  1. I believe he means the auxiliary air intakes on either side of the nose just in front of the exhaust manifold.
  2. Welcome back to modelling! You will be on a rather steep learning curve for a while but to me that is where the fun is, learning. I like what you've done so far and look forward to your next build!
  3. Darn, 1/72. I have a couple of the 1/48 sword kits and I thought I may be able to help you out. I know it can be quite discouraging when the resin and plastic parts don't match up right. I hope you get to finish the T-38 in the above pics as that is one of the sweetest looking schemes I've seen on a T-38. Good luck ,and if I can be of assistance you need only ask. ......also Thanks for your service.
  4. Beautiful! That is one sharp looking T-38! Thank you for sharing. May I ask, what is the reason for your kit languishing on the shelf of doom? Have you seen the Wolfpack kit?
  5. Wow! What a nice looking,well built model! It looks like you have tamed the Hasegawa kit's many separate fuselage pieces perfectly. Great finish too!
  6. Nicely done! Such a delicate looking aircraft.
  7. What's this?! A U-21 sighting!!! My Dad flew these in Vietnam in '69. Actually he flew Guardrail RU-21's .You just don't see many pictures of these. Thanks for sharing!
  8. The Tamiya P-47 is by far the best Jug in 1/48 you will not be disappointed, and they did the best job representing the area you are asking about. I get all warm and fuzzy just thinking about it.....
  9. Very nice work! You are doing a great job!
  10. Do not trust them! They work for the Mrs. and they are trying to sell off your models!
  11. Your captions are quite funny! Seriously though, did someone pay you to take that kit off of their hands? Are you sure you wouldn't rather build the Tamiya 1/72 corsair? Tell you what, send me your address and I'll send you a 1/48 Tamiya corsair( I only build 1/48) to keep you from hurting yourself on the one you have.
  12. Nice! It looks great next to the mustang! Have you ever tried giving it a light flat clear coat? I also have used paper Q-tips for burnishing. cut them at an angle and you can get into the small corners and such. Hope you finish her soon!
  13. I am not all that familiar with the Tornado prototypes but the drawings in that link appear to show a shallower belly to the fuselage rather than a lowered wing. I know, they are just drawings. Warning! What follows is opinion! Not fact: I can't see a wing being lowered with respect to the fuselage unless the engine interferes with the main spar.
  14. I have both of those and they are different. The Ta152H canopy is thicker and has rounded corners where the bottom of the hood meets the windscreen. Ta152H= pressurized, Fw190D= not pressurized.
  15. I have the Eduard dual kit of the Mk. XVI Spitfire and I'm trying to find a set of markings that would allow me to build the bubble top without clipped wings in standard camouflage and during WWII. Did such a beast exist? I have not seen a picture of one yet except for restored examples. Any clarification would be greatly appreciated.
  16. I laughed so hard I was crying! I can just imagine the conversation that preceded that flight.
  17. Wow, that is beautiful! Absolutely love the weathering! one question. Is that the correct cooling fan? it seems a little robust for the A-4.
  18. Nice work! I have the same kit with the same aftermarket sets. You want to look at the leading edge of the wing as they seem to rounded to me. ?What do you think? I have started reshaping them by sanding the mating surfaces down and it has helped.

    Luftwaffe Mistel

    I read somewhere on some now defunct website that they used really large Tamiya-like magnets and flew them really close until they clicked together. .....Acually I have no idea what they used. I was thinking it would have to be an over head crane in a hanger but that only works if the finally result could get out of through the hanger doors.
  20. nicely done! The alteration of the raised fasteners really makes a difference! It gives a much more scale appearance.
