I've always had a deep interest in the aircraft of ww2; allied axis, all of it. i'm moving into a place that won't facilitate guitar building so I'm thinking of transferring that interest to aircraft model building. It's got the research and history, attention to detail and painting/finishing component so it feels right, but I don't know A Thing about it. Did some hot rod models when I was like 10. I don't know much.. So how 'bout it, any bass/guitar builders turned model builders? Would love to thread about what you know and love. The notion of reliciing/weathering is so interesting to me considering what I've learned about aging guitars over the past years. Worked with Bill Nash for a couple years and got the bug of softening the edges so to speak. I want to start with a Ju 87 or 88. The German machines are just so badass I figure it's a good place to start, but i would love to do a B-17, a Corsair or Hellcat, Mitsubishi and others. I'll put my chips on the table with this one: http://www.amazon.com/Revell-Germany-Junkers-Buster-Plastic/dp/B0032ALYMI/ref=sr_1_1?s=toys-and-games&ie=UTF8&qid=1381652388&sr=1-1&keywords=junkers+ju+87 Or do I go with a $50 Hasagawa kind of thing? What do you think? 48? 72?
