  1. Very nice outcome, i have one of these lovely little kits in my stash. The rigging is really effective, would you share your technique? Do you drill through the wings and pull the rigging through, then fill after trimming?
  2. This is my first post-war build, the Phantom has always been a favourite of mine and when i had the chance to acquire the Tamiya kit at a good price i could not resist. By Tamiya's very high standards i found some of the structural fitment relatively poor; nothing that cannot be cured by filling, sanding and some scribing, but certainly not as good as some of their more recent products in 1/32 scale. Markings are from the kit, paint is Tamiya acrylic, wheels are resin after-market (kit wheels are rubber).
  3. If it helps, i took these photos of the plane at Goodwood (Westhampnett) in 2012
  4. 1/72? Are you sure! Lovely execution of the paintwork, really nice model, congrats
  5. Thanks Greg, i used Tamiya XF62 Olive Drab mixed with some XF-4 Yellow Green regards Gavin
  6. Here is the Eduard Kittyhawk IV (P-40N-20) NZ3220, No.18 Squadron RNZAF, Bourgainville, 1944. The model is pretty much out of the box, Eduard added some nice photo-etch and resin detailing to the original kit (i cannot recall who made the original mouldings). The only thing i changed was to use home-made masks for the insignia and white identification stripes. This is quite an expensive kit (mine was a Birthday present!), but i think the quality of the kit, the instructions, choice of markings and different variants you can build justify the cost.
  7. Really effective painting & weathering, the cowl/cockpit and inner wing surfaces are especially nice - like the method for the spinner, might have to dig out my drill!
  8. Very nicely weathered, subtle and effective
  9. Great job with the colour scheme, excellent execution
  10. Nice outcome, i enjoy looking at some of the rarer subjects that crop up from time to time, you're braver than me!
