  1. Hi Raptor01! Did you modify its nose cone and how did you do it or you didn't because it looks fine for you? I also have that kit but has been sitting in my stash collecting dust because the nose cone just looks off to me.
  2. Obsession with FS 36170: Who Got It Right?

    That is true. I once tried spraying Gunze lacquer against Model Master enamel of the same FS# and they just don't look the same, I wondered how the hell could this happen!!
  3. 1/48 F-105D

    Hi Ben! Thanks for responding. Bare metal or painted silver is no big deal for me. What I meant by bare metal was not the SEA camouflage. Thanks also for providing the links and explaining which is which, that certainly added to my knowledge. But what I was asking was where to buy. I had searched all the on-line shops that I know of but the decals were all gone.
  4. 1/48 F-105D

    Hi! Does anyone know where I could still find decal sheet for the 1/48 F-105D specific for bare-metal versions? Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for sharing!

    How do you get to the website of Lion Roar or what's their email address if I may know, in case I'll be needing replacement parts also in the future?
  7. This kit is really fine kit, but I hoped to get something noticeably better then Kinetic Su-33 or GWH MiG-29 SMT. I'm just wondering why the all-praise GWH MiG-29 could not be repeated or even improved further..........
  8. Okay. Thanks for the tip!
  9. Are the color callouts for this kit reliable & 100% correct, I'm referring to the Mr. Color paints, or do we still have to go out of our way to do our own research?
  10. some more F-35A help Please

    Beautiful jets!! Surely the RAM panels are there, but the height of the edges should really be almost non-prominent compared to its adjacent areas.
  11. Word. Panel lines should also be part of quality control or checking....
  12. This one looks definitely a lot better, unless they are fictitious or made for pre-production batch; but even it's a pre-production run, it's still fine because KH kits are meant for pre-production or prototype Su-35s as some experts claimed.

    Thank you scotthldr for you input! It make my job easier now that there will be no more masking to be done.

    I haven't seen this picture before and I'd say it's a very good one! The light reflection was just the right amount so that the true color around the demarcation line could still be seen clearly.. Thanks Jari!

    That's exactly one of the pictures I was looking at.
