  1. Top Gun 2 will only feature Super Hornets....
  2. Sd.Kfz 231

    If the inside face of the hatch is visible when opened it would have been painted in the outside camouflage colour. Museum exhibits often show opened hatches in the inside colours but those exhibits are most often partially or fully repainted since WW2.
  3. Focke-Wulf Fw 189A-1 in Slovakian markings

    Great project, Jim! Looking very good.
  4. Revell Spitfire IX in 322 Sqn markings

    Ah, OK! Je comprend!
  5. Revell Spitfire IX in 322 Sqn markings

    Nice, Cees! Didn't 322 fly Mk.XVI's (e-wing) with that scheme?
  6. 1/6 Dragon M4A3 4th Armored

    Holy cow!! That is amazing work!! Thanks for sharing!
  7. Soo.... What did you just get???

    I couldn't control my urges at the local hobby shop today...
  8. Welcome to the Resin Group Build! Rules and stuff.....

    Okay, thanks!
  9. Welcome to the Resin Group Build! Rules and stuff.....

    Mike, to ask maybe the stupidest of stupid questions: Does "armor and aircraft of any sort" mean that any scale goes, too? Or do you want it limited to Large Scale?
  10. Welcome to the revamped LSM

    It's friggin' AWESOME!! Great work, guys!!!!
  11. Fine review Jim! Could you possibly post the instructions for the different schemes, too, please? I'm always interested to see how the kivschemes would look when built... Cheers, Erik
  12. I'll take part with a Meteor F.4 from the (then) Dutch Air Forces, as they were still part of the Royal Army at that time. The Air Force only became the Royal (Netherlands') Air Force in 1953.... In any case, the Dutch Meteors weren't the most colorful variants to ever see the skies, but hey... There aren't many photos of the F.4 around on the internet either, so you have to make do with some early ones, BEFORE the introduction of squadron and base-colors. www.strijdbewijs.nl www.gahetna.nl / fotocollectie Anefo, J.D. Noske The second photo is from September 28th, 1949, showing a Meteor that made a crash-landing near the fishing town of Volendam, showing the squadron code "3P", meaning it was from 324 Sqn. The trigger to start the kit was a scale modeling day, organized by the Aviodrome Aircraft Museum on Lelystad Airport on June 20th. http://www.aviodrome.nl/dagje-uit-aviodrome?gclid=CjwKEAjwwZmsBRDOh7C6rKO8zkcSJABCusnbJ2GHPWa1iPn7Qk2rK6rPNFwMpY9N3MDpD_AI33QnFhoCtLTw_wcB The first thing to keep in mind is that the sprue attachments are on the contact surfaces of the fuselage halves and have to be carefully removed. If that is don, it's advisable to treat both contact surfaces to a little sanding with a sanding stick as there are some slight irregularities around the aligning pin holes, as you can see. To be continued.
  13. I decided to move this WIP from the HK Group Build to the Competition. The kit hasn't been worked on since June 2015....
  14. I shall visit both, Flying legends on Saturday and the RIAT on Sunday. How about you lot? Cheers, Erik.
  15. 1/32 Tempest Mk.V “HI-TECH”

    Well, I've got the kit and what a difference to the PCM it is! Wow! What I find a bit curious is that the name for "Le Grand Charles" seems t be missing from the decals?
  16. I thought that 1 or 2 years ago it had a 4-blade prop?
  17. PCM Hawker Tempest V

    All depends on the time frame. From the top of my head, in Sept. 44, the stripes were ordered off the wings and the top and sides of the fuselage.
  18. PCM Hawker Tempest V

    Ey Cees, do you remember growling about the lack of replies early on in the build? Sometimes a WIP has value as documentation too. I just revisited to see how you did a couple of things as I'm preparing for the SH Tempest I have lying in front of me!
  19. Special Hobby Tempest Mk.V

    I know.... I regret I had to pay for our lodging before the referendum....
  20. Took loads of pics, Jack, but they need some post-treatment. Since I'm still in the UK, I can't do that right now. The online photos I saw of Flying Legends show that the weather was better on the Sunday than on Saturday when I was there.... Ah, well.......
  21. Special Hobby Tempest Mk.V

    That's why I bought it in the UK! Never experienced before that kits were cheaper in Britain than on the mainland!
  22. Special Hobby Tempest Mk.V

    More, more, MORE!!!!
  23. Hawker Tempest Mk.V JN751

    Good advice on the wheel wells, Jim! I'm wondering, would it be best to mate each nose piece to each fuselage half prior to mating the fuselage halfs together? That sort of thing usually helps me with multi-piece fuselages by Hasegawa and the likes... I scooped this kit up at Duxford during Flying Legends at the Hannants stand. Couldn't leave it, really, as it was €15 cheaper than at the Aviation Megastore! So now I'm looking at the box-art for over a week while on holiday in the Cotswolds! Maybe I should commence with cleaning up some parts already, eh? As always, I've got my basic tools with me...... Keep up the good work, I'm interesting how this will turn out!
  24. BiG MiG

    Wow, looks very attractive!
