  1. Mk-24 and LUU-2/B seem to be quite similar one each other!
  2. Final Aircraft Grey Testors FS36473 in progress... Next stop will be Insigna White Testors FS37875 on top of the wing
  3. (Heavy) pre-shading in progress! It worked
  4. Thanks all!
  5. Hi there, thank you for your support! I've found some interesting infos on line but this is the best.... I used two rods of 2,6mm diameter according 1/48 scale with two small strips of styrene each of them. Painted by Testors 1711E FS34087 with preshading. This is an interesting link about... Alex
  6. Finally masking & painting! I got Aircraft Grey Testors FS 36473 itself as primer with a lovely result... All areas clean and details well visible! Alex
  7. E' magnifico! Saluti da.... Roma Ale
  8. Next stop were the other clear parts. They were not so bad as the windshield but they needed to be smooth by 1000 wet&dry sandpaper then Tremillimetri polish as well. After that, I glued each of them to toothpick by a little quantity of PVA glue. When dry, I immersed themselves into acrylic gloss varnish of Humbrol. I took the occasion to get Tamiya tape strips in their each size in advance, following the instruction sheet numbers. Clear parts of the rooftop were too small, I replaced them by Evergreen clear sheet at the right size
  9. Thanks Mick, these pictures are dated early February, I'm getting primer today
  10. More details here... Windshield is the worst part of the kit. Vacuum tecnique should be the right thing to do. Instead, I got easily a smoothing by '1000' wet&dry sandpaper, then Tremillimetri Italian polish and acrylic clear varnish by Humbrol, that were working great.... Landing gear strut is coming from the kit, the other one from spare parts. Inside of them I inserted a metal rod to give more strenght... It's time to get the couple of cowlings on the front engine exhausts as shown... See direction to the right of the gear given by pedals inside the cockpit....
  11. Hi all, latest pictures of WiP.... Tail with rivets & plates Rudders
  12. Jari, thanks for sharing these two nice pics, I'm getting s/n 67-21331, almost in the same setting of diorama! Well done! Alex
  13. Antoine, I've collected a lot of pictures before starting so that I've noticed this problem! Starting point was a couple of Lycoming engines taken from two Esci Cessna C172 kit as shown at the end of page 1.
