Williams Brothers 1/32 Gee Bee Z
This is my most recent model to cross the finish line. The Williams Brothers Gee Bee Z. The kit build was straight forward, and built OOB, with the exception of engine details being scratch built. The hard part was painting. The model was extensively prepped, then primed with white. Next, the scalloping demarcation lines were painted with MM gloss red, and the lines masked off with thin strips of tamiya tape. The yellow was then laid down, followed by more masking. Finally, the last coats of black were sprayed, and then a few coats of PFG were used. One before decals, many after to seal them in, and develop that high gloss “titaninine” finish!
“Pevee, I’ve flown a plane or two in my day! NOT LIKE THIS ONE YOU HAVEN’T!” Certainly my most challenging model yet, requiring that the movie ‘the rocketeer’ be watched multiple times for motivation! Hope you guys like it. Questions/comments Welcome and appreciated!
