  1. All my modeling is done in a single car garage. After a few years just spraying in the open. I finally brought myself a portable spray booth. Once, I have finished, pull out the LED lights, and fold everything away, it is no wider than a toolbox so it is easy to store away. Brendon
  2. Well for this build I thought i would try giving Mr Metal colors a go to see how it looks. What can I say, sprays well straight from the bottle. I had set the pressure for my airbrush around 10-15 psi Lightly spraying the first coat kept the colour variation, but it didn't cover well so i allowed a 15-20 min gap and gave it another light coating . Here is the result after 2 coats, hardly any to no tonal variation left. Now to let it dry before buffing up various panels, then seal it so I can paint the exhaust and the gun fa
  3. Hi Paulo. Absolutely. Some F-4G's had carried over their Mig kills while they were F-4E's. As long as the aircraft you are modeling is a MiG killer.. You are good to go.
  4. Welcome back to the hobby.. and also to the GB... few interesting builds there.
  5. Well steaming right ahead... Managed to apply a coat of primer last night before going to bed. At least the weather has been more kind to me today... lovely 22C or 71.6F. Firstly I randomly chose panels to be coated with Tamiya semi gloss black. masking out of random panels Next came a coat of NATO Black. once dried other panels were masked out as well then flat white was sprayed over the other exposed panels and here is the result.... a Zebra.... Have a few touch up
  6. Thanks Ron, I have finished all the prep work for it, unfortunately it was 43 deg C here today, so no painting has been done. It has cooled down a bit now so I may get a shot of primer on it to confirm that this is all good for colour. Now weather it beats Phantom as the first build completed who knows
  7. Here is the latest on this build. I had added about nother 5 grams of lead sinkers into the nose of the kit just to make sure it wont be a tail sitter..(unfortunately accidently deleted the photo this morning ) . After gluing the upper and lower wings together.. attaching the fuselage left a gap forward and rear of the wing joins. here it is after the first filling and sanding Sill have another session to do to flare it all in. There was a slight gap in the upper wing join as well. bit a little application of perfect

  9. Well if the USAF museum has it credits this as a Triple MiG Killer, all good in my books as well!. Funny how even though there was gun camera video, that the Huntley/Stearman kill were never credited.
  10. My first build for this group is going to be Airfix 1/72 F-86F of then Major John Glenn. Whilst on a inter-service exchange position with the U.S.A.F's 25th FS in Korea , Glenn scored 3 Mig Kills He shot down his first MiG in a Dogfight on July 12, 1953, downed a second one on July 19, and a third on July 22 during an aerial engagement in which four other Sabres shot down three MiG's. Cockpit started and the exhaust done
