« Part 13: the spitfire moves along with a mustang Part 14 of planes, trains and vehicals? series Part 15: yes I am at it again »

The spitfire and mustang are almost there. I have painted the base and planes waiting for it to dry to put the P51 and SPITFIRE on the bases. Then clear coat each. They are both out of pine as well as the base. I still need to work on my propellers something fierce, otherwise I am somewhat happy with this. Oddly enough like the first planes which were requested by my father these were requested by my Aunt or Aunt inn law as it is. I know they are hinky but they apparently like them. I think the technique is definitely redneck sander carving. At this point I have made so many and get a kick out of them I guess I’ll make some more probably a bomber or two next.

They look great.
What’s harder, the wood work or the painting…......................

Thank you sir. I tell ya redryder I have made five of them now and made each one with different tools but painted each one the same way so I guess for me the woodwork has been harder. Although that has a lot to do with my level of experience as well.
