    Libor's 1/72 scale flies...

    Hello Libor, An outstanding line-up. You averaged one finished model every 20 days! I think the He-111 is one of your best ever. By the way, do you ever plan on building anything in 1/48 or 1/32? Is there a particular reason why you enjoy 1/72? Thanks again for sharing.
  2. Another beautiful build Libor. Did you add additional rivets? Also, the white ink used by SBS Decals appears to be very opaque. Is this correct? I'm thinking about putting in a large order with them. Thanks again for showing us your work.
  3. What a magnificent way to start out 2019 Libor! By the way, will any of your recent builds end up in any of the magazines? Would like to know if you use any particular method for getting all of your radar aerials perfectly symmetrical in appearance - they look flawless.. Look forward to more of your builds in 2019. Happy new year.
  4. Is there any news? Any estimate when Hannants will have these? Thank you.

    MiG-21MF 1/72 Eduard

    Another beautiful build Libor. What color did you use for the cockpit? Also, you mentioned that you used GHW decals for the stencils. Did you mean HGW instead? Thank you again for sharing your work.

    Trumpeter P-47D Razorback

    Absolutely stunning build. The best P-47 model I've ever seen. Is there a chance you could explain how you painted and weathered this model?
  7. Hello Jonathan, Thank you very much for the update. It sounds like an excellent set. I'm glad the canopies will be vacuformed. By the way, a new Ginter series book on the F4H-1 by Tommy Thomason will be released this month. Thanks again.
  8. Does anyone know if there is a definite release date? This conversion was mentioned over at beyondthesprues on April 28, 2017; that's over 1 1/2 years ago. I missed the Cutting Edge release, so I definitely want this conversion. Will a nice decal sheet be included? Look forward to it!
  9. Amazing work - one of the best O/400 builds I've ever seen. Thanks for the photos of the jigs that you used - interesting stuff. Are the guns themselves also made by Eduard? Also, could you please tell me exactly how you applied the rigging? Looks very realistic. I never knew the O/400 was the same size as the Lancaster! Great comparison. Thanks!

    B2M2 Mitsubishi

    Hello Dov, Your B2M2 turned out really nice. I've been to the Choroszy website a few times and they have some really interesting pre-World War II subject matter. What did you use for the rigging? Thanks for posting.
  11. I thought this model was 1/72 when I first looked at it. Looks great - overall yellow Wildcats are new to me.. What did you use for the aerial wires? Looks really realistic for 1/144. Those Sweet models are unbelievable; I have several of their Wildcat kits and they are very nice. Is the P-38 the 1/144 Fujimi kit? Thanks for posting.
  12. Magnificent job. Love the variations in color. The weathering is outstanding. By the way, how long do you think you spent building this bird? I'm thinking of trying one of these 1/35 helicopters and you've given me motivation.
  13. Wow, yet another masterpiece Alan. For some reason, the Nell has always been my favorite World War II Japanese aircraft. You captured it beautifully. Are the panel lines done with thinned oil paint? Please keep the builds coming! Thanks Alan.
  14. Another beautiful build Reini78. I really like your subtle weathering. Do you use a silver pencil to simulate the paint chipping? Thank you for posting build reports.

    Large scale portions

    Every time I see the words "WNW Lancaster" I think of the enormous amounts of wasted time on the behalf of Hong Kong Models. This is time that they could have invested in other projects, like their British Phantoms. I think most people will be waiting for the WNW Lancaster, so I hope this project doesn't do too much damage to Hong Kong Models. Only time will tell.
