  1. Thank you so much for your comments and for sharing the enthusiasm about the Tigercat!
  2. Thanks! It's a great addition to any collection. Highly recommended.
  3. Hi, thanks for considering my build as inspiring! The Tigercat is a beautiful airplane, and this kit turns out a good representation of it. Regards.
  4. Thanks for your comments. Still finding my way back to the hobby...
  5. Hello, here is my finished Tigercat, part of a GB with 4 finished kits that actually posed for a family photo!
  6. Hello Oliver, thanks for your comment. I used Vallejo Air Aluminium, and acrylic wax for the finishing layer. Regards.
  7. Hello, this is a model I finished last year around october. Hasegawa rebox, nice kit and good decals, tried not to overdo the weathering.
  8. Hello, here is my recently finished Heller Mirage IIIC, 1:48 scale. An old kit, with tricky thick decals that only Tamiya extra thin glue was able to set. Regards.
  9. Hello, I just got back to the hobby too, 18 years hiatus. Back in the eighties and nineties there was near to zero information available on any subject you would want build, save for the odd copy of FSM magazine or a few aviation books with poor quality photos. Since coming back to the hobby, I try to gather the most information about the plane I am building, both from photos of the real thing (where colors may vary from exposure saturation etc) and from built models. This allows me to decide which color feels right, and also some mistakes can be avoided. Congratulations on your build, I would not spend time correcting it, as it can get frustrating really fast. Keep it as it is, it will remind you of the nice time spent building it, and also of the need to do some previous research before starting a new build. Regards.
  10. Nice builds, portraying uncommon colors and markings, well done!
  11. What Josip said, if you could turn out a 1:72 kit like this, shift to 1:48 and you will feel less limitations. 1:32 would be even better. Congratulations on your build!
  12. Thanks for taking your time to post a comment, really appreciated. I had to cope with a few mistakes during assembly and painting, but overall I am very happy with the way the kit turned out. 3rd kit since coming back to the hobby... Regards.
  13. Thanks for all the great feedback! This is uncharted territory for me and I guess for a lot of modellers, as is kitbashing, which is another area I plan to try out!
  14. Ooooh I see a SW race pod with those two fairings! It would be a crime to waste those! I myself smugle parts from the recycle bin to the attic... how low can you get...
