Finished builds

Recommended Posts

If your going to paint up one Sabre you might as well save money and finish up the other one.

1/48 Hasegawa with Leading Edge decals for 421 squadron.

Well, considering the amount of aftermarket you used, and 1/72 not being your favorite scale (I think?), this is looking excellent! I don't see a whole lot wrong with it, apart from the issues you already mentioned. Could it be that the gun is hanging a bit low to the ground because the landing gear is angled not quite right?

Definitly one to be proud off!

yeah thanks!

I was getting nervous cause it didn't seem anyone liked it. Critique corner wasn't the place for it apparently.

The gun sits low because of being a resin replacement and I wanted it to be able to turn still. I re-cut it off and re-mounted it so it sits higher but is still a tad low. I'm fine with it. I definitely try not to do 1/72 too often since it's small and am proud of this effort. Just not happy with the few things that turned out ugly.

Beauty Sabres Phantom.

Good looking Sabres, Shawn. Nice save on the 1/32 one. Gotta build me one myself one time.

Hi,

Great stuff around here, guys. :thumbsup:

Here's my M-60A3.

The driver's vision blocks attracted the "mud" I was spraying onto the model like magnets. I painted them black again as I'm pretty sure he would have wiped these clean now and then. :D

Great M60A3, Stefan! I really like the mud/dust effect on the tracks and surrounding area.
