  1. No winners were ever pronounced for this one, right?
  2. Great to be back. Thanks for making it happen.
  3. Great GB, big thanks to Vince for the opportunity. It's been a pleasure.
  4. 1:48 Trumpeter J-8II, PLAAF. #81192 from the Hainan Island incident
  5. Thanks guys! Last photos before putting it to gallery. Still have some details to take care off; the canopy, parts of the landing gear and finish it with a photo session. Unfortunately I haven't had enough time to finish the Sabre before the dead line. Took me a lot of hours these days to finish this one... Thanks for looking in
  6. Hvala Dragane I used X-1 Tamiya white but over a dark brown panel line pre-shading. I also masked some panels to break the one tone effect. next step decals, weathering, landing gear, PL-8s and a whole bunch of details... stay tuned
  7. Hi guys After some time,back with some photos of progress. Hope to catch the deadline on time... Thanks for looking in. cheers
  8. The finback is finally glued together. The fit is... well ok, considering the size of the fuselage... Usual spots that needs some filler and sanding... and a cockpit shot... thanks for looking in
  9. Thanks guys, I appreciate your comments... No major work on the cockpit. I only used a kit decal for the instruments on the IP. Not a perfect match with plastic dials below, but still ok enough. Thanks mungo1974 for showing us the photo. That's exactly the camo I'll be doing on the "Dragon". A lot of paint wear visible, no stencils and markings on sand color only... Thanks for the heads up Diego ;)
  10. OK, here's a start... thanks for looking in...
  11. Thanks for the comments guys. RKic, actually it is not pre-painted... I did it myself. And I know what you mean, I've seen some pre-painted Eduard PE I didn't like... Oh, the Finback is a real beast... when I thought Fitter is huge... Check out the beastie boys
  12. Thanks chaps That's right B, this one had quite a funky camo... Thanks Diego. I am looking forward to start this... right now it is just basic analysis.. The first thing that comes to mind are the different front wheels on Sabres... Dragon and other Philippinos had a full hub wheel. I'll take some photos of the one packed in the Revell box and the aftermarket ones... seems like they're all off. Yeah, the salt technique. I like that quite a lot... I've tried it before on a scuffed arctic red tail F-84G and I hope I pull it off on this one too. cheers
