Patrick Hagelstein I feel ya Donald..... I use the Academy F-16 as my dedicated paint mule, nothing else I would use it for... Venezuela was the first South American country to obtain the F-16 in the 1980s. So this is an original Block 15 F-16 with the extended tail for the para brake. I would hold on to the Academy tail as that is an original F-16A/B tail. There are para brake conversions available or you could extend the tail base with plastic card. On the other hand, the Tamiya F-16C is a Block 50 (at least in your boxing) and is lightyears apart from the early Block airframes. To mention the most obvious changes: GE engine vs. P&W engine which means a completely different intake, completely redesigned tail fin and base, beefed up landing gear with bulging U/C doors, different instrument panel, various additional panels all over the airframe, added hard points to the intake for targeting/navigation equipment and RWR receivers on the wing's leading edges. Not sure how far you want to go to get a detailed build, but engine/intake wise the Tamiya Thunderbird, ANG or Aggressor boxing would provide you at least with the correct intakes and engine exhausts to go off with a decent start.
13. July, 21:04
Donald Dickson II I was thinking about that. I was just so damned frustrated I grabbed the Tamiya and started painting the pit. LOL I will check the stash a d see what I have lurking aside from that.
14. July, 02:29
Donald Dickson II OK, after going through my stash, I think this old Tamiya kit will be more appropriate. What do you think Patrick?
15. July, 00:06
Patrick Hagelstein Welllllll........even the Academy one surpasses that one.... That is a 1976 raised panel line tooling of the FSD preproduction version that went on a world tour to show off to potential customers. It has Tamiya quality buildability, but is quite fictional in the details and even general outline. A little mix'n match of all three kits will get you there, but the most solid base would still be the Block 50.
15. July, 20:53
Donald Dickson II Well crapola. I am not trying to do a whole bunch of modifications on this. It's totally a what's the closest kit I can manage to do it and be in the right ballpark.
16. July, 00:19
Patrick Hagelstein Even though those decals are awesome, you might want to go for a Block 50 then as that Tamiya kit literally falls together. A lot of international operators use the Block 50s though, so you might find another colorful attire for it.
16. July, 02:34
Donald Dickson II I may just go with this and we can keep it a secret. ;)

marcasgarcia Thank you.
I would encourage you to put it on. It is surely better than you think. I only have 7 models finished and this would be the eighth. But they are better or worse. What is the use of not showing the effort of a job? Furthermore, I believe that the most important thing is to be yourself satisfied with your work. I would like to see it.

David Jung@SCM Data
OKB Grigorov kits. The manufacturer's website is using a letter prefix for the product number, but the kit box does not have the prefix. (I suspect the prefix was added for the website/internal-software.) Should we have the letter prefix like the website or use the code on the box? Or both?
16. July, 14:28
Starbase101 Sometimes a manufacturer's SKU number won't exactly match the product's printed item number. The same thing happens with all the different retailers - each distrubuter will have their own respective SKU number separate from the actual product number. My vote would be use what's printed on the packaging. In my opinion, that is the product's "true" ID number.
16. July, 17:01
Eddie Mann I personally use the number from the manufacturer's site as some use the prefix to denote different types: decal, mask, resin, PE, etc. Without the prefix you get duplicates in the database.
16. July, 17:06
Starbase101 I have not yet encountered such a scenario with everything I've added to my stash. Not saying it doesn't exist, just saying I've never seen it.
16. July, 17:24
scalemates In general, the box number should be used.
Shop numbers should generally not be used (they typically add a prefix)

If manufacturer adds a prefix it becomes a dilemma

Eg. CMK adds 129- since recently .. on scalemates we ignore this one and use the one from the box

For discussions like this = always good to add some example links.

