Hi mates, the Yak is finished so I jumped right into a new build: a really nice looking kit from G.W.H - the P-61. Isn't she the most beautiful plane ever? :-)
No wood this time, just a lot of black paint... she's much bigger than I expected!



Started with the cockpit(s). And there is a lot of it, lol. I wil build this kit OOB and just adding a little scratch building where necessary. In case of the pit a added some missing struts under the canopy and the entry hatch at the bottom...















Really enjoying the build so far; great details and good fit. Hope you enjoy it too:-)

Edit: just realized that I started this WIP in the wrong section. Had someone any idea how to correct this?

Edit: never mind, found it :-)

Great work so far Fabian, did you scratch the belts? They look fantastic! The detail in there is superb and you've brought it all our brilliantly. G.W.H certainly seem to put out some nicely detailed kits.
Subscribed. [smile]

Thank you Pete and Simon. The seat belts come with the kit, a small PE set. No Eduard needed for this one :-)
The different gauges are provided by decals. Quite some work to put them on one by one and the wouldn't set "into" the gauges. Finally settled them down with a light brush of Tamiya extra thin cement - worked perfectly.

I love the P-61 also and this looks like a great kit. Wonderful work on the cockpit. Looking at the photos I was amazed at the attention to detail in the weathering and work. Sets a very high standard.

Oh yes, at long last a P61 build (can't wait to start on mine, I have the Revell version).

Great start Fabian and you are right, it is a beautiful plane. Did this kit have any resin in the box along with the PE, or Masks for the mass of glass.

First of all: thanks. Glad you like it so far ;-). But a have to admit that the kit on it's self is really easy on the eye, so it's harder to screw this up than making a nice looking interior, lol.
I used Vallejo brown wash on the interior and silver dry brushing for a used look.
There comes no resin with the kit but there are masks voor all the glass work. I'm not sure if I use them, because I read they don't fit that well and to be honest they look "strange", like white plastic stickers... Will see about that and post some pictures when I get there :-).
Next mini build will be the engines. If they turn out nice I maybe cut the engine cover open - if I dear ;-)

That's a scary thing to watch, isn't it? lol

That is really looking amazing Fabian! Far superior to that old Monogram kit. So far I am in awe. All those details! Just sweet as pie this one is.  [smile]

LOL! @everyone!
I love canopy masks! Especially for the WWII birds. Those canopies have more framing that the Louvre (yeah, boom,boom!) [wink]
Might pay to get some Eduard masks if the G.W.H. ones are no good Fabian. I have very limited experience with them still, but the ones for the Spit were a godsend. [smile]
Great work though, very much looking forward to seeing this one coming together.

That is tempting, but decided to build this one OOB - except a little additional styrene, wires, tape... ;-). Maybe to save some € for a little diorama, don't know yet.
