  1. Hello, I am looking for 16 1/48 M117 750 lb bombs and 3 Multiple Ejector Racks (MERs) for an F-105D project. I know there are several aftermarket choices for both, but buying the quantity of Brassin bombs I need would mean a second mortgage, so if anyone has some spare M117s, that would be greatly appreciated. I will gladly pay a reasonable price plus shipping. Thank you in advance! Justin
  2. Hello, I am looking for the AeroMaster 1/48 decal sheet 48-626 Marauders Best Sellers Pt. 1 sheet, and specifically the 397th BG decals for "Milk Run Express". I'm willing to pay reasonable price plus shipping. Thank you! Justin
  3. I've used their number stencils before for AF serial numbers. I'll echo that they are thin and release from the backing relatively quickly. I didn't have too many issues with them, they suited my needs quite well, but these were white number stencils, so you can't mess those up too badly. Justin
  4. Hello, As the title states,I'm looking for the instrument panel and control stick from the Monogram/Revell 1/48 A-10 Warthog. If you've used a resin cockpit for yours and still have the parts and would be willing to let them go, I'd be more than happy to pay the shipping. Thank you! Justin
  5. Let's hear it. What do you use when your plane is a tailsitter? I've used everything from two-part epoxy putty to small nuts, large bolts, and spare sprue cut and glued together. Do you have a particular medium or objects you generally use? Justin
  6. I'm very sorry for your loss. I can't even begin to imagine the heartbreak you and your wife must be feeling right now. Please accept my family's most sincere condolences.
  7. Nice work, Sean. Looks like it was a busy year for you. I especially like the white rabbit Phantom build. I built the earlier VX-4 scheme of Vandy 5 about two years ago for a friend's father who was plane captain of her during the early 70's. Justin
  8. Very cool, Sebastijan! Justin

  10. And the final installment of this build: After doing some further weathering, including a coat of Future before the decals, another coat of Future after the decals, and a wash, final assembly was done. I wanted it to look war-weary. Here are results of my efforts: Bottom Top Left: Top Right (yes, I know the blue demarcation line doesn't line up properly on this side, but I didn't know that until I had the decals already wet down): Overall, I'm pleased with the results. It was a fun build, took me about three weeks to
  11. And now we continue with where we left off. After fixing the various fit issues, sanding, and priming, I was ready to start painting. I started with the bottom, covering it in Tamiya Light Blue, following it up with some Tamiya Smoke to do some shading and stains. After getting the bottom squared away, I turned to the top, using MM Flat White Acryl along with more Tamiya Smoke for shading and stains. I also used Tamiya Sky Blue for the tail. I then masked the bare metal areas around the exhaust and painted those with a combinat
  12. Hello all, I submit my entry for the group build. This is the 1/48 Hobbycraft Lavochkin La-7. The kit is a basic kit, with not a lot of detail to be found anywhere. The cockpit is very basic, as are the landing gear wells. That being said, the kit can be built to look the part, so without any further ado, here we go: Here's the kit: I started construction with the cockpit. As you can see, the cockpit detail is fairly spartan with some simplistic instrument panel detail, as well as sidewall detail. But since the canopy comes closed as the onl
