Wink Teeny Belle

Starting Bruno's B-17F "Memphis Belle" in 1:300. Trying very hard to get a clean build this time. So far it is looking pretty good.

You sure like to build in small scale. How are the eyes holding out?

Holy crap that’s small. Where did you get those tweezers? I’ve been looking for a set like that but haven’t located any that come to that fine a point. That really does look like a clean build. Very nice.

Cheep Chinese they may be, but for modelling they are very, very good.


Nice clean build going on there Micheal ... bin there, done that and I feel your pain, but for a Bruno model this is one of the larger ones.
Hawkman67 recoloured Bruno's B-29 as the EB-29 mother ship, so I reduced his 1:200 Goblin to 1:300 to go with it.



As you can see, the skin on my fingers was already breaking up, and I never did build Mother Maybe one day I'll get back to them, but not for a while yet.

Go to Widget Supply and do a search for clamp tweezers.

1. John that Goblin is beautiful. In my plastic modeling life I built a 1:72 one.

2. Bruno must not have grandkids. I modded his design and added wing & stablizer wire spars. Gives them a few extra minutes when the grandkids get hold of 'em.
