Hello again all modelers!

I will enter this competition with Tamiyas A-1H Skyraider US Navy used in Vietnam.

I will do a funny twist with the "toiletbomb".


If I can manage to scratch build a "customer" for the toilet before it will be loaded to the Skyraider i will try to make a funny scene.

Else a "toilet bomb" could be a funny piece as it is.....;-)


I start with pictures of the new kit:

Boxart


Bagged sprues


More


Decals



Some pics of the sprues



Bland engine....but not much will be seen after assembly



Some bombs and fueltanks


Excellent clear parts


Bulky fusalage




Pilot figure, I will paint the pilot and see how he looks and then see if he will
be used...


And "the" bomb ;-)





All for now....

I'm so pleased to see someone do the Bog Dropper [smile]

I wonder where it landed in real life ?

On a bamboo outdoor toilet with bamboo splintering everywhere, with a lucky "Evacuee"
trying to make "haste" with his pants flailing round his knees and a low flying Sky Raider ? [smile]

The Sky raider has a beefy, mean looking air frame. The toilet bomb is great!

Alright, time for an update on my toiletbomb build!

I have been working away from home so there was not enough time for my build but there have been some progress.

As usuall first thing to get glued is the cockpit.

I think i will paint the pilot and see how it looks.


For this build i will keep the cockpit stock with no aftermarket so i think the pilot will be in.

I bought a new tool for this build.


The Alec scraper, a fantastic tool to fix seems and moldlines, it did an fast and good job on the pilot. See before and after pic.

After mold seemline gone in just a few strokes.

Somehow my pics of the cockpit got lost, this is the two pics i have left.




I use the decal for the bezels, looks horrible on the pic cos i just put on micro sol and set. It did turn out nice. Rest of the cockpit i painted black and drybrushed and made a sludge wash of light gray.

On to the engine, also stock but i did put in some lead wire as ignitioncords.
After painting,drybrush and a wash it looked ok.
After installation much wont be seen of it anyway...



I have a plan for the droptanks, they are molded with engraved panellines but it should actually be raised weld lines on it.

http://tailspintopics.blogspot.se/2011/07/douglas-low-drag-external-fuel-tanks.html

So first i glued them as per instruction.


And then add the raised weldlines with streched sprue

And after painting and a wash they turned out like this.






Im pleased with the result :-)

Thats it for today. 

Happy building!

I have seen pics of the toilet bomb Spad, but never knew the story behind it. This will be a fitting tribute. I look forward to watching this one come together.

I got my bird in the paintbox.

I started with the gullgray but something weird happened with my gunze paint. It didn't like my thinning or it didn't like the primer (tamiya). It kind of pooled up and looked almost like a bad weathering attempt.

But after it dried all was ok. I guess i thinned it to much, the old eye isn't that precis any more ;-)





After one hour:





I started the bomb rack for the special bomb, and it was a quick job so i finished it in one seating :-)



Toilet painted and test fitted in the newly painted rack..


That's all for now, thanks for watching!
