  5. Hi guy's; Told you i'm not a fast builder... I just finished most of the cockpit, still need touch up. Here it is with no IP With the IP, need to work the glass panels a bit more: With the ejection seat: The ejection seat (seem that a lot of dust invaded my workplace...): Need to tone down the ejection loop whatever it named... I'm sorry for the delay in my update but this one is the reason: My Tamiya F4U-1A: Next step for the Cf-188, Gear wells... They scare me!!! to much details! As usual, any criticism and comments are welcome Regards Stephane

  8. Hi guy's; My name is Stephane (same a Stephen but french) Pelletier and this is my 1st build thread on this great forum. Been lurking for some time now, and i have finaly have the courage to start my own build thread. I always wanted to build a Cf-188 from the 425 Alouettes squadron based in Bagotville, Quebec. My little brother father in law was a Weapon specialist, navigator on one. I can't do his plane as it was a 2 seaters but still can build one from his squadron. The plane i want to build: Credit: 2011 Barry Griffiths I'm pretty new to scale model planes and never wrote any real build thread, also my first language is french so, please bear with me I'm a real slow builder and have a tendancy of leaving build to start new one when i encounter big problems... I have currently have on the bench: a Tamiya F4U-1A Corsair,Tamiya P-51D (scared of alclad syndrome) a Revell BF-109 G6 and a Revell Spitfire Mk2a + 1/35 armor, 1/48 planes etc... each in different build phase... The kit i will use for this build is the Academy F/A-18A+ The after market i will use.. Ares F/A-18C hornet wheel bays Ares exhaust nozzles (not so sure after reading Chuck CF-188b thread) Wolfpack F/A-18A+ cockpit set Eduard f-18 placards Eduard f-18 exterior Eduard f-18 mesh set Eduard remove before flight (fabric) Rhino intake and wheel set Scale aircraft conversion main landing gears (not to sure again...) Canuck CF-188 Hornet Fip marking decals For Doc's i will be using Daco, In detail&scale F-18A-B, Squadron signal fa-18 hornet, Chuck build thread on the CF188B and the internet. I started cleaning the resin after market that i will use: Ares F/A-18C hornet wheel bays Wolfpack F/A-18A+ cockpit set (generate huge amount of dust!!!) Thats it for now, told you i'm slow Any comment,constructive comments and tip are welcome Just keep in mind that i build model for myself, relaxation and not for competition (never been in one) but i still want to do a good job... Stephane
  9. Jer; Great build so far! The pit is amazing!!! Can't wait for more update Stéphane
  10. Beautiful Corsair. I really love the weathering! Hope mine will be half as good. Great work Stephane
  11. Thanks Chuck I will need this tricks and advice when i build my CF-118 (Academy). As usual your build threads are full of nice trick and are a joy to read (particularly the Cf-118) Stephane
  12. Building mine right now (slowly...)... i'm forum build thread shy but thinking about it
  13. How is the service and delay at Hobbylink? I never ordered from them.
  14. Nice build You really making me want to buy one Can't wait to see the next update! Stephane
  15. Just got an idea... Maybe i can mail you my Tamiya LG and wheel parts? As i said, i already have the metal LG and resin wheels... and don't plan to use the plastic one. F4U-1 and 1A lg and wheels are the same? right? I can do that this weekend... As i need to read thru the instruction to know which parts (if any) i need to keep. Maybe by the time you receive them, your mojo will be back Pm me your address if you want to take my offer Stephane
  16. Oki: http://www.hannants.co.uk/product/SAC32074 http://www.hannants.co.uk/product/BCR32119 Both are in stock For removing the tamiya one... I know you can do that in a breeze. You can't throw all that beautiful work to the bin Stephane
  17. Yes but you can buy the resin wheels from Barracudacal http://store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/barbr32119.htm This remedy both of your problems (wheel and LG) In all, it will cost you about 30$ for both Stephane
  18. Hey Mal don't give up! Scale aircraft conversion sell metal landing gears for the Corsair (i bought a set for mine and they are nice) http://store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/sac32074.htm Maybe some online store in Europe sell them? You can't throw away a piece of art Stephane
