Some of you know me from FB which I no longer spend time at. Moved over here. I have been working on Keith Sterner's Breda 88. Here's some pictures of where she's at in the build so far. Lots to do still but getting there.

Sad to see you leave from the FAC group. The Breda looks fantastic, really nice finish and props. Looking forward to details and seeing it fly!

Not too sad answering all the questions about my movie work was taking a lot of my time better spent here with my model plane building. Not that the FAC page did that but my profile page was getting out of hand and just too much drama.

But thank you very much for the kind words.

The nice thing about this group of fine folks is the only thing that really interests them is..."Airplanes!!". Wink

Started the paper thin canopy. I mean this thing is ultra light for a reason. So there was no way to mask it easily and paint it. The solution? I used trim tape for RC model airplanes, stuck it to some clean styrene and painted it. Removed it and applied it to the canopy. I've never done it before but the results are good and it had relief too.

Next scoops, exhaust, dummy engines and those machine guns. I will sculpt up some pilots too.

Beautiful work Steve.  Is the tissue done with an airbrush?

Cheers,

Steve
Until seeing your model I was totally ignorant of the Breda88, stunning looking aeroplane. I think that the designers should have used elliptical wings... then there wouldn't be a straight line anywhere!

Steve I never knew of the plane either. I wanted to build a twin and not another P-38 so many wee building them and then Keith Sterner came along and showed me his kit. I was sold. Wink

Got the pinners on and painted and yesterday I started adding self printed slide on decals I found to be problematic at best but I managed and painted markings with masks where I could. I'll post those pcs tonight once I finish.

Still all those things like machine guns, pilots and scoops to go.

Hello

Very nice indeed ... any details on the covering and finish.  I guess you airbrushed it?

Really nice!

Hmmmmm....... just caught up with this and a bit of a gem, I do declare!  So I suspect you have done a bit of this before then?  Thanks for the pictures of the “bones” particularly - always find them so interesting and they do show the delicacy of the workmanship.

Thank you both very much. Yes she is delicate but once covered pretty strong.

I used Silkspan lite and bit more robust than Esaki tissue and a goes on wet a bit easier.

Airbrushed her with Model Masters Acrylics Tan and RLM. Markings came on the CD with the kit from Keith Sterner. I printed them on water slide paper decals and some of it masked and airbrushed.

It's true I have been modeling for a very long time. Professionally in the movie industry and scratch building, kit making from sail boats to submaines.
