  1. Sean, This has been one of my favorite builds to follow, because of its subject, historical content, and quest for authenticity combined with some top modeling skills. Good things come to those who wait, and whenever you revisit this build I hope to be there. Meanwhile I’ve just revisited your MiG-29 build and it’s inspiring me to start mine up soon! Cheers, Tom
  2. Very impressive introduction Scott! Redrilling every single rivet—I have serious respect for your dedication! Cheers, Tom
  3. Stellar work! I love the scheme and your work on this. Cheers, Tom
  4. Great progress, and I am impressed with the kit cockpit detail. I’m glad you identified a workaround for your version. Cheers, Tom
  5. Excellent progress Andy, and those turnbuckles look great! Cheers, Tom
  6. Extraordinary creativity Sean! I will have to keep HGW in mind when I get to that stage of my build. You really are bringing this aircraft to life, and I will be looking for that Hayao Miyazaki movie. Cheers, Tom
  7. That cockpit pops Max! Great progress on all fronts. Cheers, Tom
  8. Thanks Gaz! Dale, it’s a mix of Tamiya paints: Yellow, Red, Earth, and Neutral Grey, using Nick Millman’s (J-Aircraft.com) recommendation, detailed here: https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/66239-japanese-trainerexperimental-orange-suggested-mixes/ Haha, thanks! Althought it doesn’t sing as nicely...;) Cheers, Tom
  9. Beautiful work Dale! The finish, weathering, base, great work: well done indeed. Cheers, Tom
  10. Thanks Ray! Weathering was with oils, pastels, and Prismacolor pencils. That was definitely a fun part of the build. Thanks Mike! I definitely join others in recommending this kit. Thanks Mark! Thanks Dennis! Very true: it does stand out in the display case. Domo arigato Ron-san! Sounds like a great read. Thank you very much Dale! Your two builds have definitely inspired me. Cheers, Tom
  11. Thanks John! I wanted this to stand out in the display case, and had always wanted to do a prototype build. It did go fast, aside from riveting. Other mods were more modest: engine wiring, removing the antenna, and modifying the front canopy. Don’t tell anyone, but the first prototype was actually unarmed. I didn’t notice this until after the cannon and gunsight were installed! Cheers, Tom
  12. Kevin, Thanks, but you are way too kind! Cheers, Tom
  13. Andy, thanks so much! I’ve been wanting to do this for some time, glad to see it to the finish line. Cheers, Tom
  14. Andy, Kagemusha, thank you! Yes, bright indeed! Hoping it’ll stand out in the display case Cheers, Tom
