  6. btw you have a superb job on basic construction this is not a shake and bake kit
  7. the trump model does give you seperate flaps. they were usually raised by the ground crew when on the ground although I have seen mix and match. I think for a repainted in the field ac the area under the flaps is probably camo color at least it is on the nasm ac. I think they would research their ac carefully as well
  8. you da man I am follwoing behind you with the same aircraft using yours as an inspiration!
  9. I ended up going with the hasegawa one to start off it looked like the most usefull one to start with

  11. not to be critical of a beautiful realized model but that ac did not have the antenna wire.
  12. i did this by photocoping the decal and used it as a cutting guide. that shold give the accurtate shape you just need some stape which is flexible enough

  17. Yes I saw some on ebay the shipping will kill you though! I am goinh to chevk the pne hobby store in my town
  18. I build intermittently and had not had to restock any of my rlm colors due to building some modern airplanes recently. Just started an messersmith 262 and was at the dregs on my rlm 66. it's hard enough finding a local hobby store but I was visiting my granddaughter in DC and visited hobby works in Laurel Maryland. they had model Master on the shelf but no rlm 66 to my surprise when I asked the clerk she said oh that's been discontinued. What a pita. I was able to get mr color rlm 66 But since it is a lacquer if i want to lighten it now need a lighter gray color lacquer. I think sooner or layer will be forced into acrylics
  19. thunnus what happend to this great build thread?
