I have been watching the builds progress here and I have to say that I am seeing some really great models being built.
I am currently working on two models that are getting close. One, a Great Wall, TBD-1 ‘Devastator’ has paint on her, and is currently getting the fidley bit installed, before the finishing touches. Number two, is a Hasegawa B5N2 “Kate”, which is getting close to being painted, and while these two dry for a couple days, I though I’d start on a third and maybe a fourth, to help pass time while the the others dry.
Inspired by Frank Steffan’s recent F4F, and watching Brian Scott’s build, I thought I’d get out another Tamiya F4F myself, and model MACH Thomas Cheek’s aircraft he flew at Midway, and was credited with three shoot downs over the Japanese Fleet on 4 June, 1942. His aircraft wore number sixteen, and was lost when Yorktown sank on 7 June.
Here are some engine and cockpit pictures so far…
