This is the review I submitted for my Italer 1/72 A-7E Corsair II. I was looking and it turned up so I bounced around the room, pics don't do it justice (okay it's not award winning) but I'm so happy they accepted it.
Hope you guys like it. Oh, and the pic on my profile is the original paint job. ;D

Heck yes that Mr Muscle rocks the caz bar. I stripped the corsair, my Hawker Tempest and the 1/72 Hasegawa Ki-84 from like 10 years back. Just melted off, no degredation of the plastic at all.
Saved my butt on a recent project. Was my 1/72 Academy Hawker Tempest, model was literally finished and I buggered up on the gloss coat and smoke stains. Plugged up the holes stipped back and started again.
I now have a proud 486 Sqn bird SA-C NV937, sitting between the Corsair II and an F6F-5. Now I have to start building the 50+ models in storage (typical hording).
(long winded post I know) For other tips check the ARC website Tips & Tricks on the link above. I've used a couple and they work great. I also did the tip to make grates using mesh, gives great effect.
