Default 1:48 Testors O-2 Skymaster

Hey all,

Just finished the 1:48 Testors O-2 Skymaster yesturday. It's a pain of a kit in some places. Course it didn't help that I made some mistakes as well. I added Milliput to the rear cabin, not thinking that it would add weight to the back. So now it's a tailsitter and the back landing gear legs are straining to hold it up. Oh well. My bad. Here's the pics.

Thanks Stephen. Yeah Bat 21 is the reason I really like this plane. Got to see it flying around last year at the Randolph AFB Airshow.

It wasn't tough to work on due to it's size. It's because it's an old kit and not the best fitting one.

I've often wondered how that kit would look like and now I know! Great job!!! How's the interior detail? It couldn't be any worse than Testors' OV-10A Bronco? Interior or not, your finish looks great!!

Thanks Sting.

There's about the same. Four seats, a decal for the instrument panel and two control columns. Wish I was better at scratch building. Maybe I'll do this when I'm muc better at it.
