    The order of my interests changes regularly between Aircraft 1/48,1/32,1/24;model cars,occasionallyarmorand ships.I also mess about with full size neat cars.<br> Come to think of it,I like all big boys toys. Been building models for more than 50 years.they sometimes turn out not too bad. Seeing all of the great models on this site is setting me up for more large scale A/C.I'm looking forward to the Fisher P anther I have ordered.

  1. Pardon my ignorance,but nobody has mentioned the horrible wing problem I have seen pics of, Have the wings been corrected on newer releases? The shape of the front fuselage and clear part looks correctable without too much sweat. Just the humble opinion of a guy who doesn't have the space or funds for what looks like an impressive kit. cheers Ernie
  2. Without a doubt this is a nicely built model. Nicely finished,subtly weathered with great decal work! I'm absolutely NOT a rivet counter,as all of my models would show .However If I could afford this kit I would somehow have to do something about the wings.
  3. The Corsair is definitely one of my favourites,have many builtand in the stash But why all of the fuss over just another one I find very puzzling. Just wonderin'. Cheers Ernie.
  4. I wish we could return to calling this great color SKY ,as it was always known. The S was added by the U.S manufacturer for a different compound of the color SKY. The same color Maybe somebody can add more info on this. the color is SKY. Let's not change history............cheers bigern
  5. Not my scale, but a great looking model..... cheers bigern
  6. Very ,very nice! ! like to do this type of thing myself. But,never get to your fine standardsl cheers Ernie
  7. Oh my!! Very nice in silver,well done! cheers bigern
  8. Gotta agree with " hooked for life". Seems to me that if I could afford this kit[also my favorite cat] I would be surprised initially,but would use my modeling skills to overcome any fixable faults and feel lucky that kit is on the market. As I am sure you will eventually. As they say S#$#*^T happens. bigern c

    It looks really good. Nice clean build,,,,,,,, cheers bigern
  10. The Revell Corsair is a great kit if you like and can handle the challenge upgrading and scratch building . I have many built with different levels of details added. Yes my stash contains a Tamiiya Corsair and Spitfire, truly beautifull kits, Too nice to cut up and hide all those detail parts! But from a few paces back a Revell version looks just as good to me .So,for a lot more modeling fun and a LOT less money I choose to go this route! Only my personal choice.. Have fun whatever your choice. Cheers big ern
  11. Birdcage glass......Anyone have pics showing the 3 bracing bars (per side) from the side "glass" to the concave fuselage panel directly behind the seat? Has anybody added these? I have not done this yet........But I do have one in line for paint .....Hmmmmmmmm!! cheers ,,,the other Ernie
  12. Agree 100% with the "over the top comments" So are you being kind with the nice job,great finish,good weathering ,etc. I wonder. Is it just not PC to add a mild negative/constructive comment,along with praise ? Cheers Ernie
  13. Great stuff Russ! I like your style..........cheers Ernie
  14. Absolootly Faboooolus !!! cheers , bigern
