    A credit to you Steve! its looking great mate. Your hardwood is a much finer grain than balsa wood, but an old aero modelling technique to fill wood grain is to mix in talcum powder with aero dope (thin varnish basically) until you have a smooth paste, the talc fills the grain and give a perfect surface, it might save your some sanding on your next project. looking forward to seeing this one finished.
  2. F-104G Marineflieger

    Wow! perfect paint job
  3. Great job, Alphaflight kits are about as far removed from a Tamigawa kit as you can get short of a vacform, credit to you!

    All of the above! That's one very nice Scooter!

    For fillets and non structural gap filling consider Perfect Plastic Putty https://www.deluxematerials.co.uk/en/scale-plastics/87-perfect-plastic-putty-5060243901095.html lovely stuff to use for gaps between two surfaces, dries fast , sands easily and water clean up.

    Hi Reconciler, Sadly no Strikemaster, but the GR3 is impressive! as are the examples of ergonomic gymnastics (British aircraft cockpits) that they have on display, some rare items for this part of the world, 2 seat Hunter cockpit and B2 Canberra. Also have a 2 seat & single seat Vampire, Provost , BAE Hawk, SkyHawk and some lovely vintage gliders and civil aeroplanes.

    Hi David, The Aussie decals, on the wing wouldnt bed down and eventually lifted, (even after gloss coat to seal them) but they were old so maybe that was the issue. I had to mask & airbrush them then needed to do the same for the fuselage to match and weather them also. If you build the Cat dont forget the spar well worth it for piece of mind, see my build pics. Cheers Stephen
