  1. CT-133 Cockpit Colours

    Brad, I haven't seen any decent wheels in 1/48 that match the 12-hole pattern that our T-birds had. How are the GWH ones, are they the spoked variety?? Cheers, Tony
  2. CT-133 Cockpit Colours

    Brad, cockpit was black except for the grey intrument panel. I was in a wheel well in the 80s and it was yellow zinc chromate, but they could be painted aluminum as well. sadly, miles away from my desktop, loaded with reference pics. Tony
  3. Best 1/72 Allison P-51?

    the two XP-51s were actually Mustang Mk1s pulled off the assembly line. Although the Academy kit is not a Mk1, I feel it still is the best basis for a Allison powered Mustang. Tony
  4. Tony Feredo's Mustang!!!!

    Perhaps you don't know what 'Today's Birds' is all about. It is to comment on the latest models on the ARC main website. Cheers, Tony
  5. Tony Feredo's Mustang!!!!

    That is why there is a section called 'Today's Birds' in the Aircraft Modelling section. Cheers, Tony
  6. CC-144 Challenger

    the putty must be reaching the tail section by now :) Personally, I would've never tried to putty a mismatch that severe. Model on !!!!! Tony
  7. CC-144 Challenger

    You can definitely see the mis-match at this stage. Any chance, Shawn, of knocking off the cockpit section and trying a refit?? I know., it's your model and everything..... Cheers, Tony
  8. The voodoo that I do

    One other mistake from Monogram was the large oval vent on the stbd wing/fuselage area. It should be rectangular. I rarely see it taken care of when viewing people's builds. It may be a bit of a bear to accomplish, though. Your call ! Cheers, Tony
  9. The voodoo that I do

    no resin exhausts available at this time, Two Mikes talked about doing them awhile ago.
  10. 1/32nd Kinetic F-86 Sabre

    'The Huff' was a F-86F-1 and the cockpit was black(from photos). Seat headrest was a gray. You can't go wrong by painting the wheel bays an Interior Green color. Cheers ,Tony
  11. 1/48 Hasegawa F-104J

    Cut a 'non native English speaker' some slack. Are all you fellas multi-lingual? At least he tried. Nice '104 there, too Tony
  12. 1-72 Canada 150 CF-18

    ALF, nope, don't know any more than yourself, just highly suspicious Tony
  13. 1-72 Canada 150 CF-18

    How did Mr Fishbone treat the Jim Beliveau/DND copyright ?
  14. Accurate Miniatures 1/48 P-51

    Remember landing gear doors will be locked 'up' on Allison Mustangs. Nice work so far. cheers, Tony
  15. RCAF Mk VI Leading Edge Wing Slats in 1/48 Scale ?

    The slat and slat well will be the same size as the Mk6 wing. (it's a Mark 6, with no roman numerals)
