  1. F-86F-40 type of nose wheel spokes in 1/48 scale?

    yup. other than fashion your own solid wheel, I have no idea where to get one. Good Luck. Tony
  2. F-86F-40 type of nose wheel spokes in 1/48 scale?

    Just get a True Details ‘late ‘wheel set, the nose wheel is way better than the kit wheel. Heck, if you are really concerned with accuracy, then replace the god awful nose leg while you’re at it. Both Has and Academy think there is a sharp angle to the nose fork. cheers, Tony
  3. 1/72 Brengun North American A-36A

    Yes, on with the accolades for Patrick's A-36; Again, well done and apologies for the thread drift, my fault. I like your 'faded panel' effect, i'm a firm believer in getting away from the mono-chromatic look of a single colour scheme. Cheers, and 'Model On !!' Tony
  4. 1/72 Brengun North American A-36A

    Do you have a reference for that; I have nothing at all in my books that agrees with your position, this is from North American; show us something, Cheers, Tony

    Real nice work Patrick, lovely clean build; now, Corsair, I think the word you were looking for was 'Mustang'
  6. 1/72 Airfix Sabre Mk2 441 Sqn

    Some of the marking were ALPS printed, so they wore naturally as I manhandled the kit, others, I used some steel wool, scraped with an Exacto and oversprayed with a light coat of Al. All trial and error as most of my builds turn out to be. Cheers, Tony
  7. 1/48 CAC-27 Avon Sabre

    I've never seen a CAC Sabre with bombs, and definitely not on the inboard Sidewinder pylons. Tony
  8. 1/72 Airfix Sabre Mk2 441 Sqn

    Yep, the Scobie wing was for the Fujimi/HobbyCraft series. The KiwiResin will only fit the new Airfix Sabre due to the way Airfix made their wing fit up. Kiwi did not correct the ‘bloated belly’ of the Airfix kit though(and therefore, neither did I). The Pavla canopy is made for the Airfix kit but needs a bunch of filler at the front area. Cheers, Tony
  9. 1/72 Airfix Sabre Mk2 441 Sqn

    Tamiya AS-12 decanted for the airbrush. I Tinted the AS12 with Gunze white and black and sprayed a few masked panels. Gunze smoke applied and lots of 3M post-it notes used as temporary masks. Spencer Pollard’s YouTube tutorial on NMF finishes is a good place to start. cheers, Tony
  10. 1/72 Airfix Sabre Mk2 441 Sqn

    Yes, I believe that’s what I did.
  11. 1/72 Airfix Sabre Mk2 441 Sqn

    441 Sqn flew out of North Luffenham actually.
  12. Used a KiwiResin wing, Pavla wheels and canopy, RedRoo tanks, DEKLS for the markings along with some Arrow Graphics and Leading Edge decals. The wing is practically a drop in fit, but I was not impressed with the slat mounting and it gave me no end of trouble. Airfix landing gear and speedbrakes are woefullly inadequate but i elected not to improve those areas. A little work was done to the area behind the seat under the canopy. Wingtip nav lights are clear sprue bits filed and sanded to conform. Fuselage vents had to be added to make it a proper Canadair Mk2.
  13. NA-73 X

    Well done Antun, I love the realization of your Aluminum finish.
  14. NA-73 X

    The aircraft at Oshkosh is a NA-73; no X. It was pulled from the RAF Mustang Mk1 production line. Back to the OP post, what kit/scale did you start with ?? Wonderful work, would like to know more about it. Cheers, Tony

    the pics are down while Fred fixes his speedbrakes, I suspect
