JB-2 Loon 1/144 (OWL Resin)
One of my older models represents JB-2 Loon, #902 belonging to the newly formed USAF, Alamogordo proving grounds (later Holloman AFB), New Mexico ca.1948.
The launcher with RATO bottles, front propeller, finer surface details and engine pipe plus its front support were scratchbuilt. The wing was also repositioned – moved to the rear a little bit. It was my first approach to the glossy white paint (Gunze Sangyo C series) and it is a bit overdone. Next one will be better. 😉 The panel lines (in fact welds) were drawn with very sharp pencil on matt Olive Drab paint and then the whole engine was weathered with artistic oils.
