  1. Love this! I don't envy the building of the undercarriage though!
  2. Boy, that det cord can't be fun to paint, even with masks. I have to wonder if it would be easy enough to sand it off and add one made from wire or something?
  3. I forsee another Best of Show award coming your way!
  4. I've really enjoyed following this build. I've never been a big fan of Navy jets, mostly due to lack of exposure--I live nearer to an air force base--but this has given me a newfound appreciation of their beauty.
  5. I'd use a step drill bit for the landing light; I've used them successfully on styrene sheet without grabbing up to 7/8" diameter, and the holes are clean and circular.
  6. That's interesting how the spent shell casings and link chutes are interconnected between the guns, I never really thought about how that was done before. Re: The task at hand, I'd agree with Barry about using sheet brass or aluminum.
  7. Awesome! I attempted the old Combat Models 1/48 conversion for the Monogram B-24J in about 1981. It was my only attempt at anything vac-formed. The nacelles defeated me, but I had the rest completed. Can't wait to see what you do with this!
  8. Wow, just read through this entire build. You're doing some top notch work on this kit!

  11. That's a lot of chain inside the cowl. Is that what actuates the cowl flaps?
