If there wasn’t a Biggles book titled this, there certainly should have been.
I painted up some 1/285 aircraft for Check Your 6, and it took an unconscionable length of time. Some are Raiden, some Heroics and Ross, I think. Its been so long since I bought them, I’m not sure.
And then the matte sealer went all funny on me, causing much heartache. I managed to pull the worst of the damage back, though.
I also spent a while browsing websites to try and find the right colors. Then I gave up, because in this scale, who is to know?
Now to find some Italians.
It took me much longer than it should to paint these, but I finally finished. Something terrible going on with my dullcote though (probably because it is an antique at this stage). In any case, some 1/285 aircraft for Check your 6 (CY6).
Embarrassingly I don’t have a very good idea where these came from. The Fulmars are for a Friend, the Sunderland is because.. I dunno. it’s big? I’m pretty sure that some of the Fulmars are Raiden. Others are not; there is pretty clearly two manufacturers here.
For the Sunderland, I’ve had it a while, and no idea where it came from.
In any case, looking forward to dome desert-y action eventually.