Jos Jansen Miss this...awesome job, love the way you paint the camo scheme...
16. July, 05:09
Nathan Camarillo Thanks all! Almost done. The cutter is called a gyrocut. I bought it a SMW or two ago, thought it would be useful. I tried to "draw" masks with it but thought I'd never try using it again. Then I thought of drawing on the model and found once I had something to trace it worked perfectly. Not as precise as my plotter/cutter but much faster than making all the masks in illustrator.
16. July, 06:09

@Daniel - I could not find out what the meaning is ;) But it sounds really funny... ;)

Erik Leijdens From a old navy jock;

Pretty simple, actually. It kind of represented a call ... kind of like an F-8 rallying cry .... "gather round" or "Hey Rube" (old times) or "Hooorah" (today) ..... F-8 specific, however ..... it originated from a '60's "rev-up" sound from a muscle-car engine ..... Some of the F-8 squadrons painted it on the front of the wing "droop" that would show when they "drooped" the wing to come aboard. The F-8 was an engine with wings and a pilot. A rocket ......... :)

It's just kind of an F-8 tradition .... "HUD'N, HUD'N" .... that's what they painted on the forward part of the "droop". We loved it when I waved 'em .... F-8 drivers .... good sticks.

Chaz Gordon Just got a partial one of these. Same kit, but minus Chassis & Engine (got it for not a lot) Planning to copy needed parts in resin from the AMT Firebird I have. Just need to cut about 10mm out of the floorpan somewhere as there is quite a variance there. Most of the rest of the Firebird parts seem to be a good match. i Think the problem is insufficient length between the A Pillar and the back of the front arches.

I'm also contemplating doing something about those flared front arches.
16. July, 14:13
Munkyslut Interesting idea Chaz......... look forward to seeeing what you can copy.
I'm still waiting to find a pair of T tops & a front screen.
I've a spare nose cone if you want to butcher the deep air dam off it?
Also have a spare 350 TPi & TH700R4 from a 1/16 Revell C4 Vette I bought for spares.

Paul Juliano I'm not sure if it's because I see too many Spitfires with super green cockpits or if this color is too grey, but I'm not sure it looks right. Maybe it's the lighting and it'll look better with some oils to tone it down a bit and fade it?
28. February, 20:57
Roland Gunslinger Hm, it's hard to see on the photos. I just read a Spitfire Magazine and Grey Green should be the right color for the 1. But the colors i see are little more „greenish". Not like the RAF green the newer Spits are painted but little more green like i see on your pics. BUT the most pics (in my magazine) from the old 1 are colorized so it's hard to say what's right or wrong.
28. February, 21:22
Roland Gunslinger Oh, your spit gets an engine :o
28. February, 21:25
Roland Gunslinger Looks more Green on the pic than in real but it's a good match imho.
Also an alternative Tamiya xf-71
Just my 2 cents...
28. February, 21:45
Munkyslut I like it, it has an authentic darkish drab look about it.
Some cockpits look too bright & toylike in the lighter greens.
28. February, 21:52
Paul Juliano Thanks Roland! I'm going to roll with it. I can always add some green oil filter on it to tint it a bit. And it gets not just an engine, but REAL MERLIN SOUND synced with the engine!!! Check it out: Youtube Video

28. February, 21:53
Nathan Dempsey Cool idea Paul!

28. February, 22:22
Gareth Windsor This is looking great and I love the electronics. On the cockpit green - I read a great article about the colour used and basically it's pretty hard to find two cockpits that match in real life. Colour tones were quite different from a vibrant green to a yellowish green. I think the oil filters will do a great job.

30. June, 14:06
Alexander G. Got my kit recently too, what I found striking was the rather strange coarse surface structure
30. June, 15:47
Dave Morris Yes, rather like Airfix. The moulds are not from Eduard. Problem being, if you sand it off in one place, then it will look odd against the rest! It was going to go into my stash but it is such an unusual subject that I started building right away ????

Urban Gardini Yes and yes! Single accident hitting the barrier wire. She lost the concentration for half a second and one wheel cut down in the soft verge and she over compensated and lost the control ending up in the wire barrier. Thankfully she managed to hit the brakes hard enough before. Her VW Polo from 2003 is a total write off and now she's gotten hold of a Peugeot 308 from 2015 so that's a big step up for her.

