  1. Latest off the build machine Fujimis 1/48 T-38A or more precisely Fujimis F-5A in t-38 Clothing.. Not the most accurate out there, but I got this years ago when there wasn't anything else available. I want to do this as a simple slap and dash to prove to myself that I could still build a model and not take a year to complete. Wasn't going to be anything spectacular, just straight from the box as had been created by the modelling gods. Well that didn't last long, I start to look at the cockpit anddd... there no front office. just two barcoloungers of dubious quality. SO I added a couple of Quickboost seats, made some side consoles out of plasticard and instrument panels out of some scrap resin pieces. I did add some extra bits to fill out the empty spaces left over in the office. I wanted to go with the older international orange High Vis scheme because I wanted to have this done when I finished the Great white Beast so it would have a proper chase plane but wasn't to happen. I did use the stock decals. originally they were yellowed pretty heavily but I stuck them in a UV lamp oven to bake for an hour as an experiment to see if it was faster than taping to the window for a few weeks. gratefully it only took a hour to bleach them out enough to be usable. probably could have stood another hour but I'll remember that for the future. They did curl a bit at first but after a day flattened out. I gave them a couple of coats of lacquer just in case. There was a date stamped on the back Jan 1984! SO this model had been around for a day or two. The biggest blunder I had trough it all was at the very end In attaching the canopy to the fuselage the canopy cracked in a few places, not much I could do to fix. At a later date I may try to make a master of it and Vacuform a new one, we'll see. Not much on the underneath except the glaring sight saying "This is an F-5 you FOOL!" So there you have it, not quite a silk purse, but neither is it a sows ear. It was an enjoyable brief interlude. I now return you back to your regularly scheduled program" Celebrity Death Match.

  2. Hi All, Here is my take on the 1/24 Fujimi Ford GT40 Le Mans winner 1969, a nice kit apart from the rubbish see through decals which were replaced with a set from Hobby Link Japan along with a small etched set. If you are building this kit I would recommend fitting and fairing in the front lights first as the clear covers do not fit too well other than that the build went smoothly. I have used Humbrol acrylics 47 and 18 for the body with several coats of Alclad Aqua Gloss over the top cut back between coats with Micro Mesh, One of my favourite cars in the best colour scheme and there is another kit (1968) in the stash! Yours, MODeller
