Michael Drover I've made pretty quick progress on the P-40. The HGW seatbelts being the fiddliest parts so far, not sure if'I'll use them again for a 1/48th subject.
2. September at 00:54:03
Michael Drover It was assembly only on the P-40 tonight. The cockpit, wing roots and fuselage have all been joined. Test fitting of the wing while the fuselage glue dried revealed some fit issues. Either the distance between the wing root on the fuselage is too small or the corresponding distance on the wing is too short. Opting for the lesser of two evils I cut the spar that makes the wing rigid rather than chop material off the wing panels. It allows some flex for the wing to fit in the gap. The other work was on the prop and spinner. The kit would have you capture the prop and it's hub between the front and rear of the spinner. I hacked off the blades which I'll later pin back on. This allows me to install just the hub and the fore and aft spinner parts, in turn allowing me to clean up the fit and the paint it before reattaching the props.

Michael Drover Thanks @Spanjaard!

Michael Drover Back to the P-40 now that the F-16 is done. Beginning with the panel lines, Gunze 336 Hemp on the middle stone and 50:50 of Gunze 310 and 72 (brown/dark earth) over the dark earth. The underside is 70:30 of Gunze 67 and 56 (RLM65 and int blue) followed by a distemper using ArtFX masks with 30:40:30 of Gunze 56/45/322 (light blue, int blue and pthalocyanine blue). This was then followed up with a light freehand coat of the base colour, Mr Color Azure blue. All mixes were thinned with Mr Color levelling thinner. Lots to go yet!

Cheers,
Mick

Michael Drover Time to start the grime.

A few hours last night with a thinned mix of Gunze Gloss Black/Tyre Black/Red Brown. I'm having a lot of fun weathering this thing and there's plenty to go.

Layer upon layer, upon layer, upon layer....
7. November at 00:00:54
Michael Drover It's all decaled and and on it's feet.

I had a moment on Sunday arvo when trying to thread the aerial wire, got up and walked away to try again last night (Monday). This time with success, thanks for the chat BA. Also tried a different lighting set-up in the photo booth with much better results.

Another hour or two and it should be finished.
