  1. Great start. Cockpit panel is awesome. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘.
  2. Thanks Gil. The pilot with the .38 revolver is from Verlinden. The revolver came with the figure. I thought that it was a little strange myself, since the .45 was the issued side arm at the time. Regards Christopher
  3. I choose to do the base first on this build. I'm going to pose the Mustang in a state of Maintenance. The base itself consist of 3/4" plywood covered with cut squares of 80 grit sandpaper. I attached the squares to the plywood with contact adhesive. I painted the sandpaper with Testor's Model Master enamels. I did a pin wash of black artist oils to simulate oils stains. I finished it off by painting cracks with flat black, and applied pastel dust along the joints in the concrete. I found some grass that comes in like a blanket from Germany. It was applied over sanded grout that was painted dark brown. I did some scratch build. (The saw horses, work bench, and the propeller stand) The barrels,and tool box came from Miniart. The plaques were made at my local trophy shop. The figures were a mix of 1 kit supplied pilot, 2 Verlinden, and 2 Ultracast. I have not completed a lot on the plane itself. Its a great kit with loads of options, and the parts fit great. I purchased the plated metal model. Regards Christopher
  4. The photo etch really kicks it up a notch for sure. Great start.
  5. Looking forward to seeing the completed model Nick. Good idea on the fix. I’ve always wanted to build one of these. Any recommendations on a good kit? Regards Christopher.
  6. Wow! Love the camo job. The subtle weathering make the entire paint job pop. Congrats. Regards Christopher
  7. That is one eye popping color scheme Ron. Great build. How old is the kit?
  8. That is one sweet F-16. Love the airbrush work, and weathering.
  9. Fantastic build David. Love the weathering. Not over done. Congrats!
  10. Thanks for the reply Kevin. I picked some up this week. I have not used them yet. I specifically purchased them to paint some figures for my P-51 diorama. Sounds like they live up to the hype. Glad to hear their easy to work with. Personally, I dread doing figures. I’m still using Testors Model Master enamels About 90% of the time. I’ve got two small shelves in my build closet with around 30 or so colors of Tamiya. Again, thanks for all the helpful info. I’m looking forward to using them. Regards, Christopher.
  11. Sorry to hear about that Kevin. I’ve never used Vallejo paints. Are they really as good as everyone describes them? When I first used the Tamiya clear green through my airbrush, the paint did not look smooth at all when it went on. I was tempted to wipe it off right away, but decided to let it dry. As it dried, the paint eventually smooth out. It’s all I use now. Regards Christopher
  12. Your airbrushing job looks fantastic. Nice crisp line. May I ask what medium you use as a wash? Your landing gear is awesome.
