  1. Peter has an accurate gear door. If there is any discrepancy, it will be the full size version that is wrong. Stunning stuff and I am enjoying all the details being swapped between experts.
  2. 7 and d But seriously, as others have pointed out, it is the engine, with associated lumps and bumps, and the wing configuration.
  3. I have also wondered about this but not tried anything yet. My thinking was perspex rod with various rings airbrushed on with clear orange and smoke. I wonder if you add an LED in the engine, this will provide the appropriate "glow".
  4. Glad to hear Inky is on the road to recovery. Freyja sends peace and healing thoughts... Tonka can offer protection services for a fee...
  5. ...but once you have built the nose kit, you will start thinking "Gee, it would look great with wings and a full fuselage, just imagine, four Merlins hanging next to the nose." And then you're gone. Another large scale kit sold to the man with the paintbrush.
  6. Looks great Chuck, beautiful finish. I would be happy if I got one element of this build correct but you keep knocking it out of the park.
  7. I am more interested when the nose kits will be available. One a year for Christmas until I drop would be nice.
  8. Yow Jennings! Poor kitty, I hope everything turns out OK.
  9. I'm no expert, so my advice is build a -4E
  10. Thanks all for your suggestions. I will give it a go in the next week or so when the base coat has fully dried (and I have the time).
  11. I will be using Tamiya X-22 and assume that the paint surface is adequately prepared. How do I transfer the gloss coat from the paint cup to the model so that it looks glossy and perfect? Pressures? I usually aim for 15psi wish Thinners/gloss coat ratio? Generally I go 50/50 I also heard of someone spraying a final coat of neat levelling thinner. Is this a good idea?
  12. Yep, I have one of these portable units. It is my "go to" booth. Mainly because it's the only one I have. It actually works well, but I think I would like something a bit bigger and stronger. I am intrigued/concerned about the IKEA cooker hood option because of the risk of fire etc. Previous discussions on this site have stated that the concentration of solvents is so low that the chances of fire are negligible. Not sure I believe that but I have no technical knowledge at all. Any comments on this are welcome but remember you are talking about the future of my facial hair if you get it wrong.
  13. Thanks Dave, I'm thinking the Academy Sufa kit is cheaper than the AFV Club version so that might be a good way to go.
  14. So, if I had a huge rush of blood to my head, could I build a Singapore Air Force F-16D from the Sufa kit? I'm thinking "Yes".
