Finally attached the "firing rocket" to the P-38. Was not sure it would work but it came off fine. I got everything in place and lined up, then applied drops of fast CA glue to the cotton where it was touching the other rockets on the christmas tree wing rack. I like it.















one more item to finish. the canopy. I am working on that and I will show my solution to a problem that occurred when I went to vacuform a new one. its a good story. check back later!

It looks amazing Ted, the spinning props are great but the firing missile really sets it off mate

thanks Pete. I saw a video [its posted in my thread] of a P-38 firing its rockets and I thought, "HMMmmmm......I could re-create that rocket firing". I'd seen other modelers do it so i gave it a go. I'm pleased with it.

Holy cow! Only Ken could do that better! I am very happy with this choice Ted! I see epic-ness unfolding before my eyes.  [biggrin]

I love that you've got the smoke trail starting far behind the wing like that. Not only does it look realistic, but it does convey a most satisfying appearance of movement to the plane itself. Yes! Yes, this is very good!  [biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin]

I consider that a huge compliment coming from you Mike. thank you. I still have to do a bit of paint on the smoke [some of the "foam glue" I used on the foam core center of the trail has yellowed as it dried]. Its going to need a careful light AB of white, then a few slightly graying areas for the "burned fuel" areas in the smoke--should make it look a bit more dimensional as in Shadow/light distribution. IN the video--posted earlier in the thread--as the rockets launch, there is some immediate backwards smoke plume + the fact that the plane is flying forward. Still have to sort the canopy out also. I will be posting everything as I get it finished. Thanks Again Mike!!

Ted I second what Mike has said and its a big WOW from me.  That really brings a real dynamic feel to that already excellent Lightning and it well just looks right.  So that deserves a big well done "bonnie lad" from me and I will have to have ago at that.

Thank you Ian and Gary! I enjoyed the 1/72 although I keep saying I won't build another. My hands are huge and its really difficult to handle the small scale. I wear a size 14 ring. On top of that my vision stinks. lets see if I can find another excuse? I do all my work with my elbows---Kidding of course! thanks again guys!

I have not forgotten my little P-38. Still need to make a plug and vacuform a canopy. During the move from UNIT 7 to the new storage space, the "firing rocket" and whole missile rack popped off--go figure, CA glue.

I bought  chunk of Balsa wood today at HobbyTown. I hope to make my canopy "plug" from it OR.......make it from Milliput 2-part epoxy putty. Either way I have enough of both materials to screw up many times before having to get more. trick will be getting the canopy frames on. I am thinking about using tiny strips of tape and over-coating with something [glue? varnish?] to make it all one piece for the vacuform molding process. I also thought about leaving the frames off and creating them with thin tape after the canopy is made and applied to the P-38? decisions, decisions.. I may try both methods and see what happens?
