Erik, thank you. I have contacted the author of the article, Jean-Luc on the forum page. I hope he sees it.

Will you be painting the underside aluminum?
17. January 2019, 15:08
Erik Leijdens
Good to hear that! Yes, bare aluminium undersides as per KNIL painting instructions.

Added some pics of the cowling with the filled air bubbles. I also have enlarged the resin flaps since they are 2,5mm too short..

Hi Erik, Is this kit on hold again ? I built the Hobbycraft P-36 A kit recently and I was interested to see what you did with yours. Looks promising !
27. October, 17:15
Erik Leijdens
Hi Boris yes unfortunately this is on hold for a while now. I have to make the cooling flaps on the cowl but they have to be thin and follow the rounding and that's were I suffer a "BSOD" every time I try to make something. So this is on hold until the day I have a sudden flash of inspiration :)

Following! AZModel is developing worse since 2-3 years in my opinion. And they take KP with them now as it seems..
I heard there are some major issues and animosities inside the Czech Manufactures community :)

Patryk S.
Thanks for joining! AZ seems to have lovered their standards for some of their kits - this is unfortunately one of them and the P-36A-8 is even worse in regards that the engine there is unusable. They made a decent attempt with their Mig-19 recently however. I like them very much for one thing though - many of thir kits like the BF-109 and also the P-36 have very decent cockpit details which many mainstream kits seem to ommit. I have build the airfix P-40 recently and it was a dog of a kit in my opinion with lacking detail and most of the mistakes were not self inflicted as i noticed them in other builds of the same kit although i am also not without guilt :) so not all is gold that shines in mainstream :) You got to hand to short run manufaturers one thing though - they produce kits of esoteric kits which we never see done by mainstream manufacturers. Even the P-36 - did not have a mainstream kit made for years after the monogram and heller kits even with the fact that it's an important plane in US aviation history. SH made an attempt but I can not locate that kit anymore, so as always you take the only game in town and are happy that it exists when you need to have one in your collection. I heard that eduard and AZ are not friends after both did the spitfire in 1:72 and had different opinions on the accuracy of both of them :)

Łukasz Gliński
They had indeed, check out whether you're gonna have to split the cowling or not. Today I'd cut it in 3 parts and rebuild to get the symmetry back. Hopefully your example is better, fingers crossed
24. October, 17:01
Patryk S.
Update: Filled gaps in firewall and rear wheel bay with Mr Diddolved putty - I can reallr reccomed this product as it realy saves much time with ckean up using normal puttty, then primed most of the parts grey. Other which will be painted metallic colours will be primed in black.
24. October, 17:01
Patryk S.
Thanks for the advice Łukasz! You are doing another one or correcting the french one? Just asking as I have still 5 in my stash :)
24. October, 17:04
Łukasz Gliński
Been watching an online auction of the very rare 75H version lately, but gave up for budgetary reasons :D
As I messed up the fuselage markings on my Hawk I still consider bulding another one, also a Finnish and West Indian examples. Will see if the plan ever comes true :D
24. October, 18:39
Patryk S.
My plans are of building another Pearl Harbor defender, this time in silver livery, an US A-8 version, a chineese one and an USAAC P-36C. If this build doesn't destroy my enthusiasm then i will most prpably proceed with those plans as the P-36 is one of my favourite planes.

Warning for the future builders of this kit: the Haegelen's plane had neither the white stripes on the fuselage nor the white border around the fuselage roundels.
I found it too late to correct :(

Beautiful result after the ordeal you had to go through! You really turned some random pieces of plastic into a great model! :) I also like that the future Tomahawk/Kittyhawk lines are already visible.

Great job Lukasz . Nice camo and hangar.

Łukasz Gliński
Many thanks guys, much appreciated.
@Patrick: The kit's quality is not outstanding indeed, but it's buildable as you can see ;)
Hmm, it might actually look interesting beside a P-40, I have to consider that.
@David: Nice to see that my famous hangar hasn't lost its sex-appeal yet ;)

Very nice, Łukasz!... The effort was worth it. I just hope someday I can take mine with desire.

No, that hangar backdrop is still as gorgeous as before. It really gives a realistic 3D feeling to the photos especially with some soft natural light.

