  1. Yes, attach the outer intake trunking to the lower fuselage before installing the inner trunking. This allows a pretty decent fit for the intakes. Jon
  2. Just out of interest, what are you struggling to source? Jon
  3. I hope this is better than the Italeri effort. I shall await the verdict of some people who know what they're talking about before purchasing... Jon
  4. The lower one is an early F-4N from 1975. Thin everything. Jon
  5. Mine arrived yesterday (7 days from ordering from LM to arriving on my doorstep is pretty amazing these days). I look forward to a thorough assessment from someone who knows what they're talking about. Jon
  6. My KH kit arrived today. The schemes are spectacular. However, given some of KH's history with the accuracy of markings, I would love each and every one of them to be redone by Caracal. I've no idea which I intend to do, although if I had to plump for a favourite it would be the VF-21 GSB FJ-3 with the yellow tail and huge 'I' marking. Jon
  7. No idea if it's any good or not... https://www.scalemates.com/kits/minicraft-model-kits-11666-usaf-t-51a-cessna-150--186923 Jon
  8. Thanks Dave. I'll keep an eye out to see if it gets discounted before considering a purchase. Jon
  9. I watched this earlier. I hope someone who knows what they're talking about is able to offer a critical review to assess the accuracy. I think for a £100 it looks disappointing, especially when I'm waiting for the Su-33 to come out at a similar price point and rather more impressive moulding and details. Jon
  10. Thanks Brandon. I hope you have fun with the two-seater! Cheers Jon
  11. Hello all, This is the last kit to make it to the finish line in 2020. It's been a productive year. This is Kinetic's 1/48 F-16B made from the F-16A/B NSAWC Adversary boxing. The decals are from the kit, although I did not like the 'TOPGUN' marking (too wide) so masked and sprayed it. The blues are MRP and the greys are Mr Color. I've really struggled to photograph this one and it's not quite blue enough. The only aftermarket are some Wolfpack resin seats and an Eduard resin nose wheel. The pitot is brass tubing. The kit is a pig that was no fun
  12. This, absolutely this. It seems quite a rare approach, but I credit it with me actually finishing stuff. Also, I do force myself quite often to model when I don't feel like it. It's like exercise: there's an activation energy to overcome, but the results are worth the effort and discipline for me. Jon
  13. How about the F-CK-1 in 1/48? There are two decent kits out there but practically no aftermarket decals and I hear that the AFV Club kit decals are not great. Jon
  14. While I'm at it, I'll also put in a request for decals for the Fouga Magister. No one has done any aftermarket French air force markings for the AMK or Kinetic kits in 1/48. A really long shot would be to ask for some 1/48 decals for the AU-23A Peacemaker to replace the useless Roden ones. Jon
