    Resin Questions

    I found a Dremel razor saw handy. They come packaged like PE would.

    Thanks Kevin. Mid fuselage finished. Still needs cleaned and maybe some washes. Detailing you can really fall down a rabbit hole... Main goal now is to get the other two sub assembles finished.

    Thanks for replacing your photos Chris. I tried the same fabric seat you did, but failed miserably. I used some Eduard USN USAF late style seat belts I had laying around instead. Corrected the visual aid as it was not positioned right after it was reattached. Eduard Belts Seat installed.

    Metal primer then Tamiya Spray Laquer sprayed through the holes for decal placement. Front panel painted Instu black with Crystal Clear and some detail added from Eduards PE set. And mounted.
  5. Great to see you started back up Chris. Looks great.

    Engineering Hobbies is, I think, is their main site. I got the radiator and oil cool cooler plumbing in. There are two main return lines and two aux returns from the radiator. The oil cooler has another two lines. I used a smaller diameter solder than was in included in the kit for the oil cooler lines and another size for the aux returns as the kits did not fit through the firewall. The return lines on the bottom of the radiator are hard to get to and once glued they are easy to pull off routing the solder. I am debating whether to get some black solder paint and dying them black.

    Thanks Guys ​I took a chance and bought one off Ebay used and no returns excepted. Still hoping all the parts are there. ​Excuse the gluey finger prints and cat hair. There is still a lot of handling to do yet and I'll clean up when the sub assemble is finished. Steps 34 and 35 are reversed in the instructions, but it's easy enough figure out that one can not proceed without the other. Again fit is just amazing except I had a gap between radiator and air exhaust. I used JB Weld (metal epoxy) for any part the would show a seam and polished it on a Dremel to remove any excess epoxy. A polisher would be a very nice tool to have as the Dremel isn't very fine and will remove detail is you got nuts with it.

    Got a start on the radiator with the two major pieces in place. The radiator is 6 white metal pieces that go together nicely and don't show any seams. The air outtake (?) is a single casting polished a bit with a Dremel then sanded and finally clear metal coat primer.

    Not a bunch of progress: center floor, seat bracket, pedals, stick, and couple of bits. Eager to get to the radiator below.

    Many thanks John, it was first seeing your build that made me want to try the IMTCH P51, I use yours and Chris's as reference, at least till photobucket stopped hosting. The side panels and oil tank mounted. Used some of the Eduard set for Tamiya. Will probably stop here and start the belly scoop, then return to the cockpit.

    Hi Chris, I took a little bit of a break, but thanks for the heads up on the engine mount. it wouldn't have been on my radar as a problem area. On vacation this week and hope to get back on track. Small update: Working on the cockpit sides. Still need some more painting, maybe on decals and wires.

    Thanks guys, most of my pain has been self inflicted. This is the back 40 of the fuselage. I know the bottom tanks are oxygen, but I don't know what the larger tanks are for. Has some white metal pieces with an aluminum rod on the back bulkhead. Dropped a wire from the antenna to what I assume is an amp or radio gear.

    Floor build out with the formers. I am finding the fuselage is more challenging than wing to build. Plus dropping it on the floor and loosing the antenna outside during a quick spray of primer has hindered some progress. The two frame sides fitted to the floor. Tricky to assemble at first, but once fitted and a few points glued it was easier to manage.

    Video card troubles

    I really doubt it's a hardware issue. If it is an Intel Chip the Graphics is build into the the CPU and it shares the HDMI port with the discrete video card or the Nvidia. What should happen is the on board graphics should sense the NVidia and let it use the HDMI port. For your model of laptop there are many people who are having the same issue. It is probably a driver issue or a bios issue. Since there are no new bios available for that model yet a driver update is the only way to go. Just make sure you load it through the Lenovo Solutions site. One of their techs claims a new download fixes the issue, but for some people it did not work. The ultimate solution is running Win7 because Win10 has issue with the video issue even on different laptops.

    Beginning the fuselage with the first bulkhead filled with the fuel tank, radio, and battery. Got Eduard Tamiya Interior set and the 12 piece battery parts fit fine. Also, from the Eduard kit the cap for the fuel neck and dial face for the fuel level (?). Still need to do some painting, wiring, and clean up, but built up without any issues. Starting to covert the page away from Photobucket.
