    This model really stands out of the crowd. Wonderful, I like it!
  2. I see no Reynolds issue here. But a drag issue maybe. Nice, did not know about this aircraft (of course).
  3. Looks better than my 1/48. Very nice build.

    No, never, in my eyes. It's a beautiful aircraft, pure power and malignity. And it is perfectly built. Congrats to the owner, obviously a real artist.

    You have sharp eyes, David. Indeed this is very thin metalised tape. Thx for your post!

    Very nice, I like that camo a lot. Excellent!
  8. My latest build is an I-16 Type 24 from Eduard in 1/48 scale ("Profipack", so some PE-parts are provided, most of which will never see the light of sun again), airbrushed with Hataka acryl, weathered with oil colours. I used cable end sleeves and cannulas für the wing-mg's, pitot tube, prop hub and exhausts. The base is a cut out (with a band saw) piece of an old chopping board (teak wood, made in the Philippines, a present for our marriage in 1979 afaik) and a masked and airbrushed soviet star (new and not from the Philippines). Except the gap on the bottom between fuse and wing all parts fit nicely. The retracts almost drove me crazy (good that something or someone did that before, so no chance for this kit). Maybe I should have bought the metal aftermarket gear. Hope you like it, thanks a lot for looking.
  9. I guess this was the archetype for those "eggplanes".
  10. This looks quite woody and thus fly-able. Did you try (with a correct CG of course)? Maybe Mr. Reynolds is a problem. A wonderful work!
  11. You did that NPF very nice. I am quite impressed.
  12. Thanks a lot, now I will sleep better.
  13. Does anybody know how it was possible to close the nose (ha!) on the full scale aircraft? Seems impossible to me unless there was some secret mechanism or the whole radar thing was pushed far into the fuse before closing. (Sry I am no Phantom aficionado, this is a real question.)