29. August 2019, 10:37
Urban Gardini Yes, that's what's the most important as cars is replaceable in contrast to humans. As for kittens, how is it not possible to love the little rascals...
29. August 2019, 10:40
Slavo Hazucha Maybe you could train the kitty to do realistic chipping effects... ;)

Good to hear that only the car took the brunt of the crash... If it has tomhappen, a write off car + an unhurt person is a good balance... Lots of good miles with the Peugeot!
29. August 2019, 11:38
Stephan Ryll Good to hear that only the car needs a replacement Urban :S
With the kitten in town you will have a good help in realistic plan crash dio's ;)
29. August 2019, 14:10
Urban Gardini I'm happy that it went as well as it did. And as a bonus is the fact that she didn't like the Polo so there's a win there at least. As for the kitten I'm not that afraid as I'm not that keen on my builds once they're built. No it's the journey that is the goal with my building. The problem is keeping ongoing builds safe. I caught him using an 1:72 M13/41 that awaits decals and the final weathering as a toy...

JOHN THOMAS Hey Guys, I have been testing mixing Future with Model Master Acrylics to improve flow and smoother finish. Has any one done any testing with Future? I have got some nice results.
15. July, 13:22
JD I find that Pledge works especially well mixed with metallics, no need for a top coat. But to me it stinks to high heaven. Don't breathe the stuff just because it has a "pleasant" odor. I can't spray it indoors until I upgrade my spray booth. :)
16. July, 00:46
JOHN THOMAS JD,Thanks. so far Tamiya paints dont like Future. I have mixed Future with Poly Scale Acrylic Metallics and it worked well. The smell is a problem and I do use a spray booth. I am testing more Acrylics results up soon.

15. July, 12:01
Slavo Hazucha Nice start - the 3D decal cockpit looks quite interesting - possibly better than classic printed PE stuff - was it a true decal, or one of these "bumpy stickers" type of thing? Looking good, I´ll take a seat
15. July, 12:42
Spanjaard i usually like to paint things myself as much as i can... but that cockpit looks really good. please add the item to the project :)
15. July, 19:05
Spanjaard I guess it is Interior 3D Decal for MIG-29..Quinta Studio QD48024, 1:48) what is it exactly, 3D printed in colors with some adhesive backing, so you simply need to stick it in the model?

1:48 Interior 3D Decal for MIG-29 SMT (9-19) (Quinta Studio QD48024)
15. July, 19:07
Dave Flitton Very nice start.
16. July, 11:17
Slavo Hazucha Spanjaard thx for the hint - now I see the Quinta Logo on the box... :)

This looks really interesting - when the kit mold is just great, or there is a Resin part at hand, I´d probably still go for a good old session of hand-painting (since with my pace, I only get an opportunity to paint a cockpit 3 times a year at best.. :D) , but for a slightly sub-par kit or a quick build, this looks truly great...

Alexander G. You know you are doing it right, when other modelers use your work for reference :D

Really fantastic work, it isn't obvious at the first glance how difficult it is to nail that heavily weathered look of a Tomcat. It is "just" grey, but it is more work than some fancy three-tone camouflage if done properly.

Slavo Hazucha Let´s not be all too negative here... It´s all improvements on the original design... Doubled-up cockpit controls... Increased upper-angles visibility for the pilot... Streamlined stabilizer & rear section!!!

Trumpeter is trying to be pro-active and interpret the true intentions of Tupolev OKB instead of brainlessly reproducing the good, but here & there mildly compromised final product... :D

For those who - ignorantly - reject these improvements, options remain open... surely you can use the redundant second stick to model the yoke type controls for the pilot! And do the rest... kind of yourself... :D
15. July, 12:37
Alexander G. Bernhard is "stunned", right :D. Mr. "No part is left unmodified" himself. If I reach half of your level one day, I will be happy!
Btw ordered Trumpeters newly molded Tu-22 and what do you know, even without drawings you see it is the same half-assed approach. Just awful. I'd rather go with the old Esci kit. The Trumpy "thing" goes back to the seller.

