ForestFan Simple and beautiful! That's another cracker!
25. March 2017 at 19:28:04
bora temizsoy Very good and clean job mate! Well done! I also made this kit and I know how tricky this is.. It needs you to contribute adding some extras to production process and forces you to find ideas to cover up its flaws. For example I added rivets by means of punching at the edges of the panels, used electrician tape to fulfill the gap between the canopy and the fuselage etc. But when you finish your job, you achieve some sort of special feeling that, this kit belongs to you different than other ready to make faultless products somehow! I won a third prize in a modelling contest with this one in ''what if'' category btw.. :)

Dutch Mike, Bravo! What a delightful subject, and excellently executed. Great job! And from one of my favorite comic book subjects (Although, I knew him as Kuijfe). R/ Dutch
2. November 2017 at 20:29:07
Greg Baker I never get tired of looking at this one... or pretty much of any of Mike Grant's work. I'm building a Ki-10 from the Tintin adventure "The Blue Lotus" and I've been studying Mike's superb 1/48 version to try and emulate it.
3. November 2017 at 00:03:23
ExBiker 48 I remember this one, your customization of the "blurred" prop and not to mention the decal scheme...right out of the comic book!

Florent Thouret ok, sorry ! do you have reference pictures to see this ?
26. January 2018 at 21:04:10
Alex No problem! :) [img1] or [img2]
This shows nicely what I mean: I did it on my F-16 with some graphite powder grinded from a pencil lead, and rubbed onto a gunship grey. Looked great, but after some gloss cote for the decals, the effect vanished again.
26. January 2018 at 21:17:32

Michael Phillips Now that is a SHARP build Mike. Beautiful!
27. January 2018 at 02:29:30
ExBiker 48 Great job of this "ug" plane (your words not mine). I think the F-22 is a beautiful plane and fierce. I really like the orange tint you gave to the canopy! Not to mention the impeccable paint job and build!

ExBiker 48 Good start of the Bucker, the photo etched seat belts and instrument panels bang on...Wow! This plane features real leather padded cockpit and real wood grain wood! Can't wait to see the "red" paint scheme.

Oh by the way i have a kit generously given, a eduard hellcat or wild cat with photo etch parts. Can you please directed me to how to work with photo etch parts. ie: which glue to use etc?

ExBiker 48 Thanks for the cool shots of the your build of this kit. I really like the canopy work and great splinter camo. The weathering of the wheels and underside where get touches. I hope you "win" your group build bet...haha. I would order a steak and beer
