Monogram PBY Catalina – Progress Report

Wednesday morning shot to get me all primed up and ready to go…

This is how I had left my workbench yesterday. I still have a long way to go…

I have to resist the temptation of glueing the wings to the fuselage. These photos will serve as a reminder not to it.

Working with a large model kit always poses handling problems so glueing those two assemblies will be done last.

Using my airbrush worked well on the PBY and the Hurricane so I feel all pumped up.

But still having a long way to go with the camouflage I can’t rush it.

Last night, after watching a YouTube video, I spent some time cleaning my airbrush thoroughly as I won’t be using it for a couple of days.

Watching more YouTube videos on keeping your airbrush clean can be quite stressful…

This is post 99 of a blog I thought about deleting when it was created.

One reader made me change my mind.

I don’t have that many readers but that besides the point of going forward with My Forgotten Hobby V which is about sharing how I sometimes struggle building model kits.

After viewing this YouTube video I know building Airfix Hawker Hurricane Mk. I will probably be testing my resilience a whole lot more than I first thought it would…

However it’s too late now to be reconsidering what I have already started last Friday…

To be continued…
