Introduction

 

It becomes time, that I also present once a civilian airplane from my racer collection! Rare Bear, Dreadnouth and Supermarine S6B will be followed!

 



Roscoe Turner's "Red Lion", Weddel Williams from Williams Models in 1:32 The fun started with the "old" kit of Williams model. Nearly 30 years old but good in overall shape with very clearly designed instruction sheet.

I partially rescribed the model and made a vacform canopy.

I thinned all trailing edges and separated all control surfaces.

The navigation lights are from CMK (fuselage) or made of clear plastic (flush on wingtips).

 

 


 

Painting and Markings

 

Most of the effort went into the paintwork.

First I sprayed a medium grey basecoat for the cream (H130 with a bit of brown). After mixing and spraying the red paint close to the red colour on the decal sheet I applied the thin black lines between beige and red from decal stripes. This was a very good test for my patience and eyes:-)!!!

 



The proposal from Williams to manage the rigging from flat synthetic material is a fine idea, however I used the etching sheet from Tamiya for the Swordfish instead.

Although it was an expensive solution, I think it was worthwhile.
