  1. Hello Dears, I started this one in the '90 and today, I've been sparked to pick it up and work on this car. As a mechanic, seeing cars 8hrs a day at work is enough for me, but.. I like US oldies so... Sometimes, I let my aircrafts aside. I found some pics on the web, as I've worked on these, improving the engine will be easy. I will get rid from the chrome on the suspension, I will not my Chevy to be pimped If someone had an idea to erase the chrome, let me know please. Have a very nice day. Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  2. Hello Dears, I know I have a lot of WiP, some of it are stalling for months if not years, but sometimes I will improve my skills Or I need more documentations OR I'm bored and jump to another kit What is a luck for SWMBO is that I do it only with kits, is there an modelling equivalence to womanizer ?? Kitizer ? Modelizer ? So in my Chuck Yeager serie, I want to do the NF-104 in which he has beaten an altitude record, not registered Aaaaand crashed ! Here's the basis, Oh did I mention that this thread will be a double kit issue ?? Why cutting in a not too bad but expensive Hasegawa kit when you have one or two Monogram at hand ?? Dave Claus from cutting Edge say, if you want to adapt it in a Monogram kit, you are on your own ! Caramba, Too tempting for me... I must try !! No longer have the Monogram box sorry but it was the German G with a (too) colorfull yellow marking ! Aaaand that one too Still I have some resin parts for these birds ! As it is said that the G version is the best choice, I started some "chainsaw massacre" Yellow plastic... loads of sanding ahead ! The Hasegawa one will depict the box art for my Cold war serie ! Ok Dears, I don't know when this one will be called finished But be reassured, I've tons of other projects that are not WiPed I know, I'm mad But hey ! I finish some models too !! Sincerely. CC
  3. Hello Dears, Before anything said, I wish you and your family a happy and wealthy new year , may 2017 bring you the actual realisation of your Dreams I must confess that I'm a serial starter, I can stay month and even years in some case without finishing a model, and then in a given time, I will have 3, 4 or 5 kits out in a few weeks. Sometimes I speak with a friend about an Aircraft, or see her on the web, and I go to my attic (my own private shop) pick up a box or two and have a go. I've started the Airfix PR XIX weeks ago, trying to duplicate the cameras, As I bought the ICM Spitfire HF VII in a bashed box containing the HF VII, a XVI and parts from a IX, I also casually start the Mk XVI. The HF VII is finished, opening the way for the XVI, See, The Eduard Mk IX will be finished in a few weeks, tool late for a WIP on the right, the wings of the Mk XVI and her interior. On the left lie the PR XIX, I use the Airfix parts to make parts for my PR XI and PR I conversions. Still the rocker cover are a little bit undersized, but the exhaust rack seem to be at the right place. Here's a comparison between the Spinners from Quickboost, Airfix and Barracudacast The Quickboost one is made to compensate the too large spinner plate from the Academy XIV, I will check it and cross check with the Seafire .17 Another side and long term project, turning a Monogram A-1H into a AD-4NA from korean war. That mean erasing all the armour plates and engrave it according to the plans and photos, there is a Tamiya A-1H started aside but not many modifications Almost from the box No, never believe me when I tell such a thing The Meteor transkit is made for the Tamiya, and did'nt correspond to the Monogram, so I did it old school modelling, after all, I'm not a rabbit of the year Ok, more in the future... There still is the Mk IX, the Eduard Mk VIII, an Hasegawa Typhoon and a F-94C that are at the painting room... Have a nice evening, quiet after yesterday excesses.... Sincerely. Corsaircorp
  4. Hello Dears, However, I cannot start a WiP for any of my running projects. I always have "side projects", kind of kits that are processing at the pace of "an asthmatic snail with a bad limb" thank to the martian for the sentence !! I participate to the researches about 2 Lancasters wrecks in my vicinity, after the second excavation, I decided to start mine as a Ton up Lanc. Here's the well known kit As a tail sitter, she do not need ballast but for the sake of the Lancaster spirit, I will include a bit from ED800 and PD306 in this kit. I will depict "Phantom of the Ruhr" I also really like the F-4 so it is a double shot here ! Knowing that the engine nacelles are flawed, I bought some aftermarket parts, like these I make a big mistake since I wanted to engrave the kit, I should have this done on the wing only Since on the fuselage, the riveting stand proud , too late once it is open one just have to carryin' on !! The flaps are cut because I will drop it a bit, Eduard interior parts are great, even if it will not be really visible once the fuselage is closed. Now, Dears, I have a question, Belcher bits give us differents air intakes for the engine nacelles But when I look surviving Lanc, I did'nt see differences in between inboard and outboard air intakes ??? Should I rectify this ?? And which one is the good one ?? Large or small ?? I will post sometime on this thread, but it will not go faster, For now, I'm preparing 2 RFI's Thanks for watching, Ok Spad, here's my Lancaster, will not be as good as your Bloody Parylyzer !! Sincerely. Corsaircorp

Hats up to Mrs Martian, You're a Lucky man with a perfect lady Oh great galactic fleet admiral Very good choice indeed, it's a very nice Aircraft but is there any Target tug version of this one ?? Could be interesting, just a joke ! I 100% agree on civilian version ! So may I have a seat and sip my BB in a the usual nasty corner ?? Great choice and super good start ! Have fun my friend ! That's the way ! Sincerely. CC

    Hello David, I'll tag along if you don't mind since I have one or two versions of this kit ! Détails are looking good, Adjustment have improved but .... Where would be the pleasure ?? Have a good modelling time ! Sincerely. CC
  8. 1:72 Matchbox A-10A - NOT straight from the box!

