Late entry but here goes!

Recommended Posts

I'm building the Italeri 1/48 V-22 Osprey completely OOB. Hope to finish it in time. I will post pics tonight.

Ok, I got quite a bit finished today...the cockpit, interior, and glued the major portion of the aircraft together and filled and sanded.

Cool work so far Slick. your workbench looks like a ringer for mine. Can't wait to see the finished article. What decals are you going to use? The box ones or those from MAW?

What is with the Emlers School Glue?

Ha! I was trying something with putting in the windows, but it wasn't working well and I eventually gave it up.

The box ones or those from MAW?

I'm probably going to stick with the box decals, unless I can find something quick.

Sorry I haven't updated in a long time, but i happened to burn my hand and fingers and have been unable to work on models...it's even hard to type this, but I can't stay away from ARC. Anyway, I'm still hoping to finish on time, but we will see.

Yeah...uhm.....the fit is, well, I'll put it at moderate. However, the raised panel lines are near impossible to sand around...but I try. The model is pretty large, and the looks make it rahter exciting, but it's not the best kit. I don't rescribe...only because I don't have the tools and haven't aquired the patience to do so at this stage in my modeling career, but if your someone who doesn't mind redoing the panel lines I would rescribe, at least to make working on it easier.

Thanks for the comments!

Ok, I've decided a week and a half with burns is not going to keep me from building anymore...so I did quite a bit today while watching the Live Chat window :cheers:

Sorry I don't have more pics, but I filled and sanded the fuselage and put together the nacelles. I will fill and sand those tomorrow and it's off to the paint shop for some primer and hopefully the first coat of paint!

Ok, I finished filling and sanding and now it's time to head to the paint shop. However, I've noticed a problem...the blades are too long. I will be cutting them to fit shortly. I have also masked everything.

Now onto some pics!

Thanks guys! Here are some pics I just took after removing the mask. I really like the way the paint came out! It sucks that the camera makes these shades of paint lighter than they really are. You kinda have to be here looking at it to see the real colors. I guess it works just like the real thing!
