Great work, Gamera!  That's the kind of detail you would expect to find in a 1/32nd scale model.

Thanks guys! Yeah the detail here is insane. The kit cost me about seventy bucks US but the box is packed to bursting with sprues and Tamiya gives you an instruction manual that's a small book.

I had to wait for the paint I needed to finish the base for my Orion. I love Vallejo Model Color paint for brush painting! Anyway, here's the stand:

And with that I'm calling the thing done!

Thanks for this, I've been optimizing this model for a bit but this group build gave me a much needed kick in the pants to actually build it for real. And yes, I did make some more updates to the model for the next time I build it!

Looks great BL.

I'll get you up when I get to my laptop. 

I finally found a house but the whole closing, inspections, estimates etc are just as high a demand. I have a new kit of my stash. It's a 1/1 scale 1750sq foot house.

I got it up BL.

Thanks for being a part and sorry I haven't been here much. As things start to get back to more normal (June) I'll be here more.

Thanks Gam, I have stuff scattered in three diffrent citys, no preminant address, Idaho plates in Texas and a tiny room (the same one I spent over a year after my transplant) to live out of. I may be moving on the 28th, just to start a remodel. I won't be going to the Nats this year. No time and could use the money for something else.

Painted and preshaded the underside of the P-38 over the weekend.

Jeez sorry Gam, I guess I'm not getting notifiactions again Sad What? about a dozen or more times in the last 4 years. Too tired to try to fight it anymore.

This site just sucks the fun out of trying to run a GB.

Nice looking job on the 38. Looking forward to seeing it come together.

Ohhh, I'm going to pout!!! 

Really, no worries Steve! I assumed you were so busy with the move you'd just missed me. Don't sweat it my friend!!! 

 

I'm looking forward to seeing her come together too. Tamiya printed the paint guide in 1/48th scale so I figured just photocopy the paint guide, transfer to tape, and apply to the model. Eazy- peasy... But she's got so much krap on the sides of the fusilage that I'm having to fit the masks around every air intake etc. It's been fun...

I thought the P-38 was overall olive-drab?  Or bare metal?  What did I miss?

Hey Gary, yeah late war P-38s were over-all bare metal aluminum. The earlier war planes like the P-38G were mostly if not all olive-drab upper surfaces with a neutral grey belly.
