  8. Wonderful work being done!! I love it
  9. Brian....You are doing some 'Fantastic' work on this! And quickly too! I was really wanting to get this kit when all the hype of it first surfaced! So I started collecting reference materials! And now seeing your detailed/build of this kit, I really want one now! Great job my friend!
  10. Oh....And I forgot to mention, I think I will take up a new hobby! Throwing things!
  11. Oh.....Just another small update on this build of mine. Just had myself a BIG oops! Here's how it went, Some Tamiya extra thin glue seaped under the clamp I had on the wing. So I went to rescribing the panel lines and redoing the rivet detail when a small chunk busted!! In the worst place of course! In the corner of the wing/flap joint! So now to figure out what to do about that! I guess this is normal for me around here! LOL!
  12. Well I haven't got much done on this......I've been busy scratching my head here figuring out how to secure the vacume formed windscreen onto the fuse. (But most of the time wondering if I will even finish this thing! LOL) Anybody else have that problem?? More head scratching than building! If my idea works.....It should help in the assembly process! Here is a pic of the .020 x .030 plastic strips to secure the sides of the windscreen. Also the .040x.156....piece I shaped to secure the front of the windscreen. And a mock up pic of how it should fit! Again.....T
  13. Well I have a small update on this build. (Oh....and by the way, I don't build very fast because usually I can only work on the jet on weekends! And sometimes that's slim to none!) As I was test fitting the wings......I noticed that if you squeezed the wing assembly......it would cause a big gap where it joined the fuse! So to remendy that......I put some plastic blocks inbetween the two wing pieces! And to figure out how thick the blocks should be, I put some Blu-tack inbetween the two pieces, then got out the caliper. Worked really well! Also after the two halves of the flaps
  14. You are doing a 'wonderful' job on this helo!! Love it!!
  15. Yes it will be a Vietnam era bird! That is my favorite era to build! Thanks for dropping in! Your comments are greatly appreciated!1
  16. Very nice attention to detail! Looking good!
  17. Yeah Mike......It's homemade for my F-8 Crusader, and my F-4 Phantom. And now it fits my A-7E! I just made some different atachment pieces for it! Here's some pics! Thanks Mike for your kind comments! It looks like we think alike!
  18. I started my A-7E build a couple of weeks ago. (After seeing Zactomans fantastic correction kit!) This particular model has some fit issues, but i will try my best to tackle them! After spending the last two weekends cleaning up the Aires cockpit, wheelwells.....and electronics bay. I now have a few progress pics to share! My last few builds.....I have found it eaiser to do my closed fuse 'mockups'.....by making some plastic 'tabs', that holds the fuse together eaiser, than using alot of masking tape! Also i like to 'block in' my resin pieces with some plastic stock! This also helps
  19. Hello Barry........I am building a A-7E......and was wondering how you got your 'tail section', on your A-7 not to look so squished? (oblong) However you done it........it really looks good now!! Thanks for any help on this !
  20. I can 'definately' relate to that Barry!! Both getting caught up in life 'happenings'!...... and redoing some moddeling! I just hope it won't be too long before we see some updates!
