Vultee V1A American Airlines
This is the 1:72 Special Hobby Vultee V1A. I previously built this as a Spanish Civil War bomber, but wanted to depict it in its civilian guise as well. Other than its SCW stable mate this one was much more difficult to track down.
The built went pretty much trouble free, almost till the end… After I stuck the decals on, I noted the anti glare panel didn’t look right. So I re-masked the area and re-sprayed. Of course I ripped off part of the decals when removing the masking tape 🙁
Luckily Mika from Artic Decals came to the rescue and produced a new set for me, correcting some of the errors in the original sheet as well.
