Curtiss Soc Seagull – vac u form project – 1/48 Wings
I love U.S. Navy planes and specially those of the yellow wings era, but the Curtiss Soc Seagull is amazing. Unfortunately biplanes of this period are very difficult to be found in 1/48 scale. The Curtiss Seagull is, from my view point, very interesting plane because it was the only U.S. Navy biplane to serve aboard ship during World War. I wanted to try to build it. I was very lucky and When I found one in a model show Near Rome I could not believe it. I bought it immediately at a very reasonable price. It was a hard but, very amusing job. My first vac u form project. I started this project few month after it was in my stash in dec 2015.
Every time i found my self in troubles i needed some relaxing time building another easier project OOB until I got the correct idea to solve the problem that stopped me, in September 2018 it was completed.
