    Cold War US Navy/Marine Corps jets. What Am I missing?

    Just bagged a Revell A7 Corsair for £4.81 on eBay! I think that the kit dates back to the 60s, but for that price it is worth a punt.

    Not much of a review though is it? I'm prepared to forgive factual inaccuracies as long as the thing goes together properly.

    Tamiya colours for Russian blue camouflage

    Anyone know what the Tamiya codes would be for this scheme? Being ever so slightly colour blind isn't helping either!

    North American RA 5C Vigilante. Budget Bomber Build

    Hmmm.... Spraying complete, but I don't know if I am happy with it. The Tomcat (in for touch up) looks better in my opinion. I've also developed a deep hatred of Tamiya and Humbrol white acrylic paint. The poor Hawk "Test Pig" took a hell of a thrashing on this build. The least I could do was to take it's picture. Touch up to follow. My son clearly likes it though as he as already claimed it, and has told me to move the (far superior) Flanker out of his room to make space.

    A-10 Thunderbolt II

    How much weight is needed to tip it back? If it is only a gram or two you could load up the noses of the weapons with Liquid Gravity.

    Su-33 Flanker

    Excellent. I've already done the Italeri one and have an SU-34 in the stash. Depending on your findings I may have to get another.

    After all but obliterating any surface detail whilst trying to fill and sand my way through the Grand Canyon on the top of the fuselage I am going to try and get back some detail by colour pre-shading some of the larger panels. Also, the second cockpit is lost in the body of the aircraft, so I've scribed the shut lines and pre-shaded it too. Not had much fun airbrushing the white. Plenty of "guano" that I've had to sand out. Next up some grey. At last.

    As a slight departure from topic, but not too far... The Revell Osprey. I know it is an older kit and the Hasegawa is more representative of the service aircraft, but is it any good?

    Another Revell 1\72 Concorde

    Nice. Where do you keep something like that?

    I can do props. I'm not racist.

    An old Hunter

    Is it as bad as the MisterCraft nightmare?

    Filling, sanding and priming done. I could do more but 1) I've had enough 2) The amount of filler and primer used is in danger of costing more than the kit 3) What little detail there was is more or less obliterated. I'll try and paint it back in with different shades of grey. I can't believe how "fast" this thing looks! A couple of facts. 1) It first flew 60 years ago! 2) There is only a 19 year gap between it and the Zero in the foreground.
