raschi replied to raschi's topic in Ready for Inspection - AircraftThanks to all I do not recall any build problems with Academy kit, only big shortcoming were completely empty engine intakes and exhausts. The Extratech PE set included besides other bits compressor faces and mesh protectors to intakes, for exhausts I made FODs (the same problem was also on old Hasegawa kit, but thanks to dark coloring of Dominican bug it played little role). Decals contained with Academy kit were for US and South Korea, both in SEA camo, I did not use them but they were obviously typical Academy "planks", glossy and thick.
raschi posted a topic in Ready for Inspection - AircraftHello all, here is pair of Dragonflies that I built several years ago. Thai one is Academy (+Extratech etch) and Dominican one is old Hasegawa (with positive panel lines). Both completed with Agama alcohol based colors and Albatros Modelworks decals. They still missing whip anthenas, I have to force myself to add them some day Link to hi-res photos here
