  1. Interesting subject and nicely done. I find the aluminum cowling convincing
  2. Thank you ! Challenge of the day: Repeat 10 timesÖsterreichische Luftstreitkräfte . Just kidding of course, I really like Austria, its beautiful landscapes and its aircraft
  3. Waoo, thank you !! It's not too complicated to get that finish, just a lot of rubbing before, during and after ; and more importantly the Gloss black Primer is the key.
  4. Thank you ! The pilot is from Pilot rpelicas as well but comes separately. The ladder was made from scratch from pictures. You find PE ladders but they looked to flat to me
  5. Hi there, This is the 1/48 scale Pilot Replicas kit. A real pleasure to build! Among the modifications I made: - Seamless resin intake and pilot from the same manufacturer - Homemade seat harnesses, ladder and pitot tubes, - Replaced the exhaust with a Bubble Tea straw because the original one is too thick, Details in the cockpit and in the landing gear bays are good enough but there is room for improvement. The one thing that bugged me are the rivets on the fuselage: they get distorted and fade away with the curve of the fuselage. Also, part 59 was missing or at least I did not find it. This part depicts the bumper on the bottom of the fuselage and is very easy to scratch build with a bit of styrene, so no big deal. But except for these, there is nothing much to complain about. I liked the luxurious and clear instructions, the excellent Cartograf decals and the PE frets with a sticky transparent film that prevents the parts to spring away when cutting them. The kit is well designed and everything fits. It was the first time for me painting with Alclad, and like everyone I was bit concerned about peeling off the paint during masking, but with a good layer of black primer and polishing, the paint is rock solid! The orange dayglo comes from Faskcolor, and Tamiya paint was used for the Austrian roundels (yes, the Luftstreitkräfte is the Austrian AF, but please don't ask me to pronounce that ) , Hope you like it. Antoine
  6. Amazing what you managed to get - very nice !
  7. Really impresive the result that you managed to get from that kit !
  8. Very nicely done ! How would you qualify the build of the kinetic kit?
  9. Fantastic work and great explanations on your website !
  10. Thank you so much - that will be really useful !! I'll probably paint the side cap in a green/ brown tone similar to the color of the parachute.
  11. Beautiful and very classy presentation on that glossy black socle
