Fly By Jan
Thank you very much Spanjaard and JD! :)
I am currently in the process of modifying the engine cowling, however, my job is kinda hectic lately so its unfortunately holding me back with the model... I am expecting to resume soon enough though. :)

Slavo Hazucha
First the eye catches the beautiful front, then comes the rewarding view at the back... a bit rusty in this case, but that´s as it should be! ;) :D

Really good job on the R-2800

Roland Sachsenhofer
Beautiful work, precise and with sense for detail!

Beautiful job on that engine, it seems that Eduard's R2800 is far superior to the Aires one
24. August, 10:38
Soeren .
The engine looks fantastic!
24. August, 10:40
Fly By Jan
Thanks a lot Slavo, Roland, Hanno and Soeren. The engine is quite fun to put together but requires patience with the exhaust construction.

Nice, like those special colors/schemes. It's like this F-6F collided with a Bell X-1 :)
2. July, 20:14
Łukasz Gliński
What a cool livery
2. July, 20:43
Patrick Hagelstein
Thank you so much Mark and Łukasz! Being Dutch, orange always tickles my imagination. Although a difficult color to spray, it didn't come out that bad. This was just a practice build for an upcoming Eduard kit. Actually the one where the decals came from. More orange to follow! ;)
3. July, 02:05
Mark D
Also Dutch, planning to do the Orange Lion F-16 1/48.

Alec K
Cool camo indeed. Thanks for the report on the Tamiya lacquer paint
3. July, 11:47
Patrick Hagelstein
Perfect choice Mark! :)

Ergens in mijn to-do stapeltje staat die er ook nog bij.
3. July, 13:52
Patrick Hagelstein
You're welcome Alec! The Tamiya lacquer paint range sprays beautiful, it's the bright colors that were acting up, but I guess that's independent of paint manufacturer or type of paint. A modelclub member advised me to spray a yellow or buff base coat before the orange. I'll try that on my next orange project.
3. July, 13:54
Ben M
I love these drone F6F's. I recently airbrushed acrylic Tamiya orange over white primer and it came out very well as well.
3. July, 14:07
Patrick Hagelstein
Hi Ben! I primed the kit in Mr. Surfacer White, but had to sand out some blemishes and the underlying grey plastic showed through. Idiot me decided to go ahead anyway and those grey patches kept on showing through all the way. Even so, the orange had a very hard time turning orange from the initial orange-pink. Maybe I over thinned the orange. Either way: my learning curved took a steep climb. :D
3. July, 15:06
Alec K
Thanks for the additional info Patrick

High-quality kits from China that are more expensive than Hasegawa...interesting development!

I picked up the 1:72 Eduard Hellcat, and after comparing to a friend's Cyber Hobby kit, I like Big Ed better. I think they did a better job of capturing the overlapping rear edges of the fuselage panels, and they've limited the rivets to those that were on removeable panels.

Cyber's Hellcat is indeed quite nice, and you can build folding wings without any surgery. It builds up into a nice replica. But they screwed up both of their new Sea Vixen and the Sea Venom kits. Quite a few obvious mistakes. Plus, the Cyber Sea Venom is the same price as the CMR Sea Venom, which includes PE, masks, etc. and is far more accurate.
23. June 2012, 00:56
Burkhard D
Yep. What I meant is that more and more Chinese companies, like Cyberhobby, are no longer competing on price alone. They are aiming for high-end market margins. Of course, they are meeting stiff competition in quality here.
Would be interesting to know how scale modeling ranks as a hobby in China. Is there a sizeable domestic market providing them with economies of scale or is it rather an export-oriented business in China? Anyone around here from China?

I visit Hong Kong a couple of times each year for work. I always visit Continental Hobbies when I'm there. It's a great little model shop, great prices (about half of what I would pay in the US, regardless of brand), and it's always very crowded! From that shop, I can walk to several others. Scale Model Building is alive and well in Hong Kong for sure!

Thanks for these reviews guys.
Based on the fact Cyber Hobby has Folded Wings oob I will go with that one.
