  1. Hi Mark...! 1) I've used a primer.. the Mr. Finishing Primer 1500 White Gunze. This is not the first time that I used it and I fell good with this product. I add Levelling Thinner Gunze at 80% so I can obtain an homogeneous surface... moreover this primer can be sanded with 1500/2000/3000 and 4000 grit papers to reach a very smooth finish. 2) The last pic is referred to the model still in construction (at that time I hadn't added the tailerons yet). Unfortunately that was the only moment where I could take a picture of the under surfaces... with canopies and VHF antenna on th
  2. Good night to all, I'm glad to present my last work, a T-38 A Talon from Wolpack. I've built the kit OOB except for some scratchbuilt addictions in the cockpit (i.e. the separation glass of the central frame) and in the wheels/airbrakes bay. I also added the positive rivets from Archer on the exhausts zone. Pilot's name decal on the rear canopy taken from the Fundekals sheet. Hope you'll enjoy... take care and stay safe in this difficult moments. Cheers frome Rome. Valerio. Talon END 3 by Valerio, su Flickr Talon END 4 by Valerio, su Flickr Talon
  3. The cockpit is based on the previous set for Hasegawa "adjusted" for Tamiya kit. It need a lot of work to fit inside the fuselage...
  4. Good evening to all! I'm glad to present my last work, the F-14 A Bu.No. 160390 that killed a Sukhoi-22 during the Gulf of Sidra incident of 1981. Tamiya kit with Aires cockpit (the best cockpit I've ever used as quality of details, the worst as difficulty to put it inside the fuselage) and exhausts, Brassin wheels, Kokopelli ladder, and Furball decals. Finished with Gunze and Alclad paints. Hope you enjoy.... cheers! Valerio from Rome, Italy. Tomcat END 10 by Valerio, su Flickr Tomcat END 1 by Valerio, su Flickr Tomcat
  5. Thank you Lolo! Hoping to not break the forum rules, this is the link to the complete WIP of my 326 - CLICK! You can find all of my works here! or on our FORUM (sorry but Modeling Time is in italian language). Hope you will enjoy!
  6. I didn't know that Red Roo makes aftermarket for the 326.... maybe OzMods? I purchased the wing flaps from OzMods... and the quality is very poor. For this reason I choosen to made it from scratch... MB.326-22 by Valerio, su Flickr Beautiful aircraft the SF-260... the Ferrari of General Aviation! Is this the Planet Model kit?
  7. Thank you so much for you kindly comments!! The jet pipe is an Evergreen Tube (item #230) that has 7,9 mm of diameter. Inside the pipe I added the four thermocouples (made with copper wire) and the exhaust trimmers (made with plasticard). Inside an half of fuselage I added two main ribs: the left serves to block the long jet pipe.

  8. Good night to all! I'm back with my last work, an Aermacchi MB-326 G from the old ESCI (now Italeri) kit in 1/48 scale. The only two aftermarkets that I used are the Neomega cockpit (very poor and inaccurate)... and the 300 litres fuel tanks from SkyModels.

  9. Thank you all for the appreciations! Sure! I can send you the cutting file. Send me a PM!
  10. Good morning to all! I'm glad to present my last work... a restoration of an old Hasegawa A-4 that I built ten years ago. I decided to put it back to workbench due to the "crack" of the fuselage: 21616109_10210113589216277_2086911637920727775_n by valerio, su Flickr While I was at it, I scratchbuilt a new UHF dorsal hump (the one in the Hasegawa kit is wrong in dimensions and shape) using the cutting plotter: A-4SU Restoration_11 by valerio, su Flickr A-4SU Restoration_10 by valerio, su Flickr There was other details to fi
  11. Quoting Toniosky, more or less 2 mm to high. Pay attention to the main landing gear, you also have to "trim" it to obtain the correct balance.
  12. Thank you again to all! Exactly! I modified the angle of front landing gear fork.... a recognised problem of the Eduard kit. Mirage III - 78 by valerio, su Flickr Mirage III - 96 by valerio, su Flickr Hi Habu! I'm not agree... looking at the pictures ot the Mirage 259, I never seen a dirt or weatherd aircraft. For example: Thanks to G.Antìc e G.Kuntz for the images. I chooed the Semi Gloss Mr.Paint... but looking at the pictures, I should have done it chrome!
  13. Thank you to all for your appreciations! it's always a pleasure taking so much compliments.

  14. Good night to all! here the last birth directly from my workbench... an israeli Mirage III CJ! Base kit is the Eduard, but I used the resin set for cockpit and wheel bays from SBM. Other details are from Eduard photoetched set, pitot from Master. For the natural metal finish I used the Aclad Lacquers and Mr.Paint semi gloss for the final coat. The decals are a mix from the kit and Isradecal set. Hope you'll enjoy. Cheers from Rome, Italy! Mirage_End 20 by valerio, su Flickr Mirage_End 18 by valerio, su Flickr Mirage_En d 1
