  1. Terrific overall job...how did you do the scuffing on the inboard sections of the wings? Cheers Collin
  2. Superb NMF work on this Mirage. What did you use? Cheers Collin
  3. VS-21 1995-1998, VX-1 1999-2001. Flew from both CV-62 and CV-63. Cheers Collin
  4. Nice looking bird, excellent choice on the Squadron. Yes, our aircraft did get this dirty, more from grubby hands and boots, leaky fluid and such. The more spotty and patchy the TPS finish, the more you knew your corrosion control folks were doing their job. Cheers Collin
  5. Beautiful build. Weathering very pleasing. Why OH Why (or when) hasn’t Tamiya done of P-38J/L!!!! Why Why Why Cheers Collin
  6. You are going to enjoy this build. It’s a good kit. There are a few areas that will need some clean up but they are easy. I built one and made mention of the tweaks a month or so ago and posted it here on BM. Cheers Collin
  7. Now I can see them. Weird great looking build. I have one in the stash myself. Cheers Collin
  8. Thinking of a gear up/in-flight Skyraider. Don’t know if anyone out there has tried before. Cheers Collin
  9. Either can I. Interesting.
  10. Airfix 1/48 Seafire 47 OOB, original 1996. For a kit this old....it builds very very nicely. This for sure is a 3 footer. Painted the stripes. Kit moved along pretty well until I got to the decals. Had a set of the aftermarket PMA (PMAD017) and they were complete garbage. Every decal shattered hitting the water. So out came the 26 year old decals and man that was a tough road. Each and every decal needed ~10 minutes to just come off the paper, and any modern day decal setting solution had zero affect on them. Some silvered, some just simply wouldn't stick. Toward the end I just wanted to finish, which caused me to paint the nav lights backwards. Another COVID build for the work display. Cheers Collin
  11. I’m in the painting stages of the same kit original boxing OOB. It’s been very pleasing build similar to yours. Can’t wait to see your finished product!! See you on the flight line. Cheers Collin
  12. 800 Sqd. All black cockpit or top half black/lower half Interior green? Thanks and Cheers Collin
  13. The aft section of both engine nacelles need some TLC. Luckily there are no seam lines back there so you can pull out your CA and sand that area smooth. The leading edge of the wings where they meet the engine nacelle have a little step that needs to be sanded smooth as well (hard to explain, you will notice it when you build it). Other than that...it's a great kit!! Enjoy it. Cheers Collin
  14. Almost grabbed this kit off the shelf yesterday, itching to build it (grabbed the PR XIX instead). Love the scheme. Cheers Collin
