Here we are two days removed from the conclusion of the Warthog Project and it’s business as usual regarding the workbench. The parts forest is back up and ready to begin preliminary painting of cockpits, ordinance, and landing gear. I have a photo-etched cockpit set and boarding ladders for the Su-27 that will take a little while to put together so I’ll be wrapped up in detail work for the week. It’s hard to keep myself from adding anymore to the mix right now as I am finding inspiration in quite a few different kits. I’ll stick with the current six and see how they go.
The goal for the rest of the weekend is to start painting the cockpit pieces to get them ready for assembly. The ordinance and landing gear will follow suit during the marathon of paint. I do need to check my stock to be sure that I have all the colors I need for the three German kits, the Russian kit, and the British kit.
Well I’m back at step one again and I’m excited to jump in and get started. From the looks of the kits being built, I don’t carry with me any worries of future blunders. While I do know that they are a certainty, I’m ready and willing to overcome them.
