  1. Such a tidy, crisp job! Let’s see some colour now.
  2. I used the same brand and variety as François Verlinden did for his products. I insist in saying that PUR is not fit for manufacturing parts destined to be assembled with the kind of precision we have come to be accustomed with. I’m not here to argue, just to share my experience. Having said that, I would be delighted to follow the buildIng of a resin kit from start to finish. Any volunteer?
  3. I used to work daily with polyurethane resin for some years, moulding and casting figures. I suppose to know how the material behaves. I just wanted to share my experience. Yours may be different, so be it.
  4. If the resin they’re using is polyurethane, it will warp over time under its own weight. Not only the thin, delicate parts like undercarriage but also the solid, thin parts like wings.
  5. Now I’m asking myself if I should have bought the case XX instead. Just go ask an ice-cream lover if he’d prefer vanilla or chocolate.
  6. Aaah Bob! The inaccuracies and the misprints go on par with the discolored, fuzzy Kodakchrome 25 copies we used for documentation at the time. Sometimes the current modern kit technology just put me off. Everything’s so crisp and precise nowadays. You can even read the text on 1/72 stencils (with the correct font). I’d say forget the digital and bring back the fuzz! Cheers, Quang
  7. The Talon is finished long ago and I’ve also completed a few more builds since. Getting back to the F-102 subject, I unearthed my old Meng Case X after I read your post. The accompanying aftermarket items reveal that I initially planned to do a Calif ANG in silver scheme just like on the photo at the beginning of your thread. I even bought an ancient Microscale decals (with the correct USAF in insignia blue) for it. Anyhow I’m too far into the Demon to go back and start the Deuce. But will follow your build with much interest. Cheers, Quang
  8. Happy return, Nikolay. I’m working on a Hobby Boss 1/48 F3H Demon but still will follow closely your build as I also have a Meng F-102 in my stash. Cheers, Quang
  9. Thank you TD. You learn something new everyday. I’ll know next time I hear about Vietnamese alpine troops.
  10. The purpose of the ring is to collect the hot exhaust gas in order to cool them. In that effect, the gas collector ring is also a cooling ring.
  11. Vietnamese NAVY? I didn’t know Vietnam has aircraft carriers
  12. Superb interpretation of the Hergé ‘ligne claire’ style, Jur! I did know the Thom(p)son were twins but I didn’t know they were Siamese Cheers, Quang
  13. Great progress, Guy. What did you use for the gloss black? Tamiya X1?
  14. 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
