  1. So on the 1/72 Mustang, is it an A or a B? Should I believe the picture or the title?
  2. None of this bothers you or any one else in Australia?
  3. Hi Bomber101, Yeah that's the problem with the newer Revell pictograph instructions... Anybody remember when the instructions had actual descriptions of the steps as well as drawings? This is why I go to scalemates.com to see if they have an older set of instructions... If you go to the link below you'll be able to download a set of instructions from the 1970s Monogram version of the kit. circa 1970 Monogram instructions The link above shows this as bandi-monogram kit so sometimes it takes a little poking around but most of the time I have fo
  4. Hi Gary, Thanks for the response. Great to hear. I have set up the notification process at Sprue Brothers. Have a great day, Mark B.
  5. Hi FastEagle12 Thanks for the response, but the problem is that the shapes of the fuselage cross sections in the intake areas are noticably different between the kits. This causes all sorts of fit issues when trying to use sets molded for Tamiya kits on Revell kits and vice versa. In light of the radio silence, I think I'll be doing some engineering on this build. Thanks again Mark
  6. Hello Gary, I was wondering if you were planning on making any more of your intake trunks for the Revell 1/32 F-4E/F-4F/F-4G/RF-4C kits? I will be getting back to a build that has been on the shelf of doom for several years this summer. Thanks and hope you are doing well, Mark B.
  7. Hi guys, forgive me if this was answered somewhere else in the thread, but I am wondering if Tamiya did a better job on the intake trunking on this than they did on their 1/32 series? Thanks in advance and have a great day.
  8. Hi Eric, While I have not built a Titanic or any other civilian ships for that matter, I usually paint the vertical surfaces first then mask them off and then paint the decks. After painting the decks and vertical surfaces I usually go back and paint any deck details such as the bits, bights, anchor runs etc with a small paint brush.
  9. Actually USAF F-4Es and F-4Gs had the straps applied in the late 80s and early 90s as well.
  10. It might help if you gave a little more information as it kind of depends on which F-4E (early/late/) you are starting with which F-4F (early/or ICE mod) you want to end up with what F-4E kit you have and how detailed do you want to get.... Generally the differences are F-4F's have unslotted stabilizers Slated wings (Agile Eagle modification) long cannon muzzles not TIESO units on leading edge of left wing Early F-4F only carried AIM 9 Sidewinders whilst the late ICE modified F-4F carried AIM-120s.

  11. Thanks Don. Yeah if I remember correctly, that area was where I was having difficulty getting the halves to touch. I also took part of the thick srpue runners that had been attached to the hull halves and sanded it flat on the bottom and then cut it into half inch or so lengths. I glued them in as braces across the joint in this area after as well just because I was paranoid about the seem opening up in this area later on. One thing I have found that comes in handy are these trigger grips: I got a set at the local Hardware store for $8 or so dollars...
  12. Hi Don, It's posted over on the Model Ships.com site at http://www.modelwarships.com. This link takes you to the completed article and there's a link on that page to take you to the build thread on that site. http://www.modelshipgallery.com/gallery/bb/bb-39/Arizona-429-mb/index.htm Thanks for looking Mark B.
  13. Some close ups: Superstructure and foremast Mainmast Boat deck Stern with Kingfishers and AC crane All in all a fun build. Comments and questions welcomed. Thanks for having a look and have a great day.
