  1. Don't know..perhaps I got a reject. wait and see what others say. They were for the Tam. Spit only.
  2. We're OK...The Trumpeter doors aren't bad,just have to get rid the shotgunned surface and clean them up. but do appreciate the offer.
  3. No big deal...just a little re-shaping and white primer.
  4. I think this is the best way to depict a fighter at full throttle..you can't see the prop...Like it.
  5. Just a mild warning on the REXX sets,bought 2 for the spitfire....they won't fit(I mean won't) unless you cut them up..and they disintegrate when you try it.
  6. Tim....if you haven't found a set yet.. I have a set you can have gratis. Moskit
  7. Back at the bench with an oldy but goody...We are taking two Hasegawa Hellcats and attempting to entitle them. Have been collecting AM for a long time ,some just recently traded for with a good modeling friend. Mating Trumpter wings to the Has fuselage x2,want a F6F-3 and a F6F-5. Will attempt to rescribe and enhance all the surface detail..new cockpits,detailed engines, etc. Have line drawings and references in place and a head full of ideas..All that's left is a bit of time and some luck sorting out how to do it.LOL. Cheers Bill. Got my hands on this nice base from Australia ...quite lovely it is
  8. Thanks Ray..ya we have a bucket of AM for the Has. and the trumpeter wings can be folded (have PE to highlight that) they also have the correct wheel wells,engine, and landing gear that is way above what Has. offered....why Trumpeter blew the fuselage is an absolute mystery,it really is bad and won't hesitate to say it. Comes down to a simple matter of choice,and we we have so much 32nd in the hobby today that sometimes the choices are underappreciated .I have been on an "Old School" theme lately and these Hellcat builds are just part of that. Personally think the Hasegawa has the most potential,for my own eye of course. Respectfully..Bill.
  9. I will respectfully disagree..I believe we can make something out of the Hasegawa kit with a few mods.I did think about the Airfix but not really my scale and don't have the display room in the case.As nice as it obviously is, also there's the issue with having spent a ton, over time, on goodies to accentuate the Has.kit. Will post some progress pics once the engineering challenges are dealt with. cheers.Bill.
  10. Hey Jack...the Trumpeter fus.is too fat aft of the fire wall..you can't miss it. So some have been mating the Trumpeter wings which are good (especially the wheel wells) Even the engine is much better..but the rest you can keep.
  11. Thanks Brian,,ya there's a couple of ways I can do it (lot of work) but not sure if I'm missing the easiest. Do know someone on LSP a long while back did this conversion,can't remember though.
