    Great one! You did a great job on the artwork and finish. Ed
  2. Great show guys. Well worth the time and effort to drive over from NE Atlanta. Ed
  3. I've finally started this. And have little to show so far. I realized that the carburetor vents on the lower sides of the nose were molded as little bumps on this model. So I have been busy drilling out lots of little holes. Of course, I have 4 fuselage parts per kit and I'm working on two kits. Yeah, that's lots of holes. Anyway, here is my the first one in work. Ed
  4. Great scheme for the Mustang. This one is looking good. Ed
  5. Here's what I'm starting with. A fairly common and well known kit. This will receive some modifications and become an F-82K CAS/COIN fighter. I haven't yet decided on the colors and markings; lots of choices and options. Actually, I'm building two of these kits simultaneously. A real world F-82 along with this What If. This should keep me busy. Ed
  6. I'm a little late getting started. It's been a busy couple of weeks. I have a 1/72 Monogram F-82G that will become and F-82K CAS/Coin Attack a/c. I'm still undecided as to the colors and markings. Still have some time to decide. Ed
  7. Impressive. A masterful bit of work on that old kit. Welldone. Ed
  8. We're getting closer. Less than 3 weeks to IPMS Atlanta Show on 3/9/13. Ed
  9. IPMS Atlanta is sponsoring the IPMS/USA Region 3 regional Show and Contest on March 9, 2013 in Marietta, GA. More information at our Website: IPMS Atlanta Hope to see some of you there. Ed
  10. I always thought the TBF Avenger had a great name. It shows up in the Pacific early in the war and the name itself tells you why it's there. Ed
  11. Some more shots An overhead view: http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc250/esveum/100_6602.jpg[/img]"] The view from behind the cameraman. http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc250/esveum/100_6593.jpg[/img]"] A close up of the cameraman. The camera and tripod are scratchbuilt using styrene strip and sheet. http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc250/esveum/100_6598.jpg[/img]"] Ed
  12. This is a 1/72 diorama showing a group of US troops who have come across a "Karl" Morser heavy mortar and this is being recorded for posterity. The "Karl" and it's ammo carrier are a Hasegawa kit. The Deuce and Half and the 20mm AA halftrack are Hasegawa. The 2 M3 halftracks are Italeri. The Jeep and Kublewagen are Academy. The figures are from a variety of sources and many were modified to more appropriate poses. Overall shot: http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc250/esveum/100_6589.jpg[/img]"] The "Karl" with GI's climbing all over it. http://i213.photobucket.com/albums/cc250/esveum/10
  13. A superb model. You definitely deserve a Jack after completing this one. Cheers. Ed
  14. I have that kit and will send you a copy. You should get the email shortly. Ed
  15. It's funny, but with the enlarged fuselage and the big bulge on the bottom, it's starting to look more like an A-7 in profile. Looking forward to seeing more of this one. Ed
  16. If you don't mind a bit of scratchbuilding, you can find some plastic easter eggs. (Get the hard styrene ones, not the soft flexible ones) Cut off the end to the size you need. Then add some thin rods, wires, and other little bits to make it look right. Ed
  17. Very carefully with a brush. Seriously, yes I just hand brush them. Which works for me in 1/72 scale. Although I use a mix of dark gray and aluminum to give it that dark metallic appearance. Ed
  18. The real trick with this one is to keep all the wings, booms canards all lined up during assembly. I also found the landing gear to be flimsy and replaced them with new ones from wire and rod. Ed

    "What airbrush do I use?" I'm still using my 30+ year old Paasche H and my almost 20 year old Paasche VL. Both are rugged, dependable, easy to use and easy to clean. They are a bit heavier and bulkier than many of the newer brushes, but I have no complaints. And they work fine for what I do. Including 1/72 freehand painted camo patterns. Ed
  20. I built the Testors/Italeri B-57G version back in the early 90's. Overall, I was happy with the kit. The fit was good, the detail was good (for the time) and it looks like a B-57 when you get it done. Ed
  21. Nice one Bill. Too bad I missed the meeting last night. I assume you took it. Ed
  22. Here's another beauty. The Mig-9L. A modified Mig 9 used for testing guidance systems for early cruise missiles. Ed
