  1. Thank you guys for the info. ... also I like to know more just like Peter's question, (+1 in here)! ๐Ÿ™‚ let_models,
  2. Just want to know how quality for the kit? a brand new release or Italeri re-box from some one else? please let us know, we really appreciate it! thank you, ๐Ÿ™‚ let_models,
  3. Definitely this kit (U-6) was out of product for while and hard to find now... but if you lucky enough, you still find one at some of the models show vendors with a reasonable price! I got mine last year at OC show Fullerton CA. and very happy of it! cheer! let_models,
  4. OK...that was Pro Modeler kit! I forgot about that, thanks ๐Ÿ˜ƒ let_models
  5. You said: "Monogram/Revell reboxing of the Hasegawa A-4"...can you show the Box art picture? your Blue Angel was awesome!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ let_models ๐Ÿ™‚
  6. if you zooming up the previous picture from TrietCam in earlier post (especially on the first couple slots) you will see how the louvers are, I have a good ref picture shown a French's Bearcat... but can not found it for now sorry! hope it will pop up later on...cheer! ๐Ÿ™‚ let_models,
  7. Here's the reworks after the build completed, little bit painful on that way!๐Ÿ˜ let_models, ...but the results came out not to bad!
  8. nice piece of PE for the cockpit! are you going to build a VNAF Bearcat Ray? when I did the Academy (Hobbycraft) kit while back ago...I didn't know they have the engine's louvers (I think the French modified locally during the war), I have to add them on later after the kit have been completed... the Hobby Boss look like don't have that option either, I thought you take a note of that! cheer,๐Ÿ™‚ let_models,
  9. Looking good! a very nice kit, thank you Guys, really appreciated! ๐Ÿ‘
  10. Nice picture! I think this one at TSN AB tail code 'I' ?!... in front of officer club Huynh Huu Bac. ๐Ÿ‘ I don't know much about Hobby Boss kit, if Ray have some sprues shot...really appreciate it! Cheer ๐Ÿคจ let_models,
  11. I have another picture for 'the 5338' being refuel and some of the crews ( GI for sure) standing around...look like the 'Bear' is ready for take off after that! Interesting I look through the details of this Bearcat , it was a reconnaissance bird, the camera pot is clearly seen on the fuselage...too bad we didn't see other camera under the fuselage! normally the recon. bird have some camera underneath, did any one know the configuration of the camera on this bird?! Cheer ๐Ÿ™‚ let_models,
  12. Hi Ray, I built this kit a while ago...at 2010, if I remember right I used a very cheap paint , a small 1/4 oz. bottle from Testors, mixing up between Met. Aluminium and Flat Silver? using a very light weathering with acrylic gray+yellow paint, then apply a layer of semi gloss sealer over. Hope it help! Cheer ๐Ÿ™‚ Let_models,
  13. ...and here it is the results: cheer ๐Ÿ™‚ Let_models,
  14. I agreed with Triet said, he absolutely correct. I think one of the reason Hobbycraft made the kit with an extra vertical tail for -2, because they focus on a later release for F-8F2 version, but a big ERROR still remain on the kit it was the exhaust trough, it was too long for the F-8F1 version. So if you build this -1 version you're definitely need to modify this plus the cowling... for the cowling I be able to sand it down the edge of the front cowling and it be turn out not to bad at all, here's mine built in year ago...
  15. Hi Triet, how are you doing? Nice to hear from you again! Also I would like to share with you guys some of the pictures of VNAF Bearcat... most of them are gate guard, it has been a while, more than 45 years ago... Cheer ๐Ÿ˜ƒ let_models *at Nha Trang AB *also at Nha Trang AB with some fellow Air Cadet cir 1972 Note: new logo image on the cowling ( TTHLKQ = Air Training Center) *at Bien Hoa AB ? *at VNAF Headquarter TSN AB
