  1. I must say that is truly attractive paint scheme. I Like it!
  2. I'm glad you built this and took such close-up pictures. I have this kit in my stash and was contemplating using the kit decals on my Fujimi A-7A but was worried if the yellow decals might suffer from see-through effect. Judging by your build, the decals seem great
  3. Splendid attention to details. That cockpit and even the weathering on the drop tanks...WOW! How did you get the paint chipping effect in the cockpit? Thank you.
  4. It was a requirement for Vengeance aircrew to be Jedi Knights and use The Force to fly instead of their eyes: https://static0.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2020/07/Luke-Skywalker-and-Training-Droid-in-A-New-Hope.jpg
  5. I have this very kit and had no idea it could be built up so well. Thanks for the inspiration!
  6. Might this be of interest to you? https://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/jh7gbizuutcg7h8adl5a.html They do sell them individually too: https://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/fo9hgcnll5rvjgxz2yzv.html https://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/lmtavlk66cicxgt8r4d1.html https://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/ffgexdbzhxeqcwolirws.html https://www.hobbyeasy.com/en/data/grovrr9fvy4ghl5earzx.html Hannants from UK would usually get them in too.
  7. Nice shot of the weapons bay door as well as the aux flaps. Here's the full article from where the windshield pics came from: https://finescale.com/product-info/kit-reviews/2010/03/hobbyboss-f-111a-aardvark
  8. It's always a treat when someone with first hand knowledge builds a kit. Looking forward to seeing more. By the way, I'm curious about how you're going to address the "windshield /area just forward of windshield" issue but perhaps at a later time when you are ready. No hurry https://finescale.com/sitefiles/resources/image.aspx?item={6B408EDC-3ACD-4D48-BB5E-F59CC6FD3081} https://finescale.com/sitefiles/resources/image.aspx?item={6160774D-84B4-4865-B195-7DA507D20A6F}
  9. Looks like just the radial-engined ones as only those seem to be on 'Reserve': https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/search?typ1_c=102&cat=&target=Series&searchkey=1%2f72+IJA+%26+IJN+Aircraft I think the inline-engined Hiens are already available for order as can be seen in the above link
  10. Oh, I'll definitely follow this one. I've got the "Fast Back" version in my stash and will be taking notes: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10012689 Mark, not to worry, FM is re-leasing them in Nov and are taking pre-orders: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10019064 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10012689
