As I had said in some of my previous posts, following my project to restore or even to build vintage models which bring me back good memories, now I went to this 1955 original Revell mold of P-39 Airacobra.
My oldest brother Pedrinho (82 now) h[...]
Built in 2015.
Eduard kit, painted with Gunze and Tamiya paints, the Azure is from Model Master.
Some discussion about the camo paints of these planes. As far as I know they were initially built for and delivered to the Brits but not liked the[...]
From the limited Edition Air-A Cutie boxing. A fairly easy kit to build for the most part. Much easier to build than the Eduard P-400 but with less detail (I had built an Eduard P-400 Profipack kit over a decade ago), but if I had to choose I [...]
Another model goes to my shelf. This time, a design that appears at competitions quite sporadically, namely the P-39 Airacobra. The model itself is quite nice, but I added Eduard plates, HGW belts, Master barrels and Eduard exhaust pipes. Markin[...]
I had no problem building these three 1/48 scale P-39 models as they were all "O.O.B." Like the yellow racer, I had no instrument panel dials nor any of the Waldron p.e. stuff.
I used Tamiya paints and the kit decals. The end result was: "I had[...]
This 1/48 scale model is made by a different company than what I wrote in my bare metal P-39 story yesterday. I liked the pre-cut mask's for the windscreen, canopy and the door's as they fit perfectly. The modeler, (ME) had the option to finish [...]
This is "eduards" 1/48 scale model kit. I built it right out of the box and used the kit decals. I added Waldron belt buckles with some home made paper straps. I used different colors of Tamiya paint.
I liked the model so well that I bought two[...]
I have had a passion for the P-39 since I was a child, when my oldest brother (80 old now) bought the Revell P-39 kit in the 1960s. That was indeed the first kit I saw in my life, and I have fond memories of that time.
The Academy's P-39 D / Q [...]
Used Ultracast seat, Vector .30 cal. gun barrels, Eduard Zoom cockpit and some resin from the Aires set. 20 mm canon barrel from brass tubing. Color of Eagles and Pollyscale paints used as well as Tamiya weathering powder. Note on the paint s[...]
My completed last mouth P-39N Aircobra in Soviet Air Force markings.
Model goes together very well, no real problems with the fit or so.
As profi pack kit I added PE parts in the cockpit and used masks for canopy. In addition to t[...]
