  1. Thanks for the advice. Your photos will help me in doing a correct nose. Cheers, Paulo.
  2. Hi. Some updates. The tail caused to me some troubles. The left side of the tail have in the upper part the details represented in the kit, but the right side have only bumps. So I have to recriate the details with extra thin plastic, a lot of sanding and the riveting job. So, I assembled the wings, with some plastic strips in the internal side, to allows the airbrakes to be movable, avoiding them to get broke in the plane assembly process, who surely would happens if they was glued in the open position. Then I corrected som
  3. First considerations: The Revell's kit have a nice details, and in a dryfit looks good in the junctions of the parts, with a lot of engineering on this. All the joints have recessed shapes to allows a easy gluing and with a little chance to gaps and other gluing troubles. The only issue that I find is some mold flaws in the fuselage parts who will need to be sanded down and removed. this will require some work in re scribe some lines and rivets. Now, the first correction. The set's cone nose is shorter than needs to be, and the circunference of the part is lower than the kit's
  4. Thanks, Friends. I will try not to disappoint you. Cheers, Paulo.
  5. Mark, firstly the set was developed to the old Revell's Mirage kit. Second, I believe that the set was developed to a child's use, because almost all the parts are wrong, with incorrect sizes and shapes. third, the parts are too simple, with a lack of details. and four, have a lot of errors in some parts. But is a good start to the project. The issues will be corrected with scratch and changes. Later, I will post some pictures showing these issues and the solutions. Thanks, Paulo.
  6. Alain,this will be the first issue. The set's nose is shorter a bit thhhhan the correct size and with a lower circunference than the kit',s nose. I intend to do a surgery in the cone adding a ring between the nose and the kit, to correct this. I hope that this will correct the two issues. Thanks, Paulo
  7. Hi, folks. I'm Starting a new project using the New tool Revell/Italeri Mirage IIIE. On these project I will use the Fisher Cockpit, the horrible CAM conversion set, and some more improvements, some in scratch. The object of this work will be an C2 KFIR in Ecuador markings. This is the desired object: Soon the updates. Cheers, Paulo.
  8. For personal reasons, I need to inform that Scale-pro Masks is being closed permanently. I'm having some troubles to send some masks ordered, and I decided that if I could not satisfy all the customers, is better to quit. My thanks to all the person that buyed from me, and my appologies to some friends that was not satisfied. All the orders yet maded will be sended. Any questions about the products could be made here, but I will not accept new orders. Thanks for all, Paulo.
  9. I have one 1/32 trumpeter MiG 3 in my stash. But I intend to made a "naked" plane, representing the state of plane when it getting out of the assembly line, still without any paint. This shows the metal parts and the wood parts. This kind of plane would be elegible for the GB? Thanks, Paulo.
  10. Hi, Kev. Unfortunately I could not fiish my F-5Es, at time. so I wis to request to you to move the topic to WIP foruns. Its poste here: Thanks, and My wishes of a Happy new year for all members!

  12. After a long time from April, and with a first package lost, then resended by Radu, I finally have received my Raffle prize. Thanks to Radu, to Kevin and to LSP! Paulo.
  13. Congratulations, my friend! another masterpiece! I hope that soon I would conclude mines. But if I could do a half good as your is, it will be fabulous! Cheers, Paulo.
  14. I'm using Imgur for some years, without troubles. Try it. Paulo.
  15. Hi, Rudy. As answering some of your questions, I assure to you that every F-5 in the world hve the lights in the sidewinder pods. And about the lights color, Brazil purchased two lots of American F-5s. The first lot was brand new planes, with some modifications maded over the old jets. The second lot was basicly retired planes from the NAVY aggressors. Just for curiosity in this lot we found the first and the second F-5E maded in the world. And besides this, all the Brazilian jets have the same configuration with red lights and Green in the pods and blue in the other lights. And th
