2018 – Models for November

November 2018

It’s been a busy month doing other things so not as much modelling as usual had happened.  So all I have to put here is the Kora 1/72 Curtiss Wright SNC-1, in the colours of the Peruvian Air Force around 1946.  This is a short run kit and while the contents of the kit box didn’t look very promising the model turned out nicely.  The kit comes with options for four schemes and this is the most colourful of them.  There weren’t many of the fit problems that are usually associated with short-run kits though the wing trailing edges were huge until I filed them back.  I’d recommend this kit to modellers who have some experience and a lot of patience.

Here are a few models that I’d made earlier and took along to our monthly Modellers of Ballarat meeting.  You can see that, in my recycling old models to make up for a lack of new ones, I’m going through my little tank phase.  Consequently, here is a Trumpeter 1/72 Strv103b and an Ace 1/72 ERC-90.

And here are a couple more aeroplanes.  First a 1/72 Arsenal VG.90, assembled with patience and attention from a full resin Dujin kit.

Finally, an ancient Fujimi model of a Royal Australian Navy A-4G as it flew from HMAS Melbourne in the times when Australian had a carrier.
