  1. Spectacular. Beautiful work complimented by photography to match.
  2. Hi Cees, no progress just yet, hoping to get back into it very soon Tim
  3. Hi Clark, not much progress due to an international relocation.. still yet to setup my workbench. Next step is rescribing and rivetting.. i have the tools but am fairly new to it.. I'll need a dummy run on something else cheers, Tim
  4. Excellent build again Mike, I remember a red legged jg300 g-14 (?) you did a while back and i think this one is even better. And for me +1 for the hasegawa kit! Tim
  5. Great work so far. Assembled undercarriage is looking very nice indeed. Tim
  6. Great work Brad. Interesting scheme.. I wonder if it is still in service Base is fantastic. tim
  7. I agree with Cees.. cockpit is looking great. Tim
  8. Superb work Rick. Nice touches on the bombs.. I gotta get my bomb building that good!
  9. Thanks all. Progress check - with Mr Surfacer 1200 coat - in order to check for gaps. Slow progress on the nose - using CA glue as filler, the gaps are now mostly filled but not yet completely removed. Very much a work in progress. The Hasegawa upper cowling will need to be blended in further also. The visible gaps above will be filled and when all looks good I’ll be on to the scribing/riveting. Thanks for checking in. Tim
  10. Excellent.. I'll be watching. Great idea with the naked scheme. Now that would look good.
  11. Thanks! That's a great scheme (both alternatives) - I will consider it.. I'm yet to chose the scheme. Too many options to chose from. Either Mediterranean or Pacific options - I'll decide once the 'plastic surgery' is complete. Back to the construction work, the wings and fuselage are assembled and ready for the nose job. I've cut and attached part of the Tamiya lower cowling in readiness. Pics below: The Hasegawa nose was glued using CA glue. I did a sloppy job in removing the Hasegawa nose - you can see the very poor join at the wing root but it is 'fixable'. The Quickboost fishtail exhausts (for Hasegawa not Hobbybosss) arrived in the mail - these look great: The fit was pretty good - the biggest issue was the join of the upper cowling to the fuel tank cover - you can see the different curvature of Hasegawa and Tamiya parts. Some minor reshaping will be necessary. I've also need to thin the Hasegawa nose slightly at the wing root join. Here's the starboard view, and, in a childhood flashback - an ugly glue fingerprint!! Underside fit is not too bad at all - the trop filter fits very nicely indeed - again, the wing root join needs work (due to my dodgy cutting) All comments, criticism is welcome. Next is lots of filling, sanding, etc. Thanks for watching. Tim
  12. Super neat. Very sharp. Gotta be happy with that. About the HSS.. I'm not sure.. maybe as simple as Tamiya X-19 smoke over the top !? Or even Mr Color silver (8) ?? I've seen that on a similar build, with good result. Tim.
  13. Very sharp detail Laurent. So much detail to study in those pics. Thanks for sharing.
  14. I'll calling the cockpit done for now.. here it is, ready for the fuselage to be buttoned up. Thanks for watching..! Tim
