  1. Hallo This is my F4B-4 in 1/32 from Hasegawa. More or less SOB just with engine update in Resin. The build was straight forward and due to your information about the a/c I could feel safe and informed. Hope you enjoy it. Happy modelling
  2. Greetings, hope you are all doing well! This is my latest completion, Hasegawa 1:32 Boeing P26 A Pea Shooter. This is quite an old kit, the plastic was hard and brittle, one yellow sprue was more like bakelite. I built this as part of a club build and put in a bit more work for this one. Quite a bit of work went into the cockpit. The instrument panel was replaced with a spare Kingfisher decal and I built up a front piece for it. The seat was replaced with my first attempt at vac forming and the rest of the cockpit was embellished with various bits and bobs. Typically when the fuselage was closed up you couldn't see a lot so here are a couple of WIP shots The back cushion was shaped out of miliput and lap straps were meant to be made from tape but found some Corsair ones which looked much better. I also added some cockpit placards to add a bit more interest. The gun barrels were replaced with brass tube. The kit comes with raised detail but I removed this as the joins while being not bad werent really good enough to keep the detail. The panel lines and rivet detail was then redone, using the rivet wheel for the first time (a second first!). All the paint work is from the airbrush with copious amounts of masking tape and ALOT of patience! The only decals were the badge behind the cockpit, the '23' and the 'US ARMY' on the under side. For the engine I replaced the push rods and exhaust/inlet piping with brass rod and some wiring harnesses added. There is a lot mentioned regarding the fit of the cowling around the engine so with this in mind I added a couple of thin slivers to widen the cowl. This worked really well and I didn't have to do too much faffing around in fitting out the cowl. It was still a right pain though and had to be done slowly. For the rigging I opted for rigid stainless wire, cant remember the size but it was quite fine. I think it is slightly over scale but it serves its use. The kit comes with all the rigging holes open so its a big invite to throw it in there. I did simplify the rigging between the spats as there is a bullet shaped fairing where the wires crossed. This just got far too complex so was left out! I think that's about it, quite pleased with how it turned out especially after that paint job! Thanks for looking in! Bob
  3. I have finally managed to get something finished. This is Hasegawa's 1/72 F4F-3 Wildcat 'Yellow Wings' boxing, which has AeroMaster Decals. It's quite an old kit now dating back to 1995, but the decals went on fine, and despite my misgivings, all the trim and stripes fitted perfectly. The subject I chose is Bureau No. 1850 of VF-41 from the USS Ranger, 1941. This took me quite a while as I found masking the colours a bit of a challenge. I used Colourcoats enamels for the Chrome yellow and Willow green US Navy colours, and Vallejo Aluminium for the laquered fuselage. It was all a bit too glossy so I gave it a coat of matt varnish to tone it down a bit. Hope you like it. The Wildcat turned out to be bigger than I had thought. Here she is with her sibling, an old Airfix Hellcat. Hopefully that has brightened up your day, It certainly adds some colour to the collection Thanks for looking.
