    Trumpeter P-38 Lightning 1/32 Virginia Marie

    It really stands out in the display case. Unique shape, twin engines/tails, blue color... Don

    Trumpeter P-38 Lightning 1/32 Virginia Marie

    I did the staining with Tamiya black panel line accent and a can of compressed air.

    Trumpeter P-38 Lightning 1/32 Virginia Marie

    The Trumpeter kit had a LOT of rivets, most were filled, though some around the gun bay doors and engines seemed to stand out on any pic i've seen of a P-38. Decals were Bombshell, worked exceptionally well. i use MiG Ammo FS15102 Dark Grey Blue A.MiG-229 for the blue, NMF was Tamiya AS-12 spraybomb and Vallejo Metal Color. Nose gear strut is SAC gear, longer than the kit part, gives a nose up stance. Props are from the Revell P-38 kit. I was going to weather it heavily, in the end i've kept it relatively clean. Few more pics. Don

    1/32 Italeri F-104J in JASDF markings

    Yes, these are the old Hasegawa decals. I used the Hasegawa decals for the himomaru and stencils where japanese was used, otherwise i used the Italeri stencils as they were better quality, readable, thin, didn't silver. Don't see many JASDF Starfighter builds in FS16473... can't remember seeing any at all. Jennings is thinking of doing some JASDF decals for the Zip in 1/32, would really be welcome.... Don

    JASDF aggressor in 1/32 from the Revell kit

    Sorry, forgot about this one. Build wasn't too bad, in all honesty it was a far better fitting kit than the Tamiya kit, after sanding down the major parts the panel lines were also very acceptable. Details not as good but don't bypass kit just because it's the Revell offering. Did take a lot of time and tape to mask, was part of the fun and challenge. Canopy was the kit part, it is the smoked version, didn't know there was a clear version.. Thanks for the positive feedback!! Don
  8. This is the old Revell 1/32 Strike Eagle kit built as a JASDF Aggressor, using the old Two Bobs sheet.

    My 2016 builds

    The hobby Boss kit was a pleasant surprise, some odd stuff/instruction issues but basic kit was nice to build. Don

    My 2016 builds

    All but the T-33 were nice builds, the CM kit was the worst fitting kit i had done in a long time. It was enjoyable due to being such a challenge. Don