But on the serious side: there are couple of cool French pre-war planes I wanna build, e.g:
- lovely little MS225,
- tramways: Amiot 143, Blochs MB 200 & 210, Potez 540,
- cool Breguet 693.
except the ones used by Polish air Force in exile, of course :)

This is interesting subject. Have I infected you :) I wonder how you are going to translate the colors" old leaves, young leaves." I follow your progress.
24. September 2015, 06:32
Erik Leijdens
It's indeed all your fault Martien :D! The "Jongblad and Oudblad" choice will be a hard one. Since it's a fierce discussion on the Dutch forums... I have the White ensign colors in the stash but they are not spot on if I have to believe the "experts". But I believe there is not a person alive today who can tell with absolute certainty in what colors the Hawks were painted, maybe they had the standard USAAF camouflage colors? Or a combination of both Dutch and US colors? And i think also it could differ between each unique Hawk in the inventory. We will never know.. But, I will do my best to slightly get it correct off course .

What makes me more concerned is the shape and length of the cowling. The kit parts are nor round enough and are of the type for the USAAF P-36A with the 14 cylinder engine and not the more powerful 9 cylinder engine the export versions had. You can see here in this outstanding build review on Aeroscale what I mean: aeroscale.kitmaker.net/modul..amp;file=view&artid=4723

I can live with small shape issues but that cowling is just not good enough for such a upgraded Hobbycraft kit :)

Ja ....die moet ik ook nog een keer hebben. Heb er een van Acedemy. Maar deze is beter en gelijk de Hollandse versie. Kunnen we weer discussiëren over de kleuren : Oud blad en Nieuw blad. Dat is nog steeds een probleem......lach
2. October 2014, 18:42
Wim van der Luijt
Ik lees toch redelijke reviews over die Hobbycraft/Academy versie.... ik heb deze decal sheet ML-KNIL 1939/42 (Flevo Decals FD48-012, 1:48) en zou daar graag de bijbehorende kitjes bij zoeken. Kwam deze reviews tegen tijdens de "research". Van Nederlandse kleuren heb ik gelukkig nul komma nul verstand, dus kan ik bouwen wat ik er goed uit vind zien..... ;)

Die curtiss Wright staat regelmatig te koop op ebay duitsland. Met nederlandse decals. Maar een beetje duur voor een 1:48 model.
Vraag prijs 69 euro. Met kleuren ga ik ook niet in discussie. Maar je leest het veel op Hollandse modelforums. Het is een never ending story.....Maar ik vindt het wel grappig hoe ze eindeloos kunnen praten over een tintje bruiner of groener
2. October 2014, 19:44

Ik kom eigenlijk niet meer op NL fora....te veel rivet counters en soms ook een zure sfeer
2. October 2014, 19:57

Ik hou ebay sowieso in de gaten....zal hier ook een search voor aanmaken op mijn tablet, dan krijg ik vanzelf een seintje als er iets wordt aangeboden.

Martien: net de hele review nog eens op mijn gemak gelezen, het plasitc van Must Have is gelijk aan dat van Hobbycraft/Academy....dat was me nog niet opgevallen, maar zo staat het ook op de timeline hier op Scalemates

Ik ben eens......heel tijdje terug, lid geweest van IPMS Nederland......Ook zo,n lekkere sfeer. Nooit was het goed, en afkraken maar . Had het dan ook snel voor . Bouwen kan ook zonder club en je moet bouwen met plezier. Ik heb een poosje terug nog de Beechcraft staggerwing van Roden gebouwd in de versie van ZKH Prins Bernhard. Met de decals van Dutch decals.

Dit is een mooie kit. Ik heb hem in de stash en het is inderdaad het Hobbycraft plastic. Ik durf er alleen nog niet aan te beginnen met al dat resin :D
2. October 2014, 20:11
Wim van der Luijt
Persoonlijk vind ik resin makkelijker dan PE
2. October 2014, 21:02
Erik Leijdens
Dat wel maar bij deze kit moet je wat kitdelen uitzagen en vervangen door resin. Maar das wellicht gewoon eens proberen en wie weet valt het mee.

But reading the review let me understand why the manufacturer is so little-known. Except people really craving for a XP-37 who will give a go for a kit with different size half-fuselage? Is there really anyone at Model Alliance who didn't see this problem?

That would be a problem, yes! The review says 1/4 inch, that's over 6mm. Yikes!
