« Part 3: T2 is built and we are moving on to the air support. Part 4 of planes, trains and vehicals? series Part 5: the bomber takes flight but is without fighter cover »

I have finally gotten back in the shop after a week or so of not being able to feed the habit. I decided to work on Dad’s military pieces the bomber is pulling together I glued the engines to the wings and the tail section is glued. I will put wings and tail together next. I also took some dowels and tried my hand at propellers, they are dry fit together. I still need to adjust the angles and trim them down to length. Not sure if I like them opinions?

The second plane is going to be a hellcat the bomber and fighter are dad’s fav’s from WW2. I think I’ll glue wood on each side, the plane just does not look wide enough to me. He asked for profile but I want wider. Anyway my niece is coming over for a few days so probably will be weekend before I get to work on it again.
