Good to see her in color Phil. It's such a beautiful plane and your OD looks spot on. I have the Academy boxing with a lot of extras from Brassin 

Thanks Rob. The Academy is not as much as a nightmare as you read everywhere. Be careful though on the u/c bays and get them in the right boom. If the Academy was the only one on the block I’d be happy. I also have the Tamiya one and I am going to use the decals from the Academy. I also kept some of the Brassin for the Tamiya build such as wheels and other bits. If you want I’ll give you a list…

Great looking paintjob on the P-38 Phil! The shiny look is the big advantage of Xtracolor! 

Thanks Kai, it’s been long tome since I used Xtracolor. I put a decal down albeit a Cartograf one and I looks as if it’s been sprayed on. Xtracolors faded olive drab is brilliant…….

I’m calling this one finished. ……it’s not the Tamiya build and fit but does have some lovely AM……..Learnt a lot with this one and there are still warts that jump out at me. The compressors apparently caused the white streaking so tried to replicate that. Actually for the first time ever tried panel washes, not sure how convincing they are though. Xtracolour faded olive drab, Cartograf decals and enamel Matt varnish……..hope you like it’s been a learning curve again but pleased with the outcome……..don’t believe all you read about the Academy base kit……

Phil

She is across the line and looking mighty good - so very well done as you had to deal with a number of issues during the build. Air brush work looks flawless, as well as the panel line washes.

Keep 'em comin

Thanks Peter much appreciated, the wear around the cockpit and forward booms could have been better, I should have had aluminium underneath and chipped the surface…….one for next time…….I still have the Tamiya P38 to do so I’ll give it a go……..this is my first attempt at weathering on aircraft……..

Mighty fine work, Phil!  Have you experimented much with 'sponge' chipping?  It's a great alternative when you don't want to paint a coat underneath your topcoat.

Thanks Gaz, much appreciated, I haven’t tried the sponge technique, I’ll pencil it in for the next project….

For your first shot out of the box with weathering, mighty nice for sure.

Keep 'em comin

Peter, much appreciated ……I hope it’s subtle enough but gives a hint, that was the intention 😁….

Great looking P-38 Phil, congratulations. I'm very pleased to hear (and see), that the Academy kit is doable and not only this, you achieved a very beautiful result here. Painting is flawless and I'm inspired to start mine sooner than planned. I have an Academy with goodies (later model in NMF) and the Tamiya waiting for me.

Cheers Rob

Thanks Rob, very appreciative of your kind words. Definitely leap into the Academy as a precursor for the Tamiya. I made the mistake of putting the wrong u/c bays in the wrong booms, be careful. The rear canopy is needs a little sanding to seat right, mine doesn’t. For once the painting came out as I wished, even though I sprayed the spinners 4 times……….also put a lot of weight in the nacelles and nose…….
