  1. Likety like like. Looks great. Have you considered a mid grey dry brush over the black areas up front? It would really help them pop.
  2. Thanks Oliver and Alexander. Praise from the masters, I am humbled.
  3. Hi Heli Folk I've just completed a build review on the recent Kittyhawk 1/48 UH-1N for The Modelling News. Here's a couple of pics. If you're interested click on the link below to see the full article at TMN. https://www.themodellingnews.com/2019/11/quickbuild-kittyhawks-148th-scale-uh-1n.html#more Thanks for looking in.
  4. Excellent. Following with interest.
  5. Thanks GW8345 & Eszczesniak for the info. Much appreciated. The “moment in time” I was visualising was hook and wire under tension, all gear on deck coming to a stop under rapid deceleration. Just trying to maximise the use of the “features” of the AMK kit but minimising the need for extensive kit surgery to give an authentic display pose. Thanks again, very helpful.
  6. Ok guys. Quick real world F-14D question. At the moment of carrier trap touchdown and catching the hook, I am assuming that- spoilers and speedbrakes will still be out ? Tail surfaces pretty neutral? Or leading edge down ? Weight shifting forward onto nose gear (launch bar up). Exhaust cans in open position with full thrust still applied in case of a bolter? Crew leaning forward against their straps. Would that be a good way to make the most of all the features of the upcoming AMK kit?

  8. Hey Oliver are you planning anything special for the wheels? All that gear on board has to weigh a lot. Looking great by the way. 👍
  9. Really nice. How was the fit of the decals? Did you have to do any touch ups of the red and blue?