Lol Slavo, nothing to add there
15. July, 17:24
Bernhard Schrock Eben die sehr elegante Lösung für Aileron Ansatz gesehen. Chapeau! Was für einen Füller/Spachtel hast du benutzt? P.S. wollte etwas Gescheites als dank für Dein Lob schreiben, bin aber so platt, dass mir einfach nix Angemessenes einfallen will ????
15. July, 18:59
Alexander G. Für solche Arbeiten benutze ich grundsätzlich 2K-Polyesterspachtel aus dem Automobilbereich. Je nach Bedarf gebe ich auch etwas Polyesterharz hinzu, um die Konsistenz zu verändern (mehr Harz=flüssigere Konsistenz). Stellt meiner Meinung nach sämtliche 1K Modellbauspachtel meilenweit in den Schatten, Plasto und co. benutze ich schon seit Jahren nicht mehr. Verarbeitung ist etwas "tricky", da der Spachtel je nach Härterzugabe maximal 10 Minuten verarbeitbar ist, trocknet aber dafür sehr schnell.
15. July, 19:09
Bernhard Schrock Slavo: you are absolutely right! We should actually be grateful to Trumpeter because like this we can all be really creative :)
15. July, 19:12
Bernhard Schrock 2K. Ok. Wie haftet er an der Oberfläche? Bröckelt nicht ab insbesondere beim Gravieren? Vor vielen Jahren benutzte ich sehr gerne den 2K von Tamiya. Weiße Basis und eine kleine Grüne Tube mit Härter. Leider wurde es ausm Programm genommen :(
15. July, 19:38
Andy Ball Hey guys, If you want to see the "control-group" - that is how Trumpeter wanted it to look,straight from the box- have a look at mine! (Now feeling inadequate ????????)
15. July, 20:19
Alexander G. Andy, I honestly hope some guys from Trumpeter will see this WIP and feel inadequate or at least take notice. Kits like these are an insult to their customers. I am dead serious.

Bernhard, der Spachtel haftet sehr gut an der Oberfläche, schließlich wird er normalerweise beim Ausbessern von Karosserieschäden verwendet, u.a. an Türen, die dauernd zugeknallt werden. Alle Spachtelmassen sind von Natur aus etwas bröckelig, wenn die durchgetrocknet sind, dieser ist keine Ausnahme. Wobei dieser hier ebenfalls allen herkömmlichen Spachtelmassen den Schneid abkauft. Ein paar Lagen Grundierung oder Mr. Surfacer drauf und es lässt sich wunderbar gravieren Den 2K Spachtel von Tamiya kenne ich nicht, aber dieser kommt auch mit einer kleinen Härtertube. Meiner ist der Polyester-Feinspachtel von Presto, gibt es fast in jedem Baumarkt. Harz ist auch von dieser Marke.

I like this model kit. It is good to build. Only the bed needs a little attention to get it in line with the body. On one GMC I had to take the right panel off to correct it. With a closer look from the rear the bed is warped. Don't know, where this comes from. I fixed it with the correction of the sidewall.

15. July, 20:18
Lode Schildermans Slavo, you've a very keen eye to detail. The bending is only difficult because of the angles and to get them exact, but the difficulty are indeed the triangular reinforcements. Count about 15 till 20 per splinter shield, all of them to put straight without glue traces. As in the Right Stuff said by Chuck Yeager, I'm chasing the Devil out there

Peter Hardy Good movie Greg?
16. July, 06:07
Greg Baker It was supposed to be in theatres, but was released a few days ago on Apple TV instead. I've watched it twice already and quite liked it. It's a very tight movie... almost like a one-man show... with no fluff. I suspect scale model builders will appreciate it's authenticity, but the unwashed masses will probably wish for more of a face was put on the conflict. Tom Hanks commands a Fletcher class Destroyer and three escort ships (two British Destroyers and a Canadian Corvette) in defence of a North Atlantic convoy against German U-boats... that's the movie... no musical interlude necessary.

