  1. Hi Chris! Glad you are back in business. Looking forward to your soon and complete recovery to make a deep plunge into the resin deal. Take care. Alexander.
  2. You are welcome, Youngtiger1. I'm always open and up to sharing my methods and "secrets" with other fellow modelers. Cheers! Alexander
  3. 1/35 or nothing! 🙂
  4. Bombshell Phantom! Absolutely amazing! You are not only a Master Modeler but also a Great Artist that you show a top notch skill of panting and weathering. As for the cockpit, it looks like a downscaled real thing. Bravo! Cheers and happy modeling! Alexander
  5. Thank you Thadeus. I hope I'll be keeping well until the day to place the beast on the shelf. 🙂
  6. Well, it actually is not too hard to achieve. 🙂 First, you have to arrange riveting lines with a pencil on their right places. If you want all the rivets to be at the equal voids you'd better use a thin and narrow rule like those you may find in some Scribing Template sets and put it on the place and fix with masking tape. Then you take the "riveting tool" with your right hand, or left one, if you are a left-handed guy and make rivets. You should keep the tool perpendicular to the surface and push it down with rotating movement. But first you should try it on some bit of plastic to reach
  7. I actually am not to alter whole shape of the nose thought the frames are not correct. I'm just to correct only the side view of nose. 🙂
  8. 🙂 Oh yes, there were very few of them there so I had time to grab one. BTW, the tool is very handy at making nice raised riveting lines like on the image below. Cheers! Alexander
  9. Thank you Steve for keeping your keen eye on my build. 🙂 And now the ultimate stage of the gun improvement. The gun muzzle is from the Cutting Edge. The last image shows my riveting tool.
  10. Hi Youngtiger 1, Thank you for your nice comment. Sorry to hear, though, on the cabinet. Sometimes s..t happens. 🙂 Well, now some improvements concerning the nose gun. I think it's of no good the gun is embedded in the fuselage so I managed to alter the in question area. First I cut the gun halves off the fuselage and filed the opening. Then I used piece of plastic to make "sole" of the gun covering and filed it to give it right shape. I used plastic glue to soften the back side of the sole to be more flexible and then bent it to fit the opening. Then I used just a
  11. Hi Karl, Nice to hear from you. How's it going? I hope you are well. I had but some time ago I sold it along with some aftermarket stuff. Two years ago I wanted to get rid of the kit and advertised it for sale but there was no interest except the aftermarket stuff the kit was stuffed in plenty. 🙂 Then the kit was collecting dust and no one showed any interest on it. So after a while I decided to put my own hands on it. But Jake's Guide was off. If you by chance have some images concerning the in-question area I would much appreciate your sharing them with me. Cheers
  12. Thank you Steve. Well, another step. I managed the wings to be removable. This is how I did it. Plastic tube is just to illustrate what it's all about. 🙂 The tube will definitely be of more stronger material.
  13. Thank you guys for the interest. Now I'm stuck due to lack of the nacelles images. I would much appreciate if anyone share with me some hi res images of the nacelles from above that all panel and riveting lines are clearly visible. Cheers! Alexander
  14. Thank you for encouraging me 11bee!
