Modeling MOJO
« on: April 19, 2019, 09:22:40 pm »
Finally getting my modeling mojo back on track.  Too many other projects in the way but I'm making time.

This one sat in the shed for about 12 years.  Got it pretty much cleaned up and found all the parts.  Ordered some new metal landing gear to replace the broken ones.  Somehow I ended up with two canopies.

Finding parts and mojo at the same time is always good! Carry on!
BTW what kit is that?

Kool beans!

Though for a moment I thought you might have meant this:

   ;D
USS New Jersey, BB-62, Vietnam
USS Neshanic, AO 71, out of Lindberg Neches and a WHOLE lot of extra details
And several other vessels named after NJ, locations and battles herein, and people herefrom

Well, it's taking hold pretty strong.  Got this far with the Mosquito and been working on a tank destroyer base one the M8.  Pulled out some other whatifs that stopped about 10 years ago and got them in the line.

Nice. The Mosquito is such a tough looking bird sometimes, that stance...like a mini-Lancaster.

Found a new way to hold a model.    :rolleyes: 

I'd just glued on the engine and needed to keep it upright.

We were over at the other house doing some work and I found another tote marked models.  No models but lots of spares from other projects.  The best part was I found my other airbrush.

I think I need to go through the totes and sort them by armor and aircraft.

Happy days.
