  1. Hello All, My eighth and final completion for 2021 is Airfix's 1/48 Spitfire PR.19. Not the best kit, with some significant fit issues, poor quality moulding and rather over-emphasised panel lines, but pretty accurate by all accounts and a model of a great looking aircraft. My only additions were the whip aerial and the Rebecca Mk.II landing aid under the rear fuselage missed by Airfix. The scheme is from an Xtradecals sheet, but the serials are not quite right so in the end I only used the roundels, squadron crests and zeroes on the underwing serials. The tail flashes and prop ste
  2. I used the Czech Model decals on my Sky Models 1/48 T-34C (which I guess is even harder to find than the CM one). The CM decals have all kinds of problems for the option I used: national insignia the wrong shape, sharkmouth design incorrect, completely wrong eyes, wrong RESCUE arrow, missing stencils, wrong font for the serial number, etc. I would have *loved* to be able to use some Caracal decals on this!

  3. Simply that this appears to be a white-bottomed D(R) from 1996/1997 with A/G ordnance. Jon
  4. That was for the Trumpeter kit. Whether it would fit the Revell Panther is another question... Jon
  5. Thanks for the reply. I can wait 🙂 Jon
  6. I pre-ordered the sheet with Hannants. Did they get a shipment or will have to wait for the reprint? Thanks Jon
  7. Thanks Gwen. I'm not focus stacking the images. I just shoot at a very high f number (usually f29 or f32). Jon
  8. Hello all, Here is my latest project: HobbyBoss' 1/48 Grumman F8F-1 Bearcat. This is from the F8F-1B boxing and with decals by Superscale. In the end, most of the markings are masked and painted and only the stencils on the rudder are from that sheet. The wheels are by BarracudaCast. My additions were seatbelts (Eduard generic set), the whip antenna, underwing pitot, small pylons (from Hasegawa late F4U kits) and the light on the top fuselage. Paint is Mr Color 365 Gross (sic) Sea Blue. A write up of making this kit is available here: https://jonbryon.com/hobbyboss-1-48
  9. Hello all, I finished this about a month ago. It's AFV Club's 1/48 AIDC F-CK-1C Ching Kuo built straight from the box. The paint is mostly Mr Color and the eagle emblem on the tail, along with the stylised ROC star, is masked using home made masks cut on a Silhouette cutter. The rest of the markings are from the kit. A full build article is available here: https://jonbryon.com/afv-club-1-48-aidc-f-ck-1c-ching-kuo/ Thanks for looking, and comments welcome. Jon
