Hello everyone! Here is… after 7 months I finally finished my first 1/32 model. It was my wife’s present to my birthday (she simply liked the nose art, and I do too J). So, I didn’t want to disappoint her and put all my efforts to make this model as good as possible. I tried to show this famous Air-a-cutie hard weathered in its condition prior to be repainted in her final known “white tail livery” J The only available pictures show different nose arts thus there are lot of opinions either there were one or more Air-a-cuties. Another thing which still produces lot of debates – is it P-39 or P-400?.. Another feature of the build was an IFF SCR-535 set with installed antennas - Thanks to the US Army CECOM Historical Office who provided me a full operational manual. I used photoetched parts for the cockpit and planned to install brass armament but was so tired in the end of building process… and decided just to put those simple plastic parts from the box. But it would definitely improve the model appearance. May be next time J Also, I admit the final result is not ideal, but I learnt lot of good practices and would like to thank all of those modellers who supported me during this build. The entire building process can be seen here:
Hi! Few month ago I started to build this kit... I decided to post the process as it appears to be a long build with lot of fun. It's 1/32 P-39D Airacobra from Revell. This is something new for me as I usually interested in 1/72. The model can be build with cockpit doors open thus I decided to use cockpit detail set from Eduard. After two month in work I'm still very busy with the cockpit. However, here are some pictures of what have been done so far: Nose wheel bay details are painted and weathered: Pilot's seat and some cockpit details are ready. Some more cockpit details are installed and painted: The work continues on some other small details and instrument panel: Nearly finished cockpit: Now I work with the seatbelts:
I'm on the last stages on my build and want to add the radio whip aerial, IFF blade antenna, and the “Rebecca” Beam-approach aerial. What I would like to know is the length of the radio aerial and IFF antenna. Also would the IFF and beam approach be painted in the underside colours, the RAF museum example has yellow IFF and the beam approach seems to have a black body and yellow aerial, is this likely ? Also does anyone have any dimensions for the beam approach body ? Cheers Dennis
