Not for that😉
After such nice pics, I cant really wait to get back into modelling!
Btw how do you like the Yahu panels so far? ive ordered some yesterday and they are looking superb in my opinion.

Cristian Bordina
Thank you Jose !!!
@Soeren: The Yahu panel it's a really wonder... only in 1/72 you need a lens to appreciate it 😄 This F4F is really a great kit, only I have had some difficulties to fit the cockpit in the fuselage valves. I have had to use the abrasive paper to thin the width of the cockpit and putty to fill the joints.

Very nice Wildcat 👍 Which color did you use for that aircraft? It look´s similar to the color I need for my Super Puma helo.
4. July 2016, 13:46
Cristian Bordina
Ciao Harry, thank you for your appreciation 🙂 I've used Humbrol 125 for upper, and Humbrol 129 for lower.... so, good job with your Super Puma😉

Looks really good, I like the Yahu panel - it brings the cockpit to life, looks like Yahu is in my future purchases

Harry Eder
Thanks Christian, that helps a lot!

Cristian Bordina
Thanks Dave, Yahu panel is really good. I must reduce it a little to fit in the pit, but if you look at it with a lens, it's incredibly perfect 🙂

Holger Kranich
I could imagine that Yahu can even print those dials in 1:144! 😄

Holger in a 1/144 to see the instruments it must use a microscope 😄😄😄

Thank you Soeren, unfortunately with handbrush the fading effect (grey blue on gull grey) that I would like to do, due to my skill, it was impossible to create 🙁

Soeren .
You deserved it Cristian😉
How was the build btw, because Ive two of them in my stash and they are looking really nice out of the box.
6. July 2016, 09:41
Cristian Bordina
Thank you very much Soeren 🙂 The build was been very pleasant, the only little problem is at the moment to fit the pit in the two fuselage valves. But with some abrasive paper, a little putty and a lot of swearing 🙂 the work was done. Oh I've just bought another kit to build it with wing "opened" 🙂
