  1. Bill, interesting question. Doing a little research and found two photographs of a well known crash landed G-14 at Operation Bodenplatte, clearly showing the rod in the cockpit after releasing the canopy. As far as I see (and interprete the photos) the canopy was jettisoned before crash landing. http://falkeeins.blogspot.com/2013/09/more-maxis-ivjg-53-bf-109-g-14.html I´m sorry, can´t put the pics in at the moment. Hope that helps! Reimund
  2. Phantastic looking HAF F-4! Congrats! I like the wear and tear a lot! Reimund
  3. John, this sounds great! Do you concentrate after Ju 88/188/388´s and Me 110´s now on Bf 109´s? Did you ever thought of doing a Me 110 C-6? OK, not many built and there are only 1-2 decal options from Kagero (but nowadays quite impossible to find), but maybe a future project you might think about.... Cheers Reimund
  4. Fantastic looking Würger! Cheers Reimund
  5. If there is a chance to untighten (I´m sorry, if this is not the correct term) the cushions without any damage, that´s the first step. Option #1: cover these parts with lead foil. Then you could do some crinkles to the into the lead foil, depending on the wear and tear the seat should have. Be careful that the parts would fit onto the seat once you put the lead foil on the parts - maybe you need some trimming. Add some filler (i. e. Gunze) if you like and then paint. Some wash and/or drybrushing would do the rest. Option #2: put some tissue onto these parts, dip some water with a drop of white glue onto using a brush. I would recommend to put the tissue plain to the parts without or without any huge crinkles (I haven´t seen any worn seat cushions so far but no rule without an exeption....). When the tissue has dried once again some filler and paint. Option #3: sand off the paint and some glue onto the parts. Mayabe you have to repeat this a few times to soften the styrene. Then you can do some crinkels using a knife, a little screwdriver or whatever you like. If you´re satisfied, let it dry. Next step is painting. Option #3a: Soften the styrene using glue, then press something onto the parts to create some texture, i. e. rough sanding paper. . I would recommend to try these options first, using some spare parts. You will see which one is perfect to your eye. HTH. Cheers Reimund

  10. Piero, good to see your Gina on this site! Congrats to a very good looking model so far! Seeing your model I do remember my Gina which waits for further progress! THIS is motivating me to go on (if I only had enough time to....)! Cheers Reimund
  11. I never had the courage to paint the F-117 the way you did it! But comparing to the original this looks PERFECT!
  12. G-Man, if interested then PM me the numbers of the damaged parts. Maybe I have them in my spare box as I did a C-4 nightfighter and a Mistel. Cheers Reimund
  13. Tim, I have this decal sheet and some reference pics. I´m at work this night and let you know tomorrow! Cheers Reimund
