  1. Nice job Johnson - opened canopy looks really more interesting than if it was closed.
  2. Shading of panels looks so good and gives it nice weathered feel. I like the yellow part on the tail. Cheers, S.
  3. Looking very good Cliff, decals will now add some vividness and details. Cheers, S.
  4. Pretty good kit, fit is generally OK as I remember. (I did it some 7-8 years ago) Main wheels though are wrong for bis version - Zvezda gave wheels for R/MF in this kit - on following photo, left wheel is correct for bis, while the right one is for R/MF (and that one was given in Zvezda kit) Conversion is not so complicated, it requires just a bit of thin styrene rings... Cheers, S.
  5. Italeri 1/72 P-51D Mustang, Guatemalan Air Force - Extratech etched set - Gunze & Tamiya acryllics - Aztec Models decals - Artistic oils wash - MIG pigments for subtle weathering - landing light made from Kristal Klear Cheers, S.
  6. It definitely does the job - so far most successful solution Cheers, S.
  7. Those white tire sidewalls on "Old Crow" remind me of US oldtimer cars - such a beautiful detail! Cheers, S.
  8. Aaaaaand... DONE! Remaining parts were glued in the meantime (landing gear, canopy, antenna), and painting of details was done. There are few small glitches here and there but nothing so important and visible... It was actually pretty enjoyable build - this GB idea definitely moved me from sleep state with this kit, and made me to build kit much faster than I'm used to. Thanks to all for the support and kind words during work, it gave me a good push. This arc with holes (canopy strengthener?) is Extratech etched part Landing gear covers from Extratech etched set with nice rivet details... Landing light was made from Kristal Klear Anti-collision lights were painted with Tamiya Clear Red, Green and Yellow/Orange mix over Chrome Silver base Posing with reference object Cheers, S.
  9. No no, of course not, you just maybe missunderstood me - I thought if you hypotheticaly did make two sets, one set could be forwarded to Heller to maket brand new mould of it - that's how well you did all of this work so far
  10. Jeroen, if you only made duplicates of all of these scratchbuilt parts, you could send them to Heller to make new mould of it! Brilliant job so far, hat down for the effort! Cheers, S.
  11. It looks really gorgeous - clean and tidy, while orange sections break the single colored fuselage and wings. Cheers, S.
  12. Finish on Volvo's body is perfectly glossy! GX100 is a must as I recon from various examples. Body color is also very nice, it suits it.
  13. Shiny finish you achieved looks very good, it will be a nice add-on to your display case!
