One Customer’s Results

I always like receiving images of  customer’s project who used our products. Like these sent in by Patrick from Leavenworth, Washington. Two beautiful Boeing bombers…B-17 Flying Fortress and the B-52D Stratofortress.

Both were done with the aluminum, aluminum buffed, aluminum buffed with the powder, and a few panels with the sealer, to get the different panel tones.

My unbuilts for SnJ use in the next few years include: B-29, B-17B, B-17C, B-377 Stratocruiser, B-314 Clipper, Aero Union P-3 airtanker engine nacelles, P-51C and those are just the ones off the top of my head. Not sure I will ever get “done” but that makes it fun. — Pat

As he stated both were painted using Spray Metal Aluminum, which for those who don’t know is an enamel based ready to use natural metal finish paint that is applied with an airbrush. It can be tinted using other enamels to create various tonal effects on the different panels. It can also be shined up by polishing it with or without our line of metal Polishing Powders.

Thanks Patrick for sharing these two beautifully models of  outstanding icons of America’s aviation and Air Force history! Revell/Monogram should use that B-52 for their box cover!

  1. Pat,
    These two models are obviously top rate. I’d like to know if you have a web site with more pictures of these and/or other models. I’d like to know more about which colors are on which panels and how you applied the paint to get such a great finish.
    Just curious as to what part of the country you live, and if you belong to any clubs…

  2. As the piece said, he lives in Washington state. Leavenworth to be specific. He also said what colors he used…aluminum. Polishing some, polishing some of the panels using the powders and leaving others just bare paint.
