  2. IAF F-16B and F-16D Build

    wow - looking really great - are you airbrushing/free-handing the camo colors or masking?
  3. Best PSI for Alclad

    I have been very happy with Sprue Bros - they appear to have the Polished Aluminum in stock: http://store.spruebrothers.com/product_p/alc0105xxx.htm
  4. Back to the pile.

    Heya DonG - I believe I have a Tamiya 1/32 P-51D I would trade for 1/48 as I am trying to downsize some of my stash/interests to the smaller scale, but curious on your more to come mention? Will you be listing any later Hasegawa 1/48 Hornets (E/F) by-chance? Thanks! Patrick

    Thanks for the tips on dropped parts Janissary! Will have to try that out!
  10. VA-192 A-4E/F Skyhawk

    Thanks again for positive feedback! This build took a bit of a hit due to me dropping the model - of course it hit tile and not the carpet and the tip of the tail broke into several small parts and several of the slat rails broke or cracked :( Anyhoo, I have tried to repair - probably gonna need more work though. For replacement slat-rails I got some fine brass strip - they should hold up well even if it gets dropped again :)
  11. Kinetic 1/48 A-6E Intruder

    Thanks for the positive feedback and kind comments! I continue to struggle with finger numbness due to treatment - has anyone here a similar condition and found a solution to finding dropping items? I was thinking maybe placing a black sheet or mat under my work area so I could find lighter colored plastic parts - the current beige carpet eats parts like nothing. I do not even bother looking for small parts any more as it is so frustrating - I just vacuum the entire area then dump out the collection cup and sort thru the crap to find the part. This is not terribly enjoyable though. Anyhow - I continue with the build - the fit of the front wheelbay is pretty poor - both the kit parts and the Wolfpack aftermarket resin bay leave substantial gaps. Anyway, the Wolfpack set at least looks nice. I also ave a set of nice G-Factor brass gear and at least that fits almost perfect to the Wolfpack bay with just some minor adjustments:
