  1. Past hour
  2. 1/72 F9F-3 Panther

    Thanks, I started the metallic areas on the wing tip tanks. I made a 4 mm template from card stock, didn't work as I wanted so I transferred the hole to a piece of Tamiya tape . That did the job. The dash 3s had a smaller diameter metallic area around the tip tanks than the dash 2s and 5s, or at least so I have seen, I could be wrong. Wing leading edges next, they were also not as pronounced as the dash 2s and 5s.---John
  3. Today
  4. F9F-2B of VF-112

    Oops! Thanks for the info, Tommy. I'm less surprised at the seat colour than at the fact that they normally left the parachute and seat pack on those early Panthers. Shortly after I took the picture, I glued the seat in place and the fuselage halves together. So, I'll leave this one and use the info for my next Panther. I've bought a second Trumpeter Panther to build as the Yak-killer. No Yaks are to be harmed in this GB, but I find the these Panthers a fascinating pair: the first jet to take off from a carrier to shoot down another aircraft in combat (the Yak) and the first jet to take off from a carrier and shoot down another jet (the Mig-15). Cheers, Stefan.
  5. Spitfire PR XI

    Thanks, Els. Someday, I might build a Mosquito in PRU blue. Also with star and bar insignia, somehow I find that more attractive on PRU blue aircraft than a RAF roundel. Cheers, Stefan.
  6. I kind of got hosed on an ebay auction. I bought a Monogram Panther that came with the Eaglestrike Blue Angels decal sheet (or so I thought). No, they just included the instructions- no decals at all! Does someone have the sheet that they'd be willing to sell? Even just the Blue Angels option will work. I'm not picky. Ebay was a no go. I appreciate the help!
  7. 1/48 Apollo Spacecraft Stack

    A beauty for sure. I am continually amazed that the attitude thrusters weren't faired. It seems like the nozzles would get ripped off above Mach 3 or 4.
  8. Northern Lights

    Sprites are seen above thunderstorms and seem to be associated with lightning.
  9. Northern Lights

    do U2s ever see red flashes Esprits? Guess these phenomonens are more up high?
  10. Italeri 1/48th Scale CH-47D

    Ohhh you knew! When pax started turning white you knew it wouldn’t be much longer! On our pre-flight safety brief we’d direct them, if they felt they were getting sick, to remove their Kevlar, puke in it and take it with! Ahhh the memories,,,,,,,,,,
  11. Airfix 1/48 scale Hawker Hurricane Mk 1

    Now that is a bummer :( Any way to make it easier? Higher contrast maybe?

    Thanx Joel, you get me :D

  14. A-6E Intruder

    Janne, No matter. You've still done an incredible amount of corrections to make the conversion back to an A, look like an A. Joel
  15. Airfix 1/48 scale Hawker Hurricane Mk 1

    Janne Thanks so much my friend. It's greatly appreciated. All that's left is the two antenna wires that I truly struggle with. No depth of field with just one eye. Joel
  16. 1/48 E-2 Hawkeye

    Thanks guys, much appreciated. Did look at putting the wires on the kit but can never get them to look taught enough, so my thinking is leave them off rather than they look like washing lines😂
  17. Italeri 1/48th Scale CH-47D

    Like riding on a dang roller coaster when those guys do NOE flying. Kinda fun but never know when you're finally gonna puke lol. Great job swashplate, bet it takes a good amount of shelf space!
  18. Italeri 1/48th Scale CH-47D

    Very nice, Swashplate! I know I'm late to the party but I felt obligated to voice my approval for obvious reasons........
  19. LF has. 1/48 F-4E

    I've got one if you want to PM me.
  20. A-6E Intruder

    This is on me really for following tne instruction sheet to build an E.... there is an A-ish arrestor hook housing I just didn't use it :P How would I known I wanted an A in the end...and an early one at that. Goes to show that it is never too late to change your mind about anything :P Gee I'm stubborn
  21. CD72080 - 1/72 AV-8B Harrier II

    Looking forward to this, hopefully with the Wolf tail art.
  22. Airfix 1/48 scale Hawker Hurricane Mk 1

    Looking fantastic :D Gonna be a stunner :D
  23. 1/48 E-2 Hawkeye

    Just an outstanding build of a not so easy Kinetic kit. Love your choice of decals that only adds to the presence of your build. Joel
  24. 1/32 Mosquito Tamiya wip

    Amazing. Simply amazing. Your attention to these details is something one rarely sees. Joel
  25. A-6E Intruder

    Janne, Your fortitude in correcting all the issues that Kinetic just let slide for the sake of marketing one boxing to cover two variants has surpassed anything I would have, or could have done a long time ago. You would have thought that at the very least they would have molded an insert to make the correction that much easier. Joel
