2. Finishing my Tamiya Pershing in 35th scale. Today will be the AFV Club working tracks. Base color already applied (Tamiya Dark Green). Closing up the engine hatches and finishing the turret as well. 54 caliber 90mm gun and turret counterweight already scratchbuilt.
3. Starting a scratchbuilt (balsa wood) 1/700th scale fleet tanker, USS Enoree. Have to true the shape and buff out the sanding sealer. Gotta do that manually (no Dremel :-0) with sanding sticks. Then we'll put the base coat on (Polyscale Haze Gray).
4. USS Flasher sail (Revell 1/72nd scale). Being built straight out of the box for a Flasher vet (how fu**ing cool is that!?). She'll have two sail mounted 40mm guns and a single four incher forward. The vet is insistent (as am I...) that the overall color is chocolatey black. So that's what he's getting. He wants all the flood holes too...
5. ARII 1/800th scale USS Nimitz. Building her "as built" with no modern gear. She'll have six RAG birds from VF-84 and six from VF-41. The rest will be standard sixties and seventies birds (Vig, Scooter, Phantom, Crusader, Corsair II and Intruder). Minimal photo etch. Being built for the local war bird museum. Airwing will be extremely high visibility (Gull Gray upper, white lower).
