All: Inspired by Adey M.'s beautiful Dominie T.1 in resplendent silver / orange finish, and after reading others' comments about what needed to be done, I set to work on my own example. Here are some of the changes I made to "update" it as a 55 Squadron aircraft: 1. Cut out two additional starboard side windows 2. Moved the main landing gear bays forward 5mm 3. Relocated the wing fences 10mm outboard 4. Inserted a plug in the nose 5. Detailed the cockpit, including curtain and crew figures from PJ Productions 6. Created engine intakes and exhausts from metal tubing and added compressor vane faces (from 1/144 707 kit) 7. Reshaped various bits, such as the tail cone, nose, etc. 8. Added doppler antenna 9. Re-shaped and detailed the main landing gear and nose gear. Since I've already finished the kit, I wanted to present an abbreviated version of the build. I airbrushed Vallejo gloss black primer base and metallics, and Tamiya Pure White from the rattle can. I was really disappointed with the Vallejo, which did not polish well and came off in strips, and ended up making fixes using gloss black Stynylrez, which is absolutely fool-proof. I then had more problems with the clear coat, Johnsons Clear, which began to crack--possibly because I airbrushed on too many coats without allowing adequate time in between to dry.
Hello Britmodellers, Have a break....now there is the break in England vs. Colombia! Built ca. 1971 two times, Army and Marines. Only one survived. Paintbrush of course at that time. Because the heli wanted to repel the decals i sprayed varnish over by spray can few months later. Yellow mellow....OH OH! England, England! May our/your Klopp be with you! Cheers, Tom
Hello Britmodellers! This is my oldy 1967er Hasegawa T-38A Talon, finished in 1999/2000, only one picture by me before this. Decals were altered originals and from Microscale. Pilot is borrowed from a Monogram F-15. It´s a German one in USA with a first solo flight, 60ties model and a hybrid between old Hase and the much better cockpit and spine section and other parts of an Italeri F-5F, wrong wingspan is greater now too, correct intakes are handmade. It can (without moving the front wheel) flip the rudder and make 5 mph while canopy open only by that (i loved Flipper and other dolphins so much), a little bit of a what if, mates! BTW the box: i was always and i am a non-smoker! Cheers, Thomas
