Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Greetings folks!

 

Well here is one of my latest project in my rotation of builds, the WnW salmson 2. I started this this past Sunday and actually had a lot of time to work on it this week. So far I have about 18 hours into it. the fit is very good so far... as I said before I am set up to build and not fancy photography. :blush:  Just plain ole laziness on my part lol.

 I usually have several builds going at once so this WIP thread may have some gaps between updates. I also started my 1/32 Lanc at the same time, so...

Thanks Brian! Yeah the engine shutters are OOTB, they are actually molded in one piece. It was entertaining painting them :lol:.

 

As for the Nats, I would love to go but no dice this year. I don't have the extra cash for it although I do plan on going to San Marcos next year.

Same, same. It was good seeing you last year in PHX, and I too wish I was at Chatanooga and OshKosh this year!   Ill have to see about TX next year..............its nearly as far to San Marcos for me at it is for TN.

Again so far an over all great kit. It is  been challenging to paint this one. Multiple colors to mix, masking etc. But it has been fun so far!

The WNW kit looks fantastic.  Great interior detail and wood graining, a lot of which is sadly lost when you join things together!

 

And that Lancaster is huge!  One the one hand, it's a display space nightmare.  On the other, it's a stunning, big, impressive display piece that would fit well in a museum.  A really interesting kit.

What beautiful work, especially the interior. It's too bad it's not more visible on the finished model.

The wings are on but no glued yet. I gotta do some rigging before I permanently attach them..
