  1. Hi Fellow Britmodellers--- Here is a plane I just finished an hour ago... Took almost two weeks and its probably my best model thus far. This one is an Academy kit of the original Accurate Miniatures tooling. The Academy instructions were really hard to follow and missed steps! If you build one, head to scalemates and look up the old Accurate Miniatures instructions posted online. I had to several times to figure out how to build this!!! I added resin wheels, eduard PE seat belts, and the decals are techmod for the USS Essex TBM-3 Avenger. I detailed the bombs with printscale US weapons decals. One thing I had to fix was the kit did not have the tailwheel extended properly (or I goofed placement of a bulkhead, but not sure). I had to add a post to the top of the tail gear retract strut to get the tail gear rotated out enough as per photos of real Avengers. Looking at builds of this kit on line, everyone seems to have the partially extended tailwheel! So watch for that when you build yours... I painted in Gunsie Mr Color sea blue and intermediate blue and flat white. I also painted according to official TBM paint guide with the 'gradiated blue' on the Leading Edges of the Wing and Stab which is same as on fuselage sides. I found a photo of the real Georgia Peach flying and so weathered and detailed accordingly... This one came out nice! Thanks for watching and checking it out...
  2. Hello everyone, I have been a long time lurker on this forum but have decided to post my first finished kit since 2016. The kit is Academy's 1/48 F-4B/N "VMFA-531 Gray Ghosts". The Academy kits has great surface details but some construction choices seemed a little overly complex and lead to some fit issues, other than that the kit is great. The seats are resin (I don’t remember the brand, I've had them in my stash for years) with photo etch from Eduard. The model is painted with mainly Vallejo air paints and coated with Humbrol clear and then Tamyia matte spray. Im really happy how the kit turned out considering its been 3-4 years since my last kit and this one is substantially better, there is however still some room for improvement such as the paint coat I don’t think came out well because it was very coarse even after layers of clear, but overall I'm pretty happy how it came out. Any criticism or tips will be much appreciated, thanks y'all!
  3. Evening all Calling this one done, Acadamy 1/72 P39Q in Portuguese marking from June 1942. Used Eduard PE for cockpit and flaps, LF model decals, Tamiya and Revell acrylics. The LF model decals are very nice for the price. Reposted with pictures after the Photobucket shut off.
