P-38 Lightning 2200mm scale scratch build


I just started a new scratch build project of P-38L.
First I need to make a 3D model of it, then I'll start to make basic construction and drawings. I'd like to have all the drawings in this year and start the build immediately after finishing the Wildcat project.
I'm still not sure whose airplane I'll make. Here are many options but I still have a lot of time to decide about it.
I'm thinking about the H version as well.

Guys, do you have some idea about camouflage of L or H version?


Well, here is a couple of pictures of my 3D model building.

This one will be in scale 1:7
It's about 2,2m wingspan.
I changed my mind and In the end I'm going to make version H.
I'm going to use two electric motors 5060 and thinking about baterries now.

So, here are some pictures about my plane construction.
I designed the Fowler's flaps mechanism and I'm really currious about it.
The fuselage is amlost done, but still have a few construction problems. I think I'll do that.


I'm thinking about CG I'm not sure where is it on this plane.


any ideas


cheers

Well, I'm still working on 3D model of my P-38. Some parts are completely finished.
I can't wait to start the build.
I just made the Hispano M1 gun for fun last evening. Now I'm waiting for colors, then I'm gonna finish this beautiful device.

4 Brownings and 1 Hispano are almost done.
I made unobtrusive weathering on them.

Very nice subject. Im sure with your skillset it will be a piece of art like your F4F.

I really like the Hispano M1 gun you made. I will have to make a 1/10 scale Hispano HS404 for my Dornier Do24k flyingboat.

Keep up the good work. . .

Cheers,

Bart

This is another thread that needs to move to the Electric Scale forum to get the attention it deserves. Very nice.

But by having it on his blog, he has control of it if somebody gets obnoxious. I hope Josef won't mind, but I just put a link to here in that thread...

I'm gonna move this thread there when I start the build.
I'm still working on 3D model. I'd like to make it more precise than the Wildcat and fix all problems before I start to cut the first part.
