Anyway, I have made some great progress and these will be finished by tomorrow! I still have to finish minor details like the landing gear and add the props, but I have the paint and decals finished. Here are how they stand now, and just in case anyone sees the decal carrier on the Spitfire, these decals were from a kit that was about 20 years old!


If you couldn't tell, Dale Earnhardt was (and still is) my favorite NASCAR driver. These are a "what if" if he was a race pilot instead. I'm hoping that the chance of thunderstorms the weatherman is calling for in my area tomorrow at least hold off until I get my outdoor pics taken! ;)


Those look great Matthew!!! I especially like the P-51!

Same here, but 12-14 hour days.

If you want to extend the deadline, I'm sure no one would object.

Yeah, Jairus, if you want to extend it some, no objections here.

I don't have the long days like you guys, I wish I did because I'm on the oppisite side of the fence, I'm unemployed. ;) My 10-14 hour days are here on the forum or at the model desk, but I miss my 50-60 hour weeks I had when I was working.

Well, between the weatherman being right and a storm moving through the area right in the middle of my wheels up photo shoot and the wind twisting and turning the planes so badly I was getting airsick standing on the ground, I managed to get my 3 final build shots for both entries. I will post each plane in separate posts, that way if there will be a new thread for the completed builds, it will be easy for me to just copy and paste them. This has been a fun build and out of my normal comfort zone, not to mention it's also my first community build I have finished. I still have many more I've signed up for needing to be finished now! :rolleyes: Anyway, enough chatter, here's a teaser pic of both sitting on the runway, actually my front sidewalk. :D

Yes please, that would be helpful :rolleyes:


The motion has been seconded.
I guess we don't need a vote since there are still two other (besides me) builders who have not posted lately.

I guess another 15 days wouldn't hurt. Sorry Matthew. You and Wayne seem to be the only ones able to finish with-in a deadline.
(Maybe I can even finish now?)

There's nothing to be sorry about, Jairus. I'm glad to see you extend it, I might even be able to take some more pics with the wonderful WV fall colors in the background. :)

Okay, hearing no dissention regarding the extension...

Update:
Spent 2 hours last night on the German FW 190 entry. I think that in another couple of hours I may be ready to begin painting. Pictures later.

After another two hours spent last night.... this is as far as I am.

The body is now one piece for the first time!

Canopy has been glued together and sanded smooth. This will act as the mold for a vac-formed piece, to be painted and detailed to look more like its "sport plane" derived.

Gear down shot required some new thinner doors created. The original thick cast doors will be stuck in place for pictures only.

Almost there...

Matt your entries look great. I love the outdoor photos that you took. Looks very real. Jairus, thanks for extending the deadline. I'm still working on the base and the pylon before I can call this one complete. I should have a finished product by this coming Wednesday.

Thank you, even though I wish the fishing line wasn't as noticable in a few. :unsure:

Here is my completed work. Not sure if this is where we are to post the finished item but here it is anyway.

Early in this thread someone posted a link for some photo-etched spinning props. I went ahead and copied the image, resized it and printed the image onto decal film and then transferred the decal to a tinted clear styrene cutout to represent the spinning prop.

I scratchbuilt a pylon out of styrene tubing and aluminum tubing. I could only find one or two images of what a pylon looked like but I was lucky enough to pull an image of the top of the pylon with the Reno name on it. Again, I copied the image, printed it onto decal film and then transferred two of the images to the top of the pylon after painting it white. I used red striping tape along the length of the pylon. I sacrificed an old award plaque for a base and added ballast and turf and created a post for the plane to be supported on.

Very nice Wayne! :(

Just post your pictures here for now. Eventually we want to have a voting thread started and either link the images or re-post them in that thread.
Funny that you would use an old plaque like that. I have done the same thing for other ... ah, uses such as that. :rolleyes:

Wow, so much enthusiasm for this cbp when it first started only to have two people finish anything. Sure would have been nice to see more completed builds on this one.
