  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
  16. greetings all. As the title says I am thinking of buying a Trumpeter Eurofighter. Looking at probably doing a Great Britain one. I was looking online and ran across Aires has two sets offered. 2118 is a late exhaust set and 2119 is a early exhaust set. I have been all over the internet and can't find what the difference is between them. The pictures of the sets on SB I can't tell what is the difference. Can someone help me with a answer to my question. Dan
  17. Chuck, The canopy looks outstanding. Thanks for the Photography Tutorial. Like all your builds it is a never ending learning experience from you. Taking lots of notes on the cockpit and the canopy since I have this in the pile. All thou the tiger stripe on is really sharp looking, I vote for the black MiG-28. Chuck have you had a chance to look at the exhaust on this thing? Looking for your magic here. Dan
  18. Chuck, Just like all your builds they are excellent and it is great to see you do your magic on them and to learn from you. Will be following along with this one. I can't believe that the Black Box resin cockpit fits as will as it does. I am surprised none of the after market companies haven't made a cockpit yet for the Kitty Hawk F-5E/F. Dan
  19. Thanks for following along. I'm kind of torn between doing the two tone blue Kai phantom and the pre 50th. anniversary one. Sorta leaning towards the pre 50th. anniversary one. Haven't seen very many of the zotz pre 50th. anniversary one's built. Mighty colorful markings. Dan
  20. Here is my entry into the group build. Still rounding up the last of the after market parts I need.
  21. did my own birthday shopping and picked these up for myself since birthday is in a few days. Not 1/32 but should be a interesting build.
  22. found these under the tree. Just got to find a few more after market items for one of the F-4EJ's for the multi-engine group build.
  23. sorry Jennings about the post those were all round files. Here is the only other things I have found. https://widgetsupply.com/product/bbg04.html https://www.woodcraft.com/categories/files-rasps?types[]=Taper
  24. Jennings, not sure if this helps you. https://www.grainger.com/product/IPA-5-Swiss-Pattern-Round-Micro-19RE91 Dan
  25. GDW, the dry transfers you refer to they came out with the first release from Wolf Pack. They were included with the resin conversion kit #WP32010
