  1. Great start! I'll be following with great interest.
  2. Thank you Scooby and happy new year everybody!
  3. Looks wonderful all around. I like the overall weathering and walkways. But the cluster bombs and the maverick really stand out.
  4. I have FB and actively use it. My observations: ARC forums: It has really slowed down over the years. If you haven't been on FB or other platforms, easy to think the hobby is dying. I still post my progress pics here, as these forums are a nice way to catalogue one's progress builds and final pics in a single, quickly accessible link. But I have to admit, while ARC used to be a great source of info, techniques and news, I have been learning and improving less and less through ARC over the years. Some of the modelers I used to look up to are also no longer posting here. But they are
  5. That's looking fantastic. Can't wait to see all the decals and weathering.
  6. Looks awesome. I love all your DS builds. What colors and brand did you sue for the two ghost grays? Also, for everyone else's view, I think this is the link with all your DS builds (please correct me if I am wrong): https://www.dstorm.eu/pages/en/other/builds/builds_index.html I love all the stories that go along with the builds.
  7. Awesome model and base. That spinning prop looks so real. How did you like the kit detail and fit wise?
  8. Looking very good. HB looks quite alright. Not sure why it's never been a top contender. Are there shape issues? Details look pretty nice.

  10. I am selling my 1/48 AMK Kfir C2/C7. Here are the deals of the kit: https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10232681 I bought this brand new from a local hobby shop a few months ago. I removed some of the pieces and neatly cleaned them up (ready for painting). The only parts that are missing are the drop tanks on the wings. The central drop tank is still there. I am asking for $30 shipped (within U.S.). Or make me an offer... PayPal preferred. thanks.
  11. They look awesome. Great reference pics too. The cans are superb. You also had a Hasegawa version of a similar scene going on too IIRC. I hope you haven't given up on that. That was incredible also, and particularly all the tricks you had shared with the cans.
  12. Color match vs sheen match are two different things. The easiest way to do what you are trying to do is to decant the can and airbrush it. Only then should you expect what you spray through the airbrush to match what is in the can. Anything else has many parameters that would be hard to dial in unless you did endless trial and error. The context matters too. If you have a large area of already painted yellow (can), I can see blending in a different yellow (LP) by spraying more broadly beyond the target area and later clear coating to brig everything to the same sheen.
