Flying Banana
« on: April 03, 2022, 02:56:02 PM »
Started this while waiting for paint and glue to dry on the other models in progress.
This is one of the original flying bananas produced by Piasecki  - a company eventually swallowed up by Boeing.
This is a new kit by LF Models. Very little flash so should not be too onerous to out together.

Cockpit assembly almost complete. A complicated structure.

The walls would have to be very thick though.
Do they do straightjackets in your size?
