So I "erased" the colors and returned to square one.
Such a shame! that was beautiful! If you wanted colour, using red or even a turquoise on the front canard surfaces would have been very cool. Some yellow or red banding and panels would really tart it up.

However I look forward to what you do come up with!

Informal Lockdown/COVID-19 GB / 'Topping' style Vought Corsair
« Last post by robunos on Today at 10:47:50 PM »

Okay, so I've tried to be good, and use the Lockdown time to finish up the stack of half-completed models that I have, but . . .
I feel the need, the need, to cut and glue plastic . . .   ;D
So, here we are. I've long had a liking for the 'Topping' style models, put out by aircraft manufacturers, when trying to sell their latest wares.
I acquired a kit last year, with the intention of doing a model in this style, but haven't had an excuse to build it, until now . . .
Here's the box,

and the runners.

I was able to crack on with this, and reached this stage after an hour, or so.

That's All For Now, Stay Tuned . . .

EDIT: I was supposed to post this last night, but my Image Host was 'Down for Server Maintenance'.

Always liked the Wellesley and an ASW application would suit it's long rage really well. A late war application could use a centimetric radar under one wing and a Leigh Light under the other.

Now there's a familiar view, The Needles, Isle of Wight UK. My home town is just a few miles away on the mainland to the west (left in this photo).

Here's something interesting, as you can see the Needles and peninsular are chalk (famous all along the southern coast of the UK), but the next peninsular above it is different. The cliff face has minerals of all the different colours you can think of and you used to be able to buy a test tube at a stand at the top of the cliff and then work your way down a cliff path and fill the tube with the different minerals. These days though, you buy a test tube full of sand which has various colours dyed in ---  ::) Mostly because so many people were taking the minerals the cliff was disappearing ---
