    1/32 RNZAF A-4K Kahu Skyhawk

    GDW there seems to be several different buckets of paint used to paint these at base Ohakea..the ones in the museums all seem to have different panels painted with different shades..sort of like accidental camouflage!

    Criticism?! You'd be pretty brave to criticize anyone who has the skills to scratchbuild!

    Any cockpit pics? Did you scratch up the glass screens and HUD?

    Supermarine WALRUS by HPH

    Wow they really put 2 guns on those things!? It’s a little like putting an airbag on a bicycle

    Trumpeter A-4M Canopy in the open position

    This is good. I was wondering how to do this. My A-4 is in a 4 year hiatus waiting for Anthony in NZ’s exciting cockpit project. I think I need to also make the bulkhead. If the Brazilian version is the same as the NZ version..there is a loose (looks like canvas) strap that flaps around on one side that is for the pilot to pull the canopy down with.

    Did you see GDWs canopy build Anthony? Are you planning to do yours open? I’m wondering how to tackle it because it needs a stiffener of some sort but I don’t want it to be visible and I don’t think the Kahu has that bulkhead behind the bang seat

    Straightening bent white metal landing gear

    Yes but into a shiny blob which gives off that smell if you’ve ever done a bit of electrical repair..I bet they use solder as the main ingredient when they’re casting

    Straightening bent white metal landing gear

    White metal is mostly solder..stick a soldering iron on them and see what happens
