Hi guys,

its been a while. But were back. I want to build the P-39D2 of captain Vadim Ivanovich Fadeev of the 16GFAR april 1943. Although not the most colorful P-39, i am very attracted by its simpleness. Fadeev was also a very populair figure with its fellow pilots, having also a beard and called ''Barada"', what means ''Beard''.  My ''weapons of choice'' to build this plane are the following....

Eduard 1/48 Ariacobra P-400 kitno. 8471
Aires 1/48 P-400 Airacobra cockpit set itemno. 4435 (its for the hasegawa, but with some TLC i think i can make it fit)
Quickboost 1/48 P-39N/Q Airacobra engine (its only the sideview, so i think i can get away with the fact its a N/Q type)
Eduard brassin 1/48 P-39 wheels early itemno. 648202
Eduard P-39D/P-400 Airacobra PE set itemno. 49234
SBS P-39 Airacobra propeller set itemno. 48031
AML  Decals Soviet aces in kobras itemno. 48033

I have begon to make the cockpit fit, detailed the wheelbays, thining the wings, cut out the engine acces hatch. I begin now to run in to some things that require assembly and pre-painting before we can go any further. Photo's will follow  Cheesy

Regards,

Remco

Hi Remco,
it looks a good start.
I'll compare the photo of your kit on work to my Hasegawa still in long waiting for building.

Hi Massimo,

Its a bigger job than i had anticipeted. Lots of sanding, dry fitting, scratchbuilding...... But it a cool looking plane. The Hasegawa kit is also as good as the Eduard kit. I have four Eduard P-39 kits and a AMG P-63C kit. Iike the P-39 serie a lot

Hi Remco,
the P-63 is a relatively rare bird, at least in modelling. How is the kit?

The P-63 is indeed a rare bird in the modeling scene. Its actually the Dora Wings kit, but militairized. You can compare it with some limited production kits. Like Modelsvit or Mars models. Quality wise its oke, but some bits are a little clunky. Some resin parts (radio), masking set and a little PE is pressent also.

Hi,
regarding P-63 1/48 AMG (sounds like performace divizion from Mercedes ;-)) here at Czech modelforum https://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=64427&start=30 is one build in progress. I know language does not help very much to you but photos are selfexplanatory.

Seems that excepts dimensions and fitting "challenges" the most visible error is the shape of the fuselage where it connect to cockpit canopy - in reality it is quite flat area:


however this part of the kit is too baggy, it looks like let's say from Thunderbolt.
But yes, in overall shapes it looks like Kingcobra.

Hi Remco,
this look a good building report, but it is still largely uncomplete. It's a think to watch if interested into this type.

Haha, thanks for the support guys! But first we have to build the P-39, so i can see what to expect. Any help on cockpit colors or colors in general is highly appreciated!

Hi Remco,
I think that walkarounds of the P-39 are easily available. Have you found all the photos you need?

Hi,
so let's come back to Fadeev's Cobra.
I know only this photo, showing nothing more than board number 37, dated to April 1943:


Neither prop spinner nor tail is visible, so there are different interpretation of the appearance of this aircraft:







Which one is your favorite?

Hi,
am I wrong, or the position of the red star on the photo seems very low?

Hi Massimo,
I enlarged that photo and added contrast etc. and color lines.
  1. Blue line is a star of standard size and position.
  2. Red line is smaller star and in lower position, and that dark line in panel line.



I would say it is standard star and the rest is a matter of shadows, reflections and quality of the photo.
regards,

I'd go with the middle one for the Olive Drab, the others appear too green.
