  1. I hope so too...but I'm holding off from buying this version in the hope they will release the regular bomber. Jon
  2. That's amazing! I spent several hours on Google and did not come across that. Must remember to try Bing as well next time. Much appreciated! Jon
  3. Great to see one of these finished in such striking markings. I am about to start the same kit in the same decals at the end of the month. I have not managed to track down a photo yet - do you happen to recall where you found the photo online? Many thanks for any help! Jon

  5. I don't know why they don't make them with a square section beam to prevent twisting. I too rarely use them because they fall off so easily. Jon
  6. Thanks. Here are some photos of the real thing:
  7. Here's my latest build: Monogram's 1/48 Lockheed F-80C Shooting Star. The kit has been rescribed and is covered in kitchen foil. Some markings are from Microscale and some have been created using stencils cut on my Silhouette Portrait. There's a full and extensive write up here: https://jonbryon.com/monogram-1-48-lockheed-f-80c-shooting-star/ It looks okay from more than a foot away, but very ugly close up. Still, it was an experiment, and one I shall not repeat but was glad to undertake. Jon
  8. I just wish that in 1/48 they'd expanded their F-8 range to include the early and recon versions. Come to think of it, given Hobby Boss' failure, I wish they'd done some early A-7s too... Jon
  9. Am I right in thinking the last post-WW2 aircraft Hasegawa tooled in 1/48 was the F-22? If so, it's been 10 years... Jon
  10. I wish the camera work had a greater depth of field. It felt like nothing was in focus! Jon
  11. Sorry to jump in on this thread, but I'm thinking of getting a Portrait 2. Where do you get sheets of masking material? I'm in the UK. Thanks for any advice! Jon
  12. Hmmm...wonder when this will see the light of day. The MiG-9 has been in the CAD stage for ages, and is still not released... Jon
  13. https://jonbryon.com/2018/06/19/on-increasing-productivity/ Thanks Jon
