  1. I know the kangaroo should be 'jumping' forward

  2. Yves, I always like seeing the early jets, and from the looks of this you've done some really fine work here, well done !

  3. It looks very nice, Yves, the colour scheme really suits it. Which kit is it?

  4. Thanks, it is the Revell 04709 kit

  5. Hello Yves,
    Welcome on Imodeler
    Good to see my best mate from Model club Eeklo (Belgium) on this forum.
    The Sea Venom is very well represented in this 1/32 example.Job well done. Regards, Dirk

  6. Excellent work, sir...welcome aboard.

  7. Welcome, Yves! Beautiful Sea Venom!

  8. Very nice! I love these early jets as well - it seemed they were all unique. The latest generation jets all seem to be coalescing around common design themes, mostly due to technology I presume.

  9. Great looking model in a great colour scheme.

  10. Wow Yves,from what I'm told this isn't a great kit so you've made an amazing job, I build quite a bit of FAA stuff myself so I'm always interested to know what paints you're using ,it looks like Humbrol to me.
    Cheers N.

  11. Superb build! and welcome to the site.

  12. Very nice job and welcome!

  13. Good looking Sea Venom Yves, especially like the color scheme.

  14. Colour scheme very nice, and a clean build - not always easy with this aircraft.

  15. There's a neat little trick you can use to get rid of those pesky gaps on canopies attaching to the fuselage - run white glue around the gap. When it dries it's invisible and fills the gap. Nice work otherwise on this old kit.

  16. Nice modeling my co citizen of the Kingdom of Belgium!
