  1. I’ll take the 1/48 Hasegawa F-15C. It says you cannot accept messages.

  5. Weird he could mail you your package back but couldn’t just complete the trade and send the F-4 kit instead 🧐 My encounter with this guy required me constantly barraging him to get my kit mailed to me. Never again.
  6. Latest build is finished and off the bench. This is the 1/48 Czech Model F3D-2 Skyknight finished with Aeromaster decals for VMCJ-2 "Playboys". Kit is finished with Mr Color 315 for the topside grey and Mission Models white and black paint on the bottom and nose. AK Xtreme Metalizers were used for all metallic shades. Overall finish is gloss from Mission Models. The kit is what one would expect for a short run kit and is definitely not a weekend build. My fuselage halves were severely warped and it took a good deal of shimming to get the wings level. Good references are needed, as the kit instructions are not the best. If anyone has suggestions for improving my picture taking abilities, I'm all ears. I seem to be struggling with capturing the true grey color of the model. These photos seem to have a brownish tint.
  7. I picked up some of the AK Xtreme metals to try a few months back, and have not used anything since. It goes down well over either Tamiya gloss black or the AK black primer. It's super durable afterwards and can be shot directly out of the bottle without thinning. If you shoot it at 15 - 20 psi, it seems to lay down better than shooting it at low pressures. I believe the metal particulate size is smaller, so the finish won't be as grainy as other metal paints. Surface prep is still essential though, as it will not hide scratches.
  8. You posted in the archived topics, not the main general discussion board.
  9. Is “Arrestnig Hook” unique to the aircraft? I didn’t see that covered in your article, just curious, or if you had an easy to fix typo on your decal.
  10. Thanks for the feedback. That’s disappointing to hear, but won’t keep me from getting the kit. Hopefully, like you said, someone comes to the rescue with a replacement canopy.
  11. I’ve got an old Black Box pit that looks like it will work with the KH kit per themodellingnews blog, so the PE will hit the scrap bin pretty quickly. Has anyone tried fitting the Revell canopy and windscreen to the KH kit? Having two Revell kits in my stash, that might be a quick solution to the flattened canopy issue.
  12. Email sent on Twobobs 32-032 USAF Big Mouth F-16C Vipers $15.00
  13. Check your references, on your burner can the metal color used for the exhaust goes too far forward. You will want to paint the grays all the way back to the curved panel line on the exhaust.
