This is my next Whiff...an old P-39, Eduard, 1:48 and naff, really old paintwork...gonna do something dreadful to this one...oh yes...:D

Now you just hold still a moment, this won't hurt at all...well not much...

But daddy, what are you doing with that razor-saw?...

ok ok, I lied... it's gonna hurt!


It's a big, wide world out there...so if it's all the same to you I'll just stay indoors!

Now I've got John Cougar Mellencamp's "Hurts so Good" in my head....I guess every build needs a theme song :)

Looking forward to seeing where this is heading  :thumbsup:

Hmmmmmmmm . . . Do I detect a COIN-type bird coming up?

Hey, with this one, the project didn't start with the cockpit!   :thumbsup:    Somehow I think SEA Green/Green/Tan is going to show up.   

Actually, I like it looks like a bit of courage and a bunch of fun!

Just love cutting up old kits...this one is going to be fantastic, the hairs are standing up on my neck !

Captain Canada

That was a great build as it were....would have looked great hanging up somewhere ! But I do have to wonder what it is you're going to do with it.....

CANADA KICKS arse !!!!

Long Live the Commonwealth !!!
Vive les Canadiens !
Where's my beer ?


COIN? SEA Cammo?...I'm sorry, you must have me confused with somebody who does that kind of thing to Tigercats....no my friends...this is a completely different breed of beast...Now, where did I put the Milliput?

Daddy, what's Milliput? And what are you going to do with it?

Stop squirming or you'll make me mess it up...

Oh?!!?  Here comes the tailpipe! 

Daryl J., guessing again.


Gotta be a jet job - the P-39's a natural.

Watching with interest because I have something planned along the same lines...... :thumbsup:

So are you going turboprop here or full out jet?

If you could rig it out with a four blade prop. al a P-63, she'd look right nice as a turboprop coin bird in some Central or South American air force's arsenal.

I'll be following with intrest.
