    K-8 KARAKORUM help

    IIRC, El Presidente was a one-man show and a university student who made the K-8 decals as a hobby venture and not a serious business. If I'm not mistaken, he shut down El Presidente because he wanted to further his studies. Do correct me if I'm wrong. It's a pity because the decals were of quite good quality and sharply printed.

    Buccaneer 60th Anniversary

    Thanks for the links. That photo album is amazing!
  4. Hmm, please post pics of your technique of how you manage to overcome the fuselage mismatch problem. I encounter similar mismatch problems with the early A-Model kits and often end up placing the half-built kits back in the box. Really no motivation to pick them back up again until I figure out a fix. Thank you
  5. That's certainly something unique. Looking forward to more progress

    Israeli LOROP pod for F-15 in 1/72

    Hmm, that's actually a good idea. But I'm not sure how to go about it: vs https://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Fimg33.imageshack.us%2Fimg33%2F4962%2Fophirnew13.jpg&imgrefurl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.fresh.co.il%2FvBulletin%2Fshowthread.php%3Ft%3D313915&docid=RGytccVjnVOwLM&tbnid=iu79bnq8ARsNJM%3A&vet=10ahUKEwjWyMDKyIbgAhUKiXAKHXbKAIYQMwg-KAcwBw..i&w=800&h=480&hl=en&bih=544&biw=1280&q=Ophir LOROP&ved=0ahUKEwjWyMDKyIbgAhUKiXAKHXbKAIYQMwg-KAcwBw&iact=mrc&uact=8 🤔

    Israeli LOROP pod for F-15 in 1/72

    Sorry I can't answer your question but I just wanted to say that your picture is interesting and would make a good modelling project: A single seat F-15 with CFTs, armed with Pythons, AIM-7s(?) as well as the recce pod.
  8. When it comes to dirty looking Eagles & Falcons, I always liked the looks of the Japanese Eagles and the Greek F-16s.

    1/32 Lockheed S-3B Viking - scratchbuilt

    Tell us the truth: That's actually a REAL S-3B Viking photoshoped to make it look like a model, right? That looks too realistic to be a model. 😛 Lol! Fantastic work there

    Mirage M-5A Mara 1/48

    Amazing work! That weathering & faded paintwork is fantastic!
  11. Hi, Firstly, awesome in-progress report. I'd like to know a couple of things about the above: 1) When you poured in the resin, didn't the resin attach itself or get stuck to the plastic fuselage part? How were you able to detach the resin+foam nose away from the plastic fuselage once the resin had dried? 2) How were you able to get the poured resin to stick to the foam part but not the plastic fuselage part? Thank you for any advice.

    1/48 Tamiya F-14A Tomcat, VF-111

    Could you share your weathering technique as well as how you accentuated the panel lines so subtly? Your work is fantastic and it's exactly the kind of naturally weathered look I'm trying to emulate on my own US Navy subjects. Thanks in advance.
