  1. I am currently playing GI Joe in the woods with the US Army. To avoid boredom on my down time I am building a tank. Let's see how much I can accomplish.
  2. Nice cockpit. Can you show your technic for the painting of the dials? You've done a terrific job on it. I really enjoy those 1/32 Hasegawa models, they are easy to build and are well detailed also. I was doing a similar build a few weeks ago, unfortunately I had to stop because I became sick, then I started some military field training. I hope to resume soon.
  3. Thanks. It is definitely difficult due to interruptions, lighting and a voracious grass (tent floor) that eat a few pieces.
  4. Here some more pictures.
  5. I'll give it a try.
  6. Hmmm, I did not think of that, it may be a neat scheme. What I was thinking was a what if Luftwaffe airfield defense unit, painted with RLM colors, kind of a 1946 idea. Now you made me think about your sugestion, dark brown, brown, tan, dark green and olive drab.
  7. One thing to mention, there is not going to be any extra detailing or aftermarket stuff on this build. The purpose of this kit is simply for me not to be bored, therefore I will even paint it with any paint I want on a what if scheme.
  8. I already lost a little handle piece for the scape hatch, I did not eve look for it as it fell in the grass.
  9. Interesting, I bought two, the USAS and the Br.1 and both have that very same sprue bent.
  10. Jeroen, Quite impressive building skills you have. Your kit is a treat to the eye as imitates a nice representation of the original 88.
  11. Gents, I hope I'm still able to participate. As you may have noticed, most of the build pictures are located at the Work in progress and completed models forums.
  12. Hello, There were two Mks of -86s in the Luftwaffe, Mk 5 and 6. West Germany received 75 Mk 5s in 1957-1958. All were ex RCAF and were assigned to Waffenschule 10, training school to get pilots familiar with the type. About 225 Mk 6 were delivered to West Germany and some were modified or retrofitted with slated wings to improve slow airspeed maneuverability. All Luftwaffe's Sabres were painted in NATO fashion of RAF colors: Dark Green, Dark Sea Gray and Medium Sea Gray. The only difference is that the second batch of -86s had the upper colors more or less switched, Gray instead of green and vice versa. I hope this help.
  13. Nice job on the kit. Is it difficult to utilize the RB riveter? I have been wanting to try it but I am abut of a chicken hahaha.
  14. Still Day 5, I spend about three hours on the Tony today, but it was worth it.
  15. A little more than a week ago I finished a 1/32 HK Do335. It was a more or less nine month long deal mostly working on it. I wanted to build something quick and not OOB to see if I can do it. So far so good. Day 1, Monday:
  16. Thanks!
  17. Day 5, Saturday: More painting.
  18. Day 4, Wednesday: Not much done today, just painting the prop and yellow markings on wings. About 10-12 hours of work.
  19. I have just completed what was supposed to be a quick build but it took me nine months.
  20. Thanks Guys. The fact that this kit is one of the easiest I have ever worked on helps significantly. Also, I did not used all the PE parts of the eduard set, as I wanted to make it simple.
  21. Day 3, Saturday:
  22. Day 2, Tuesday:
  23. Gents, I truly appreciate your comments. Thank you.
