  1. I'm hoping Sprue Brothers will eventually stock these, I've already spent too much lately on overseas shipping !
  2. I have not been very productive of late as I have been spending most of my modeling time on my dark side hobby (model trains) but I did manage to finish one back in January that has been on my shelf of doom for way too long. It was there waiting for me to master the paint job I wanted and finally admitted defeat and finished it the best I could. The B-8 version was the proposed high altitude night fighter and none were ever built. The kit is the Tamiya B-2 variant to which was added two resin sets from Paragon. (I really miss them) The first being the night fighter conversion and the other was the extended wing set for the B-4 version. As you can see I used and inverse method on the paint scheme as I found I was better at painting blobs than creating them by painting round them. Since none were ever built I chose to use some artistic license. I replaced the resin antenna arrays with a set from Master that wasn't available at the time I started the kit. In the end I was happy with the result. A build log can be found here http://www.olddogsplanes.com/335b8.htm if interested. And a comparison photo with a B-1 variant Thanks for looking !
  3. I personally find that quite often alignment pins are mis-alignment pins and are more of a hindrance than a help.
  4. Wow, nice find ! Kinda looks like maybe the hydraulic pump wasn't up to the task.
  5. How many 109's do you have in your collection ? I would love to see a group photo, they all look superb !
  6. Very nice, I miss seeing your work Chuk !
  7. May just be me but it looks like the guy on the wing has his head inside a round access panel looking back towards his hand which can't seen but may be in another access hole
  8. Total failure of the fan disk, not just a lost blade, everything ahead of the fixed stater vanes disintegrated, pieces blew clear through the fuselage and out the other side, shrapnel severed electrical cables cutting power to the instruments, wing spoilers, and braking systems, the reason for the over run. Very fortunate that no one was injured.
  9. I have not participated in a group build on this site but have on others with mixed results as far as completions go. My issue is I really don't like deadlines. It's also easy to get sucked in if you have a kit that fits the topic but all too often I find I'm not motivated to build that particular kit at that time so it ends up on the shelf of delay.
