Another interesting subject. Looks like another filler pit!
Your stash must be a sight for sore eyes. You’re coming out with some unusual kits.

It is an older kit so a tube of filler and some sanding sticks will be required if built.....I do have a large stash built over the years, (as we all do) - SWMBO isn't quite so kind about though - the adjectives used are colourful at times... :laughing-rolling:

The sprayed the Tamiya gloss black paint

Then worked on more of the attachments - scratch built an early A-bomb from left over bits from the P-80 Shooting Star kit.

ImageImageImage
Sprayed the chrome paint and lightly weathered it - now in the home stretch...

Great diorama potential if you’re feeling adventurous though.

Another winner, Morris. You are getting through the stash very quickly!
Partwork Building is like meeting enemy action - no plan survives first contact!!
