  1. I present to you my 1st build back in a year it is the 1/72 Tamiya kit representing “Sleepy Time Gal”. a P-47D from the 58th FG. 69th FS. New Guinea 1944. Please feel free to ask questions, post comments, or visit the build thread. Dennis
  2. I started this for the 'Revell-Monogram Classic GB', and as a spur to speedy work am entering it here as well.... This is the intended subject.... Profile and photo both from the old Aircam on the type, from Boxart Den. Obviously the glare panel isn't blue, but otherwise the thing seems reasonable enough, the ornate 'cherry blossom' unit badge did not make it to New Guinea. Mottle will be applied over aluminum foil. I don't mean to do much detailing on this, and haven't the heart to match the old thing against any drawings. It meets 'looks like one at a glance to me' standard, and I am more interested in the ;field camouflage' finish. However, the landing gear gape needed tending.... Opening was outlined in styrene rod, most 1.0mm square, some 1.0mm x 0.5mm strip, then capped with a bit of 10 thou card. Here it is from the outside, still with just one closed off. Both are now closed off, and wings assembled. This is just to illustrate the good fit of major elements. The fuselage is press-fit, and so is the canopy. I found it like that when I took down the box, and was surprised to find it wasn't glued. Assembled wings are press-fit only, and it doesn't look like filler will be needed. I mean to put in a pilot figure. Surface will have to be smoothed and scribed for the foil.
