I think if it was mine i'd try to hold it for painting by shoving a stick up it's cargo bay...

Looks to me a bit like a winged Narwhal.

You'll need to remove the raised squares near the exhausts - they run in two parallel lines vertically.  This should actually be a stencil!  There's a raised lump on teh port side which will need drilling out as it's a vent.  Replace the kit bang seat with something that looks closer to a Martin Baker mk 4 seat.  Pavla do a rather nice resin cockpit intended for teh Trumpeter abortion which may fit.

And the cockpit interior should be a medium grey.

Looks good.  The camo is similar to that used by Sea Shepherd.

Blog Entry #225

progress is going slow, but were getting there  :mellow:
main work on the 2 1/72 Me262's is now mostly done, paintwork is about to begin on the landinggear before assembly.
the 1/144 NF-5A and F-104C (both realWorld) have recieved some attention, the NF-5 recieved its first layers of camoflage paint, the F-104C has resumed progress after over a month on the waiting shelf due to decal sourcing problems.

meanwhile, im looking at the stash for my entry into the Flying Boat GB.
i got quite  a few kits to choose from and i have narrowed the list down to the following possible projects:

-Martin Mariner in Belgian Navy service (vintage 1/150 scale revell kit)
-Supermarine Walrus in Aeronautique Militaire Belge markings, May 1940 (revell 1/72 kit)
-Boeing 314 Clipper in either RAF Coastal Command, French Navy or other military/civilian colors (Airfix 1/144 kit)

one or even 2 of these projects will be built for this GB.
meanwhile, im still looking into freeing up space on the shelves, but i still have a spare shelf that can be used, it just needs to be shortened in to fit the room. one issue im worrying about atm is weight, these shelves are quite heavy and im worried they might give way and crash down, destroying my entire 1/72 collection. another option would be to replace all these with a lighter plywood/triplex shelfing system.

thats about all i have for this update, for now, im gonna leave you with this WIP picture of the NF-5A  :mellow:

more soon.....
