CAC 13 Boomerang "Home James"

Postby cgerard440 » Wed Jan 17, 2018 4:33 am

Hi all,

here are a few pics of a build I finished during the Christmas break. It is the Special Hobby kit in 1/48 scale. The kit is rather typical Special Hobby, an interesting subject but definitely short run. I
build it from the box as the well-known 'Home James'. Following discussions here, I choose to represent the lighter colored panel on the right side as plywood, the wood grain done with oil paints.

The kit was riveted and the engine cowling was widened by about 2mm by adding a styrene strip, otherwise the resin engine does not fit.
The paints are Gunze acrylics, I used H 302 for Foliage Green, H 317 for Sky blue, and a custom mix for Earth brown. The weathering is done
with Mig Ammo washes and thinned airbrushed coats of acrylic inks on the panel lines. I tried also to reproduce the paint burned by the exhaust gases with coats of very thin paint.

I hope you will like it,

best,

Christian.

Really nice result, I followed your reasoning on the other thread, and agree with your interpretations, certainly matches the weathering on this bird

Very nice rendition,

I hear you about the kit, it takes some wrangling but gives a great result.
