Grrrrrrrr.........and I'll promptly take one step BACKWARDS, just because I posted my progress....

 

Was putting on the final semi-gloss coat and managed to spill some of the clear from the cup onto the model! :smiley26: While it's not a disaster, it DID manage to leave a couple of runs across the bottom and wipe out 1/2 of the correguard leading edge on one part of the wing. SO.....I'll be doing some light sanding and repainting that section of correguard, as well as a bit of gull gray on the bottom.

 

Sigh......... :angry: Like Led Zep sings....."no-no-nobody's fault but mine"!

:D The P-3 is on her gear! Making progress.....Most of the antennae are in place, as well as the gear, tires, and glass. Model has been washed (with a pencil) and now the hard part is keeping the fingerprints to a minimum while finishing it up! :smiley20: Hope to have it completely done by my meeting Thursday evening. The only problem after that is how to transport it to the meeting.... :smiley3:

THAT is one nice ORION!!! Fantastic job, Gil.

 

You built an entire aircraft and I'm still wallowing on putting a new nose on a Voodoo. I applaud your persistance.

 

This gives me incentive to finish my build now.

Very nice Gil. I have my work cut out for me! (My P-6E that is). Best,
