Ford Tri-Motor, Revell kit in 1/77trimotorbox

Built 12/05/05 to 12/26/05

Build Notes:

This was a basic out of the box build with a bit of a twist. I gave myself a Modeler's challenge on this re-issue of an older kit, and that was basicly No Putty allowed, only glue, sanding and a lot of test fitting.

The Model is painted with overall Model Master Non-buffing Aluminum Metalizer and Gloss Black.

The Decals were set with Solveset and came out very well.

I used Micro-sol masking film on the windows and that reacted a bit with the laquer based metalizer, making it hard to get off the clear parts.

I also did a future coat over the model to keep the metalizer from rubbing off and that gave a bit of an odd sheen to the plane.
