  1. Thanks guys. Daco book ordered. It's exactly what I was looking for.
  2. Hi there. I have a Tamiya F4J coming to me on a slow boat from Hong Kong and in the mean time I thought it would be good to start gathering reference materials. Any recommendations? I'm looking for something with lots of detail pictures. Thanks in advance, C.
  3. I've done some searching but can't seem to find any online build articles for Tamiya's 1/32 F4J phantom. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks, Chuck.
  4. It looks like Wing Nut Wings is selling kits direct just like the good old days. The only difference is they now charge for shipping. I just checked out how much to ship to Canada and it was $18. This is MUCH better than the other options previously available. Good job WNW.
  5. Nice to see the master back at it! Looks good Wolf, Chuck.
  6. Oh man, I wish. Too much on my plate right now with doing to exterior renovations at home, family, work... I hope to get back at it sometime in the future. If I do I will be sure to post.
  7. Happy to see this build is back! Looking forward to any and all future updates Wolf. Chuck.
  8. Fantastic! Looks like I'll be making a WNW purchase in 2017 after all.
  9. Sharp looking pit Bill. Nice work!
  10. Thanks again everyone. I'll give your suggestions a try later tonight and report back.
  11. I need to blend in a raised plastic ridge with milliput and be able to separate the milliput part from the plastic area to further refine its shape once it dries. Does anyone know a way I can keep the milliput from sticking to the plastic? Thanks in advance.
  12. So, after gathering a few drawings from here and there for the HG II, I scaled up a set of plans to 32nd scale. From there I started working on nailing down the shape for the Hes 001 engine pods. I want to try my hand at having the forms laser cut out of plastic to use to make the skeleton of a scratch built engine pod. I will cast the completed pod in resin to give me the pair needed for this bird. Here is my first draft of the engine pods. Let me know what you think of the over all shape and if it needs any tweaking. Better to get it right now than have to go back and fix it later.
  13. I did up some drawings of the engine pod for a Heinkel Hirth Hes 001 engine as planned for use on a me 262 HG II. What do you think of the overall shape? Once I nail the shape down, my next plan is to have the sections laser cut out of plastic sheet to form the basis of a scratch built engine pod. Then I can resin cast a pair for my HG II build. How does it look guys?
