    Shes Done !!!!

    Finally have her finished suppose to have her done last night but I had a honey Do list to do, got to make mamma happy. I spent most of the day getting her done. In conclussion this kit was a pleasurec to build and i would not recemend this for the novice, You must have scratch building experience to over come the fit problems. I went ahead and took this kit to my printer and i have 20 such examples to build all white with the black out line so I can airbrush them to any color I need .

    Finished up the touch up with the airbrush painted the engine all gun metal with silver dry brushed to high light the cylinder heads. Beaching Gear has all ready been made. I drilled a hole in the bottom of the fuselodge plane, to except a mouting stand as pictured here on the attachments. The Sunderland has always been one of my favorite flying boats I use to have an old plastic kit of one of these forget who made it but it was an impressive kit I lost it some where I amagine it will show up some where. If anyone who is enterested in building one of these from Lad and Dads you get stumped I can help you out not a hard kit to build very enjoyable to build.

    I would like to thank every one here on this forum for all of your candid replys to my Sunderland I am greatfull you fellas are a great bunch of fellows, I know your anxious to see the finished results I will submitt them here are the attachments,
