Thanks pete. I'm looking forward to it myself. Just trying to force myself to really take my time on this one. So much work having to go into fixing issues with the kit that if I work on it too long in one sitting I'll end up getting frustrated and make things worse. Probably pretty obvious since I replied so fast even though I was working on the bomb racks already. They put pin marks in the small links in the center. Got them knocked out easy enough, but getting it nice and smooth afterwards is going to be tricky. None of my sanding sticks can fit into that small of a space.

Thanks neil. Yeah I was noticing that german equipment to use for a diorama is hard to come by. A lot of the kits that I got are actually newer kits in 1/48, so maybe there will be more coming out in the near future. Was actually about to start painting the interior about an hour ago, but decided to check out the directions one more time. Turns out there were more pieces that I was still missing. So glued them on, and going to give the glue about another hour to dry before I start painting. Also will probably set this aside after this weekend. Should have the decals for the f-22 I'm building by monday (according to the tracking. There's that word again nigel [wink]), so I'm going to try and finish that up once they arrive. Shouldn't take too long since it should just be decals and a tiny bit of weathering, so I'll be back to this soon. Still have this weekend to get some done though.

I'm affraid of using tracking. When they arrive they will arrive.
Was waiting for a delivery from Poland, found out my next door neighbour has had the package for a week and forgot to drop it in to me.
Having a break this weekend as I'm back on nights, hopeful my decals will arrive on Monday.

Your build is coming on very well.

Thanks nigel.
Got the base coat of paint down on the interior. As I was painting I was starting to dread just how much detail painting there is going to be.

Now that I look at the picture this area is a little light. Seat doesn't matter since that is going to get painted a different color, but the rest does.

Downside to putting this all the way together was it was a pain to get into all the little holes with the airbrush. However since part of it was added detail, it would have been difficult to glue it on without hurting the paint if I painted it first.



Now I just have to decide how much I hate myself. That will be the determining factor in how much of the detail I'm going to pick out and paint. Currently I'm feeling a lot of self loathing, so most if not all of it will be painted. If I'm liking myself a little more when I start painting it some of the detail that cant be seen as easily might be left out.

What colour & make is that base colour, sometimes the camera shows it a little richer.

Looks great kenny, once you've got your detail brush or cocktail stick highlighting the details and the dust has settled it will look awesome.

Thanks mike and nigel. The green was vallejo model air 71.010 interior green. Same color I used for the cockpit in my p-47. Was still a little wet when I took the pictures, and the daylight lamp seems to lighten it up a bit. Going to be doing a wash and using a bunch of pigments once the details area all painted, so it should darken it up quite a bit. It also darkened up a little after it dried for a little bit.
Planning on at least attempting to really weather this up. Was doing a little research on ruthie, and this plane was based out of Alasani, Corsica. She had 108 completed missions, and was one of the few planes to survive the war. With the number of bombs on the decal sheet it would have been late in the war, so she would have been pretty dirty. Going to make some attempts to really dirty up the outside as well, but I'm not that far yet. lol

Thanks mike. It's definitely not the best kit out there and it's been fighting me as much as it can. But it's slowly cleaning up. Big difference in the amount of work going into cleaning the parts and assembling them with little to no gap on this kit compared to the hasegawa f-22 was. One thing I really wish was available for this kit is some color PE for the interior. Some of the control detail is just ok, and I'm sure the detail that eduard usually puts on their color PE would really make a difference. But alas, they only have a non-color set. Though with the diorama I think the main focus is going to end up being on the exterior, and the other elements of the diorama. Think I should start looking into how to make a grass field or something for the base soonish. Could use that as another distraction for when this kit starts to get me too frustrated.

Well don't forget the mushrooms and cow pies lol. Every field needs that.  [wink]

Just Kidding. It has been an age since I last tried a Revell aircraft kit. I like their 1/72 armor line even if they are sometimes lacking detail. But I never once, ever, finished a Revell airplane. I think I should give it another shot someday. Especially since you're making it look easier than I remember it being lol.

Revell kits aren't terrible, and some of the newer ones are actually pretty nice. Even with the older molding, the plastic that they used on this is much easier to work with than the old green plastic like my a-10 had.
