    Define patience:

    The ability to put a single large flat decal on a round 3d object with tappered ends....

    in the next set of pictures that is ONE decal that wraps all the way around the fuel tank....

    I have also been working on a B-25 and was having a very hard time getting this aircraft to sit on its wheels. The model is very tail heavy. To now I have filled the front wheel well, filled the area behind the instrument panel and it still doesn't sit right. The problem here is that aircraft has a glass nose so space to put weights is at a premium. Now I had had to cut out the front of the engine nacelles to put in more weights. I have the first layer down waiting for the glue to dry to put on the second layer...







    I am now running out of weights as well! Shocked

    Here is the bare minimum for the weights to make this kit sit right.





    This is after filling the nose wheel bay and behind the instrument panel

    I glued the flattened wheel on the legs and set the plane down and it sits right! (only barely) (if I get to much dust on the tail it will tail sit again.)





    now to close up the engine nacelles.

    Now ready for paint....









    Like I said in the first post for this model, this is a speed build. I hope to have it done by the end of next week.

    I am also doing this one as a quick build....(getting tired of working on the same models all the time.



    It is not a great kit, but average. There are some problems with sink holes for the injection molds and the sprue attachment point lap over onto gluing surfaces on some pieces...



    but it was a quick build







    Right now the intake and vertical tail are just sitting on the kit. I have some other things to do first before attaching them.

    Between the above 2 models and 3 other 1/72 kits I have sitting on my work shelf I have enough models to make going out to the paint booth worth while.

    That's some really good work on the 25, definitely not easy to hide all of the weight, hopefully it doesn't overstress the landing gear. You can really fly through these models, amazing! The 107 was a pretty cool plane.

    Your not afraid that the lead in the sinks will bleed through the plastic in a few years?

    Only catch I have come across is the cockpit is a shade to narrow for the fuselage, but super glue can pull the two of them together. Nothing major so far.

    i am in the process of rescribing all the raised panel lines, a nice boring, tedious part of this build. Afraid it will take a while. (lot of d*mn small panel lines on the aircraft)
