  1. Well, after much consideration, and complicated by the vast pool of amazing talent on display here at LSP making me feel like l am in the company of master craftsmen, I have decided to post a build log of my first LSP as an adult. A bit of background, like most here I was an avid modeler as a boy, 1/48 was my chosen scale, almost exclusively aircraft, and those were all world war two military aircraft. Then I went away to school, started a career and family, and suddenly, decades later, I saw a modeling magazine, and decided I could use the distraction of another hobby, something I
  2. Well I have been hammering away at this project since December of 2016, and finally (FINALLY!!) it is done. Here is a link to the long build if interested: Here are the pictures, warts and all. Apologies for the amateurish lack of good background and other professional picture taking skills. Aside from that, let me know what you think: I will post this now, as I don't know what limits there are on pictures per post. More next post
  3. Hello folks. Some of you have seen my work on a 21st Century Toys (21CT) P-51D (Miss Velma) a few years ago, and more recently a P-38J (Lucky Lady), both multi-year mod projects. If you will indulge me, I intend to finish off the big three with a P-47 Thunderbolt. A nice winter project to get started. It will probably take a couple of years like the others. Then some day I will get going on the F4U Corsair, and then I will not have any 1/18 scale models left to modify. As is customary, I must show you the unmodified P-47 toy first, and then let you know my plan of attack (if there i
  4. I bought this kit few years ago, before Eduard made their Limited Edition P-47 set, but i lost my appetite for this big fish . Now i have new airbrush from Gunze so it was a good time to check how it works. I used these additions for P-47: - Eduard resin wheels, - interior PE set, - RB model gun barrels, - Montex masks/decals
  5. Hi everyone! I've been a lurker here for far too long! For years. I've learned so much from all your builds and got heaps of inspiration, so thank you! On the bench the past few weeks, (started 15ish years ago) is my Trumpeter hog. I'm building a 1991 Desert Storm 23rd TFW. To me, it's the classic hog. Growing up in the 80's, this was my favorite jet and I loved watching them at the local air shows. The Trump kit has a strange mix of old and modern detail, so there's going to be a lot of mods to backdate it properly. I've got all the usual aftermarket goodies lined up for it: Cut
  6. Hey folks This would have been a full WiP thread but like a few other folks here I had a bl**dy nightmare of a time with Photobucket over the last few weeks which only seems to have resolved itself now. Anyhoos here's my almost completed Hasegawa P-47. Eduard etch belts instead of HGW ones as I had them in-stock. Barracuda resin wheels which were two different types when I opened the pack but I used them anyway. Kagero decals from the 'Top Colours' book and AK Xtreme Metal enamel lacquers - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !! So the next time you see it (probably Saturday) it should be all done !!. In
  7. The Bubbletop being a Brazilian machine with aftermarket decals, the Razorback one of the 325th Checkertail Clan using kit decals. For their age, the kits are decent, although lacking in cockpit detail. The Tamiya kit is superior, but the Hasegawa can often be found and swap meets for 5 bucks, in fact that's what dad paid for it about 15 years ago when he bought it for me. It was a 2 in 1 special edition.
  8. Just a general question to the P-47 Cgnoscenti out there about the Jug. What would the relative temperatures from the five main vents/exhausts on a P-47 be? I am guessing the Waste Gates on the nose after the Oil Cooler flap would have jetted hot air (and dirt) based on the pictures. Logically the ventral turbine exhaust would have done something similar...but what about the side Intercooler vents? Would they have had cold air flow, or would this too have been hot gas? Hope someone can help.
  9. Hi, After a lof of struggling with this model I finally was able to finish it. Model as an early Trumpeter is not perfect, it has a lot of errors and a lot of work is needed to do it properly so I wouldn't recommend to beginners. I add resin cockpit (in set was also a resin gun muzzle), Eduard exterior and armament sets, another metal gun muzzle for gun on a trailer and additional model of VW Beetle from Airfix (a terrible, terrible model). Trailer is a scratch build, a few details were added to resin engines frome the kit and to the gun (from kit) on a trailer - especially the ammo be
  10. For info: What look like some nice resin wheels for the Kinetic kit or VFS one if you have that. Three tyre types to choose from. DEF Model...click on the corresponding thumbnail Lucky Model has them in stock for about $15USD HTH. Cheers Matty
