  1. I see no pictures. Might want you check your links
  2. Now I understand, and I agree the Hasegawa A-4 despite it's shortcomings, is still the best kit we have of an A-4 in 1/48 or 1/32 .. That won't change when the Hobby Boss kit comes out unfortunately
  3. I'm not sure what relevance comparing the 1/32 Trumpeter kit against the 1/48 Hasegawa kit is but if it;s because you're assuming the Hobby Boss kit will be a scale down it's not even that from the sprue shot... It looks like a simplified kit but it might be OK for inflight builds. That said, from what I've seen the 48 scale Hobby Boss kit won't be better than the 48 Scale Hasegawa kit, so I agree the Hasegawa kit will still be the best (but IMHO it's still not an "excellent kit")
  4. if you build 1/48 it seems like Hasegawa are just a decal manufacture these days... Still as said above their Harriers, A-4, A-7, F/A-18E/F and F-104 are the still the best IMHO options in 1/48. (although I'd not call the A-4 "excellent", it's OK). They still have the best F-4E/F/G, RF-4 and UK phantoms as well... Although hopefully we'll get better kits of these F-4's soon
  5. LOL It's all over the web
  6. Nice one
  7. yeah, I'll do that in the future. It's not helped by the lights right above it Hi Bob, the raw image out the camera is nowhere like that, the black is really dark grey. Post processing with Corel aftershot pro and paintshop pro corrects that. Here's a short video on how I use those products I actually found it really difficult to get good images with the black background.
  8. Good question. ..I'd have thought more as well
  9. It's all done and I'm happy with the result I've posted a full article with more images and details at my blog. But if you're not interested in that here's some images
  10. Not to my knowledge. But I ordered about $70 worth of paint in that order :D
  11. Yeah it's quite thick in the bottle, I bought a 500ml bottle of one of their thinners (T107) at the same time and thin it fairly heavily (at least 50:50) . There's 2 other types of thinners to choose from (I think). I got it from Seal models in Hong Kong , obviously it comes sea freight but I think BNA have it locally as well.
  12. I can probably live with the windshield. I hope all the open bits fit closed.If so I'll be in for one
  13. She's nearly done, just the canopy to go and a bit of weathering to go
