Hi everybody, The title says it all, really, are ther any photos to be found (preferably on the internet) of "Flying Dutchman", the P-51D-5-NA from the 31st FG in Italy? Thanks & Cheers, Erik!
Kit â€“ Hasegawa 1:32 (original issue) Paint â€“ Tamiya acrylics & AK Xtreme Metals Decals â€“ Kagero Extras â€“ Barracuda resin wheels, Eduard pre-painted etch seatbelts Republic P-47D-30 Thunderbolt Assigned to Lt. Frank Middleton 65th FS, 57th FG Corsica, mid-1944 An impulse build after a 1:48 Airfix Spitfire from a month or so ago. Five weeks from cracking the box to what you see here â€“ and yes I know I haven't painted the sway braces on the pylons and centreline yet. As usual with Hasegawa's BIG kits it simply fell together without any fuss whatsoever, I was expecting â€˜issues' with the multi-piece cowl, but it behaved impeccably. The huge take-away from this build is the incredible quality of AK's enamel lacquer's. So much better behaved than Alclad and nowhere near as â€˜smelly'. First time using Kagero's decals and they worked perfectly also. Not much else to say, my first 1:32 completion in a l-o-n-g time and enjoyed so much I dragged-out my H'gawa 109G-14 as a possible next projectâ€¦ Thanks for taking the time to look folks and please feel free to ask any questions or make any comments or criticism. Ian.
Hey folks This would have been a full WiP thread but like a few other folks here I had a bl**dy nightmare of a time with Photobucket over the last few weeks which only seems to have resolved itself now. Anyhoos here's my almost completed Hasegawa P-47. Eduard etch belts instead of HGW ones as I had them in-stock. Barracuda resin wheels which were two different types when I opened the pack but I used them anyway. Kagero decals from the 'Top Colours' book and AK Xtreme Metal enamel lacquers - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !! So the next time you see it (probably Saturday) it should be all done !!. In the meantime thanks for taking the time to look and/or comment. Ian.
