  1. Especially booktitles that end with <insert aircrafttype>boys.
  2. Sorry, I like girls but usually forget their names.
  3. You can get separate parts from ebay. There is one vendor who sells sprues. I got a fuselage and lower wing for a good price that way, and as you are based in the USA postage should be less.
  4. Loving this, I still have visions of the 1/24 scratchbuilt Defiant I saw at SMW Telford.
  5. IMHO the Revell kit is a better option to convert into an FGR-2.
  6. Thanks for showing the panelline details Anthony. As I need to rescribe the Frankenstein FGR2’s bum completely.
  7. Superb work at recreating that detail. Regarding the wings, do you need to fit a wingspar? The dihedral of the centresection is dead flat and the PCM-kit was a bit wobbly in that respect and I had to fit a plastic spar. Keep it up Cees
  8. Amazing, I really enjoy you creating superb models from almost nothing.
  9. We'll see how it works out. One side is glued the rest will follow today (working from home has it's merits).
  10. Why so difficult Anthony, it is easier to stitch a Tamiya and Revell kit together
  11. Raw powerrrrrr.... Still beavering away at joining the Tamiya/Revell lovechild.
  12. Nice work Anthony, now we can clearly see the bulk of the Spey modification on the underside.
  13. Thanks Anthony, One of the links in that thread directs you to the site of a certain modelling genius and who is a autodidact draughtsman too with some very nice drawings for the FG-1. http://soyuyo.main.jp/f4/f4e-1.html
  14. "Poof"? Not really a flattering nickname. As you know what they mean by that in the UK.
  15. Brave man, Be careful cutting out those aux intake doors as they are easily damaged. Guess how I know
  16. Nice surgery Anthony, Keep it up as you surely feed my motivation to continue on my scratch conversion (just relocated the lower bleed doors). Cees
  17. Is there a 1/32 Wellington vacform kit?
  18. Great work Anthony, And thanks for correctly positioning the aux. intake doors. In the meantime I have ripped apart my intake conversion as I felt the intakes ( modelled on Frank Mitchell’s build) were too wide and gave it a comical look. The intakes are widened again but by about 3mm which looks better compared to photo’s. Unfortunately the intake ramp parts were effectively destroyed and I will have to take my words back and will use FOD-covers. Although this will speed up the work and I can concentrate on the rear fuselage. Oh well. Cheers Cees
  19. Thanks Derek, that confirms it then. Very nice work on the panellines Anthony. Mine will be a camouflaged Toom. Cees
  20. Hi Anthony, It is your fault I have started again on my scratch conversion The past few days I have sanded the life out of the widened intakes to get a smooth surface. As II do not want FID covers, that is cheating Do you know what colour the intake ducts were finished? I have seen many pics but so far two show that the rear end is a light colour (white?) and the front looks like dark sea grey. Still have no photo Hosting site as I do not trust any if them since the photobucket **** up. Following your thread with more than normal interest. Cheers Ce
  21. Thanks for this topic, it gives me some much needed motivation to start working on my scratch conversion again. Cees
  22. A kit of almost fifty years old? Airfix did their research well at the time within the capabilities that existed then. It is probably unbuildable by today's standard () but as Don says, enjoy it.
