Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22B Osprey

That’s another one ready for painting; The final bits were added such as the windscreen (which was masked before gluing it in place) and some intakes on the engine pods so the model will now be given a wipe over with IPA then I can start spraying it. To help with the painting, I’ve leftContinue reading “Hasegawa 1/72 CV-22B Osprey”

If it is I’ll put some lead inside the engine cowlings as there is no roomContinue reading “ICM 1/48 OV-10A Bronco”
