This week I was able to get the fuselage prepared and base coat painted. I also made some changes to the antennas on the top of the fuselage to match the aircraft in the movie. I am working on the decals now. The plan for the upcoming week is to finish the decals and give the aircraft a nice gloss coat then work on finishing the main landing gear. Looks like just a few more “scenes” to finish this one.

On a side note, I am back to working on new decal sets for air wings and ships. This week I added the USS Belleau Wood LHA-3 decal set which is available in 1/700, 1/500, and 1/350 scales. Stay tuned for a few air wing sets that I am nearly finished with the art work. Don’t forget to check out all the decal sets at Decals
