  1. Lets see about your skills.. Model assembled.............check Painted..................................check Decals applied....................check More models than I have completed in the last 2 years.....................check Modelling skills acquired, you may proceed to dazzle us with further builds!
  2. Wow! I can't believe those two pictures are of the same model! The wing just looks completely different between the two photos. Amazing! The detail of the kit appears to be quite nice and you are doing a wonderful job.
  3. I'm not entirely sure but I believe all of them have been designed.
  4. It's deja vu all over again... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIy1wRXXxYY&t
  5. To me this is the definitive Zero mark. Very nicely done! I think the weathering is perfect! Is that the Tamiya kit?
  6. Tamiya also released a 1/48 A6M3 a few years ago and it is a very nice kit.
  7. I'm no expert, but that black paint looks like it needs to be thinned a little more.
  8. Where's the model? All I see is a real aircraft.
  9. That turned out wonderfully! Your paintwork is sublime!
  10. First thing I would do is cut off those upward firing cowl guns. They did not exist. Dragon got the idea from a picture where the ladder for the pilot was sticking up above the cowl. Can't wait to see how it turns out! Edit: Sorry, didn't mean that to come out so harsh. I admire your builds greatly!
  11. So are we to believe that a red inlet cover was inadvertently left in place and no one caught it before engine run up and that it was sucked into the engine causing the jet to crash and afterwards was seen floating in the sea? Yeah, not buying that I'm afraid.
  12. Nice work! I think I'll try that on my N1K2-Jb George!
  13. Great picture! Thanks for sharing it!
  14. It appears that ICM forgot the vortex generators on the bottom of the horizontal stabilizer. They are shown in the instruction booklet but are not on the plastic. I'm looking forward to what the aftermarket will come up with. I've been waiting a long time to have a new Bronco!
  15. I agree, I could have softened up the edges just a bit. I didn't notice until it was way too late.
  16. I was shocked at how much of the weathering disappears depending on lighting. The colors are out of whack due to camera exposure.
  17. I tried that, turns out the cat is much faster and much more of a biter than I am, so I settled for stretched sprue.
  18. I Started this almost two years ago and it was going well until the resident feline decided to jump on top of it, ....twice. Lucky for me I don't clean off my desk very often and 18 months later, all the parts were found and repaired, to the best of my ability. I decided to try my hand at weathering a model for the first time. I've done minor weathering before but this was meant to be an effort to make it noticeable to others, and then my lack of photography skill seems to have bleached out most of it. Anyway I hope it is worthy of this site.
  19. Wow! Tamiya may have provided the basis for a good model but you took it the rest of the way into the goal! Excellent work!
  20. I have had a great experience with the Do215 the canopy fit is superb and overall the kit is quite enjoyable to assemble. I would recommend the Revel Germany release as it included the 20mm gondola whilst the original ICM release did not. Not sure if the later ICM release was updated. Here is mine approaching the painting phase with paper seat belts added to an out of the box interior. The teardrop shape on the lower cockpit window is from removing the fairing for the bomber version in the window. I'm pretty sure the Revell release fixed this as well.
  21. https://tailspintopics.blogspot.com/2016/07/grumman-f8f-bearcat-windscreen.html https://tailspintopics.blogspot.com/2010/12/f8f-bearcat-1-vs-2.html A couple of sites that may also be helpful with your build. Love what you've done so far!
