  1. Hi, Where there any regulations concerning walkways on Skyray's? It seems that sometimes where they painted in light seagull and later on in darker shades of grey. And sometimes lined in black, ewen red and on some aircraft not lined at all. Usually those walkways are made as decals as well. But it look's strange sometimes depending on decal quality. Cheers / André
  2. Hello! Here's another one of my model. Assembly was simple and without any problems. There were some improvements. 1 Added to the resin cockpit from CMK 2 On the glazing scratched antenna. 3 Added resin missiles. 4 Modified landing gear I used MR color paints. Weathering- oil dots pigments and washes.
  3. Hi, here's the latest completion, the excellent Tamiya "Ford". Pretty voiceless kit, any issues were all of my own making (I lost the nose wheel door for instance!) Mr Hobby H325 for the grey and Tamiya XF-2 for the white Aeromaster decals Mig Ammo panel line wash Vallejo semi matt varnish Feel free to rip it apart - I can take it honest! Oh, sorry for the big pics, I know nothing about how to post etc!
  4. Hi, here's my current wip (for a GB on Flory Models). Somehow I have managed to delete my in progress pics for the hosting site, sorry! Anyway it's the excellent Tamiya kit with Aeromaster decals. For some reason the image appears rather large on my preview, if it's too large can somebody help resize please?
  5. New to me (but from 2010!), New Ware Space Kits Series (http://mek.kosmo.cz/newware/) proposes a 1/48th Douglas F4D Skyray (Tamiya kit - ref.61055) with NOTS 1958 US Satellite Launch Vehicle - ref.NW013 Source: http://www.aviationmegastore.com/skyray-with-nots-1958-us-sattelite-launch-vehicle--tamiya-nw013-new-ware-space-kits-series-nw013-model-conversion/product/?shopid=LH355008e014dba38dcc7f1b6102&action=prodinfo&parent_id=212&art=128822 V.P.
  6. Gentlemen, Having a really soft spot for the naval aviaition of the 1950s and 60s, adding a "Ford" to my collection was a mere formality. Since I was a kid, recularly spending some of my pocket money for Buck Danny comics, the shape of the F4D has been quite familiar to me - back then the delta-winged F4D looked so cool. TAMIYA's quarterscale F4D had been around for some years, when I eventually had the opportunity to tackle one of these kits. Douglas F4D-1, VF-213 "Blacklions", USS Lexington 1957 In order to further improve an already great kit, I added a CMK cockpit set and Eduard PEs. The kit's decals were replaced by an AeroMaster sheet - AeroMaster #48-542, "F4D-1 Skyrays Part 2" The paintjob was accomplished using Gunze Mr.HOBBY colour acrylics, applying only restrained post-shadings and subtle weathering effects. The AIM-9B Sidewinders were taken from a Hasegawa weapons set. Cheers, Erik
  7. Ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to present my newest model. It's the good old tamiya Skyray. It was generally fun to build, fitting and detailing is very good, but the decals are not. They are rather thick, and didn't react with the softeners I work with (micro sol). The building was OOB, I haven't even added the seat belts. Colours are Modelmaster enamel, Light Gull Grey and white, after a preshade. I kept weathering to a absolute minimum (actually just some washing), as the aircrafts looked always very clean. My daughter wanted the aircraft to fly, so she drew a nice cloudy landscape. Isn't she sweet? Thanks for watching! Alex
