  1. Some pics to help you. BTW....some were a bit "weathered" by the time of the raid.
  2. That is an AWESOME build!! Well done!
  3. Very nice and very big! Love that finish.
  4. Eduard's new F4F-3 kit and it's pretty nice. Not too many fit issues and almost all the options to build any -3. The biggest issue I had, understanding that I'm an average modeler, was the engine to fuselage. There are just two tabs, one left and one right, and when you attach the engine it tends to swivel up & down. I added a third tab to help me out. The landing gear is a bit fragile so be careful removing it from the sprue. The windscreen did not fit right and needed some filing. If you plan on doing the 'Yellow wings' version you'll need to fill the two panel lines on either side of the cowl and scribe a line, one on each side, midway down the cowl. I'm kind of surprised Eduard missed that as they do give you the clips, in photo etch, for that cowl. I'm not a fan of Eduards new decals but what are ya gonna do. I used a mix of Eduard, CAM and YellowWings decals and Tamiya paints for the finish. All in all it's a great kit and since the F4F-3 is one of my favorites.....I picked up 3 more.
  5. I doubt it, as they are the ones who did the 1/35 Ju-87G1/G2 Stuka recently. I understand the Stuka as the armor kits are 1/35 also. Maybe this means a 1/35 scale ship kit!!! 😁😁😁

  7. I know and they do some really cool subjects. Their 1/144 B-36 really kicked my rear though!
  8. VERY nice!!! Well done!!
  9. I have mixed feelings about this as it has been on my wish list but it's a Roden kit. Not a fan to be sure....but I'll get one. https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10908285/10/1
  10. WOW! I don't remember seeing one of these built, so I'm looking forward to this build. Looking real good!!
  11. No other links Gil (I wish), but if you look below the drawing of the Wildcat there are some pics of part of the test shots. I know it's not much, but what you can see looks REAL nice. Also a pic of the marking options.
  12. It looks like Eduard did their research as they actually are giving us 4 different wind screens and the different cowl options to do the -3 correctly. Looks like s few of my kits will get pushed back in the 'to be built line' when this one hits the market!!! https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10895547
  13. I love when the oldies get built up nice! Great job!
