  1. Interseting article on the Aviationist website today: http://bit.ly/1QXUYRh
  2. Hello all, I'd like to present a bit of a 'side' project for the next month or so. Any 'Top Gun' fans out there may have an idea of what the title means, but to wet your appetite: Dogfight I plan to make a scene similar to the video above with a mighty F-14 chasing down a diminutive A-4. The kits: VF-124 decals for the F-14: References: I don't have any references for the A-4 bar the internet. Both will be mainly OOB except for the addition of the decals and a Master brass pitot tube for the F-14. I'll load both of them with ACMI pods from Hasegawa weapons set D. I have a wooden base and I plan to drill holes for brass tube to display both the jets at 'dogfighting angles' Dave
  3. (Started Sunday) I bought this kit because of this post, http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234965363-hawker-typhoon-1b-airfix-172/ From the box, any info appreciated. It's Humbrol Matt varnish day on the harrier tomorrow so little else can be done. It will be 21:15 on the 24th August as I open this bag, this will be a quick build. It is the new tool Airfix 1/72 Fw190 a8 as found in the dogfight doubles box I got a few days ago. It will be the test bed for the new (to me) alclad gloss. This is bank holiday Mondays work. Cockpit details, painted with Tamiya XF-24 Dark grey, very thin black wash, dry brush with games workshop fortress grey & mithril silver. Looks excellent from the box, the only thing I did different from the instructions, fix gunsight to coaming instead of console. Grey on control column is Airfix acrylic 64 (light grey) this colour was supplied in the box, it is the dogfight double box which has some paints, 2 brushes and a small tube of glue included. This makes the kit work out very cheap, it's even better if you grab it on offer as I did. Steaming technique. The lower wing is VERY distorted, It looks more like an x-wing! The tips need straightening from the leg end of the undercarriage opening and also a slight bend at the nose and a more significant bend at the tail end of the piece. I used a regular kettle and made some coffee at the same time, it took a few goes to get things lined up enough that tape/pegs/glue will hold things in place without distorting the upper wing half or freeing itself from the rear fuselage joint. The jig is the kitchen worktop with a chopping board between 2 pegs, the nose is resting on the worktop jointing strip which happened to be about right for the job. The butcher bird is indeed living up to its name, not only did I need to butcher the wing to get a fit I also decided to attempt a fillet o' finger when removing said wing from the sprue! TAKE CARE WHEN USING SHARP IMPLEMENTS.
