  1. I haven't heard of that technique......could you fill me in please? () no, seriously, what is it and how do you do it? Cheers.
  2. That is a beautiful build....well done! There are quite a few Eduard PE sets available for this model, could you tell me which one(s) you used please? Thanks.
  3. Brilliant work...I love it. I've got this kit in the stash, also with the same Eduard bits as yours. I've also invested in a RAM panel mask set by Dmodels in the hope of making the painting a little easier....time will tell!
  4. Thanks both. I think that taking / posting the photos and then viewing them on line might have subtly changed the shades of the colours. As I sit here now looking at the decals the letters do look more sky than appears on the photo above.....and the red is definitely still brown to me . Especially the tail flashes and separate roundel centres...here's a couple more photos. However, I do think the camera is changing the shade slightly. As a comparison I've just grabbed some decals to compare - in this case they are from the 1/48 Lancaster...see photo below
  5. Hi all, hope we are all well. I recently purchased the new Revell 1/32 Hawker Tempest mark V. I say "new" but I believe it's actually a rebox of the Special Hobby kit. On opening the box everything looked pretty impressive with lots of detailed parts and very nice surface detail........and then I got to the decals. Here's a picture of the ones that came with my kit: Now I will admit that I am slightly colour blind, but the red colours on this decal sheet definitely look brown to me. So I checked with the rest of the family to be safe and they concur....the reds
  6. Beautiful, beautiful model! I'm about to embark on Tamiya's 1/32. I can only hope mine turns out half as good as yours! Well done.
  7. That is a phenomenal build. I love the attention to detail throughout the build and the subtle weathering...especially from the exhaust. Congratulations!
  8. Thanks, all, for your very kind comments. Looking back on the photos I posted yesterday, I've noticed that I didn't really upload any that I took of the starboard side of the aircraft, which is arguably more interesting with the refuelling probe, so here's a few more, taken from that side. As always, thanks for looking!
  9. Thanks Darren....the Corsair is one of my favorites too.....and to me it certainly doesn't deserve it's "SLUFF" nickname! Regarding the canopy frame, if you look towards the end of my WIP for this kit (see the link embedded above) you'll see that it isn't too hard to do....I just used some 0.7mm masking tape, which goes round bends nicely because it's so thin, and trimmed it with a very sharp blade.
  10. Oh John, please don't throw it away! That is a fantastic kit....a true work of art! You can buy some replacement metal landing gear....or convert it into an on-water diorama or something.....or send it to me and I'll do it!
  11. Hi folks, hope we are all well. Here is the latest addition to my collection, Trumpeter's 1/32 A-7E Corsair II. It's built OOB with a couple of exceptions: 1. I added the Zactomodels resin intake in order to improve the profile of the front end of the Corsair. Trumpeter's kit parts give the intake a flattened, oval shape whereas in real life it is more rounded. The Zactomodel's resin intake attempts to correct this and does a good job in my opinion. 2. I used the Eduard detail set for the Escapac IG-2 ejector seat. The kit instructions would have you use the parts included
  12. Hello all, hope everyone is OK. My rendition of Trumpeter's 1/32 A-7E is finished at last....I am not the world's quickest builder! There is a link below to it in the RFI section when I've had time to post the photos, but I thought I'd just share a bit more about the WIP. The first concerns the front undercarriage. The kit provides both plastic and metal parts for the undercarriage legs and I used the metal parts since this is quite a large and "chunky" kit when built. Unfortunately only the main leg is provided in metal for the front undercarriage, which has to be
  13. I like it a lot...whatever anyone else says! Great job, Speedy !! Can I ask a question please...do the wings / fins and elevators have raised panel lines too?
  14. I don't know how you've done it, but the outdoor shots are indistinguishable from a real aircraft. Superb work.....well done!
  15. Aha....sorry about that! Some kind member did post some pictures of the avionix bay on an A-7E being open WITH weapons on board.....so that definitively answers the question....yes it is possible! Going back to my model, it's almost finished so I'll be posting in the RFI very soon. Cheers!
