  1. looks like you will have to cut and twist the tail rotor pedal to fit into the crew boots, the feet on the figures go to forward from the kit pedals position
  2. aamazing work , didn't expect less after the amazing Pave hawk you did, that was a mind blowing helo, one detail, on the MH-6 the pilot in command seat on the left side, opposite to the rest of the choppers Jorge
  3. excellent work as alway Chuck, beautiful metal finish, and the positive rivet brought this model to life, what i found when taking pictures of natural metal airplanes is to use a black background . Jorge
  4. yes, i did finish it, i think the pictures are in the "ready" part of the forum
  5. Thank you for your kind words guys, wish Tamiya would come up with newer 1/32 models so i can buid more, already done P-51D, F4UA-1, A6 Zero, Spitfire, and JU-E126
  6. this is my last 1/32 kit , first for 2021, i dont build many large scale airplanes, only the Alies classics of WW2, this time is the spitfire, it is almost OOB build, just added resin wheels and PE seatbelts, and some wires to the engine, hope you like it guys. Engine cowls dont fit perfectly, but the model will be displayed without the engine cowls
  7. i used alclad 2 metallic colors, dark aluminum, airframe aluminum, over the alclad i rubbed SNJ metallic powder to make it look like real metal and fot the finish i used satin clear coat from MRP paints
  8. This is a cool looking airplane, although it never made production or even a prototype was ever built, i fell in love because is something new and different , this is the first model produced by a new manufacturer, DAS WERK , and the wood texture decals were made exclusively for it by uschi van der rosten. When you compared to a P-51D, this was i really small airplane as you can see in the last picture. i call it the ancestor or the grandpa of the A-10 by the position of the pulse jet engines and the twin rudder Jorge
  9. i removed the blades for the pictures so both hawks can be close to each other, and so i can save space in the display cabinet
  10. so i finally finished this two birds, i modified the main blades so they can be removed for storage , and in order to take this pictures one next to each other. Now i am waitin the release of the Seahawk to add another one to the family
  11. Nice new project Chck, i never get bored with you work and photos of the step by step, always keep following your works, i hope this Special hobby kit will be better than the ones i tried to build, never finished one because of terrible fitting issues, looks like this one is better than the other ones, will keep looking on the progress of this one Jorge
  12. Thanks Kev, its being a long time without doing something bigger than 1/48, but i am a big fan of the black hawk helicopter family, so you will see much more of it, as i am planning to buy all the Kitty Hawk releases of this chopper Jorge
  13. thanks Chuck, but nothing compares to your work as well as you photographic log of your work Jorge
  14. nothing much to say, i am still on the process of paint, worked on the tail boom left side, kind of like the finish so far, the nose is with the base coat, no weathering yet, and i added the sub parts so i can get a general look of what is done so far
  15. Pete, yes the black is a nightmare to work with, for the first time i am using oils to do the tonal variations on the black is the only way i found to get i nice looking black finish
