  1. How about adding the spine from the F-16I as space for luggage.
  2. Sweet. Thanks. Looks like I need to place an order with you for some strengthening plates.
  3. Thanks Dave. Does anyone know if the block 40 WAR hud in the kit? It's hard to tell from the sprue shots.
  4. Is it possible to build a Black 40 F-16C from any of the Gold series Kinetic kits?
  5. Every airbrush issue I have ever had has been caused by the airbrush not being clean. Pull it apart, clean every part of it then flush it with lacquer thinner.
  6. May be helpful, may not here is a photo of a (restored) RNZAF Hudson with the codes over the windows. https://fotoweb.airforcemuseum.co.nz/fotoweb/archives/5003-Search-the-Collection/Collection/MUS0401425.jpg.info#c=%2Ffotoweb%2Farchives%2F5003-Search-the-Collection%2F%3Fq%3Dhudson I have stood beside that aircraft several times and have never noticed the codes go over the windows.
  7. Tamiya F-35A or F-14. I had issues with the vertical stabilizers on the F-35 and found it hard to remove the seam there, but otherwise it's a feat of engineering. Tamiya F-4B doesn't count because it's the wrong variant!
  8. I have a Portrait 3, with the basic software, have had it for a few years now and still don't have the hang of it. There is a lot to learn, but when it goes right the results are fantastic. I have cut everything from Custom Markings for a 1/32 RNZAF corsair to the belly strap for a 1/48 F-4M and am pleased with the purchase. I am currently in the process of painting a 1/48 F-100D in Thunderbird colours. A ton of work but much better than decals. And also a 1/48 Airfix Avro Anson in RNZAF markings. There are only two things I dislike (and one is due to my fat fingers): 1
  9. Royal New Zealand Airforce A-4's and Australian Navy A-4's didn't have them.
  10. I second this. Gives a nice smooth finish which works well for black basing Mr Color with Levelling thinner is the way to go. The paint flows nicely and lays down smooth. I live in a cool coastal climate with high humidity and this is the best paint combo I have found.
  11. It's crazy to me that I saw the RAAF's first Wedgetail at an Airshow way back in 2005, but the USAF is only just procuring the airframe now.
  12. I haven't but I suspect that Rust-Oleum is lacquer based and you should be careful with it. In this coats it should be fine over acrylic, but apply it too thickly and it might ruin your paint as the lacquer will eat into it.
  13. I will use BRU-3A/As with snake eye bombs. During linebacker the F-111 Those wings look nice, however a little out of my budget. Thanks for your help.
  14. Thank you, that is exactly what I am looking for. Already ahead of you on the reskit after market. I have the cockpit set, ecm pylons, multiple ejector rack and snake eyes. Will order the correct ECM pod now you mention it. I built the Hobby Boss F-111C before the reskit replacement was available and the kit canopy bugs me every time I look at it. Once you see it, it ruins the look of the kit. The F-111C I built was A8-113 which I now plan to build as F-111A 67-0113 which served in Vietmam with the USAF before being sold to the RAAF.
