  1. Could it be the "sand color" actually looks more yellow?
  2. PJ Productions : https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/kits/pj/kit_pj_321118.shtml Or, if you know of anyone getting this kit & has no plans to use the pilots ( although they are for Gr.4 pilots).... https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10802007 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10802007/20/3 For Andy: https://www.pj-production.be/en/figures-1-48/63-481115-raf-fighter-pilot-seated-in-ac-80-90-.html
  3. Peter, the Hasegawa G4M1 may be old but it's not too bad and does fit well. See sroubos's build on BM: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235114609-172-mitsubishi-g4m1-betty-by-sword-models-box-artschemesdecalssprues-release-september-october-2022/&do=findComment&comment=4488978 And another nice build here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235109866-hasegawa-172-betty-g4m1-with-okha-old-tooling/
  4. Wow! This is the first model I have seen of the Tejas. Awesome work!
  5. Don't know if this helps but I like this modeler's technique ( from 17:08 onwards). He used chipping fluid. You can see how he created the metal wear effects from 21:05 onwards. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hJ2hI3YIXM
  6. I just use plasticine, a putty-like modelling material and stuff some metal screws and bolts inside it and attach the whole lot to the nose of the aircraft to add weight.
  7. Gene probably meant the Phantom itself as well as the snakeyes being dropped. Not the background.
  8. That's awesome! And I went through your site and I'm really impressed by your airbrushing & weathering skills. Yours is exactly the type of "not too much - not too little" - type of "lightly faded/lightly weathered" look that I'm hoping to perfect. Great work!
  9. I've always loved this scheme on a Phantom. Good work!
  10. Agreed. Sometimes I wish to give advice to someone asking about a particular kit but then later on, they reveal that they're talking about a different scale. Good point, hemspilot.
  11. Just saw it. I enjoyed it tremendously. Great fun!
  12. That weathering and exhaust stains are top notch! A really well-made Stuka.
  13. Nice progress! Good surgery on the leading & trailing edges too
  14. Wow! That's a super-rare kit. And the decals still look good after all these years. Looking forward to seeing this build
