Eduard P-47D Thunderbolt "Dottie Mae" WIP

I know that camera can change the color, but cockpit color on my screen seems to be more Olive drab.

Indeed it is, no screen dis-orientation, but it's really not the right color. I'm at the moment in doubt to repaint the cockpit.

Excellent work Danny

Thank's Mate :thumbsup2:  :thumbsup2:

 

Ok, last day's i've bin really busy doing modeling. I work on two subjects at the time, something that isn't mehmmm.gif hmmm.gif .........who am i ????innocent.gif mental.gif

 

That said, today i finished the P-47 "Dottie Mae" cockpit. I used all the pe that was in the box available which gave the cockpit a nice extra detail.

 

Ok let's look at some photo's. First i was not so happy with the cockpit color, but at the end, i think it turned out rather fine.

I also did some wiring behind the IP.

When i dry-fitted the cockpit into the fuselage i noticed something i never noticed before. I knew Hasegawa kit's are quality, but when i did put the two fuselage half's against each other, the cockpit dropped right into place and the two fuselage half's stayed in place, without glue or tapesmile.png .........you know guy's, i like that when such a thing happens.

That has gone together nicely. Far better than the Trumpeter version does - they have the spine as separate parts which just creates seams and poor fit where you don't want it.

 

Can you actually see any of your IP wiring in there? The fit looks lovely and snug but not a lot to be seen.

I think it will be barely visible once the windscreen is in place.

No black humour, but Jeroen is correct. I had been burned out after doing long drawn projects without even a chance of finishing one within a reasonable timescale. To get the juices flowing again I got myself the Hasegawa P-40E. And it has given back my mojo and enjoyment in modelling. I have been looking at Danny's build and the P-47 has a similar style as the P-40. I intend to build one myself after the Warhawk is finished.

Looking great Danny, you have really got it up to speed.

Cheers

That's great Cees. Indeed, a nice kit can bring back the pleasure of building it. Same story here, after my Tamiya Corsair build, i started the Trumpeter MIG 23. But the nose cone problems kept building up so i started to lose the interest, until i casted the first resin nose cone, and my P-47 felt in my hands the same week, i got my pleasure in building back. Now i work on two different subjects...........crazy isn't it :wtf:
