Hi Gent's this another build I've been working on for some time I've taken a 1960s toy and coverted it to a FEDEX cargo plane,I have installed all the lights nav/strob landing and anti-collision,and rotating becons, all are timed to the real thing. I removed all the panel lines and rescribed new ones and made all the glass. I wanted to keep it a toy on the most part. you can see what I started with and and it's present configuration. enjoy Glenn

Wow - that's a pretty big "toy". Nice job :hail: - any reason behind choosing this particular paint scheme (FedEx)?

Thank you 777,color scheme I guess, I like the brightness of the colors out of all the cargo carryiers FEDEX has the bolder colors. DHL and UPS not so bold. Glenn

Actually, I meant like a pin wash sort of thing on the flaps, rudder, etc. ;)

Working on it since '07? :eek: Dang---makes me feel like a modeling machine! :D

Oh, and it's not Richard, it's George. :p REL is Richard, Neb is George...

of course, I wouldn't mind having some of REL's skills.... guffaw

Thanks B, I have two of these things, and I'm not sure I want to do the other one, all the painting has to be done by line of sight, there's not one even or true part on this bird LOL, but It's coming along, once I get the wings and under belly painted I can start on the markings here is todays progress enjoy Regards Glenn
