Had it looking like this. Smoothed out. Masked and primed. It was looking promising. I stuck it on those Airfix stands for kicks. It tilted and a seam parted underneath. No problem. A quick fix. Once that was done I turned it over, and BINGO! Windscreen fogged. A, triple dipped in Future, Windscreen.

Decals on the windscreen it is. Still needs filler in certain areas. Pressing on.

This is the third primer pass. Keep finding imperfections, but I'm getting there. Swear the leading edges on those sponsons looked perfect before priming

This is what's giving me a headache. Trying to get that kink, and the blended area straightened out. Looking at references, I believe the tail maybe a bit short too. Not sure.

At least the seams on my side project are behaving.

Next to a Svezda, Oscar-II. Same scale. Another putty Queen so far. Insert size matters joke here. And a pun too.

That all for now. Silver paint soon....I hope.

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

  1. Build as many kits as you like

  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.
