  1. A wonderful result out of the very challenging FM kit, Martin!

  2. @Matra, I agree with Spiros! That is a splendid result and an accomplishment to be proud of! ?

  3. Looks great, nicely done!

  4. Beautifully done, Martin @Matra
    Your grinding has really paid off, she looks great.

  5. Very fine work on a dawg! I gave on mine shortly after it came out.

  6. Amazing looking Tiger.

  7. A triumph of talent, tenacity and skill over plastic! Looks good.

  8. Well done! Nice to see one of these built.

  9. Looks great! I know the work that is involved in the kit- have not started yet- I have two FM kits- one will be a short nosed Blue Angels Tiger, and the other a long nosed Blue Angels Tiger. I also have the 1/48 Collect Aire kit. There was talk of a new injection molded one being released pre-pandemic. If the molds got cast, maybe we will see one from HobbyBoss?

  10. Thank you everyone for the comments.

    For a long time I have been trying to build a 1/48 F7U-3 Cutlass, Hobbycraft with Collect Aire Conversion .I hope I'll finish it sometime.

  11. Despite the bill for the putty, this turned out really nice! Love the unusual subjects, and you don't see too many of these built up - well done!

  12. Brilliant work - sounds like you had a really tough time but it really doesn't show at all.
