I haven't had much luck with finishing a group build, but with a new year it's time to give it a try. To convert the IXc to a IXe, I needed to order sprue LL from the Tamiya XVIe to get the correct wing gun bulges. I will use the Sky's decals and some limited aftermarket.

Sweet! That's my ultimate goal too. I got the E wing sprue from Tamiya a while ago in preparation for doing an IAF Spit.

Hello Berneckir.


I guess you must be deep into tge build
and engrossed that you forgot to show
your lovely WIP photos.. :wicked:


So how is the kit and your progress ?

By the way I like the box art -white cliffs of Dover... :thumbsup:

Ezer's plane.  Good show.

 

This gent sells sprues.  I've bought from him in the past.  No affiliation.  Just trying to help.

http://www.ebay.com/...gwAAOSw2s1U1not

 

If he's not selling what you need, put in a request.  That's what I've done.  He is not as inexpensive as Tamiya, considering Tamiya may be free, but if he has the sprue he may be faster.  Depending upon your needs.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

Thanks for the questions, guys. I just made some minor progress on the instrument panel using the Eduard zoom set. Still some items to paint and weather on the IP, then onto the seatbelts and the rest of the interior. Thanks for the prodding. I need it!

Hello berneckir,

 

Just wondering if you have managed to get any further on your project?

I'm looking forward to seeing this all painted up in your chosen scheme.

 

Cheers.
