1/48 Testors Gee Bee Racer

Hi. This is the Testors 1/48 Gee Bee racer kit. This airplane was used at the air races in the 1930's.  Both sides of the fuselage fit Ok, but you'll have some problems putting wings and fuselage together. You'll have to use a lot, lot of putty and lot of sanding also.  I added styrene plastic card behind the engine and added some copper wire on engine.

I painted the model with Model Master and Testors paints.  White is Classic White from Model Master and Red from Testors.  I used the kit's decals and they are really good quality.  

I weathered the model with burnt sienna and a bit of black acrylic paints. Next I added a final coat of Metalizer sealer.  

Thanks for watching and have a nice day!

Franz
