  1. Thanks man, I do have but it's been a long time since I been around here and it seems i am limited to about 104Megs for photos.
  2. This is the Academy 1/48 T-50 kit of the Korean Black Eagles display team. I wasn't keen on the garish display team scheme so I opted to try and make the aircraft into the TF 2 tone Fighter trainer version. There are no decals currently for this aircraft so I opted to use the hi viz kit decals, so in essence, this is a what if. I was happy with the result and look forward to a proper release of the TF. It was a pleasure to build with no negative issues at all. In the kit were some of the parts for the TF so I believe it's immanent.
  3. Good day Folks, can anybody please help with detailed images of the rotor folding mechanism used on said Helo?
  4. As always thanks for commenting guys, second one done and my first of 2016, two to go........
  5. Merry Christmas to all you guys, hope you were all busy either building or ogling new plastic. Finished the first of the 4 Jugs, this was number 3 in the program.
  6. Thanks again guys for kind words. Well It looks like I'll not have enough time to finish all four by this week end so I am going to have to push through with 3. Just need to weather them up a bit and add all the final bits, should just make it by Friday.
  7. Number 2 http://s173.photobucket.com/user/jug-junkie/media/Aircraft/ACADEMY%20P%2047N%204%20x%20MULTI%20BUILD/0302_zps6i2amtqa.jpg.html So this is 1 and 2 together at this point. Number 3 ....and that is the story so far.....I have two weeks left to finish this for our annual MOY!
  8. Next up the engines. The P47 shows a lot of cleavage up front and the Academy kit engine is OK but rather sparse in detail so I decided to at least add some plumbing. The first step was to drill holes....many holes, actually a shoot load of holes 137 per engine to be exact!!! ....and added some copper wire. .....and some paint especially to tone down the copper leads. Up to this point I had not really thought too much about schemes as such so I started looking around and it appears that the N is not a favourite of the AM crowd at all. I had already sort of decided on two schemes - bot
  9. Seven years ago i looked at my stash and noted that I had.....a lot of Jugs, there was M's, N's, D's and razorbacks and bubble top's aplenty. I especially noted a horde of Academy N's and I had a thought about it and it occurred to me that if I built them one at a time as usual, I would probably complete one or two over the next few years and then other interests would most likely doom the rest to the stash until the day I died. So I decided to build them all in one go, that way they would likely see the light of day before my toes turned up. So I duly unpacked my four Jugs and away I went. I
  10. That could be a long wait yet Sabastian, if you can grab a Kopro/KP/Smer kit then grab it. They are very good even with age. Panel lines are recessed albeit a bit soft and shallow but easily fixed. I am busy with the Su25K and with only a Quickboost seat extra, it's building into a great model.
  11. Thank you all for taking the time to answer my query it is appreciated. I am taking Grey Ghost 531's route in that I am Building an Italeri J (Academy kit is too rich for me) and I know that the wing issue is really just too much effort to correct so I am adding the Donkey dick, the correct burner cans and wheels and I shall research the antenna's and make them right. You guys all mentioned a big difference in the rear cockpit, my question is, are these differences noticeable and are they interior or exterior differences?
  12. I have no doubt that if I scroll through the last 2 years of posts I will find this info but to save time, I'll just ask again - What are the visual differences between the two? Thanks
  13. Thanks for kind words all, Joel no sealer used, I have found the Artists oil pastels I use stick very well to almost anything.
