  1. Thanks Guys!! I made the head bolts and acid treated them because they were too bright. Added a little grunge too.
  2. These have 2.75 and 3.5 inch wing spans. All the decals are on them…
  3. The oil pan is done for now. More machined aluminum parts too. It's starting to look like something…
  4. Thanks Ray! Distributor hold down clamp. Also scratch-built.
  5. I finished the water pump after texturing it as well and making the aluminum mounting hardware and the plug for where the heater hose would go.
  6. Hi Pete, I read up on them before starting the kits, it seems the availability of engines for both the prop and jet versions were the problems relating to production. Their website even sounds like they are still holding out for a new powerplant to produce future aircraft. (I think it's better you had the MR2 and survived...) Here's the link for the WIP:
  7. Turns out the red color called out in the instructions is way too dark to match the red on the decals. So I added some yellow to the red and repainted the stabilizers. The decals for the BD-J fit pretty well, but solvent is a big help especially for the fuselage ones as they are a little on the thick side. The excess clear should be trimmed away, (counter what I would suggest for modern decals).
  8. I repainted the interiors and replaced the seatbelts. The prop version gets red stabilizers.
  9. I thought I might have been able to mask off the cockpit like I usually do with other 1/72 planes when I started, but it turns out the easier way was to ditch that work and I'll hand paint and re-decal the harnesses after shooting the white. (Good thing the Warbird sheet provides a lot of belts.) I was able to hold them by the interior with tweezers for painting too. I used Tamiya Fine White primer to check my bodywork and provide an even base, and then shot some decanted TS-26 Pure White for the color.
  10. Something fun and simple between Lola sub-projects... A pair of 1/72 scale BD-5s. These things are tiny. The BD-J is on the left, the BD-5B is on the right. I used Warbird Decals seat belts in them.
  11. Yes, the traditional schemes. Red, white & blue. Just realized I put this in the wrong section. Moderators please delete this thread as I cannot and already created a new thread in the proper place.
  12. I added the oil and water plugs before the last coat of orange.
