Stay'n Alive


#1 ready!


#2 ready!


The die cast plane had a lot of rivet holes underneath that needed patching.


Worked out okay.

They look SO good with the decals. I may have to try something like this with a few Disney planes.

Thank you reston, I am surprised how well they turned out. They do need some hole filling on the underside. There is a "cape" on the canopy that has to be removed. There is a smile under the engine that I trimmed down and sort of painted around to minimize it, I kept it rather than fill it in, and consider it to be an air vent.

You could also add a few stubby bits of sprue to the smile and call it a gunport. Though I suppose it doesn't really clear the prop.

Yes, but machine guns can shoot between the blades, since about 1916.
