  1. Leave it to the Japanese to have interesting paint schemes. Great finish and photography.

    Tamiya 1/48 Bf109 E4

    Nice theme to the pictures, great effect. Mottling looks perfect.
  3. Great finish on a little bird. Beaufitul.

    ZM SWS 1/48 Phantom

    I will add they are a bit more complex in design, like the cockpit for an example. The scribing is top notch and reduced the need for a lot of aftermarket add ons.
  5. I think the panel lines look fine. Great job on the kit.

    1/72 Fujimi A-7D Corsair II

    Another kit the other manufacturers have not done justice to. You've done a great job on a great aircraft.

    Kittyhawk RF-101C 1/48

    You've made a great save there. Love that 101, too bad it's under the radar of most kit manufacturers.

    Thinning my Future Gloss

    I've been using Future Floor wax with my airbrush for years and although usually satisfied, it left me wondering if it could be improved. Now I've played with a homebrew formula that I have had good results with. For the homebrew I'm using 2/3 bottled water and 1/3 Isopropyl Alcohol with a few drops of Flow-aid. For a few years I kept tropical and marine fish and did a lot of reading of the makeup of water. I'm of the opinion using distilled water is not necessary as most bottled water would have mineral counts very low. By the way the other 9% of the bottles Isopropyl Alcohol is water. My ratio for mixing homebrew to Future is about 1:1 and for me the Future seems to cure much faster and very hard within two hours you can handle the model without leaving fingerprints. I amy quite happy with the results.

    1/48 Focke Wulf Fw-190 Anton

    I enjoy the side by side comparisons. Eager to see both come together. Nice cockpit work.

    1/32 Revell GR4 Tornado

    Stellar workmanship. Love the overall effect. To Hell and back.
  11. That one is new to me. Explain please.
  12. Nice looking jet, your build is a real sales pitch for this kit. Carry on.

    Spitfire Mk.IX Hasegawa 1:48

    No matter the kit, they all look nicer built than never started. Very Well Done.

    New 1/48 Tamiya Spitfire Mk.I?

    Your comments and questions would be far better put to Tamiya than asked on some forum that would likely never get filtered back to Tamiya.
