  1. I'm SO glad you are posting here too. Over at Britmodeller, that forum has a very irritating way of loading pics. I'd rather see your build thread here on ARC. So much more faster loading of photos. Awesome work! Esp the canopies.
  2. Ah, I see. Thank you! I've been trying to get my hands on the RB Production Rivet-R MINI but they seem to be sold out everywhere.
  3. Very nice! Did you add your own rivets to certain areas? If so, what rivetting tool did you use? The rivets look sharp & clean. Thank you.
  4. Like Gene said, that's quite a resource. By far the most complete F-2 walkaround photos I've seen online. Thanks for pointing out this link. Good stuff
  5. In 1/72, Tamiya re-boxed the Italeri kit and included decals for ZH588: https://images.hattons.co.uk/products/60731tam_3119642_Qty1_1.jpg https://www.scalemates.com/kits/tamiya-60731-ef-2000-eurofighter--134537
  6. Ming, my pleasure Sernak, actually I've always wanted to know about the F-16 vs F-2 evaluation too but there doesn't seem to be one. I do believe, however, that the F-2 is more of a interceptor + anti-shipping (hence the blue camo) while the F-16 is more multi-role. Some of the cutting edge Japanese tech used in the F-2 was incorporated into US fighters: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitsubishi_F-2
  7. Just wanted to share a video I found on YT: 35 mins of pure F-15 & F-2 awesomeness. Enjoy!
  8. WOW! Great level of scratchbuilding! Will definitely follow
  9. Wow! How long did it take to print something like that? Looks great!
  10. Good stuff! Thanks for the pictures That "Flying Banana" and the "Cup Noodles" had me chuckling I guess that's what they mean by "Plastic Food" lol!
  11. The upcoming Finemolds F-4D will have some Mig-killer markings including Steve Ritchie's: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10774918/10/1 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10774918/60/1 Though I do agree with you that with the release of their F-4E (Early) and their non-slatted wing F-4EJ, some SEA scheme decals would be cool for 'Nam era birds.
  12. J.C, actually, you brought up a good point: The ridges around the decals. In Dai Phan's photo above I can see the ridges of the decals standing out along the blue paint. If using this idea, one may have to sand down the decals ( or at least the ridges), wipe the fine dust away and then try airbrushing over them. Also, might be safer to use Acrylics? Not sure sure if lacquer or enamel might melt the decals. Real pity about Tamiya's low resolution camo decals. At least it's a heads-up to not get this particular boxing.
