  1. It should read FS34079, not FS34097. Jens
  2. Nice looking Hunter. I think the biggest problem with the wing leading edge inserts are the instructions. I glued the inserts as seperate parts on the respective wings before glueing the leading edges. That way I got an early straight wing leading edge with minimal filling and sanding. Jens
  3. That zap, to me, looks like an island with palm trees - sort of like the Italian 150 Gruppo badge, not it's not quite the same. Jens
  4. I didn't put words in your mouth! I merely stated in general that decal instructions are not to be trusted. Is there a reason for this slightly hostile tone, or am I missing something in translation here? Jens
  5. Yes, the Xtradecal instructions show orange leading edges. However, has anyone ever seen a colour photo of that? I have never seen an A-4 with leading edges in other colours than the Corroguard, which does look a bit dark in some pictures. Never blindly trust decal instructions, especially not those from Xtradecals. Jens
  6. How can you tell the leading edges are orange? Jens
  7. You can see the instructions here: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10142326 HTH, Jens
  8. How about glueing a micro magnet into its nose wheel and placing it over a suitable plate of metal? Unless the nose wheel is hollow and you can fill that with weight too (I did that on my Monogram B-24). Jens
  9. That's what I meant with "a larger engine" (English isn't my first language ). I wasn't sure how to describe it, but it sure wouldn't fit underneath the G-6/14 cowling without some modification. Jens
  10. I am rather sure the G-10 wings would fit a G-6/14 fuselage (and vice versa), but cowling panels are different. They are basically aerodynamic covers for the engine, and the larger engine of the G-10 would not fit underneath the G-6/14 cowling panels. I am unsure whether it was possible to fit a G-10 engine to the G-6/14 firewall (surely the engine bearers should be replaced too). The Bf109K-4 that landed on the Danish island of Bornholm in May 1945 had a G-6/14 panel on one side, but don't ask me how they made it fit. Jens
  11. The cowling on the G-10 is quite different to that of the G-6/14. As long as it has the bulges in front of the canopy it's almost certainly a G-6/14 (exceptions are limited to a few airframes fitted with whatever was at hand in the closing stages of the war). Jens
  12. It's not a G-10. It's a G-6/14. I surely wouldn't trust the WNr unless it was clearly visible on the aircraft. Jens
  13. No, you clearly did not know the differences between a block 30 and a block 50 F-16. You claimed the block 30 had the heavy MLG, remember? As I have mentioned the heavy MLG is not limited to changes in the MLG itself. It also affects the shape of the lower fuselage - and necessitates the use of bulged main gear doors. While it might be too late for your model to fix it, hopefully my information would prevent anyone who would want to build a correct block 30 F-16 to use your model as a reference. Fair enough that you are bashing my models. I think one of the differences between the two of us is that I work from references including pictures of the real thing. That is why my paint schemes follow the lines of those on the real aircraft, and it is also why my models are not weathered as if they were AFVs. But hey, whatever floats your boat. Have a nice day. Jens
  14. Well, the wheels are not the only difference I see. Besides, it's more than just bolts. It's the shape of the entire lower fuselage that is different. Ignorance is bliss, I guess. Jens
  15. Nope, it doesn't have the heavy MLG. I'm not a rivet counter either, but I do notice the basic differences between the various versions. Jens
