Jack,

 

I wasn't so keen on Jurassic Park but really love your Jurassic Plastic buddy !

 

that Engine looks quite exquisite  and your Workmanship is SUPERB. 

 

you are far too humble about your achievements and work.... you should shout about it like others do! :yahoo:

 

pleasing build to follow.

 

Keep Jack going .. :thumbsup:  :speak_cool:

Amazing work, Jack. And what an amazing kit this was back in its day!

 

Kev

Thanks Kev.  With some TLC and a little grinding she is coming along pretty well. jack

 

This kit really qualifies for this build?

 

Looking good!

Thanks Shaka Hi ....Well its old .....jack

 

 

Jack, have a question, the guns, are they too far back ? The ammo is feeding into the spring assembly, not the receiver. Not knocking your build buddy, just looks odd.....Harv

Hey Harv, well the guns are where Revell wanted them since I am building this out of the box. We  know from experience that a lot of stuff on models looks odd but most change it. Since I'm  ODD, I'm going to leave it ....this time...jack

Jack, no doubt they are in the "right" place, just don't understand them getting that wrong and have such excellent detail in other spots. Just have to shake my head. But a great job non the less........Harv

Harv, Maybe Revell had my problem of finding gun bay photos for a Raiden.

          I would bet Martinb has a stackof them...he comes up with more

          photos then anyone I know..Just have to get his attention

          I'm going to use the lack of photos as the problem

It may be old, but it looks like an excellent kit. I'm seriously considering a Hasegawa kit, perhaps sometime this year.

I was going to procrastinate tonight, but decided to wait.

DBRrRXi.jpgzapUFwG.jpgIt really is a pretty good kit but I know that the wing/fuselage is going to take some CA

on the right rear.  Something is not quite square so it will need some pressure to stay.

Added the cowl flaps to the mount ring, then engine and lastly the exhaust. I have the

bottom cowl glued to the nose ring so I can remove the top cowl and see the

"HIGHLY DETAILED ENGINE"........this is the FUN part for me......QTA0rMu.jpg7vG5Z4F.jpgvYjvmBF.jpg

Thanks Alain...Hoping it continues

Thanks Bill...I have collected quite a few Classic Plastic kits from my childhood and plan to relax

and build them OOB. I have a few conversion builds set aside for when I need CRAZINESS in my life.

Nice engine Jack :goodjob:

 

But, If Revell got it right, then the admission and exhaust valves were lifted in the same time. Difficult to get any compression and any power in these circumstances :).

   Thank You Hubert,

 

    It is one of those Mysteries of the Orient!!..

   It's why I had mentioned "Not to Laugh" .

   And also the advantage of building OOB.

   I'm ready to keep things calm in the hobby room

   I have some conversion sets to keep the excitement

   (Blood Pressure) up when I want to push a limit on occasion

   Models have come along way in 55 years

   I'm collecting those I grew up with and building for

  pure pleasure with what's in the box.  Although the new

  Airfix Victor has been added to my acquire list.
