  1. Hi starspell, pls note that the box at the back of the hell hole (between the canopy hinges) might interfere with the inner structure of the canopy, depending whether you open/ close the cockpit. Good progress!
  2. can do that. Not sure how the moderators feel about advertising another website but if that is a problem then pls know that I am doing so with gooed intentions to help your build, else I will drop you a PM. anyway, you can see my step-by-step build report here: https://forum.largescaleplanes.com/index.php?/topic/80072-revell-super-hornet-with-lessons-learned/page/10/&tab=comments#comment-1197112 the kit has very good potential!
  3. hi starspell, there is quite some things to watch out for. I made a Rhino of VFA-31 and posted some stuff on the large scale planes site, for what that's worth. the most troublesome will be the 2 mm height that is missing in the fuselage to get all the inner workings squeezed into the outer shell. Even though hit is a challenging built, I had good fun! good luck with your build, I think I will follow how you get along. any idea which decals you will use? hugogo
  4. Hi peter, i think i have seen it before when the salt is not completely removed. It might be the left over salt residue that reacts with the clear coat...problem is now that you can't do a lot about that anymore.
  5. Never mind, just saw a picture where you had already done that. Cheers!
  6. Hey, that is looking Good now! Once you know the oddities then you will make it to the finish line. Oh Yes, pls remember that the turtle deck, i.e. the flat panel behind the Seat, must be flush with the edge where the canopy connects to the fuselage. So trim back the bulkhead behind the seat appx 1 mm. After this you will be ok for now!
  7. hi infofrog, you might also try to fit the HUD now, it might show that you need to take even more off the dash.
  8. hi infofrog, you are certainly making rapid progress on the Rhino! What you might want to check, what is unclear from the photo's whether you did that already or not, is the height of the front and rear bulkhead of that cockpit. With the HUD mounted, there is a conflict with the windshield, the aft bulkhead will conflict with the spine. So make sure to take at least 1 mm off of those bulkheads and also reduce the height of the instrument panel. Depending on whether or not you will have the cockpit open or closed, the glass and the ejection seat will conflict. So also the seat might need t
  9. Hi Rick, you might want to consider leaving them off. If you try to fit the landing gear door then you will notice that the tabs are no Good anyway.
  10. hi Hoosier, this kit will make you realize that skill level 5 is not exactly covering it! I am currently putting the final touches to my super hornet and have posted all issues I encountered on the LSP site, TRF might be referring to that one? Feel free to have a look if you want to see some of the fit issues coming. Look for super hornet with lessons learned and you will find it. By the way I was loving every minute of this build and the end result is very impressive. When the going gets tough, just remember that after this build you will have increased your skills to at least level 5!
  11. thanks for your comments all! Well Dennis, it was big enough to cause me headaches during the painting process. It filled up my painting booth completely with its 60 cm wing spaan: now it is standing on top of a clothing cabinet on the attic. Might hang it to the ceiling one of these days.
  12. hello 1:144 fans! for IPMS the Netherlands I have built a test shot of their incredible AN-225, the largest aircraft in the world. And also the largest aircraft I ever built. Complete build report can be found in MIP #3 of IPMS the Netherlands. Enjoy and have a relaxiing vacation.
  13. after the heat of summer, I was so exited to be able to access the attic again, that I spontaneously started to finish my Hawkeye. It took me like 2 year to finish it, including my moving to another house. So glad it's finally done. And here it is! thanks for looking! p.s. after this 1/144 challenge I am going to take a break from that and do an F-15E Strike Eagle in 1/48, let my eyes rest a bit...
