  1. If it wasn't hard to decide what paint scheme to do before here is a couple books I just got on the JASDF Aggressor F-15J schemes.
  2. Hi all. Great thread and I just bought the 1/32 Italeri GR.4 and since I don't know much about them hope more companies come out more eye popping decal schemes.
  3. Kevin, Just checking in again. The texture looks great. What did you do to get the texture? Keep up the good work. Kevin did you have any information on which ones of the Jagdtiger had Zimmerit applied to them? Dan
  4. Kevin my Tiger I is the Hobby Boss 1/16 scale one. Doesn't have a interior which is a plus if you don't open any hatches. I will have to look up my notes but there was a lot of things I have to change. Off the top of my head it was a mixture of early, mid productions. Kevin where did you go to get a quote on your acrylic cover?
  5. Hope this works this time. Dan
  6. Kevin, not to hike jack your build here but you are doing a great job. On my Tiger I exhaust shields I used numbers off the Archer set that Ray posted a picture of them. Here is a picture of mine without anything added on top of them for you to compare. https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/640x480q90/923/gXdMFx.png
  7. It isn't 1/32 but 1/48 scale but hope DXM will make them in 1/32 scale. Spotted this over on Sprue Brothers today than all we need is the new upgraded nose section. https://store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/dxm01-4244.htm
  8. Kevin, excellent build so far. have you seen this series on U-Tube of this guy's build? I just starting watching them when I get a chance. In this one he was saying something about the directions putting the road wheels together are wrong. Dan
  9. Kevin, Great start on the Jagdtiger. I have this in the pile to go with my Tiger I which stalled out. I sure wish they would have come up with some more after market items for this like a barrel with the correct rifling in it. Besides what Aber puts out I haven't found much for these big tanks especially this one it is a shame. Keep up the great work and I'm following along taking notes. Dan
  10. Chuck, another excellent build of yours. Very bright aircraft you got there. Dan
  11. hey everyone got this the first day they came up on Sprue Brothers. Since most everything is shut down I dug out one of my F-4EJ kits. If I pull this off might have to wear to look at it. I did get pick up Mr. Color 124 Dark Green and Mr. Color 308 Gray for exterior colors. Dan
  12. I don't remember but somewhere I found it online that it called for C308 Light Ghost Gray and C124 Dark Green Gunze Sangyo Paint call outs. Dan
  13. Chris, like the faded OD and the battle damage looks really real. Took a lot of notes from you build. Dan
  14. Thanks everyone. yes I did see and I'm following "The Large Scary Project" of Chrish. Thought I would just trying a hand at having Stigler's Bf109 sitting on a small diorama base of grass. Look's like the Revell kit gives you the option of both early and late. From what I have unearth for information it looks like maybe Stigler's was a early one. But will start gathering up a few aftermarket items and start a build soon. Dan
  15. Hey every one. I just got done reading the book A Higher Call. I don't know anything about German Bf109 aircraft. I am wanting to do Franz Stigler's Yellow 2 aircraft. The only thing after a quick search here and on the internet is that I know it was a Bf109 G-6. I turned to look at my favorite hobby stores online to see what is offered. I see that Trumpeter made a early and late version. I have two questions. 1. What was Stigler's Bf109? A early or a late version 2. Will the Trumpeter kits need much conversion / scratch building to make Stigler's aircraft? Thanks Dan
