  1. Well it has been a while hasnt it....... Been so focused on the Spitfire I finally decided I needed a change of scenery. 1/32 Trumpeter F4U-1D. This will also be a cut away but I now have an issue. I need to build my references. For now I have begun on the engine. Lets see how she goes. Here we go. Joe
  2. Many thanks. Much appreciated. Joe
  3. Thank you both. You have been very kind. Honestly not sure what will be next. Joe
  4. You are all very kind. Thank you. Joe
  5. Well all good things must come to an end. This is the finished Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E. Let me recap. -Scratchbuilt interior minus seven kit parts, one resin engine, and one resin seat. -Scratchbuilt tail wheel assembly. -Scratchbuilt wing framing. -Scratchbuilt .50 cals. -After market decals. All told way to long to finish. But I will take it. Again the pictures are much too faded but this time I know why. There are some issues/omissions, glaring to me. The ones I did not fix are the ones that would require me to tear the build

  7. Ok friends a post with two objectives. First: I have begun the weathering on the 1/32 Hasegawa P-40E. Using both a cheap set of oils and Abteilung 502 paints. I want to give this build a finish that suggests a story of an aircraft that has seen some hard use but is still airworthy. The aircraft was based out of India and supported flights over the Burma hump. Now the second objective is the quality of the pictures. I have spent quite a bit of time over the last four or five days trying to dial in a better quality picture. These are the la
  8. Sounds like more practice time is in order for me. Joe
  9. Thank you for looking in and the suggestions. I will need to play with this a lot more I think. Joe
  10. An update on the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E. This is a happy but yet unhappy update. First the happy. The markings are on. I have done just a little chipping so far with more subtle weathering to follow. Next up will be an oil filter to try to tone down the bright markings. I will also be working more on the landing gear. Now the unhappy. Ok down right disappointing pictures. Yes disappointing. You have seen the pictures I spent around two and a half hours to get. I was so disgusted I reset the camera back to the default factory settings. I then made
  11. A quick update on the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E. In short the wing is on. It took a massive six hour battle but it is on. There was some collateral damage. Of the damage some I was able to work with, the rest I cannot fix without total tear down. Not sure I want to go there at the moment. For now. Now I can move on. My real decision is do I place the details in the wing and risk breaking them in the rest of the process or do I move on with decals and smaller parts. Gonna have to think on that one. All comments, critiques, and criticism are encouraged. Jo
