  1. While we're on the topic of unusual paint schemes, check this out: http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/Gal2..._Wilder/00.shtm Have fun!
  2. Peter, those improvements to the nose profile make a world of difference. I'll be using your build as reference when I build my OH-58A. Thanks for posting.
  3. Thanks for the kind words, Harvey. About my avitar - before I became a Marine, I was in the Air Force. It is actually the squadron patch for the 1st Tactical Reconnaissance Squadron that was based at RAF Alconbury until the unit was disbanded in 1987. They flew the RF-4C Phantom II. The patch shows a cigar-chomping bee (due to the RF-4 being based on a fighter type) flying stinger-first with lightning bolts coming from it. In one hand the bee is holding a camera, the other hand is clenched in a fist. I chose it as my avitar due to its obscurity, but also it's a way of keeping a the memory of the 1st alive.
  4. Excellent build, Matt. That finish looks phenomenal. Best regards, Clint
  5. This is the 21st Century Toys 1/32 F4U-1A Corsair I started earlier this year. It is being built wheels up as a ceiling hanger for my son's room. It is brush-painted w/ Testors Model Master enamels except for the white, which is acrylic. It's about 90% done, I just need to finish the canopy and the underside of the starboard wing, as well as complete the weathering. The whip antenna is a bristle from a brush and the wire antenna is copper wire taken from an 18 ga. lamp cord.
  6. In-progress pics of Scott's build can be found in the "Articles" section of this site at the following link: http://www.largescaleplanes.com/articles/S...F4UCorsair.html Also, his galleries can be found here: http://www.wright-wing.com/sm.htm, and here: http://www.skywriters.net/Gallery/scottm.htm. Phenomenal stuff.
