Readers’ Gallery: Tom’s 1/48 Tamiya Buffalo

Forum member Tom (spitguy) posted these pics of his Tamiya Buffalo. Great work Tom!

Well, this is the longest project I have worked on so far – I think it took me about 4 months.  I really enjoyed this kit – I learned a great deal about the much maligned Buffalo.  I was disappointed in how the canopy turned out…I have been painting my canopies on the model recently and this time paint got under the mask, the painted framing fell off, and I got white glue under the canopy (used too much trying to make sure the spray would not leak through any gaps).  I think I am going back to painting the canopy off the model.  Thanks for looking and enjoy.

P.S. – I also hope you enjoy my super absorbent photo matting!
