Post by: Ryan K on Wed 08/12/20 07:08 PM
So I plan to make this kit

But this version JMSDF OH-6D with floats

Another example http://barnstormers.soragoto.net/tatey_e.html

The base color with be Vallejo Medium Yellow 71.002. I have not worked out the red/orange area color yet but I am leaning to Vallejo Orange Fire 72.008. The bottom portion of the tail is red.

We will see. I have built the kit before but have a history of pulling hemi when close to the finish line if you know what I mean so it will be interesting so how this plays out.

Here is another pic of the bird with a different kind of float device and not pontoons.

I started cutting plastic as one of the meetings and just finished getting the pontoons assembled.
