  1. They are working again, sort of. If you click on them you can see them, however they used to show up as an embedded image, not a link to the image.
  2. I realize that now. Thanks for letting me know. I have been using Scalemates to post my pictures to and then hotlink them but that appears to no longer work. All my other posts now do the same thing. I'll have to use another option.
  3. This is a Sword 1/72 Lightning finished as an F.3. As always, there are things I wish I had done better but I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. https://www.scalemates.com/albums/img/5/9/5/1350595-87535-31-1440.jpg https://www.scalemates.com/albums/img/5/9/6/1350596-87535-11-1440.jpg
  4. Very nicely done!!!! This is one of my favorite Airfix kits. For its time, it is a well detailed kit and goes together well and looks good when it's done. I've been contemplating pulling mine out of the stash and building it. You may have pushed me over the edge of indecision with yours.
  5. I've finished the decaling. Next up, some touch up painting, a gloss coat, a bit of selective weathering and then the finishing touches.
  6. I took a bit of a break from modeling, but I'm back at it. I've finished painting and done some weathering. Now I'm decaling.
  7. That is simply beautiful!!! What a wonderful finish! Great job all the way around on this beauty!
  8. Beautiful job on a beautiful plane!!! Very nicely done!
  9. Very nice job on what I have always thought is a very elegant looking aircraft!!!!
  10. I'm adding the gear at this time. I was using the plastic parts for the oleos, but one of them pinged off into oblivion so I replaced it with one of the photoetch oleos. I'm debating if I will now replace the plastic with the other PE part. As for the nose gear, I'm not a fan of how Sword engineered the nose gear assembly. At 1/72 scale the parts are awfully small and have very little surface area to establish a decent glue bond. I'm afraid the wheel won't be able support the weight of the plane.
  11. What a beautiful job!!! That is a beautiful finish. Well done!!!
