  1. Thank you, that was very helpful!
  2. Hello everybody, I’m starting a 1/48th Revell CH-53 and I’d like to reproduce the rivets on the fuselage. Both Archer and HGW make them in resin on clear decal film, but I’ve received an unsatisfactory feedback from a friend of mine about the HGW item. Has anyone of you ever used Archer rivets, so that you can give me a feedback on them? Thanks in advance! Lorenzo.
  3. Exactly, all the rigging attachment points are eyeholes; most of them are provided as photoetched parts in the kit; the missing ones (those on the tail booms and landing gear) were made with copper wire rings. The fishing line goes through the eyeholes and the Albion Alloys tubes as shown in this picture: Cheers! Lorenzo
  4. Gary, I didn't count the hours I put in the rigging process but I can tell you it was a big number I started with the rigging of the engines struts because it would be almost impossible to reach them once installed between the upper and lower wings. After gluing the engines and the upper wing, I did the rest of the rigging between the wings. Only then, I glued the tail booms and rigged the rest of the plane (tail, landing gear, tail booms) I used 0.10 mm fishing line; the turnbuckles were made with 0.5 mm Albion Alloys aluminum tube, painted with Humbrol Gold. The fishing line was painted with Humbrol Flat Black, so that I could easily wipe it off the model in case some paint would drip on the surfaces (the model was painted with Gunze). Hope it helps…
  5. Hi everybody, this is a Copper State Caudron G.IV, 1/48. Figures come from the Eduard range and some of them were slightly modified; everything else was scratchbuilt...hope you like it...
  6. Hi everybody, this the last model I completed. It's the Kinetic Harrier T4, loaded with Reskit rocket launchers. Figures come from the Eduard range and were slightly modified; everithing else was scratchbuilt...hope you like it...
  7. Good evening to everybody. I'm Lorenzo, I write from Italy and I just joined up, even though I've been following Britmodeller for a few years. I started modelling since I was a child and I have never serioulsy healed, so I'm still here gluing plastic pieces together... I build airplanes in every scale and belonging to every historical period; sometimes I also try to paint figures, but my main interest is planes. Regards, Lorenzo.
