    lesofprimus, that looks great, the weathering looks excellent. Those hasegawa 1/32 A-8's go together pretty nice. I just finished one last month myself. I cheated and did back date it to an A-7. The only thing I didn't like is the flapes are down at a 90 degree angle, 190's flaps could go 60 degrees. I did fix my example either had to get it done for a show.

    Thanks fellas...

    Yea, I re-set the flaps for the correct angle as well... Also fixed the other errors that I could with putty....

    Great kit...
    It was my first try using an airbrush for anything, on top of being only the second model Ive built in the last 20 years.... I think it came out far beyond my expectations.... Learned some mistakes and little tips along the way, so the next one should be better....

    I love learnin new sh!t....

    Great, Les. Makes me feel like a kid again. Wonderful job!

    I too have been working with my youngest one. We made a F4F and a Naboo fighter. If I get my nerve up, I'll post our next round of development. You have inspired me.

    If that's one of your first attempts at late war molt with an airbrush you did a outstanding job. Getting the molt to look right and the fethered edge to scale is one of the most difficult things to do. I'll post some pics of my A-8. when I get the time.

    I would have to agree with that. Where in the house are you going to put it Les? That's a big bird.
