Jean-Michel Tilquin
Thanks all mates for your nice comments!
@ brianireland: the Meng kits are really amazing, lots of detail and perfect fit. The only thing to know is that the workable tracks require quite a lot of work, but the result is very nice. I recommend.
@ Rui: you're right, probably not the best choice, I hadn't really realized it before
14. August 2020, 06:36
Peter de Bruin
Awesome builds!
How did you manage to get the tracks together properly? (I've got the TS-043 kit)
I seem unable to properly build them with the provided wire, they just fall apart :(
It's probably my noobishness, so got any tips? :)
14. August 2020, 07:08
Jean-Michel Tilquin
Hi Peter, I had to try a number of approaches to find the best one. So here it is: first thing is to use extra thin glue to glue the track shoes halves together so you don't fill the tiny holes, then carefully insert the wire, cut it at the right length and apply a little drop of CA glue at each end, and let it dry a bit. But be careful then not to glue the shoes to the jig! After a number of iterations, you'll find it's not that difficult! It must be that Meng got some comments on it, because for the M4A3E2 they provide iron axles instead of the wire making it a bit easier. But in the end, it's worth the effort!

Thanks for the tip! I've ordered a backup set from Bronco just in case I mess up to many links :D
Good move from MENG to add the axles instead of the wire.

I was considering buying this same kit.
But I cannot compete with yours so I shall pass.
Great scene you give us here !

The kit is very good indeed. And don't forget: this is not a competition, just a hobby. The only thing that counts is have fun and learn by doing. So let you get inspired by what others do, not discouraged. I often see master pieces which I would not think possible. Then I think: Maybe one day... Thanks for your comment anyway ;)

Amazing job Jean-Michel! Hört did you paint the leather of the gunners? Great Color!
13. December 2020, 20:13
Jean-Michel Tilquin
@Rui: true beauty is often hidden ;)
@Acki: For figure painting, I mostly use acrylics from the Vallejo Model Color series. In this case, I based the leather color on their 70.982 Cavalry Brown.
Thanks

Actually not happy with this build. To start with, the kit base dates back from the 1980's with lack of detail, minor but numerous fitting issues etc. But then I had the bad idea to glue a metal counterweight in the nose with putty, which caused by reaction an unexpected nose distorsion... Discouraged, I went for the quick & dirty week-end build approach... In the end, it still looks like a F-16I... from a distance ;)
5. November 2020, 10:15
Daniel
Still a very good job, colors are spot on! I remember doing the same mistake in one of my earler builds, in my case being a load of very agressive glue that completely ruined the nose...maybe you can find a replacement and restore it to its full beauty
5. November 2020, 19:52
R VG
Still a very good built. Especially your paint-job looks very convincing. You probably used Tamiya grey standard putty? I ones made the same mistake and I had to buy the kit I was working on again! I use now two component epoxy glue for sticking a counterweight in place. Not too much though. You never know if that would cause a reaction too. But so far it works.
5. November 2020, 22:00
Jean-Michel Tilquin
Thanks mates. Indeed Tamiya putty...
6. November 2020, 09:35
Daniel
Speaking of which, you could also try to putty&sand the nose to repair it
6. November 2020, 11:00
Sarunas D
Looks ok! Hasegawa has a tendency like this kit. They reuse an old kit as a most recent version or a "limited" edition for a premium price. That's just a rip-off in my opinion.
To glue metal weights, I simply use white glue. Put a lot of nose weight into my Tamiya 32nd Tomcat like this without issues.
6. November 2020, 11:07
Neuling
Your aircraft looks very good, I would not have noticed any flaw. - For special purposes (for example clear parts) I use Ponal Express Holzleim which does not affect the plastic material.
