    Painting the model with the X-18 was a mistake. Although it worked in the experiment I did on a wing used for testing on the model did not work. Fortunately the applied layers were very thin and did not cover the details. I painted the model again but this time with the X-1 (black gloss) and for now it worked. The cowling of the engine already with Alclad aluminum. Let's see how it goes out in the fuselage. Regards ajcmac

    My English is not good, either. I usually use Google translator. I do not know the model in 1/48. I know it is already the third Japanese model that I build and I liked them a lot. Yes. I used the Tamiya XF-71. I taught students from six to nine. Primary school. Thank you. I hope that in the end I will continue to think the same. Well, I used the Tamiya X-18 as the base color. I've done a lot of testing and it looks like it works. I will paint the model with Alclad Alc-101 Aluminum. Shipping will be done with maskol applied with a sponge. I hope it works as it is the first time I do. The use of cyan glue worked. Regards ajcmac

    Thanks corsaircorp and Jonh. Well, I'm a teacher but I'm retired and I spend many hours on the bench. Apart from the time I have with my grandchildren, I take almost all the free time to dedicate myself to the models. I finished the propeller. I glued both pieces to the wings. As I already knew it would not be easy instead of putty I used cyan glue. I think I solved the problem the easy way. Then I had to redo a few lines. And then I glued my wings to the fuselage. Almost everything ready to start painting. Regards ajcmac

    I had problems with my airbrush. As I did not know if it was the needle, nozzle or air cap I bought the complete set. I started to weathering the cockpit. I applied lights and shadows. I painted the small details. Now a layer of gloss coat and start placing the decals. Regards ajcmac

    And to the third it seems that the phantom line seems to have disappeared. The propeller is finished. Landing trains and doors, painted. Follow the wheels. Regards ajcmac

    To make it disappear the fuselage union line I used putty. It did not work. I then used cyan glue. I'll paint to see how it looks. I prepared the landing gear and the doors for the painting. The instrument panel already painted. Regards ajcmac

    I painted the propeller hub with the Tamiya XF-70, the propeller with the XF-64 and then the yellow stripe. I then applied lights with the XF-64 mixed with yellow on the leading edge and black at the base of the blades. Then I applied Alclad clear gloss. I glued the back of the fuselage. Regards ajcmac

    I started by gluing the wings and fuselage. I painted the interiors. I put the mask on the transparencies and painted the color of the interior. And that's enough for now. Regards ajcmac
  10. This is the model recently arrived home. This is a Hasegawa model on 1/32. The model. The trees and how normal all in one bag. Transparencies. The decals. Mask and PE. I already started building the model but I still have no photos. Regards ajcmac

    It's getting a longer setup because I have not yet received Eduard PE. Some more finished pieces. The exhaust pipes. Frontal machine guns already glued to the fuselage. Central machine gun. Regards ajcmac
  12. Petlyakov PE-2

    Fuselage with clear gloss and a wash. I applied clear mate. Detail of a gunner's instrument panel. The wheels. Rear landing gear already complete. Front landing gear. The wheels will only be glued near the end of the assembly. Regards ajcmac
  13. Petlyakov PE-2

    Wheels already painted. Landing gears wells and doors and bomb bay doors. Some parts of the interiors. Seats. Engine. The two halves of the fuselage have already been painted with lights and shadows. And, that's all. Regards ajcmac
  14. Petlyakov PE-2

    Slow but it will. I painted the inside of the fuselage. The engine. Motor tubes. And still missing some already painted but in the sprues. Seats. Engine mounts. Regards ajcmac

    And after cutting, cleaning and gluing many pieces, it's time to use the airbrush. I started with the engine. Here the engine parts painted black already with some weathering. The wheels with painted tire, missing the rim. Regards ajcmac
