1/32 Boeing P 12 E

Recommended Posts

Here is my next airplane project. I primarily build automotive subjects so when it comes to aircraft my skill set may not be that of some better aircraft builders but I still have fun with these builds and I love the history behind so many of these builds.

 

This is a 1/32 scale Hasegawa Boeing P 12 E biplane. It will be pretty much out of the box with added Yellow Wings decals

Looks like a good start.  Keep the progress coming.

Nice progress! That's a nice kit for its age and with new decals should be a real eye catcher.

One word of caution....as I recall, the seam on the bottom of the wings goes through the middle of the ailerons (what a dumb design!) instead of being located on the trailing edge. It makes for some extra work to get it filled and erased, but other than that, the kit should give you no problems. Looking forward to seeing more!

A bit more progress. Fuselage is painted. I still need to add some gloss to the finish. Wings are painted and test fit. Also started working on the engine. I was originally going to build this straight out of the box but even though I'm no expert on aircraft details I felt that some of the details were a bit soft so I decided to access some research and add some extra details. The cleanup on the engine was a labor as a lot of seam lines are in all of the worst places. I also decided to replace the exhaust pieces with styrene tubing as the kit pieces were going to be next to impossible to drill out the ends. Lots of paint details as well as there are so many different colors on the engine. 

So far I'm happy with the progress.
