Chocs Away, Chaps
Made an Airspeed Horsa Mk 1 troop-landing glider for my airborne to land in. It's an Airfix 1/72 kit. I hadn't reaised what a huge aircraft this was. I had a mental image of something much smaller. I knew they could land quite heavy equipment, such as 17pdr anti-tank guns, but I hadn't followed through on my thinking.
I got my airbrush out for the first time in years and had to remind myself what all the bits did. I hummed and hawed about fitting Normandy stripes but decided in the end to leave it as a more generic paint finish. I can always spray some on later.
