My plan with this build is to just go the way it takes me.

 

First up is I do actually plan to use some after market.

 

 

Some initial images.

 

 

And then I let the voices guide me.

 

 

Even a little off the wing.

 

 

Overall there are some things I am not happy with and some I am.  Happy with the work in the cockpit so far.  The detail seems to resemble the pictures I have.  I am however still not sold on the frames.  The kit is the Grey.

 

 

All comments, critique, and criticism are encouraged.

Looking good so far, Joe! Why the big cutouts in the wings? I'm assuming you're putting some guns and ammo in there, but those cutouts look way too big for only that.

Impressive start Joe, and also curious about those big holes in the wings.

You are all very kind.  I am humbled.

 

There is a fuel cell as well as some pipping in the wing that will be shown.

I just recently completed this kit, with those decals. I built "Old Exterminator" ... Albeit not nearly the detail you're going into. The decals come with a lot of carrier film, depending on which you use, but they are very easy to work with. Where did you find the resin engine? I wanted one for mine, but could not locate one. Keep up the good work. I'll be following this one.

Many thanks for looking in.  The engine comes from Engines and Things.

Just a quick update to this point.

 

Work on the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E continues with the mocking up of the engine, firewall, and instrument panel.  This is just roughed but the radio equipment will be placed this way in the end.  Much still has to be done.  Wiring, plumbing, and assorted smaller parts need to be fashioned yet.  

 

For this update however the engine received a bit of detail work.

 

 

A bit on the firewall and the rear of the instrument panel.  Much more needs to happen here.  

 

 

And finally the mock up.

 

 

Moving slowly towards the moment I can spray some color.

Well folks time for another update.  

 

This time with a little color.

 

Now before I get into that let me set the background a bit.  Trying to avoid the overspray into the sections that have been cut open I plan to get the exterior of at least the cut side painted.  I also need to do this prior to installing some of the bits and pieces.  

 

So with that in mind here we go.  The over all interior had been painted with Stynlrez Metal primer.  Once dry Model Master Acrylic Zinc Chromate has been sprayed into the area to the rear of the cockpit.  Model Master Interior Green is sprayed into the cockpit area and the engine area is left with the Metal primer.  In the photos you will notice I did begin placing some of the easier detail parts.

 

 

Next up is the exterior.  First was a coat of Stynlrez Black Primer.  Over this using the Badger Extreme 105 I spray the same Zinc Chromate.  Now at this point let me tell you that I truly hate Model Master Acrylics.  I have had zero luck getting them to spray decent.  This time was no different.  

 

 

I am hoping that by doing this layer and then spraying light coats of the top colors I can give the aircraft a faded look with just a hint of the primer coat underneath.

 

Now as a bonus for this post I can also show the painted engine.

 

 

So with this being to this point now I can concentrate on the exterior and get that out of the way.  I believe I will get it all painted as then I will not have to try to get the same mixtures.

 

As always all comments, critiques, and criticism are encouraged.

Well folks it has been an interesting week but moving forward.

 

Here is an update on the Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E.  

 

This week is all about the radio and the interior.  To prep for that I needed to get some initial paint on the cut side and then while I had the airbrush out I sprayed some on the uncut side.

 

 

 

After that dried for a couple of days on to the radio.

 

 

Next up is to continue the interior with more work in the cockpit.  As for the radio equipment I am pleased with how it looks.  

 

 

All comments, critiques, and criticism are encouraged.

Your cut-aways and attention to detail are amazing as always.  I for one would never get to that stage,and attempt it, even in 1/24, let alone anything smaller.
