  1. Is tenax 7R out of production?

    I use the Tamiya Extra Thin Cement (Quick Drying) and it works very quickly. I like it better than the normal Tamiya Extra thin cement. Here's what the bottle looks like. https://www.ebay.com/i/362127305892?chn=ps
  2. Scalehobbyist is the place to get these paints from: https://www.scalehobbyist.com/catagories/browse.php?kw=xtreme,metal HTH
  3. Badger Stynylrez Primer

    I've sprayed Gunze, Tamiya, AK Interactive, and AMMO paints over the Badger Stynylrez primer without any issues.

  5. 1/48 Hasegawa F-4G Wild Weasel, Clark AB Philippines, 1988

    Yes, I plan on going to Blizzcon. Are you going down? I want to do the 1/48 Academy F-4 B/C/J Any of them will do! :-)

    Michael, This is an awesome build! Thanks for the photos on your mottling/weathering of the plane, I'll have to give that a try. And the step by step instructions on how you did the exhaust is extremely helpful. I'll definitely give that a try. Looking at this masterpiece, makes me want to immediately toss aside all of my current projects, and start an F-4 build! When you applied the camouflage, did you do it freehand with an airbrush or did you use some masking? QT

    Kris, Awesome looking Spitfire! Can't wait to see the finished product.
  8. 1/48 Hasegawa F-16C Fighting Falcon

    Awesome build Michael! Did you mask or paint the camouflage pattern free hand? I love the weathering that you did on it! Can't wait to see your next build! QT
  9. Akan paint

    I have used AKAN acrylics for painting a Hasegawa Su-27 and the paint goes on very well. I'd recommend it to my friends to use.

    Still aches like crazy, but able to do a few things now. So, back at the modelling bench!

    Here are a few progress photos. Haven't done much work on her. Hoping to resume working on her this weekend.
  12. Thanks guys.

    Everyone knows that the Eagle reigns supreme and all others bow down before her!

    I'll be at the meeting on Sunday. Yes, it is a quarterly contest this week. The theme is USMC. That would be cool if you brought it in as an in-progress build. I hurt my back in February, slipped on some ice at home, and been tweaking it ever since whenever I try to do too much at once.

    I reinjured my back so it has been slow going Kris. Got a little work in on the Spitfire over the weekend, will post a few photos later.

    Stefan, You are correct, there are photos that show it in many different colors, but the consensus seems to be that they were painted Russet in most cases. That's where the problem comes in, I think I'll have to try and mix up something that comes close to what is seen in the photos, as the Russet paint I have seems too reddish in color.
