Y'see this is what happens when I'm left without supervision... I wander around the cave opening boxes and then 'tinkering' with the contents, and before you know it, there's another project about to hit the bench...

Looking good Ian B)

I'm sure you are aware of the cowling issue with the kit? Check out Kitmodellers P-47 build thread, I believe G2 posted a link for a correction for it (though you probably are on top of this ;) )

Only AM in the pit is the Eduard pre-painted belt (all individual buckles and tightening straps threaded individually).

The last photo is my start point for the next session. The fuselage join is filled, sanded & polished. The wing/fuse is glued and as I write this sitting on the bench 'setting-up'. As I'm changing my 'role' within NZCG just now there's a lot of free-time before it all goes a little 'mad' as I take-on my new position,
so whilst I've got the time, I'm enjoying the hobby AND the chores !!

More soon.


Ian.

Cockpit looks really nice Ian. One other thing to note with this kit (not sure if you have fitted them already or not) is the underwing panels that get added in are slightly too small for the hole in the wing, if you shim 2 edges with thin plasticard before you fit them, it makes fitting them a lot tidier. If you've already sorted them then all good. Just a tip I found that helped me a lot.

Yep well past that sub-assembly, G2. Didn't have any issues at all on that part, in fact almost no fit or seam issues at all so far, but I haven't glued the cowl together yet - just taped together ready for painting. Got an eMail from the 'powers that be' this morning saying I'll need to spend a couple of days down in Wellie next week, so going to make the most of my time in the Cave this week.

Off now to buy some more Tamiya yellow for this thing... more tomorrow.

I should have been clearer before, it is the singular square panel on the port underside wing that I am referring to, the other inserts with the flaps all went in sweet. Have seen many other builds online with the same issue but regardless, if you got it in and looking good then thumbs up!

Some more progress:



Main construction all done, filled, sanded and polished. Wings & fin masked ready for stripes - and you will NEVER see my bench this messy ever again. Hate working like this, I'm really 'anal' about keeping the work-area as tidy as possible.













Stripes done, ready for base-coat. Going to try AK's enamel black base coat for the first time instead of my usual Tamiya glossy black acrylic. Hopefully I can get that done later today when the sunshine warms the cave a little more.

Stay tuned.


Ian.

That's a beautiful metal finish Ian, i really love the sheen. The Jug is one of the nicest WW2 aircraft in my opinion.

Wow what a great finish,...I've done a lot of metal finishes and know how hard that is! You are also much smarter than me..... you masked the yellow and not the metal finish!! it took me a while to figure that out, especially with the high gloss/chrome finishes :-)

Seriously well executed!!!

That's all the metals done, cowl on (no problems thankfully), flaps just pushed in to place for now.
























Please let me know what you think about the tones of the metal etc. Will have to leave it for a few days now as I've had to order a new batch of Phil Flory's 'Florywash' for the panels and the package is still on the way. Not a bad thing as I can build and spray the undercarriage parts tomorrow, and maybe start on something else as a 'background build' or maybe finish an already started build.

More later in the week with luck (and if Rural Delivery allows !!). Thanks for taking the time to look and/or comment.

Ian.

Your model is looking oh so crisp. Spotless finishes, and I'm impressed with the AK enamel metallic finish. Do they stink much when spraying Ian?

Not too bad, Terry about the same as normal enamels tho' certainly a LOT less than Alclad lacquers, however, in the sunlight you can see the metallic particles so I NEVER, NEVER spray these or any metallic paints without a mask.
