      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.

    I finished up the engines today and painted the gear wells. Installed the windows into the fuselage and painted the tips of the props yellow.






    Merry Christmas

    I started weathering the wheel wells today and applied the decals to the props. Dull coat will follow tomorrow.

    When you get done with this, just think about how much you've added to the value of the model. There are dozens of Franklin Mint B26s out there but this one will be one of a kind. Great work.

    Added some lead weight today to ensure she sits on the nose gear.

    Started working on the seams. Using bondo, I fill the seam them just as it starts to kick, run a scribing tool down the existing seam. When done, all the seams should be balanced out!

    She's 90% ready for color. Working with a Die Cast model requires a new method of attach when painting. Almost everything has to be assembled prior to paint.

    Well, I'm back. Between Working 70+ hours a week and having the flu last week, I haven't spent but 5 minutes in the shop. But today, I finally was able to get down to business.
    She's ready for touchup then clear.







    Enjoy your weekend

    Idiots Delight comes to life.

    Decals are applied. Couple of coats for Future tomorrow, then the fun begins making this thing look like it's been to hell and back!
