Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22B Osprey

Work is progressing slowly but it’s getting there. Before gluing the upper fuselage in place and engine nacelles together I blanked off the insides with black plastic sheet then sprayed the interiors black so that you couldn’t see through to the cabin windows;

The rectangular intakes either side of each nacelle had the leading edge thinned out to a more scale thickness. The same was done to the intakes on top.

Before spraying the upper fuselage I added a small square hole either side as the kit doesn’t have them;

After making the square holes either side I blanked them off with black plastic strip

The next job is to make the sensors on the fins which should be interesting plus I need to either make or find the fairing that goes on the top left of the rear fuselage of current CV-22’s. The shape of it is very reminiscent of those found on aircraft such as the Beech 18 or DC-3 so I’ll have scratch around the spares box as I scrapped an Airfix DC-3 a few years ago but kept all the useful bits.

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.
