P-38 Lightning, Revell 1/32


Recommended Posts

Thanks Mike! :)

 

Yeah, it's a bit strange! It seems like they are putting them inside too, for some reason. Restoring detail is usually the biggest problem. :)

 

I've been struggling with the seemingly easy wing alignment, and finally seem to get it right. Pics and rest of story, hopefully later today.

Cockpit/wheelbay could then be put in place.

The wing parts was glued together.

That's when all the problems started. It wouldn't fit as it should.

I had to break open the wings, and all the handling broke some other parts too.

Have to deal with that later.

 

After some tweaking, I got the wings in place.

Not perfect, but i have to sort that later.

 

Might as well glue the booms and stabilizor while at it. ;)
