  1. Love the lighting work on the Andromeda! Also the scratch work!! Maybe sometime show how you do the lighting and where you get the components. Steve,
  2. Thanks I used Gunze Sangyo Mr Hobby Dk. Sea Gray. Steve,
  3. Well 4 sparrows from the kit. Also 4 Brit. bombs on a pair of TER's They are Eduard's Brassin nice TER set--I know they are NOT an exact match for RN TER's But I dont know of any post-war RN accurate TER's in 1/48? I used these bombs: :1000lb bombs set https://spruebrothers.com/resrs480188-1-48-reskit-1000lb-retarded-bomb-checks-117-tail-951-tail-fuze/ Something like this but with ONLY 4 bombs and wing tanks on the outer pylons.: It is pretty accurate loadout certainly plausible BUT no real photo evidence. Steve
  4. Thank you It is coming along Working on the ordnance load ans final assembly. Steve,
  5. Here is the next installment THe bird has been painted and is in the decalling stage. Steve,
  6. Seems that Hobbycrap just gave you a rough outline of the airframe. Some proportional dimensions are off too....WE just need a new tool What IF Great Wall did one? That would be nice!?! Loved their T-33....want them to push into the F/P-80 realm to replace the abomination from Hobbyboss!!! I found the Hobbycrap Sea Fury wasnt that bad if devoid of much detail. I remedied it with lots of resin and etched brass sets. Steve,
  7. MAYBE all this talk will spawn someone to do a NEW TOOLED F7U-3 IN 1/48.....like a distant Karma thing...We can hope LOL BUT I think I would want a F11F-1 FIRST in 1/48!! Steve
  8. I am looking to buy or trade for a Tamiya 1/48 F4D Skyray .....BTW---Any aftermarkets would be nice too?? Please email me : scorvi@verizon.net I am in the USA Thanks Steve,
  9. I know it is a maligned airframe I actually like the aircraft a lot. It just seems betwen the -1 and -3 development the Navy was impatient with the Chance Voughts progress... it didnt serve in many squadrons. Mostly Recce squadrons as an active duty airframe for the USN. Is this a worthy source on the Cutlass??: https://www.historynet.com/voughts-visionary-fighter.htm My take is that the Cutlass was too little & too late in its developement since other airframes surpassed its performance ---even internally corporate-- Chance Vought F-8 Crusader. The
  10. Since the FM kit is very hard to find and be prepared to pay over $175 on Ebay when adn if one comes up: https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=1%2F48+Fondiere+Miniatures+F11F-1&_in_kw=1&_ex_kw=&_sacat=0&LH_Sold=1&_udlo=&_udhi=&_samilow=&_samihi=&_sadis=15&_stpos=02739-1473&_sargn=-1%26saslc%3D1&_salic=1&_sop=12&_dmd=1&_ipg=50&LH_Complete=1&_fosrp=1 I rec, you try the 1/48 ScratchAeronautics kit since it is about $100 shipped to you from Juan. It looks pretty nice too. Steve
  11. Wow Tommy A flight worthy Cutlass. That airframe had an horrendous accident record. I suspect there will be some serious updating to make that a safe aircraft to fly. Will the powerplant be upgraded to more efficient turbofan engines? That will help immensely for the 'Gutless' which was always under powered. I would really like to see that beauty fly at an airshow!!! I do love the look of the bird it looks like it could go into space. YES the 1/48 HC Cutlass is a bugaboo of a build......even with the Collec-Aire set It was laborious build and lots of dry fitting a
  12. Quite a bit...I have a vac. kit of the F-90 in 1/72...it is lot more accurate in outline than the 1/48 Aurora and I have a lot of T-33 and F-80 spares to fill it in. I rec. You get a 1/48 Monogram F-80 and maybe even a 1/48 T-33 from HobbyCraft for spares, seats, landing gear and wheels etc,,.. Steve,
