  1. Super smooth paint finish, Eric ! (Although, on my ipad screen, the red has a pinkish hue that does not look too « italian », but then, between lighting, camera and screen rendition, the probabilities of sameness to the original are nil ...) Hubert
  2. To slow down the polymerisation of CA (not block it completely, mind you), you can also store your tubes/bottles in an airtight box, in which you have also added some of these silica gel sachets aimed at trapping moisture, and that you find in almost any packaged goods imported from PRC ... And then, even better, store the box in a dry, cool place, like your fridge (plus it gives you an opportunity to grab a beer each time you want to glue something ) Why ? because CA setting is usually triggered by moisture in the ambient air (and therefore blowing on an assembly which uses CA is not a completely stupid idea ... ) Hubert BTW, the airtight box will also show that CA fumes are getting out of seemingly tightly closed bottles, and whiten the inside of the box over time ...
  3. At least it is the year, not your age ... But it also assumes there will still be 20p coins until 2450 .... Hubert
  4. Ok, then what about that Dr 1 on the Dolphin boxart ? Hubert
  5. The same ones that are selling T-shirts ? Hubert
  6. And they also have a deck for the 1/96 Constitution, and the 1/96 Kearsage (so you guessed these are not the ones I ordered ) Hubert
  7. I just wish you hadn’t mentioned the Scaledecks’ name ... Now I have two of their decks on their way to home ... and might ask them about doing a 1/200 Mikasa deck ! Keep it coming Hubert
  8. So, tell me, do you really LIKE the Harrier ? Nice (and prolific by my own abysmally poor standards) collection Hubert
  9. It also answers THE other big question : « what do you need instructions for ? » Neat work Hubert
  10. The Bs and Ds left the factory NMF until 1962, IIRC. On the field, it took longer than what is written in most books for Project Lookalike to be applied to all airframes. Even in Europe, where the corrosion and watertightness issues of the NMF appeared and prompted the silver paint solution of Project Lookalike, you still had NMF aircrafts as far as 1963/1964. I certainly remember pics of NMF F-105s in Bitburg and Chaumont dated 1963 or 1964. As for the stores on the above pic, I’d venture they were painted silver, from my interpretation of the pic. Hubert
  11. Good job on this one. Especially well done cleaning up the joint at the wing leading edge, without loosing the corrugations. Love the end result ! Hubert
  12. Well done on both models ! Of course the one in the fisrt pic is much better, considering its complexity ... Looking forward for your next one (plastic or resin thing I mean ) Hubert
  13. Great work ! And yes, you need to solder this brass tubes frame Hubert
