Long time IPMS Toronto member Bernie H. will be showing some of his recent builds over the next few weeks, starting today with a collection of 1/72 scale Jaguars.
“The Revell Kit is the re-issue of the Italeri Model, it has a few additions over the Italeri kit but has the same bad canopy and speed brakes. As you can see with some effort it is still buildable. I tried to open up the openings on the speed breaks by drilling both ends of the openings and than connecting the holes with a mouse-tail file. I was unable to do it successfully. I filled the holes and sanded it down. I phoned Ian Botaitis if he cold make the openings as decals which he did and send them to me very quickly. He printed them in black and grey and surrounded the openings for the inside of the speed breaks in an elongated rectangle. Please look at the ‘Sadman’ pictures 06a and 07a.”
