Hello Nikola, wonderful paint  and weathering job, however be aware about  the seat,  that model  was used in F2 versions, on F4 the production  it became the standard used  in the ongoing  variants.

 

 

Hi Antonio. Thank you, I am glad that you like it so far. :)

 

As for the seat, it was a tricky question for me as well so I searched around for some answers. It looks like the early F4s had the same seat as the F2s. Hasegawa only shows this option in the instructions, although you get both seat types in the kit.

 

Here is a picture of Marseille with clearly a high backrest seat sticking out behind him:

Nice work, Nikola! The rudder is meant to be that way. The real planes were like that to offset engine torque.

Ah, makes sense. Didn't cross my mind. Similar to how P51 has its rudder offset. Thanks for the info Jay! Appreciated!

 

Best,

Nikola

Looking good Nikola!  Looks like you did a good job getting the upper panel sanded to eliminate the panel lines that should not be there.

 Hi Ernest,

 

Are you talking about the cowling?

 

Best,

Nikola

Hi Nikola , in the last pic, that rod in the middle of the chin scoop is a drain pipe and

should have a drain hole at the bottom of it.

Hi Mike,

 

Thanks for the tip. There is a small circular indent in the kit part so I guess I should drill it out completely. Does the rod go all the way to the hole?
