  1. Thanks for that, I might just try and do an F-4J that's was leased via the US Navy.....it might just be a lot easier as there wouldnt be any major difference in the airframe
  2. Honestly, I don't know why Tamiya avoided doing an FG 1 or and FRG 2, it would have sold like hot cakes I reckon. I wonder if there is a conversion kit out there somewhere for it, if anyone knows of it, could they link it please
  3. I'm not sure about that as there are many, many talented modellers, but thank you for your comment.
  4. Thanks Tom, I have seen many of your works at medway model club so I take your praise with high order. Yes indeed it was, if you want more details on it please PM me. Many thanks to everyone's kind comments, I'm very humbled to think that the many great modellers on this site are liking my work. Thanks again to everyone
  5. Could someone post a link to said alterations to the kit as I cant find it
  6. Thank you for your kind comments. I tend to work on commercial aircraft rather than military (sadly), but yes I believe it has given me more in sight and an 'eye' for the weathering effects. One big thing it has done in my experience is it makes you aware of the type on environmental conditions parts of the aircraft get abused by and then i can adapt the weathering to suit.
  7. Hello all, I have been rather busy working of late but I have found time between working with real aircraft to finish my F-4D. Im sure many are aware that the Tamiya kit is a dream to build and goes together very well, I used Mr Colour paint which I believe are the best on the market at the moment, the colours I used were 303 (FS34102), 310 ((FS 30219) and 320 (Dark Green)……….and black for the bottom Sadly the decals were in a poor state and fragmented as soon as they hit the water, so I purchased the Warbirds Decals set (32009) which were superb and set well on the aircraft and into any details very well and recommended. I didn't like the fit of the intakes to the ducting, so I thought it a far better idea to use the Quickboost (QB 32089) set of intake covers. The seats are aftermarket, but I cant tell you who made them as they came free with the kit (from a certain auction site) All the weapon pylons are removable, this is done using small earth magnets in the wings and pylon locations. I hope you like it, it is certainly my best build so far. All comments are welcome, thanks for looking
  8. The best thing about Mr colour paints is that you always seem to get the same finish every time, so if you're like me and forget a bit...you get the same colour every time. They have been a real game changer for me.
  9. Second one completed of 2019 is the Focke-Wulf Fw190 A5 from Hasegawa, this again (same as the Bf-109 G10) is a great kit, with no issues at all. Painted with Mr Colour paints and thinners (amazing products in my opinion). My choice of aircraft was quite easy as the Stab/Jagd-Erganzungsgruppe aircraft of Ost, Maj Herman Graf was so colourful and different, this was based in France 1943. If anyone can enlighten me on the markings, id be very grateful of the knowledge.
  10. This is a Hasegawa 1/32 Bf-109 G-10 and it proved a very easy build, no major fit issues at all (a nice change). I have painted it using MrColour paints to represent an aircraft from 2./JG300 Feldwebel Ederhard Gzik based in Germany, October 1944. I added some photo etch seat belt from Eduard to set the cockpit off, I hope you like 'Rita', I am quite happy with the results.
  11. Sorry for the late reply first of all. The Jug with the duck on is indeed straight out of the trumpeter box and settled perfectly, 'Tipsy' decals came for kits-world war bird series and settled down well too. Both decals needed a couple of rivet holes needled and another coat of micro-sol applied to get them completely settled, but no real drama.
  12. It must be jugs season lol! I just completed two of the trumpeter 1/32 kits: Jugs rule!!! Well done on yours, I love the realistic faded paint work 10/10
  13. Yayyy! Some one had too, well done for being 'the brave one' hahaha! Thank you for your kind comments
