Christopher Mullins Started another one last night while I was waiting on parts from the Ki 43 to dry. This looks like a great detailed kit, lots of internal detail. This looks like a re release of an old Monogram kit, it is also stamped Monogram 1997 on some parts. Good year, when I graduated. This will be my last WWII US Navy build I think, even though I may someday get a better Corsair because the one I have so so undetailed, it looks like a one of the older models that were really meant to play with back in the day. Anyways, this has good enough detail to be u[p there with the Avenger. Too bad more companies dont do this type of work.

Christopher Mullins Been working on the flaps, there is a lot from the wing you have to take off to get em on, got one side prepped but its taking some time.

Vegard Øksenholt I've tried this kit before, and failed hard. Tool is from 1968. Looks like you can handle it though The Helldiver is a cool subject
12. July 2015 at 12:31:39
Roberto Rocat Hi Vegard. This kit can be turned in a show stopper (I was just looking at the stunning work our member Mike Grant did on his...) ... The real problem, for me, is all the filler and sanding required, again and again...I don't know if I'll finish it :#
Ciao!

Gareth Windsor I had this issue a few times until I found out I should be washing the kit on the sprue to remove the releasing agent. I get on quite well with Vallejo primer.
2. May 2016 at 20:10:07
David F Dave, duly noted; my apologies for lack of pictures. ;)
2. May 2016 at 23:45:25
David F Gareth, I pre-washed with liquid washing detergent and a soft toothbrush as you prescribe, but the plastic was quite unusual. It reminded me of the difference between Evergreen and Plastruct brand styrenes. Evergreen has a dull, dry finish while Plastruct is typically glossy and smooth. It was one of those deals where I should have trusted my first instincts, I should have used a product with a tougher bite from the start.
2. May 2016 at 23:59:08
Gareth Windsor Ah, I think I may have this problem with an old Revell F-4 Kit from the 70's I just bought

I'm just about finished this kit. If you look at my stash you will see a lot of old models. I'm one of those guys who got back into modelling after a long absence. I'm also one of those guys going down memory lane trying to apply my adult modelling skills to kits I did in my youth. This is one I would rather have skipped and done a modern version instead. The working features were fun when I was 10 and I didn't care about detail or gaps. Now those things are just an annoyance. It is turning out much better than the last time I built it but I'm jealous of guys who are picking up new releases and producing outstanding models. Same goes for the Monogram Avenger.

J M Maybe I'm not jealous but I am excited with the prospect of digging into one of those newer kits I've heard so much about.
14. April 2016 at 19:36:38
Germen V go on buy one, what are you waiting for. I if may make a suggestion, try out an Eduard Weekend-editions kit. They are relative cheap and full of detail, e.g. Mirage III or Mig-21, great kits, value for money.
14. April 2016 at 19:43:39
J M Ha, ha! I should. I've just been looking at people's stashes on here and my 16 kits doesn't even count as a stash!
14. April 2016 at 19:52:33
J M What would you recommend for a 1:72 Mig-29?
14. April 2016 at 19:54:46

Rex You'd need to tell people why this is a "wrong kit" in order for them to delete it from the database, this and the kit above are different box tops than all the other 1/48 Monogram kits.

Besides that, "Hasegawa-Monogram" kits were a perfectly legitimate series of kits back then, they released Monogram kits in Hasegawa-Monogram boxes before they released their own versions of some kits. (for example, the Hasegawa-Monogram F-4J and F-4C kits that were released just a few years before Hasegawa released the "modular F-4 Series" of Blue Box kits,,,,,,,,,leasing molds is a common deal in this hobby)

oh, and as I have been trying to get people to understand for the last 4 weeks, just because someone has never seen a kit doesn't mean it never existed as a release, and just because someone has a kit doesn't mean that specific boxing is supposed to replace every other boxing. Identifying the differences in "the same kit tooling in different releases" is what this site is all about, that is why there are timelines in the first place

Glenn . There's many different boxings and releases floating around in various parts of the world, I've been collecting kits for over 30 years and see things i've never seen before turn up at swap n sells and on the worldwide garage sale... Ebay all the time. Some items may get re-released after 10 or 20 years with little change. Or some like Hasegawa's "limited edition" aircraft get a new box and decal options nearly every year. That is what makes this hobby interesting, I'm always on the lookout for something rare to add to the collection. I blame the internet now for not having time to make everything in my collection. I wish people would only add or make changes if you can identify something 100% but if things appear to be doubles "tag" the item and let scalemates check. :)

Again :Does anyone have a boxing of this that I could get a copy of the Instructions? I have an instruction sheet, but the boxing I have is from Japan and did not include English Instructions!

