  1. Past hour
  2. Ive just been looking at mine, Its a strange mix of HP-C+ and CM-C+. Does it have the standard nozzle or a floating nozzle as found in the HP-CS and the like?

  6. Today
  7. Hi Stu, As Boz said, there is no repository. Occasionally friendly airliner modellers make their art work available to others on request, but you need to be at the right place at the right time. There are a whole heap of decal manufacturers out there that offer many different airliner sheets, you just need to use your google foo to find them. Even if a particular manufacturer does not have a specific scheme for a particular aircraft type, they can usually quite easily create these scheme on another type for the fleet. Are you after a particular aircraft an
  8. Does anyone have photos of "Midnight Cowboy" and "Firebird" where the tail codes are visible? Any high resolution scans of the nose art from books would be very helpful, too. I looked everywhere online, but I am hoping there are some photos in a book somewhere.

  10. As I noted in my just prior post, the answer is yes. That's just the way Matt is. He says it like he sees it, and that's just him. So, if you go looking on his Youtube channel, expect all of his videos to present whatever topic in that same manner.
  11. Nice analysis, Hoops. Thanks. Gene K
  12. Wow, sorry to have mentioned Doog's without the language warning. That kind of thing doesn't bother me at all, and I feel if you don't like certain langue, or even outlook, as espoused by a particular individual anywhere, whether it be radio, TV, Youtube, etc., then don't watch. However, I do feel bad about making the recommendation and not mentioning that aspect of his videos. It simply didn't occur to me to bring it up. Say what you will about Matt's style, he IS a spectacular modeler, and has really amazing techniques to demonstrate, and also has a lot of insight into the model industry
  13. I have a 1/48 GWH Su35 Flanker E (#48020) that I would like to trade. The kit is open box with all parts on the sprues in sealed bags. I am interested in trading for one of these two options: ANY COMBINATION OF TWO-- 1/48 Tamiya P-38H 1/48 Tamiya F-16C Aggressor 1/48 Great Wall Hobby MiG-29 9-12 Early (#4814) OR-- 1/32 Revell Ju88 Each person is responsible for shipping...USA only because of shipping expenses and time delays. Brian
  14. My decals were lost many years ago, but from looking at the directions it appears that if built as the later YB-35, the XB-35 serial number and earlier style national insignias would be left over...would love to buy or trade for these. Thanks Chris
  15. As I mentioned in my original post, I have the KA set of closed nozzles for the F-15, and those nozzles are absolutely spectacular!! The control arms (I believe that's the correct term) are so finely made that it almost doesn't look possible. I recall reading somewhere that these KA nozzles are actually created using the actual 3D printing technology, and are not poured resin. Perhaps that's why they are so expensive. But even so, they are amazing and definitely something I want on my model!
  16. Look here: http://web.archive.org/web/20020806164507/http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/shuttle/reference/sodb/ Specifically, the drawing you seek: http://web.archive.org/web/20030713205832/http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/shuttle/reference/sodb/2-5b.pdf and the tile layout for the aft face: http://web.archive.org/web/20030715163500/http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/shuttle/reference/sodb/2-6b.pdf I would recommend copying/downloading all the drawings in the first link. .
  17. I agree with Jenshb, the nozzles are a bit over scaled. My personal favorite is the KA set....canโ€™t go wrong. I looked into the Reskit set but itโ€™s only available in 1/32 right now!
  18. Hello all, So after some sanding and filling, I think I have the cargo bay doors adequately positioned. As luck would have it, it's not the border between the beanie cap and the bay doors that has a step off, but actually the aft edge of the bay doors and the start of the OMS pods that doesn't fit correctly. The slight step off here I tried to address with some shims. This will all be underneath some thermal quilts, so I think I can get away with this level of crude approximation of the interface. My heart stopped when I lit it up and had a hu
  19. Don't really like to toot my own horn, but I have started a Youtube channel that has some basic "how to" videos as well as some time lapse of my builds. Slowly adding more content as I have the time. Channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChXN05Si3lMMG13HwAKSCBw my "Tips & Tricks" playlist: Sean
  20. I don't know if the following is an old Asian adage or, Western but it goes like this, "when one door closes, another one opens". So, don't worry about the job, you will find another one. ๐Ÿ‘
  21. One evening my son (about 8 years old at the time) and I were watching a Plasmo video when a Doog's Models video was recommended, so we naturally started watching that one. The guy's language had my son's eyes wide within the first minute and I was faced with the inevitable "Pappa, what did he just say"? I suppose to a lot of people that type of thing doesn't matter at all, but personally I cannot stand it and, furthermore, at that point I didn't see any warning accompanying the videos. I have no idea how good or bad his videos are otherwise; if it was only that bad in that particular video an
  22. One note about ELO, they do attack the plastic a little by making it more brittle, if left it on for too long. It may attack cemented joints also. I suspect if you use it once, it should be ok. I had fuselage half joints came apart and parts chipped off at the edges. But one thing it does very well is stripping lacquer based paint, including Mr surfacer.
  23. I agree with you . . . I have had a hard time too . . What I have accepted is that a lot depends on the photo settings as in the camera settings and the light on the aircraft . .. so I have made peace with accepting an average colour on the aircraft colours and stick with it . . . . Hope it helps. . . . ๐Ÿ˜€
  24. I love my Eclipse. Agree with RichardL on the finish and cleaning. Vern
  25. What viking73 said. Also, see if you can score some Mr. Color Leveling Thinner. It has pixie dust and unicorn farts in it that makes airbrushing a joy. I mix in a Dixie cup and airbrush about 15-20 psi. Good Luck! Vern
