Work completed and some not!
Here are a few pictures of the CP Air DC-8 1:50th completed 2 weeks ago. It is on an original Douglas casting (I think serial 151). It sets my shop really well and I think it will remain there. I am starting another next week, that should turn out even better, and also on an original Douglas cast.
The Air Canada is a 1:72nd and was the hardest model I ever attempted without decals for the red. The red cheat line, the black glare shield and the white are hand painted. The nightmare was to curve the red to meet the cockpit corner and the black glare. It will soon be on its way to Robert V in Dallas.
The C-130 (Civilian L100-30) Hercules is my current project. It is based on a 1:72nd plastic/resin mould from Westway. I am doing it in the FirstAir livery that is based in the North West territories here in Canada. I made a stand for it and painted it white to represent the snow (it is not a DFM stand. Actually smaller). The decals on the stand will really compliment the project (picture just shows proofs). I have the propellers for it. I can't wait to finish this one. It is such a great and correct mould.
You'll also notice all the work in waiting here and there in the background.
Enjoy the pictures.
