Kingfisher hits the shelf

The Kingfisher is done!  I’ve been working on this build since March 15th and it is nice to see how well it turned out.  I built one of these as a kid (I built ALL of the Monogram 1/4″ kits in my youth) so this  was fun.  I actually still have another bagged one to donate to some kid in the future.

I used the Lone Star Cockpit for this build and it was a pretty good fit.  Lots of additional plastic butchering needed to be done to use it but the results were worthy.

I additional I learned ;

  • using clear resin to model water
  • more brass soldering (the boarding ramp structure was soldered together – had a really hard time until I used guide wire to hold it all together)
  • don’t drop an open bottle of Steel Model Master paint on your shoes

Here are some shots

Now on to completing the Bf-110s.
