  1. mrvark, you sir, are my hero! Those are exactly the kinds of pictures I have been searching for! Thank you very much. I am amazed at how clean and slick the BRU-3A/A is! The Hasegawa kit pylons looks to be a pretty good representation. - Steve
  2. I definitely see the differences now between a MER and a BRU-3A/A! This thread has been super enlightening. Rest assured, I will use the kit pylons 😇 I have been trying to find some closer views of the pylon to see if there are any details I can add. The kit pylons are a bit basic, but serviceable. Steve
  3. Fascinating- thanks for the info!
  4. EDIT- you’re right and x4. Basic, but I can work with them. Steve
  5. great info! Thanks for the reply! Ok, forgive my ignorance, but how does a BRU-3/A differ from a MER? Is it just an aerodynamic fairing at the front of the pylon? They look awfully close online- perhaps I could get away with it in 1/72 as I don’t see any off the shelf BRU-3s but Eduard makes a 1/72 MER? Thanks, Steve
  6. thanks for the responses! Slant 4 inboard- you mean on the bottom side of the MER and the side away from the aircraft right?
  7. Question to the crowd- Does anyone have a picture of an F-111A carrying Mk.20 Rockeye? A web search says it’s possible, looks like 4x on each MER, but I haven’t found a single photo. I know it probably wasn’t carried operationally but...if it’s possible, 16 Mk.20s are going on my recently delivered Hasegawa F-111A 😉. Cheers, Steve
  8. Superb! Glad to see this on the Facebook group as well. I love the photography! Steve
  9. I’m glad you like it - thanks for your encouragement along the way 👍🏻 Thanks- I was hoping they would spruce up the non-weathered nature of the build. Clean airplanes don’t have to be boring! Thank you Carlos - YOU are setting the bar incredibly high with your F4U-1A build- it is magnificent! Thanks for sharing it with us. I appreciate it 🤜🏻 Clean and classy! Thanks ☺️ Steve

  11. Nice looking jet! I think the HAVE GLASS scheme came out well in the end. I didn't know you built in 1/48th 😜 Steve
  12. The RB tool is great- much faster than punching each one individually. It should work out fine with thin paint layers. Your Corsair also inspired my build- the scratch building you are doing to improve the kit is truly amazing! Steve
  13. Sweet! I love that scheme on the ‘109. Your masks worked great!
