1/48 Travel Air Mystery Ship air racer

Recommended Posts

This is the old Hawk kit, in the Testors box with new decals. For a 1/48 kit it's pretty small. Detail is pretty much non existent, there is literally no interior to speak of except for a pilot figure holding a control column, but I have omitted him. The outline of the colour scheme is also engraved into the surface of the kit, so it's all been either masked and sprayed, or painted freehand. I knocked up a small base for it to sit on out of a picture frame and some floch.

One of the ancestors of plastic kits, but still a lovely result for something of its age. It really holds well the passing of time, thanks also to your skills, Brad.

What did you use for the rigging?

 

Some very fine knitting elastic I pinched from mums sewing box. I drilled .2mm holes and threaded it through.

Lovely work Brad! I love those golden-age racers.

 

I built the same kit as a teenager, but didn't have the patience to paint the thing!
