  1. Update one As usual the first place I started was the cockpit. Originally I was not going to do any extra work into the cockpit, however you can actually see quite a bit more than I originally thought through the glass. So the cockpit as it comes is very basic. To start the rear bulkhead is wrong as to where it sits and how it looks. The bulk head was trimmed and the doorway cut out. A hall was then made and and a door that will sit partially open when finished. I also added some panels based on photos to the sides of the cockpit as there was too much empty space, the real cockpit is very tight. The seats which are very basic also had arm rests added to them which they were lacking. I still have more work to do on the cockpit before it is done. Basic original cockpit Bulkhead for reference Original Bulkhead New Bulkhead Side panels Seats The model is designed to have a movable nose, but I am not going to use it so it will be glued in the up position. There is going to be quite a bit of filling and sanding needed for the nose section. Thanks for looking
  2. Have not decided yet if I'm going to attempt the shape issues Yes I definitely will, and I will take a look though your build for tips. I was going to by some AM decals anyways because the the Heller ones are thick and stiff, but this is another good option.
  3. This is my new project and I have wanted to build it for awhile, it is going to be a fun one. I seem to have a knack for old cruddy kits this will be the third large bird I am doing after the B-1B and SR-71. To start off I washed all the sprues in soapy water because they were very oily from whenever they might have been molded. The kit comes in a couple different color sprues. The panel lines range from sharp and crisp to wide trenches with no form so some filing and rescribing will defiantly be needed. The tires are rubber and not very good but I don't really care because I'm doing it in flight gear up. The clear parts are okay, I have seen worse. They are a bit scratched up but nothing a polish and some future can't fix. The decal sheet is huge, one of the biggest I have seen. I plan on getting some AM decals for this so I don't have to deal with these if they are cruddy. Stay tuned for updates hope to have one up soon
  4. This a Hornet I finished about three years ago. This kit has pretty good detail but it does have some fit issues in places. Extras include Aires cockpit and exhaust and Eduard exterior detail set. Thanks for looking.
  5. Thanks for the kind words guys, glad you guys like it.
  6. There aren't any major fit issues, the worst ones are the tail and the engines which aren't even too bad. Thanks for Looking guys, glad you like it
  7. I finished the a-10 a little over a year ago and loved the build. This is a great kit, with great detail; if your going to build an a-10 in 1/48 this would be one of the best options in my opinion. Extras used were Aires cockpit, Eduard exterior detail set, and Twobobs decals. Thanks for looking.
  8. This is the 1/48 Hasegawa f-4j with the experimental Ferris splinter camo. I also got Aires cockpit and exhaust and true details intakes and weapon pylon set. Paints used were model master acrylics. The kit was not a bad build, it is a bit old and there are some minor fit issues but overall is is an easy build. And it joins its friends on the shelf Thanks for Looking
  9. Great job on the splinter camo. I did this same scheme last year, and its looks so cool.
  10. Thanks for the looking guys, appreciate it.
  11. This is the 1/48 Hasegawa f-22, I finished it in august before moving. Extras used are aries cockpit, exhausts, and wheel bays. I also did some scratch building in the main and side weapon bays. I attempted to replicate the metallic paint effect, it came out okay. Hope you enjoy.

  12. Wonderful job on the kit. Iv'e built this kit myself and know how much work it is to make it look nice.
  13. Thought I was looking at the actual aircraft for those first few pictures, then I realized it was the model. Fantastic job, just a wonderful finish all around.
