  1. Level of detail is just superb for injection molding!
  2. Looking forward to this one, usually not a fan of "WHIFS" but have a couple of ideas for this one that would really look cool.
  3. Jimbo I think inadvertently deleted one your posts when trying to clean up Steve's duplicates. Doh!
  4. Any LSMers planning on attending? I'll be staying at the Hyatt across the street from the convention center.
  5. Way back when SPAR was still up someone did a review of a resin replacement belly panel for the Hasegawa 1/32 190A-5 (The one just aft of the wing). The Hasegawa kit comes with the panel that was introduced later in the A-7. Anyone remember who it was and if they're still in business? Also what about smooth panels for the MG FF delete on the outboard wings? Or did they just leave the panels in the with the bulge for the ammo drum?

    Kudos on the perseverance, Rob! Turned out great!

    Got some work done on the cockpits, the detail is rather simplified so didn't go real overboard, some Airscale LW placards on the sidewalls was about it. The seatbelts are HGW and Eduard, can't finish fully installing them until the cockpits goes in and the fuselage halves are joined.

    Damn! That looks absolutely amazing!

    Tail squiggles? Like so?

    I'm going to keep the cockpits relatively simple, just a couple of add ons before the RLM 66 goes on.

    Next is taking care of the wheel wells which are basically just gaping holes in the lower wing. I was able to salvage the nicely detailed strut bays from the trashed Revell kits and graft them in with the aid of some Tamiya Light Curing Putty. The upper portion of the wheel wells has been spruced up with some plastic stock. I'll fabricate the inner canvas liners from some lead foil later down the road. I've also cut off the landing and radiator flaps so they can posed deployed with replacement parts.

    So first order of business is getting the fuselage sorted out. All extraneous panels have been filled in and missing details have been scribed. The solid fresh air scoops on the cowl have removed and will be replaced with resin parts.
