  1. Hello New Zeland. I will not use this scheme un the future and i would send you the decals of course for free. Please send me your postal adress. Best regards Stéphane
  2. Wow what a build ! I think i will take a seat and watch the following posts
  3. Bonus ! 🤪 I couldn’t resist buying this patch on ebay even though the decoration on the final flight to Bethpage was slightly different Anytime Baby !
  4. Your bird is looking so realistic. With the carrier deck it's a really eyecatcher. Also the weathering effects on the upper fuselage is stunning, how dit you do that? I agree your fix on the front windshield, this part of the AMK kit is a bit "stange" in shape. Congratulations.
  5. Sorry too to hear that MAC, I hope you will be able to overcome back quickly. Your bird looks terrific.
  6. Can't wait to see your Pukin' Dog bird finished MAC. Any progress on the project?
  7. Thank you Red Dog. Very appreciated. I follow your build and s progressing very well. I can’t wait to see the diorama of the F-14 on the scratchbuilt catapult. This will certainly be the next best model of the show.
  8. Thank you SERNAK for your kind words. A lot of beautiful builds here. I really appreciate your encouragements. Stephane.
  9. Thank you Phantom for your kind words. You beat me in terms of speed and number! Are you going for a third model kit of the cat?
  10. Yes. You would have done it, you wouldn’t have succeeded... nice touch MAC ! THe weathering process will subdued it
  11. Hello Phantom, great looking bird! Which sheet did you take the Canadian flag from? Congratulations!
  12. Thank you guys your comments are much appreciated. Time for a new project. I will follow your builds with attention.
  13. AMK F-14D 1/48 VF-31 Final scheme before retirement
  14. Hello Brian. I only use my iphone to add picture on my posts. How do you proceed ? Transfert to your computer with sync cable or sent by mail? Typically iphone pictures weighted around 2MB.
  15. LAST UPDATE BABY ! Call it finished! 😅 Only the actuactors on the upper airbrake are missing. As expected the small details require so much time: pitot and AOA probes, panels of the landing gear covers (i hate painting the red lines on the edge of it) and their actuators, ladder, etc... (I've made an error when painting the lights, can you spot it?) I overcome the canopy disaster with the "3 spare parts" alternative included the box. Thank you Crackerjazz for your advise but i can't find this product in Europe.😒 Final thoughs:
  16. Thank you for your usefull links. I will try to find it at my LHS. I generaly use PVA or MEK PAK (may be too much agressive for clear styrene). Regards.
  17. Hello, what tenacity to finish the assembly of this kit forces respect. You deserve our admiration here. Who has not known the nightmare of old decals cracking does not know what he has missed. Congratulations, the finish line is closing in.
  18. Great marbling skills here. Maskol is a great idea. I also find my inspiration on the Doog's video (espacially the Intruder's one). Ready for more.
  19. Hello Red Dog. Thank you for your kind support. I planned an open configuration. I hope i could achieve this kit in the next month if i don't mess again some work...
  20. Thank you mate. I managed to remove the detailed internal structure of the first canopy. Thanksfully I purchased 10 years ago the VF decal sheet for the Tomcatters last Tomcat cruise so I can pick up the names for the second canopy. For the multi-parts canopy I will follow your advice to subdue the optical white edge effect.What is Hyp GS?
  21. Not a shame at all MAC. The same here, have a queen shelve Growler sitting upside down for years ! Apart from the canopy (damn again) all is ready for glueing. The mojo has gone away and i can't find out why. Always need a new project.
  22. UPDATE BABY ! Loadout time. Configuration will be AIM-9 on station 1A/8A - Aim-54C on station 1B - GBU-12 on stations 3 & 6 Fuel tanks are on the way and Lantirn also ready for installation. A big f*** *** (but in french!) went out of my mouth as i remove the masking tape from the canopy (more than words, just see 😒). Crack just on the front. I wanted to avoid using the canopy in three pieces, I think it’s a failure. Stay safe
