  1. Hello SouthViper... from Chicago USA. Aircraft and some armor here. Dennis
  2. Hello everyone... Im starting this WIP to fill another promise. About 6 weeks ago i received an email from a member. He was curious if I had ever been able to find a Monogram 1/72 F-8F Bearcat? I hadn't so he offered one of his kits. About a week later i received two items in the mail. The first a small package containing a baggie of plastic bits, instructions, and an old decal sheet. The second was an envelope with several photocopied Grumman plans and copies of the line drawings of the bearcat in 1/72. I know the vertical tail is short by a little bit. So this is why the drawings were sent with the kit. Also there were photo copies of the airwaves detail set for the kit. It will allow me to scratch build a better cockpit. You will note that I've already laid the fuselage to the drawing. You can see were i will need to extend the vertical tail/rudder. Copies of the Airwaves set. Emailing back and forth and many internet searches later I've decided my build will be of a F8F-2P in these markings. I know the universal rule never trust a profile without a photo. Well I found a Russian website that actually had a photo of this plane. this aircraft still exists in the U.K. and does fly from what i understand. I also posted a query in the cold war aviation section, asking for any information on the -2P ? https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235053866-f8f-2p-bearcat/ Now due to Life getting in the way and some illness slowing me down for a couple of weeks i was finally able to start on the plastic today. After an hour or so i had a reasonable better cockpit. I forgot to take a photo of the office outside of the fuselage. I will remedy that and post them soon. I also had to drill the skin of the plane in 3 places to simulate the camera doors. I did add the prominent ducting in the wheel bay its not perfect but its enough to simulate them. Here are some photo's of the real camera windows. A close up of the camera window. If you look closely its sunken in. So i will backfill the openings i have with plastic sheet. Once that is done i can do the 3 oil deflectors around the openings. The schematic for the photo. In closing i will say thank you to @72modeler for both the kit, and all the help researching it. Questions, comments, jokes, or stories are always welcome ? Dennis
  3. Grabbing my seat for this. Very happy and thankful you're doing a WIP for this. Dennis
  4. The Tamiya 1/72 Fw-190A3 comes with markings for Jg-2 and Jg-26. In 42 & 43. https://www.scalemates.com/kits/tamiya-60766-focke-wulf-fw-190-a-3--121602 Don't know if these are the correct markings for the raid though ? Dennis
  5. The coin says it all ... Those are pretty good looking and well detailed for the size.
  6. I dont have anything against the toon/egg styles of models personally. They aren't my cup of tea, so i most likely will never build one. However I can see why they're appealing. Though id like to see the Star Wars stuff or the Sub those might just win me over.
  7. Beautiful !!! Marvin was my favorite cartoon character.
  8. Great job overall but I really love the great job on the engines.
  9. As an honorary member of the Monogram Mafia i say well done sir !
  10. Great work Sturmovik ! Really good looking Warhawk.
  11. Wow ... Very well done on your car door Tiffy !
  12. As an Admitted sometimes Committed Corsair Nut I say Excellent work !
