  1. Hi Ian, I built this boxing earlier this year: Suffice to say the resin cockpit can be used however you have to raise the floor quite a bit to avoid fouling the gear bays. I shortened the sidewalls and made a new floor from plasticard, painted it black and placed the floorboards over it. Looks fine from the outside, especially as the cockpit opening is so small. I bought the Alleycat resin tail but elected not to use it as I don’t think it looks right. Using the plans from the Valiant Wings book I did a cut and shut job using plasticard. I also thinned the vertical tail as this area is way too thick on the old mould Tempest. Hope this helps! Chris
  2. Beautiful! Just bought this decal sheet, hope I can do half as good a job as you have! Chris
  3. Amazing! Getting from the Otaki kit to there shows supreme skills!!! Very well done!!!! Chris
  4. Wonderful Hellcat!!! The engine is superb! How did you go about doing the early style gun barrel fairings? Chris
  5. Very nice! I want to build this jet in 1/48, hope that somebody releases the decals soon! Chris
  6. Utterly superb! Paintwork and weathering are first class! Well done! Chris
  7. Glad you persevered, the end result was well worth it! A lovely little model! Chris
  8. Something you don’t see every day! Beautifully built model and a very attractive colour scheme! Chris
  9. I like it! Very tidy looking 109! Chris
  10. Well sadly this one is done-for folks. I managed to spill some thinners onto the wing which promptly turned the whole thing into a gloopy mess. I managed to salvage some of the detail parts for future use but I’m afraid the rest was beyond saving! Chris
  11. Paint is done and gloss coat is drying. Next up, decals! I’m sure that sharkmouth is going to be fun... Chris
  12. Hi Paul, thanks for the info! It looks to me like the real aircraft is painted in the firewall scheme so I’ll go with that. Here’s how things stand right now, primer is on and just a few seams to fix. Then it’s on with the camo! Chris
