    OK, I have a set of the Academy CFT’s and the tail part you need. I’ll pull them out of the stash tomorrow and see how they sit on the Tamiya kit. I’ll send post some pics up here. If it works, I still have your address.

    Harv, have you bought the Tamiya kit yet? If not, Academy comes with both engines, both intakes and I’m betting the CFT’s will fit on the Academy kit better, since they were made for the Academy kit.
  8. Nice one. The Videoaviation stuff is excellent but watch the decals, they are sooo delicate.
  9. Yesterday
  10. Got the nose cone test fit and got a bit of painting on the cockpit. Lesson learned on measuring 5 times before cutting plastic to add resin. That's why the evergreen strip is on the nose! That'll be it for about 2 weeks. I hope to accomplish quite a bit on my days off in Feburary.
  11. Hey guys I've done some more work on the gooseneck of the drop nose RGN trailer. I have the power pack done and painted. this view shows the complete power pack. It's kind of hard to see the hydraulic lines because they are black and so is the power pack. The line to the right is the feed line to the tank, if you use the tractor hydraulic system, the pump and motor are to the left. this view shows the Honda 13hp engine and the hydraulic pump. The two silver lines/fittings are the feeds for the main hydraulic cylinders. You can also see the exhaust pipe I added to the engine.
  12. My Christmas gift from Recon Mike !!! THANKS Buddy !!!!
  13. Hi Rob... I had to look, because I'd forgotten. I did canvas covered aluminum. But all of my Albatrosen and Pfalz have leather. I was never really happy with it. Tried to make it look scuffed and dirty as I imagined the pilot would have stepped on it every time he got in and out of the plane. And no cushion... because I believed that a late-war pilot would have had a parachute to sit on.
  14. Thanks Alan. Its a good kit, no big probs. Hope you do a WIP....harv
  15. Loving this build Harv. I have an A5 to build but i'll be doing Black 7 from 5./JG54. So i'm gleaning all the info i can from your build
  16. Nice idea on the cowling flaps. I may have to do the same. I have some pics of VR-A when she was getting her engines serviced but oddly enough, missed the gear.
  17. Thanks folks! I started on the landing gear. I forgot I'd bought some brass outriggers from Aerocraft so those were primed first. Oops, forgot the second pic.

    Ok, after a lot of confusion over the intake, I spent the morning on the net. Everything I have read about POLISH F16s states they were equipped with P&W 229 ENGINES. This means they had small mouth intakes. Sprue Br. Has both intake and exhaust in stock. I will be ordering them. The Tamiya kit is GE engine and large mouth intakes and different exhaust.still looking for the conformal fuel tanks and extendedpara pack...harv
  19. I know I said I was moving away from enamels but the AK range is so damn good, just dislike the smell of enamel thinners when cleaning the airbrush. I’m going to have a go at NMF with them for the 51........
  20. Really coming to life now Cees...Amazing how decals bring a whole new dimension to the model. Beautiful!
  21. Not much being done today. Fitted the divebrakes and all parts that had fallen off. Next step, the cockpit.
  22. Thanks Phil, can't wait to make the next one on a Fokker D.VII, but next time with another cushion colour. After the Hansa Brandenburg, it's the second green one. Time for a maroon or dark red pillow. Like you, I absolutely love the AK metals. They spray perfect, have a fine grain and they are durable, that's the most important advantage over Alclads, where some collours were impossible to mask over. The waxes are great too, very versatile stuff. Cheers Rob
  23. Thanks Phil. I'll overspray the upper wings with clear gloss before adding the roundels. I prefer to attach decals over a gloss finish to minimize silvering. After all the decals are on I'll spray it with a clear flat then do some exhaust stains and weathering.
  24. Thank you! I built the 1st release many years ago, so this will be #2.
