  1. I've become almost addicted to the Hataka lacquer-line. I use them on a medium coat of Alclad grey primer and pre-shading/black basing using different Hataka shades. A few points from my personal experience: - Paints need a thorough shake. Even better: Ease off the lid and stir it. They tend to be almost impossible to shake completely - Prime! As mentioned, Alclad grey works great for me. It's almost impossible to rib or rub paint off the model after putting the Hataka paint down on a layer of Alclad. - Paints need to be thinned quite a lot. I use Hatakas own lacquer thinner without any imprower/retarder. This also leaves it somewhat opaque but I like that. You'll need multiple coats to work up the required color it gives you great control. - Work in a well ventilated area and use a mask!
  2. Raymond, Any chance we will see reduced shipping costs to mainland Europe within the forseeable future? Thanks
  3. Only thing I see is childish and impolite behaviour from your part. Nothing else!
  4. Possible inspiration for you??
  5. Just for comparison: 1/48 noses left to right. Esci, Trumpeter modified, Monogram, Trumpeter original ]
  6. This is the Trumpeter F-100D with a re-worked nose. Only the ordnance is lifted from a Hasegawa weapons set. Rest is OOB.
  7. I ordered and received my sprue back in July. Just FYI. 🙂
  8. Seller's name on German eBay was mabilb but in the feedback for my purchase they put 3W Specialhobbu.eu. It currently seems to be out-of-stock here: https://www.modellbau-koenig.de/Flugzeuge/Flugzeuge-1-48/Zubehoer-Figuren/Umbausaetze/SAAB-Viggen-Upgrade-for-TAR4803-TAR4807 Future release here: https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/TARSPRUE HTH
  9. The new sprue is available from various sources. I got mine from a seller on German eBay a few months ago.
  10. SEA scheme looks fantastic. What brand of color did you use?
  11. Sometimes you'll see targeting pods used in A2A scenarios to aid visual ID of other aircraft.
  12. You guys are still aware that you are discussing a plastic model kit, right? It's not like AMK promised a cure for cancer, world peace or that everyone replying to this thread will become a billionaire. Bjarne
