  1. Nice attention to those small details, and great presentation! Alain
  2. Nice to see the colorful paint scheme on your model, after all that work! It will be spectacular! Alain
  3. Stunning work so far! It is also very convenient to have the 1:1 scale article avaible to mesure for your project. Alain
  4. Raised rivets! Those guys are not afraid to reproduce them as they should be! The opening panels show the nice interior details well. Alain
  5. Nice! I would be interested also, even know wich one to do! Alain
  6. More than that for sure! The most realistic bare metal finish I've seen! Alain
  7. Very nice to see what it will look like in position! That base is beautiful! Alain
  8. Very nice work on an impressive model, and interesting to follow the build! Alain
  9. I really enjoyed the droid builds! And congratulations for the awards! Alain
  10. Thank you very much guys! I will be looking over all this information and making my own little paint samples. Alain
  11. Hi all! I am wondering what is the shade of the early war light gray on Japanese Zeros. From what I have gathered, it seems to vary between a light olive and a light caramel color. Does anyone have an informed opinion on this? And if possible, a recipe with Tamiya acrylics to represent this colour. Thank you in advance! Alain
  12. Thank you! An interesting airplane with many marking and paint options. Alain
  13. Hi Gaz, That racing scheme is so well thought out (and so nicely modeled too) that it looks entirely plausible! Makes me wish it was real! Did you think of a name for it like the other racers? Alain
  14. I love to see the superb gloss finish on the Ta. The plane looks like it really wants to go! Alain!
  15. Fantastic work! I like those specialized ships, very purpose looking! Alain
  16. The wings of a Fairey Barracuda can be folded also!!! Now wouldn't that be something! Alain
  17. Very cool! How does it feel to build the kit with the parts you created? The mismatch is probably caused by the flexibility of the silicone mold, while the resin is setting.
  18. I agree, but maybe after the Hellcat they might choose a subject in another theater of operations.
  19. When Airfix released their first 1/24 kits, the theme was the BoB. If they continue with that type of logic (purely speculative concept on my part), and to complete their release of the Fw 190 and P-51, and Typhoon they could add the Me 262 , Fw 190 D, P-38 and late Spit for a late war selection. A Tempest would fit perfectly too. A D-9 exists from Trumpeter already so this type might not be considered as much but who knows... A desert theme would be interesting too and a Macchi 202 and P-40 jump to mind! Post war, why not the Korean war. Not so well known but nice subjects: Sea Fury, Firefly, Sabre, MiG-15, Panther. Many of these suggestions have been made in previous posts, but I thought they could be grouped in a logical way. Also, a EE Lightning would simply be astounding!!! One of the most iconic jets of its era! Alain
  20. Just another thought: how about a Tiger Moth, that would be cool! Tons of markings, military or civilian. Alain
  21. That's an idea, but I would suggest a new Spit Mk I or a Corsair, which would have good appeal to many modelers. I still like the thought of a Beaufighter, as it would be an impressive kit for sure.
  22. A big like for that saucerful of secrets! And that Ta152 C is going to be quite unique. I hope you can finish it shortly. Alain PS: my 14 year old son is a big fan of Pink Floyd and that makes me pretty happy!
  23. Very interesting build and history too! Great work on the launchers! Alain
