2018 Modeling #21

Date: 3/15/2018

Time 9:00 p.m. to 10:20 p.m. (1.33 hrs.)

2018 Total time: 24.63 hrs.

Finally got back to the bench after 11 days away.  This is what happens to me every year.  As I get further into the year, my bench time gets less and less.  With recent life developments, I don’t see this year being any different.

I did get some building done.  Mainly added some of the grab handles on the T-34/85 and worked a bit on the MXY-7.  Primed the interior and then painted it with Alclad dull aluminum.  The grab handles on the T-34/85 have been very time consuming.  I think they will look much better than the plastic parts, but what a pain.

Roy Sutherland of Barracudacals has released two sets of stencil data decals for Late Mark Spits and Fw-190s.  Roy’s stuff is great.  I’ll be picking both these up.

Air Force PR

The Air Force is drawing back big on outreach while it retrains its PR operations.  IMHO, in my opinion it isn’t a good sign that they are spending this much time on bureaucracy.

It looks like the first kits will be available at the beginning of April.  Unsurprisingly, the first release will have Czech markings.
