  1. Thank you! Yes, it builds really well. I personally think Revell kits are really worth the money. I have previously build their F-86D. I used a led clay product from Uschi van der Rosten called Three Green. It conforms well into the small spaces around the intake.
  2. Thank you Nils, Tøffe Tom would not have been built if it was not for your excellent work. Keep it up
  3. The Vingtor decals are very thin and crisp, just the way I like them. They only need a few seconds in luke warm water so work with one at the time. I used only a tad of softener. Just keep in mind that there are a lot of ‘2’ and ‘3’ in some serials if you choose to build a plane from your own references. The KASL resin is very nice detailed and without bubbles. It is a bit tricky to keep the right shape on the plastic wing to get the perfect fit with the resin part. Nothing a little patience fixes though.
  4. Thank you for the comment and the attachment. Just love this site, so much knowledge. I will keep it in mind for the next build.
  5. Thnx! Actually it was new to me as well and it took a while to figure out how the inner tanks were attached to the wings.
  6. Ok, thank you for telling, love the knowledge around here. I just followed the instructions
  7. That is a very very nice build, just brilliant!
  8. Thnx! Yep, the Vingtor sheet 48-103. They are really good
  9. Hi folks, Here are a few pictures of my F-84-F40 Sabre from 338 Sqn, RNoAF Ørland, in 1963. I used the Revell Canadair Sabre Mk.6 kit and added some extras, including a Martin Baker seat (from Eduard's F-8 Crusader) I also used KASL Hobby's slats and flaps together with wheels from Eduard. The very nice and thin decals are from Norwegian Vingtor. She is painted with Alclad2 and Gunze, and weathered with Ammo of Mig products. It was just a pleasant build all the way Thank's for looking, I hope you liked it Cheers! //Fred
  10. Hi, Recently finished my RCAF Canadair Sabre from 427 Sqdn. I used the Academy F-86F-30 kit OOB except for the Aires seat and True Details wheels. The Leading Edge decals turns it into a Hard Wing F-86-30 style from Zweibrücken, Germany in 1957. The tail markings is from the Weapons Meet Cazaux, France. Unfortunately the decals had a tendency of silvering. Painted with Mr.Paint and weathered with Ammo of Mig products. Thanks for looking //Fred
  11. I use Aclad II primer (black in this case) and their enamel gloss black base. Primer is sanded/polished with fine mesh and so is the base. It depends, mostly I go free hand holding a post-it as mask. If using maskung tape i make sure it is not to tacky, often used two or three times alreday. I use quite a lot of paint, though spraying it thin but several layers. Try it over a shiny part and compare it with sprayed directly onto black or grey. Quite a different effect.
  12. Ok, here we go. New hardpoints made and added, old ones removed and some touch up painting done.
  13. Used Alclad II. First a black base, then Chrome (or Polished Aluminium depending on how clean the finished look should be) as the shiny base. I have learned that this is one way of getting depth and a ‘real’ metal look. First used it on a J35B Draken a few years back. Leave it to dry at least 24hrs, preferably longer, before altering panels (on this one with Polished, Airframe and Duraluminium). The ‘grey’ mid-section of the wings and the upper part of the fin is Dull Aluminium. Sprayed thin layers always on the upper range of recommended psi and with a 0,4 needle. Other colours are added on top of the aluminium. All covered with Light Sheen clear cote after weathering. To me the best for ‘glossy’ clean planes.
  14. Thank you for your kind words In deed the Revell and the Special Hobby Dog's look quite funny together. I am sorry to say, but being the second kit I've built from Special Hobby I cannot see myself buying another one. The soft plastic in combination with thick round (!) corners requires a lot of work with filler and sanding, and not necessarily the kind of work you want to put in. I prefer improving a kit rather that making the parts fit. Perhaps I am a bit cranky here, still I liked the challenge to prepare it for the NMF but there are simply to many great kits out there, kits that in the end turn out better results. Having that said I do like their efforts providing us with kits like the SAAB Viggen. Well, this one is finished now and there is a gap in the stash that needs filling so I have ordered the MustHave F-86K From what I have read it is Revell based and pretty good, It will be interesting to crack the box open when it arrives. When built it will be a kit in RNoAF livery this time.
