You need to put the img tags around the links. Look near the top of your box that your typing in, there should be some sort of picture icon to click on where you would enter the web address you want to link too. I'm away from home and on my tablet, so I cant quite remember what it looks like, but I'll see if I can better explain when I'm back on my computer.

Its looking great. I'm sure the rivets will really stand out with the bare metal paint. It makes EVERYTHING stand out!

after painting with alclad I discovred that T-bolts had dorsal fin, so this thing will be scratch build...

I finnished QB engine.. upgrade it with push rods and wireing.

The use of grey, white, and black under the Alclad has worked beautifully, when you want a subtle colour difference between panels. I will try that with my Sabre.

Brilliant (in the voice of that old Guiness commercial a few years back). Painting the panels different base colors before applying the NMF is perfect. A wonderful job on the build so far, I look forward to seeing it finished.

Nice job. I'm always too impatient to mask and paint different panels. Looks great when done!

Your Jug looks great. I like your technique for panel colour variation. Good job.

I will not be able to finnish my T-bolt on time. so my build will remain half finnished, sory for that..

I'm building specific plane with specific number on the cowling and I'm waiting for the decals...

That is perfectly understandable. I certainly appreciate your participation in this build! I'll be sure to watch your build progress later if you put it in the in progress section.

Too bad you can't finish in time. I'm looking forward to the end result. Good luck and I hope it doesn't take too long for the decals to arrive.
