First progress. Some dryfitting,cleaning up the parts and made the cowling.

 

Nothing will be seen from the engine as I glued all parts.

 

This might be the most expensive Revell WW-2 kit on the earth,but it's still old, bad fitting and doesn't do it's price justice.

Alright Erwin! This is a classic. Can't wait to see how it builds up. Congratulations on winning a prize in the Carrier GB! :huh: Russ

Second most expensive!

I have the Revell George with a vacuformed conversion to make it a Rex.

I weep every time I think about it.

 

Sincerely,

Mark

Erwin,

I'm glad you are building this Jack kit. They only built about 350 real Jacks before the war ended I understand. Revell at least out prodused them in that respect.

 

I have one in my stash only cause i wanted all the old Revell boxart kits from the late 60's mostly by Jack Lynnwood.

 

This was one of my first ever EBAY purchases $60.00 USD back then years ago seemed like a lot of money but it's peanuts now.

 

I got an already built and crashed Jack from Larry so I could actually build the kit!!!!

 

The Jack and George are on my "to do list"

 

Anyway Hasegawa will most likely put out some IM kits soon LOL

 

I converted an "expensive" KI-61 to a KI-100 and it seemed terrible to do so.

 

Anyway I'm glad you are doing the Jack - that will make me do my rebuild at least since it's on the list.

 

Cheers,

Jon

Hey- can I have the box when you are done? I'm going to start collecting those old Revell box top paintings.

 

Good luck with that build, I remember building that one back in the day.

I have a Jack... where can I get aftermarket parts for it? :P :lol: ;)

 

I have to admit I've held off on building this one yet as it will need a lot of extra work to do it justice.

 

Go Erwin!

Uh...can I ask a dumb question? I am curious as to why you painted the cockpit of Jack, blue? Jack should have a green cockpit similar to FS34102. The inside surfaces except the cockpit would be aotake (blue-green or strictly meaning bamboo color). But...it's your Jack, I was just curious.
