  1. That was for the Trumpeter kit. Whether it would fit the Revell Panther is another question... Jon
  2. Thanks for the reply. I can wait 🙂 Jon
  3. I pre-ordered the sheet with Hannants. Did they get a shipment or will have to wait for the reprint? Thanks Jon
  4. Thanks Gwen. I'm not focus stacking the images. I just shoot at a very high f number (usually f29 or f32). Jon
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Early 'N's did not have the intake fairings, so you make those. Like this one: Jon
  8. Agreed. It's rather limiting as the markings I want to do have the early cap. If anyone has an Academy kit lying around, could they try test fitting the early cap from that? I have a couple of those spare. Cheers Jon
  9. Thanks for this reply. I was hoping for something more MV-22ish (which has been received pretty well), but it looks like it's still a mixed bag. Overall shape is what I am most interested in, and I seem to recall the Italeri kit was faulted for the shape of the front upper fuselage (I'm not sure what that area's called - the front rotor mast housing?). I can live without a decent interior as I would button the thing up. I'll keep an eye out for more opinions as it's released. Jon
  10. Compared to the Italeri kit, is it a good or bad thing the HB is a scaled down version of the Trumpy 1/35 kit? Basically, is the 1/35 kit any good? Hannants now have it on pre-order, so I'm kind of interested in getting this. Jon
  11. This is a wonderful model. The body work on that nose is excellent (as is everything else). Jon
  12. I don't think that's quite correct. There were a fair few kits between the F-94 and the TF-9. In 1/48 the F-35s, Mirage F.1s and Jaguars were all prior to the two-seat Cougar. Jon
  13. You have done a lovely job on this. I am making the same F-CK-1C you made at the moment. Jon
  14. Thanks. In what way? Is it just slow? Cheers Jon
  15. No, they are not any good. The A is more accurate than the F. https://jonbryon.com/su15tm-html/ Jon

All while modelling or running: On the bench Scale Model Podcast Plastic Model Mojo Plastic Posse Podcast Model Geeks Just Making Conversation In Our Time More or Less Mere Fidelity Mortification of Spin Page 94 Alaisdair Roberts Adversaria Fighter Pilot Podcast I miss the Scale Model Shed. Occasionally listen to Jordan Peterson's podcast, Speak Life, Unbelievable and BBC Radio 4 Friday Night Comedy. Used to listen to the Dicetower regularly, but I've lost interest in board game
  17. Ignore - it turns out I'm blind and what I thought wasn't there, is 🙂 Jon
  18. This is wonderful news. Jon
  19. Yes, Maskol will be unaffected by Mr Color, but it will stretch when you pull it off and most likely give you a ragged edge. Yes, 2 parts thinner and 1 part paint. Jon
  20. Seconded. I would especially like a GSB version for the HUP-2, since AMP don't supply one. Jon
  21. 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
  22. Just out of interest, what are you struggling to source? Jon
  23. 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
