  1. Past hour
  2. Thanks you, Texas.
  3. Thanks Michael, Yes, careless/lazy mistakes all. I may go back and do some corrective work in time. Thanks for the compliments too. I shall concentrate on those for the moment and use my heightened morale to produce a somewhat tighter F-4...
  4. Vintage boxes I can see...but not something like that. I've bought a few old Monogram kits, just for the boxes. I have a display of them on the wall in my TV room. The kits I'll then bag up and sell or give to the kids next door.
  5. I have been having trouble getting large decals to conform. I have used micro sol and Mr. Softener to little effect. It works areas which are lightly raised, but doesn't with areas such as the demarkation between the rudder and vertical stabilizer in the picture below. I do not apply the softener underneath the decal, but apply several (maybe 4 or 5?) coats over it and press with a paint brush to get it to bend into the crease. I am able to get it into the crease but it does not stay and rises as it dries as can be seen in the pic below. The top 1/4 of the crease did conform. Does anyone have any ideas? A more aggressive decal softener? I have also read where people have used future underneath the decal. It supposedly sucks the in before it dried. I have tried this in the past with smaller decals but you need to work fast as the future ends up sticky like glue and you are not able to reposition.
  6. Here's the schematic from the UH-60 manual. It really all depends on the angle you view the opening at, but you can see the rounded over edges here. Ray
  7. I'm selling a NIB with original factory sealed bags Squadron release of the T-33A Shooting Star in 1/32. Kit comes with resin, PE and metal landing gear. Paypal preferred, but will accept MO or personal check' Shipped from Raleigh NC $80 including shipping within Cont. US. Bill L.
  8. I guess the "cut-out" on the back side of the rotor opening is more of a scoop, which makes it hard to see in pics. The support for the HIRSS looks good. Nice job so far.
  9. PM and email sent, sir.
  10. Very Nice! Which colors did you use on the AMRAAM?
  11. Today
  12. Ray has a lot of them. Rod.
  13. I am missing the canopies and decals to the following kits: DML F/A-18D #4536 DML F-117A #9904 If you have any of these items please let me know. I am fine with aftermarket decals or decals from another kit too. Thanks, Lee
  14. I did a search but have come up empty. Does anyone have a decent set of images of the quilted overhead of a short body UH-1B or UH-1C interior? This is a 1/24 aftermarket resin overhead. I'm curious about accuracy of the overhead light positions, 3 piece quilt, and intercom box positions. Missing are the air vents which are just below the roof top scoops. I'm scratching my own in 1/48 and want to get it right since I'm going to cast the overhead piece once I'm done. Sorry for the small image. It's all I've got. Thanks to all
  15. Thanks Mark! I have success with my pc windows !! But linux does not show me anything !! The order is done, thank you again keep us informed for the decals of the F-35C when it will be realized,

  17. I don't go by ratio, I go by consistency. I read once to thin to "low fat milk." Since low fat has been 1% in the US for a long time now, that's my target. It's not a bad idea to swill some 1% milk around in your mixing cup just to get a feel for that.
  18. Haaa, I bet that was talked about on Monday morning back at the home base; "Yeah, and then I look over and some jackwagon is yanking on the friggin' speedbrake! Screw that, I'm not taking another plane to an airshow..." Thanks Darren!
  19. Ching Kuo, Refresh your Browser. B2Blain, See my post above for the color and my take to date on the F-35C. Mark
  20. I know I bought the Wingman D conversion and am still waiting for the Sierra Hotel A conversion. I have given up on the F-16D but the F-14 is a Yuuge success so I think they will & by this Fall release a late A and before next spring the B ...

  22. Thanks JackMan! This is his twin brother I built a couple years ago
  23. I am building a "C." I was wondering if I could use the decal sheet for most of the RAM paneling and then paint the specific ones for the "C". Would this work? Is the RAM panel FS36231? Thanks!
  24. Yes. I got one from Hannants last week, and Scott's Model Workshop (rebelalpha on eBay) has it, too.
  25. Mark: My order has been placed, and paid through PayPal. Thanks for making these decals; they have been needed for a long time.
