  1. Hi Paolo, Thanks for your input mate. Wow, car paint, is that the norm for these kind of paint schemes in the Italian Air Force? Will make life a lot easier with a Halfords just around the corner! Cheers, Glen Also, if it lasted several years, I can do a little weathering then?
  2. Hi guys, I'm building the Italeri 1/48 Tornado IDS in the special Black Panthers scheme. Check out the link: My link Looking over the decals and instructions, there are no stencil or other airframe markings provided or called out for other than the special markings? Where the stencilling markings painted over and or removed for this (temporary)scheme? Hopefully so, it'll save me a whole lotta decalling Cheers Glen
  3. Hi Janne, Thanks mate, not detailed an aircraft kit before, hoping to just give a more accurate representation and maybe try out a few new techiniques. Cheers, Glen
  4. Hi Malaquias, Am a big fan of tiger meet schemes too, Hope to do a Tornado tiger meet in the future, but wont be using this kit again :D Cheers, Glen
  5. Hi guys, Been away from building models way too long now. Been building no less than 3 full resin and or resin conversion 1/35 AFV kits the last few weeks (at the same time). Resin/AFV burnout. SO today I decided to jump into an aircraft project, with both feet. Thought this one would be a relatively straight forward build.....wrong :blink: Anyway got stuck in late this afternoon. Gonna enjoy this one, hoping to get her to paint asap, looking forward to that metal on black with panther scheme!!! Here's where I'm at, in a pictorial fashion This is the kit, looks great in the box, not so easy once you start dry-fitting parts. Wheel wells, big old ejection pin marks on the inside, Italeri didn't think this one through? Got one side cleaned up, grateful for that micro-chisel! Forward fuselage halves, that central console section is a work of fiction and totally oversized, wanted something more or less OOB but my 'conscience' got the better of me :wacko: After cutting out that central section I started on the rear console. Cutting out that big console left quite a gap, decided to try something interesting and flesh this area out with metal foil. Starting to come together, replaced the side displays so they looked a little more to scale and at that angle as opposed to straight on? Busying the area up with wiring, based on reference pictures, have exagerated the wiring (quantity/size) slightly for effect. Finishing off that uppermost section of the central console, will detail up this area a little more with some of the bumps and wires etc, and some mr surfacer to tie in some of the edges Rear fuselage halves, what a join, a lot of tidying up needed, musta dry-fitted this a dozen times? Thanks for looking guys, Glen

  10. Hi guys, Thanks very much for the input, much appreciated. Cheers, Glen
  11. Hi guys, Can any of the post war British jet fans tell me is it possible to convert the Revell 1/32 Sea Venom to the 2 seater Vampire (T.55) as used by the Irish Air Corps. I guess if possible a whole new cockpit and de-navalising is needed? Were these twin-tail family very similar, my searching makes it seem so? I have a Venom line drawing but cant find a Vampire one to confirm? Any help would be very much appreciated! Cheers, Glen
  12. Hi sv, That's fair enough mate, each to his own! The Kinetic F-15 eh, oooh your a fire starter :D Cheers :lol: Glen
  13. Hi Andre, http://www.dstorm.eu/pictures/nose-arts/f-...audi/1312_1.jpg That could very well be the Eaagle I'm looking for? 2 kills fits the story? Thanks very much for the links, great pics on there. Cheers Glen
  14. Hi guys, Have gleaned the following information from Wikipedia, I still have a number of questions: "Scripting and costuming place Stackhouse and Burnett in the squadron VFA-163 Ark Angels. The real VFA-163 squadron was decommissioned well before the Super Hornet was put into service. The Super Hornet, which did not enter service until 1999, was decorated with VFA-163's 1995 markings on the spine but was in fact on loan from VFA-122." Is this information accurate? What kits should I go with in 1/48 and 1/72 to portray the movie Hornet? Are there decals available that I could use? Any help much appreciated guys Glen
