Monogram A-26 part 2

July 30, 2013 · in Aviation · · 5 · 1.5K

As promised, a few shots of the on a base with her pilot. George, it only took 11 weeks this time...!

The base is a scrap piece of 3/4 oak plywood I had lying around. The edge was routered to make it look a little nicer. The concrete is craft posterboard cut into sections and painted with a generic automotive primer. The pilot figure is from a Me-262 kit, slightly modified to make him look a little more Korean USAF vintage. He was a bit of a chore as the old eyeballs ain't what they used to be.

My apologies for the quality of the photos. They were taken at great expense at the very last minute...

  1. Nice looking bird. George sets it off.

  2. Having the figure really makes a difference to the display (and he has a great name!).

  3. Indeed, a great job.

  4. Excellent! And this old Monogram kit is ... ? Beautiful?
