Well, here's the goods, hopefully this will all come together into a nice display model for the current 379th folks.

Yes, they are the Kits World decals, haven't used them before but they look pretty good. Will use some of the decals that were provided with the kit also to supplement what's not provided by the Kits World sheet.

Ooooohhhhh, very nice and shiny... off to a heck of a start!

You know, even though there's over 36 different builds of various Forts going on, it's still not anywhere close to being boring seeing another fort get started. This is great stuff!

Cheers,

Mark.

And every one is different and a different approach.

Sweet!

After a short deployment to Iraq, it's time to get cracking again. Started with some of the easier tasks to get the juices flowing again.

Cutting the True Details wheels from the slag blocks.

Cutting all them pesky engines and firewalls from the resin went alot faster when I busted out the R/C airplane razor saw instead of using the fine modeling one.

Began the arduous task of drilling out all the pushrod holes on each engine, thankfully most of the holes (too small for my "Hemi" pushrods) were molded in to use as a guide.

Engine with primer and paint applied waiting for weathering and pushrods to be installed.

Engine with pushrods installed and some weathering, nothing too fancy, just trying to spruce up the look in the cowls.

Now it's time to make that shiny new interior look a little used.

Kits world does the markings for "vonnie gal". Sprue brothers carries kits world, plus ebay.

Just purchased Hikin' For Home from Kits World website. Hence the new addition to my signature. I won't be able to participate in the group build, but I have a fort ready to go!
