Fantastic job, I love it.

Oh, just beautiful!

Treehugger
Are those Sidewinders from the kit?
14. August, 07:37
Treehugger
I love photo 7 and 31. :) As if looking at the plane in a movie or something.
14. August, 07:42
Roland Gunslinger
Thank you Spanjaard, James, Augie, Nathan, Slavo, Konrad, Jos, Sergej, Clifford, Greg and Treehugger for your nice comments! I appreciate your kind words!
Scalemates is the best "Mojo-Afterburner" that I know :D

@Treehugger Yes, the Sidewinders AIM-9G/H are from the kit. IMHO they are better than the "Hobby Boss" Sidewinders but there are no Eduard either.
It's all OOB except the Camera-POD (carved from a Hasegawa targeting POD), the Alfa Probe (I didn't even know why I even had it :D ) and the decals.

I know I've written it before, but the kit is fantastic. If you want a quick and easy build, I think this is the best kit on this scale on the market. There were no problems at all and the level of detail is relatively high.
14. August, 10:03
Treehugger
I noticed that there are rivets on this kit of yours, which seems nice. None of that on my Academy one in 1:48.
14. August, 10:20
Rui S
Beautifuly done. Great photos & presentation
14. August, 15:41
Roland Gunslinger
Treehugger, yes the Academy is more „minimal". I have started it a while ago. I had bad fit issues. Now it's in the Box of doom :D

Rui, thank you! Much appreciated :)

Excellent Roland. I just noticed that it is 1:144, so even more impressive.
10. June, 21:02
Roland Gunslinger
Thanks Greg and Clifford! Much appreciated!
@Greg After I have tried something more serious myself to build such a tiny kit, I appreciate your skills even more. This scale does not forgive mistakes. I take my hat off to you!
@Clifford 144 is an eye killer ;)
10. June, 21:31
Roland Gunslinger
I call that finished :)
10. June, 21:36
Clifford Keesler
I do not doubt that. I have 2 1:144, but both are larger aircraft. A DC-8 and C-124 Globemaster.
10. June, 21:36
Greg Baker
Wow. You're right, 1/144 doesn't forgive much, but you certainly don't seem to have any need for forgiveness though... that's a top class result. I'm hoping my 1/144 F-14 comes out half that well!
10. June, 22:57
Roland Gunslinger
Clifford, i'm looking forward to see your „minis" fly :)

@Greg, thank you for your kind words. From a master of this scale that makes me 2 head taller. Much appreciated! :)
You probably already know this kit, but if not, I can only recommend it.
11. June, 10:13
Greg Baker
Don't worry, I just bought my first two 1/48 scale kits yesterday (Academy KF-5E and F-14 Bombcat), so I'll be coming to learn from you soon enough. ;)

These are some nice additions interesting paints, have you tried those already? Enamel right?
6. June, 19:37
Roland Gunslinger
Yes, these are Alclad 2 enamels. I wanted to test them for a long time but they were often sold out when I ordered. I was lucky this time. Heard a lot of good things about it. Unfortunately, they stink like hell and without a spray booth I don't think they can spray at all. I haven't tested it in detail yet.
6. June, 20:42
Slavo Hazucha
A proud collection of extras & I love the cockpit-to-plane size comparison :D!

I sure would go through some make-up melting scenes having to ultimately cover-from-view all the beauty behind the seats in the Aires pit... Maverick & Goose ejection scene, anyone? ;)

I only checked some Alclad metals until now, initially, the smell is +/- on par with MRP´s, maybe just a little stronger, but the Alclad "Axe effect" definitely stays longer (both in the air & on the model) - no idea if that´s a bad thing or just honest & the MRP´s employ some nose-cheating chemicals...

29. May, 09:12
Slavo Hazucha
Joining the cheering crowds late but loudly - A most convincing proof of the point that less is often more - no armament & the even light weathering make it look like just out of the trailer (which will hopefully, at some point, result in the final movie being completed & released :D)!

Hope a Hornet build has in no way negatively impeded your Tomcat-building skills...! ;)
1. June, 10:02

Thank you Slavo :)
I'm sure im going to build another hornet from the movie soon.

Can't wait to see it. Just remember, 1/144 may be small, but treat it with the same respect as you do larger scales, and you'll get amazing results.

Today i got this kit and i'm NOT happy.
First: The sprues are packed in plastic lunch bag's! WTF! I know it's a rebox but lunch bags? really?!
Also the only Resin part included is a IMHO bad propeller.
The colors and print of the PE parts again looking weird.
From my side a thumbs down because this is trending:

The "Legion Condor" "LIMITED EDITION" has weird issues with the decals (size).
The PE cockpit parts i used for a MIG-21 FB has completly wrong size AND colors.
The canopy mask F-18E for Revell isn't NEARLY the right size so i thrown in trash.

Do they have a QM problem? IDK, but for me Eduard isn't anymore a premium manufacturer.

6. May, 10:03

Could you share some pics of the offending bags and parts please?

That's just weird, never seen that from eduard before, have you emailed them already?
6. May, 21:38
Munkyslut
I'm disappointed to hear that bad experience Roland, I was just about to try my first Eduard kit
6. May, 21:53
Roland Gunslinger
No, i haven't emailed them. I'm not sure if i should do it.

Maybe there are some very good kits out there from EDUARD Munky. Don't get me wrong: That's just my experience with some kits and especially PE parts.

What i also don't understand: They sell the BF 108 as a "Profi-Pack". Why the hell they don't add more resin parts? Especially the Tail wheel from the kit is a lump of plastic. They produce a resin wheel set:

Bf 108 wheels spoked EDUARD (Eduard 632155, 1:32)

Fair point Roland, the kits are probably excellent.
I'll be wary of ordering PE parts tho & that's what I was gonna try first .

Starbase101
I've got over a dozen of Eduard photoetch sets and they all seem to be in good shape. For the wheels, I would check if https://scalemates.com/brands/halberd-models--10487 has any for your project, as they are the best I've seen after comparing against ALL the other brands out there for the P-61.

Oh man, that looks eggsasperating. I hate it when paint peels like that.

Fixed the paint issue with the eggcellent AK real colors black.
I call it done!

PS: The eggopy isn't glued because i have an idea for an egglot. But it may take a while...

Thx Chris!
Some notes: It's a nice kit and fun to build. Except the decals are brittle (Maybe it was only my sheet (to old?)).

Nice baby cat! - one of the better formed Eggs IMHO - the little swing-wings look just so cool - can they be made "fast"? :D

Bonus respect for the Tomcat belonging to the Osean Air-force

Thanks mates!
Pssst Greg, Slavo, don't call it „cute" or „Baby cat". He's thinking he's a big and dangerous adult „alpha" Tomcat ;)
