If we end up doing the Air Race Group Build, we can set it up to include any aircraft that was ever raced. I have some very cool pictures showing old Curtiss Jenny’s that were racing against cars right here on the beach at Daytona back during the Barn Storming era right after WW1 ended and these planes were sold as military surplus.
So keep that in mind and you might want to start making plans for a rather colorful 109 to add to the group………… Something tells me this will fly, I just have that gut feeling. I will post an article and see what kind of response we get for it.
I also will wait until several other current Group Builds end, so as not to distract from them. I have several ideas for future GB projects.
They range from this one about the Air Racing, which in all honesty was the brain child of James Robinson @jamesb
to a “Yellow Wings” era GB, “Korea- The Forgotten War, and even “Wings of the Emperor” for anything that was flown by the Japanese. Time will tell how these all pan out…………… and I don’t want to commit to anything I can’t follow through with.
I like the picture you posted with the mini jet………… going to Reno is on my bucket list. Someday……….
Thanks Keith @keithwaterhouse
for the information on the decal sets. I have heard of them before but I have never tried them out. However, I do have a set of the seat belts this company offers for use on this build. From what I can see, the belt harness really looks nice, and should be a good upgrade to what the kit has to offer.
Your drop tank looks fantastic !!!! I see what you mean about the lack of carrier film. Wow.
Earlier today I visited my friends and did a little Mustang homework and research on various things. It’s great to have access to several full sized ones for a reference.
That’s me standing there on the wing. I’m like a little kid in a candy store here !!!!
As soon as the resin parts arrive in the mail, I’ll post a little “mini review” using the real thing as a comparison. I was very fortunate today and I took a lot of pictures, especially where it counted……………
Thanks for sharing this information about these transfers. They may end up being an option, as I am planning on using various shades of Bare Metal Foil on the fuselage, and a few locations on the wing. The rest of the wings will get painted, just like the original was.
Those transfers look fantastic !!!!
As always, comments are encouraged.
