  1. It will likely shrink and discolor. If it does just put a layer or two or three of Future on it.
  2. Thanks to all for sharing! This thread just reinforces for me why I so love doing the cockpits. Beautiful work, guys!
  3. Hmmm . . . I think you got me! F = F 8 divided by 8 = 1 6 minus 6 = 0 8 minus 6 =2 All of the above equals: F-102. You are one smart dude!
  4. Great work! Great photos! Cockpits are my favorite part of aircraft modeling. I quickly lose interest after the cockpit and it thereafter becomes drudgery.

  6. The first plastic kit I built when I got back into the hobby. Cockpit is sparse, wings too thick, engraved trenches and rivets but otherwise a fun build. Whether on purpose or via a mold mistake, it is the only Zero kit in any scale to correctly depict the down-turned wingtips. The first Zero had a high stall speed. Not good for carrier operations. The designers considered various solutions and settled on the brilliant idea of simply twisting the wingtips downward. Now, should you decide to forsake your vow of no aftermarket sets for this kit, I have TONS of stuff I'll let you have for a minimal cost!
  7. Exceptional finish! I have debated buying the HPH MiG-15. Can't bring myself to do it, yet.
  8. Kevin, Sorry to be so late responding to you. You are correct that I was a victim of Photobucket. It upset me so badly that I dropped a number of modeling projects. I got on to other projects but will return to this project. I will re-enter the "Photobucketed" photos using a different hosting site. One other thing happened at the same time Photobucket decided to screw all their loyal customers: Rudy's tactful warning to me (see above) that I discarded in an off-handed manner became all too apparent. I was in the process of recognizing the wisdom of Rudy's observation and thereby re-building the interior shape of the ducts when Phtobucket struck. The two disappointments one on top of the other caused me to set this project aside. As soon as I finish an F-94C for a friend's father I will return to finish this project complete with restored photos. Thanks, Art

  10. WOW!!! Outstanding work! Thanks for the many photos. They show the kit very well.
  11. Great work, Karl. The paint job is especially nice. Do you have any photos of the underside of the model? I would love to see them.
  12. So Cool! Great job on a great kit!
  13. In looking at photos of the nose of the FR.10 it shouldn't be to too hard to modify the kit nose. Another option is to take a piece of bass wood, carve it and shape it to make a mold to "smash form" a new nose. Then just cut out a place for the side mount camera covering and replace with a scratchbuilt part. The forward camera covering would then only require some scribing to replicate. Sounds like a cool project!
