  1. Bf me109 fuselage center line

    It's something that a lot of modelers miss. I believe that you will find this center line is also present on the Me.110 and other Messerschmitt aircraft.
  2. You have really put in a lot of work on your P-38. I think you over did the pre-shading though. Next time you might want to try a different color, something a little more close to the final color, but still somewhat darker and perhaps a finer spray tip so that the lines are not so exaggerated (large, over sized width) in appearance.

    You've certainly made a silk purse out of a sow's ear Barry.
  4. Tamiya new release 109 picture leaked.....

    Hope we see this one in 1/72, in particular with the tall tail. At the very least, it would compliment the Fine Molds series of 109Gs.
  5. Airfix Me262 - a look in the box

    I am still wondering about those engines nacelles. That's a pretty big piece of detail that looks to be missing. For all the faults of the Hasegawa, Revell and Academy kits, they did not miss that.
  6. Dragon's 1/72 Pz IVD - has anyone seen the tracks?

    Part does a photoetch set for those, just be sure you get the set for the Revell kit and not the set for the Fujimi kit.
  7. Airfix Me262 - a look in the box

    Sorry, I Colin, I can't confirm that one, but I've been looking over pictures of the sprue shots and something had been nagging at me about this kit (as nice as it looks). Then it dawned on me, the lack of detail on the rear of the engine nacelles (all those little triangular looking vents). Is it my poor eyes, the inability of picking out this detail from the online pics or is this detail indeed not present?
  8. 1/18 Spitfire Mk. XIVe - Race #80

    What a mind blowing piece of work!
  9. Looks really nice. I am curious, did you clear coat the clear parts? They look "foggy".
  10. Dragon's 1/72 Pz IVD - has anyone seen the tracks?

    What's wrong with their Ausf.H kit?
  11. JV44 stripe size?

    As another option, if someone has the Eagle Cals decal sheet, the OP could ask them to scan it and the all the OP would have to do is scale up the image to 1/48 or, of course, just buy the 1/48 sheet
  12. JV44 stripe size?

    Eduard does this kit in 1/48 scale. Why don't you go over to their website and check out the kit and instructions. Should give you plenty to work with.

    Thanks Barry. Rob Taurus does a fantastic Bf.109B canopy. It is for the Heller kit, but then again, so are the Falcon ones. I just think that the Rob Taurus canopies are nicer. I always go to Owl for these. I am aware that you have worked with Roy Sutherland in the past on some of his Cooper Details sets, as the AMG kit is somewhat of a let down, have you given any thought to collaborating with Roy and doing a conversion set? Perhaps basing it on the Tamiya kit (which would also work with the ICM kit), it would probably be far less work than what it would take to build this kit and end up being far better.
  14. AMG 1/72 Messerschmitt Bf 109 A

    Thanks Barry. I noticed that Gunze has a Clear Silver color, GX-110. Have you experimented at all with that one? Quite honestly, I do not know what they mean by Clear Silver, but if the Gloss Clear makes for a better mixture, in this instance, would the Clear Silver of the same brand and line not work even more in your favor?
  15. Italian fighter cockpit colour?

    Thank you!
