In-progress report on some of my Recce birds
« on: May 27, 2013, 09:10:47 AM »
The Italeri B-58A coming along nicely....





The RT-33A is also coming along okay having cut out the camera windows an replaced them with clear plastic cut from a CD box...









RB-45C at long last getting closer to painting !....




RB-47H - Pavla cockpit fitted and primed, Flight path resin nose cut out so I can install the compartment windows (hope this works !  :D)




RB-66 well on with painting...

Thanks to Geoff Hays for supplying drawings of the RB-45C bomb bay tanks, I have been able to build a pair out the 'drop tanks' from my RB-47 kit and lots of plastic card and strip....






Cheers,

Haydn.
