It’s been awhile since my last post so here’s an update. I’ve completed 3 more models since the B-17 and really have no excuse or reason as to why I haven’t posted anything regarding them. Here are some pictures for you to see, then we’ll talk.
This is a 1:72 scale B-29 used in the Pacific Theater of Operations to bomb the Japanese home islands. The model was asked for and built for a Navy Veteran who was stationed in Washington as the Navy archivist. Why he wanted a B-29 I don’t know, but what the Veteran wants, the Veteran gets!
The next build on the schedule will be the biggest model I’ve ever built. It’s a 1:35 scale PT Boat very much like the one President Kennedy skippered. Had I known how big the model was I would have opted for another scale. There is a formula to determine the length of the model. The real subject is 80 feet long so you multiply 80 feet by 12 (inches to a foot) and come up with 960. Then divide that by the scale, in this case 35 and come up with a length of over 27 inches of model! Yep, it’s a big one. Because of the size and the incredible amount of detail to this kit, I will be posting a thread dedicated to the build.
