  1. LEM 1/32 SU-17/22M4

    Hello Dave, I started building this kit and I can say it's one of the top-quality resin kits that is around : complete, well detailed, very well moulded (no pinholes). But it's an engineer's model : fantastically designed, but asking for a lot of thought before comitting glue to resin. For instance the forward fuselage is a one-piece casting ! No warping, top quality...but like the famous "ship in a bottle", everything (intake, nose wheel well, cockpit) will have to be inserted from the back of the part ! The cockpit could have been a little more detailed, as the exhaust. Several parts (u/c legs, pitot tubes) are reinforced with metal rod. At first you'd think the model surface is bare, but put on a light coat of primer and very nice, petite, engraved lines appears. No instructions, no decals (but decals exists) HTH Marc
  2. Hello, I like this one too... Marc
  3. Thanks all for all the kind words. @ Orangesherbert : yes I used some wash from MIG @ Busby061 : it would have been tedious to cut all these small squares, so I got some help from my Silhouette Portrait cutter https://www.silhouetteamerica.com/shop/machines/portrait Cheers MarcB
  4. Hello everybody, My name is Marc, and I've been a long time lurker on this forum. I make sure to visit at least once a day, there are always nice models and lots of interesting info to be found. And as I finally completed a model (wow !!) I'd like to show some pictures of it. It's a conversion of a 1/48 Hasegawa P-47D into a P-47N, using an old (but still very nice) Medallion Models conversion set, all combined with an Aires cockpit, the engine and drop tanks from the Revellogram P-47N and Master gun barrels. Paints are Alclad and various acrylic stuff. Decals come from an Aeromaster sheet, the Revellogram decal sheet and home-made decals. Checkers on the tail and nose were airbrushed on, using self-made vinyl masks. Thanks for looking (and sorry for my approximative English.. ) MarcB
