      A friend of mine has contracted me to detail several Franklin Mint Aircraft. Starting with the B-26 Marauder. He supplied me with the aircraft, several sets of decals, parts from other Monogram kits, and resin parts. Spent a few hours today disassembling the die cast beast.

    She's starting to look like she's been used and abused. Now it's time for some final tweeks and touchups.








    Thanks for looking

    Hey everyone. It's been a while. As you may recall I'm building this for a friend. When he saw the pictures of the weathering he decided he did not like it. Too much paint chipping. He wanted a replica of Idiots Delight, and that's what I did. Oh well...I touched up 90% of the chipping, then started weathering again. Still have a lot of work to do. I hope he likes this.

    That looks a heck of a lot better than the original paint scheme. I really love what you did with it.

    Thanks. My friend picked her up and he loves it. He wants me to do a Franklin Mint B-25, B-24, and B-17 next.
