Classic airframes 1/48 P-12e


Recommended Posts

I wanted a little bit of a challenge after a Tamiya 1/72nd P-51

I got exactly what I asked for. Challenges

Vallejo Olive Drab and Tamiya rattle-can Camel Yellow colors were the only simple items. 


The basic parts all had flash,All need some sort of work

Struts needed trimming and pins inserted for support. Landing Gear parts were all needing trimmed and adjusted and I think I still missed the mark.


Rigging was all steel wire to simulate the metal braces


I will say the resin engine cylinders needed minimal cutting.

I did add Albion tubing and copper plug wires


Tons of stuff but just posted Final results

Despite any challenges, your build looks the part! I've built the F4B4, which is essentially the same kit and had pretty much the same experiences you did. It may be a lot harder to build than the old Aurora/Entex 1/48 kit, but the detailing inside and out is much more to scale. Your skills conquered all in the end. Congrats, and thanks for sharing!


GIL :cool:

That's a great job on the rigging and turnbuckles.
