  1. A 1/144 kit of a really cool British experimental Aircraft I wanted to bring something back from Telford this Year and this kit looked really cool. Since travelling through London baggage space is critical. Smaller is mandatory, This was not a hard kit but there were a few curves tossed here and there. Dry-fitting and Sanding were the word of the day. I added some details to the landing gear such as retractors and braces, using Albion alloys real small tubbing. Kit decals were used and the were mostly very good except the red forward sections on the nose, I used some Vallejo red for touch up. Checking steady-ness of my hands. This was a Beautiful aircraft and I am quite happy with the small version I have. PS the Paint is much smoother than the Magnified photos reflect. Thanks for taking a look and Comments welcome Happy New Year Bill
  2. Thanks all for the Compliments
  3. Thanks All for the Positive feedback. Off to a 109G-10 project
  4. Shiny Korean War veteran Alclad for Metal sections over Gloss Black Tamiya Decanted. Painted Yellow and Black ID Bands and nose. Older Microscale Decals used.CMK Interior was beautiful .Sorry I couldn't photo well. Airfix Kit was highly rated but my opinion is Hobbycraft and Fujimi are better F-86 kits. Airfix was missing some basics,Upper inlet,Upper fuselage panel, Side small Vents, Under-nose lights, nose radar scribing. Most of these were added but not all. Some small issues on the wings ,so 3ft is a good viewing distance. There is no dark area in front of gun panel, just a photo lighting issue. Thanks for Looking Comments always Welcome Bill D

  17. As Both Bill Thaw and myself are Pittsburgh natives, I decided on one of his aircraft. For those not familiar with Mr Thaw he was one of the founding members of the Lafayette Escadrille. This is the 1/48 Eduard Nieuport. Kit markings for National Insignias and Thaws Markings which was the "T" and the Indian Head was provided by fellow Modeler Tim Swisher (Local Thaw expert) Used Alclad High Speed Silver for the doping I used Uschi Line for Rigging and Bob's buckle eyelets for attachments,Albion Alloys Turnbuckles also used. This mount of Thaws had two guns and this is the over-wing Lewis I choose to build. Thanks for Looking Comments Always Welcome Regards Bill

  21. Hello Mike

    A thought from a Senior modeler(65).

    Any concept of posting notices with Award Winning models  for viewing Saturday during Show hours.

    1. Cards with models stating Award Winner. (1a) Not what the award is ,only that it is a winner.

    2. Concerns about Banquet attendees are mute as awards are announced after Banquet.

    3. Models leaving if not winners is a risk but as a National attendee I am there for the whole convention ,not just winning an award. (3a) Registration rules state models are not to leave showroom until after Awards ceremony.

    4. Allow much more review of show results, rather than just a brief slide photo and glimpse before packed Saturday night.

    5. This method of display has been accomplished in numerous shows worldwide, including World Model Expo in Telford England.

    Cheers

    Bill
