Rob….. Beautifully done. Just goes to show how nice an OOB can look.

I do not build post WWII aircraft, but if I did, I would definitely build a Skyraider. Such a good looking aircraft. Nice OOB build.

…turned to a great model! I’d be curious to learn more about your experience with the kit – fit, engineering, detail?
Craig Abrahamson said on May 1, 2013
I agree….it was a joy to build mine (although I opted for a “wheels up” configuration and no wing-fold mechanism – obviously). The only snag I found was most likely self-inflicted somehow. I couldn’t get the pilot to hunker down into the seat far enough to get the canopy closed – oh well. Go take a look at the end product – it was my first post on iModeler. Nice work on yours.

Great build!…I do agree with the rest of the comments. The Skyraider is such a bizarre/interesting plane to look that I like a lot!.
congratulations for your beautiful work.

Your model, Sir, is a thing of beauty. Your table, however, is not.
Walt Babst said on May 1, 2013
Well said Bill, I was thinking the same thing. I would add though that I really like the glass case in the background.
Really nice Skyraider, I have heard that those kits are pretty awesome. When ever I see one at a show they are usually stunning. Good job on yours Rob.

great build and scheme
Rob Anderson said on May 2, 2013
Wonderful and my favorite Spad scheme! I did the Tamita kit in those colors. I will post them some day after the memory of your great build fades, wouldn’t want mine laughed at 🙂

Thanks for all the comments!
A word on the kit/build:
The kit fit was fantastic, as you all know the ZM kit has many parts. That said, if you treat each “section” as its own little model the final construction just falls together. I used almost zero filler….O’ the wings will fold. The tolerances are that tight.
I built this kit for a friend who had ties to this squadron and delivery was at the former AAA hobbies in Atlanta Ga. This explains the cases and the table as neither of which I own lol.

Thundering Jaysus! I thought this was the Tamiya kit, just noticed the ZM.
I received the ZM Mustang for my birthday and I have to say that it is a very comprehensive kit that has to be built from the inside out. What I cannot understand is why the ZM 1/32 Mustang is about $25.00 cheaper than the Tamiya Mustang.

Nice Spad! Perfect weathering.

Another model I have in the building stage. I hope mine turns out half as good as yours

Rob, just found this model of yours. You did a bang-up job with a superb subject! I love this plane and really would love to build this ZM kit someday. I know its a little pricey these days but looks well worth it. Your finish and weathering are spot-on and flawless. How was the overall build experience? I know its a somewhat complex model but are there anything problem areas?
