  1. Nice one. It looks a bit like it's showing its teeth! Alex
  2. Fully agree, nice kit, awful orange decals. Yours turned out very nicely, I like the weathering, just a bit to be noticed, but not overdone. Alex
  3. alex


    @Giorgio N stay strong, I have my family in Bergamo...
  4. Very nice, I also like the figures and equipment. Looks like the real thing! Alex
  5. Agree, most probably the ATFLIR. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AN/ASQ-228_ATFLIR Alex Edit: a funny kit, it even has an airbrake where the original hasn't got one...
  6. is it the final model yet or just a sample to show a Ju-88?
  7. Just watched the video: looks like they rised the prices. Up to 19€ for a 1/72 tank? Alex
  8. hm, could it be that an oil leak could be more easily detected on a white surface? And on the slats the white area wouldn't help, as the airstream goes backward? just a guess... Alex
  9. Thanks. Yeah, the IR jammers are a pain to paint, as the colour of it seems to change everytime you look at them. Ref. the front sensors - Many people paint the windows silver, but it's too bright. I'm thinking about cutting the shape of the window from a thin transparent plastic foil and painting the backside black before glueing. Alex
  10. Nice one, not really bad for a test run! How did you make the orange looking IR jammer just behind the main rotor? Alex
  11. Not too bad... and yes, the kit must be some 30 years old. Alex
  12. just noticed the thread now. I built the Trainer Gannet from Revell into a dark blue COD Gannet. it must be one of the most awful new Revell builds ever, I can't remember how much I sweared during the build. On of the kits which look nice on the first glance, but were terrible to make. Alex
  13. I have a question too about the colours of the Super Hornet, to be exactly about the vertical stabilizers. What colour are they, I've seen drawings where the outside is painted like the underside (as they are bent outwards, like on the instruction sheet of the Revell 1/72-F/A-18F), and on other drawings (like in the Hasegawa-instructions), they are the same colour as the topside. It seems that there some confusion about it, and I think that it can change from airframe to airframe, as studies of many photos show no clear pattern. Could it even be that when repainting them, the rules were not applied 100% correctly? Thanks for any hints! Alex
  14. Yes, if it's in a historical or educational content, it's legal to display them. Museums fall into this category. And a court once decided, that a model exhibition is neither. That's the reason that on pictures of the original it's still there, but may not be displayed on models. Alex
