Folks,

 

i have to tell you what a great group of people you are. I posted a question today to try and decide which of two approaches I should take with the wing tanks, and within 30 minutes I had TWO offers of Hasegawa wing tanks. Incredible. Really enjoying my time here. Wonderful folks. Thanks!

Joe, great work buddy. As for working with resin...don't be afraid...it's pretty easy. I will suggest one thing though...make sure to wash them in soap water to clean off the release agents used during the casting process. Other then that...rock on my friend ;)

OK Fellow LSP'ers :-)  Here's an update.

 

Received the avionics bay. Got that cleaned up and painted in chromate yellow.

Finished the internals of the wheel bays, and need to put a final white coat before weathering.Time consuming working with these small resin parts, but worth it in the end.

..and drum roll please..... the PIT FITS! :frantic:  this was my biggest area of concern never having done a resin cockpit before and the Aires instructions suck. Had some kit shaving to do as well and that was nail biting - but great to see it fits. Need to ad a few more things to the pit and then I'll finish the seat.

Onward and upward.

Nice work Joe,

 

I love my Dremel, it even helped me yesterday grinding the slots in a new starter solenoid bracket in my 49 Hudson that was due at a wedding in an hour.

 

 We made it with 2 minutes to spare.

 

watch'in you :wicked:

OK, back from vacation and finishing the pit. A BIG THANKS to Kai for providing his step by step instructions in his F8 build thread on his cockpit weathering. These were invaluable to me. I used MIG pigments in dusting this up and I'm heading off to a graphic arts store today to get a selection of pastels as I think they will do a better weathering job in the future (finer grind).  

 

So have finished most of the pit, put in the MG and have started buttoning up the fuselage.
