Default 'Morale Support' 1/6th WWII Pin-up Wings No 1

Whatho people!
Got this back in July 2019 and have been having the ocassional bit of tinkering but now getting in to it.
Sculpted by Roberto Von Behr, cast by Randy VanDyke.

This is how she looks when painted by someone who knows what they are doing.

How it will look once i'm done with her remains to be seen.
So to the 'What's in the box' bit. A lot of resin is what!
Crisply cast figure and detail parts.

Paint pots, brush, arms and detail parts-a-plenty.

Nicely done USAAF Officers crush cap.

Main bulk of the very nice body and sperate leg.

USAAF and rank insignia very crisply done.

The sharply sculpted head with some seriously lucious locks.
Methinks i'll be opting for a green eyed red head, with subtle freckles of course.

The two sides of the step ladder and the base that it all sitts on.

The biggest lump by far, the B-17 nose section.

It's no tiddler...

And the serial number stencil decal rounds the pile off.

So to business and the first area to be tackled was the nose section.
Several rivets were AWOL so me being me, I needed to put them back. Some dressmaking pins to the rescue here.
Holes drilled, pins hammered through, a drop of thin ZAP CA and the sharp end chopped off.

So that done, time to turn my attention to the back side as it were. The rear edges were not that cleanly cast but no big deal.

Some quick curing epoxy putty was slapped on, then the whole thing turned face up and pushed down on to a piece of cling film/Saran wrap
or whatever name clear food wrapping film goes by in your neck of the woods. This flattened things out just nicely so I can bung a piece of 2mm styrene sheet on to tidy the look up a bit.

Also a brass tube inserted, glued and pinned so it hase something to stand up on.

The aforementioned styrene sheet got cut and glued on.

Now going for the raw metal look here so in with the gloss black.

Then after letting it sort itself out overnight, Alclad time.
Masked up the some airbrush waving, chrome with a dash of aluminium mixed in.

Some dark wash around the rivet heads, cleaned up.

A decent coat of Alcad aqua gloss got airbrushed on to seal the wash.
Now I had the supplied decal but a few more were needed so I go to it and made up some bombing run markings and a little bit of nose art.
Printed on clear and white decal sheet respectively and much fun was had.

These will get left alone and then a final coat of Alclad aqua gloss.
More to come...
