  1. Thanks @thorfinn, you are most kind. The shiny, white-winged schemes are certainly cool ... and the tiger-striped one .. and the red one ... and .... so many great schemes to choose from
  2. Wow, that is a superb display of modelling skill - fantastic!
  3. Really nice result that captures the look of the original very well ... and a sharkmouth too! Well done
  4. Thank you all for your kind comments on this old post! The Hasegawa Starfighter is a really nice kit and the F-104 always looks fantastic in model form. @Corsairfoxfouruncle I used Gunze H330 BS381C/641 Dark Green, which I thought had a nice slightly olive shade to it that worked well for the elusive RCAF dark green Thanks @kapam, I went for the napalm tanks as a weapon load because I thought they would contrast nicely with the drab camo scheme and I think it worked out OK. I'm no expert either but I'm sure that the high wing loading would have made for a high landing speed! @Pete in a shed the 'pink splatt' looks a lot more red in real life! It's the unit marking for Number 421 Sqn RCAF, a Native American head with tomahawks: https://www.heraldry-wiki.com/heraldrywiki/wiki/No_421_Squadron,_Royal_Canadian_Air_Force Chris
  5. Very nicely done indeed! Excellent finish that looks spot on to me - well done
  6. Very nicely done - excellent finish and weathering!
  7. Really nice PFM, in a less-often seen set of markings. Great finish and weathering too! Well done
  8. I would never have guessed that those two beauties started life as the old Heller kits very nice work indeed!
  9. Very nicely done! The twin-seat Flanker looks sleak and menacing in that dark grey scheme.
  10. I'd give another vote for Selwyn's suggestion of Future and food colouring. I've had good results with this technique and, if you don't like it, you can strip back with window cleaner Chris
  11. Great concept, very nicely realised. That racing finish really suits the MiG-3
  12. Very nice work - really lovely job on the SEA finish
  13. That's a super Super Hornet (sorry, couldn't resist :-)) Very nice work - I particularly like the photos against a sky background Well done!
