thread when it took a FLAK-KAT hit and put me back and I started a couple of small "Classic Plastic"

Navy Douglas D-558-2 Skyrocket on stands.

IMAG0018.jpgIMAG0016.jpgIMAG0017.jpgIMAG0021.jpgIMAG0024.jpg  Worked the pilot with the Tamiya head (helmet visor modified) and body (legs straightened) with Master Details WW2 Cold Weather Pilot Arms. 

 

 Started to make life vest with lead tape and rolled milliput white for the collar

 

 Cockpit dry-brushed Gunship Gray and prism white pencil and future drops for lenses.  I have 15 things I wanna do to this cockpit

 

 But I put it another room so I won't "Improve" it.

 

 Sorry for some of the photos  still trying to figure out camera

 

No photos of seat yet camera battery is RIP

Upon further review......I must confess that when you build an American Model  of a British Jet with a Japanese version of an American 

 

F-15 pilot with American Resin WW2 arms....................Something gets lost in the translation..............Pilot to wide at the shoulder and have to finish

 

him and mount the seat ................and then close the fuselage.........So far minimum of problems, but see some in the making...... IMAG0031.jpgIMAG0034.jpgIMAG0044.jpgIMAG0084.jpgIMAG0032.jpgIMAG0035.jpgIMAG0048.jpgIMAG0077.jpg

Ooh now that's a great choice for Hawker Hunter......it will be lovely ( possibly unique) to see
it in those colors and scheme.......

A nice change from the colors of the Allies. ..

Good start :goodjob:

Great decision for your club contest and with the desert cammo, certainly is going to be a standout.

Nice work on the pilot and front office. That truly is a multi-national combo for the pilot.

Keep 'em coming

Peter

Sorry for no pics yet ............I keep putting things together and forget to pick up the camera

 

                                              Stupid time line to finish and I have a warped wing in two kits

 

                                               Its trying to be difficult on short notice, and I'm not helping much

 

                                                I screwed up mounting the warped wing and had to grind the thing 

 

                                               to hell to blend it in, so that stopped my SENIOR mind  from looking up

 

                                                and forget photos  coming soon

 

                                          Jack

Ok grabbed a few pics and there not really good, but ya'll know what a pre shaded model looks like.

Can't seem to get consistent photos, but keep trying.

 

This kit is like a nagging  wife you can't kill her cause you still love her, so you block the noise and keep going

and soon she'll stop and there will be PEACE

 

I apologize to the HUNTER FAITHFUL for the cannon barrels, but I have it on the best of authority that this was a  

"Local"  modification to aid in cooling the barrels for higher rate of fire cannon modification.

 

 That's my story and I'm sticking to it!IMAG0134.jpgIMAG0135.jpgIMAG0136.jpgIMAG0138.jpgIMAG0139.jpg

Thank You Peter,

It's fun to come up with something for a pilot............After modifying 9 crewmen for my B-17 I'm not afraid of playing  Dr. Frank in Stien

 

Very cool,... Veeeryyyy cooool

Thank You Sir

Yeah blackbetty,

 

  I have those too.

  I bought 1/144 Hunter and 2 F6 Lightnings  but no decals

 I thought of the Omani 2 tone dark and darker gray, their makings you couldn't see answered what to do with it.

 Now just figure out the Lightnings 

 

First coat of middlestone  just now and will keep posting as long as I'm working on it.

about an hour and i'll start to mix the Dark Earth
