Thanks guys! @Gustavo: Your models look very good to me. I don't see any reason why you should not build your B-58! My NMF is far from flawless, by the way. Taking nice photos is at least 50% of the presentation.

Ah yes...how many times have i said..."Lets make sure this flaw isn't prominent in the photos."

great work so far....

Does anyone else work on a 'good' side of the model, e.g., all the best tiny painted parts go on the 'good' side? I had an extreme case of this with the 35 year old cable car kit. Some of the handrails and a step were no longer straight, and one of the decals disintegrated in water - i had to piece it back together as "Poell & Hyde". Those went on the 'other' side.;)

Looks terrific Bernd, looking forward to the finished result.

Gustavo Sarmento
@Bernd Corte Thank you for your kind words! Hope to start the Hustler sooner rather than later, and let's see how it turns out.
5. August, 20:36
Bernd Korte
Thanks for your nice comments!
@Lochsa_River! Fortunately most of the time only oneself knows where to look for all the flaws :D
@Gary Dahström: That's an interesting approach. Perhaps it makes sense to work that way when you know that the model will be displayed with only one side visible in the display cabinet.

Decal work is now halfway done. Only one issue emerged: Fox One has printed the USAF lettering in the same blue as the USAF roundel. That would indeed be correct when you look at the official painting specifications of that time for the Hustler. However, it seems that not all paint shops paid attention to those official specs as all the color photos I have seen look like the USAF lettering is rather black than dark blue. The old Italeri decals in my boxing are in black, but the decal film is impossible to hide on those old decals. Fortunately a friend owns a new boxing and will send me those new Italeri decals (black). And I'll try to get a new decal sheet from Italeri's spare part service to pay him back - quite the scheme :D
9. August, 11:36
Bernd Korte
Decals are now completed. Thanks Thomas for sharing the USAF lettering from the current Italeri decal sheet!

hahaha, that's funny Cliify. Managed to paint all the undercarriage, wheel well and cockpit parts yesterday afternoon. With the wheel wells and undercarriage I'll give a gloss coat in prep for a wash, and with the cockpit and seat I'll pick out the fine details to paint. Need to order some Alclad to get ready to paint this beast with.

Spent a lot of the day gluing in the weight so she won't be a tail sitter, undercarriage is almost complete. From what I have dry fitted she sits nicely, pictures tomorrow when I have daylight coming into my room. Overall I'm pretty pleased with the way the parts fitted together, not too shabby at all for such an old kit. :D

The books by Jay Miller are amongst the best aerospace literature I've seen. From both the modeler's and the engineer's view. His book on the Hustler is unmatched, same goes for his books on the F-16 and the U-2 in the same series (Aerograph).

You're right Burkhard ,,,, Jay Miller Aerofax series are a must for the serious modeller and/or enthusiast. I happen to own the whole seires from National Air Guard to A-3 and I enjoy reading them from time to time ,,, even if the subject doesn't fall into my usual preferences .... 100x100 recommended

This one is one of the projects I look most forward to. I'm going all out on this one. I have made this one so far down the list because I want to make sure my construction and scribing skills are up to par.

I did this kit many many years ago. Be aware: recently I read on several forums that this kit has a serious accuracy flaw: the Italeri "engineers" mismatched the full airplane length with the length without the nose antenna! As a result the shape of the kit is slightly mistaken and almost impossible to correct. However, if you don't mind on shape issues, the kit is good, with a vast choice of armament (H-bombs), and it is the only b-58 in the 1/72 so far...

Cool. When I was a kid we lived on the southern approach to Edward's AFB, so I saw a lot of neat airplanes. The occasional B-58 was a treat. We saw X-15's coming in a time or two (they just fell out of the sky so you had to be quick). A very nice Hustler, dude.

Hi mates, thank you very much!
Donald, I don't think that these kind of paints may be buffable, like Alclad, Testors Metallizer, Gunze Sangyo Mr. Metal, etc. paints. Unfortunately, These paints are hard to find locally. Anyway, I gave a gentle pass with a soft dry cloth over the paint before airbrushing with Future (strictly speaking, Blem acrylic gloss, the local equivalent).

IMO, one of the most beatiful aircraft of all times. Built out of the box.

Howla Paula, ik wist niet dat je interesse ook naar dit onderwerp uitging. Blijkt wel geen gemakkelijke kit te zijn om te bouwen. Maar is wel indrukwekkend. En dan nog op de juiste schaal :)

A ja dat is gekomen omdat Erik Vogels (Club Zaventem) een aantal kits (serieus aantal) weg deed en die er tussen stond. En is van dezelfde periode als de SR-71, U-2 en de X-15 die ik ook heb. En met wat ben je bezig? Ik aan de Fokker D.VII van Wingnuts (ligt een beetje stil) en de Me-163 van Dragon met CMK sets. Heb ondertussen nog een Me-109F-4 (Zvezda), FW-190F-8 en een Me-110D (Eduard) gekocht. En nu stop ik.
Ben van plan om een aantal modellen te verkopen. Dus kijk anders maar op mijn stash en als je er iets tussen ziet staan kan je het vragen. :)

This was the first kit I built when I started the hobby. Had built a couple things here and there previously, but this was the first.

I remember building a 58 too! way back, it had the opening cockpit hatches and the dropable weapons pod! still got it parked away! My first kit was the little Revell Spad lots of glue on that one!

Monogram, Wings, that's Augie!
When I was about 8 or 10 I played with a Hustler (not the magazine), which a cousin of mine had built. May be it was 1:72, may be 1_48, but to me that thing appeared to be huge!
Wish you luck, Augie, to get one!

I keep looking for an original issue from when the molds were new. Thanks for the tip about Megahobby. That's a better price than anywhere else.

Very sleek aircraft indeed. A supersonic bomber seemed like a good idea at the time, until they realized that the "area rule" would result in a fuselage cross-section so small there was no room for a bomb bay! Hence the large centerline weapons pod. When the mission switched to low altitude due to the SAM threat, it was no longer supersonic. But a beautiful aircraft nonetheless.

it's huge bird needs lots of paints time and glue :D

You will have fun with the gaps on the fuselage. Filling, sanding and re-scribing panel lines was tedious. Also leveling the canopy/pilot access hatches if you plan to display them closed... it took mesome effort to make them fit flush. Good luck!
