1/32 Hasegawa P-40E Finished


Recommended Posts

Well folks time for another update.  

This time with a little color.

Now before I get into that let me set the background a bit.  Trying to avoid the overspray into the sections that have been cut open I plan to get the exterior of at least the cut side painted.  I also need to do this prior to installing some of the bits and pieces.  

So with that in mind here we go.  The over all interior had been painted with Stynlrez Metal primer.  Once dry Model Master Acrylic Zinc Chromate has been sprayed into the area to the rear of the cockpit.  Model Master Interior Green is sprayed into the cockpit area and the engine area is left with the Metal primer.  In the photos you will notice I did begin placing some of the easier detail parts.

Next up is the exterior.  First was a coat of Stynlrez Black Primer.  Over this using the Badger Extreme 105 I spray the same Zinc Chromate.  Now at this point let me tell you that I truly hate Model Master Acrylics.  I have had zero luck getting them to spray decent.  This time was no different.

I am hoping that by doing this layer and then spraying light coats of the top colors I can give the aircraft a faded look with just a hint of the primer coat underneath.

Now as a bonus for this post I can also show the painted engine.

So with this being to this point now I can concentrate on the exterior and get that out of the way.  I believe I will get it all painted as then I will not have to try to get the same mixtures.

Well folks it has been an interesting week but moving forward.

Here is an update on the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E.  

This week is all about the radio and the interior.  To prep for that I needed to get some initial paint on the cut side and then while I had the airbrush out I sprayed some on the uncut side.

After that dried for a couple of days on to the radio.

Next up is to continue the interior with more work in the cockpit.  As for the radio equipment I am pleased with how it looks.

With that ready I can begin the reconstruction of the wing.  Starting with the framework.

I did do a bit of work on the wing armament.  Here is my rendition of the M-2 fifty cal.

Hi Joe

 Terrific detailing job, congrats!

 

but please, in such a world,  it's terrible what I've to say and that makes me cry ...

As the pilot seat looks a bit over thick, did you think of an other replacement part?

;)

Many thanks all you are very kind.

 

As for the seat this is the best one I have.  Yes it is a bit thick.  Still better detail than so many others.
