    The exhaust tubes go inside the cowling, not outside. To correct it you should cut the entire front cowling, , remove a "lip" that the kit has between it and the exhaust concavities and put the tubes inside. I planned this as a quick build so... The canopy is too thick, altought it is not an inaccuracy, wheel wells too flat, very bad engine, and other details. However it was a good testbed for weathering. I´m glad you like it. Best regards.

    The F4U-7 comes with parts and decals to make an AU-1. Thanks for your comments! Best regards. Ignacio

    Thanks very much! I´m glad you like it!
  6. Hello fellow modellers! I would like to show you my most recent finish. It´s the Italeri Vought AU-1 Corsair in 1/72. It´s a simple and well known kit. It has some inaccuracies, but I tried to improve it a little. I added some Eduard PE, vacuformed the sliding canopy, and some antennas. I used Print Scale decals for this aircraft. This brand has a lot of schemes for many different models, but there are always several errors. For example, the serial number for this plane says F4U-4, instead of AU-1. Some numerals are missing and the code letters are wrong size. However it ends different than the classic kit OOB. I tried to replicate some heavy weathering like seen on some photos. This time I didn´t use pastels, but airbrush and oil paints. The upper part of the flying surfaces was faded by elements and I wanted to show that effect. I hope you like it. Every critics and comments are welcomed. Best regards from Uruguay. Ignacio

    Very nice! I really liked the weathering job. I would like to point out that the wheel doors are interchanged. I´m sure it´s an easy fix if you want to do it. Please don´t take the wrong way my observation, your model looks awesome to me! best regards. Ignacio

    Very nice and realistic! best regards Ignacio
  9. Thanks for your kind words guys!!! I´m glad you like it!
  10. I don´t know how I achieved that, but if you like it that´s enough for me! I painted it with acrylics, a Chilean brand called K4. Some future for the decals (I found that it goes very well over these paints) and after that testors acrylic matt varnish very diluted with alcohol. Using acrylics always seems to give better results for me, I´m not always pleased when I use enamels. Thanks for all comments guys, very appreciated!!! Ignacio
  11. Yes I know...my fault! I delayed that step until I completely forgot it! Best regards and thanks for all the comments! Ignacio
  12. Thanks! No I didn´t.... Why that question?
  13. Thanks Martin!!! An honor for me! Cheers! Ignacio
  14. Hi fellow modellers, this time I present you this kit I finished some days ago. It´s the well known Airfx Typhoon IB in 1/72nd. A good kit very straightforward to build. The only thing I have to complain about airfix is that some small parts are too thick, and decals are hard and thick too. I painted the invasion stripes for this reason. I hope you like it and every critics and comments are welcomed! best regards. Ignacio from Uruguay.
