    1/32 PCM Fw 190A-4

    Not often l post a build here anymore. Quite frankly takes me a while these days to finish anything due to general life getting in the way. l managed to get this one done as the renovation industry is slow this time of year hence why l have time . This is the older Pacific Coast Model boxing of the Fw 190A-1/2/3 without the new A-4 conversion. Fortunately l have an old Haseagawa kit in an old Revell rebox version that l took the engine out of and bit and pieces for this build. l did it in the markings of an unknown pilot that flew this aircraft during the Battle of Kursk. For the BMW 801 engine l started out with this oldie that used to be in the old Hasegawa offering l made this engine with a lot of modifications and bits and pieces of brass, plastic wire and solder The wing gun bays were also scratch built . l used the MDC 20 mm cannons in th wings Eduard PE landing flaps that were meant for the Hasegawa A-5 kit which l believe this PCM kit was based on Thus here is the end result. This project was without it's problems with solutions but to be honest if l was to do Another PCM 190A l would just build it straight out of the box with scratchbuilt flaps only. Do not mind the work but l think l will stick to kits with either the engine already there like the new Revell offering. l have done other kits with some scratch built interiors but this one extended the envelop for me a bit. Hacker.. 190A-4 dusted, bench cleanup in progress, beer in hand *hic*

    1/18 P51C Mustang "Lopes Hope the 3rd"

    Eventually you will be scribing the gun and ammo bay doors. A question that has plague my mind is the size between the B and the D. Upon visual inspection the bays and the doors seem to be the same size between the two which my luck isn't so. Any clarification on this and is there measurements to go by? Hacker

    Fokker Dr. I 'Skeletal'

    l started a D 7 while back but found out the draws l was using were wrong. Been looking for a good set of wing rib draws so l can make a correct set Hacker

    FYl about Canada Post strike

    since the internet there are no more letter, bills are sent electronically,and most of the mail these days is either packages or junk mail. I see some of their issues but both sides always fight it seems. One wants more and one does not want to give anything. There never seems to be a middle ground. l hate to see anyone loss a job but letter carriers are going the way of the milkman and the bread delivery. Neither side can come up with a plan for the future as one is stubborn as the other. l just do not like being held hostage at christmas as we rely on the post for cheap parcel delivery. As for getting things l never have had a problem. It always seems to get through. Just seems certain areas have problems while others do not Hacker

    P-51 B Mustang III

    I was debating whether to buy this kit or not but it seems to build well for you. l take it you used the engine but sealed it all in and not used the open cowl option? There is just something about a B mustang in RAF colours. I wonder if the RAF did the same practices and their USAAF counterparts and puttied all the seams and rivets in? Hacker
  11. Waiting for those nacelles to be put on. l got a smaller scale model l am doing and that is the area in need of corrections. Keep up the good work and go have a beer Hacker
  12. l am interested to see how those nacelles go on and particularly now the wheel wells go together and the placement of the parts Hacker

    P51A hobbycraft 1/32 scale

    a very hard kit to come by. Any Evil bay ones are very expensive. It is funny though as a vast majority of former HobbyCraft kits are being molded by Academy so you wonder where the early mustangs have gotten off too? hacker...bringing up those all important questions
