Very nice build. Sometimes I forget that there weren't all painted red after all. It's good to see one in some alternate color scheme. Especially one as masterfully built as yours is.

finely got 'round to finishin' the texan I've been workin' on, the regular sized version of the FAC LT-6G "mosquito".

Image

Image

Image

As mentioned before, the canopy sits to low on the fuselage in unmodified form, but with aprox. 1/8" cut of from the front and back canopy bits it fits quite well. Printed it on Staples brand matt photo paper, which seems to work well enough, Certainly better the the Xerox glossy photo paper that the stand is printed on! that stuff shows up glue smears & finger prints like crazy, and is prone to smudge if not verrry carful.

And now for some better-late-then-never pic of 4th of july "carnage" (of paper planes, that is)

all that remains of a smallish F8F, launched be bottle rocket and destroyed when said rocket exploded!
Image

a P-35 that had several attempted bottle rocket launchings. Never got farther then 2' do to excessive weight caused by the yellow smoke bomb nose wight!

thanks guys!

cmdr, my preferred method of destroying bad models is to fly 'em around tell they have sustained to many nose dives, then burn 'em! 8)

Great job on the Texan! Not an easy model to build. The canopy on your's fits much better than mine. I only thinned the rear of mine, but it's too late to repair now. I like your base too.

FG's newest, the Bell P-39 Airacobra

Image

Image

It is one of the most detailed FG model to date, and goes to gether like a charm. (except for the wing farings!:lol:) Built in 1:60 scale, it is a little large-ish with a wing span of 6 7/8 inches, I'll build M' next one a bit smaller. :wink: I used Lego flex tube for the the nose cannon, which turned out to be to big so I guess have a custom 64mm cannon installed :lol:
