  1. Andy, It's looking sharp! What brand(s) of paint are you using? Tom
  2. Brian, Got it, thanks--that makes good sense. Cheers, Tom
  3. Thanks Gaz! It has been a really fun build so far. Hopefully just a few more things done to see it through. Cheers, Tom
  4. Brian, Thanks, I will give that a shot. I’ve been using the Tamiya masking sheets so far, since I’ve had difficulty finding Oramask 810 in the size you mentioned. Where do you buy yours? Cheers, Tom
  5. Just a small update: I managed to generate masks, but the outlines have ragged edges not corresponding to the screen image. I might have damaged the craft cutter autoblade when I started a previous cut job while forgetting to use the plastic sheet that the mask aheres to! I ordered a new blade. To be continued! Cheers, Tom
  6. John, Way to persevere! So often I’ve walked away, thinking my results were irretrievable, only to come back with a fresh perspective. I was going to suggest sanding away ALL of the engraved detail and adding what you want to a clean slate, but you seem to have powered through! Cheers, Tom
  7. Antonio, Thanks! Just the clarification that I and my planned D-15 build needed. Cheers, Tom
  8. Antonio, Exquisite work so far! Regarding the Terrell simulations, which I love having as a resource, weren’t the early seats more of a bucket design, while the later seats had more of a minimalist design? I’ve always been curious about this in his D-5 vs. D-30 simulations, which have them switched. Cheers, Tom
  9. Brian, Thank you! I will put this info to good use. Thanks Thomas! It got easier once I got the hang of it. Cheers, Tom
  10. Thanks everyone! One more challenge: since my red paint mix is not an exact match for the decals after all, I have to paint the tail squadron markings. Making the masks for the fine white outline, which barely appear against the background, is proving the trickiest part. However, I hope to have it all painted this weekend. Cheers, Tom
  11. A bit more done today before I head back into work. I did some touchups, added the glosscoat, attached the main armament, and unmasked the canopy. Almost there! Cheers, Tom
  12. Thanks Andy! Thanks, I appreciate it! Cheers, Tom
  13. Brian, Good catch! During my creative exploration to get the cowling to fit over the left engine, I managed to shorten the piece that housed the shaft retainer ring. When I fitted the cowling over the right engine, I realized it didn’t make a difference! No worries, diversity is a good thing. :) Cheers, Tom
  14. Thanks Lothar! ZM did most of the work with the kit design. I’m just glad my $20.00 airbrushes are holding up! Cheers, Tom
