Top wing dihedral cut and very rough fuselage.

Time for primer to be applied.The P-39 lends itself to many paint schemes most of them olive drab plus identifying colours.

Thank you Barry. Production is rather slow this winter. Here is the latest addition to my WWII ID + fleet.

P.S. I am eyeing a Devastator for this series.!!!!!
The collection of ID + stands at 14 so far. Just another 76 to go.

Comparison with other WWII aircraft the P-39 appears to be smaller than most.

Again a very nice model Lou. But I especially like the prop. Have you ever given any consideration to cutting away part of the plastic to make it possibly even more realistic? I had thought of this but that's as far as I got.

Three more on the bench. A Devastator, Mosquito and a Wildcat all in WWII ID +. Drawings were taken from the WWII ID plan section on SMM. http://smm.solidmodelmemories.net/Gallery/index.php?cat=13 I did not realize that the Devastator wing was almost a big as the twin engine Mosquito. Regardless, templates have been printed and glued to cardboard. The Wildcat templates have been cut out and the basic blocks marked and cut out.

You know Lou, I really wish you would just write a how to book! It would make it easier for the rest of us.

Moving a bit further along. Most parts are just sanded with 100 grit paper so far.
