  1. Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8/R11

    Who knows with the "Old Man"? His obsession seems to be 1/48th scale Phantoms at the moment. But it wouldn't be because this is the ultimate '190; as I said it's a solid kit but still plenty of room for improvement. And the price point in Japan is about what it is here, around the £45-50 mark... It's a lot more affordable in the Western Hemisphere, especially if you're adding the aftermarket. Kit still not on the shelves here in Aus. Should arrive 'round about the time this issue of TMMI does! S
  2. Focke-Wulf Fw 190A-8/R11

    Great quality work as usual Jim. It's a solid kit without the aftermarket, but the Eduard resin sets add just that little bit extra. Any problems getting the cowl pieces alligned? S
  3. Moving....

    Well there was a lot of work for you and Mariel to get there, but it's all fallen into place and you're nearly home now. Good luck for the final stages, hope the "Girls" aren't too long in Quarantine, and remember not to store your decals in that hot SoCal garage! Cheers Buddy, S
  4. New tool Hasegawa 1/32 A6M5c

    Yes, as this is the aircraft in the photo that's what I would expect. After having a good look online over the weekend, I have been struggling to find wartime examples with noticable Hinomaru overpaints on A6M5's. S
  5. New tool Hasegawa 1/32 A6M5c

    I'm not sure the green Hinomaru border overpaint was much darker than the standard upper camouflage colour, if at all... Possibly only the result of applying two coats in order to cover the underlying white. Deep Green-Black upper colour for late Zeroes was FS34052 for Mitsubishi-built airframes, and FS34077 for Nakajima (IIRC the new Hasegawa kit options are both Nakajimas.) As the Mitsu colour is slightly darker of the two, I would use this as the border colour, or simply add a few drops of gloss to 34077 to differentiate. S

    Cracking paintwork and weathering Peter. Keep us posted as to publication details... S

  8. P-47 Thunderbolt " Dottie Mae"

    Great start Frank, And props to you for working a kit that others might consider a Collector's piece, and tuck straight away into the Attic. S
  9. And another... Forum will only allow to start a new topic in selected sections. WIP section will, but General Discussion is blocked. S
  10. And here in Au as well... This is what I get when I try to view, let alone edit my own profile. S
  11. Soo.... What did you just get???

    Picked up a few odds and ends to add on to my Hasegawa Fw190 in the Resin Group Build... S
  12. Scratchbuilders 32nd aircraft

    Yes they are rare Ian... The Defiant moreso. There is an Me410 on the market now from HPH, that apparently is an easier build and more readily available. You may find someone willing to part with their Scratchbuilders '410 due to this, but be aware... there were 2 Scratchbuilders versions; the second one being updated and much more accurate in its detail than the initial offering. HTH, S
  13. 3D Printing Anyone doing their own?

    Not yet Douglas... There's a great difference between the resources at the disposal of a Manufacturing Company, and that of the average Modeller. Anything around the price range that I would find reasonable for such a set-up, is still producing objects that require excessive clean-up. So not for me yet, I'm sorry. S
  14. Soo.... What did you just get???

    And also the Hanomag... The stand-alone kit looks great as an option in Luftwaffe diorama.
