Markus Kutsch The Plastic Bench If this Story that Gill told would happen to my daughter (she is 19 Months),it would not suprise me.(Of course my daughter does it in a diaper,not in our Garden)
28. April 2012 at 05:59:04
Markus Kutsch The Plastic Bench I am glad that the story had that Lucky (stinky) end for your dog.
It could had been worse and ending with a Veterinary visit.
28. April 2012 at 14:06:30
Bill Gilman A dog's digestive must be incredibly robust. They eat crazy stuff. One of my dog's favourite food groups when she was a puppy was plastic (bad news for a modeller!) She has also injested aluminum foil, which also passed through without any effect. Now that she's older and not a puppy anymore, she is much better at just eating her dog food!

Charles Villanueva Finally uploaded most of the images for this project. A move delayed the postings of this WIP. Lost some progress images along the way. Most of the postings will show the Vigilante towards the final stages. Already painted and decalled for the most part. Really not a difficult kit, but a lot of parts compared to the Revell and Hasegawa kits in this scale.

Charles Villanueva Aeromaster Acrylic Lt Gull Grey 36440, Xtracrylic Gloss White was used for the scheme. Detail painting with Model Master silver, black, OD and steel for the various bits and pieces. Paasche "H" airbrush to apply the paint. Alclad for the bare metal sections. Thanks for viewing.

Kerry COX You can tell where the F-15 Eagle got it's heritage from Ed.
11. July 2015 at 02:24:20
Flynn I did a Kangnam Vigilante in the past. I guess that one was reverse engineered from this Hasegawa kit. Good work on it! Pity that your decal cracked.
21. July 2015 at 08:46:03
Ed Hubbart Not to worry. Have another one enroute from a friend who is building the kit with custom decals for his uncle's plane.

Roman Gmünder Ran into problems making my own decals (first time). Used the HOLI Decalpaper (both white and clear) and my HP inkjet with HP ink and microscales liquid decal film. There appeard a redish "glow arround the black lines (no matter on white or clear decal film) after adding quite an amount of micro sol when applying the decals (since the decal film is rather thick). Now what was my mistake you suppose? Wrong ink, too thin coat of liquid decal film or excessive amount of microsol? Thanks for your help. Regards.
16. September 2013 at 19:40:05
Roman Gmünder Finished the bird with the wings folded and the size is still impressive. As mentioned i made first experience with making my own decals. I like the sleek lines of this jet. And am amazed there aren't more being on display.

Christian Mundt Your Vigilante looks great, congratulations! Could you please give some information about the internal brace from Nautilus, is it worth buying?
11. May 2014 at 18:02:52
Augie very nice, I would be interested in hearing about the brace too
11. May 2014 at 18:08:02
Roman Gmünder Thanks. I think the brace is not a must. I stumbled over it when i was looking for their carrierdeck which i think its great and since i heard that you had to brace the huge body of this plane i thougt it would come handy and it did. It is designed for the aires burner cans which i wasn't able to get. So i had to modify the kit cans, which was easy to do, though. If you have specific questions feel free to ask. So long.

27. April 2012 at 07:32:27
Charles Villanueva After a few months hiatus, time to update the Viggie. This session I assemble the LH side intake. Using Floquil Reefer White to paint the interior and spot the fuselage where the intake would cover it when installed. It would be hard get paint into that area if I don't. Also masked around the tailcone prior to painting that section which will be Steel. More to follow as I'm motivated to get this moving again. Thanks for looking.

