  1. Another one is ready. I had Revell kit without decal and part of Italeri decal without kit. Maybe kit is undersized, maybe decal oversized, maybe both things together... With Hasegawa "brother in arms" And with Starfix F-5C Skoshi Tiger
  2. It means "from scrap and crap" i.e. from pieces of plastic, wire, syringe needles and other stuff, that missed the bin It took near 15 minutes to make new gear strup from pieces of trash that i found on my working table
  3. As far as i know, Alclad metallics are not easy, so i never ever thought to use them. Now i use Tamiya aerosoles to paint models in Aluminium, than different shades of Aluminium and Chrome Silver to accent panels. I also saw B-29 painted by AK Interactive True Metal and going to try them. About hard assembling of Valom RF-101 - once upon a time i built YuMTK Yak-28 and FROG/NOVO P-39 from late moulds of Baku Plant, so i'm not afraid of Valom
  4. Well done! I'm going to build two Valom RF-101C, and your one is a good motivation to do it finally
  5. Thanx! I will built two more RF-101C later - this time Valom kits. I want to build one of them in SEA camo and another in NMF as an Able Mable plane, so I will order custom decal for 'Mary Ann Burns' or 'Georgia Peach'
  6. Yes, twenty year ago i used this kit as a teaching material in re-scribing, so panel lines are deep and wide
  7. Looks great! I build "Mitch the Witch" from Eastern Express (ex-FROG) kit now.
  8. Another built kits. This September i caught COVID and spent more than month at home with my family. Surely, i built some kits with my son. I had not all needed paints, so some of kits now are waiting to be painted. I didn't try to build perfect models, just to make "minus one box - plus one model on the shelf". First, Hasegawa RF-101C. My friend built it nearly twenty years ago and painted it by brush. He didn't use the primer, so paint soon peeled off. I repainted it in silver and applied new decal. Forward undercarriage leg was lost, so i used S&C method to make new one.
  9. If crack is not very big and parts of windscreen are not apart, you may try to dip it in the Future. It may help, i did it once and result was very good. Crack was seen only from one angle and was invisible from others. But changing cracked windscreen will be more effective remedy.
  10. expositor, 72modeler, i think so too. During Korean war even resque SB-17G were retrofitted with guns. So when my kit will arrive, i will order custom decal and build it OOB.
  11. Thank you, very interesting and useful thread. Strange, but i missed it then. So, i believe, externally PB4Y-1P were identical to standart PB4Y-1, so if i want to built photo bird i don't need to cut any additional windows. I'm going to build PP8 from VJ-61, that flew in French Indochina in support of french forces. It looks like this plane had full pack of guns - nose, upper and tail turrets and guns in side windows. But what about belly ball turret? Sad, but serails of these planes are unknown.
  12. May anybody help with info about number and locations of camera windows on PB4Y-1P, that flew in fifties?
  13. Thanks for your photos, they are great! I'm going to built 273 Sq MK.VIII and FR.14 and need any info about them. 273 Squadron is very obscure one, so i couldn't find much about it. All i know is that their VIII's surely were in DE/DG, some of their serials may be found here: http://www.airhistory.org.uk/spitfire/_prodn list.txt I also think that after their transferring to Armee de'l Air they retained their colors while delivered later XI's were in Ocean Gray/DG camouflage. About FR.14's. Most known one, of course, RN218/ MS-F. It looks like DE/DG. But at your photos of SM890/M
  14. According to Joe Baugher's database, 44-76330 was built as TC-47B, but there's no info about it's modification into SC-47. Also, first four Farm Gate aircraft, modified into SC-47, left Hurlburt for Bien Hoa on November 5, 1961, and arrived on November 16, so none of them could be shot on March 23. In Midland's book about Vietnam war losses we may find this info: During the increasingly tense situation in Laos in 1960 the USAF had detached a small number of aircraft from the 315th AD to monitor the Soviet airlift and locate airfields that were being constructed with Soviet and
