  1. Great pictures, Rob, and certainly helpfull with the HPH Cat!!
  2. Hope to be able to visit the convention, i think i will, but without models of my own, the ones i showed are pretty old and i didn't built in a long time, so i'm trying to get into the game again in LSP with a "jurasic Group build". So, see you in Putte. groeten, Jack.
  3. Thanks Cees, the Bronco was started a whole lot of years ago by LSP Lee White from Long island as a vacform project, and i received the basic parts and finished it. The Mohawk on the other hand is scratchbuilt, but i would do that one different today, still waiting for a IM kit Jack.
  4. Ben, super great work, that recce crusader is looking awesome!!! Ofcourse the Prowler is top notch too, you're taking both to the Putte show? cheers, Jack.
  5. Hi everybody, came upon this thread, and being a rookie with LSM, i should indeed present some of my models. Now some of you who know me from LSP, witnessed my very slow building pace, but this picture is covering several 1/32 models, of which the Tigercat (or was it the Kingfisher?) was the last one i completed more or less in 2010/11. Oh, and still have to finish the Lightning nightfighter....go figure: Jack.
  6. Had planned going there, car broke down at the last moment, so "no show"....... Any of you guys take some pictures to share with us ?? would be nice, Jack.
  7. Hmmmm, i saw a scratchbuilt 1/32 Mariner somewhere on the net years ago, and it was very apealing, very.......
  8. hahaah, you're a poet Cees, a real poet.....
  9. Hi Cees, I never saw Tigger's vacforms, i have quite some old ones from Doug Feeney, but i wouldn't know what his vac Firefly is like, but i guess the PMC release is equal to the ID originals probably, just your average basic vacform parts, but the resin detailing kit (which wasn't sold together with the PMC kit, you'd have to pay for them seperately) is another story. And come to think of it, i don't think these parts are resin at all, just "crude/raw" IM plastic parts in a blackish coulor.(haven't looked into them recently) They remind me of the IM detailing parts that were once included in Combat models F7F Tigercat, very basic, lots of sanding corrections to do, but it is possible to bring it out into an acceptable model. BTW, PMC's second kit (beside a hint to a skyraider IIRC) was a Dehavilland SeaVixen (have that one too) I'll try an take some pictures, to show you. Jack.
  10. Guys, i have several fisher kits, and their quality is excellent, and even for a novice in resin pretty good buildable, so i have all confidence in this (indeed MLD!!!) Firefly. And Cees, there is (was) another 1/32 Fairey Firefly FR1, made by the now extinct PMC, Panther Model Club. It's a vacform as far as fuselage and wings are concerned (also clear parts), but it has a complete resin interior, and gear stuff including wheels etc. I managed to pick one up right before they stopped business...... cheers, Jack.
  11. Absolutely a "catching" finish, very realistic, looking great. Jack.
  12. Danny, impressive work on the cockpit tub and details, have the kit as well, but i think i wouldn't go through all the changes, though seeing your effort makes me wonder why not??.... greetz Jack
  13. Cees, good to see a dutch version in the progress, i'm going to follow this one closely since this is one of my "future" projects myself, and i'm anxious to see what will become of yours. good luck and have fun, Jack.
  14. Yep, i'd be happy..... Now...where's that C47 in 35scale??
  15. very nice build, impressive, anxious to see the end result. J.
