Finished this up last year:

Kit: 1/72 Antares
Unit: USS Iowa, 1945
Paints: GSB = Model Master FS 15042
Insignia White = Model Master FS 17875

There's a nice photo of this aircraft in an old Wings magazine (Vol 15, no 1).

Not a difficult build. Hardest part was getting things aligned, especially the main float. The cockpit is too shallow so I painted the lower areas flat black as you really can see it with all the canopy frames. Worked for me.

To post an image of your models, you will first need to find somewhere to host your photos on the Internet. Your ISP will often give you a limited amount of free web storage, and other online photo storage is also available.

To post a link or an image, simply type in the URL (web address) of the destination page or image. The URL will appear as a link (for an HTML link) or an image (if you link direct to a .jpg file) when posted. You can use the Preview facility to see how your message looks before posting to Plastic Pix.

Please try to keep image sizes to 800 pixels wide or less, as larger sizes will be too big to fit on many computer screens. Also, file sizes should be kept to around 100kb or less, otherwise download may be very slow.
