  1. Great work all around. I especially like the rivet job, it really adds to the finish.
  2. I wonder if these will Ex Israeli aircraft. And considering the US want's 37000 hrs per year there is seems to be enough work for pretty much every company already working in this space
  3. IIRC the US is looking for 40,000 hours of civilian fast air support in the next few years. Hence all these companies scrambling to pick up airframes. I read elsewhere Draken have bought another dozen or so TA-4's from Israel. I wonder who will be the first company to operate F-16A's in these sort of roles
  4. Very nice. As for the rivet detail, I like it and think it adds to the model .

    Thanks all. Just about done . Bombs are from a Hasegawa Weapons set. RBF's are from Eduard. I didn't bother correcting the positions of the inboard forward racks (to lazy ) Still they look good enough for me.

    when I saw "printed in Italy I assume that these were printed by Cartograph. But perhaps not. The rest of the decals look good but the pink/blue decals are unusable IMHO. Revells customer support has been good (for me) in the past. I'd be going for replacement
  9. Lovely work Jean. Like the weathering you've applied,
  10. 1/48 Kinetic Mirage IIIO

    Now that my 10 day sojourn to the motherland is over I've managed to get some shots of the Mirage on it's wheels The wheels are from Reskit . I'd never heard of them before but found the wheels on eBay. They are very nice and come with separate hubs. The kit wheels are significantly under size in diameter and width. The Reskit wheels match the sizes for the tyres I found online. However when I cut them of the casting blocks and dry fitted them to the kits they were contacting the scissor link on the main gear leg. Even sanding down the scissor link wouldn’t result a gap between the tyre and the link. Looking at the actual aircraft wheels in photos I noticed the brake assembly on the inner hubs sits proud of the tyre. Whereas I'd sanded this part off the resin wheels thinking it was part of the casting block. I punched some discs from plastic and glued this to the hubs which returned them to the approximate original size. Once the hub was put into the wheel assembly the wheels no longer contact the scissor link. The nosewheel in the kit is also much thinner than the resin part. Luckily the kit has 2 forks for the nosewheel, and the one marked as not used fits the resin wheel perfectly. l] Fitment of the gear doors is pretty straight forward. Just the racks and a few other details to go
  11. Nice work Roman.
