    Post  J.Fenech on Tue Aug 18, 2009 10:39 pm

    Hasegawa, 1/48th F-8E. I am using revell gloss and really not very happy with but last coat is on and weather may begin...... Marco no zuni rockets on this one, they are reserved for the Marine Corps crusader, when I finish it. This is is the aircraft model that will attach the wing last thing Shocked

    Joseph,

    You're a prolific modeller, not into aircraft much but I still enjoy seeing all your posts Cool

    Your productivity is incredible and it looks like it does not effect anything from the quality.

    Cheers for taking the time to post, keep it up Very Happy

    In the past, in better form it was about 1 every 1-2 month, but I would start more than 1 model at once. This years spike is due to a lot of started models reaching same stages at once, but all the WIP and completions posted were started this year, with the wyvern and seahawk being started and finished together in about a month and a half. Still got a lot of models in WIP stage, including the canberra and lancaster + condor which just need a little push to get finished but are ageing unfinished.

    Crusader, on its legs, WIP

    Post  J.Fenech on Mon Aug 31, 2009 10:42 pm

    Crusader up on its undercarriage. Wash to panel lines done using acrylics for the first time. No, not shifting, but a higher force pushed me as had no alternative because of the varnish used. Not happy with how either behaved but getting there.
