A model that has sat unfinished in the shed for months now is a biplane that was slated to join the Steam Wars Navy but never started. I got the pilot ready, an Ironclad Gyro copter pilot, months ago and still it was not promoted to the front of the queue.
With the recent good weather, and with me undercoating stuff in blue and grey, this got its base and top done in these colours and a boost up the paint queue without realising it.
With so much of it complete after just the base coats it only needed a touch of black here and a bit of silver there.
A propeller and a set of decals later and she was almost done.
The wing mounted rockets went on after painting along with the MG, and suddenly after 5 months, she was done.
The ironclad pilot was a tight squeeze to get in (so lost his legs before being seated…)
This photo does it no justice but underside in blue…
…and top in grey makes it a match for the first of my Navy fly-boys.
I may go back and trim that overly long rocket stick. Hadn’t actually noticed that until looking the pictures over…
