Check out some excellent Sunderland photos in the Norwegian national archives:

Wow - some amazing shots of many different types there. Thank you for sharing. I noticed a few Catalinas too - very relevant as I've just taken delivery of a 1/32nd one!

This is looking awesome Tom, can’t wait to see it under a full coat of paint! Those 3D prints look great too!

Beautiful work Tom. great stuff.

 

Thank you, gentlemen, for your kind words. 

 

I am hoping to get a splash of paint on her this weekend - probably the extra dark sea grey - as the weather looks promising and the wife and kids are out. Happy days.

Greetings all,

 

I have been confined to the house over the last week and bit due to Covid, but being in isolation does have its perks. After a pretty grim 48hrs I was back to feeling fine so got the airbrush out and started painting this beast. 

 

Total painting time was more or less 10 hours and I used three tins of Xtracolor paint for each of the Extra Dark Sea Grey, Slate Grey and Sky - the surface area is HUGE. I still need to do the upper wing insignias but this will have to wait until the weekend as I'm now back to work. 

 

You'll have to forgive the horrible phone pictures - these were snapped in the living room under artificial light - but when she's flat-coated I'll get the decent camera out and shoot some pics in natural light.

Things are progressing nicely, and the end is appearing on the horizon!

 

All the best,

Tom