Robbie I got this kit for the Centennial+50 (I was born in Canada back when the Red Ensign flag flew). I have not yet got the nerve up to build it. Only got as far as admiring the sprues and decals. I see you have taken on the one thing that holds me back and that is to remove the seem on the canopy. I actually ordered another clear sprue from Kinetic via Lucky Models in case I F' it up. Also thinking of getting a 2nd set of decals also just to be safe. I have been watching your build. Cheers.
3. July, 21:57
Jens Thanks Robbi, my suggestion for the canopy, get yourself an Eduard MiG 21 (there were also in Canada). Eduard always has 3 versions of canopy that you don't need, you can practice on them ;) because of the decals I have don't worry, Leading Edge offers a very good replacement, or I simply use other Canadian markings, also from Leading Edge, because the Canadian special markings are simply the most interesting ones that can be found on the CF 188 / F18

I don't worry about decals and canopy, I have been looking for the perfect red for a long time and hope to have found it

German Armanazqui Hi, my name is Germán, I'm from Buenos Aires and after a long pause of more than 20 years (twins, wife...yes in that order :), house and more) it was time to resume this passion, so I present my first kit completed a few months ago. I added navigation lights, opened fuselage air scoops and scratchbuild some cockpit's details, which I decided to close it due to I didn't like to much the seat at the end. I picked up this kit to being with to regain some pratice on building techniques (there was a lot of putty and sanding) and because for the first time I used an airbrush, I though that one color camo should be easy.....yellow, sure :D. After 5 layers it was enough, the good thing, I really practiced with the airbrush. I see very impressive works every day in this community and I learning a lot. Thanks.
Note: next kit is a 3 colors camo, Do-335. Airbrush baby steps.

15. July, 20:54
Michael Phillips So I attempted the walkways tonight using glue, baby powder, and black paint. Figured I would do it freehand since I could just cover the gray decals. It turned out okay, buy I definitely need to go back in and tighten up the edges. Only got the top and one sponson done. Will finish tomorrow.

Treehugger There is supposedly a simple way to make the tank angle down, but I haven't tried it myself, might be worth checking into.
12. July, 15:38
Treehugger Btw, the front "box" seen on the right from the front, contains two machine guns. I had no idea until way later after starting the project. I've seen something similar in the smaller newer Swedish attack boat design, two machine guns in a pod facing forwards.
12. July, 15:40
Gary Dahlström Yeah those two MGs were fed by an autoloader as well, meaning if you ran out of ammo someone had to get out to reload the trays. One of the few "iffy" design features of this tank killer. I do like the idea of depressing the main gun, but alas, the hull is glued up. I would suppose the mod would involve shimming the rear; but yeah, way past that point. Thanks all for feedback - I'll pass it on to the shop supervisor pictured above.
12. July, 20:29
Gary Dahlström BTW, The Chieftain on Youtube has a 3 part STRV walkaround on his channel...interesting stuff.
12. July, 20:31
Gary Dahlström Got the tracks on, no small feat based on my build sequence. 3 of 4 camo colors applied, hoping to get that last layer on today. Then on to rusting and detailing; the only parts left on the sprue are the pioneer tools and spare tracks. I'm not a big on building dioramas, but I've been thinking of putting it on a small base in a defensive position behind a berm. The point of this would be to illustrate the 103's low silhouette. I decided to forgo the "fence" on the bow, but if i do the diorama thing I may decide to retrofit. Thoughts?

Choppa Nutta yeah that is a lovely piece !! :)

Needs some music though or maybe a quote from the story perhaps ;)

"In a few short centuries, industrial
civilization had spread from the western
fringes of Eurasia to sprawl across the
face of planet. Plundering the soil of
its riches, fouling the air,and remolding
lifeforms at will, this gargantuan
industrial society had already peaked a
thousand years after its foundation:
Ahead lay abrupt and violent decline. The
cities burned, welling up as clouds of
poison in the war to be remembered as the
Seven Days Of Fire. The complex and
sophisticated technological superstructure
was lost; almost all the surface of the
Earth was transformed into a sterile
wasteland. Industrial civilization was
never rebuilt as mankind lived on
through the long twilight years ..."

