  1. I made the same mistake the first time I used Tamiya wash, I assumed it was acrylic. The formula is enamel based so enamel thinner is required.
  2. It looks like the SAC shield to me. If not this decal sheet may help you. http://www.caracalmodels.com/cd144016.html
  3. There looks to be some poor fitting parts, but you have made a great job of it
  4. I have 3/4 finished one sitting on the shelf of doom. The fit of the escape capsule to the fuselage requires care to ensure a good fit. It's been a while, but I remember using styrene to fill the gaps. My build stalled at the decaling stage because of the less than satisfactory after market decals I was using.
  5. I worry more about dust than carcinogens in paint. Anyone ever been to London? Blow your nose after a day walking around London and it will be black. That will kill you faster than minimal exposure to paint.
  6. Hi all I am about to start building the Revell 1/32 F-15C and this thing has millions of panel lines, half of which I am certain don't exist on the real thing. My memories of the real thing don't include panel lines being noticeable. No doubt they are all there, you just can't really see them. Now, I have started filling the more dubious and less obvious panel lines but I am wondering, should I go whole hog and fill 90% of them? Will it look silly with most of them gone? What do you guys think?
  7. According to the text below the silhouette, the 4th of January 1989 is the when. Superhornet's can time travel?
  8. The landing gear door on the closest jet is pretty beat up. Also interesting are the two rabbit kill markings.
  9. Just remember with the Tamiya kit to sand off the wing root bulges
  10. Speed Hunter Graphics make a nice sheet which includes a number of Block 30 Vipers. https://www.reidairpublishing.com/decals/heritage-vipers This sheet includes some war birds https://www.reidairpublishing.com/decals/guardian-vipers I'm a fan of the Vermont, Alabama and New Mexico (road runner) markings myself.
  11. You should buy from Luckymodel.com, Raymond the owner even posts here.
  12. Very impressive for your first model. You have a bright future in this hobby.
  13. Now PJ can finally get back to what he should be doing, making gory horror movies.
  14. I brought it from Hannants about 1 year ago. Lesson learned it guess. Learned a lot from this thread too.
  15. I am posting this to vent my frustration after trying to use Super Scale decals this morning and having them disintegrate before my eyes. The sheet, an 1/32 Alabama ANG F-16 with a nice red tail. I expected the large one piece tail decal to be a challenge, but nothing I couldn't handle. I was careful, the surface was glossy and I even followed the decal preparation instructions, but what happened? The thing broke up before I could even get it off the sheet, so badly in fact that there is no hope of putting it back together. Not learning my lesson I thought I would try the other si
