    Jorge,
       I've got to hand it to you for the tire modification. I'd never think of anything like that, and the end result is perfect. 
     
       Your NMF is really looking good. I'm also suprised at the procedure you're using. Nearly everyone including me does a basic coat of one of the Alcad 2 Aluminums, then masks and does the panels, but you've gone a completely different route, and it really works fantastically. I just might very well use if for my next (when ever that is) NMF aircraft build.

    Unbelievable  I've never seen engine detailing taken to this level before. Then again, I've never seen a 1/18 Jug. Your build is one for the books for sure.

    Jay,
       I just read through your entire scratch engine build, and I'm simply blown away  The level of craftsmanship that you've displayed is just beyond what the everyday plastic modeler could even comprehend.

        the engine installed in the enclosed fuselage really looks tremendous. The amount of work to bring it to that stage is almost beyond comprehension.

        I just finished reading through your entire build thread, and I'm really impressed with both the HPH kit, with your modeling skills, and your knowledge of the subject matter.  I'm still on the fence about buying the kit, as I've never built a resin kit before. Spending $270 on a 1st time effort.

    My brother has been waiting for this kit since word of it 1st came out. I've been on the fence about it, but being a Grumman fan, I'm pretty sure I'm going to spend the cash and buy it.

    Gotta say that the fuel tanks do have that rubbery look to them. If you do revisit them, what will you do to make them even more like rubber?

      The level of detail, is just amazing. Everything is finally coming together and points to an outstanding display piece. .The landing gear really looks good, especially after you've finished the rigging.

       a most impressive paint scheme, coupled with some of the most realistic weathering I've seen on a well used operational F4U-1 Birdcage.

    Ernie,
      Pete and I use to ride our bikes there all the time and peer through the chain link fence that runs along Stewart Ave. I still remember having the film from my Kodak Brownie camera confiscated by the security guards. They did return the processed film and pics, so in the long run I got free processing and printing which must have been charged to the gov't. This was around 1964-5 when we were all of 16 years old.  Funny how I can still remember that, but I can't remember to take the trash out on the correct nights.

    Wolfe,
       Outstanding detailing on a level that as Chuck would say, kicks it up a few notches.  You method of leaving small parts on a piece of sprue till detailed is something that I should print out and tape to the front of one of my desk lamps. I can't count how many times I've ruined a tiny part trying to drill through it and hold it with either my fingers or tweezers,  or only to have the part pop off and fly off to some area of the model room, bounce on the carpet, and never be found during the build.

      Decals look great.  You really don't need to go to heavy with oil washes as you've created quite a realistic operationally weathered finish from just looking at these pictures.

     Even if I wanted to join you with the USS Arizona, I don't have enough years left, nor retirement funds to even consider a build of this magnitude.
