    Real : Bill
    Category : Still somewhere in the middle
    Entry : U.S. Captured Jack
    Kit : Tamiya 1/48th scale..... OTB! Maybe some scratch build stuff. Gonna keep this one simple.

    Easier to start a new thread for this one. Only have a few pictures to work from, but another odd one for the cabinet. U.S. markings from another kit. Only done a little bit from the other thread. All silver aluminum on this one, U.S. markings. Pretty simple, yah right!

    That'll be a unique looking bird Bill! Does that kit have raised panel lines? I made a Jack about 20 years ago but I've forgotten who the kit mfg. was

    Thanks for that Evan, additional information is always welcomed. This is a bare metal finish is it not????

    You are right Wayne, I have no more time for any miscief at all.

    So now, if this is an IJN aircraft, would IT's wells be the transparent blue?????? Like I have already painted them????????????????

    As I stated in my Zero post, if it doesn't Need to be this color, don't paint it this color. It applies pretty thick to get the color even. It needs to be seriously masked. I can't paint over it cuz it's so thick, and can't remove it, or don't want to spend the time trying.

    I sailor on.

    Been slaving on the others, but have done the painting in the cockpit and "aged" it by scraping off color. The instrument panel is a very simple one, flat plastic and a clear decal. I have sprayed the panel silver, then brushed on the panel color, then after drying scratched off some of the color with my trusty wire brush, Future coated it and applied the clear printed panel decal. I gave it a generous coat of Future and then trimmed the decal after it was all dry. I can button up the fusey pretty soon now, and hope it's done by the end of the GB time.

    Okay, finished the cockpit, well, added the decal. Picture attached. I have the sides of the fusey together now and am cleaning up the seams. I'll spray some paint on some of the panels to give different texture to give color to give it a "used" look. The forgiving thing on this one is it is overall one color, bare metal!!!!!!!

    I sailor on.
    Now if I can get a couple of days off next week to concentrate on the important things in life, I may get them all done!.
