Well, after a almost a year I am back. With my private pilot license in the books and now with a hiatus  for me to figure out what I am doing, I thought some modelling would help relax and focus me. This build is for my father who says he will never have time for modelling again, so I get to build it for him.

I will also be finishing up my F-15 build that left off a year ago with it missing a canopy but thanks to Bruce on this forum, I have had a replacement one now collecting dust while I was in school. It will be put in place so I can finally finish that kit for good.
 
Cheers everyone and happy holidays.

Congrats on your PP License. seems like a million years ago I earned my ticked.

Awesome start on the Big Radials. Just wanted to let you know that HPH announced they are releasing a 1/32 F7F Tigercat this coming year

Will be following with great interest

I think it was one of the mid-ara Monogram monogram kits that was really a super joy to build. 

 

I just knew you'd sniff this one out pretty quick.

 

 

Yes K2, all that is T-cat. Ever since my brother built the 72nd version of this and I gazed upon her slender form, I was hooked. He left that kit in the room I inherited as a kit at my parents house. 

 

Seeing BBMan multiple times then La Patrona didnt help the addiction

I saw a real Tigercat here in Columbia a few years back. Mighty nice to hear both of those big radials rumbling at the same time.

Nice!

One thing to watch out for, if it really matters, is that the propeller blades are backwards. It's "off" enough for me at least to notice. I built the nightfighter version years ago. Bought the corrected nose, etc., but the blades I just turned around and made sure they had the right washout, or twist, to them. And some resin wheels. The vinyl tires as supplied will eat the plastic. Hope this helps!
