Hi Andy,

 

Let's hope you're out of the hospital soon!

 

Cheers,

 

Peter

Talked to both of my doctors today. They said maybe in a couple days. With meds I'm showing good improvements. We need to wait and see.

Doctors kicked me loose today. YAY!!! Gawd I hate hospitals. Got a decent meal (I think they go out of their way to make hospital food taste like crap), came home and got a look at my mail, and saw that I got the IP, and another set of decals for this build. Went ahead and slipped the IP into the cockpit with just a minor amount of trimming to get it to fit good. Painted the dash flat black, masked, and glued the wind shield in place and put a coat of interior green on the outside of the frame. Tomorrow I'll squirt some color on the rest of this thing.

I bought 1 set of decals originally for this build. They are Pappy Boyington's " markings"  for #86 Lucybelle. Well after doing a tiny bit of reading I find out that the plane was strickly a pubicity photo shoot, and did not even belong to  VMF-214. In fact the photo shoot had to be done over because someone in a hurry, stuck some of the kill markings on backwards. Not exactly the plane I think I want to represent.

 

I bought a 2nd set of Kepford's white "29 decals. These are pretty much the same as what came with the kit anyway, and at least they are for a real combat aircraft. So VF-17 white "29" it is.

Thanks Mike

I'm ready to put a coat of gloss clear on now. Got all my stuff out, got setup to spray....OH! but I'm out of gloss....Doooh!  I think I got the last bottle from my local hobby shop too. Ordered 3 bottles of Mr. Super Clear gloss on Amazom. Will be delivered on Saturday.

Got a coat of clear shot yesterday, and most of the decals on today. Just a few doodads to finish up, Nav lights,landing gear (still waiting on some wheels) and the antenna mast and pitot tube. I'll try some more weathering then hit it with a coat of flat, and this one will be just about done.

That's looking quite good for such an old kit - especially since you're building it out-of-box with few to no mods!


Kev

Thanks Kevin.
