LS Babs is a quick and easy build with the only challenge being masking the multi-framed canopy. As can be seen with the assembly plans below, nothing needs to be added to the cockpit as the small individual openings and canopy framing would make this a somewhat waisted exercise.

The model went together very well, with just the starboard wing root requiring some real attention.

Once the model was primed, as search for a exterior finish was done with Google. A real find was this photo below. It appears to have the red fuselage flash that was perhaps carried by the 16th Independent Chutai in China. However, a arrowhead has been added to the cowling and forward fuselage. It appears that the blackish cowling has not been camouflaged like the rest of the upper surface.

Thanks for dropping by.

Cheers, Vic

...Someone decides to take a kit that's been collecting dust and build it for its original intended purpose:

Fun...

...And, in the longrun, does a stellar job at it.

To top it off, the collectors value jumps a bit because there's one less kit collecting dust, everybody wins!

Can it get any better than that?

(Yes, but not by much)

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.
