  1. Sorry but this is going to be too late to help you now, but here goes. I have used Mr Surfacer on the wings of a couple of Mustangs ( Dragon and Meng ) which had ‘ rivet’ holes. I used Mr Surfacer 500 brushed on thickly, and then rubbed down until just the rivets were filled. Very laborious and time consuming but it worked well. John
  2. This is just getting better and better. I was lucky enough to be allowed to climb into the cockpit of the prototype some years ago and the thing that immediately impressed me was the size of the rudder pedal structures. I had always thought that they were over-scale on most kits, but not so, I think they were built by shipbuilders! John
  3. You’re weathering is absolutely ‘ in scale ‘ I wish I could do that rather than my usual result of either too little or too much. John
  4. Great progress on the cockpit. If you deleted the sprue from the last photos of the seat it would be difficult to distinguish from a real one. John
  5. Great start, this is making me want to break out my Trumpeter P47. John
  6. Great looking cockpit. Hope it’s not too late but the two ‘ wavy ‘ shapes behind the seat mounting are plastic hoses for the cockpit heating/ventilation system and should be semi-gloss black. Sorry if you already knew that but just hadn’t got around to painting them. John
  7. Seconded, you’ve done a great job. I’m just at the decalling stage with my 1/48 version, I hope I can do as convincing a job with the weathering as you. John
  8. Also watching closely, I’ve always been interested in the Banff Wing. Slightly disappointed at the lack of RPs though, I was hoping that you’d show us how to make the double rail mounting.
  9. An excellent build, and not slow at all by my standards. Good luck with the house move, always a stressful time. We moved house and country nearly 15 years ago and I had to drastically reduce my stash, which was very difficult for me.
  10. It just gets better and better! John
  11. Certainly does! As for the weathering, I think it would be quite difficult to ‘ go too far ‘ on a Korean War machine. Looking forward to it. John
  12. Looks to me like you’ve got the colour just right. Good luck with the shark-mouth. John
  13. I have also found that the Extreme Metal paints are durable, but I don’t have any AK Matt Aluminium (yet). I am going to try Tamiya Metallic Grey with a little Sky Grey on my paint mule, both on grey and black primers, but it won’t be for a while yet. Looking forward to seeing your results. John
  14. From ‘photos I’ve seen it looks like they used both sizes of tank. Interesting point on the colour, I’d assumed that the ‘ yellow ‘ones had been painted in the squadron colour, but maybe not. Have you decided on a metallic grey colour for the airframe yet? John
  15. I also have a Badger 200 airbrush, which is 30+ years old, I thought that they were pretty indestructible. I like what you’ve done with the anti-glare panel and the wheel wells. John
