It came from the spares bin!!
« on: September 19, 2021, 12:48:28 AM »
This is a current WIP that has been shelved until I decide on a paint scheme. I had to order an extra sprue from a Tamiya Corsair as a used kit I bought was missing the propeller. Hence I ended up with a spare fuselage and some cockpit parts.

After looking through the parts bin and trying a few things It lead to this:


I'll try and update with more progress pics. I figure there are parts from about 30 different kits into it so far. everything from nacelles from a Ju-88, to drop tanks from a mIg 21 to spare wheels off a Morris Mini.
