  1. Great progress, Guy. What did you use for the gloss black? Tamiya X1?
  2. I guess what @Robin-42 meant is this: cut off the kit glare shields and reposition them perpendicular to the curvature of the fuselage. HTH Quang
  3. PS: the two bottles behind the pilot's seat contain oxygene for the two passengers. Color code is: white. I hope it's not too late to modify. HTH Quang
  4. Hi Guy, Also worthy of note are the metal parts which will make your build much sturdier. I made the wrong decision to use the plastic spars for the butterfly tail. I accidentally broke one of the spar and had the most difficult time to fix it. The most annoying about this kit is that you get A LOT of spare parts left once the build is completed! I haven't made a build log for this kit but here are some pics of the finished model: a plane of the Patrouille de France in 1968. I hope you like it. If you have any question, just shoot. I'd be happy to help. Cheers, Quang
  5. Nice start on the Fouga. I happen to have built this AMK kit some months ago. It turned out to be one of my most pleasurable builds ever. The kit is loaded with details, some are tiny, at the verge of being microscopic. So check first when you clean up the parts. Of note are the minuscule stall strips on the wing leading edge which can pass to the unaware as injection flash. Best wishes with your build, Quang
  6. Agreed with you. Yet... sometimes we need to be reminded of the original purpose of a (our) hobby. It is to invest our time and money into something we do for sheer pleasure. For the 45 euro I paid for the KH Voodoo, I had months and months of pleasure correcting, building the kit and entertaining my friends at BM. A very cheap and profitable hobby indeed considering how many evenings at the pub 50 dollars can pay you.
  7. I don’t know about you but I’m getting older and I cannot afford to wait forever for a manufacturer to make the perfect Voodoo. I’d rather get what’s available however inaccurate it is and build it in my own lifetime.
  8. The glass nose on second photo doesn't look like nose on photo 3. So which one is A team and which one is B team? Or is it that we can't trust photographs any more?
  9. Great job on a reputedly unbuildable kit, Russ. All the more formidable that it’s brush-painted!
  10. Just caught this, friend Nikolay. Am following right behind Cheers, Quang
  11. I can picture Ol' Shep chuckling and nodding with approval from his big white cloud
  12. All one has to do is use the same raised lines as a template for add-on armor plates in plastic card. Where’s the problem?
