  1. Making some progress. The seat, guns and IP are from the KH kit. The seat belts are Fine Molds. I replaced the control stick with one from my spares stash. Remember to click on the photos for best resolution.
  2. Thanks Rob. I think it looks a lot better in it's new scheme.
  3. The new canopy and exhaust parts from Aerocraft Models arrived today. Really nice stuff which will enhance the model no end. But, right now, I'm working on the SH P-39 so the P-51B will have to wait a bit.
  4. Thanks Gaz. I think it looks a lot better in this scheme.
  5. LOL Phil! The SH kit does have some shortcomings but it's still better than the KH kit.
  6. I've decided to build another one of the SH P-39's. The 1st step is to cut the fuselage where the "plug" will go. Then it's on to the build. I'm a little undecided as to which a/c it will be but I'd like to do Shomos' Snook's 2nd. I had the decals at one time but can't find them now so if any of you have 'em and don't plan to use 'em I'd sure like to get 'em.
  7. Here are a couple of my German helmets that were dug up in Latvia. I have three. Sure would like to know the story behind them.
  8. Agreed Ernie. The F-84 had lots of attractive schemes but it seems kit and decal folks concentrate on the Korean war markings. Thats understandable but it's nice to do something a bit different. I chose to do schemes that were out of the "usual" for both my '84's. I had some custom masks made for my "G" using the Tamiya 1/48 scheme as a guide.
  9. Thanks Dennis. I agree. A re-do can make a older build look better for sure. And it's easier than building a whole new kit.
  10. Thanks Ernie. I doubt it was a new a/c. I just decided not to dirty it up other than the exhausts stains.
  11. Thanks Peter. I think the patches look just fine. Shows some "use"!
  12. I like this scheme a bit more than the old one but, somehow, I'm just not turned on my it. Go figure. Just one of those things. Still, I do like it's looks with all the red bullet hole patches! Remember to click on the images for best resolution. 😉
  13. Finished. Check completed works.
  14. Those are some good guns to have Scott. It took me a good while to finally snag a Luger but I did finally get one a couple of years ago.
  15. Hi Paul, I use a old Paasche H airbrush I've had for over 20 years or more. The nozzle # has rubbed off over the rears but all their nozzles are adjustable. The H brushes are sort of the "standard" brush but they also have a "F" which is a bit smaller and is for very fine work. However, I hardly ever use it and I get the wanted results from my "H". I don't know how much help this is but there it is. Good luck!!! John
  16. Thanks Peter. Coming along with the decals although I had to replace the serial numbers with some from my stash. The Techmod numbers were a bit over size. Not a big deal though.
  17. Making good progress. Decaling should be completed soon then it'll need overspraying with clear flat.
