P-38 Lightning, Revell 1/32


Recommended Posts

Thanks Shaka, Mike and Mark! :)

 

I used a clear sprue to make lights.

Polished some.

As can be seen, the sprue had a hollow middle, or perhaps a bubble, that needs sorting with CA glue and some more polishing.

Need to get some new glue first though. :)

 

I added some weigth to the empty engine room.

Now I just need to add weight to the mid section, which have to wait till cockpit is glued in place.

I put together the other boom and inserted wheel well and engine.

Typical Revell copyright marking :)

Not hard to remove, but I've seen worse placements.

Really enjoying following along with your work - great stuff!  Question for you - did you put any weight into the engines to help prevent tail-sitting?

Coming along very nicely Hakan.  It's good to see what can be done with these old classic kits.

 

I do wonder why Revell copyright statements are not somewhere inconspicuous such as inside a wing half.  The worst I had was on a certain biplane's elevator (no names no pack drill): easy to remove the copyright statement, not so easy to restore the fabric effect which was very well done on the kit.
