Bob Esplin Super-soft plastic and gratuitous PE parts (really: it's ridiculous) but for some reason, just love this little guy - on hiatus - I'll get back to it; just saw one of the originals of this the other day. Again, tiny 1/72 kits are now my penance - I'll make myself finish them.
Bob Esplin Terrible, terrible kit (honestly, I expect no less from Revell), but for $8.95CDN, had to do it, just to test myself...building it (in between thing drying and curing on other builds) as the original, civilian version of the aircraft at the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, in Hamilton, Ontario. Revell: making modelers give up, for 50+ years....
Lost_Erik That is a fast growing proper collection. Well done.

Bob Esplin Thank you! Like so many, taken up again after 40+ years: thank goodness for YouTube! I'll keep posting my builds - onto early jet fighters now: finishing the He-162 and starting on the Tamiya Meteor...

Chase Charlton Nice collection! I'm from the suburbs of Toronto and I recently got the new 1/48 F-86E kit from italeri. I really want to do the Canadian RAF version, but I don't have any brown paint for the nose section, and I've got no hobby shop near me, and I just made an order online, and would prefer it if I didn't have to spend the shipping again. Do you have any ideas on how I could mix some? Thanks

Bob Esplin Good question: I used Tamiya RAF brown for the nose - don't know of a way to mix brown. Have you looked at Sunward Hobbies? They ship for free if your order is over $60.00, which I've found is pretty easy to get to...https://sunwardhobbies.ca/ Good luck with the build!
Bob Esplin Not a bad kit: I carved out the air intake and painted the interior flat black to give some more depth. If you want, scratch build an inlet valve. I've got a Hasegewa kit coming, so I'll do a European 1/48th camo version to match the 1/72 one that I did.
