  1. Superb work on that base. Those circles are spot on. Thanks for sharing.
  2. That looked like a very clean cut from the demo. Thanks Dave
  3. Hi all, I was wondering if there are any tool out there to cut perfect small circles down to 6 mm diameter? I want to cut vinyl mask in sizes from 6 to 9 mm diameter. TIA Triet
  4. Not sure how bad the fog is, but if you buff it out with Tamiya polishing compound, it may restore the gloss. Triet
  5. Oh wow! This is incredible. The decals looked like they were painted on, no edges visible. The metal look is fantastic. Regards Triet
  6. Does anyone know whatever happened to the molding tools since HC closed down? I haven't seen any release of the kits for a long time. Wonder who owns it now. Hoping for a plan to re-release this kit.
  7. One thing to watch out for is which is the right Bearcat versions served in the theater. I think the -1 and -1B were (short tail) in Indochina. I don't think the -2 ever made it there.

  11. Exactly what I was looking for. TY Rich TC
  12. I was wondering if any after market photo etch out there for 1/48 US jets? Thanks TrietCam
  13. I'm replacing the whole upper O-1 bird dog cabin windows with a one clear piece. Didn't like the kit's individual windows, they all had terrible distortion. So I'm looking for adhesives with super grip. I just tried Gorilla epoxy. This stuff dried rock hard after 1 hour. Just have to be careful not to let it smear into the windows areas.
