ICM 1/48 O-2A (late production)

Despite the very warm weather here in the UK at the moment, I managed to finish spraying the O-2 and it is now ready for gloss varnishing.

The grey needed a very light sanding as some areas dried to a gritty finish, once done the model was resprayed but with the addition of Tamiya lacquer paint retarder. Even the lacquer white sprayed well with some retardent in too.

The only gripe so far is after removing the masking tape from the roof of the fuselage, I managed to break the horizontal aerial in two however this will be replaced with brass strip as I wasn’t happy with the kit supplied item as it was too thick.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
