  1. Very nice! How do those rivets hold up to masking? For example the OD green anti-glare panel on a P-47. Would the rivets pull off when you remove the tape? Andy
  2. Looking good dude! Looking forward to seeing it in person Andy
  3. I am getting ready to start a Pearl harbor A6M2 myself. Any help will be appreciated. Wasn't there someone who did a nice PDF of the color schemes and colors of the Zero and they were selling it? Andy
  4. Okay, the rear compartment just needs the Hyd fluid tank and some plumbing and some wires. Avionics are done and will add a few wires here and there. Almost ready for paint! Andy
  5. Managed a little bit of time on the bench. I got the sound proofing done and started dressing up the rear area will scrap PE and stuff from the spares box to busy it up some. Hopefully it will be in paint soon: Andy
  6. Jeff, Some I will post pics in a few. Andy
  7. Jeff, Hello, there are really no fit issues with the kit. at all. The "A" is the same kit with the shorter fuselage. Having said that there is nothing wrong fit wise. There are some accuracy issues, off of the top of my head there is the squared off archway on the aft cockpit bulkhead. Should be rounded at the top not Square. Not sure if the A was different, but the kit weapon bay is too long putting the weapon bay door past the prop arch. The shape of the forward fuselage is off but most people live with it. The panel lines are soft in some spots and disappear at some spots as well. Other than that its a decent kit. As far as the aftermarket stuff goes, I am using the Eduard Big Ed set , D-mold fuselage and nacelle correction, Quickboost pylons,props,engines. Aires wheels and scratch building what I can. I will say that if you deiced to go with the D-mold fuselage correction, you cannot use the Eduard fuselage PE stiff as it corrects the shape of the forward fuselage. Hope this helps. Andy
  8. Thanks dudes, tried to get some stuff done last night but was too tired.....will try tonight for sure Andy
  9. Fellas, Started back up on this. Had to scratch build the operators stations in the back as you can see quite a bit. Still have a little bit more to do. Andy
  10. Looks good Collin. Gonna bring it down to the next meeting? Andy
  11. Matt, thanks man for the kind words. I used my Iwata HPC-BS with the .35 needle. I thin my paint very heavily, which i think allows you great control to get your lines tight and where you want them. It takes a while to fill in the areas this way but the paint lays down evenly with no orange peel or rough spots. Andy
  12. Fellas, Figured I would work on an easy project while I work on the S-2 to keep from getting bogged down. This kit falls together and before I knew it I was in paint. Anywho on to the pics: First the bird I want to do I was going to do Lanny's bird, but I wanted some kill markings so I will be doing Kyler's machine instead: Scratch built some seatbelts out of lead foil and PE buckles. Painted the cockpit with a mix to get Dark Dull Green. Added the missing oxygen hose to the right side of the cockpit sidewall with solder: Added the wire harness from shear wire and used the correct magnetos for the engine on the "M": painted the dark blue color with a mix of XF-17 and XF-1 to get the deep blue/black color, and painted the underside with Alclad duraluminum and a mix of red and shine red for the red ring on the cowling and rudder: Moved on the the "fiddly bits" before I start fading and shading the underside with different shades as well as fading the top: Andy
  13. Nice man! It came out really good. Andy
