  1. That 1/48 Skyhawk looks good. Is that the Hasegawa kit re-boxed by Italeri? EDIT: Never mind. Found the answer: http://www.hyperscale.com/2008/reviews/kits/italeri2671reviewbg_1.htm
  2. Yes, it's true. The HobbyBoss kit is undersized as I remember seeing pictures of a modeler who compared both the kits together. I really, really, really wish Revell would downsize their fantastic 1/48 Rafale M down to 1/72 scale. I've been wanting to build one ever since I saw this inspirational video: But I don't want Italeri (or Revell re-boxed) kit with the raised panel lines or HobbyBoss's undersized one. I'd rather have a new tool one.
  3. Woo Hoo!

    1/72 Trumpeter F-106B two seater!!

    I thought Meng were going to come up with a F-106B too. What happened?
  5. You could also ask the various modeling forums (especially "HS") if anyone has a trashed F-100 and if they could spare the windshield. Alternatively, you could make it into a mini-diorama with a "canvas sheet" to cover the windshield to make it look like the aircraft is undergoing maintenance. Some people use tissue paper soaked in white glue, drape it around the canopy, wait for it to dry and then airbrush/ drybrush/weather the "canvas sheet". Armor modelers do this all the time, I believe. Here is something similar but it was done with magic sculpt instead. https://www.scalespot.com/onthebench/f14vf31/image022.jpg

    1:72 Matchbox A-10A - NOT straight from the box!

    Great tips! Just out of curiosity, how long do you wait after applying super glue onto the panel lines before you start sanding and rescribing the panel lines? I tried it once and left the glue on for 2 days. It became rock hard and was impossible to either sand or rescribe
  7. You could always make what-ifs: https://southfront.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/1-258.jpg http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-mLWpAowBgDA/T9IMX2nYsOI/AAAAAAAAAcI/YGES54uw_64/s1600/2072852.jpg https://pre00.deviantart.net/0a5f/th/pre/f/2012/219/a/1/f_35a_jasdf_blue_cammo_2_by_agnott-d5a59mv.jpg https://orig00.deviantart.net/879c/f/2012/219/d/e/f_35a_jasdf_blue_cammo_1_by_agnott-d5a59f3.jpg

    Trumpeter new tool Avro Vulcan

    I'd rather support Airfix Purely for nostalgic reasons. Grew up with Airfix and Hasegawa kits and would rather buy from them. Still love those old Airfix boxarts by Roy Cross and Hasegawa's Shigeo Koike's mesmerising works. Airfix has improved tremendously when it comes to panel lines, cockpits, etc, and I'd love a 1/72 Vulcan from them.
  9. Wow! I thought the 1st picture was of the REAL aircraft. Great photography and awesome model

    Pro-Resin Hunter trainers in 1/72: views?

    The perfect opportunity for Airfix to jump in with one of their own. Or at least purchase the molds from Revell.
  11. Amazing techniques you are using!

    The Aoshima George is a hidden gem! You did a great job on it

    F-4C/D - Europe1 scheme

    Sorry for being off-topic: Regarding the above photo, I thought only the early Navy Phantoms ( Prototype F4H-1 & F-4Bs) had the movable inner most slats (ie closest to the air intakes). I thought I read somewhere the later models had the inner most slat welded shut? I noticed from online pics of the Zouki Mura F-4C & F-4D both kits have positionable inner most slats.
  14. I think you may have already seen this but just in case you haven't, here is an excellent article about backdating the Revell 1/72 F-105D into an early D. You might be able to use the tips for the Trumpeter kit too: https://modelingmadness.com/scott/viet/f105d.htm
