  1. Great job 👍 What brand of paint did you use for the two shades of blue? Again very nicely done ✅ Cheers, Mr. Happy
  2. I’m afraid I have to agree with the experiences of some of you good folks who have built or are building the 1/48 Airfix Hurricane. 😣 I’m experiencing some of same frustrations and challenges with this kit myself. Airfix seemed to have slightly over engineered the cockpit and it is fiddly. It can be built into a nice representation of the Hurricane. I think 🤔 it may come down to how much you may want to put into the build. (Patient and time) By no means is this kit on the same level as Tamiya or even Hasegawa regarding fit. You will have to utilize the old saying Measure XXXX amount of times and cut once, or in this case glue once. On the plus side the plastic is soft and take to the Tamiya Quick-Setting liquid cement. Hang in there Goondman and fight threw it.👍 Mr.Un-Happy 😕
  3. Wolfman, Very nice job on your 104. I’d would like to say THANK YOU 🙏🙂 for listing the brand of paint you used👍 In addition another thank you for listing the areas of the kit that need attention 👍 By listening the above and more, only (in my humble opinion) helps this hobby grow and encourages others to build better kits in the long run🙏👍 If you going to the NATIONALS this year I hope to catch up with you. Cheers, Mr.Happy
  4. Warthoglvr, Awesome job on matching the orange paint to the decal. What brand of paint did you use for your project? Nice Job. Mr.Happy
  5. Matto, Sweet paint job👍 Please let us know how well the main landing gear fits when you reach that stage of your build. I’m currently working of the old 1993 Tamiya Spitfire Mk.I and after that I hope to dig up an Mk.V. Your work hear has inspired me to work on more Spitfires 😎 Cheers, Mr. Happy

  18. 11bee, This build gets better and better with each update. That R-2800 rocks 👍😎 Keep it rocking & rolling 🤘 Cheers, Mr. Happy (In name only)
  19. From a cursory view it looks as if ‘’POSSIBLY’’ AMK could make a early block numbered “Boat Tail”’ Cat .....Possibly. Thoughts on this ‘’May/Might” divert much of the criticism, crying, & nashing of teeth towards a kit that does not exist at this time. Of course that’s just the word on the street😜 I sincerely hope that Martin and the team at AMK can have home run with this mold and it fits as good or better than comparable kits out there today. I realize this can be frustrating to many as we have been told of many a release dates, however I try think of this as that they are refining and tweaking the mold to ensure we the customer have a great experience building it whenever it is released. Hang in there folks and stay tuned to the same Tomcat time and to same Tomcat channel. Stay Tomcatty my friends, Mr.Happy (In name only)
