  1. The original release F-18C had misshaped tails, with attached rudders. The next release had corrected the shape, and separate the rudders from the tails.
  2. That's too bad. They sent me replacement tails when they corrected them.
  3. Great! thanks for the response. I emailed kinetic asking if we could get the newer windscreen for the older kits. Hopefully I can order a few.
  4. Does anyone know if this kit has the corrected front windscreen? What kits have been corrected? TIA, Mike
  5. I have read the reviews too that said it was squashed looking, unbuildable so mine has languished in the stash. Seeing your pics, it doesn't look bad at all. I've got some really nice markings and no other option for an A, so I'll give her a go. If it turns out half as nice as yours, I'll be very happy! Good work.
  6. Ah, sorry! I'm not a scooter expert, just thought that might work for you.
  7. Mike Reeves at Phase Hanger has some different versions of A-4 intakes for Hasegawa.
  8. That's exactly what I started doing! Ruined too many kits trying to get those things shoved in there. Particularly the F-16D. Used the pieces to upgrade the kit parts and it looks very nice, and fits. Black Box rebranded under Avionix for a while. Squadron ultimately bought the black box range. they've released a few under their name. I bought a couple of their F-4E sets, and they are indeed old black box pits for about $12. Again, I used the parts to dress up the kit.
  9. Well, a year and a half later this project is complete. It didn't turn out how I had envisioned, but I learned a lot and gained some new skills. It changed over time, I switched to one Tamiya and one Airfix. The Tamiya was build using AK extreme metals over a Tamiya gloss black primer. The Airfix was Vallejo metal paints over a Vallejo gloss black primer. I found both paints turned out very well. The Vallejo was easiest to use, as it was water based. Also, the variations in color was more noticeable than the AK paint. I liked the AK paints better, and were very durable. I used Aeromaster decals on the Airfix mustang with no issues. I used Repliscale decals for the Tamiya, and they were terrible (as my other post showed). Anyway, here are the final results. http:// http:// http:// http:// http://
  10. I received a few free kits for my son to build. One of them is the old Revell/Monogram 1/32 P-40E. The kit is missing the whole cockpit. If anyone has a spare/leftover cockpit please contact me. cheers. mike
  11. This should be good! I've got both kits in the pile waiting for some inspiration
  12. Cool! Thanks, I think I got it figured out.
  13. Thanks Whiskey! Not sure, I didn't change anything from last night to today. I tried to open a Imgur account, but got stuck in a loop. I'll assume it's all related to my lack of computing skills.
  14. I've posted from Google before, so not sure why it's not working now. It's been a long time since I've posted anything and the site has changed so maybe that's it. Sorry.
