  1. Very nice work, my friend. The resin seat makes the cockpit pop. You definitely have more patience than I do when it comes to applying the metal foil. A worthy addition to your collection.
  2. Check the Bad Trader section for Jay Laverty / MasterCasters. He has changed the name to Iroquois Models and there are many who have been burned. I was tempted to order his products as I have a few 1/48th scale CF-100's to build but when I read his Bad Trader reviews I steered clear. For your information...
  3. Sorry to hear of that fit issue. Is the gap the same on both sides? I haven't built the 'Aces High' version but I did build the regular Spitfire IIa offering from RoG and didn't have that wing / fuselage join problem. What about clamps and tape along with Tamiya Extra Thin cement and a long setting time?
  4. ALF...you might want to try to sculpt the top of the rudder a bit to match the curves on the top of the vertical stabilizer. Have a quick look at some photos to see what I'm referring to. The rudder in the kit is too 'angular'. It needs some finessing with a sanding stick. Have fun with the foil. Mike
  5. Good morning ALF. Thanks for the shout out. It's always a pleasure to lend a hand and to repay your knowledge of the CF-18 and CF-5 that you provided to me in my builds. I like the IP and the fuselage joints are nice and tight. I've never built this kit and am curious about the two holes in the lower wing above the landing gear bays? They're unfamiliar for RCAF Sabres. Looking forward to more progress. Mike
  6.

It's no Hasegawa or Academy but it's a passable representation of a Sabre. The

  9. Beautifully done, Chuck. Another masterpiece. Mike
  10. As you wish, sir. You're welcome. I find some of their prices a bit out there too but on occasion...
  11. The SuperScale sheet is available at Ultracast for $15.95 (Cdn). That's $11-$12 U.S. plus shipping.
  12. Terry, I can't begin to imagine the grief and sense of loss you are feeling right now. Please accept my deepest sympathies during this most difficult time. Sincerely, Mike
