In the words of George Castanza "I'm back baby!"

For the last few years my modelling output dried to a trickle then to an arid wasteland. One of the biggest mojo killing projects I have ever faced was converting a Heller DC-6 to a DC-7C I started this conversion in 2010! First with a contrail conversion set (lumps of misshapen resin) then much higher quality pieces from Neil Gaunt from Aircraft in Miniature whom I begged to look into doing a conversion set.
The amount of cutting repairing filling and sanding was overwhelming. The other model is the Revell DC-4 converted to an Argonaut also using an AIM conversion set. I started this one in about 2015, it too gave me the Royal Squitts! In the last week I did the final filling sanding priming and glued the wings on, masking and paint prior final assembly.

Wow, those are not easy conversions, love that you are getting back into them, really looking forward to the finished schemes
