  1. Thank you! Being at Edwards with 104's must have been awesome.
  2. They're polyester based and require priming. Could have used Mr Color on the whole thing, but these automotive are far more resistant, for metallic paint.
  3. Not at all! Most of fuselage was painted with automotive fine aluminium. The rear area has some panels painted with Mr Color Stainless Steel and Mr Color Brass (this one like a filter, really). The vertical stabilizer has Mr Color Stainless Steel too, and the darker part was shaded with Mr Color Smoke Gray. After all this, used Gauzy Shine Enhancer. Then, Flory Models washes.
  4. Hello! This is my newest project, a cold war icon. It really brings speed to one’s mind just to look at her. Nice kit, decals ok, one or two almost were ruined when leaving the film. Another one I did it myself, with some Tamiya extra thin glue on it. I must say they didn’t go along fine… And also, at least for me, these colorful paint schemes are way better than the boring low vis we have today. Cheers!
  5. Hi there! Just finished this nice Tamiya kit. Everything OOB and the only real flaw was one of the decals sheet, the smaller one, most stencils. Without exception, all of them cracked as soon as I tried to move them. I used warm water, cold water, decal solution, you name it, with no success. In some cases I was able to join the pieces and have them in place. But, as I said, a very nice kit. Hope you’ll like it. Cheers!
  6. Oh yeah, I've just logged about 100 hours flight time in the '37. Moved to quieter machines afterwards....
  7. Thanks! you're right, I'll try to find out how to move it to there.
  8. Thank you! I'm a '78 graduate at AFA and enjoyed every flight in the Tweetie. I still got my flight manual😎
  9. This is my Dragonfly as used in Vietnam in the '60's. It's a special kit for me because I graduated in the Air Force Academy in his older and less powerful brother, the T-37C. Nice little bird though. I wish they had a kit for it, for conversion from this one should be very demanding. I've used PE parts and the painting was free hand, since masking was very tricky for this scheme. Hope you enjoy! Cheers! George ps: the chart over the panel is a 1:250.000 of South Vietnam, of course.....
