  1. Thanks Guys Actually I took the tanks from an F-86 kit..They did not provide any. Cheers Bill
  2. Greetings A Bit of a modeling challenge here.This is the Hi-Tech Kit I found visiting a Hobby Shop in Grand Junction. You should always be a little wary about kits in the back with a lot of dust and a description that say High Tech but what the heck ,lets challenge the Model skills ! The IsraDecal decals were the best part of this project, I did double them over the fusalage red and that worked Great. Also I had great luck with the Wing formation lights and some blending skills. Alclad and lots of sanding and Priming Please let me know if you are not familiar with the term "3 Footer" My interest in the subject was much higher than my skills in this aircraft The wing tanks and pylons were not included and came from the spares Box. So much for High Tech :-) Something to View Cheers Bill :D :D
  3. Thank you all very much for the compliments. Cheers Bill
  4. The Dragon 262 had numerous construction challenges, from the wing roots to the gun/ nose sections even the landing gear presented problems with construction. The BF 109 is the first edition they released. Not easy to see the discrepancies,need a reference model. This was a very nice model to build and the issues are not of my concern. Thanks for the compliments Bill
  5. Hello Below are photos of Airfix BF 109F,Dragon Me 262 and last the Eduard BF 109G-6. These are aircraft flow by Franz Stigle and referenced in the book " A Higher Call" I found this a great read and super stimulus for these aircraft models. Africa scheme for first project The 2 on his aircraft was unusual as referenced in a photo of his aircraft. This a controversial scheme ( some say it was Galland's Aircraft) but I have a signed poster with his signature and showing White 3 from JV 44 Dragon kit was a bit of a challenge Just finished with Kitsworld decals This was a fun build Gunze Paints for this aircraft Comments are always welcome Cheers Bill
