  1. Hasegawa makes the best 1/48 A-4 but they can be tough to find. Hobbyboss offers the most easily available A-4, which aren't too bad if you're not very particular about having the right details.
  2. Martin, I've just checked with the instructions and 8B is a part I'm not going to use. Let me know where to send it, please.
  3. Martin, which part of the engine housing are you missing? I'll be building my Lynx as a South African one using Scaleworx conversion for the Mk 300 so I might not need the part you're looking for.
  4. Looks great! I agree that this is a very good kit to build. Wish I had more of them.
  5. Thanks, Kampartiger! Pictures published in Koku-Fan April 1987 shows this aircraft flying without the antenna (part E20) so I went with that. Thanks for the kind words, everyone!
  6. This was my entry in last year's Specialist GB. It's the AFV Club 1/48 RF-5E Tigereye with Quickboost seat and WandD metal pitot. Cameras in the nose were scratch built along with some basic details in the cockpit. Decals are from decal-la and painted with Gunze Mr Color lacquers over a black surfacer base. Unfortunately I wasn't able to finish it in time for the GB deadline. Everything had gone well with the build until I brought it for a meet-up with some friends. I ended up sitting on the poor thing and damaged the rear fuselage. It almost went into the bin until I decided to repair and finish the project. Glad I did. aidy
  7. We're three days away from the end of the Malaysian primary school public exams, so I've been very busy with work. Hopefully I can continue with this build when it's over.
  8. A bit of progress over the past week. Not much as work gets in the way. I always cut the tailplane connection in half. This will allow me to attach them at the end so they won't interfere with masking the rear fuselage later. Just be sure to glue part H19 to part P7 before closing the fuselage. I've also cut off the tab marked in yellow as in previous builds I find that they interfere with the fit of part P7. The fuselage has been put together. I won't be able to spray anything until next weekend so I'll have to complete the rear fuselage before getting to work on the nose.
  9. I've made some progress yesterday. AFV Club tooled this kit with very tight tolerances, while it generally fits well, some of the inserts and panels need some adjustments and trimming to fit perfectly. The corner marked in yellow needs to be trimmed After which, the louvres will fit snugly I've also drilled out the inspection window and filled with some clear sprue. Needs a bit of fine tuning and polishing still. By the way, yes, I do make decals for other RMAF subjects. Used to be available from Hannants.
  10. Nice subject, Werner. Will be picking up pointers from your build. I plan to have another go at this sometime soon.
  11. These decals have markings for just about every F-5 that flew in the RMAF and yes, does cover the scheme of the aircraft you are building. Comparing with the RF-5E kit decals, AFV's artwork is quite accurate, just that the print quality is rather poor. My decals were printed by cartograf.
  12. Hi, Jabba. I made those decals, just haven't gotten round to selling them outside of Malaysia just yet.
