  1. Very nice! I like how you depicted the trailing edges in a slightly lighter green.
  2. No, I remember seeing this boxing sometime ago. IIRC, the gun bay & flaps were by a resin company called Jaguar. If I'm not mistaken, Hasegawa packaged their F-86 with the Jaguar resin.
  3. They were included in these super-secret 'weapons of mass distraction' boxings that even Lockheed employees don't want to talk about: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10199366 https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10109799
  4. Wow! You're Duncan Curtis? I must say your book's awesome! I was inspired to get the book when I bought Hasegawa's drone QF-86 https://modelingmadness.com/scott/korean/preview/hasegawa/09306.htm And the subject matter got me interested in drone Sabres.
  5. You mean QF-86H no: 53-1314 pictured on pg 36 of Naval Fighters No.58? https://www.scalemates.com/books/north-american-qf-86e-f-h-sabre-naval-fighters-58-duncan-curtis--109677 I think it's also on the decal sheet of the C&H Aero Miniatures 1/32 F-86H and featured on the box art: https://thumbs.worthpoint.com/zoom/images2/1/0716/17/32-h-aero-minatures-86h-conversion_1_b0344a663c0d338072802fac8baac02a.jpg You can see Snoopy just below and to the left of the Stars & Bars. https://www.cybermodeler.com/hobby/details/ch/images/ch_f-86h_decal.jpg (
  6. They're both awesome! A question: For Mitja's low vis scheme, what are paints ( brand and number) that were used? I like the slightly bluish tint of his greys. Thanks in advance.
  7. Who let the Dog out? https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/11007257
  8. Probably the best Fine Molds Phantom build I've seen on YT. By a Japanese modeler: 6-part split video series: Or the whole full build in 1 video: I can't believe how awesome his black-basing weathering technique is. Especially for the lighter green of the SEA camo. Enjoy!
  9. Looks awesome! Love that weathering work & the tone variations
  10. Thanks much! I couldn't order from the Japanese version of Hobbysearch. For some strange reason, Vichobby paints are not available in the English version. In any case, HLJ had them cheaper. I ordered the JASDF Ocean Blue colors amongst others. Let's see how they fair once I receive them. If they work well, then I no longer have to mix my own Tamiya colors as I did here: https://modelingmadness.com/review/mod/j/jegaf2.htm Apologies for going off-topic of the Mission Models paints, everyone.
  11. Really useful tips there, FalconFan. I like the way you explained everything in detail. Also, your color-basing technique ( as an alternative to black-basing) on your 1/72 Banshee was very interesting. Again, I really like the way you explained the step-by-step. Thanks!
  12. That looks awesome! I've been wanting to build the 1/72 version from Fujimi because I love that boxart with the Olympic rings depicting the opening ceremony of the 1964 Tokyo Olympics: https://i0.wp.com/charliesplasticmodels.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/F-86F-Sabre-Blue-Impulse-Fujimi-1-72-JN4.jpg?fit=600%2C285&ssl=1 https://mainichi.jp/english/graphs/20190729/hpe/00m/0sp/001000g/20190729hpe00m0sp009000q By the way, these Blue Impulse Sabres and the Olympic rings were featured in the Japanese movie "Always Sunset on Third Street 3". Albeit CGI ones but it w
  13. You mean VicHobby paints? https://www.hlj.com/search/?Word=vic+paints&Sort=hightolow_price+desc&Page=1&Maker2=Vichobby I've seen them at HLJ and was wondering about them. Thanks for the review. I might get a few. Do they need a primer coat first? Btw, could you post a link to where I can find them on 1999.co.jp? I did a search on their website but can't seem to locate them. Thank you.
  14. Wow! That Grace looks amazing! Nice weathering and rivetting
  15. FS 26373 is the color included in Ammo Mig's "MiG & SU Colors Grey & Green Jets" set which also includes an Su-24 scheme ( although from the pics, I can't tell which of the 3 aircraft the FS 26373 is meant for): https://www.migjimenez.com/en/ammo-paints/331-mig-su-colors-grey-green-jets.html https://hobbyterra.com/product/smart-set-mig-su-figters-greys-a-mig-7204-mig-ammo.html https://dukmodell.com/Paints-Weathering-Products/AMMO-of-MIG/Paint-sets/MiG-SU-Grey-Green-Fighters-Colors-set::12930.html HTH
