  1. Brilliant work on those pilots! Enjoyed reading your in-progress report
  2. Very nice! May I ask what problems you encountered? I've got the same decals too and haven't used them yet. Also, can I ask if there was any see-through effects for the white decals ( ie, did the red paint "see-through" the white decals)?
  3. Some motivation for you: John did a fantastic job on his Echelon kit.
  4. I'm surprised that it's difficult to get ESCI kits in Italy, given that it is an Italian brand. It's a pity because ESCI was the next best option to Fujimi, despite not having separate slats and raised panel lines in the wings but recessed ones on the fuselage. To me, the recessed lines on the fuselage were on par with the Fujimi ones. Hasegawa would make a killing if only they'd downsize their awesome 1/48 Skyhawks. Going back to the Hobbyboss kit, I take it not many will be getting it? Given the price and odd-shaped ordnance.
  5. Just out of curiosity, how difficult is it to get the old ESCI Skyhawks (1/72 scale)?
  6. One of my favorite planes. It has a sleekness to it; like a sharp arrow. I think you really nailed the camo paint. It turned out really well. I like the load out too. Good work!
  7. Yup, that foxtrotalpha article has a link that leads to a twitter account where others are talking about the flag change. Someone there revealed that one of the production companies is china's Tencent Pictures. So it's being funded with chinese money.
  8. Awesome pics, Gabor! It's obvious Modelsvit really put a lot of thought into the design to make it as easy as possible for us modelers.
  9. Yes, I too like the original version. The rivets were actually very finely done (unlike some of the Trumpeter man-holes). I was hoping that they'd do a Mirage IIIC with same type of rivets because I quite like those bare-metal shiny Mirages with the rivets showing. But alas, it seems too many people complained and Modelsvit has decided to do away with the rivets.
  10. Amazing paint job there! What Mr Gunze colors did you use? The shades are perfect.

    IRIAF F-14

    Can't help you with Gunze or Tamiya but these Life Color paints seem pretty spot on: FS 36622 UA 021 LIGHT GREY FS 30400 UA 084 YELLOW SAND FS 30140 UA 085 BROWN SPECIAL FS 34079 UA 001 FOREST GREEN
  12. Don't know if this helps: http://hsfeatures.com/f5ams_1.htm http://www.internetmodeler.com/2001/january/aviation/f5a_conversion.htm
  13. I concur. Even with raised panel lines, the Mono & Revell Thuds are a class above the Trumpeter ones. And the underwing stores included in the Trumpeter kit look odd to me. IIRC the snakeyes ( or was it the droptanks?) are wrong in length.
  14. Thanks Mofo. I'm asking about the one-part spot glazing putties.
