George Coote

About two years ago I found a decal sheet by Daco of the F16 40th anniversary 'Tiger Falcon'. Having built a collection of WWII aircraft in 1/48, my favourite scale, I was getting bored with camouflage. This started me off on colourful subjects, leading more recently to Reno Racers using Cutting Edge, Leading Edge & Airway Graphics, decals a very pretty theme has kept me busy.

After Revell's P51, 'Miss America' I decided to have a go at converting an Eduard Yak-3 into a Super Yak as seen flying in 1988. Raiding the spares box for cowlings I found Monogram's A26 which I fared into the fuselage with Milliput and turned up a spinner with Milliput, which is something like a DC-7 spinner as used on the real aircraft. See the photo for the end result.

I had an old built (c: 1980's) Hasegawa Corsair F4U-4 in the loft, which by today's standards, is a bit crummy. Just right for converting rather than cut about a brand new kit. Again, using Milliput and plasticard, lots of cutting and rubbing down. Using a P51 spinner and the other A26 cowling, I managed to turn out a presentable job. Lack of decals is a problem.

As well as being a superb modeller, George is our resident cartoonist.
