  1. Ooooh-hoooo I've somehow ended up with a good bit of aftermarket for this build! That's what brought it to the forefront for my next project. I've just found individual pieces for it cheap over the years and so I decided to go ahead and get the rest that's available for it. Check out the treasure chest I've amassed - From Eduard I've got the self-adhesive placards, slats, air brake, undercarriage, and wheel well sets. For cockpit choice I've got both the Verlinden and the Aires sets to work from. The Aires set I picked up at Nationals a few years ago. last day, last hour and they had the whole table 50% off. Couldn't pass it up. The aires set has canopy and wheel well upgrades in addition to the engine details. It looks pretty good. Honestly I don't know which cockpit tub I'll go with as they both look crisp. Will have to check accuracy for my bird and make a decision. Thats a master Pitot tube in there along with the Zacto nose enhancement for a facelift. Then lastly I was looking at all the Eduard pieces and just didn't like the fuselage PE they had. It all sticks off the surface too much. That's when I remembered seeing an email about Archer Fine Transfers announcing a new sheet. I used their hatches, hinges, and other resin bits on my T-38A and now they have redone the sheet at 1/2 the thickness of the original. This should do perfectly for the access hatches, fuel doors and the like on this AC. I'll post details up on this as soon as possible. I don't think I've seen a review on them yet. There's been alot of these Huns done and I think I have every one of them on a separate tab on my ipad for review as I get going. Given that, I plan to post fewer mid-term updates as most people have seen it all on these. I'll try sticking to the finished assemblies and just post up some details on the new stuff, like the Archer panels and the foiling, especially the Titanium tail and the archetypical bluing and burnt metal look they have!
  2. Well I'm waiting on parts for the corsair and they're coming from Belgium so...time to start what I'll call a slow roller. heading into summer and the family has lots planned so I'll work a little at a time on this one. It's going to be out of the box. Although you know I'm already struggling with that decision :-) The major work here will be foiling. I've gone over all Foiler and Out2gtcha post on this technique, I've done some practice work, I've collected all the tools (even have my mason jar for bleach). I chose this one , probably obviously, because it has the straight wing and I'm hoping that makes things easier this first time with foil. I started on the cockpit last night. Here's a quick shot of the model and the work so far...
  3. I've seen some awesome work displayed here with either metal foil or metal sheet skins, but I haven't really seen it explained in detail. I am really interested in trying this, and would love it if one of you guys who's done this would do a walk-through on it, or point me to a good one that already exists. Thanks! Tim
  4. Hello here my entree for the group build. And this is the plane im going for. Im going to use the trumpeter kit with the CE cockpit set. Just the air scoops,pitot tube and some Pe has to arrive. Mark
  5. Designed with a tail-less configuration in an attempt to overcome "Compressibility", a phenomenon when aircraft traveling above .75 mach encounter down-wash on the horizontal stabilizer's, causing the nose to "tuck under". The Cutlass was the first US fighter desgined with afterburners, and the NAVY's first swept-wing fighter. I wanted to build something different......this is definitely that, My first ALL-RESIN-KIT of a REALLY different airplane. As normal with me she will be "In-flight", NMF combination silver lacquer and aluminum foil with a PJ Productions 1950's Naval Aviator.
