1/72 Rescue. “dio”
The two most rescued aviators in model aviation history ! These lucky fellows are just two of the figures that come with every Monogram Hu-16 Albatross. Anyone who has built the Hu-16, has these guys laying around somewhere, remember them ?
During the Christmas holidays, I thought I would take a break from modeling…well, not entirely. I wanted to keep my brush wet, at least. The idea came, more or less as a joke, to see what I could make this look like with a little paint, for a “something that floats” club theme. I used all acrylics, including a little “metallic aqua’ , and some “pearl”. Then there was the challenge of making the raft look like yellow rubber. It’s small, and it’s simple, but it was enjoyable. One of these days I’ll get around to finishing that Abatross too. (thanks for the decals, Frank)
