    Testors

    My apologies, don't want to derail thread further.

    Testors

    It may actually be some very good marketing done quietly. Look how many people are talking about Testors and going out to buy the paints for fear of losing them..... That's a whole lot of publicity for an extremely cheap price.
  3. I'm getting ready to start a reconnaissance Mustang and I was curious about armament. I know they kept the 50 cals, but the under wing stores is what I'm wondering. Tamiya has you put rocket tubes on, and I'd like to use them. Did the recon birds carry the rocket tubes in real life?
  4. Well, I've flown a 100 hours in just the last few weeks all over the country and I can confidently say the weather isnt always cold at 10,000'. Thats not even counting strong temperature inversions where its warmer at 10,000 than on the ground. And countless other weather phenomena that affect all the temps at varying altitudes. Can it be very cold at 10k, of course! But it can also be quite warm. Back on topic, I look forward to this kit very much.
  5. Not really true. With a standard lapse rate of 2 degrees per thousand feet it can be relatively warm at 10,000'. And lately it's been ISA+10 to +15 in much of the country so that makes it even warmer at 10,000'.

    Next up is to demilitarize the aft cockpit. Once I verify the fit, I'll go back and add Archer rivets.

    Engine is basically together. Ignore the black firewall, it'll be white soon enough. Also added the gratuitous "concept" shot.

    Ok, progress is being made. RB carried a red colored engine so I've started getting that painted. I'm now working on painting the extra equipment that attaches to the core in their various colors. I've also gone ahead and cropped the wings in preparation for adding the racing wingtips. I haven't decided yet on the flat or flaired tips as RB carried both. No going back now!

    Excellent information Brian. I've got someone who may 3D design and print them for me, but if not that's a great way to tackle it.
  10. I've enjoyed stepping away from military birds and have gotten into building racers. After I completed the Bardahl Special build, I went back to Draw Decals to shop around. As soon as I came across Risky Business I knew I had my next build. Super shiny, plus enough modifications to set it apart but not a complete rebuild. Heres the scheme I'll be building: The fuselage will be foil, and the white wings will be a new car type paint a friend pointed out. I'll modify the cockpit to remove the military equipment, create the pointed spinner, and find a way to add the flaired racing wingtips. My hope is to have it ready for San Marcos. Now I'm just waiting for my Tamiya Mustang to arrive from Tamiya USA.
  11. This is why is buy Trumpeter kits.
  12. Some kits are pretty darn good. I very much enjoyed building the P-47 Razorback. I'm enjoying their Dauntless right now. I've also trashed many Trumpeter kits out of frustration. I think it's very kit specific.
  13. Gunze silver as well. It works great for doped aluminum and should work for this. If not, I'll try the full aluminum.
  14. Thank you. So the fuselage would have a shimmer to it, but not metal. Think I have just the paint color for that.
