  1. I think that you'll enjoy it here, there's so much info and advice to get. I've just started the same build, a Tamiya f-16 aggressor, I'm thinking of the flanker splinter scheme. For help on the Viper, I'd look in the WIP section, there are amazing builds that are now complete, you'd be amazed on what some modellers can achieve!
  2. Thanks Marcel, I've got a GT resin intake, but when I opened it up, all the sections that are molded to form the main landing gear well front wall was broken. I do have a zactomodels set for the Academy kit, which is awesome. Just need to get a kit to use it on. Juggernaut, I don't think that I'll be able to address all the differences to a block 30, I do have a set of landing gear doors from the thunder kit (I don't even know how I have them, I've never purchased that kit!), and aftermaket wheels and stiffener plates, some scratch building for the lights, and a few other pieces. No doubt there will be areas I can't fix, like the landing gear. But I'll adjust what I can, and hope it's enough! Thanks for the interest.
  3. I've been wanting to start an Aggressor Viper for awhile now, collecting decals and bits and pieces of aftermarket details, now it's time for a fresh start! Having followed the awesome builds by Marcel, it's not hard to see the attraction to the aggressor birds, they're colourful, mean looking and they catch the eye. Theres still more yo get, including zactomodels sidewinders and maybe aim-120's. I'm sure that there will be more along the way, but I'll get started. I have the Tamiya kit, so I'll build a big mouthed viper, I have plenty of decals for a standard mouth bird, and the KASL exhausts, but it's hard to find an Academy F-16, but on line some hobby stores have future releases of academy vipers with ANG markings. Fingers crossed! My biggest problem is picking what set of decals to use. My tossing up between the Arctic Aggressor during 2008 by Afterburner, the arctic Aggressors during 2017 by Two Bobs and the Blue Splinter during 2018 by Two Bobs. To start off I'm just going to get started on some of the smaller bits and pieces that will go into the build. Hopefully I'll have more to come soon, and with a decision on what markings I'll use. Thanks for looking.
  4. Simply awesome work, just another example of the level of work being shown on this website, I'd feel out of place showing my work here. Next level stuff here, I'm looking forward to seeing the paint job getting done!
  5. Awesome as always Marcel, the display cabinet must look complete with all of the F-16 aggressors! Looking forward to watching your Tomcat masterpiece come together (my favourite aircraft) .
  6. My mind is blown! This must be the 'perfect' model, or you have a very good shrink-ray.
  7. Another masterpiece Chuck, I think we all knew that it was going to be good, but wow, mind blowing, and from a 'changeling' kit. But I can't believe how good those scratch built intakes are!
  8. Just awesome, you keep taking things to a new level Chuck. I can't wait to see what's next, guessing it'll be a prop aircraft next as per your normal rotation. My fingers are crossed for a corsair!
  9. Great work, I can't wait to see what you do with the engine, the newer tamiya models really do have amazing details as is.
  10. Thanks for feedback, I'm currently on a short break from the Arizona, and have my 1/200 Uss Missouri sitting there, that thing is Huge! Why build 1 large battleship when you can build 2? I think that when you're building big kits you need a clean area. As you can see I've used the Hobby Zone sets, and I can't recommend them enough, absolutely fantastic. I plan to work on my Mighty Mo for a few months, and then I'll be back on my Arizona. It was my wife that bought me the Uss Missouri after our last trip to Hawaii and Pearl Harbor, and I was feeling pretty bad she'd spent so much money on me, and it was sitting in the stash, I had to make a start on it, thanks babe!
  11. It's great to see an update, I've been looking at this build thread a lot lately because I have just started a F-4J, with what will be jolly Rogers markings, and the modelling that you've done here is amazing. I love the scheme, the paint and weathering, and in my opinion, the preshading is spot on, excellent work!
  12. Now I'll be keeping an eye out for a cheap warthog, looking forward to the new parts Gary.
  13. Like others, I'm very lucky. My wife has let me set up a hobby room in a spare bedroom, with a large new desk, TV, blueray player etc. She has even gone as far as to buy me a 1/200 uss Missouri after a holiday to Hawaii and trip to Pearl Harbor. I've got a keeper!
  14. Having done several hornets, I've used both the Rhino and d mold intakes, both are way better than the kit parts as they are way undersized at the intake face. Rhino only sell on ebay and aren't available all the time, D mold would be my first choice, very good intakes, and you can buy from their website. I'm about to get a set for a f-4 phantom, currently they're on a break, and not taking orders, but will be from late August.
  15. If you do a search in the WIP section for Hornet, you'll find a build done by clumseydude on an Australian 20th anniversary hornet, and that will be a really good starting place for Australian hornets. Good luck with the build, the 1/32 hornets do look daunting when you open the box, but are a straight forward builds, even with aftermarket cockpits, landing gear wells etc.
