    Monogram 1/48 Bell AH-1S Cobra

    Thanks chaps! The rivets are set AR88014 Cheers Jon
  2. Hello All, Just finished this. It's the Monogram 1/48 AH-1S, with Isradecals decals, Werner's Wings resin exhaust and a ton of scratchbuilt additions by me. The kit has been rescribed and all the rivets are Archer Fine Transfers. The final finish is Tamiya XF-59. A full description and more photos are here: https://jonbryon.com/monogram-1-48-bell-ah-1s-cobra/ Comments welcome. Thanks for looking. Jon

    1/48 GR.5 Harrier markings

    These are Sky Decals: https://jonbryon.com/hasegawa-1-48-vought-f4u-7-corsair/ I found them very nice to use. I exclusively use Mr Setter as the only decalling agent. My main issue was that they really cram the markings on the sheet and because of this they are not easy to cut out. Jon

    Hasegawa 1/48 F4U-5 Corsair

    That video is fantastic - thanks for sharing! The Catalina, Harpoon and Neptune look particularly striking. If only someone made decals for them in 1/48... Jon

    Hasegawa 1/48 F4U-5 Corsair

    Thanks for the comments everyone! Jon
  6. Lovely! Was there something wrong with the kit canopy? Jon
  7. Here's the last of my trio of GSB aircraft: Hasegawa's 1/48 Vought F4U-5 Corsair. The decals are from the kit. The paint is Mr Color 71. Some small modifications have been made: scratchbuilt exhausts, resin wheels by CMK, resin aerials, lights have been replaced with clear plastic and the pitot is from Albion Alloys tubing. More details at https://jonbryon.com/hasegawa-1-48-vought-f4u-5-corsair/. Cheers Jon
  8. Just finished this today. It's Hasegawa's 1/48 Grumman F6F-5 Hellcat finished in Mr Color 71 and with the kit decals. The cowling is by DMold and the wheels are True Details - sadly they solidly stuck in position before I could rotate them so the flats are correctly orientated. I also lost a pylon stub during polishing. More details at https://jonbryon.com/hasegawa-1-48-grumman-f6f-5-hellcat/. Thanks for looking Jon

    Hasegawa 1/48 F4U-7 Corsair

    Thanks everyone. The finish is simply Tamiya X-35 Semi-Gloss sprayed through an Iwata RG-3. The exhaust and streaking (AK Interactive Streaking Grime) were applied on top of this. It's quite rough under magnification, but looks okay with the naked eye. Jon
  10. Hi all, Here's my latest finished aircraft: Hasegawa's 1/48 Vought F4U-7 Corsair. The decals are by Sky Models and the paint is all Mr Color. The wheels are CMK, the blade aerial is plastic card, and the T-shaped aerial is from Quickboost. More details at https://jonbryon.com/hasegawa-1-48-vought-f4u-7-corsair/.

    Feb issue of SAM is also missing the end of the J-22 article. It just cuts off mid-sentence! Jon

    Cos it costs a fortune - double what a Kinetic Mirage III goes for Jon

    Yep; I'm using it as a shorthand for the radar-less versions (I would like to do a French one). Jon

    I'd really like a Mirage 5. The Wingman Models version was far too expensive Jon
