Tamiya P-47 23 Sep 2019 20:43 #1

Up next is Tamiya 1/48 P-47 done up as Snortin Bull.

Had a procedure done on my lower back last Wednesday and though I was not gonna be able to work on my models. While I'm still stiff in some areas I can still manage to work on my models, so here are some interior pics.

Thanks Christian. I really can't bend over to work on tedious seatbelts or cut the PE from the fret. So it gets no seatbelts as of now. Causes too much discomfort.

That instrument panel is looking nice along with the other parts. :thumbsup

I know how back problems can cause trouble, hope you get yours all settled back down so you can enjoy setting at the bench. :zen :zen

I am trying to get a good start on the new Tamiya P-38E. First thing I ran into was the almost featureless instrument panel. I am so used to German aircraft and PE panels that it stalled me right there. Did some research over the weekend and turns out the panel on it was pretty flat and featureless. The instruments mount from behind so there is just a ring around it. So I will go and try at it again in a day or so. It is still too flat with the dials at the same level as the panel, but I will try and go for it. :hmmm

Very nice indeed, as Christian says, so good to see the cockpit in the (correct) darker green. The Tamiya P-47 is one of my favourite kits ever... haven't built one for about three years, must be time to do another but not before Christmas.

Keep the updates coming, matey. :v

Thanks all, I forgot how good these Tamiya kits are. Last time I built this kit was 2008. That's too long in my opinion for such a great kit.

Thanks for all the well wishes with my back, hopefully I am on the mend for the better.

Nice cockpit work. Lean over the bench? My don't do is to work too long standing up leaning over the bench. Good for a back episode every time. Good luck with your back issues.

Beautiful!

They need to make adjustable table/benches/workspaces for all us old cripples. :coolio

I have a taller table and an adjustable chair, but it is still a pain, and don't get me talking about spray booth heights!

I hear ya Barny on the paint booth. I need to build a custom stand to bring it up higher.

I had my own bone marrow aspiration injected into my 3 lower disc to see if it will help with ongoing issue i am having. Was not a fun experience i can tell you that much.

Anyway, back to my build. Doing the dry brushing technique again.
