According to my Putnam's USN Aircraft from 1911 the USN only used a few "Mitchells" for development purposes, however the USMC still called their PBJ-1's Mitchells.

Thanks Chris.

Today looked to be a good day for modelling.  Day off.  Weather was good.  I completed my chores by lunchtime.  Ate my left over pizza.  Retired to my shed and was just getting down to it when relatives showed up uninvited.

It was nice to see them but their timing sucked.

No unexpected visitors today.

I completed rigging the lower ratlines on the Sea Witch.   This is what I was trying to do yesterday when the in-laws arrived.

Polishing and last (probably) coat of clear on the psychedelic '57.  This is a crap photo.

Did nothing to the Corsair other than take these pics.

The Riv is now a nice subtle shade of orange.  I'm pondering the next step.

And the '30 Ford (have I mentioned this one before?) is close to completion.  This is what I picked up with turps on my fingers.  It turns out fingerprints can be repaired by gradually building up layers of metaliser with a brush before brushing over aqua clear.  Of course there is still time for me to f**k something else up.

The silver Ford looks interesting. And good save, without having to strip and repaint.  :thumbsup:
Chev is still a bit migrane-incuding if you stare at it too long... but coming along nicely.

Thanks folks.

The Ford started as a build for next years Ballarat show special theme which this time has to be 1/25 completely OOB.
However, I found myself unable to build a model with an exposed engine without adding spark plug wires and that breached the special theme rules.
So I also lowered the front end and moved the steering to the correct side.
Body is finished in Alclad Stainless Steel and Aqua Coat.  Chassis is SMS Gold under a few coats of Clear Red.
