    Well, this will be my progress thread for my 1/32 Hasegawa Dora, which I will most likely be doing in the colours of this bird (top):

    I started on the cockpit last night, I'll post pictures later. I have the Eagle Cals left over, so I may as well use them.

    Thanks Dan, I really like the Yellow on it, hopefully it doesn't act like a tw*t when I go to put it on, like yellow usually does! :lol:

    Thats a real bitch aint it? I noticed it heavily on the yellow on the roundels on my Corsair ,I picked up that painting the area white before hand is a great solution! Do you think you would to do that?

    Thanks guys!

    Yeah Dan, I'll give it a shot. Do you think primer would work as well? I have half a spray can of that stuff.

    EDIT: It's gray by the way.

    There is soooooooooooo much info out there on the net for Dortenmanns Black 1... Alot of reference material for this build....

    Our very own Mr. Wayne Little did this very build himself.... Below are some pics of his Dora, as well as a 2 references for u Cory......


    Oh and BTW, as u can see, the ENTIRE tail is Yellow, not just the rudder..... This has been confirmed...

    I will eventually do this build to match it up with my Dortenmann A-8 I did... Its a frickin beautiful crate.... I cant wait to see how u do with it.... Wayne will be a big help with this build....

    Very nice choice Cory!
    First, that yellow!
    Apply a thin coat of Matt white, NOT grey, as the latter doesn't like yellow! When the white is totally dry, give it a very light rub-down, with fine wet n dry, used wet. When dry, apply a couple of THIN coats of yellow, ensuring the first coat is TOTALLY dry before applying the next. If there are any lumps, bumps runs etc, give them a light rub-down, as above, before the next coat. If possible, it is better to airbrush, but a hairy stick is just as good if all else fails. NOTE:- This yellow 'tactical' paint was often a 'distemper' type of washable paint, so don't be too concerned if it doesn't turn out pristine. The thing to look for is lumps, drags or heavy brush marks, which are a b*st*rd with yellow, as you probably know!
    Second. I've got the pic shown with Wayne's model, and a profile which, although it doesn't have the yellow on it, is otherwise fairly accurate. I think I might have another pic also, plus some plans/drawings and cockpit info, if you'd like them. Give me a shout and I'll e-mail them.
    Cheers,
    Terry.

    I would say the example Wayne completed up above is extremely accurate and researched...

    Thanks for the info guys!

    Dan: Great info, as I didn't realize that the whole tail had remained yellow. Thanks for the profiles!

    Terry: Thanks for the tips for painting the yellow! It was a b!tch to paint on my smaller Dora, hopefully that will help. And I also have that picture Terry, it came with the decals. Thanks for the offer though!

    OK, no probs. Dan's right, Wayne's info will be accurate; the profile I have depicts the machine without the yellow, but mentions in the text that the yellow was added at a later date, or something similar.
