Graphics from Callie are on their way, so with luck, will have them before the Spring Hobby Show, and she'll make her first public appearance!

Re: Top Flite P-39, Gold Edition

Some work on the cockpit details yesterday, not super scale, but at least when people look in the canopy, there's stuff to look at. Once it's finished, need to fuel proof the engine, nose gear and fuel tank areas, then I can re-install all that. Rudder and elevator controls are hooked up as well.

Haven't got a pilot yet, but the P-39 cockpit is ready for one, including a state of the art 1942 radio!

Re: Top Flite P-39, Gold Edition

Just wondering, do you brush or spray the green cockpit interior?

Re: Top Flite P-39, Gold Edition

The vacu-formed parts were sprayed, medium green, while the rest was brushed with medium green. And finally, she's on all gear now!

Re: Top Flite P-39, Gold Edition

It will take some time, but I'm sure I can handle it! lol Will depend on how many students we get this year, I've spent a couple of summers barely touching any of my aircraft, and just instructing. Hopefully others will step up, and share the load.
