  1. That is one fantastic Grumman. Kudos to you.
  2. I punched discs from self adhesive iridescent films and over painted with Tamiya clear blue and orange.
  3. Hi Folks This is my recently completed 1/48 Kinetic Hornet. It represents A21-7 as she was circa 2006 with 77 Squadron and finally gave me a chance to use my Afterburner Decals Hornet sheet. I added some extra goodies into this project. Resin Seat, Resin wheels (Nose-AMS resin , Main - Attack Squadron), Resin burner cans (Attack Squadron). AIM-132 ASRAAM from Airfix spares, Litening Pod from Tamiya spares and scratch modified TACTS pod. Eduard etch set in the cockpit abd some epoxy putty intake FOD bungs. Paints used were MRP and SMS Lacquers. Happily for me this model was awarded First place (1/48 Aircraft - Jet - Modified) and also Best Kinetic Model at Australian Model Expo 2019. I hope you like her. Cheers Andrew P.
  4. Sorry but I’m in the same boat as you. I could not find a pic showing any more than the front seats through a door. The kit provides 2x2 rows of seats with a radio rack in the back. No info on the ammo storage at all and no parts in the kit. I had to fabricate a cabin roof to support the upper wing piece anyway, so I put a couple of boxes up there as a guess. The kit has two windows above the cabin which need to be filled in and painted over as the lynx had a solid roof. This whole area of the kit is weak. As it ended up the clear parts are so distorted that you can barely make out any details in there anyway.
  5. Hello Folks Haven't had much bench time in the last few months but I just managed to get this one done. It is the truly horrible Roden issue of the Skymaster with extra parts to represent an aircraft operated by No. 4 Sqn Rhodesian Air Force during the Bush War. After embargoes were imposed on the regime at the time by the major powers, Rhodesia turned to French company REIMS who modified civilian Cessna 337 Skymasters. The added weapons capabilities in the form of 2 x 303 Browning machine guns mounted above the cabin and strengthened underwing hardpoints gave the Lynx a formidable close air support capacity in a stable and east to operate platform. The aircraft carried no national markings. The kit is pretty average all round but the worst parts are the clear parts and the decals. Despite a lot of polishing and buffing the windows are barely see through and the decals were rubbish. I used aftermarket brass landing gear legs I got from Ebay to help cope with the metric ton of lead in the nose and some Master metal 303 barrels improved the look of the gun pods. The landing lights under the nose are MV lenses. Here's some pics.
  6. I've got an F3 on the go and there are some real issues in this area. I was planning an in flight build but the seams down those narrow intakes changed my mind. Very little working room. Of course this being my first revell tornado I'm following the instructions. Steve's option above may help somewhat.
  7. I'm another that switched to Smugmug and so far very happy. Much more pro looking interface and as a photographer and a modeller its somewhere i'm happy to point people to.
