Den fighters, (forever)

Neat! I almost forgot about this one K2.............  :popcorn:

 

Yea, it's taken a while for the aftermath of the move to settle, but now I think it's time to resume work on these. Some are still packed away, but some are here, as well as a few I haven't even started yet.

I started another Otaki F6F last night too, and it should go together fairly quickly. I need to find all my seated 1:48 pilots though, and at the moment, have no idea where they are.

It turns out that after the move, most of my parts for the already started kits are,... who knows where, so it looks as if I'll have to start fresh, at least until all the missing parts can be located, assuming they're ever located. To that end, I'll be starting this ICM Mustang, as at least it is 100% complete; still in sealed bags in fact. I haven't yet chosen a scheme, so I'll begin searching for that right now. The ICM kit appears to be quite nice, and I believe can be built either as a B or C model.

Oddly enough, kit gives two different markings, but there's only an illustration of one of the two for decal placement. It also seems that a C model, cannot be built from this kit, so it looks like a B it shall be.

Me too, Harv. I'm intending to attend our regional in September, but I'm not sure if I'll make it or not.

Well, here are the prop templates (11'-2" diameter), for the Mustang. I'll also be making a matching mask to spray blades, as I always seem to muck that up when I do it freehand.

All in all, I'm fairly impressed with the ICM kits; pretty good detailing, fine recessed lines and (where appropriate), rivets. I ran into a very good deal on about twenty of these a few years back, and I've been completely satisfied with every one. Perfect for ceiling queens, that's for sure.

Instructions call for interior to be yellow (chromate I assume), but I don't believe that's correct, so I'll be going with green, not that it really makes much difference.