10. July, 11:18
Scott Dutton Choppa, with your idea of a perspex base, I have some experience in backlighting film cells so that light shines through. The easiest way here is to use a block of perspex as you suggested, and spray paint silver or white on all sides except the top where you want the light to shine through. Then spray black so the light is contained inside the slab of petspex with the onlywayout is the one unpainted surface you left. I then drill a small hole and mount the LED inside the block, they typically 5mm, put a few in and have them on the side well out of the viewing area so you don't get direct bright light only the reflected light from inside the light box.youcan get tricolour LED so you can vary the light colour with arduino as mentioned, copies are only about $5 or if just want one colour and constant intensity, wire directly. Other options is Electro Illuminant sheet, it it needs higher voltages, no current, to work with, but you can cut it to various shapes.ofthen thought about using it to illuminate a star trek enterprise or similar. All good fun. Yell if you need tech advise, I'm elec eng.
14. July, 09:53
Choppa Nutta Thanks ever so much Scott !!

Will be a while before I get around to doing another attempt on the Fire and Ice theme though but there's some good ideas there mate and the tech support is would be much appreciated too ! :)

Nathan Dempsey Added the shot of the fuselage together. I dry-fitted the roof and engine cover in the shot. Also drilled out all the holes for various mil-spec antennas. Research shows the aircraft I'm depicting retained all of them.

Today I worked on installing the roof windows (tinted way back when I painted the set for the UH-1N build) and actually glued the roof to the rest of the fuselage.

Daniel the turkey got his feathers! very nice+promising!
@treehugger: you dont have to start+stop that often during mottling, you just keep doing irregular movements while maintaining more or less paint flow (which is of course always really low)
2. July, 19:28
Slavo Hazucha A textbook run through the technique... in both picture and text! :) Seeing this must put a happy grin even on that skull on the tailfins!
2. July, 21:04
Clifford Keesler It is looking very nice Jos. Mine does not look as mottled on top. I used light gull gray for mine. From what reference pictures I can find, the aircraft I am modeling was pretty clean. (Not very old or worn.) So I will not weather mine a lot. I do have a question for you though, what color wash do you think would work best for weathering mine? I do not want to use black, I think that would be to stark.
2. July, 21:21
Jos Jansen Thanks Patick for your explanation... :D!! (...and Daniel) I couldn't said it better.

@Slavo, thanks for the compliment mate!

@Clifford, I use mostly the three tones of grey PLW from Ammo by Mig Jimenez:
A.MIG-7419 US Navy Grey Jets, Ammo by Mig Jimenez , , 3x 35ml

This way you keep the tone subtle...!
4. July, 20:35
Daniel oh, hey, didnt realize you slipping in before me there, patrick^^ But I fully agree :)

Clifford Keesler Thanks Jos, I will see if I can get ahold of some.
6. July, 16:49
Jos Jansen I subtly added some contrast with Gunze smoke on the panel lines at the rear of the hull near the engines. In general, the A versions and especially the CAG bird was not extremely weathered, so I leave the weathering here ...

Olivier Ah ha Neuling, you make me proud. Having inspired a master of diorama will make a new line on my c.v.
But your choice of a bigger gun is a good idea and, of course, the attention to details and the quality of your paintwork is just from another dimension.

