I wish some one would do a new 1/48 tooling of this long necked bird.
30. January 2018, 10:11
Jens
an absolutely crazy construction but really interesting because :D and I would also say that would be very long a replacement with a new kit desirable

Do not look for easy ways? Of these firewood it is difficult to make a decent product. Good luck.
30. January 2018, 10:32
Michael Phillips
A new tooling of this odd bird is definitely needed! But I do not see that happening any time soon. So it's the old Hobby Craft kit or nothing. I will probably get the vacuform canopy and the LSM cockpit set before I start this, so hopefully I can make something good out of it!

I tried to build this beast last century, I was pretty new to the hobby back then and my skill level was not there nor were my patience & I went through my fair share of kits that did not survive being thrown Mach 2.1 across the room and into the bedroom wall (which at the time was brick);)

I need some help from all you people out there. I cannot determine what colour is used for the wheel wells. Fujimi states that they are silver, but considering that the 12 Photo Cutlasses were produced circa 1954-1955 I tend to accept that interior green is the correct one. As for the wheel well covers I think they where painted in aluminum dope or something.

Finally the cockpit seems to be grey with black consoles but the ejection seat is something of an unknown.

Any help would be much appreciated!

Urban Gardini
I think that the use of interior green in the wheel bays was phased out around '52-53.
17. February 2015, 21:43
Maciej Bellos
Hi Urban,

According to the following link:

tailspintopics.blogspot.gr/2..-from-blue-to-graywhite.html

white wheel wells were not officialy required until 1956. Before that they where sea blue, zinc chromate or white.

Since there were only 12 F7U-3P, all in natural finish, I would expect them to have the wheel wells in zinc chromate or interior green and not white or blue. The argument is that since they were not painted ever until their retirement in 1959 (even the official switch to light gull grey over white was not applied to the photo cutlasses) and remained in natural metal finish I suppose the wheel wells were not painted either. Just my two cents.

Does anyone else have any other ideas?

Maciej
18. February 2015, 20:29
Urban Gardini
Nice info mate! My conclusion of that is that the wheel wells would've been left unpainted. But painted wheel wells do spice up a NMF bird quite nice.

Thanks Bill for your nice words, I must say that the actuators come out well, I'm happy with the result and it was a joy to built that Fujimi kit
