  1. Hello again. My "Hopefully this weekend I'll get more bench time" always seems to turn into 3 weeks. As a bit of a snap decision I decided to break out my riveter. I've been wanting to try riveting an aircraft for a while and thought the Revell P-51 was a good test bed since it was inexpensive and the puttied wings would make it an easier project. It wasn't as hard as I expected it to be, but my work isn't to the level of a lot of builds I've seen on here. I'll cut myself some slack for a beginners effort though. Another rookie mistake was not running some thin wash over the rivets before taking these pictures so those of us not from krypton could see them. Next up some seem filling on the wings and some serious work on the radiator inlet. Thanks for looking. Jeff
  2. A very minor work update. Painted a number of sub-assemblies before I head out of town for a couple days. Hoping this weekend I'll be able to seal up the fuselage. Thanks for looking. Jeff
  3. Scrounged together a little time and managed to get a wash down, add the HGW belt and seal things up with alclad Matte. The pictures showed me a few things to correct, but should be able to move on with further construction pretty soon. So far enjoying the kit, but if I built another or if Revell released a P51B or C I would probably spring for an aftermarket instrument panel. Thanks for looking. Jeff
  4. Hi. I'm in the process of building a P-51 and am going to attempt painting the markings with a montex mask set. Do you typically paint the base coat then add the markings or do you get the markings down, mask them and put down your base colours? I've seen it done both ways, is there advantages to one over the other or is it strictly builders preference? Hopefully that question made sense. Thanks for your time. Jeff
  5. Beautiful. I wish there was a new tool beaufighter because I'd love to build the plane, but know I can't scratch build like you're doing. Cheers Jeff
  6. Hello again. My usual slow progress continues. Pretty much out of the box so far with a few airscale decals to busy up the kit decals and a little bit of wire added to the radio. A couple small bits are still missing till after I get down my flat coat. My plan is to let the gloss dry further overnight, then add some washes. So far great kit, but my only complaint is the instrument panel decals. Mine did not line up correctly and I'm not loving how it turned out. Since I've seen other builds online that turned out perfectly I'm going to assume it was an operator error on my part. However if I had to do it again I'd probably cut out the individual dials like I usually do. Thanks for looking. Jeff
  7. Those are probably the most beautiful P-47 builds I've ever seen. Amazing stuff. Jeff
  8. Hello again. Due to work I've been able to work on anything too seriously since Christmas. To get back in the saddle I decided to take a stab at Chuck Yeager's "Glamorous Glenn II". I love these cheap Revell kits, and I'm pretty elated they they've finally at least started labeling their sprues so finding parts is less of a wild goose chace. Planning on keeping this build very simple so I don't lose interest. I'm hoping blogging this will help me keep on task too. Besides the wheels, exhaust and masks I will probably add some sort of aftermarket belt. At this point I have about maybe 90 minutes into it. A little flash here and there but otherwise drama free. I'll try to work on my photography skill for future posts. Thanks for looking. Jeff
  9. Fantastic V1! I especially like the base. The tracks left behind by the trolley wheels are a great touch. Jeff
  10. Loved following along on your build and can't wait to see the finished project. I keep waffling between entering a Ju88 or a Bf110 in this group build and this build is certainly nudging me towards the 110. Cheers Jeff
  11. Amazing work. Thanks for the woodwork tips. I have a couple projects that I know they will be a huge help on. Jeff
  12. Enjoying the build immensely. There can never be enough Thunderbolts on this forum. Congrats on winning the raffle as well if I have the right guy. Jeff
  13. Coming along really great. I also appreciate your work proof-reading the instructions as I may join later in the year with a 110 as well. Jeff
