  1. Very nice work!! A comprehesive guide to upgrade the good old tamiya bcat!
  2. Hi Miro Stunning. best looking Flanker model i ever seen. Cheers
  3. hi Impressive work! Lead can be toxic if particles or contaminated water are swallowed. Pay attention when heating, burning paints with lead. But simple handling seems not that dangerous, if you dont lick your fingers just after
  4. Hi I have the same project. So i will follow with great interest. have fun!
  5. Well done! Great job for a very unique model
  6. hi! that paint is mindblowing great job!
  7. Hi Im currently doing my own experiences with Portrait 2 autoblade. My last settings give a correct result: Blade depth: 1 Speed: 10 Force:5 Oramask 810 Romain Edit: speed: 1 to 10 Force 2 to 5 Seems better
  8. Nice work! The cockpit painting is very sharp
  9. Hi, Recently I tried to save a clear resin canopy. It had quite deep scratches I did not manage to erase with sanding/polishing option only. I tried Future/klir dipping with not real success. Then i bought AK gauzy glass coat. It filled the scratches and gave a nice finish. But It has left some bubbles or dust. I managed to erase them by polishing with tamiya compound. And then, i applied the Tamiya modelling wax: http://www.tamiya.com/english/products/87036/index.htm This product is excellent. Now my canopy is saved, and shiny! Romain
  10. Hello Thank you guys I received my order from Videoaviation. Products and shipping are quite cheap. But quality is high: nice packaging, no bubbles, clean molding... Here is the M117 set: We can appreciate the corrected front shape. Tail is also more detailed. Cheers Romain
  11. Thanks Laurent Just to know which drawing to rely on in order to check that tail shape. Bye!
  12. Hi Thierry, thanks! Do you know which scale plan could be the most accurate? I mean, in which book? site? Thanks in advance cheers Romain
  13. You re welcome! Eduard also released Mk82 (early style I guess?) https://www.scalemates.com/kits/1011658-eduard-632096-mk-82-bombs Also, I found those resin M117: http://www.videoaviation.com/accessories/m-117-gp-bombs/ I dont really know if it's worth it. Some other interesting bits like this usaf ground crew: http://www.videoaviation.com/figures/132-usaf-vietnam-crew-figures/ Cheers
  14. Hi, The tweak list says that Trumpeter M117 are not very accurate. Is it worth it to replace them by resin from videoaviation? http://www.videoaviation.com/accessories/m-117-gp-bombs/ That usaf crew is nice too: http://www.videoaviation.com/figures/132-usaf-vietnam-crew-figures/ About Mk82s, Thud in Vitnam wore early, late, both type? Thanks Romain
  15. Nice review! Like the author, I did not find big shape issue with the kit tail comparing plastic to real pictures. What is supposed to be wrong in there? As for the MER, Eduards released those beauty. Quite cheap moreover: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/1067646-eduard-632102-mer As for the gun, I will add Master barrels: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/224816-master-am-32-029-m61-a1-vulcan-six-barrelled-rotary-20mm-cannon and some scratch... Cheers Romain
