    Warbird got a reaction from Fanes in What's the best covering paint with 1 pass with the airbrush?   
    Hi,
     
    For this kind of work I use Gunze paint with approx 60% thinner and 5-10% of paint retarder. This will lower paint build up on your needle - but will extend drying time.
    You'll need to spend some time finding the best air pressure etc. setup as it is based upon many factors.
    Although it's not pencil thin, the lines on this 1/48 He-219 were painted in one pass.

    Hi Radu,
    The WWII video clearly shows that the slats of a presumably operational 262 don't stay in closed position and that if they do so they need to be adjusted.
    Your video shows that the slats of a museum plane that has not been in flying condition for decades behave differently.
    I believe the slats of a restored/new machine in flying condition would be more relevant to attempt any conclusion in the matter.

    I'm building the Revell (Monogram) 1/48 kit and the least I can say is that it has been a tough struggle to make it look acceptable to my eyes.

    Warbird got a reaction from Out2gtcha in F-102 questions...   
    Hi Guys,
     
    I have a couple of questions for 102 geeks  J
    1) In the Flight Manual it is stated that (after landing) "The speed brakes should be left in the extended position to facilitate turnaround". I guess it is to allow for the parachute to be put back in place for the next flight. So my assumption is that the speed brakes were left opened intentionally and not because of a drop of hydraulic pressure (which would rather make them close I suppose). As I want to build my 102 with speed brakes closed I guess that this configuration is technically possible for a parked aircraft. Can someone confirm?
    2) I intend to build the following plane. This plane is an early model that was based in Langley during the late fifties. Does someone know if there is any picture of any of the planes of this unit fitted with drop tanks? (drop tanks were introduced in 1958).

     

    Thank you!

    Hi,
     
    What is the reference of HPH resin canopy? I'm only aware of the set for the BN. Does it also include a corrected windscreen?
    Thank you.

    Warbird got a reaction from MARU5137 in 1/32 Italeri Mirage IIIE and variants.   
    Hi
    Maybe the photo you need for the intake. It shows a Mirage IIIS (Swiss), derived from the IIIE. The front landing gear is specific but the rest should be the same.
    I took it exactly at the right angle.
     
    Cheers

    Thank you Chek! I'm afraid I'll have to choose another delivery as I started this build months ago and I'm almost at the painting stage.
    I've already put great efforts into this kit so I'm not going to convert the wing type.
    There are many other attractive schemes, I'm not too worried.
     
    Cheers

    That's a beautiful 172! A very nice paint job in particular!
    I used to fly the one on the photo, which was equipped with a Thielert (Diesel) engine. Nice memories!

    Hello,
     
    This is my 1/32 Hasegawa P-47D in Gabreski's markings, completed a few months ago.
     
    MDC cockpit, Quickboost R2800, Barracuda wheels, complete riveting with MDC tool ( ), some scratchbuild and markings painted using Montex masks.
     
    I spent quite a lot of time studying photos of Gabreski's last aircraft and did my best to faithfully reproduce it.
    More photos in a complete article in the current issue (57) of Meng Air Modeller.
     
    Cheers from Switzerland!
