    Aftermarket, Resin wheels, Thanks to Vic!

    This one was fraught with disaster. Lost parts, heavy things falling on it, bad paint. But I was determined to have a 2/St.G 2 "Scotty dog" in my collection of Stukas.
    Many thanks to all for information, encouragement, and a big thanks to Mr. Balshaw for the fine resin wheels.
    Here it is.

    Goodness sakes, I am honored. I thank all of you for the nice comments.
    This was a lipstick on a pig, for me. From the fact that it had been hit by a falling shelf, to the incredibly bad paint, this one has been a study in aggravation.
    I lost the P.E. parts to the mass balancer for one of the stabilizers. I scratched a replacement from styrene in two parts.
    Matched it up pretty good, if I do say so myself.
    Brings us to the paint job. I washed the model as I always have before construction. I gave it a primer, sprayed the base color, and it was wrong. Wrong color all over the place. But I carried on with the second color, that was also wrong.
    I am not someone that will be discouraged by being wrong,
    So I did the foolish thing and proceeded in my own pig-headed way.
    Thank goodness for several folks that steered me in the right direction.
    So, the up-shot is a Wash over. Mud and slush.
    Eh, there it is.

    Odd...the post I made from camp singing high praises with plenty of ooohs and aaahs didn't take. Anyhoo, a lesser man, such as this poster, would have quit. You made a great come-back, Paul. A very large well-done.
