  1. Chuck, another excellent build of yours. Very bright aircraft you got there. Dan
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. Chris, like the faded OD and the battle damage looks really real. Took a lot of notes from you build. Dan
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Michael931080 The Peter Lewis book I am going to say has probably 90% of the pictures are in flight there is a little showing them on the ground. The other book is maybe 50/50. What pictures are on the ground I would say it is the aircraft waiting for the pilots. I had been watching these for a while and the seller shot my a very good deal on both books which I got off eBay.
  8. Treat myself to a couple books for Christmas.
  9. After doing a quick search I didn't come up with a answer. I started this kit with the engine portion since it was small and I could take it with me and work on it when I am not at home. After spending several hours cleaning up the ejector pin marks and filling the sink holes it doesn't look bad for the after burner area. Right now I got it just put together just a snug fit with all the parts. What is the best way to try and get rid of the four seams that run the full length? I'm thinking of gluing two pieces together take it apart and deal with that seam and than do it for the other two sections and than put it together and deal with only two seams in a tight place. Has anyone tried like baking soda or maybe even some of the anti slip paints to kind of brush on to hide the seam completely and kind of represent the fine rough texture of the after burner section? Also does anyone have a colored picture looking into towards the flame holder? Someone correct if I am wrong but would it be like color patterns you see in the F-16 and F-15 engines? Dan
  10. Jennings, will definitely be up for one set. They all look great but love the 526 and 587.
  11. You can't have enough aggressor aircraft decals either.
  12. just arrived you can't have two many books.
  13. lain, I'm in for at least a F.3 and maybe a F.6 Dan
  14. lain, great start dealing with the problems you see. You can put me down a wing kit. I don't have the J yet still holding out for the D but if you can come up with a wing kit that would probably make me buy a J along with later down the road of picking up other things to fix problems on kit. Dan
  15. Thanks guys for you input. Chek, the RAF Typhoon I want to do is a FGR4. Xtradecal X32048 has a colorful one on it. https://www.hannants.co.uk/product/X32048 Dan
