I have been working on this model for nearly a year now. Hoping to apply clear coat this week and park her on the shelf. I photographed the entire PWA Electra fleet back in the seventies and my slides were a great source of reference. CF-PWG was the only full pax version that PWA operated.

Thats a gorgeous model Tony. Very well done. Excuse my ignorance as I do not restore models. The first image has the model completed painted with a primer paint. Then the model appears to be polished aluminum. Do you paint the chrome finish on the model?

Sorry I should have arranged the pictures properly! She was delivered as a fully polished aluminum casting. I then applied the primer, and finally the paint. Decals came from Ben at V-1, he really is a great guy to work with.

Too bad you're not a little bit close to me as I have a couple of those Electras needing your magic!
