Lucky Gallon FG-1 Tamiya 1/48th
Here is the latest for fans of the Cleveland Air Races. Cook’s Lucky Gallon in 1/48th. New lower carb scoop, abbreviated oil cooler inlets and I made a plug for the tail wheel doors. I had lots of help from the guys on the FB racing page to get the color as close as possible. I used Model Car World Ivory and a mix of Tamiya Red and a few drops of Black to get the maroon color. Greg Drawbaugh put the decals into production to round out the build. The only cutting to fit the resin scoop was shortening the lower cowl flaps.
Chuck Wahl is currently restoring this airplane back to flying conditions and it will be painted as Lucky Gallon. Can’t wait to see this fly!
