In the last five monthes with launching a new business it's been hard to find time to build and none to launch. I did manage to get three built. One is the zooch soyuz which is awesome to build. I did a Canuck version of the red river stratos along with excelsior decals :) The semroc defender looked to me like a SAM so I tried to create that effect with the paint scheme :)
Cheers

Nice Job! The Soyuz looks very nice.

What paint did you use on the stratos?

Actually it's Canadian tire krylon paint. Nothing fancy at all :) Thanks for the kind words :)
Cheers

You've got some pretty birds there, Fred. The Soyuz, in particular, turned out real nice. I just got one from the good Doctor and can't wait to get started on it.

Nice group of birds, the Stratos in particular looks superb. Do your fingerprints smudge up the paint job?

Man I just wish my workspace was as organized as yours.... :eek:

Thanks guys:) I'll assume you're joking about how organised my workplace is Mikus :) I just roll up a bit of newsaper and shove it in the tail pipe then paint away. I clamp the roll in a work bench to dry so I never touch it. The hard part for me is using light coats. I just love to lather it on :)
Cheers
Fred
