  1. Does it fool the eye? It sure does. But in reality I think it should be exactly opposite or reverse and that's harder to achieve. I just recently happened to stand over a P-47 wing and ammunition cover panel had exactly the same stressed skin, but with internal framing sticking slightly out.
  2. From here it looks like a potential masterpiece to me.
  3. It was better that I bought Betty instead of this one when I had tho choose between them, after all. Thank you.
  4. How did the canopy fit to the fuselage? I have read somewhere that it is too wide or something similar.
  5. Oh, if there's nothing on the aftermarket to replace them with, or if you dislike my suggestion, then nevermind.
  6. As I was born in the former Yugoslavia I know something about F-84. In fact I just saw two of our former G models two weeks ago. The framing was fitted to the outside of the canopy. Do yourself a favour and fill those pin holes on the canopy with Vallejo putty and paint them over. I have seen this kit built up and it really spoils it a bit. The tyres however Will need to be replaced.
  7. Keep in mind that canopy on real aircraft had strips taped on for reinforcement and since this was a tape, there were no rivets. The canopy in this kit is full of rivets. Also the tires look weird. Josip
  8. Now that is finally a step in to right direction. Theis kit needs replacement guns as the desert cries for water. Also the rivets are another must have. As for Eduard PE, I think that its as good as invisible. Try painting various panels in different shade of metal.
  9. Despite some flaws its a big and impressive model. I'm getting mine on monday.
  10. The kit of my youth. I had built 2 of them. One visible flaw with this kit is the angle of the wings. Instead of being straight and slightly upwards the outer wings point a bit down and the wings have a slight gull like appearance.
  11. Please check my model. I think that with that surface the best solution is to paint the markings.
  12. Many modelers here can do the airplane, but not many can paint life to those figures.
  13. See and try if you can change the angle of the undercarriage.
  14. And now sir, you can retire. I dare to say that the original wasn't as neat as this model.
  15. By all means. Go. There's an impresive museum in Pivka chock full of hardvare.
  16. After having bought the kit and having examined the instructions and the plastic I must revoke my statement about Hasegawa kit being far superior.
  17. Vallejo olive drab is distinctly brown on its own. Use it as a base colour but add a bit of interior green or dark green to it and you'll see the difference. Don't coat the entire model in the same hue. Make a patchwork of different shades.
  18. The kit is a modified B-17G. All is pretty much the same. Machine gun barrels are noticeable thick for1:72. Hasegawa 0.50 Brownings are the best ones and Airfix has the worst ones-they look like 20mm cannons. I've replaced the ones in Revell kit with QB resin.
  19. Thank you. Maybe Revell will reissue it. They're awfully scarce these days.
  20. Yes. Tanks were from T-33. Also there is one much closer to you in Pivka, Slovenia and in Kbely, Prague that was brought from Maribor. All ex JRV planes
  21. I still have that tank model. A surprisingly sound kit from the past. I believe it is in 1:76.
  22. The kit is a mixed blessing. Pavla makes the vacuformed nose and clear parts, but its up to modeller to rectify uniformly thick wings, weird looking engines, thick MG barrels and unnecessary deep panel lines. It can be done, but it requires a lot of work. I did it once and won't do it again. Josip
