  1. Built completely out of the box with Xtradecal decals to give me a colorful test aircraft from China Lake. Simple build, kit fits very well, so I if you can live with the funny looking intake...give it a try. It will be going into my display at work, so didn't really want to weather it much. Will be putting on some drop tanks donated from a member of the boards...thanks (the kit drop tanks are just terrible). Cheers Collin

  3. I’ll be watching as well. She’s an underrepresented kits in 32nd. T-2 was a very stable and fun aircraft to fly. Not a ton of power, but enough to get maneauvers started. Great vis from the cockpit and spinning her was just a blast. Cheers Collin
  4. I have this kit whispering to me from the shelf.....”build me” (along with his pals: PCM Spit IXc and XIVc). Nice looking Tempest, can’t wait to see her complete. Cheers Collin
  5. Are we ever going to see this kit? now back to my morning coffee. Cheers Collin
  6. I like it...I am going to give it a try on my next project. Cheers Collin
  7. For sure a must buy. Can’t wait to see the aftermarket decals that could be made for the Zulu. Cheers Collin
  8. Started this kit back in November 2018, thought it was going to be an easy OOB build....boy was I wrong. Anyone who has built this kit knows the intakes are the worst...and the wing to fuselage join is just a PITA. I struggled with this build all Winter, messing up some of the painting (hurried my masking and made the red a little too red). Overall it's a 3 footer for the display case it will go in. Honestly I don't recommend this kit.
  9. Looked great here in Washington DC, nice copper-colored orb just floating there. Never gets old watching a lunar eclipse. Cheers Collin
  10. How I tackled it. Freehand thinned paint and patience. Go for it!! Cheers Collin
  11. Looks like that aftermarket pit on eBay is no longer being sold. Bummer. I’ll have to do some research, but if the kits comes with the PR canopy dome, maybe all that’s needed is some holes cut in the belly with some glass covers and boom you have a two stage PR bird. Cheers Collin
  12. Watching closely. I have an itch for the two stage HK model myself. Want to do a blue bird with invasion stripes. From the kit it looks like they have a meto bird from Wyton you can do. Anyone out there make any conversion kit to create a full on PR variant of the two-stage HK kit? Cheers Collin
  13. Isn’t there an in-progress with pics out there yet? Collin
  14. Get GE (meaning the full application and the ID Card) and it becomes the only number you input when you travel, which gives you pre-check. That part works. Now planning on using you GE tonget back in the country but you spouse puts you in to the mobile passport app as you deplane, punch in the gut your GE is no longer a valid path anymore. Last summer bit by that coming back from Europe. Cheers Collin
  15. So when do we get some P-40F Checkertail Clan decals headed our way? Cheers Collin.
