  1. Oops, hang in there. Looks promising after all. Robert Jan
  2. Finally a build I was looking for, for a long time. I must say the Dutch scheme is very interesting IMHO, as I'm leaning towards building Dutch Indies is very interesting, loads of exotic material to go for. Every time I see this kit I'm just one step away from a click to purchase it. So far never did, first see how it builds up, well... Hope you have a good build and enjoy it. Bookmarked! Kind regards, Robert Jan
  3. Very nice work with the colors. I like the Nakajima interior green. A delicate soft green. One of my favorite greens. Beautiful work John. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  4. Jaw dropping class of a build. What a great aero plane to look at. Best regards, Robert Jan
  5. Well it is their best kit, proven once and again. I have the same kit, but decided to make a Rufe out of it. Which means it's on a shelf right now. Like your progress. Will follow along. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  6. Looks absolutely gorgeous. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  7. I think one of the best scale build Radial Engines I've ever seen. Very nice to follow along. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  8. Thanks for sharing the engine installment / maintenance photo above. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  9. Like said, superbe engine. Great to follow this build. Looking forward to the next installments. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  10. Boring? This is what counts. Love it. Regards, Robert Jan
  11. I remember a build log for this particular kit, with lots of detailing. However can not remember who did that. There were lots of improvements from the builder. Maybe someone has the link. Might as well a member of LSP. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  12. Hi Sean. Nice progress. Now I'm gonna make notes on your surface handling. When I finish my Hasegawa, waiting for the paint shop relocated and operational, I start my Italeri. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  13. The Academy was example given for a 1/48 kit that scores better in detail on pylons, (scale wise), according to the static Tamiya releases with no further improvements on those details. With so many top class builds over the years, on multiple forums, builders detailing their kits, the don't have the urge to invest in some after market for example. Not even speaking of a re-release (that probably will never come). Looking at the prices for those 'Old Kits', a real Marketing Department should have rolled out a strategy for that. Dinosaur Tamiya does not, (cultural aspect I guess), improve on 'Golden Oldies'. Back to the topic, sorry for this Waku Waku talks. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  14. Great work. But looking at the pylons comparing to the body work from the kit, I never understood the lack of detail when it comes to riveting those pylons. They never improved it in later releases.Bit of a disgrace... Even a 1/48 scale Phantom from, e.g /Academy has better detail on these parts of the plane. Keep it coming, like your work very much. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  15. A question, at what point will the shuttle come out? I guess when all wheels have touched the surface, or earlier? I dug out a started 1/48 scale F-4D to give this setup a go, before I'll get a 1/32 scale to make it work. What a great idea, really inspiring. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  16. Yes that was what I'm referring to actually. GT sometimes is a real mess. On the other hand detail is just very good sometimes, outer pylons are very good in detail. Bit of a gamble, but a pricy one also. Regards, Robert Jan
  17. Hello. I have some Gas and they fit. Needs some work cleaning, but detail is good. I did order the Aires, but as mentioned, too small in diameter. Think Eduard come very close to correct diameter, as another option, too. Edit: The Aires however did fit my Revell F-4F very well, lucky me. Regards, Robert Jan
  18. Great solution for a landing Phantom using the tail hook. Have to bookmark that. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  19. Fantastic display Eric. Great to see process on this beauty. Kind regards, Robert Jan
  20. Absolutely My god, this is exiting stuff.
  21. WOW WOW WOW Well that is... Tremendous. Seeing this fight with the plastics, it scares me to pickup one, once again. Take my hat off. Robert Jan
  22. Watch this.. As from 14:30 Starfighters. First that is shown is full metal. Richthofen JA 250.
  23. There is a moment when everybody thinks, how did I get here, why? When it is so steaming hot, all your little jobs need to be done before the sun reaches the walls and heats your house up. On the other hand, it keeps me safe and sound from Covid-19. Hey hey. So was thinking to do some on Saturday, worked out on Sunday... Yes this is the same opening as with Smith me Starfighter build log. It is my sixts year living over here, never been so hot! Phantom time? Yes! What really bugs me are the little details Revell 'forgets'. glad to have some Tamiya spares for that. same same, needs some work, but results please me. Cut from the spare intakes and replaced on Revell. This is the underside. Top side right And left side. Now I need to remove one panel line on both sides and adjust some details, so it matches the Tamiya scribing details for both parts / sides. Big improvement. I call it a day! Hope you all like it, Robert Jan
