    Beaufighter: FINISHED.

    That paint looks really smooth. What did you use to set off the edges between colors?

    Omani Hunter, Call her done!

    I have 129% enjoyed following this WIP! It looks great. Loved seeing it next to the Swiss bird also.
  3. Absolutely superb. Wonderful amount of attention to detail. Hope I can get the weathering down half as good as you (gonna use that belly tank you sent me as a model!)

    AMT '59 El Camino

    I happen to have the real thing if you are moving along on this and need any research my model of it is a bit old and a little worse for wear, but then again so is the real thing. Leaks oil like a seive, you may not want to recreate that feature of the engine

    P-40K 1LT R. Johnson, Tunisia 1943.

    Wow, the longer I look at it the more and more little details and shadowing I see. Great looking pit!

    1/32 CF-5A Freedom Fighter

    Really great work. Love seeing another original F-5A conversion. I especially dig the flaps and slats! How tough was it to get the main fuselage joint together? The connection doesn’t look very deep on the one i have and I've been wondering how to mke it strong given how much the poece weighs.

    Kit Bash Stinger

    I got a lesson on how to straighten wire when I was working on the nose gear bay. Here’s how the main bays are turning out. Tomorrow I’ll primer and add some details plus a few colored wires. I superglued some piano wire behind the diagonal gear support arm to add some strength. I plan to pin the connection point with the piano wire too in hopes of keeping it all together.
