Surely;
I love to do repaints and helps me to get back into the swing of things again. it has got me off my butt, so to speak and finish up the addons for the SB-17 I have had floating around for ages. I have the Boat bout half way done, and have the radome, Cheyenne tail turret and better bombbay doors.

Hi All;
Here is the latest on the HUP-2, a before, and after. Please check it out and let me know how it looks so far. I just need to refine the rotor heads and add step plates here and there.

Man you're good! I wish I had your talents. I can use photoshop, but repainting is just a wee bit too much for my skills ulless its super simple.

Thanks,
But I must confess, My skills are not that great. Most of the ones I do are pretty simple repaints. LOL This one is actually a fairly easy repaint, I had back surgury a few years ago, and was stuck for most of that summer, so I worked on learning to use phtotshop, but am still learning it. It is all just the details,
the HUP-2 is done by the way for those that are wondering. I have started building it to make sure every thing lines up and then will send it in with some other I have repainted. pictures this afternoon.

Welp;
I am going to have to clean up the model page before I can submit it so it will be a bit longer if all goes well this weekend.

Well;
Looks like I am not submitting this one. Chip told me when I sent in the corsairs, tbm, and the hup-2 that The B&W's used were really too old to use. NO Dis on Chip at all, just kind of a bummer is all.
