    Daniel- the tape has beeen sealed in a thin coat of CA glue and represents a attachment cover. Gil & Glenn- The intake would not fit and was not IMHO worth the effort. I used lead 'tape a weight' see picture below. Dick - I'm not sure on how to submitt a article for the journal but I would be more than happy to ... s**t I would like to get in on the freebees handed out for doing reviews. Ha! Rossjr- the canopy looks like a old pepsi bottle from 1963. I'll post pictures when I do the fix. Chris so far the biggest problem was the fitting the resin gearbay into the wing. After looking at a few online builds I decided to approach it a little differently. I basicly cut out a rectangle around the opening (bottom side of wing) the plastic is very thick and sanded the ++++ out of it untill it was thin enought to pass as the metal skin and glued it back into place. Gap filled with CA then I thinned down the resin itself and only then did I sand down the upper wing. I plan on adding a little more plumbing and clean up work. I will most likly rebuild or scratch out new gear doors as they are totally missing the inner details. Pitot tube picture included.

    This is the Grand Phoenix kit (1/48) I still have lots of work left to do I plan on detailing the rear cockpit deck and I need to figure out what to do for a replacement canopy. So far I scratched out a FOD cover for the intake to hide the nose weight, added guns and pitot tube made from hypodermic needles, fabricated a new IFR probe and removed large sections of plastic just to fit the beautiful resin parts.
  5. I can't understand the fanaticism over the Nazi subjects. Manufacturers in the end always seem to bend over backwards to appease this group regardless of how minor the offence. I only wish modelers could show the same type of enthusiasm for the P-51 Mustang arguable the greatest fighter of WW2... I don't get it. Example- the crowd on the dyperscale forum tossing their lollipops in the dirt to get attention seems to work... I guess. But these same people will toss you under the bus for busting Dragon chops on their POS Mustang(no amount of aftermarket or scratch building can save that debauchery)... Amazing . In the end I will buy the Eduard 109 and big flipping deal I'll may even spend the extra 2 dollars for the the squadron replacement canopy... whoopie . To the folks at EDUARD- Mustangs Please we will not complain or cry if it is half as nice as your 109.
  6. Gil, Nice work on that oldie moldie -still one of my favorite kits warts and all.
  7. Nice work- interesting scheme.
  8. Good stuff Gil! hope to see more soon.
  9. Wowzers! What a beauty. The rescribe really paid off.
  10. Great looking builds! Very nice workmanship. Comments... few points to consider when doing another P-51D the- top engine cowling panels are two pieces (right and left sides), the canopy should rest on the fuselage and ETO mustangs did not use the long wire. Anywho congrats on a awesome pair of fine looking Mustangs.
  11. Steve - That is one sharp looking Mossie.
  12. Now that is just plain cool.
  13. 1/48 Tamiya Do 335B-2, built out of box only added seat belts. I used Modelmaster Acryl paints. any comments welcomed, enjoy
  14. Hard to beat a P-40 for being one of the most coolest birds of WWII, Nice choice using a RAAF scheme.
  15. we sent TF-51 Little Witch and Doc's FM-2 Wildcat.
