  1. The sweet lines of the Flanker. Looks great!
  2. The cockpits look great! I hope your exams went well. Take care, Chris
  3. Hello, Nice to see someone putting this together. Starting off great with some nice detail painting. ๐Ÿ‘ I have one in my stash I just picked up so will be watching with interest. Happy Modeling, Chris
  4. I got mine recently and have spent a great deal of time oohing and awing over it. Haneto will you be doing a beautiful build guide like you did for the Su-35? Happy modeling everyone, Chris
  5. Looks like you have your work cut out for you. I have this kit in my stash so I will be following along. Thanks for pointing out the errors and fixes you have found so far. Happy New Years! Chris
  6. Looks like a great start. I have been slowly plunking away at this kit myself. I agree whole heartedly it is a wonder to work with. Enjoy what's left of the weekend, Chris
  7. I hate to repeat what has been said but WOW!! Some great techniques shown here and inspiration not just for this kit but others as well. Keep up the great work! Chris
  8. Believe it or not even in a dessert environment hypothermia in a patient with shock is a killer. Those little Mylar blankets are put on for a reason. Being from the great white north it's a real challenge to keep people from becoming hypothermic. Looks great so far. ๐Ÿ‘ Chris
  9. That is fantastic! Glad to hear it and looking forward to it. Chris
  10. Hi there, Any chance of a reissue on this awesome book? Mine went AWOL. ๐Ÿ˜ž
  11. Finished putting the decals on the aft cabin area. Looking at the reference pictures I have I made the unwelcome discovery that the walls of the aft cabin are covered with a quilted insulation. http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/awa01/401-500/awa449-CH-149-Spenard/31.jpg http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/awa01/401-500/awa449-CH-149-Spenard/33.jpg I don't know how I missed that. Well that isn't happening with this model. Oh well... Carrying on: The SAR and Flight Engineer seats turned out OK. All put together: Slowly getting there. Chris
  12. Finished the front wheel well. Went to add the landing lights and realized... I had installed the photoetched pieces backwards. Bad words were said. :bandhead2:/> I just can't think of a way of fixing it. Chris
  13. I used the Belcher Bits Decal on the loading ramp and they were really good. Very impressed. Chris
  14. Thank you for the link and for the compliment about my skills. I am just getting back into the hobby after a long hiatus. There are a lot of amazing additions that weren't affordable when I was doing this up to about 10 or so years ago. I looked at your build as well as Emil's and as you mentioned above have checked out some other forums to find out more about this kit. Looks like I have some serious work ahead of me. I hope I am up to the challenge. Your finished conversion looks really great. How were the decals that came with the conversion from Belcher's Bits? They look really good
  15. Thank you for the compliment. Do you have any advice, having completed this bird? Did you do a WIP of your project? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again, Chris
  16. I found out much to my displeasure while dry fitting that the Port interior wall is now about 1 mm too long. The instrument panel with the Eduard set added: Here is a shot of the assembled SAR seats and the Flight engineer seat from the Belcher's Bits set. About the only deviation I made from the instructions was to add an I beam on the base of the SAR seats instead of the square beam suggested for support. The square beam is accurate but I like the visual interest of the I beam. I just hope I can do them justice when I paint them. Chris
  17. I really wish I was talented enough to paint that level of detail. The panels are from Eduard's very nice interior set. Thanks for looking, Chris
  18. Thanks Ray. Way slower then I had planned but still creeping along. Chris
  19. Are the construction pictures on this forum? or can you provide a link to them? Truly inspirational! Great job, Chris
  20. Hey Guys, So this is not totally forgotten. I have been making some slow progress. Had a major disaster when I tried to do an enamel wash on one of the interior walls. For some reason it started eating the acrylic paints even through a coat of Future. To make things even better when I tried to finish removing the paint the plastic reacted to the airbrush thinner I used and started to melt! Washed it off as soon as I realized what was happening and then finished cleaning it with rubbing alcohol. I had to sand the area smooth and rescribe it. Did a nice wash with Flory Models clay b
  21. Thanks Emil. I am hoping to get back to work on it on Thursday. I'm doing 3 12 hour shifts an hour away from home so it doesn't leave much in the way of free time to work on it until then. Chris
  22. I feel I have accomplished something. Unfortunately that's about it for a little while. I am going to be out of town on business until Sunday night so I won't get anything done until then. Have a great week, Chris
  23. Great work on the tail! This is super workmanship. Chris
  24. makes you want to follow it doesn't it.
