All,

I painted some more interior and the beaching dolly to look like wood...I think. I am not entirely pleased with the outcome, but it is better in person.





I still have to wash and dry brush a bit and paint a few more details, but the bottom wing goes on next and then the fuselage gets covered and the interior will be hardly seen.

After this, I'll fill seams and paint the hull white in preparation for the cool white/red pattern.

Thanks for looking.

I remember scraping the varnish off a clinker rowing boat when I was a teenager - exactly that colour!

The wood painting looks very good in this scale, Dan. Once the washes are laid it, it'll look even better. Nothing to complain about here!

That wood colour looks perfect

And IMHO it doesn't need washes - that might loosen the tape - but I guess that's why we have Future...

Great progress Dan, you are having tons of fun

Felixstowe out of the stash - following your excellent build with great interest Dan - well done so far.

I did some more detail painting tonight and am trying to get the bottom wing on as well. I'll post a picture pretty soon.

This is a great GB...pobably because it has attracted the same crazies that lurk around the AFGB posts. GREAT!

Cheers and thanks to you all for your support and time.

I am sure your model will be outstanding, considering the amount of time you are investing!

My example was built straight OOB, and is not nearly as detailed as yours, even at this early stage.
Keep it up!

That is super sweet. If mine gets close to that, I'll be pleased.

Do tell me that the top wing goes on pretty well???

THANKS for posting.
