  1. Excellent job on the Hasegawa kit. The Vietnam camouflage scheme really suits the Voodoo. I started, but never finished, the Valom kit. Looking at your build make me think I should try the Hasegawa kit one day.
  2. The fit of the Hobby Boss kit is quite good. No putty required. Decals are of very good quality. Nice thing about the A-7 is that it comes in many colorful Navy schemes, which are available as aftermarket decals.
  3. Hi, This is my recently completed 1/72 Hobby Boss A-7A Corsair II. They are a few errors and omissions, but I'm going to call it done. Painted with Vallejo Model Air, followed by Tamiya clear and then a final coat of Tamiya flat. I used Tamiya Grey wash for the panel lines. In general, the Hobby Boss kit goes together well, although I found getting all the gear doors on a bit challenging. Hobby Boss does have a lot of rivets. There are hardly noticeable on the real planes, but add a bit of character to the model. This is the first A-7 I've built, but possibly not the last. I'm thinking that I may do a US Air Force version with camouflage. Maybe a 1/72 Fujimi A-7 if I can find one. Mark
  4. Agreed, the F-86 does look good in Spanish colors. The 528 belongs to the Japanese version. I thought of removing it, but I figured I would end up damaging the paint.
  5. Hi All, This is my 1/72 Fujimi F-86F. I am going to pull out my artistic license for this one. This was supposed to be a Japanese F-86. When I started to apply the decals, I was unable to get them to stick. I was going to paint them on, but decided that would be way too much work. So, in the end, I found some spare Spanish decals and decided to make a half Japanese/Spanish F-86. Anyways, here she is. Painted with Tamiya Chrome Silver and sealed with Tamiya Gloss. Panels lines were done with a mix of Tamiya black and gray washes. Mark
  6. One day I will make a CF-104 (there's one on display in the air museum near me in Ottawa). I currently have a HobbyBoss A-7A Corsair II on the bench, but once it's done, I think a single seat F-101 or RF-101 will be up next.
  7. Not sure, but I may do the G version in the future. Right now, I'm looking at completing all the century series fighters. I have the F-100, F-105 and F-106 done. Will either do the F-101 or F-102 next.
  8. Thanks Martin. I have seen both your impressive Thuds on BritModeller. I appreciate your comments. Mark
  9. Hi all, This is my recently completed Trumpeter 1/72 F-105D. The camouflage scheme was painted with Vallejo's Model Air Vietnam War paints. Decals are from the kit. Weathered with a diluted Model Master umber paint wash. Final coat is Tamiya semi-gloss.
  10. The pilot is actually in there, but the thick canopy and light reflection makes him hard to see. Thanks everyone for your comments.
  11. Hello All, As this is my first post on Britmodeller, I thought I'd start with something British. This is my recent build of Airfix's 1/72 Lightning F.2A. Painted with Tamiya colors and mounted on an Airfix display stand. Cheers, Mark
