  1. 80millionth +2! Fantastic and painless transaction with Mr. G. Contact initiated on Thursday and parcel delivered on Monday. Kit was securely boxed up and everything was as advertised. Thanks Don.
  2. Thanks Scooby. Les Cox (pilot) and Roy Smith (WSO) were the two crew members killed. I built this for Les's widow and her son. I'm also refreshing a similar model for Les's daughter to look like this one.
  3. Thanks for the kind words guys. Emvar - yup. I have the Kittyhawk kit but it's down the list of builds. I still have the Tiger Meet to do too! Ron and Dutch...thank you. I always considered it a privilege to serve my community for the 31+ years that I did.
  4. Earlier this week, I presented this commission build to the widow and son of the pilot who was killed on 05 July 1976. The aircraft went into the Straight of Georgia, near CFB Comox in British Columbia. The pilot and aircraft were never recovered. Alclad II lacquers, Model Master Enamels and Metalizers, Leading Edge Models Decals and Belcher Bits decals were used in completion of the project. No AM other than decals.
  5. An F-86A or early F-86E or a Canadair Sabre 2 or 6 with the appropriate fuselage vents, narrow chord slatted wings for the early E / 2 and the proper '6-3' wing minus the 12" extension of the F-86F-40 for the Mark 6. Preferably by Tamiya or Hasegawa in 48th and 32nd scale. And as Sean mentioned, a new CF-100 (Marks 3, 4 and 5) and a CT-114 Tutor, both in 48th scale and preferably by Tamiya or Hasagawa.
  6. PM sent. I don't have them but sent you some info on someone who does. Hurry.
  7.

  8. 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.
  9. 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...
  10. 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?
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. Scott, https://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&tbm=isch&source=hp&biw=1314&bih=726&ei=AQJoX4KgEIe4ggf5iY6IDg&q=monogram+f-86f&oq=monogram+f-86f&gs_lcp=CgNpbWcQAzoICAAQsQMQgwE6BQgAELEDOgIIADoECAAQHjoGCAAQCBAeOgQIABAYUIEKWLEuYJI5aABwAHgAgAFbiAHDCJIBAjE0mAEAoAEBqgELZ3dzLXdpei1pbWc&sclient=img&ved=0ahUKEwjCpN_EjPnrAhUHnOAKHfmEA-EQ4dUDCAY&uact=5#imgrc=o0xQ8ad60uaHIM If you're referring to the 'Black Angel' boxing of the kit in the link above, I've built it. It's no Hasegawa or Academy but it's a passable representation of a Sabre. The
  14. A bit pricey but the top of the sheet is a 603 Sqn Mk. 22. https://www.ultracast.ca/product-p/es48212.htm

  16. Beautifully done, Chuck. Another masterpiece. Mike
  17. As you wish, sir. You're welcome. I find some of their prices a bit out there too but on occasion...
  18. The SuperScale sheet is available at Ultracast for $15.95 (Cdn). That's $11-$12 U.S. plus shipping.
  19. 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
  20. Exactly. How the heck we went from a discussion about the lack of availability of MM enamels to school yard name calling baffles me.
