  1. All: I thought it best to illustrate what I've been discussing elsewhere by use of illustration. As engineered, the original AMT/ERTL KC/EC/RC-135 kit has a dihedral problem--too little of it, to be precise. The way you can tell is by looking at the built model in profile and realizing that the outboard engine should be a good deal higher off the ground than it is, and that the wing tips should come up to the level of the cockpit, even when the plane is sitting on the ground. To correct this will require some patience and risk-taking. Good: the kit has soft plastic, which mean
  2. Here's a project that stalled for a long time. In places it's been a pig of a kit, with parts that don't seem to want to fit together. On the other hand it's got lots of cool parts, there were enough engine bits to build a complete 426 Hemi (which is in a safe place somewhere and one day I'll find it) but I decided to go with a 440 6-barrel engine. Unfortunately the options didn't extend to the transmission, I'd rather have an automatic but the parts were only for a 4-speed. Anyway, despite my moans I'm please with how it turned out although it feels a bit strange not having anything left
  3. I don't know if there is a record for the longest time taken to complete a kit, but this has taken me over ten years to get to the stage you see here. The late 1960s Chrysler Corporation "B-Body", mid-size cars are some of my favourite cars; I have various models of this family of vehicles. Off the top of my head there were the Dodge Coronet and Super Bee; Plymouth Belvedere, Satellite, Road Runner and GTX. Plymouth billed the GTX as the gentleman's muscle car, with luxury trim as well as powerful engines. I think I picked up this kit through ebay; I always wanted to
  4. Hi comrades! Here is my take on AMT kit. Despite the kit's age, it was a pleasant build. Aftermarket used: Foxbot decals (excellent!) Eduard brass (intermediate, not everything helpful) True detail resin wheels and rescue inflatable boat - (nice) Montex masks for canopy and standard markings (excellent) Quickboost engines, cowlings and browning's - (good, but engines were additionally wired ) Scratchbuilt: engines wiring, wheel wells wiring, wings navigation lights, tail light enhanced. Thanks for looking The b
  5. Hi all, I'm also in with the AMT/ERTL 1/48 Douglas A-20G Havoc as an aircraft named 'Joker' of the 410th Bomb Group/647th Bomber Squadron. I'll be doing the aircraft specific decals as home prints, the artwork for which is already underway. A fairly simple kit, but the plastic seems a little soft and the fuselage halves in particular are very bendy and will need to be treated carefully with the possible inclusion of some internal sections to avoid any twisting or distortion later in the build. The kit cockpit isn't too bad but I spot
  6. Hi everyone. I hope you've all had a great Christmas. I've started a new model over the last few weeks; an AMT/ERTL A-Wing. It's quite a basic kit out of the box, and i'm planning to do very little in the way of customisation. Having said that, the two parts I like the least are the raised panel lines, and the terrible pilot. I've never tried scribing panel lines before, but I'm giving it a go on this one. In several places I've slipped and messed up, so had to fill I'm a few bits and pieces, but even though it's a bit clumsy in places, it still looks bet
  7. Kit - 1:25 AMT/Ertl Paint - Body & chassis, Tamiya acrylic. Engine & details, Tamiya, Humbrol & Xtracolour enamels. Decals - Kit. Extras - None This was started in November 2012 and sent to the 'Shelf of Forgetfulness' when I scr*w*d-up the soft edge demarcation between the red/yellow and white on the nose, and it stayed there until three weeks ago after a chat about car modelling in general and NASCAR modelling in particular between a few of us on another (US based) site. Well here it is three weeks after that exchange and I'm quite pleased with the result. Make n
  8. I will be building a 1/48 AMT/ERTL F-7F 3N Tigercat. Pictures will follow later. Cheers,
