  1. So now for plan B. Plan B involves using something in my stash for while. I actually have a Rutman P-51B, and it has a vacform canopy, BUT that's not what I plan to use. The vacform canopy has a resin mold included with it, so I plan to vacform the canopy using that. On further digging in the box, it turn out the rutman kit has 2 canopies. So, I decided to sacrifice one, to give an idea where would I go about this. My initial plan is to use the vacform to create the clam windows, and possibly the main 3 part canopy. So I cutout the original revell area and am now slowly but s
  2. Thanks for the info! Here are where I am now, Initially I wanted to use the revell clam windows as the windows are correct in size and shape. At first the plan was to attach the clam windows to the fuselage cutout. Bad idea. The part does exactly fit and requires sanding and filling to make it level, and polishing to make it clear again, ASIDE from removing those nubs revell added to the canopy. And I just ended up with a cloudy window.
  3. So I decided to start cutting up a revell P-51D and revell B to make a razorback mustang . I followed these builds as an inspiration and provide the best ideas how: So I decided to use the old revell P-51B as the donor of the razorback. Remarkable for an old 60's kit the P-51B is actually accurate in outline, with exception of the nose area, probably due to the engine included in the kit. I mean the old kit wing has the same laminar wing shape as the new one, something that the trumpeter kit missed. So using Junpei Temma's profiles of the P-51
  4. Good job! Something I'm hoping to do with my 3 year old boy in a few years! Build kits with me!
  5. there is one. I saw images of it built up. My money is still on the 1/24 Revell Huey.
  6. do you have the patterns for the bulkheads on this build?
  7. thanks for the replies guys! Looks like no sirens
  8. That's Radu Brinzan. I have to agree. That hurricane is truly a gem of a build.
  9. Posting a current shelf queen build. Started the kit back in 2016, but got too busy, and the build took a back burner. At the time, the kit was built, and I just need to put together the different parts together plus rigging after. So with the pandemic ongoing, I had time to finish this kit. Anyways, here WIP At the moment, I'm already rigging it, and I'm done! I used 2lb fishing line threaded thru an albion alloy microtube. I made my own eyelets using the fine wire from a small kitchen sieve. :-) At this po
  10. thanks for the tip! am planning to use plasticard to extend the vertical tail.
  11. NOW I REMEMBER! :-) A MILLION THANKS! PS: I also have the SHAR Vacform set. :-)
  12. So, we are still on quarantine here in Manila, Philippines, so I decided to start a build. I have the OLD revell harrier GR1, and I have had this kit for almost 10 years in my stash, along with a resin nose conversion to a GR3. I totally forgot the one who made this, but I want to give a shout of thanks! Anyways, here we go. The resin nose fits perfect, and provides that characteristic look of the snoopy nosed harrier. Generally the Revell harrier is correct in "outline", but requires corrections and added details. Foremost is the exhaust blister fairin
  13. Thanks man! I saw your post! Trumpeter really screwed their kit so bad we can't even use it to correct another kit. :-(
