  1. This is my rendition of Anigrand's 1/72 the Douglas F5D-1 Skylancer. The Skylancer was an improved F4D Skyray, similar to the F-106 being an improved F-102, but unlike the F-102 the F5D's came out while the F8U and F-4 where already under development so its timing was bad and it never went into production. This is typical to my experience with Anigrand kits; nice casting with a few pin holes, slightly undersized and slightly warped fuselage halves. It came with a nice looking ejection seat, but I used the CMK F4D interior. The decals were a mix of the kit ones for the aircraft specific markings, with national and Navy markings from other sheet. On the whole it was a pleasant build that took a total of 15 days. Here it is with an F4d-1 for comparison Next up is the Hasegawa SP-5B Marlin Enjoy
  2. This link just opens up https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?sp, which, I don't think, is what you meant.
  3. I look forward to seeing yours. It should be great. Thanks
  4. Fore warned is fore armed. Now you know what the issues are, you should go for it.
  5. Mine will be the Special Hobby version
  6. I should get the D-558-2 and X-1 done later this year Thanks
  7. Someone spent a long time polishing them to a high shine. See the 5th picture from the top here http://rocketumbl.tumblr.com/post/129160664370/amp Thanks
  8. Finished!! You can see more pictures at It was a lot of work, but well worth it, and it was a relatively quick build. Thanks all those who have watched, commented and helps with suggestions
  9. This is my 1/72 AZ Model's Douglas X-3 Stiletto. This is another kit that is not for the faint of heart or the easily discouraged and for more details on my trials and tribulations you can see my WIP entry at To summarize nothing that is supposed to go into the fuselage interior will fit and nothing on the right side of the fuselage lines up with the corresponding thing on left side. Including the canopy which is one piece. But it still built fairly quickly and I am happy with the outcome. So on to the pictures I am not sure why the canopy appears so cloudy in the pictures. It is not like that in real life. Here is a better view that also shows the small slit intakes I added ahead or the primary intakes; Next up is the newly remastered Anigrand Douglas XF5D-1 Enjoy
  10. Definitely not for the faint of heart or easily discouraged.
  11. Just a quick update. It only needed 1 coat of glass, so I did the decals this morning. I think that decals make the model . The decals were very thin but went on fairly well. So tomorrow I will give it a coat of Alclad Light Sheen, remove the masking, add the wheels and pitot tuba and it will be done
  12. I had to look up what chuffed meant , but I am Thanks
  13. I've seen worse, AKA Unicraft
  14. The only hurdle left is the decals. Finger crossed
  15. Major painting is complete. This may be sacrilege, but I decided that the white primer came out nice enough that it didn't need and over coat of white, so I went with it. The wings are Alclad Aluminum, the exhausts are Alclad Steel, and the lower tail is a mix of the 2. The white is an eggshell finish and I don't think it is glossy enough to take decals well so I am going to mask the wings and give it a couple coats of gloss. I should be able to decal by Friday. Back then.
