  1. Looks like a great start. I have been slowly plunking away at this kit myself. I agree whole heartedly it is a wonder to work with. Enjoy what's left of the weekend, Chris
  2. I hate to repeat what has been said but WOW!! Some great techniques shown here and inspiration not just for this kit but others as well. Keep up the great work! Chris
  3. Believe it or not even in a dessert environment hypothermia in a patient with shock is a killer. Those little Mylar blankets are put on for a reason. Being from the great white north it's a real challenge to keep people from becoming hypothermic. Looks great so far. 👍 Chris
  4. That is fantastic! Glad to hear it and looking forward to it. Chris
  5. Hi there, Any chance of a reissue on this awesome book? Mine went AWOL. 😞
  6. Finished putting the decals on the aft cabin area. Looking at the reference pictures I have I made the unwelcome discovery that the walls of the aft cabin are covered with a quilted insulation. http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/awa01/401-500/awa449-CH-149-Spenard/31.jpg http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/awa01/401-500/awa449-CH-149-Spenard/33.jpg I don't know how I missed that. Well that isn't happening with this model. Oh well... Carrying on: The SAR and Flight Engineer seats turned out OK. All put together: Slowly getting there. Chris
  7. Finished the front wheel well. Went to add the landing lights and realized... I had installed the photoetched pieces backwards. Bad words were said. :bandhead2:/> I just can't think of a way of fixing it. Chris
  8. I used the Belcher Bits Decal on the loading ramp and they were really good. Very impressed. Chris
  9. Thank you for the link and for the compliment about my skills. I am just getting back into the hobby after a long hiatus. There are a lot of amazing additions that weren't affordable when I was doing this up to about 10 or so years ago. I looked at your build as well as Emil's and as you mentioned above have checked out some other forums to find out more about this kit. Looks like I have some serious work ahead of me. I hope I am up to the challenge. Your finished conversion looks really great. How were the decals that came with the conversion from Belcher's Bits? They look really good. I know I'm still a long way off but still curious. I'm hoping to get some work done over the next couple of nights. Thanks for looking, Chris
  10. Thank you for the compliment. Do you have any advice, having completed this bird? Did you do a WIP of your project? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again, Chris
  11. I found out much to my displeasure while dry fitting that the Port interior wall is now about 1 mm too long. The instrument panel with the Eduard set added: Here is a shot of the assembled SAR seats and the Flight engineer seat from the Belcher's Bits set. About the only deviation I made from the instructions was to add an I beam on the base of the SAR seats instead of the square beam suggested for support. The square beam is accurate but I like the visual interest of the I beam. I just hope I can do them justice when I paint them. Chris
  12. I really wish I was talented enough to paint that level of detail. The panels are from Eduard's very nice interior set. Thanks for looking, Chris
  13. Thanks Ray. Way slower then I had planned but still creeping along. Chris
  14. Are the construction pictures on this forum? or can you provide a link to them? Truly inspirational! Great job, Chris
