I talked with a friend of mine and he showed me the dio he was working on, and in it there was this Citroën, that I thought looked quite nice. I checked the hobby shop and found this set with car and crew. I thought it could fit well in a dio with a plane.
I started building it on the build weekend the other week. Except for some glimpses in other pics I seem to have forgotten to take proper pics. So I took a pic of what I had done so far.
I had problems painting with the clear cote at the meeting and it didn’t turn out as I had hoped. I layed another cote today that is just slightly better.
Hopefully I can polish away some of the blemishes once the paint have cured properly.
Meanwhile I’ll start painting the figures.
My intention is to create a dio with the Fw190 I’m building.
When I got home last sunday the internet was down, which was annoying as it lasted for three days. One way to pass time is of course to build models and with nothing to do on my computer I could spend more time building models.
As I’m thinking of doing a small dio with the Citroen and figures I bought a while ago, I started building this plane to be part of the dio.
It’s a nice little kit and I got quite far before even taking any pics.
As the cockpit is inserted from the underside, I could glue the fuselage. The inside of the fuselage, wheel wells, cockpit and landing gear is painted and only need some detailing.
I bought this kit in one of those nostalgic impulses I get when I see kits that I’ve built when I was young. As I’m participating in a WW2 group build and my Mustang just had got some putty on that needed to dry before I can sand it properly, I decided to have a go at this kit.
This is an older kit without PE that comes with the newer ones.
The build starts with the lower hull, and it didn’t take long before I had to use putty on this one as well.
So I just had to let that dry for a while. Once dry I could continue the build. I mounted the frame and drive line parts, and prepared the wheels for assembly.
Then a while later the wheels was assembled.
I then started gluing parts to the upper hull and preparing parts to the gun.
Then the gun parts got some paint as I need the gun to be painted before proceeding.
Next will be assembly of the gun and getting it in place so the hull parts can be glued together.
I’ve painted covers and landing gear parts with white.
Then there was this question about the load out. For some reason Revell have put the wrong missile on the wrong load out point, and also it seems this one should have no bombs. And I who thought that would have looked cool.
Anyway there’s 2 kinds of missiles in the kit, Sidewinders and Sparrows, and only 2 of each. In reality there should be 4 Sidewinders in total. I’ve painted the ones I have.
The 2 other missiles seen in the pic are from my Tornado. Slightly different, but the Tiger meet Tonka don’t use them so i might use them for this kit.
I also should need a pair of fuel tanks instead of the bombs, to go on those pylons. I’ll see if I can scavenge up some.
