1/32 Hasegawa P-40E Weathering Begun 17 Jan 2019 23:19 #38

Ok friends a post with two objectives.

First:

I have begun the weathering on the 1/32 Hasegawa P-40E. Using both a cheap set of oils and Abteilung 502 paints.

I want to give this build a finish that suggests a story of an aircraft that has seen some hard use but is still airworthy. The aircraft was based out of India and supported flights over the Burma hump.











Now the second objective is the quality of the pictures. I have spent quite a bit of time over the last four or five days trying to dial in a better quality picture. These are the latest in the test.

Please all comments, critiques, and criticism are encouraged.

Nice streaking effects Joe but you have the perpendicular to the centerline of the aircraft suggesting the aircraft has been parked tail high. The streaking should be at an angle to the centerline.
I told you photobucket sucks...

Well crap. Thanks MP, truly. That one really just avoided me. I have done that on every bird I have weathered. Sadly for this one I had put a coat or two of flat over those before I started the other streaking. But I have filed it away. Again thank you.

1/32 Hasegawa P-40E Finished 20 Jan 2019 23:29 #41

Well all good things must come to an end.

This is the finished Hasegawa 1/32 P-40E.

Let me recap.

-Scratchbuilt interior minus seven kit parts, one resin engine, and one resin seat.
-Scratchbuilt tail wheel assembly.
-Scratchbuilt wing framing.
-Scratchbuilt .50 cals.
-After market decals.

All told way to long to finish. But I will take it.











Again the pictures are much too faded but this time I know why. There are some issues/omissions, glaring to me. The ones I did not fix are the ones that would require me to tear the build apart and start over.

Thank you for looking in.

Overall looks pretty good Joe. Only thing that kind of stands out to me is that the open side of the fuselage looks like it is missing something. If you added the stringers to that side it would make a big difference and make it look less like something is missing.

It should be possible to just add the stringers to that side without too much trouble and would give it some depth on that side yet still show the interior.

I had thought about that but just wasn't sure. That side is however missing something, the hydraulic system. One of the things that glares to me when I look at the pictures.
