    Another South African Mirage From the Duke

    Nice job! I am not to familiar with SA markings. Is that a Eagle on the national markings? Must be a squadron marking on the tail (looks like a bug)?

    WW2Japanese propellers

    Thanks Gil, Seeing that the Ki 100 is a late war fighter the prop could be black with a yellow tip. But I will go with the red primer and yellow strip. To me this looks better than black with a yellow tip.

    WW2Japanese propellers

    I am currently building the Hasegawa 1/48 scale Ki 100 tony. Pretty simple build. There is a question I have and I just want to make that I am correct in my thinking. The instructions say to paint the prop black. Maybe I am wrong but I think black is the wrong color. The color I normally use for Japanese props is White Ensign Models red primer which is a mahogany color. Also, the instructions say to paint the prop tips in yellow. I may be mistaken again but only USAAF and RAF prop tips were painted yellow.

    I cannot remember what was said in the video. I would imagine either sprue or sheet styrene will give you the same results. I do remember in the video white styrene was used with a little black acryilic paint added to the goo. I use black colored styrene so the black acryilic paint is not needed.

    Paint fumes

    I like your work area. Mine looks like a hurricane has been through the area. I noticed your clear acrylic paint racks. Just wondering if they are nail polish display racks or the paint display rack Florey models have for sale? The display racks look like the ones that I have (nail polish displays). Also wondering how you store your paint sets(like Vallejo)? You may have limited space, but I use peg boards. Never used the Stynylrez primer before, are they good primers to use?

    Nakajima Ki 84 Hayate "Frank"

    The exhaust also shows this to be an Oscar.

    Nakajima Ki 84 Hayate "Frank"

    Looking more closely at the kit. I am wrong. The plane is not a Frank but an Oscar. What through me off was the tail tip. The tip looked rounded, like a Frank's tail. But the aerial mast is in front of the cockpit like the Oscar and not behind the cockpit like the Franks.

    Nakajima Ki 84 Hayate "Frank"

    The Frank and Oscar look similar. The tails look different. The Frank tail has a rounded tip and the Oscar tail tip is more pointed. The spinners also have different shapes.

    Nakajima Ki 84 Hayate "Frank"

    I like Tamiya (shake and bake) kits. I am starting to like Airfix betterthan in past , seeing that more 1/48 scale kits are being released with good detail. I find it said that oversea manufactures now haver more new releases Gone are the days of Monogram/Revell being in the lead. Duke and you always have kind comments on my builds thanks

    F4U Corsair

    Thanks for the FYI. I cannot remember if this is how the tape was applied in rhe field. I noticed for this Corsair version there where fabric surfaces on the wings. Do you know if later F4Us replaced the fabric n the wing s with metail?
