  1. Thanks All for the kind words cheers Bill
  2. Thanks Guys I Used Alclad Polished Aluminum over Gloss Black for the tanks...Trying to simulate unpainted Fuel tanks. Cheers Bill
  3. Greetings This is another Virus build. I have come to really Like these Special Hobby releases. This one is mostly out of box. (Except FOD Insert) and Replacement Pitot Tubes. Used wine seal material for seatbelts. 1/72nd Super Mystere modified in 70's. Yom Kippur war markings. (Why Camouflage??) I Used Vallejo Paints out of Israeli Box set, Clear coated in Future and Flat coated with decanted Testors Dullcoat Trying a Black Background for photos just to see effects...Looking for Feedback on this Please. Kit decals were absolute fantastic. Easy to handle, settled well with Solvaset and no color feedthrough. Uschi Steel powder for exhaust area. Thanks for Looking Feedback appreciated Regards Bill
  4. Thanks for all positive feedback. I did repaint the crowbar interior green. cheers Bill
  5. Completed this kit Out of Box. Including Kit decals which are Great. This is a Very nice kit and would recommend to modelers. Xtracrylics , Future and Gunze Lower Grey. Overcoated with Testors decanted Dullcoat. IFF Antenna is from Smoke colored Invisible thread pulled tight in Fuselage. Pretty hard to see in Photos First time using hairspray technique for wing root wear. I was very modest in wear. Sepia filter to try and emulate WW II style Forgot to add I did have to add a bit of material to let the rear glass sit correctly. About 1mm height. Thanks for Looking and Comments Always welcome Cheers Bill
  6. Greetings Love It. Super Job on that Aircraft. CHEERS Bill
  7. Many Thanks to all who have posted. If I run across another Prop somehow, I ll replace with correct angles. Cheers Bill
  8. I'm not sure..Props were assembled straight from box...ton of effort to align. (maybe a reverse option ) Thanks All for Positive feedback Bill
  9. Greetings All Why Virus Build...Started 1 March-Completed 21 March 2020 On Virus Lockdown, Shut-in, Hibernation, Self exile ,quarantine... etc etc etc Classic Airframes Kit . Decals provide by Al Grimm (Thank You Sir) Mostly Out of Box added Albion alloys tubes for Guns. Clear sprue and painted bulbs for wing formation lights(ended up being best part of build) This Aircraft was flown by the Pittsburgh Squadron of the PA Air National Guard in 1954(year I was Born. Freehand Paint mix with Tamiya Rattle can Bright red and Tamiya Rattle canYellow..Decanted ,Mixed,Sprayed. GX 100 Clear coat ...Final coat Mr Hobby Spray Semi -Gloss..Decanted and Sprayed. I believe this was used as a Target Tug during William Tell in that Year. Hard to find Photos of P-51H aircraft with extra tanks. I figured this Aircraft would need them for flying to Gunnery Exercise Thanks for Looking Comments always Welcome On to next project Cheers Bill
  10. Thank You Nev. I also believe you will be hard pressed to find Anniversary painted aircraft showing much wear and tear...They are show birds. A-10 Scheme will be upcoming. Cheers Bill
  11. Thank You all so much for the positives. next project is P-51H from Classic Airframes. So far a bit of a modeling challenge. Nowhere near the Revell F-15E class. PA ANG from Pittsburgh markings. Thanks again for all the encouragement. Cheers Bill
  12. Thank You I agree,The Red seems to be the most interesting Bill
  13. Thanks for the Compliments guys. I do not plan on building the other schemes as this is one very Large Aircraft. Not enough space for 3. Cheers Bill
  14. Hello The Revell F-15E is one of the best model kits I have built. This kit is precise and construction is minimum challenge. The detail is Super. The Furball decals are fantastic. The interior detail is great, however the exhaust components are a work of art. Vallejo Grey and I used Uschi powders for the Exhaust components. I used Alclad for the metal surfaces. This D-Day scheme is fantastic and I loved it immediately. Thanks for Looking Comments Always welcome. Cheers Bill
  15. Thank you all very Much. The word I wanted to use on the last response was "Shelf." Regards Bill
  16. Thank You Guys for all your Responses. It adds to the completion, rather than Just heading to a Ahelve Cheers Bill
  17. Thank you all for the positive feedback cheers Bill
  18. This s the AZ model with Resin . Nice Surface detail. Some really bad flash that was just more than extra plastic. I used UHU tack materials for Camo worms to accomplish the scheme. All done with Vallejo Air Paints from their Israeli Box set. Kit decals were really good and settle down perfect using Solvaset (my go to solution). I used Future as my gloss for the decals and decanted Mr Hobby Rattle can Matt and Semi-Gloss mixed together for final flat finish. Mostly clean colors but added some lightening here and there for modulation and used som Tamiya weathers sets for wear & Tear. F.O.D covers from Milliput and red Door trim with marker. Thanks for Looking Comments are always Welcome Bill D
  19. Thank you all for the positive feedback. Happy New year Bill
  20. Thanks I used Testors Enamel..Ford Engine Blue. Be Aware,I could not get it to settle in the panel lines. Was too far along to strip and try over. Regards Bill
  21. Thank you for the feedback. For some reason the Enamel paint would not fill the panel Lines. Even though the aircraft was primered in Tamiya spray white. The blue would not fill the panels. Strange finish? Bill
  22. I wanted to bring something back from Telford this Year and this kit looked really cool. This was not a Hard kit but there were a few curves tossed here and there. Dry-fitting and Sanding were the word of the day. I added some details to the landing gear such as retractors and braces, using Albion alloys real small tubbing. Kit decals were used and the were mostly very good except the red forward sections on the nose, I used some Vallejo red for touch up. Checking steady-ness of my hands. This was a Beautiful aircraft and I am quite happy with the small version I have. PS the Paint is much smoother than the Magnified photos reflect. Thanks for taking a look and Comments welcome Happy New Year Bill
