When I delivered my Helldivers to the Museum this last weekend....

I thought my building was over and I could resume the B-25 and my Airfix "Sole Survivor".


As this Academy Avenger arrived at the museum it was unusable. Everything painted only in one color, all over bright blue with no markings and a broken canopy.
Back to Connecticut Monday night, out comes airbrush and paints, rooted through the decal stash for stars and bars, numbers from press-type and a spinning propeller. The pilot was left as is.

A correct Academy canopy is waiting for me Saturday morning, this is the stunt-double canopy from Airfix for the shoot.

This will be delivered this weekend and more work done on the carrier model itself. Maybe NOW I can resume my APTGB builds...

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature Airfix, Frog and Matchbox kits.

  1. Build as many kits as you like

  2. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  3. Any markings are acceptable.

  4. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
