    Hello dear friends and colleagues in this beautiful hobby.

    About a month ago I bought this model to a collector of old models. And my desire to continue enjoying my build aircraft of the Second World War, I always look for free time to construct and implement the many tips and techniques seen.
    I have been able enjoy and learn from some of the wonderful works You guys do in your models.
    I await your enthusiastic participation, experience, expertise and feedback on this my SECOND WORKBENCH :mrgreen:, to keep learning and enrich the visits. I'm taking on par with my Nakajima.

    I love this powerful representative USAAF aircraft

    It is a very old kit, but is in very good condition. In my youth I would sure armed, but in my planes of WWII, I was immersed in 1/72 scale !!:lol:

    If you remember some details to consider estimates VikingBerserker and Andy, I'm all ears. :idea: :shock: :idea:

    A first step: Detailing the bombs to make them more consistent with the reality slimming tail.

    I'll keep the light sight and see how to improve it later.
    I cut a little the front of the cockpit to get a better look ...

    plastic kit is very thick ...

    ... so I gave the task to thin with the Dremel and make the most realistic appearance.

    I leave you with an overview of this first step.

    Good stuff so far. I used this kit earlier this year, for a small diorama called 'Bridge Buster'.

    Hi all, after some absence, I'll make up time ...
    During the detailed rocket launchers I found interesting details and a little alarming !! :shock:

    This was a beautiful picture that became my reference to improve the piece.

    [​IMG]

    The model brings a poor detail of the rocket launchers.

    [​IMG]

    So to make the adjustments ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    ...:lol: everything was going great until instructed, then I noticed that something was wrong ...:-k

    Following the silhouette of the paper (left green circle), put the piece on the instructions (green right circle) in the position it would go.

    [​IMG]

    Previously I followed the indications to put the pieces of the ends in place.
    (the rear cover of rocket launchers right - green circles - and left ends with holes to detail)

    [​IMG]

    :evil: Now came the alarming error in the instructions !! :evil:

    1. If you look at the last picture, the longer end of the rocket launcher pointing backwards.

    2. This would make the output of the rocket is nearly the same distance from the guns of the wings.

    [​IMG]

    3. Looking at reference photo, the strap indicated in red circle made me see that the position indicated by the instructions of rocket launchers, is the other way around, and reversing the direction and I would stay in the correct position and distances! !

    [​IMG]

    ... so rotated through 180 ° the pieces !! ....

    And now if it looks like they should be. :lol:

    [​IMG]

    Well, ...:rolleyes: I want to practice how to make my own adjustments, isn´t ? :idea:, so thanks to the error not seen it in time, I give myself to the task of reversing the ends stuck in advance to correct them.
    Let talk the pictures !! :arrow: :idea:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ... known technique to join the pieces ...:idea:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    We can see on the left the original part according to the instructions and corrected right piece !!
    Only than in the instructions pretend that rockets shoot back !! #-o

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ... thus were left ... and only a little putty and sanded

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    But this will be at a future meeting.

    Thank you for your visits and much more for your comments and feedback.

    See you soon !! :thumbup:

    Looking good. But not sure if it wouldn't be enough to attach the entire launchers conversely . I had seen a such mistake somewhere before... the Revell 1/72 P-51B/C methinks.

    You're right Wojtek. :idea:

    If I had not joined before the ends as directed, would have saved a lot of work, but I trusted to follow the arming sequence in this first stage.
    I had never seen such an obvious error in instruction sheets !!

    I'll have to be more careful hereafter when reading and reviewing instructions. (lesson learned)

    Maybe for someone serves the experience for future projects :scratch:. Even so it was fun to practice my skills. :lol:

    Saludos amigo.:salute:

    Good work spotting the error in the instructions - it seems to happen quite often in recent re-released kit from Revell Germany.
    However, not only have they made that error, but the triple tubes were not mounted on the bomb pylons anyway !
    Check the photo of the real thing - they were mounted onto hard points on the wing, inboard of the pylons.

    For here again :lol:, thanks for your views, suggestions and comments. :arrow: :idea:
    Continuing with this beautiful project, I try to give a new identity to this engine; and the landing moats and cockpit

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ... make the holes for the cabling ...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    ... the orifice where will go the lower lamp

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Join the wings. We can see the machine guns of the wings are still the Kit ones ..

    [​IMG]

    ... but I have six pieces enhanced with hypodermic needles READY. (near the end and I will put replacing the plastic)

    [​IMG]

    In the hole in the lower lamp I placed an aluminum foil before attaching the wings. (Then I'll see how to do to detail it and make it as real as possible - suggestions are welcome -)

    [​IMG]

    I leave you with this little forward, hoping the new size of the photos to see them improve quickly. Thanks for your recommendations.

    Soon I still have more progress and I appreciate your visits and time taken to leave comments.

    Ánimo colegas !!! :salute:
