    Meng's Me-410 B2/U2/R4 Complete! 2/Nov/18

    Gaz, A very well done kit! The tonal variation is very well done. I know that camera's can not always pick up all the minor hue's but I am of the mind its very well done at the least. I am going to try your weighted wheel technique with a F6-F I have beating on. Job well done, looking forward to the next one!!

    Because there’s no such thing as too many Phantoms

    Awesome work.....I will be following you closely as I am am also in the middle of a phantom build. I look forward to learning from your build.

    John, As a child she was one of the planes that drew me to aircraft. Classic lines with the brute force of thrust.... Thank you for your kind words. Your input is very much appreciated. -Frank

    That is good to hear. They do look very good. Odd how such things make me excited when it comes to modeling. I really want to make the model as accurate as possible. I looked at the tweak list and decided that it will take many Phantom builds to get to a base state of knowledge and capability to match some of the builds here. Thanks for the heads up. I would likely have never known. I will look for more and post them as I compile them.

    I know right!?!? It was late..... I really was disappointed. Everything I have bought to this point has been made pretty well. I very much love supporting the cottage industry that much of the aftermarket products of modeling is. Live and learn, not a big deal. First world problems . When I joined this web site I would buy a model and put it together with aftermarket being very much a secondary thought. I had never imagined that I would be at the point where I look at aftermarket as a must. And I'm looking more and more in to custom tools and creation. There are some great modelers here that use wood and other products to make terrific models. So much too learn.....

    ummmmm....My curiosity was peaked so I had to look. Pretty disappointing. Placing an order with Aero Craft tonight. This model is going to edge into my budget.

    Question Re: Trumpeter Mustang Mk III

    Brad, I just happen to have that kit out as I look to building it. It has both the standard P-51 Canopy and the Malcolm hood. To confirm that's Trupy kit # 02283 P-51B Mustang III. -Sapper

    Scott, My set from SAC came from the manufacturer with one of the mains bent. I contacted them and they said the would replace it if there was a problem straightening the main. I haven't delved in to that yet, but will very soon. As I was doing my research the brass ones came out, believe me I am giving them strong consideration. They look sweet. I have the Revell F-4E kit in the stash and will probably at least get one set, likely two. -Frank

    Ron, Thank you. Keep an eye on Sprue Brothers for his kits. Hopefully you can pick one up soon. I didn't know about the stiffener rib. I appreciate the heads up. I will definitely look in to it. I had to look up the tracked runway. I had always wondered about that. Pretty interesting stuff. I really appreciate your input! -Frank

    Looks like a piece is missing from the kit. I will have to look at making the piece. Another first.

    A lot of work over the last couple days. Modifying the base kit for the resin additions, test fitting, more research, building fuel tanks, mixing paints and primers and general build order planning. Looking at wheel well wiring (Say that fast three times) and other wiring details to make sure I have a plan, has been time consuming. This is the first kit that I am planning to cut up as much as I am. While its nothing when compared to many of the incredible kit makers here, its giving me a lot of confidence. I predict a whole lot more kit destruction/building as its adding a whole new dimension of fun to me. I have learned much by looking at the many incredible builds and builders on this site. I will be forever thankful for those that have taken the time to answer my questions and endure my persistence. Focus on the cockpit modifications has gone fairly well up to this point. I am really excited about the detail and accuracy of the work space. Regardless of what you see in the picture, I have no intention of including the Sherman Tank tracks or the M4 Mortar Carrier frame in the current Phantom build. Although, that's not to say I haven't done some test fitting.

    Typhoon at war

    Every time I see that video, I think that pilot had to have been on a few missions to be as good as he was. Great footage and fantastic shot.