Clifford Keesler I have the big compressor also, use it for my air tools and painting cars/trucks ze. Am in the process of repainting my 95 Dodge Ram pickup.full si
18. June 2014 at 17:12:20
Clifford Keesler Wish I knew something about building Armor have never built a tank before only planes cars and ships and spacecraft. I once built a model of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701 and installed fiber optic lights and painted the whole Aztec pattern by hand one panel at a time. That was like in 1984-85
18. June 2014 at 17:36:12
Alan Rush Why don't you take the plunge and join the Light Tank Groupbuild? Maybe you'll get hooked! I built my own Enterprise a couple of years ago and should post in an album. Did not feel confident enough to take on the wiring for the lights. Do you still have yours? Should post it if you do.
18. June 2014 at 17:50:45
Nikolajs Negeriss Hi Alan! Very good result for the first plane! As other said, interior is perfect! And remember my first experience with can - had to sand a lot ;) later I learned that I should do quick and short motions with can to get right result... Also I actually found a way how to fix orange peal. I sand it with 1200-2500 grit sand paper and apply Future with wide brush. Another way is to sand, polish and can also apply wax for high gloss.
I like your approach and attitude - great way to learn new things, and I hope to see another plane model from you some day ;) Keep up good work, Alan!
18. June 2014 at 18:32:04
Alan Rush Thanks Nikolajs. I have more aircraft on the shelf to build. When I looked at your albums in clicked that you had posted your Mig 37 before. That was a great job of painting and finishing.
18. June 2014 at 18:50:19
Clifford Keesler Alan if you are looking for a Cheap but good airbrush TCP Global makes a dual action airbrush it is called the G-25. It works very nice and is easy to maintain and clean. I think Hunter Cummings has the same airbrush. I only paid 25.00Usd for mine.
18. June 2014 at 23:55:44
Choppa Nutta now thats good to know, the G-25 by TCP Global !
hope you might post a link of that on my Airbrush review thread for the others to see :)
19. June 2014 at 00:13:19
Nikolajs Negeriss Thank you, Alan, nice to see people get some inspiration from your job ;)
In regards to airbrush, I may try to guide you, if you wish - have tried more then 10 guns so far
Clifford, I had a look at G25 on the web. It has 0.2 nozzle. Which kind of paint have you been using so far and what is min and max diameter of pattern you can get from that?

Phil Marchese Thanks. Airfix straight up, rivets and all. I have a few 3 blade M-box I want to do one as AAF WASP tow tug or AAFAC sub patrol; the other as early. USN CV complement. Would like to a picture of USMC A-25 however decades of search have provided little to define those.

Have decided to leave the product number as-is, because that's what's on the box - The Australian Decals have been added somewhere along the supply chain, but before the retailer.
Hope that's in keeping with ScaleMates' standards!!.
Love your product, Scalemates!

5. February 2014 at 12:16:06
Adam Carter I saw this in the mag and couldn't quite believe how much work had gone into bringing it up to scratch. May one be so bold as to ask how you got into doing these builds for the magazine? I have often wondered how it works.
5. February 2014 at 12:39:21
JOHN THOMAS Very nice
5. February 2014 at 14:29:06
Alan Rush Hi Mike. The model looks great. I am attempting the Academy 1/72 SB2C-4 for the Naval Aviation Groupbuild. It is really my first aircraft and quite slow going. Your pictures really offer something to aim for but I will be happy to successfully complete it. Maybe after years of experience I can produce one like yours. Congratulations.
