Eduard P38 + Brassin


Recommended Posts

The ZM is due for the spray booth, so it’s time to decide which P38 to build. After the ZM I fancy a challenge and have decided on the Eduard P38. The Tamiya will be a breeze after this. The Academy re-box has fit issues plus shoe horning the exquisite resin cockpit is going to be interesting. With time on my hands (furlough) it’s time to get started......

Had these books for awhile, so good reference.....

Nice choice and a surprise for me passing up the Tamiya kit but I understand your reasoning plus having the Eduard kit in the already in the stash.

Will be following with great interest :popcorn::popcorn:

Thanks Peter, I was getting a little lonely down here......my plan is to still keep certain items from the Eduard boxing for the Tamiya built like the resin wheels and PE u/c elements. The rest of the Brassin will go on to the Academy kit. Having now a much needed resupply of cleaners, thinners etc, I can in parallel carry on with the ZM. The main reason for doing the Eduard was the ZM was such a breeze, I wanted to stretch myself again........only time will tell......a couple of pics of opening things up and adding PE....

Great plan and the PE screens look so good.

This is why I kept posting the NON Large Scale Forum needs to be moved to be just after Armor and aircraft builds - this is a build forum and right now, it's buried where so few of the guys even look. I just don't understand why it was placed at the bottom of the pile, when there is such excellent work being done.

Thanks Peter, I did contact Fran and mentioned about moving this up the menu as well. There seems to be a trend, be cost or space about twins being done in 48th.

So this has taken over with the little bench time I have, the resin is sublime, small at 48th but really nice detail. The separating the casting blocks was tricky but satisfying. So booms complete and now slowly putting the pit together.....

Nice progress Phil. The Brassin cockpits are a gem.

Cheers Rob

Thanks Rob, I was worried nobody would see the build. The cockpit is a amazing for resin, just almost falls together. I’ll put some interior green on tomorrow then it should start to sing a little. The booms went together well. As this only the second Academy I’ve done it’s not to shabby so far......

Ok I spoke to soon, in reading (always a bad idea)......the rudders and fins on the Academy are skewed from the vertical by around 3-5 degrees......and they are.......the fix is cut them off and make them vertical.....:blink:........let’s see when I get to that stage........

Sorry Phil...  didn't see you down here!  I've done a couple cellar builds down here, too.  So, I'll try to remember to scan this far down.  Those PE screens look great, and I bet all of the resin detail will look sweet painted up.

 

Strappin' in!

Found you! I agree that this should be moved up the menu a bit to make it easier to find. I am not really familiar with this aircraft, so will be nice to see it come together, good start Phil.

Thanks Kev, the P38 is iconic. The P38 and P47 were the first 8th AF bomber protection.......glad to have you onboard....

Terrific work on the front office - a lot of work but the results will be well worth all the hard work. I'm watching, following and enjoying.

Completely agree, the forum (Admins and Mods) need to move the non LSM builds from the bottom of the pile, so more of the guys will see the work.  I've been a big proponent of this since coming back to the forum and understand that moving a sub forum would be an expense. So why can't non LSM builds just be place in LSM Works in Progress? Loads of wonderful work being missed for sure. LSM has so many varied types of builds anyway and the scales are all over the spectrum. :construction:

Keep 'em comin

Thanks Martin , the only two fighter groups in the UK with 38’s were the 20th and the 55th before they transitioned to other models. The 20th  were based only around 30 miles from me. I might just depict an H model from this group..

Ok, so this is not going to get the P51 finished but.........had a some time at the bench in between furlough, working part time and decorating the house......so the cockpit is just laid in at the moment. If you compare turbochargers the sublime resin from Eduard and the stock Academy, chalk and cheese........pushing on.....whole a day at the bench tomorrow as it’s a national holiday......