wilky So the B pillar didn't stay in place then?
There's a little trick I discovered for those types of repairs.
I glue in the part then glue a backing strip of paper with Superglue.
Best to use the tissue paper used for packing.
It's thin and strong.
It works like fibreglass does in real life.
The paper absorbs the glue and becomes as hard as plastic.
I actually make scratch build items that way too.
Much cheaper than plastic card.
More readily available and easier to work with.
You can easily make curves even tubes with paper and Superglue.
You can use Superglue and baking soda as a filler or Superglue and plastic dust from sanding/filing.
That's what I did before I learnt that baking soda and Superglue was a thing.
I discovered the Superglue and plastic dust for fixing my slot cars because they're rarely ever painted and I needed repairs that would have the same colour as the item being repaired.
Best part of using Superglue and baking soda/plastic dust is it doesn't shrink and dries much quicker than putty, it also doesn't melt the plastic
13. July, 20:29
Spanjaard amazing second life!
13. July, 21:03
Robert W Martel That would have been a good idea wilky. The glue just wouldn't soften the promo plastic. I should have kept the kit body. I kinda figured no big deal, but in actuality the didn't make a hardtop until 63! Oh well, I'll know better next time.
I am pleased with the paint job though. The interior is craft paint thinned w/Pledge [sprayed beautifully] and looks nice. The exterior is Testors pearl Blue /w several coats of Delta Ceramcoat craft exterior varnish. Sanded w/2000 then polished with a nail buffer. It was fairly easy to paint and I think the results look pretty good. I'm going to try it again on the next one.
15. July, 16:29
Robert W Martel Thanks Spanjaard!! I think this method of painting will save me some tile [I hope]. We'll see on the next one. The part that cost me the most was the darn fender ornaments [nearly $20]. I was just going to fill the holes, but just forgot, and wasn't about to repaint it !!! Another "senior moment" LOL.

If I recall about 15g, just be careful of placement I failed to notice when I creamed it in I'd prevented the halves from joining so had to remove and try again!

27. February 2014, 02:59
Gareth Windsor Thanks Alan. Yes, I have quite the collection of Fleet Air Arm models waiting for my attention. I'm 23 years in the Royal Navy and still going. As for the Canadian connection, the wife is from Toronto.
28. February 2014, 20:22
Alan Rush OK. I live in Courtice, just east of Toronto, next to Oshawa. I worked for a time in Scarborough as well. I grew up in Windsor, Ontario and after a few other places have settled here with my family.
I am collecting some kits to mark as Canadian vehicles, especially for the Ontario Regiment, which is based in Oshawa. I volunteer at the Regiment museum and wanted to finish some kits for their time in Italy in WWII.

Slavo Hazucha The interior in full color looks epic! You and your consultant are setting a benchmark for excellent-looking, true to original model-making here... Especially like all the "telephone cables" and the line with the hooks + the consistency in scale appearance of it all!

11. July, 20:09
Bernhard Schrock Cabin roof, fuselage top and engine bay in place. I recommend the following sequence: B34 first (not together with B30), B34. Then step 7 of the instruction sheet in following sequence: B5, B13, B7, C82/83.
12. July, 08:52
Treehugger Question to Bernhard, do you like trying to round off the hard metal edge off PE parts sometimes? :)

Dean Martin Just to let everyone know. I'm not a pro. I don't have years of modeling experience under my belt and I'm not a perfectionist. I have a total of 8 models completed and with each one finished, I find that my skills improve a bit at a time. I can never aspire to some of the craftsmanship displayed on this site nor do I intend to try. But I'm going to have fun doing this anyway. I always welcome suggestions and tips on how to do things better so that I can try to improve. However, I have no intention on seeking aftermarket items or decals. I'm more of an "out of the box" kind of builder. Oh, and I don't use an airbrush. I like using spray cans and hand painting. That's about it really. Thanks for reading this long comment if you've read it to the end.....
12. July, 02:57
Torsten Wendt Fun it's the one and important thing in building models, I'll take a seat and watch :)
12. July, 06:59
Dean Martin Finished the pre-paint assembly which did not have much. I decided to give it a grey primer followed by a coat of Satin Nickel. Once done, I'll detail with shading the panel lines and adding white to the portals.
13. July, 19:46
Dean Martin Added the final pics of the finished product. Had a blast putting this one together. Even though its a snap kit there is a good amount of detail! Enjoy the pics.
