    Thanks for checking in Ron! No updates--waiting for the creative juices to start up again. However, the build is definitely not hidden in my hobby room! Cheers, Tom
  2. Exquisite work! Cheers, Tom

    Just catching up. The cowling fit looks really good, and the figure is outstanding, especially considering the paint you used! Stellar work. Cheers, Tom

    Matt, Not sure if you caught my response to your question, so I am reposting it here: The cowling fit was tricky for me as well. I recommend leaving the engine block unglued, so when you fit the cowlings the propeller shaft is trapped in a position that minimizes gaps between the cowling parts. Also, remove some of the plastic from the engine block above the exhausts, since this interferes with the upper cowling. Here is a recommended build sequence for adding the cowling pieces: 1. The N06/N09 assembly 2. N17/N18 3. N04/N05 4. N11 5. N10 (you can make this moveable btw if you drill a hole in the ductwork for the control rod D06 to fit in) 6. N02/N03 7. N16 I used Tamiya extra thin cement and taped the parts in place to squeeze them together. Hope this helps!  Cheers, Tom

  12. Brian, Great to know you are up and about! Hope you are doing well. Thanks for the recommendation about John W’s build. I have marveled at his work for years, but didn’t know he was working on the Nighthawk. Cheers, Tom

    Ryan, That is some beautiful detail! I am really enjoying watching your progress here, and thanks for the construction tips. I do like ZM kits, and this is the best build log of their Mustang I have seen. Cheers, Tom
