  1. Hi all, Wondering if anyone has had any experience or insight using Black Dog resin detail sets? I've seen them advertised all over the interweb, but don't think I've seen any "in progress" or "finished" builds incorporating them. I'm particularly interested in the F-16 sets in 1/48. MTIA Scott
  2. I've never heard of anyone succumbing to our hobby? The warnings on paints/thinners and putties etc .... are there as we have now become a nanny World where common sense no longer seems the norm and law suits ready to fly around everywhere. Obviously don't go drinking or eating the stuff and the only advice I would give is, when using an airbrush then basic ventilation(open a window) wouldn't go amiss. I build in 1/48 and maybe build two kits a year so the amount of paint that I actually spray onto my kits doesn't in my opinion warrant a mask or spray booth, but I can see the benefits if you have a dedicated workshop and churning out model after model of installing one. I use an airbrush with enamel paints/thinners, spray in the kitchen when everyone is out and no food being prep'd with the window open. Sometimes I wear shorts or jeans and always with a t-shirt, never in my underpants or naked as that would just be straight down freaky or perverted.
  3. For someone that’s new to the hobby, that’s some seriously impressive work.👍🏻
  4. At least on the AMK thread they finally have the product to cast doubt upon.
  5. This saga has been ongoing since 2008, when he first announced the Egyptian and a Hellenic RF sheet....................... however other options are out there.
  6. Trailing edge and rear stabs can be found either up or down, depending on where the pilot left the stick. I think they remain in that position due to it being fly by wire and won't bleed off and droop over time? note that the leading edge flaps are just slightly raised above the fuselage LERX
  7. What scheme are you planning on doing? I personally like the 222ATS 115CW Orange scheme.
  8. I’ll get some photos up later today showing flaps/stab positions, but basically they can be either up or down.
  9. Yellow, the shot with the Grey “RESCUE” arrow still had the snakes eye to be applied so obviously taken during application.

  11. Here’s a potential subject, that Caracal could do justice. https://theaviationist.com/2020/05/08/heres-venom-the-new-special-painted-jet-of-the-f-16-viper-demo-team/
  12. The forward vent should be part A3, and is shown in step 24 or 27 depending on what kit you have.
  13. 87-290 definitely has RAM panels fitted for this period. As for wing strengthening plates, I would’ve imagined that both wing and fuselage were done at the same time(someone else will know for sure). Infact I’ve looked again and wing plates are fitted, you can just make out the round part at the rear of the plate, although they’re not as protrusive as the fuselage plates.
  14. The rope is attached to a frame within the cabin that is fixed to the roof, is there another system other than FRIES? https://www.skycoreaviation.com/mission-equipment/fast-rope-insertion-extraction-system-fries/
