ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT HOBBY BOSS 1/48

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS BOX PACKAGE Hobby boss Antonov AN-2 military aircraft type kit. It is a biplane developed in 1947 by the former Soviet Union. It is classified as a small transport aircraft. Someday I wanted to make Hasegawa’s zero type water observation aircraft and Tamiya’s swordfish so I picked up this biplane as my practice, it is a heavy volume kit so that it cannot be completed with a light feeling. This Antonov biplane, Japanese has written in the package, maybe the Japanese market is also a target. I wonder it is too minor to sell in Japan.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS MAKING First of all, the number of parts is very large. The cockpit is a double seat and two people sit in parallel. I’m still assembling it, but there are still plenty of parts.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS MAKING Is it a transport plane? There are two rows of simple chairs.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS MAKINGThe inside is also slightly molded.

The virus infected 20 people again in Tokyo. When human activities become active, the number of infected people increases. As for the cat vaccination, I should go in April, but I haven’t been to the veterinarian yet because I have to refrain from going out, but I think I should go tomorrow. I’ll have some cake at the cafe on the open terrace on the way home.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS MAKING I don’t feel like painting yet, so I’m working on a lot of large parts and assembling them.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS MAKING It may not be cloth hanging like the old biplane, but the mold of the main wing is fine. It’s like a galvanized sheet iron roof with bending to increase its strength.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS MAKINGI’m assembling various parts of the biplane.

There is a huge riot in the United States. I think a demonstration march would be fine, looting stores and setting fire to cars is excessive. The video of holding a big LCD TV in both hands is always playing. This time, the number of people whose lives are unstable due to the virus is increasing, so it’s dangerous. Maybe some country is instigating it.

There are partial decals in the cockpit, so just putting them on makes it more precise.

The hobby boss’s manual doesn’t have detailed instructions for painting. I painted the fire extinguisher red. Is it only Japan that is red? Come to think of it, there are many kinds of fire extinguishers in our housing complex such as white and green. I don’t know if it depends on the year or the uses.

Even if I paint inside, I can hardly see through the round window. However, I kept the cockpit and passenger doors open, you can see inside of this airplane because the canopy is big. The inside of the plane is also painted.

The number of people infected with the virus in Tokyo is increasing again. Even if the “Tokyo alert” is activated, only the Rainbow Bridge is lit up in red. I am getting tired of self-control, but I have hay fever and my respiratory system is weak, so I am afraid of the virus. I feel sorry for the students who can’t study after the outbreak of infection caused by snacks, clubs, and cabarets.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS MAKING The cockpit fitted smoothly to the plane. As it is a general-purpose airplane, its body is quite thick.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS PAINTING I wanted a little more detail on the seat, so I added a seat belt. I didn’t have enough leftover parts before, so I copied it with silicone clay and it didn’t work well. I can’t get rid of the burr well. When I checked the actual airplane, it might only have a belt to fix the hip, but I added a belt to tighten it from the shoulders.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS PAINTING I painted the engine. I was surprised that Antonov AN -2 could fly such a big airplane with such a small engine.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS MAKINGAfter I roughly put them together, it becomes quite large. Especially the width. After this, I still need to attach quite fine parts, so I think I will clean the adhesive marks a little.

There was a bowgun murder incident in Japan where 100% of gun control is applied. It’s professional that the criminal hit every target’s head. But where can I buy a bowgun? It’s dangerous. I don’t need it until Walker starts walking outside.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS PAINTING Antonov AN-2 has a large canopy and has many windows. Masking also takes time. In addition, it is divided into right and left sides, so it is better to mask part of it after attaching it to the body.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS PAINTING There are some round windows in the passenger compartment, maybe because it is for passenger aircraft. I used a masking sol because tape can’t mask well.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS MAKING The wingtip lights and other fine clear parts are all glued to the fuselage and being masked with sols before painting. I think it’s easier to recover masking and correcting the paint than after all the clear parts attached to the fine painted surface.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS MAKING It is just before the whole painting. There are a lot of parts in the upper and lower of the fuselage, and they are quite big, so it’s hard to keep them displayed. Now all I have to do is to attach propeller and wheels.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS PAINTINGSince the color of the Antonov AN-2 is only dark green and light blue, I tried to color it in black and white in advance.

I first painted the underside of the fuselage with light blue and then used masking tape. I thought it was a waste to use a large amount of masking tape, but I used a lot of tape without worrying about it.

A body was blown in dark green. This color is sometimes used in Russian tanks. When I opened the lid of the bottle, it was almost gone, so I hurriedly bought another bottle.

The number of decals is small, it is almost complete.

I was thinking simply that it was completed, but the left wheel was broken probably due to the effect of the washing of the aircraft. I’m reattaching the metal wire.

There is no description at all in the assembly manual of the Hobby Boss, but the tension of the biplane seems to be there. Since there was nothing to be used as a base, I had no choice but to pick up some of the leftover ring-shaped parts from the ship model photo-etched parts and reuse them. A ring is probably a part of a lifebuoy. To be honest, it is troublesome to work on the tension wire.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORK ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORK Antonov AN -2 has been completed. Even though it was developed in 1947, the design of a biplane with a single reciprocating engine seems old-fashioned. However, the maintenance of the aircraft is simple and it can take off and land even on an unmaintained runway.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORK ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORK This time it was made as a Soviet aircraft. There was a war cartoon by Mr. Motofumi Kobayashi that title “Second Korean War”, I was impressed by a scene in which North Korean commandos were flying an airplane that looked like Antonov AN-2 and attacked the airport in South Korea. I love Motofumi’s comics and have more than 20 books. Apart from the WWII stuff, I love “Hydt”, I’ve probably read it a dozen times or more.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORK ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORK Until I got the trumpeter kit, I didn’t know that a lot of different manufacturers have released Antonov AN -2 including 1/72 scale. The Antonov AN -2 is used for a variety of purposes, including transport, pesticide spraying, firefighting, and passenger transport. There are colorful airplanes, so it’s fun to see them.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORK ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORK A little silvering might have been caused by the decal. I tried to use a mark softer later, but it’s not so good.

I can buy it. But it’s impossible because I need to pay for storage and maintenance, and don’t have a pilot’s license.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORK ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORK There are quite a lot of large parts, so I thought it would be completed during my work. It’s similar to the one that made the Trumpeter Savoia Marchetti before. By the way, that was a torpedo using a general-purpose civilian aircraft. Antonov’s cockpit is different from that of a fighter plane.

This is less dangerous.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORK The tension wires are black fishing lines. I tried to keep tension as tight as possible.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORK This Antonov AN-2 1/48 scale is too big to display in my room. If you just want to enjoy the atmosphere, 1/72 would be enough. The 1/72 kit price is less expensive, maybe.

ANTONOV AN-2/AN-2CX COLT 1/48 HOBBY BOSS FINISHED WORKTo be honest, I don’t know if it’s cool. It’s a rather tasteful aircraft. The round shape from the center to the back of the rear of the fuselage is charming. I’d like to make a shiny jet fighter next time.
