  1. Past hour
  2. The photos are clear and precise, and show the area to great advantage. I wouldn't concern yourself Jim; I remember almost a decade ago the crap that particular Site allowed James Kelley to post about your review of the Zoukeu Mura Ta152 kit... it seems that unsubstantiated claims about kit quality and alegations of Contra deals with Kit suppliers is still par for the course over there; yet if you provide clear evidence of why the Hasegawa Bf109 kit is not 2mm short at the nose it gets you branded a trouble-maker. The wiring... I actually prefer to add my own. Much easier to paint and looks much better IMO. S

    Tamiya F4U-1D build

    Can't get enough of these Corsairs, specially when they look that great. The finish looks nice and supersmooth a clear winner. I have to get me a second one after building the Birdcage some years ago. I tried to convince me that one is enough, because I prefer the three tone camo, but when I see yours, I have do a late one with folded wings for a change. Cheers Rob
  8. Hi Harv, it makes things easier to assemble the HGW belts while the PE is still on the fret. It defiddles the whole process. A thing I learned through a very kind member in this place . Cheers Rob

    Tamiya F4U-1D build

    All done with this one. You just can't beat the Tamiya Corsairs for enjoyable builds. I had intended to build this one as a Navy bird (hence the folded wings) but changed my mind to do a Marine a/c at Okinawa. After market items are Barracudacast wheels and cockpit placards. Otherwise it's OOB. I used masks to paint the national insignia but other markings are decals. The GSB is Model Master Glossy Sea Blue enamel. I didn't to go overboard with weathering but I tried to do at least some (but not too much!). I hope y'all like it! Oops! I guess this should go in RFI. Will the mods please fix that? Thanks!
  11. After a little studying of some photos, I decided to thin the wall panels adjacent to the engineers console, and also scribe a line under the console to separate it from the surrounding plastic panels. Here's my work:
  12. Fantastic and will be following with great interest Peter
  13. Looks like a really nice kit!

    Here's one for Ernie.....

    Just a shame it always comes down to the last minute before something is done to save an aircraft or a piece of history, even it is just storage inside until money is raised for the restoration. Peter
