Will you need an extension to finish this one?

Yes, I do! In the second half of January, my mojo left me a bit...
If I had kept my pace from the first half, it would´ve be been completed by now :???:

If I hurry up, I could finish this one on Sunday! Now just some masking of canopy, and off we go to the paint shop!

And I thought, I could fool you, damn!
I could finish the Scooter tonight, but then the finish would look too sloppy, in my eyes.
Although it´s only a krap kit, I don´t want to make it look too krappy.
At least the drop tanks will make it over the finish line of the GB, photographic proof to follow soon :lol:

At least drop tanks are finished:

Couldn´t we do a "Drop tank GB", so sllloooww modellers like me, get a chance to finish their work on time :ha: ?

I don´t follow Airfix paint plan, I found several pics of A4D-1 of VA-34 with BLUE markings on tanks, rudder, behind canopy... it makes sense, cause VA-34 were called The Blue Blasters ( I don´t have any literature bout the Scooter,
I found all the info in the net).
White underside is drying right now:

A close call, but still a DNF: I´ll move the build to workbench.
Some touch ups on the top sides needed, because of overspray, and lifting off of colour by masking tape, and Maskol, too :sad:

I´ll NOT put the Scooter onto the doom shelf! I´ll finish it in this month - I have less time for modelling from now on for a while,
too much "real" life goin on...

Glad you're going to finish it. Better to take your time than rush it too much.

I opened my own workbench posting now for the Scooter (and all the other DNFs from the doomed shelf ;-) ),
no problem for me, if this GB gets locked up now.
