Sheesh.  Not much progress.  Between Boy Scouts, errands, and reenactments my time has been somewhat constrained.

 

Hope to make more progress this weekend!

I think I'll finish in time...

Always nice to see a Spad, Tim. So this is the two-cannon version?

No, it still has 4 x 20mm in it--so say the instructions.  It's from VMA-121, c. 1952. (AD-3)

Outer wing sections attached--not to thrilled with the fit.  Seems like they do better when folded.

 

Just some annoying narrowing of the seam gaps to attend to, but hey--it looks like an airplane now!

Working on the weapons as well, which will consist of a couple of 500 lb bombs and a bunch of 5" rockets.

 

In the home stretch...was stressing a bit about all the PE that goes behind the pilot's headrest---then I noticed most operational SPADs appear to have a canvas cover over all that stuff.  

 

Ha--problem solved!

 

Stay tuned,

Hey Tim, really looking great. I'm going to build mine with the same -121 markings, as Dad was in that squadron with the AD's in 1952. Gotta a couple questions though. Couldn't really tell in the pictures, but what color did you paint the interior? If it's green, what brand/shade did you use? thanks for any help.

Chuck

Hi Chuck--

 

Per the instructions that came with the Aires cockpit set and based on my own understanding, the interior is grey.  I think I used Model Master Neutral Grey 1725 with a bit of black added to darken things up just a tad.  You can see the grey I was aiming at here:

The landing gear bays are Interior Green with a bit of yellow added to make it more Zinc Chromate-y.   I did weathering with a dark wash with black paint/thinner and drybrush silver highlights for wear and tear.

 

Hope this helps--I'll be taking more pix shortly.

 

Cheers,

 

Tim W.
