The Lukgraph Boeing F2B-1
The GB to finally put an end to my procrastination on building the Lukgraph kits in the stash, as well as a nice chunk of my between the war years collection. The 1920's and 1930's have always been my passion, as some of the most colorful aircraft in the sky and the era of transition from biplanes, wood, tubing and fabric to the advanced aircraft of WWII. I've always seemed to find a way to shy away from biplanes in general but now is time to roll the dice, crack open the box and journey down a new path.
When I opened the box and examined the parts, Lukasz Sznasder, the man behind Lukgraph models, included a wonderful lithograph of the Boeing, with a personal dedication.
Timing was with me as I decided to start the Boeing a just few days before the announcement of the GB and with the 'news of the GB, I came to a complete stop. A quick post to Kev and I was given the OK to enter the GB, since so little work had been done.
I present the Boeing F2B-1 and we're off to the races. I am still out to lunch on what to use for the flying wires: RB stainless steel RAF flat wire or EZ Line flat wire; I am leaning towards RB's wire.
Just a few photographs of the kit and my kickoff for the GB.
My meager start:
The Lithograph - Thank You Lukasz - so very much appreciated.
