  1. I listen to all the scale modeling podcast but I am partial to The ModelGeeks........๐Ÿ˜‰ They are all awesome to listen too while working at the modeling bench. I like youtube too, but I find myself getting distracted and paying more attention to the TV screen and less to my bench top. We just released EP 07, if you get a chance check it out.

  5. Hey folks, Need a little help, I am in the process of building a Tamiya 1/48 P-51D and I am attempting my first ever "open engine cowl" build. I have a new resin 1/48 Packard V-1650-7 engine by Resin 2 Detail. (if you haven't check this motor out you need to it AWSOME!!) Anyway I am planning on using the Verlinden #1170 update kits motor mounts and I have the kit but I am missing the instructions. Would anyone out there have the instructions that they could scan? Thanks in advance! Darrin

    Tamiya 1/48 P-51D

    Hey all, I am considering building the Tamiya 1/48 P-51D and I was wondering now if anyone out there has any insight into adding the Verlinden Engine and upgrade kit? I search for videos of a build but no joy. Thanks Darrin
  7. Hey all, I posted this over in the TwoBobs thread as well but thought I might drop it here too. I am getting together the materials for a Texas Air National Guard Viper and desperately need a set of the TwoBobs 48-076 TX ANG Decals. Would anyone happen to have a set that they would like to sell? Twobobs 48-076 Thanks for looking and if you happen to have a set please drop me a note!! Thanks again.
  8. Thanks for all the kind words. It has been a along time and it feels good to building again. Like I had mentioned before its got it's issues but I chalk them up as opportunities to learn and make the next one better. Brian, I just went with what the kit called out and that was the Tamyia XF-18 Medium Blue and XF-2 Flat White fixed 3/1. I am thinking that my next build is going to be the Tamiya 1/48 BF109E-4 and for that I am going to use the Vallejo Air RLM colors. Regards Darrin
  9. Here's my latest build. I have been out of the hobby for over 10 years and being that this is the first kit that I have attempted it was more of a test bed for the many techniques that i had lost. I learned a lot during this build and the next one will be even better. Can only go up from here! There are issues but it will make a great desk display. Thanks for looking
  10. Almost completed 1/48 Tamiya F4F-4. Display stand is in work and still need the landing lights put in. Will finish completely this weekend. It's my first kit in 10 years so please be gentle. LOL
  11. I just picked these up on EBay. http://m.ebay.com/itm/191152896290?txnId=1111221061009 I used to use the long pipettes but these are more durable and actually have small measuring markings on the side. I can post a detailed picture for comparison if you like. Dj
  12. Hey all Im in need of a little spoon feeding here. I am about to break ground on my first German WWII aircraft, Tamiyas 1/48 BF109E-4/7 Trop. I am planning to do this on in the color scheme on the box which leads me to my need for the spoon feeding. Damn there are a lot of options for RLM colors!! Vallejo, Gunze etc... Can anyone out there lead me in the right direction here? Looking for any and all opinions on the different RLM Paint Lines. Looking forward to hearing from you all Thanks Dj

    Tamiya 1/48 F4F-4

    I'll be 100% honest, the wings were in such bad shape from the glue I tried to use that I almost threw the kit out and started over. I thought about it for a few days and decided I would try and salvage the thing so what you are seeing is my attempt to fix and experiment with new techniques in the process.
