Hi guys, been really busy of late and not to mention a bit under the weather.


I drilled some holes and used some clear Sprue as camera lenses to add a little more interest.

managed to get some colour on today aswell (although the Tamiya Sea Blue went down a bit grainy and took some rubbing down) so hopefully the next pictures will show some decals down.


all comments welcome, I hope this post works and you can see my pictures ok.

nice work mate. How's the AB nozzle?
Cheers mate, already over tightened one and snapped it. Paid out silly money for a iwata replacement I'm sure it was about 20 quid! For such a tiny piece. Was thinking about trying the third party kind of evil bay, you get about 5 for the same price. What are your thoughts? Bit of a gamble isn't it? Be interesting to see if anyone has had any experience with them?

All looking very nice. This Panther has got me interested in early jets again.
