  1. Greetings I truly enjoyed this model build . The project needed a little modeling skills but the kit is quite nice. This is the aircraft of Lt. Heinz Ewald, June 1944 The markings came from the Kit decals and a Kagaro Pamphlet "Aircraft Aces 3" Used Gunze Paints except for the final finish using Testors dull-coat and Semi-Gloss decanted from Rattlecans Used Barracuda Resin for Gun Blisters, Oil cooler cover and underwing gun pods. Aftermarket cloth seat-belts from HGW, I also used the Uschi red dot wing stencils, they were great EZ Line and Invisible thread for Antennas Took a little work to get the props and spinner correct agin with help from Barracuda Prop alignment jig Thanks for Viewing Comments always welcome Bill

    Thank You All Very Much. Rigging was a challenge ,but a few beers and seemed to steady up. (I wish) Cheers Bill PS..Question to all...Does a Beufighter belong in the Battle of Britain collection??? Your opinions Please ? Thanks
  5. This is the Airfix Kit and it was fun. Two toned scheme ...light and dark greens and browns. Decals from Hannants and they worked great, Xtradecals... Battle of Britain. SBS Resin engine....Very nice and very hard to see. Steel Wire for Bracing, EZLine for antenna. Photo-etched seatbelts,drilled out gun barrels Loved the shiny spinner and don't care if its correct for BoB. Looks cool Last photo shows the cross arms I almost forgot. Thanks For Looking Cheers Bill

    Thank You Gentlemen for your comments I have completed the "Thud" with the addition of the F.O.D. Covers Cheers Bill
  10. Greetings This is a classic kit and one of the best representations of this aircraft . I was stationed at MacConnell AFB,Kansas in the 70's and got to watch them fill the sky. This aircraft has Kansas markings from that period and is a F-105F backdated from the kit F-105G. Aftermarket was Resin Seats, Metal Main Gear,MV Lenses for Landing lights, and Master Pitot. Paints were "what we have on hand"..Gunze Dark Green, Testors Acrylic Light green, Vallejo Brown and Humbrol Light Grey, over-coated by Testor Rattle Can Dullcoat (decanted). Had to go outside for the Photos because the model is quite Large . Reason for two different backrounds. Used Uschi Powders on Speed Brakes exhaust petals Really great kit of this Very Large "Fighter" Aircraft. Cheers Thanks for Looking Bill
