NA P-51D "The Enchantress"

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all,

this is my first post there, I hope you will like it :-)

Let me introduce, my name is Tomas, I live in Czech Rep. I´m coming back to the modeling word after 30 years, this is my second model - first was F4U-1D, also Tamiya 1/32. This best scale for my eyes :-)

For this beauty I use some aftermarket parts like Barracuda interior and stencils, HGW belts and dinghy, Eduard PE, The Enchantress stencils from Kits World. MRP and Tamiya colours and some washes Mig and Vallejo.

I started working on this model in January, first on Packard and firewall. As you can see, there is some combination Eduard PE and my wire job. Finally, after mount this to the fuselage I will make a wire and rods connections. 

Any comment welcome!

Same here.  Your images must be under 100 kB each or uploaded to an image hosting site, then post the link to the image in your thread here.

Aaaa.... it´s terrible. Now I upload directly two images, 64kb together. Three images with 90kb together are blocked due to upload limit. But the limit is 0,1Mb.... digital world.

Photos of engine detailing in first post are visable.  No other pictures show in the thread for me.

Thank you for positive feedback, I´m glad you like it! 😊 Next is firewall. It´s look like after oil explosion but on real isn´t so significant 😉

Next step was upgrade of wheel bay. You know it, lot of pipes, wires...  :-) So there are a some building steps. I must say that sometimes I was a little close to being destroyed... :-)IMG_4725_optimized.jpg.bbcaadc28f6a162be95a5441f326e14e.jpg

Hello Tomas, nice update!

The gear bay looks very realistic. I'm curious how you will paint all those details? Do you have some tips?

Hi Markiii,

Thanks! It's not as complicated as it looks. First layer is surfacer on whole bay, next same with final bay colour. Next steps with fine brush from lower level to the top - wires, tubes step by step. Finally I finish some details like tube colour identification, springs. And, of cours last step are oils and washes. 
For me it was much more complicated to stick tubes to the corect position :-) 

Here are some pictures from the building before painting: P2104282_optimized.thumb.jpg.b2031e9c599e9f23f030acfb7967177a.jpg

...and second side. Pulleys are without fairing cables, I will apply them up it after base painting.

Tomas,

Nice job getting the photos fixed so we could see them. Just a great job on the progress

you're making on your build. The engine looks fabulous and the wheel wells are insane. I

wonder how many years of experience do you have in building plastic kits? The results in

what you've shared with us so far are amazing - keep up the excellent work!
