                           hi ALL ,

 

                                          at the other end of the Scale I'm buildin' the PLATZ 1/144 Delta Dart

 

                             For 1/144 scale it is top notch... except the Intakes are a N.Q.R.

                             The mouldingS are so fine that I warped the Fin and Wingtips somehow...... no heat anywhere.

 

                             I'm buildin' their AV8A Harrier too great kit..... but a but of panel alignment around the Wing jointis needed

                               and the Outrigger Legs ? ...... well they just break orff   hhhhhhrrrr !

 

                                                                                                                          cheery "modellin' " mumbas !

 

                                                                                                                                          Geoff

                                                                                                                                          F.T.G.3156

Nicely done.   I used to watch these at Fresno Air Terminal while I was flying charters into there.  An all day air show with formation

takeoffs and landings.  I don't know who the photographer was but this captures the scene very well.

Very very impressive, any problems with the Aires cockpit?, they are  usually a struggle to go into the body.🤩

Surprisingly not. Of course I had to reduce the thickness of the side walls, but then it fits perfectly. Lucky me🙃

 

Thank you for your comments!

Outstanding work, congratulations! I can imagine the size of Dart in the 1/48th scale... I have a Meng kit in the gentleman scale, and it’s looks very large even in 72nd.

 

Cheers! 😎

Outstanding work!

As for the black radom and anti-glare: What colors / varnish did you use here?

 

Cheers

Cheers for the info, I have the A and B models to build, just hope they come near your standard. Just have to make the decision on markings, so many nice ones out there.😋
