I decided to stay true to the era of this kit and brush painted it even the future coat before the decals. The only real modification I did was I re shaped the spinners with some green putty since they were too short and too blunt. I did spray it with a semi gloss coat afterwards. Yellow tips on the prop blades are hand painted with no masking. I guess my hand was pretty steady that day

Well, that makes 3 Tradewinds so far for the year: Yours, Bill Dyes, and Rato Marczak's.

Very advanced technologies, very odd looking aeroplane.

WHO will be next??

Cheers,

Nice job Mike. I keep hoping for a larger scale kit to be tooled someday.
