  1. Most impressive work, love the paint finish. B-2 next?!
  2. Nice builds TPS. thanks for sharing. If you also look behind the wing pivot on the Matchbox kit, the sweep area is more square (like the prototype) than the Airfix version.
  3. Right so, after some more thinking today, I'm going to with a D-model (Revell) but backdate it to the prototype. It's better plastic with engraved detail so should look much better (hopefully) than the Hobby Craft one. Changes I can see are: - Change gun fairing - Taller fuselage strakes - New fuselage profile behind wing sweep - New boat-tail - remove ECM bumps - new engine nozzles/exhausts - A-model cockpit I've been inspired by @Jabba 's build of an early prototype using the Matchbox kit and I'm going for the best-viewed-from-6-feet approach here. And all being well, I'll aim to finish it by 21 December which was the date of the first flight. Onwards and upwards! Cheers, Dermot
  4. I never knew that, nice one thanks! I'll try my best at bodging a replacement tail, see how I go. Cheers, Dermot
  5. You're not wrong there! I might be re-thinking my plans about a source kit.... I think the Matchbox kit and maybe the Airfix kit have the beaver tail? So I'll need to modify that along with other bits. You sound spot on about the wings - any video I've seen only shows the wings sweeping on the second prototype, dubbed '1X'. Cheers, Der
  6. Thanks everyone. So masked up the underside in preparation for spraying the u/c bays. Italeri_172_F-5F_Wip_5 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr When I looked at the fuselage sides, I wasn't happy how the seams were still showing. So out with the wet & dry to take care of them. Italeri_172_F-5F_Wip_6 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Will repeat with black primer and then Light grey in those areas (both sides). One step forward, two steps back! More soon. Cheers, Dermot
  7. Thanks everyone and better get a move on to be finished in time. Coat of primer...maybe I'll go the Top Gun route instead?! Italeri_172_F-5F_Wip_3 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Nah..Sundowners it is. First pass with Grey which is Mr Hobby 311. Italeri_172_F-5F_Wip_4 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr More soon. Cheers, Dermot
  8. Thanks Col. Since there's going to be some scratchbuilding, have decided to use this D-model and backdate it accordingly - I think it's a re-pop of the early Hasegawa F-14A. Might add some better seats from the spares, maybe a small resribe. Cheers! Der
  9. Thanks all, As mentioned by Ray, the sponsons need some attention. Revell_HH-3E_Wip_7 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Some strip glued a little at a time around the lower edge to lift it.. Revell_HH-3E_Wip_6 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Happier with that.. Revell_HH-3E_Wip_8 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Then replaced the sides of the sponsons as the kit ones have the stubs for the drop tanks moulded in. Revell_HH-3E_Wip_9 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr After some sanding and profiling, happy enough with that. Revell_HH-3E_Wip_10 by Dermot Moriarty, on Flickr Hope to button it up this weekend. Thanks for looking! Cheers, Dermot
  10. Hi all and looking forward to this one! I'm in with the first F-14A Tomcat in 1/72...specifically this one. Kit will be modified as necessary to backdate it to a prototype, with decals from the good people at Caracal Models CD72106 - F-14 "Tomcat" - The Early YearsCaracal. Photos to follow soon, good luck with your builds and happy modelling. All the best, Dermot
  11. Great idea to have an inspiration gallery. Some previous special schemes & prototypes from me, all 1/72.

  12. Hi all and this is my latest finish for the 'Century Series' GB here on the site. The short build thread is here but to recap: Kit: Trumpeter#01605 North American F-107A Ultra Sabre Build: OOB Paints: Tamiya acrylics; Klear; Oil pin wash. Extras: Some extra stencils from spares Notes: Canopy fit needed some surgery; the intake doesn't fit quite right; some detail inaccuracies; very few decals (all the red is painted!). But very happy how it turned out and great to build something different.
