Infinity Models SB2C up


Recommended Posts

For better or worse I'm getting started on this kit. It has been on my shelf for a good while and now I think it's time to get with the program. The only add-on I bought for it is the PE dive flaps and they look to be a real bear. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it. Meanwhile I'll get started on the fuselage, etc. I intend to do a overall GSB a/c but exactly which one is undetermined right now. Shouldn't be a problem though.

As is my usual procedure I painted all the interior parts prior to starting assembly. Still have others to paint (black, etc) but I have most all of the Interior Green done.

The preliminaries should be easy peasy. We'll see how the rest goes! :)

You don't see many of these getting built so it'll be nice to see one given your special touch.

Thanks Carl. I have high hopes for this build. 😉

Looking forward to this one, you will have lots of fun getting this one together. I'm about to close up the fuselage halves on mine but had to put it to one side as I got pretty burnt out with it

You've done a nice job so far Andy. The cockpit, etc look great! We'll see how mine goes but I do anticipate a bit of a cuss factor (or factors!) as I go along. Have you done anything with the flaps? I assume you will be using the PE ones. Something I don't look forward to! LOL :)

Thank you John, you will find most internal structures are to wide and need sanding to fit. I have the PE flaps but sold the wing fold set as itbreally is a step too far to fit.

Thanks for the info. I had considered getting the rear gunners set but haven't done anything toward that as of yet. Still considering it though.

I'm about to start on the instrument panel. I'm not too sure about the kit decals so, as a backup, I have some AirScale one's I can use. It seems to me the approach they took on the panels is assbackwards. Why mold the panels in clear when you have to paint the fronts?

I have the rear gunners set John and can say it's definitely worth while getting and will add quite a bit to the look. 

The rear gun position is a bit short on detail as well

This and the SH Whirlwind are rare holy grail builds……….

I have the Whirlwind in my stash. I'll get around to building it one of these days. :)