Burkhard D Ich glaube, die Neigung des Sitzes ist etwas zu groß. In der Seitenansicht ist normalerweise etwa der halbe Headrest in der Cockpithaube zu sehen?
18. November 2012 at 13:27:19
FlyingCircus Den Sitz werde ich noch ein wenig weiter vorne montieren. Der ist wirklich zu weit hinten.
18. November 2012 at 14:50:31
FlyingCircus Nach längerer Zeit ging es ein wenig weiter. Da die Triebwerksdüsen traurig leer aussahen, habe ich diese frei schnauze optisch aufgepeppt. Bei schlachten eines alten Weckers sind 2 Stellräder übrig geblieben welche ich eingeklebt habe. Da die Vigilante ein wellenförmiges Düsen Innenprofil hat, habe ich mit Evergreen Streifen versucht eine grobe Anmutung zu schaffen. Eine weitergehende genauere Detailierung lohnt sich bei dem Bausatz nicht wirklich.
4. January 2013 at 09:46:43
FlyingCircus Das letzte Foto zeigt den jetzigen Zustand. Der Bereich um den Fanghaken ist eingebaut und verspachtelt. Der Aufklärungsbehälter ist montiert und verdeckt zum Glück die Klebenaht. Das abgebrochene Höhenrüder ist durch eine eingebaute Verstiftung wieder montagefertig und im Cockpit sind die Gewichte eingebaut.
4. January 2013 at 09:56:27
Burkhard D Sieht doch schon mal ganz nett aus...eine hüsche Lackierung und nette Decals werden sicher einen hübschen Vogel daraus machen! Ich schrokel nebenbei an der RA-5C von Airfix herum, ist eine ähnliche Herausforderung :)

4. January 2013 at 16:19:33
FlyingCircus So nun ist es passiert, der Cockpitbereich ist wieder montiert. Da mir das Teil für die Instrumententafel fehlte habe ich mit Hilfe des Bausatzdecal ein neues gebaut und montiert. Die Seitenkonsolen habe ich mit Decals der Revell F-89 aufgepeppt. Nun bleibt noch einiges an Spachtel und Schleif Arbeit

3. June 2012 at 16:53:24
Bill Gilman I've always wondered how much the design of the MiG 25 was influenced by the Vigilante. The original design for the A-5 (then the A3J) had twin vertical tails. The Vigilante first flew in 1958, the MiG 25 in 1964.

Bill Gilman How does this compare to the old Revell (which you've marked for sale) and the Trumpeter kits?
6. September 2012 at 11:55:15
Lukas . Kangnam is a same kit as Revell from late eighties. Basic kit with engraved panel lines. Trumpeter is much better ...but more expensive.
6. September 2012 at 13:13:03
Bill Gilman OK, that is what I expected, this is the old Ace kit. I have the Trumpy kit, and I was wondering if there might be something better.

The Vigilante has always been one of my favorites. Few realize how advanced of a design this was, and how it influenced future designs on both sides of the cold war.
6. September 2012 at 13:51:02
Dave Flitton Do you not like the Trumpeter kit?
6. September 2012 at 16:09:29
Bill Gilman Well, it's covered with rivets that need to be filled, the fin is the wrong shape for an RA-5, and the dorsal "hump" is too shallow. It's a later series Vigilante (although it has the early ECM pod on the tail), and can't be modeled as an earlier version, nor as an A-5 (different intakes and no leading edge extensions). The kit has bombs (almost never carried on an RA-5) but no drop tanks (almost always carried by an RA-5).

Maybe that's asking too much - the only real issue is all of those rivets! The Trumpy F-105 is the same way. C'mon guys - these airframes are smooth!
6. September 2012 at 16:36:04
Dave Flitton I would love to do an accurate RA-5, looks like I wil have to buy both kits and smash them together.
6. September 2012 at 16:54:11
Bill Gilman The Trumpeter kit is very nicely molded, better than any other available kit. The rivets can be filled, the vertical fin needs to have material removed from its tip (slanted not straight) and the ECM pod needs to be smaller. These are all easy fixes. The dorsal hump is a different matter. I plan on leaving it alone as it is unlikely to be noticed by anyone. Except for you guys who will now be looking for it! :) :) :)

Juan M Leria This 'Ace' company it's not the Ukranian but Korean. Maybe is this tooling the origin for the Revell and Kangnam ones? It would be interesting to see a pic of the sprues.
4. July 2012 at 22:32:24
Bill Gilman The Revell Vigilante kit box said "Made in Korea" and I've read that it was made by Ace, along with the Yak-38 Froger, and Su-25 Frogfoot 1:72 kits.
5. July 2012 at 00:43:00
Dave Fassett Yeah this is the Korean company. I picked this kit up back in the 80's when it first came out. I started it in the 90's and plan to finish it this year. It is a good kit, simple, but good.
