  1. Hello, I never said that your star was not OK. I just want to point out the way the intercooler doors are painted. I added arrows on the pictures below to show that it misses a little white and blue of the insignia bar on the intercooler door. Hope it'll help. Philippe
  2. Absolutly stunning, You should correct the star and bar on the side doors. The doors slide forward in the fuselage when they open, so in the door position you choose, the vertical front blue bar is hidden in the fuselage and the white and blue cover all the top of the door. A picture of one of my P-47 may help you to understand my bad explanations.
  3. Hello, You can go to the MAAM P-61 restoration website where you'll find a lot of pictures of their P-61B. http://www.maam.org/p61/p61_rest.htm It seems to me that cockpit color is more Bronze green than Standard zinc chromate green.
  4. Hope mine will be as beautiful when I'll built it.
  5. Hi, Here is the second one of the year. After the Tempest, I continue in the propellers but in more modern way. I added the Aerocraft metal landing gear wich are much more rigid than the kit ones. As for my P-61, I added a metal spar that covers the entire span, highly recommended because the bonding surfaces are very small between the three parts of wings and beams. Markings are painted with masks cut with the Silhouette. The armament configuration is totally invented. Hope you like it. This is my second KH kit after the Kingfisher and they are not so difficult to built if you take your time. Philippe.
  6. The first two pictures were taken between 1978 and 1983 in Cognac. The last picture with the GE313 aircraft from Aulnat AdA base was taken in May 1974.
  7. Well I need at least two kits. My father flew the Fouga in the Armée de l'Air at Cognac or Aulnat air force bases.
  8. Outer wings can be fold on the real aircraft, so no room problem. Have a look at WNW archives photos about the 0/400.
  9. Anyway, you can built it and hide the turrets under canvas covers.
  10. There were no critics about the HB B-24 in my above post. It was just information about the KitWorld decals regarding the HB kit. Sorry if some understood it in another way.
  11. It seems that the Hobby Boss Kit is not the good block version for the Dragon and his tail version. Dragon and his tail WWII aircraft is a B-24J-190-CO 44-40973. Hobby boss one seems to be a B-24J CF. Nose Turret is an A15 but the shape around it is not the same. Feel free to correct this if I'm wrong.
  12. Hello, This one should have been the last of 2018. This is the Special hobby high tech version and I added the Barracuda nose correction. Codes, serial and roundels are painted using Silhouette cutting machine for masks. This is Wing Commander Roland Beamont Tempest before D-Day invasion stripes were painted. http:// http:// http:// http:// http://
  13. A good way to adress the turrets problem: http://zupimages.net/viewer.php?id=18/52/cttz.jpg] Source :https://www.worldwarphotos.info/gallery/usa/aircrafts-2-3/b-24/b-24-base-spinazolla-italy-460-bg-hairless-joe-photo/
  14. Hello, Here is my last finished kit. It's the Italeri Mrage IIIC. I added the following items: -Musthave ejection seat. -Eduard wheels. -Eduard PE for interior and exterior. -Master Pitot. -Mix of Bernal decals and Italeri decals. NMF is Vallejo metal color. Philippe.