    Wow ! It's a piece of Madness bravery ! Good job anyway, please mind a room for a nose ballast because all the A-10 kits are prone to tail sitting ! Keep carry on Dear ! Sincerely ! Corsaircorp

  13. CF-104D Starfighter 1/48 Hasegawa

    Very great job Captain Martian ! Must find a NATO private drawing that represent Nato pilots who are playing darts withs F-104 .... Don't remember where it is... Surely a safe place.... Let us know poor earthling about the grade of the Martian galactic Navy, is Captain relevant ?? Given the name Blurgelcruncheon, I fear the worst, may be Captain is a good option at all. So you miss the job of referee in our Duel at dawn in the misty fields with Armstrong Withwort Canonette Mk I ??? Very good job on your dart Hoops F-104 Sincerely. Bungee bedroom ??? interesting ! CC
  14. Hello spad, Thank for pointing the camera window, I presume that each and every Lanc got that one... I have my hands full with my 3 RFI's but today, I've a Lanc idea ! You are doing a pristine bomber, Is it her who has forgot a bomb in Berlin today ?? Hope that chaps will get it out whitout any damages.... This is a fear for us when we make researches on a bomber.... Was it empty ?? Because even a 70 years old bombs is still lacking any sens of humor !! Great job my friend and always a pleasure to catch up with your thread !! Keep up that fine job ! Sincerely. CC

    Hello Noel, Sadly, it's usual here in this part of Belgium where I used to work. Wen you blast the Horn, the moron will pull on the brake and ask you if you're a policeman. Scream at that you must mind your business, you're lucky if he did'nt smash on you or on your car. Don't even mind about the police, you've no proof, it is your parole against his parole.... I'm glad that I live now in a remote tiny village and got out of this madness ! Sincerely. CC

    The same here in Belgium ! I should have my new service car since mid september.... Even a big society like the one I'm working for get marred with such administrative stupidity... 2 month wasted because the guy who deliver the document was ill.... That's a luck he did'nt passed away... That man must be considered as a national treasure since he is the only one able to offer a green light for special vehicles.... Mention !! We did'nt have that certificate yet because the VRS system fitted on the vehicle come from UK. I suppose that the withwort measures are incompatible with its meter, and the pounds are not kilos... How difficult it is to verify, moreover, we have that stupid war in between the french and flemish speaking peoples..... The country must try to fare whitout any government, it will not get worst anyway and it will be cheaper.... Sincerely. CC

    First, because it's not mine.... Second, Our leader and administrations are more and more frustrating ! They asked the owner of the Lotus for a certificate of polluting fumes from Lotus Is that car an Euro 4 ? or Euro 5 ? That damned "Ecologist" are barring us from any pleasure ! Sincerely. CC

    I agree a 100% I was in the ring of kerry with a load of friends and I sat on such a chair with the whole bunch of goblins... mine and the ones of my friends Since the day before was very hard, I mean pub and paddy and black bush, I did'nt look very smart... 2 old ladies gave 5 bucks "For the kids" .... My friends burst in laugh when they saw this, and it was the subject of the banter at the pub... Once again... Sincerely. CC

    Hey dears, Look what I have fixed today at the job !! That was mechanics !! 1500cc Ford pinto engine, but she's not considered as a vintage car since it was ftrom 1973 but the date considered is the date of entry in belgium !! They more and more stupid here. So, here's a Lotus seven from 1993 ??? Plus 20 years in U.K that did'nt count for a Lady, loosing 20 years in a blow can be considered as an improvement... Have a good modelling time ! Sincerely. CC

    And they are asking the news about the kids, the nephews and even the dogs, then time to argue about taxes, increase of prices... And then complaining about health issues of the neighbourhood... Then asking the price in "Ancien francs".... I had a french friend that was always calculating the prices in Ancien franc and millions of centimes... He was born 8 years after the money changing... Incredible... Once in a tiny supermarket of a tiny village, I waited in the queue, grew bored, get back in the shelves, put all the stuff back at its place and when I get out empty handed , still they were arguing about Sarkozy...

  25. Hello Dears, Since my Seafire FR.47 in now in such a state... Time to think about givin'her a deck mate... HMS Triumph on the first British action in the Korean war has Some Seafire FR.47 and Fairey Firefly Mk I, Sooo My Korean serie is on the go with another british entry, I would have a WWII paint scheme with the Korean stripes But... Will not have the 2 with almost the same painting... And I hesitate between Evely Tentions or Lucy quipment for my BPF serie. So I will make this one I will just check if she lasted long enough to carry the stripes too... The offer is good, look But I will add this, and this same resin parts in the Grand Phoenix one ! Let's start !! The instructions gave some Beige radio and radar boxes... I doubt about that color, may be @tonyot can help about the fact ! However, I'll warmly thank Tony, his articles are really helpfull, However, I miss the one about the Fireflies... Have a good modelling time CC, the serial WiP'er....
