    A nice rendition but i don;t like the paint chipping on the wing walks, it is patchy and overdone, i think you need to tone it down a bit, still possible even at this stage.

    Thanks Guys and Happy Easter to all..
    Marco the timber looking base is not fixed to the proper base Very Happy , its just for the photos
    Brian, I know about the scratches, dont look that convincing, but from the photos that I have, that area of the plane was highly weathered ...

    Re base.......Marko tghid lili melha lol! I'm not gonna say that I KNEW, but from the pics it really looks the terrain is PROPPED UP on the base, so that's why I didn't say anything Evil or Very Mad

    Re scratches.......Jes you can always try to tone them down with some burnt umber/black wash like Brian wisely observed/mentioned/suggested as they are a bit stark if not overdone Twisted Evil

    Nice job on the 39. I agree, the wing walks might be a little bit heavily chipped, if this is to take place in the South Pacific or the CBI, the paint jobs there to a pretty heavy abuse, especially earlier in the war when they were short on fighter and they received heavy use. The 39 also had car doors on each side so they would walk on the wings differently than they would on other fighters.

    This plane was based in Italy 44 , one of the Tuskegee Airecobras (Red Tails)...now I am planning to built the P-47 of the same bunch...
    the excess chipping has been sorted...and when I have time I take other photos , replace the ones above and make the posts look daft... Very Happy
    at the moment I am working on a Super Sabre 1: 48...biggest challenge yet...using Monogram kit, rescribing it all, plus replacing cockpit, wheel wells, afterburner etc etc...a nightmare...(I have also the Trumpeter one, but it is shite, and inaccurate in so many things, that not worth building)...if there is anyone interested I am willing to part from it for £ 15 ...

    Marco, did you rescribe it? Even the Trumpeter toolling is more recent, the Monogram kit is still better, few things need to be corrected, one of them is the fuel tanks, too small ..they need to be extended...1 item I dont have aclue how to improve are slats mechanism..those in the kit are poor and the Eduard set is too weak...in Malta I have a B 17 1:48 Monogram...I will spend my time down there rescribing it..happy days...
