  1. You putty any damn way you want and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Try a daily affirmation. Look at yourself in the mirror and say to yourself, "I'm good, I'm handsome, and gosh darn it, I putty my models just fine!" But, seriously, looking good.
  2. Doesn't seem to have been any activity on his Facebook page since Dec. His website appears to be gone. Don't know what to tell you. I used to deal with him a lot when he had his webstore. He was a trustworthy merchant. All I can say, unless someone else has more info, is to keep trying, else contact your credit card or PayPal or whatever you used to pay to see about getting your money back.
  3. Welcome! There's a great bunch of guys, and some gals I think, here with a wealth of knowledge. Many with personal experience from serving in the armed forces of whatever country they are from. Glad to have you!!
  4. See, that's what happens when you don't let your enamel primer completely set before putting a coat of acrylic paint over it (or is it visa versa). The rest of the model looks OK.
  5. I've never seen any photos other than the early camo scheme and the current scheme. Well there have been a few one-offs for air shows, but that's it as far as I know.
  6. What a loss. I love Monty Python and all its crew. Crazy genius', all of them. I have to watch The Holy Grail at least once a year, along with The Meaning of Life (my two favorite of their movies). Sigh... all good things come to an end.
  7. You're kidding right? Edit: I see that you can see the difference but that you don't care. That's fine, its up to you. That you strung us along before revealing that you can see the difference just makes you a troll in my book.
  8. Wow, that's like night and day. Amazing work at shaping and blending whatever you are using for putty. I will be very interested in seeing what is needed to get it to where you have.
  9. Alcohol based lacquer, I believe. Once I found out they airbrush better with Mr. Color Leveling thinner or Tamiya lacquer thinner too, it opened a whole new door for me. I've airbrushed water based acrylics with limited success, but prefer lacquers and enamels. I have yet to try something like Mission Models acrylics. I hear they are very good, but I'm hooked on lacquers like Mr Color, MRP and AKAN solvent based lacquer (they make a water based acrylic one too). I use Vallejo for brush painting details. One nice thing about AKAN paints is that you can get the same color in lacquer and water based paint. I spray with the lacquer based and touch up or paint small parts using a brush with the water based paint of the same color.
  10. I thinking the same thing. I modified the Hasegawa boat tail and used it. Looks OK from a distance, but doesn't withstand close scrutiny. Same for the gun vents. I'm on the fence about this. I'm afraid I'll mess things up more if I try to remove what I have on it already. Damn you Phase Hanger!!
  11. That original post is really interesting and informative. Thanks KursadA!
  12. Indeed, I remember paper straws. Many places have stopped using plastic ones. You can get reusable plastic straws that come with a cleaning brush for the inside, for those that refuse to give them up. As far as kit sprues, I was wondering if instead of a plastic bag for each sprue, use just one bag but separate the sprues with thin paper to protect them. Just thinking.
  13. "Is it finally dead?", he whispered. "Almost four days since the last post.", came the reply. "I think its dead", he said with building confidence. He stood up and looked around. "No one here. I think its safe to come out." Slowly, from the many corners of the thread, those who had hidden so long in fear began to stand up. They looked around tentatively. Carefully, they started walking away. Quiet sobbing could be heard. "I thought it would never end," she said and let out a long sigh. From all corners, they could be seen, slowly making their way out. Some holding onto each other for support. To be continued????
