While I was finishing my Lancaster, my son was finishing up his P-40. Maybe it’s the proud Dad talking but I think he did a fantastic job. He turned out to be a great student and I think he’s hooked now. We already have his next build picked out.
So the build itself was 95% him. The canopy masking and installation along with the gear bay doors were the only aspects that I intervened with. The rest was all him. He took on the filling and sanding like a champ and it shows. He chose not to weather it and leave it with a clean look. It’s not what I’d go with but it’s nice to see his independence start to show. He has even “allowed” me to display it with my builds.
