Finally- the finished item, portrayed here in a mashup on an original photograph. Unlike this photo, the replica has a rudder & trim tab. Also, as I put this item together, it was eerie how the crewman in the foreground took on a rather ghostly appearance!
It will be on display at the Warbirds over the Beach event, 17-19 May, 2019. Come have a look!
OK, here are some progress pix for you. First coat of RLM76 is on the vertical stab, rudder, and trim tab, and it's got a convincing shape. Item is pretty BIG! You'd better have a big wall to fit this one! This piece will be on display at the Warbirds over the Beach show, in Pungo, in May. Hope to see you there!
