    Difference between the F-15C&E horizontal stab

    Hi, Bernie. So, you did find a GWH F-15 yesterday. I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think that there is a size difference. I've never heard one mentioned. Cheers, Stefan.

    My third Furball Tiger

    Hi, Luckily, this one did not need a lot of decals. Top Gun 03March-1P by StefanBuysse, on Flickr I hope to finish the others I started later on. They are not exactly the best models around, but grouped together (and from a distance) they may look kinda cool. The on in the back needs to be repainted entirely.

    The TOPGUN Trophy - Display Case

    Hi, Here's the last one I managed to finish in time. Quite a contrast with Kurt H's beautiful 1/48 model of the same aircraft. Top Gun 03March-3P by StefanBuysse, on Flickr Top Gun 03March-2P by StefanBuysse, on Flickr Top Gun 03March-1P by StefanBuysse, on Flickr Cheers, Stefan.

    My third Furball Tiger

    Hi, Am I glad that the finish date is the 3rd of March, not the 1st! I had a busy week and didn't think I'd be able to finish this one in time. This one should be done by sunday night. The two other Tigers not, but I'll post pictures of them in their threads when they're done (not in the gallery). Cheers, Stefan.

    Revell F-5E as Bogey 25

    Hi, That looks fine. If I come across one of these Revell/Monogram F-5E's at a swap meet, I'll pounce. Never had one of them. Are you doing one the black schemes of your "Desert Bogeys" sheet? Cheers, Stefan.

    Furball F-5E

    Hi, The good news is that I'll have a chance to really do better on the camo... The bad news is that I looked at the instructions and noticed that I've used FS 36495 instead of FS 36375 for the light grey. I'm not sure I'll get this one done before the end of the GB. The one with the sharknose has a much better chance of making it befor the 1st of March, there are already some decals on that one. Cheers, Stefan.

    Lancaster B.Mk.III in 1/72 by Revell

    Hi, That looks impressive! I don't know the answer to your question about the flame-suppressors. I don't recall coming across anything about them when reading about the Lancaster. Cheers, Stefan.

    Academy F-5E 7 PRS/ 2 PRG

    Neat! I've seen the pictures and the explanation about the synthetic haze in the completed builds gallery. Very nicely done. Cheers, Stefan.

    Furball F-5E

    Hi, Here's how she looks now. I need to remask and do some touch-up's. I'm not going to try to make the camo scheme totally accurate, but I'm going try and improve some areas that bother me. Gillchrist's Tiger 16th Feb P by StefanBuysse, on Flickr Cheers, Stefan.

    My Fourth Top Gun Tiger.

    Hi, While I'm not producing the quality here, I'm going for the quantity. The second hand F-5's that I bought contained one with a broken Sidewinder lauch rail and one with a seriously bent launch rail. So I cut a good one off to add to one good F-5, and I'll have a "wreck" without launch rails. The good one will be used to build the scheme that you see here. It is probably a "Ferris scheme". Fourth Tiger P by StefanBuysse, on Flickr I'm not going to abandon the other F-5's. The base colour of this one is FS 36375, so I'll spray that when I'm doing the FS 36375 touch-up on RADM Gillchrist's F-5. Cheers, Stefan.

    AFV Club F-5E USMC Aggressor

    Very nice, Kurt. I'm doing the same aircraft in 1/72 for this GB. While the AFV Club F-5 in 1/48 is nicer than the 1/72 Italeri kit, your airbrush work is indeed far better than mine. Cheers, Stefan.

    Academy F-5E 7 PRS/ 2 PRG

    Hi, Yes, it's beautiful. I remember reading (a long time ago) about early war experiments with "invisibility paints" and "Synthetic Haze Blue". Is this model in "Synthetic Haze Blue"? Those notches are an interesting idea. Cheers, Stefan.

    Top cover Spitfire

    Thanks. It really helps to have someone looking at the problem from another angle as it were. I was going to use the Kristal Kleer for the bit of rear window that goes all the way to the canopy rail on the Mk VII. I hadn't thought of Kristal Kleer as an adhesive for canopies. Cheers, Stefan.

    My third Furball Tiger

    Hi, Well, it's sunday evening and this one has its second camo colour. She looks pretty cool from 6 feet away, but up close... Top Gun Tiger 10 Feb P by StefanBuysse, on Flickr The camo scheme was done with some artistic licence and something horrible happened to the windscreen (it's probably glue and it has bitten deeply). I might try a fourth F-5 for this GB, the one from 1976 in the Ferris scheme. Cheers, Stefan.

    F-14B VF-74 "Be Devilers", Hobbyboss 1/72

    Nice one. I had a look at the gallery and the shot with your 4 Tomcats is pretty cool. Cheers, Stefan.
