Couple weeks ago i started this project that came with a really cool back story
At last years LSP X-Mas raffle (2016) i won some very cool books , looking back on the thread i notice that maru seamed to relly like them, so i decided to donate them to him no strings attached. To my very big surprise Maru insisted in sending me his raffle win, a 1/32 Special hobby P-39D complete with a Big Ed set, as amazing as this was he also added a squadron walk around and a sort reference on WWII british camo!! its been almost a year and as im writing this im still speacheless!
Ive been wanting to get to this one and i promiessed myselft to get it going before years end, now ive only manage to build one kit this year , a USCG HH-65.
This year has been a wild ride, ive changed job twice, for the better btoh time, but that brouth lots of late night and homework catching up with the projects , teams, technology stack and on top of that i did a kitchen facelift to my house on a tiny buget of 2500CAD$(buget was a persola challenge of proving that you dont need to spend 15000$ to have a nice kitchen) but im blabering! Back on topic
So for this build i really wanted to build a RAF gray and green scheme so got the Maketar Mask, and got my first set of brass barrels(profimodeler)
Here is my current progress Cockit is almost done and ive been cleaning up flight surfaces. I installed the PE in the wheels wells.
Ive spent some time building the PE flaps set but i realized i had to chop parts of the wings to fit them in and im not sure if im up for that challenge yet!.
I do have one question at the moment, What color are the intakes on these birds(on the leading edge of the wings) ? im leaning on painting them white but im not sure, the only good pics i have and B&W or OD green planes
More to come in 2018!
THANK YOU MARU
