  1. I would think it would be easier to get another sheet from that kit (test it, and if necessary, put a coating over it before using). You could make a post in the Spares Box forum. I have most Hasegawa boxings (and I don't need any of the decals), but I think that's one of the few I don't have.
  2. I will be facing this soon (assuming I actually finish all the projects I'm working on). I plan on rotating the display, boxing up the older items. A box can hold quite a few 1/48 or smaller kits, and in a house that can even be stuck in the attic, although in an apartment space might be a bigger problem. I'll probably start hanging more as well, freeing up the shelf.
  3. I have had problems with their F-16 canopies. I hate them. I have had 2 come cracked in the box. I unmasked one on their F-16XL and cracked during painting, so I got a replacement from them. That one is deformed and doesn't fit right in the closed position. I'm going to look at adapting other brands to their kits..
  4. The only other scheme I've seen so far is the "Felon" solid gray (Have Glass?) scheme. Twobobs has a sheet with these two at the printers.
  5. So far there have had these airframes delivered to them: 85-1472 85-1474 85-1493 85-1501 86-0219 86-0222 86-0229
  6. 37875 is less "white" than 37925, so there is some (almost imperceptible) darkening to it. I've also noticed that Tamiya white is lighter (brighter?, whiter?) than 36875.
  7. Does anyone else here find it annoying that Scalehobbyist and Spruebrothers carry different lines? I've found AK and MRP as my replacements for Modelmaster, but each one has exclusive retailers, so to stock I have to order from both, and with shipping rates being so high, I end up ordering more than I prefer. I'm starting to miss the days when I could run to my local retailer and pick up some FS colors easily.
  8. If you're airbrushing, can you mix flat and gloss? Or, are you specifically looking for spray cans?
  9. Rustoleum never acquired Testors. Both are owned by RPM, who acquired Rustoleum in 1994, which didn't have any effect on Testors. But, it is clear that RPM is not interested in the hobby business, they have moved to "crafts" - lots of bright florescent and glitter colors.
  10. Never had a problem, and every kit I've obtained in 20 years has been through the mail. I suppose it's possible that a box could get creased on the corners, but I've never cared about the boxes.
  11. Exactly. I've watched an F-16 change from a warm metallic bronze to a deep dark gray in a few minutes, as the clouds pass over.
  12. It's going. Post your pics in the In-progress forum.
  13. I've been using Duplicolor auto paint for my white priming. Because white is such a pain to cover as it uses so much, I was looking for a slightly cheaper alternative while still getting high quality results. It sprays very fine, and dries like other lacquer model paints. I don't use it for a full coat, but to get the base built up and then covered with another white. So far, so good, i think I'll keep using it.
  14. Got some Alclad Primer on it, and tested out AK's 36270 on the horizontal stabs. Unfortunately, the color is quite off, so I'll have to break into the Model Master stash for that.
  15. I'll jump in with another one. This time, a fully operation F-16C from the Minnesota ANG, from back when we had Block 25s here.
