  1. for some inspiration.... look at the restoration Walk around at the IPMS.NL site here: https://www.ipms.nl/walkarounds/walkaround-jets/2331-walkaround-horten-229
  2. Also check out the various B-24 walk arounds at the IPMS.NL at https://www.ipms.nl/walkarounds/walkaround-vliegtuigen-props/614-walkaround-b24-liberator
  3. hi Paul, At least I am thankfull that you, Suzy and loved ones are OK. Thousands of miles away in Amsterdam the fires in Paradise were on the Dutch Networks, almost every day since the fires began. Just horrible. I can only hope that you find energy and drive to proceed further and look forward, All the Best from a big fan (and modeller), Meindert
  4. this is very sad news. Glad that Paul and family got out. Wish them all the strength in these terrible days. Meindert
  5. when it comes to "clear coloured" paints, I have the usual jars of the Tamiya clear paints like X-23 clear red, X-27 clear blue etc. But I never seem to be able to thin it well with the Tamiya thinner X-20 and paint bigger areas like a canopy without uneven results. And the paint in the jars get sticky very quickly after a few months and become almost unusable. Airbrushing the clears is for me almost impossible. Is this something others recognize with these Tamiya Clears ? and is there a way to better use and preserve these clear Tamiya paints? or any alternative clear paints?
  6. now next we need..... is a 1/32 injection moulded kit.... (there was once an old Combat Model vac....)
  7. Hi "GDW" thank for the Gunze info, very good. I also never heard of their Levelling Thinner and will buy a bottle at my local shop to try. By the way: I am a big fan of Gunze Sangyo acrylic paints and they are my preferred brand. Meindert
  8. Hundreds of (T) F-104G walk around photos can be seen at the IPMS.NL website (particularly Dutch RNethAF F-104): https://www.ipms.nl/walkarounds/walkaround-jets/1442-walkaround-lockheed-f104
  9. I also seen something else here... what is that sort of bracket?/ in front of the airbrake? you can even see it's shadow..... never seen it before....
  10. hi, great model in progress! And wonderfull subject! also figure out the "sheen / colour" of the canopy, often tinted "smoke / gold" sheen. Something that varies on older F-16 Blocks but on modern Blocks often seems to have been applicated.
  11. Great modelling! .... and interesting to read the history of the MiGs in Angola (and the related Cuban stuff).
  12. FYI: have just published an extensive KA-6D walkaround of Cees at the IPMS.NL Netherlands walkaround pages, may be of use: https://www.ipms.nl/walkarounds/walkaround-jets/560-walkaround-a6-intruder
  13. Completed the 1/32 Kitty Hawk OV-10 Bronco kit. Finished as OV-10E Fuerza Aerea Venezolana, 1991 check out my modelling report here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/bronco-32/bronco-32-1.htm Hope you like it!
  14. Hi Indeed, I use MicroMark from the USA raised rivet decals. They are very GOOD value for money. Intended for modelrailroads they can be used for our larger aircraft scales as well. On the sheets you also get different patterns such as rounded lines. I used them on several models, such as the T-2 Buckeye. An impression here: https://designer.home.xs4all.nl/models/buckeye/buckeye-3.htm (Currently also using a lot of these on the 1/32 Kitty Hawk Bronco. An update on my website on this kit will follow soon).
