  1. This is going to be masterful...I hope you've planned a safe spot for it. 🙂

  2. Thanks Craig,... yes, I have a spot reserved for this ship

  3. You're a better man than I, charlie Brown. My Trumpeter Indianapolis went out with the rest of the trash in our last move. Even after you do everything you're doing, it's still a POS.

  4. Anthony, you are a better man than me too. The precision, patience, and skill you are applying to the 'Indi' is amazing. Respect to you for taking a flawed kit and making her beautiful.

  5. I applaud you! I just mentioned on another post, I think some of the most rewarding projects are taking dog kits and making the best you can out of them, even if they are not "perfect" in the end! Enjoy the ride, it's coming along nicely!

  6. Hello Anthony,
    Thanks for sharing your WIP with us. I am impressed. I take it for granted, that most parts are not yet glued into place? This in connection with the paint job.
    I will keep following this build. Regards, Dirk / The Netherlands.

  7. Hi Anthony, so far you've put in a lot of hard work and added a lot of detail, I hope you go ahead and complete this project and don't let Tom Cleaver's remarks discourage you, POS stands for "piece of success"!

  8. Excellent build, thanks for pictures too! It should give me the extra motion to finish my "Indy by Academy in 1/350 scale" in been sitting in dry dock to long!

  9. motivation not motion (can not type) in above post
