Yeah that turned out great, and it took me forever to find a figure in a t-shirt in that pose. What do you think of my new backdrop I got just in time for taking this picture? ROFL. [rofl]

Just got the tracking for my order from spruebrothers with paint and tools, and it should show up on the 3rd. Just before the holiday weekend, so I can get a nice long 3-day weekend to get started on the kit [biggrin].

Thanks aidan. I thought it looked good too. Been doing a little research on it, and apparently normally the blue sections are black for this squadron, but for the bicentennial paintjob, they changed it to blue.

Both schemes look pretty good, but the decals I have are for the blue one. I like the blue better, just because I really want to have a plane with some more color. And I like the color blue.

Thanks ted. with my bench shut down for the week all I can do is research and make decisions on what I'm going to do. The research is making the wait even harder, but is necessary to help me make it more accurate. At least I'll have everything I need to start on the PE and resin and stuff by the time my "bench" is back up and running. Looking forward to following along with your build as well.

Same thing here ted. Keep looking at the progress everyone is making on their phantoms while mine is stuck on a shelf till friday. Of course when I was buying a few more paints for the phantom this morning from spruebrothers I found out they have an anniversary sale going on and spent another $100 that I shouldn't have. Between my last 2 orders from them I have 2 new models and a set of interior photo etch for the p-47 i'm planning on starting after this, and a bunch of paint and a few tools for PE and a saw for resin. Should keep me out of trouble for a while. Will also keep me poor for a while too, lol.

Finally got started today. Working on getting all the unpainted PE in the cockpit so I can paint all that before putting on the painted PE. Ended up with a little accident while trimming up one of the instrument panels for the PE. Forgot to take a picture, but got it glued back together. On the plus side it made cleaning it up after trimming the parts that needed to be removed a little easier. Just got to glue the unpainted PE in now, and then paint it up. Then I can put in the painted PE. Styrene is already proving to be much nicer to work with than what I was dealing with on the a-10 I just finished building. Just having trouble cutting pieces of perfectly good styrene for the PE. Will take a few pictures once I have a few things glued together.

Got a little bit done. Taking things slow to avoid getting frustrated with the tiny PE. This is the repaired instrument panel. the little L shaped part on the left is what had broken off.

Got a few pieces ready to go in the cockpit.

And here's after they have been put in. So far so good. Used a pva glue on the PE to make it a little easier to work with, and less messy. Should be ok since once everything is painted and put together they will never be touched again, so no threat of them being knocked off.

and picture from the other end.

And that's where I'm at at this point. This section is ready to paint, so I'm going to start getting a few more pieces ready for paint. Been pretty bad with judging how much paint to put into the color cup so want to get as much ready for paint before I paint as I can to help avoid as much being wasted. Nice to finally be working on this after having to wait a few extra days to get started on it. Going to try and get some more done tonight, just taking a break to order some pizza and eat.

Not too much bending of PE to be done there Kenny, I think it makes such a difference.

I'll have a pepperoni with pulled pork and jalapenos if you are ordering, thanks. [thumb]

That's a rather.... unique pizza. Just got a boring peperoni and mushroom pizza with extra cheese, and some hot wings.
I agree. The PE does make a difference. First few pieces I think I only had one bend that I had to do. Lot of color PE that I'm holding off on that need a few bends though. Was just working on a set of PE that did need a lot of bends though. A tiny little box that I forgot to take a picture of being one of them. Cut a few more pieces off the sprues for the cockpit, and found some ejector pin marks that I'm going to have to take care of. Planning on having the canopy closed, but I'll know they are there. So that means I'll be taking care of them. These are a little too deep to sand out, so I'll have to fill it some first.

Directions said to start putting together the nose gear bay so pulled those pieces off the sprue. And I found some more ejector pin marks. These were nice and shallow so it just took a little sanding to get rid of them. Can just barely see them in this picture, because my phone seems to like focusing on my mat instead of the actual piece.

So sanded them out, and assembled the bay.

That's as much as I've gotten done so far. Several pieces of PE that required quite a few bends in them that I didn't take a picture of yet, and waiting for the filler to dry on the stick. Found the old episodes of dr who on netflix, so that's been distracting me. They are so ridiculous that they are great. lol

Dr Who....now there's a blast from the past.

What are you using as a filler for the pin marks? Can you get away with just using Plastic Putty, or are you using the green stuff?

You are doing very well. I always forget to take photos, I'll have to make sure I take plenty on my next build (which is not the Spitfire as advertised).

Just got hold of a very unusual model which comes with 86 photo etched parts, so I think I'm going to have fun putting that together.

At the moment all I can say about it is that it is made by Trumpeter. Always wanted to try one of their kits.

Keep up the excellent build.

Thanks. I'm using mr surfacer. they are pretty shallow but still deep enough to where I would be taking too much out if I tried to sand it.

I understand. The Italeri Cockpit, that I am currently building, had so many pins. Still it gave me good practice in fixing them.

You've made me want a pizza now, suppose I will just have to have a big fry-up from the Hotel kitchen....only another 2 hours to go.
