SinuheH reacted to lawman56 in B-17 Aftermarket
I think a wider range of decal options, the aforementioned resin wheels, possibly some brass gun barrels and crew members in various poses would be nice. I'm sure there will be an abundance of photo etch once this monster actually heads out.
Up until the last year or so, my model skills have been focused on 1/35th scale armor. With the sudden explosion of many wonderful 1/32 aircraft, I've started to diversify. After all, if I can build and weather 1/35 armor, then aircraft of a similar size will be a challenge, but not an impossibilty!
With the release of the HK B-25, and soon the B-17, I would really love to see figures in their crew station poses, as well as various other poses. Personally, I think to have gunners in their turrets would be interesting.
By the way, this is my first post to the LSP forums, and would like to say thanks to all who post here. My decision to start into 1/32 aircraft was largely decided by the information I gleaned from this website. Especially the reviews.
SinuheH reacted to Daywalker in Hasegawa J2M3 Raiden Finished 9/5/13
It's been a while since I have been able to get to this one, but finally now an update! I finished the office at last, and am now prepping the fuselage for assembly. So far, an exquisite kit to build. The cockpit color is the Tamiya XF-71, and it is OOB except for a pair of Eduard lap belts. The instrument detail was hand painted. Thanks for looking in!
SinuheH reacted to Tnarg in Just in time for the WW1 GB
I have the spark plugs and Mercedes D.III details, and they are worth it to use them versus any alternative. That Oberusel is definitely the way to go versus Roden's engine for a Dr.I.
I am working on a Roden Nieuport 24 and the plugs replaced the ones in their engine just because I couldn't glue the cylinders together without removing the molded on bumps representing plugs.
SinuheH got a reaction from geedubelyer in Just in time for the WW1 GB
A rather nice set of details by Taurus:
That engine and spark plugs look great.
SinuheH got a reaction from Derek B in Eclipse Model Design - New releases for February 2013
Nice stuff Derek!
Will take a closer look at your other goodies.
SinuheH reacted to HADman in Hungarian Bf-109 G-10
This Type one of my big favarits, and hence I'm glad, that i finished from this kit. This "white 4" are one of the Hungarian Messerschmitts what was not with black code. We have less Photo archives from these "colours" numbers, hence I thought, I will build the "White 4 ". This not yet in decal, hence I made only mask for this project.
the kit: Hasegawa
Gun: Master Model
The mask: own making
This is the original photo from my friend ,Sándor Fülöp:

SinuheH reacted to LSP_Kevin in Cockpit upgrade for Matchbox/Revell 1/32 Spitfire 22/24 released...
Thanks for those photos Richard. They also perfectly illustrate the deep trench that Matchbox moulded for the canopy slide rails (well, they're not rails really, but they're not trenches either!). If I were to build this kit again, I'd make up a liquid plastic concoction (sprue off-cuts in a jar of liquid cement), and fill everything!
