painted of course) but other than that this will be a OOB build.

    I have a little pudding to do on the seam top and bottom of the aircraft.

    Next major step is the nose cowling, which comes in 3 pieces for some daft reason... scratch

    great intro model.
    as for using poor mans stuff as you put it, sometimes home made items are equal to if not better than highly publicised glitter packed commercial items.
    keep them rolling please

    Alex is so right here and in many instances, the stuff you buy is not at all accurate.
