When I delivered my Helldivers to the Museum this last weekend....
I thought my building was over and I could resume the B-25 and my Airfix "Sole Survivor".
As this Academy Avenger arrived at the museum it was unusable. Everything painted only in one color, all over bright blue with no markings and a broken canopy.
Back to Connecticut Monday night, out comes airbrush and paints, rooted through the decal stash for stars and bars, numbers from press-type and a spinning propeller. The pilot was left as is.
A correct Academy canopy is waiting for me Saturday morning, this is the stunt-double canopy from Airfix for the shoot.
This will be delivered this weekend and more work done on the carrier model itself. Maybe NOW I can resume my APTGB builds...
Youth, talent, hard work, and enthusiasm are no match for old age and treachery.
