Jason Hayes added the Eduard Rockin' Rhino in 1:48 to his wishlist
17. March 2016 at 23:35:05 Share
Derek Jordan Aren't you F-4d out by now? Lol

18. March 2016 at 14:03:56
Jason Hayes I could easily do another Phantom. I really like this Academy kit, and I get better results with each one. I'd also like to see what upgrades Eduard includes.
18. March 2016 at 18:05:32
Derek Jordan Eduard's inclusions in that Phantom kit, if they are basically the same ones that were in mine, are largely disappointing.

The pre finished cockpit and exterior PE are great, as are the canopy and wheel masks. The resin wheels are also very nice.

The resin nozzles are beautiful, but the burner cans behind the nozzles didn't fit without substantial modification (and really don't add a great deal that the kit cans don't). The resin seats and the PE that goes with them are beautiful, but you will need to do some modification to get them in the cockpit and still be able to put the cylinders that raise and lower the canopy glass. I would almost use the kit plastic, and the PE belts, pull handles, etc and get the best of both worlds.

I like having everything in the box like that (I'm building their profipack F6F-3 right now, and I'm happy with it all), but some of their stuff has really disappointed me recently.

The sparrows that they recommend by part number for that academy kit won't fit without modifying the sparrow bays and the sparrows themselves. The fins are simply too big, they overlap each other in the nose bays, and hit the splitter plates. That really disappointed me, honestly.

I've built my two F-4s, its time to stretch my legs and try other things. I've got three going. The hellcat I mentioned, a 1/24 spitfire I'm working on refurbishing, and a 1/48 eduard Bell X-1 (I'm waiting on canopy masks to arrive from Canada for that thing). After that, who knows. Maybe an F-86 or F-104 I've got in the stash, or maybe the Stuka, Hurricane, or Eduard P-39 I've got.
18. March 2016 at 18:59:05
Bryce Nicely I'm really tempted to do a USMC Phantom now that I have mine wrapped for the GB. I've never even been that big of a Phantom fan, but after building that one I've gained a bit of a soft spot for it. If this Eduard kit fits anything like their Mk VIII Spitfire that I'm doing now, this will be a great build.
20. March 2016 at 21:13:01
Derek Jordan Bryce, I can't say enough that the Eduard spit was the best kit I have ever built. It was fantastic.

I put up new pics of the spitfire refurbish I am doing. It's getting close to the end. I think its working out well, actually.
20. March 2016 at 22:01:13
Bryce Nicely Your Spit looks stellar. Still too clean for me, but I know you like them a lot cleaner than I do. Is it just the way the lighting was or is the starboard roundel a little wavy?

And yes, the Eduard Spit is fantastic so far. I've never had glass fit as perfectly as it has on this build and only a few spots have needed putty. My biggest bitch about it is the two-piece cowl. I don't understand why they couldn't just mold it as one piece and save us from trying to fix the gap without ruining the fine rivet detail. I think I did a pretty good job of it, but still no reason for it.
21. March 2016 at 00:51:11
Derek Jordan In the picture with the gloss cote, what you are seeing is remnants of 40 year old paint and roundrel decals, under the new paint. So yes, under those conditions, there are some apparent waves.

Dad hand painted the model originally, and that was under a heavy flat cote. I sanded the hell out of it, but got to the point that more sanding was going to affect the shape. There are places that, when glossy, you can see those remnants. With its flat cote now, it's totally invisible.

It certainly isn't ideal to leave that much paint on the model, but I was left with few legitimate options that wouldn't damage or destroy the flavor of what he did years ago. I considered just using the donor kit to build the model from scratch, but that defeats the whole purpose.

That said, I'll have basically a whole spare kit (minus the clear sprue and some odds and ends). Know anyone that would be intetested?
21. March 2016 at 01:11:00
Derek Jordan Totally agree on the Spit cowl. That frustrated me too. FYI, there is a one piece replacement available for about 10$ if memory serves.

That cockpit was astounding. I spent several days on it.
21. March 2016 at 01:12:23
Bryce Nicely I completely understand your sentiments. I wish I had something in the same vein that I could rebuild that my dad had made. Unfortunately, the few models that we did build together when I was younger all became play toys that became victims to the enemy air force in my head. I did, however, get to build him with his Vulcan that he crewed in Germany in the 70s. I was pretty proud of that and he enjoys it.

The cockpit of the Spit, as simple as it is, really is a beautiful thing. The PE included with the profipack really makes it pop. Fortunately, I've already got the cowl together and the seam fixed. I ended up using both pairs of cowling that came with the kit. When I glued the first pair together, I wasn't careful and left a little step between them. On any other kit I would have just puttied and sanded it smooth, but with everything there, I didn't want to re-rivet the whole cowl. The second time I did it, I glued one end together and held it in position until it was set, then switched sides and repeated. Ended up with no step, just still had a small indent along the seam. Just filled it with some CA and sanded it smooth. Barely touched the rivets.

As for the extra kit, it would make a good paint mule, or if you have enough of it, you could do a project like I'm planning with my Lockheed Ventura. I'm doing it up as NZ 4522, which crash landed on Talasea. She looks like this currently.

I'm sure you could find a Mk I that is a wreck somewhere.
21. March 2016 at 01:32:01
Derek Jordan Very cool.

Yes, I would say I have enough of it. I might actually just keep it and build another one, one day. I've only been back in the hobby a year, and I've already done two phantoms, two thunderbolts, two mustangs, and now two spitfires. I think it's time to move on to a new subject.

After this spit (and hellcat, and X-1) I'm probably going into the Hasegawa F-104C. I was surprisingly able to get my hands on long out of production decals to make it from the Tennessee Air Guard out of Knoxville, as flown during the Berlin Airlift.

That derelict subject is perfect. You do like to weather your models, don't you? ;)
21. March 2016 at 02:02:01
Bryce Nicely Haha, I really do. I try not to overdo it though, at least with aircraft. The Ventura is really going to push my limits, but I think I can pull it off. I have AM engines on order and some sheet and tube styrene. There is a big hole on the port side so I'll have to scratchbuild a good portion of the interior. The top turret is also long gone so that's another spot that is open. All the glass is gone so at least I won't have to mess with any of that.
