Robert W Martel Well,,, another reissue kit. This time it's an AMT re-box from 1995. Released by Italeri in 2016. It does have scribed panel lines,,, decent enough looking,,,, and a fresh decal sheet w/6 schemes.
Been wanting this one for some time!!
4. February 2017 at 07:35:40
Urban Gardini And way too little room for nose weight. I recomend tungsten putty for this one.
4. February 2017 at 17:44:13
Robert W Martel Thanks for the tip Urban, I hadn't heard of that stuff
4. February 2017 at 19:10:49
Urban Gardini Look for it in any well sorted sport fishing store!
5. February 2017 at 00:07:48
Robert W Martel Ah ah !! Thanks
5. February 2017 at 00:51:55
Robert W Martel Got this one today. Pretty nice kit for an old AMT/ERTL re-issue. Nice scribed panel lines, pretty nice detail, Super decal sheet w/6 options, nicely laid out instructions w/sprue layout, FS color chart. I'm impressed for an old mold kit.

Bill Gilman Thank you everyone for the nice comments. I really appreciate reading them. I think my next build will be the Gloster Meteor F.3 and then in April I start an F-111 group build on Britmodeller. I'm going to try and convert the Hasegawa F-111C/G into the USN F-111B prototype. That should be interesting, as it's more than just a nose-job. Cheers, Bill

Will you go for the box cover camo or rather the one from the project pic?
28. August 2015 at 09:42:07
Pierre-Christian Baudru Hi Lukasz, I don't know yet, but I was thinking about the project pic. I need to try to find more pics of this aircraft to be sure about the modifications I would have to do or not. Cheers.

Please note:-The colour of the plastic was intended to represent the overall colour of the aircraft. Instructions were given for those fussy enough to paint details like canopy frame,engine cylinders, propeller tips etc. Those were the days!

Long-term project. A perfectly reasonable F7F-1(small tail).Only I've got to add :- QB engines, Lone Star cockpit, 2 new props (QB or square-tipped Aeroclub. Just looked at it and I want 2x Hellcat wheels as well. Madness is nigh.

Peter Mollenhauer Nice choice, David! I built it a few months ago. Turns into a fine model, I recommend using the resin engines by Quickboost. That is really improving. Be generous with the nose weight, better still to put some into the engines, too. Have fun!
9. November 2013 at 10:35:17
David Haas If I were building her now, I would definitely use resin engines, but back when I did this project I had not yet begun to use resin after-market upgrades. The basics of this old kit though WERE very solid.

Bill Gilman Holger - I'm not sure what is in the Verlinden box. I bought that about 15 years ago, and it's been sitting on the bench all this time. I've forgotten about it. I will have a look and let you know! :)

Kelly Wellington Hey, Bill...I don't see any weights on that table.
*
I just finished assembling the wing units and dry fit them to the wingroots of the assembled fuselage......severe tail-sitting. Since I've already closed up the nose, I have only the engine nacelles and I don't think that even if I load them full with buckshot that it'll do the trick to make this craft sit right on its tricycle undercarriage.

Bill Gilman Don't worry about it, Kelly. The real Tigercats were so tail heavy that they would also rest on their tails if they weren't full of fuel, etc. Just model it that way. Good conversation starter. :)

Or you could weight the front down like this:

Kelly Wellington It's just that so many instructional films have inserted warnings about "now, don't try this at home, kids", so I thought I'd get that outta the way toot sweet.

I just ran through my Tigercat kit and finished assembling it. It is not yet painted, and I'm not sure i will paint it. I quit worrying about the taildragging when I realized that it looks just fine when it is teetering on the included 'stand'. But then, it won't be anywhere as near jiffy-snifty as your completed kit, even if I paint the 'stand' with chrome silver....

Do you intend to use those weights on your kit?

Bill Gilman Bought this for pure nostalgia. And who knows, maybe raised panel lines will come back in style!

(I bought a new scribing tool while I was at it!)
