  1. Thanks for the info Don. It's a proof that not always the primers recommended by the manufacturers are the best. I always use Humbrol gloss black as primer for the Alclad Metallics and never had a problem, so never tried the Alclad primers for that reason. Davide
  2. Flawless finish, Don! I am keen on natural metal finish techniques (I'm building since ages a Super Constellation to be done in NMF), so can you share what kind of "bad experience" you had with them before, and how you did "beat them into working"? Cheers Davide
  3. The Sword T.5, OOB except the Master pitot, and the fin decal. The original was totally out of scale, so I used the one of the Airfix kit. The resin seats and colored photoetched parts are from the box.
  4. The Airfix F.6, OOP except Xtradecal decals, Master pitot and scratchbuilt cannon muzzle brakes. From a 1.25 mm steel tube with cuts made with a cutting wheel.
  5. I have always had a soft spot for the Lightning. I built my first when I was a teenager from the Frog box. Not exactly a "beautiful" aircraft, with its massive belly tank, but something that gives the idea of brute force, like a MiG-25 or the A-10. After some time the Trumpeter kit came out, I decided to buy and build it. Then the Airfix came out, and being more accurate in shape, I decided to build it. And then the Sword trainer came out, so... why not? Here they are. The Trumpeter F.6. With Aires cockpit, Aires corrected exhausts, Xtradecal decals and Master pitot.
  6. Hi Chris, here's a possibility, with the Kh-58 anti-radar Missile and a Phantasmagoria pod. Another The airshow-stile show of possibilities Laser guided bombs (one shown, but two side by side should be possible) And most interesting, a couple of pics from Airliners.net with mock anti-radiation missile Kh-31, the necessary Phantasmagoria pod in the centreline aft station, and a laser guided bomb in the centreline forward station. http://www.airliners.net/photo/Russia-Air-Force/Sukhoi-Su-24M2/418373/L?qsp=eJwtjcEKwjAQRP9lzvWgUZHc9Af00B9YsosWqwm7KRpK/900eBseb2ZmhPjO8s19SQIPE9LwQIdESi%2BDnzGZKLw7HVyHp5RPVLbVnDa7fRUtar6UCpiynEOQlIX//Kq8dsFioW3e68e2BtFby3DHynmwNFLbkEzDiGX5AfmNMVI%3D http://www.airliners.net/photo/Russia-Air-Force/Sukhoi-Su-24M2/413408/L?qsp=eJwtjcEKwjAQRP9lzhWMVQ%2B56Q/owR9YkkWL1YTdLRpK/900eBseb2ZmhPQ2/tqtZIaHMkl4oEMmoZfCz5iUBd4d3Lbv8OTySRJ1VafNbl9NTWLnUkEk41MInI3jn18krmVE1tBG7/XE1cBybRn9sfI4aB6pbbDRMGJZfhkIMXk%3D Cheers Davide
  7. Awesome model and Star Trek collection! Sorry, usually I'm not picky about the misspelling of Italian names (most common Guiseppi insteat of Giuseppe etc.) but this time I kindly ask for a correction... The shuttle was named for Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) astronomer, physicist, engineer, mathematician and father of scientific method. Galelio is really tooooooooo much! And by the way, in the text it is spelt correctly, so just a small correction to the title, pleeeeeeease. Thanks Davide
  8. I'm really surprised no one has commented this yet! French (also Turkish and Danish) F-100s used to weather very heavily, your model captures the feeling very well, Murad. Well done. Davide PS I suppose it's the ESCI/Italeri kit reboxed by Tamiya, right?
  9. Thanks Paul! This means that the time ratio TVShow vs Commercial in US is even worse than in Italy! Cheers Davide
  10. Very interesting, Paul. I've always refrained from leaving future in my airbrush for too long for fear of it drying in some place inside: then it's really hard to clean it. Do you have any trick to avoid this, or are you using a simpler airbrush (e.g. external mix) to spray Future? BTW, the results are simply Amazing! Cheers Davide
