Switching to Hataka is the main reason for my increase in productivity- I can now paint an entire model in a day or two rather than a week or two when I was using enamels. They're a revelation!

My second Super Sabre of the year, it was just as largely trouble free as the first with no real pitfalls as far as fit is concerned. I added an Aires exhaust I found in the stash ...

Evening all, It's been a while since I finished a model, so time to put that right with the latest off the bench, the Hobby 2000 boxing of the superb Hasegawa F-111F. Not a trouble free build- I had some issues getting all the internals to remain in place when joining the fuselage halves together- b...
