    **** FINISHED: 1/32 P-39Q - Mediterranean Theater of Operations
    User Name: al49
    Name: Alberto
    Category: Intermediate
    Kit: Special Hobby
    Scale: 1/32
    Accessories:
    CMK resin set 5030 for Undercarriage, CMK resin set 5031 for Armament set, CMK resin set 5029 for engine
    EDUARD p.e. set 32171 Aircobra exterior, HGW safety belts, MONTEX Mask
    Specific decals for those Italian markings aren't existing, so they will be either home made or subcontracted.

    The idea was to replicate one of those P-39 used by Italian co-belligerent aviation in 1944-45

    Here following the pictures

    And BTW.. your pictures are very large. And this is the reason for the slow uploading here methinks. Please resize them down to 800-900 pixels in the width before posting here.

    Many thanks for the message.
    In facts my pictures have been reduced in size already but of course isn't enough, I will consider that next time.
    Cheers

    OK.

    Just for example I have saved your uploaded pic as the first one in the post #2. The Irfanview says the pic is of 2283x1628 pixels and although it is of 336KB file, it gets 10.64MB of RAM. It is really quite much. I resized it down to 900x642 pixels and got the file of 336KB but 1.65MB of getting RAM only. I think the difference is quite significant. I would say 1/6.

    Not for the judges, just for myself and anybody willing to have a look, I post a few pictures concerning the w.i.p. of my little diorama.
