  1. I absolutely understand the reasons for such option. It was unclear when the flat floor was introduced, but today we can prevent wrong choice making some notice with 100% reference from factory drawings.
  2. The only P-47D I've built is 1/48 old good Monogram as David Schilling personal mount. It was around 25 years ago, and yes, no exepition, it had incorrect corrugated floor also. I just didn't know the difference that time. Many models have just "universal" cockpit for all P-47 variants and Monogram P-47 is one of them. Why should we continue to repeat old mistakes again when we know how it has to be done?
  3. It's just wonderful to have an options and you make great work here, but there is no real option for Razorback Jugs because of lack of rear bulkhead, early seat mount, armor plate, radio etc. It is obviously not universal cockpit set and intended only for Hasegawa's Bubbletop P-47s. Am I right? Modelers continue doing mistake selecting corrugated (even making it from scratch like here Another Hasegawa Bubbletop) floor for Bubbletop P-47D versions. In case of your beautiful set totally unclear what second corrugated floor intended for. I'm just try to point attention to these details one more
  4. By the way, all "Bubbletop" P-47D versions, including D-25 had flat cockpit floor. MDC cockpit mistakenly represents corrugated floor of earlier Razorback up to D-23 model. Here is data table from Republic factory new flat floor drawing. It's clearly seen that it was installed from D-25 up to N-25 inclusive - all bubbletop series.
  5. Very promising start! I like JASDF Phantoms. My Hi-Res F-4EJ Kai & RF-4EJ walkaround from Hayakuri for the help: Hayakuri gate guards and More F-4EJ Kai go around procedure at Hayakuri.
  6. Please look at this brilliant work from Russian scratchbuilder Ivan Zhukov. I think that it is good idea to present it here with Author's permission. The Author’s concise description and lot of photos below: Initial work started 3 years ago with 3D model in Rhinoceros 4.0 to get proper shapes. Later 3D model was used as “master” to cut internal structure details. The main airframe components were cut from 2 mm foamed PVC sheet and covered by shell of the same plastic, but 0.7 – 0.9 mm thick. The nose section framework was soldered from 0.9 mm copper wire using cardboard jig a
  7. To be honest I and my friend have been thinking long time about F-100 rear fuselage skin.
  8. Hello Damian. The best choice is some kind of contact glue. Application technique is the same as Peter Castle (Airscale) uses for thick aluminium foil. In some cases I can use "slow" or Extra Time super glue gel. Before application parts usually being annealed and formed to conform to the surface. The thin (0.05 mm) steel surface is very strong and will not be affected by glue underneath. After application parts can be polished to get necessary tint and shine. Regards, Alex.
  9. The parts made of steel, as on real thing. How do you assess them?
  10. A.M.U.R. Reaver will offer new PE Set next week. There is set of four patterns for different effects, from fine regular grains to irregular stains and splashes. I "played" them yesterday using 1/24 P-47 wing for metallic paints effect test. They are very thin and flexible but very robust, because they are made of 0.05 mm stainless steel and will serve all the lifetime.
