    1/32 F-4K/M. Conversion Set for Tamiya F-4J

    Too pricey for me, sorry. See my other thread about the possibility of 3D printing.
  2. So, I am embarrassed. I have completely messed up a canopy dipping it in Future. Don't know why. I have tried re-dipping and that didn't work, so the Future will have to come off. How to do this without Simple Green? I am going to try some thinners in a minute but don't hold out much hope. What do you suggest? Diluted bleach???

    Acrylic rod bending

    Glad that all worked out! You say you won't be in Singapore for ever. That is what I used to say...
  4. Thought I would start a new thread so as not to hijack the HKM thread. I am eager waiting for the HKM kit, even if I have to wait a few more years (i can do that), I would love to have a large scale Spey Phantom. Which brings me to this: It seems several people have "accurate" measurements and comparisons between the Brit Phantoms and the F4-J. Would it be possible to create 3D printed items to cover the conversion, or is this too much? I am thinking only of the external airframe, cockpit mods you are on your own! Or how about releasing a 3D printable file where people can choose to print their own or get it done by a third party? It seems to me that our natural thoughts, when it comes to AM, is resin and PE but we have this new technology to play with and I would be surprised if it was not possible. I know stuff all about 3D printing, apart from it prints stuff in 3D. So, I welcome your thoughts.

    Looks like the Revell Super Hornet is out

    I have looked hard at the photos for a few seconds and cannot for the life of me see a big problem. If it was a Spitfire, I could spot if one rivet was out of place, but this? No way. Sometimes in this hobby, ignorance is bliss.
  7. Nice solution for the intakes! The shot towards the fan almost puts me in there with a cleaning rag, as if I was an erk on the flight line. Looking forward to seeing the end result but very much enjoying the journey on the way.
  8. Beautifully done! Those sprayed on markings look great and now you have me wondering if I should invest in a portrait cutter...

    Canopy polishing

    Have you tried dipping it in Future?

    Swiss F-5E

    Nice build! I like the finish and the lines of the F-5 are just beautiful.

    HK Lanc pilots seat

    If the kit seat pan is too long, can you not just take a razor saw to it and cut some material out of the middle and then glue it back together? Feels like that would be a quick fix, but I don't have the kit so will never know.

    WnW Felixstowe

    Great job getting rid of that ugly seam! Loving this build, I am never going to build one so you are living the dream for me!

    My opinion on the Lancaster from HK Models

    Very interesting review, thank you for posting. Some good observations from someone who actually has the kit in his hands. My only comment is that you are making an assumption that WNW will be better (reasonable IMHO), but I am not sure it is strictly fair to compare an existing kit to something that is far from being on the market yet. Not a big deal and you can write what you like, I am just saying it didn't sit well with me, that's all.
  14. I feel for HKM. They have (apparently) poured a lot of resources into the Lanc, including some significant re-work during this time. Then WNW announce their Lanc. It must feel like a real kick in the danglies. And then we flame them for not delivering the Phantom. I guess they need to pause to see how their Lanc investment is paying off. If I was HKM, I would want to curl up in a dark hole somewhere and not come out again, ever. So, credit to them for launching some good kits, I fervently wish them well and that they will continue to release kits. I can wait for the Phantom. Just let me know when it's ready.
  15. Not being 100% accurate- is it a big deal? Nope, not for me.
