  1. Bravo John. Another excellent production and forgive me for forgetting your Corsair! Regards, Kent
  2. Great stuff matey! Maybe time to weave the magic on a Tamiya Spitfire or Corsair? Regards
  3. Bravo John, Well recovered and back on track. Regards, Kent
  4. I get used to marvelling at your Luftwaffe builds and you go all Oriental on me. Great stuff John, looking very nice so far. Regards, Kent
  5. Lovely work matey, I have come to expect and receive nothing less. Regards,
  6. I have a copy of the e-book and it is an invaluable reference. Hard copy enquiry submitted. Regards,
  7. That is coming along nicely. Taking notes and saving photos! Regards,
  8. It is a pity about the Eduard seat as it looked very good. The Aires set and the extra work you have done is equally good (if not better). I shall be watching on as I have a couple of these to build someday. Regards,
  9. That right there is some freaky deaky magnetic work! Liking it, liking it a lot.
  10. Great work John, Nice finds on the AM front, Master barrels are great and the ejection chutes are a pleasant surprise! Regards, Kent
  11. Bravo John, Stunning attention to detail and exemplary work. Regards,
  12. Primer coat...the great revealer! Shows the great detail on the resin parts and some do overs on the assembly front. Good news on the fuselage to wing joins, not so much on the front windscreen, spine and belly. Some obvious (to me) flat spots on the underside. The spine needs addressing at each lap joint and the very fine seam to be reinstated on both top and bottom as per my references. Some PPP for the windscreen and rear windows (although that might not happen as the sliding section should effectively hide those) and a small blemish just forward of the windscreen. Good point is the forward fuselage is nice and smooth: Regards,
  13. F6F-3 progress. The inner wing assemblies have been permanently attached with two part epoxy. Perfect plastic putty on the wing root seams and a couple of other small blemishes. The white and black dots on the spine are 1mm punched discs to replace the light mounts which I sanded off. I have fashioned a sprue holding device for primer and painting by drilling through the engine hub. This will be cut off flush when the engine is mounted. Next step is priming with AK Grey primer and micro filler: Regards,
  14. Mindblowingly great stuff. Other words fail me. Regards,
  15. Welcome back, Working on the cockpit. Gunsight glass added and canopies masked inside and out. The kit doesn’t have a mirror so I found some PE mirrors and used my Molotow pen for the first time. The wiring harness is now in place: The fuselage is joined and ready for cleanup. I have affixed the front windscreen with its rear view mirror. The windscreen piece was a tad wide at the rear edges so I removed some material from the inside and blended it in. My plan now is to seal the cockpit with tape to keep the dust etcetera out. The engine wiring has been completed and another wash of AK Neutral Grey applied. It will get a Matt finish later on. Test fitting it and the cowling show a fairly good fit and look. The engine will go aside now until final construction. The cowling will also be left unfixed so I can paint the scheme in full remove it and add the exhausts prior to fixing it for good: The cockpit has now been sealed with tape masks and masking liquid. I used the extra canopy pieces to trace the shapes fore and aft and got a fair shaped mask. Then fit and sealed. The resin inner wing sections are both free from their casting blocks. I then fitted the kit MLG components to the wing inners. The wings are dry fit into place: Thanks for looking, Regards,
