  1. Started scribing the panel lines and have about 90% of it done. Not much else has been worked other than cleaning up so small parts. Will post pictures once it starts going together.
  2. Not much progress on the A-4 in the last few days, I have been trying to finish up a 1/48 P-38M for the Nationals. I would like to take at least one recently completed entry. I also have been trying to figure out how to construct the intake duct work for the engine on the A-4. I kind of have something in mind but have not been able to work out the how part yet. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Mike
  3. How long is the turn around time to get the -7 conversion set.
  4. Greetings Thanks for the info, I am sure I can figure out the cowl sccops and the few other minor stuff left to do. I would like to order the conversion set so could you put me in contact with Oliver. Mike
  5. Greetings I was looking through some old FSM magazines and saw an article from the June 1987 issue of a conversion done by Larry Schramm from Milwaukee, Wisconsin and a member of the Richard I. Bong IPMS Chapter. He converted the Revell 1/32 F4U-1D to a F4U-5N and I wanted to know if there is anyone out there who might know how to contact him or has info on this conversion. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Mike
  6. I am trying to decide if I should scribe the panel lines or just leave it like it is. I rescribed the panels on the 1/48 A-26 Invader so the A-4 couldn't be as hard as that was.
  7. I have primed the cockpit, removed the gunsight from the control panel, opend up the intake and added tubing for exhaust. Here is a picture of what I have done so far on the A-4.
  8. I was able to find a Black Box cockpit and I have been working on adding some detail to the intakes. I will have to add some inwork photos. Mike
  9. Thanks, I have seen some of the extra goodys for it but just have not been able to put my hands on any of it, they have usually been out of stock or out of production.
  10. I had taken a few years off from building so I am going to have to reeducate myself as well. I am sure most of my supplies have dried out so I guess a restock will have to be the first order of business. Also, I usually build 1/48 prop aircraft so this is really way different for me.
  11. After taking a couple of years off from building I wanted to start with something completely different from 1/48 prop aircraft so pulled out the Hasegawa 1/32 A-4E/F it was either the A-10 or the A-4, the A-4 looks like I should be able to knock it out in a few months. Ha ha.
