    Is WNW nearing the end of its run?

    Isn't it about time for a new release from them in all seriousness? Ryan

    Been there many times Kent, it's no big deal. I go through cycles of even what to build...for example I was into armor for a solid two years...didn't even care about an airplane, but now the poles have reversed.... Iv'e said it before that the talent level is very high and it's almost a job to keep up, learn that new technique, buy that next book, and so on. Over the years I've come to realize my techniques are my own, my models look I built them and I'm fine with that. Sorry for this diversion but I think its all related. Part of the problem also in this scale is the complexity of the kits, each step is almost a finished model. You can eat an elephant but only one piece at a time, I try not to be overwhelmed with the entire project at once, but it is difficult. Ryan

    Clean up the model area and re organize, you will be surprised what you find and then when the time is right you will return.

    Work continues, adding instruments to the side walls. The silver bright work on the dials is Testors Metalizer dry brushed over square bottle silver. I figured with the tight tolerances of the kit I would force it into place first and then decal as not to damage the face of the dial if I had to apply pressure to fit.

    Who will be the first to produce a "Hitler finds out the shortcomings of the Hobby Boss B-24", some of those are really comical. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=hitler+finds+out Ryan

    Thanks guys. I also wanted to mention the belts are embossed with stitching, so take care in keeping the good side up on multiple belt assembly. I did not realize this at first and had my folds the wrong way on one of the lap belts. Also it appears the Baron has put on weight as the belts are too long in my opinion, my own fault as you can control your belt length when you build them. I did not realize this until the very end, but oh well the set is belted and I can move on. Ryan

    I finally got around to fitting the seat belts, the HGW belts are time consuming but worth it! After painting the buckles on fret, the belts were removed and installed....it was much easier to do this while they are still attached to the fret. I found it helpful to trim the ends of the belts before threading them in; medium weight super glue was used to secure. Once all the belts were finished the clasp ends were installed by first taping the belts down to the cutting mat and then super gluing the buckle in place. I went easy on the wash for the belts, I didn't want them too dirty. In the end I'm happy with the look, although the drape could be a little better. On to the pics!
