    Zoukei Mura Concept Notes

    Ta152 Concept Notes do not included rivet patterns. However Ta152 rivet patterns are included in Valiant's Airframe & Minature No. 3 The Focke Wulf Fw190D and Ta152. Good luck, look forward to see your build reports.

    1/32 Special Hobby Hawker Tempest Mk.V

    BC - I'm using Roy's gunsights. The kit Barr & Stroud and Acemaker sights are wrong on so many levels. Not sure what SH used for reference. Mine will have Roy's Acemaker gunsight borrowing unused PE from one of my Tamiya Spitfires. It will fit and is superior to kit offering. Bench time to resume as I've been off due to sport injury, kids activities and week unplugged vacation in North Country (Adirondacks, NY). My Tempest and FW190C are going to get some love.

    Is the ZM Ho229 OOP? I check a few site and all listed as either "out of stock" or "backordered"

    You had no fit issues with your 14 Tempest Mk.V builds?! Respect! I had fit issues with cockpit fitting in closed fuselage. I had to trim the wheel well panels at wing root area. I ended up discarding the Yahu sides as fit was very poor. The center panel worked well. Used kit sides and decals. Once the fuselage is closed difference between Yahu and kit IP hard to determine. My build has stalled and will resume soon. Some minor re-scribing on wing leading edges then off to the paint shop.
  10. nice stuff. The FW190A/F series is a beautiful aircraft. Perhaps the best of WWII, definitely Axis aircraft.

    Who Will Be Watching the Royal Wedding?

    Ice Hockey with a bunch of 10 year olds had me out the door at 0515. Caught some pre stuff waiting for my son to get his gear together. He forgot his jersey, luckily one of the kids had an extra on. Really impressed how the UK gets all involved with celebrating.

    MRP Paint Question

    Love MRP. Pro Tip: Think multiple layers when painting. For me, this stuff straight out of the bottle is great for pre/post shading and marbling.
