  1. M1A2 Abrams TUSK I - Meng 1:35

    That's a fantastic build. I love the level of detail of the accessories, and I think it is weathered the perfect amount. The chain around the antenna looks completely natural.
  2. Hasegawa A-4F 1/48

    A truly remarkable build. You should post these images in the Skyhawk group build thread to preserve it for posterity.
  3. Super Hornet shoots down Syrian SU-22

    Why would they do that? This guy shot down a plane used to bomb jihadis.
  4. Pastel dust or watercolor in water with a little dishwashing soap.
  5. F-35 news roundup

    No politics.
  6. 1:72 Trumpeter J-10A

    That looks really nice. You did a fine job on the paintwork - it looks spot on. I've done some work on this kit, and while there are certainly fit problems in a number of locations (especially those ventral fins), if this is the worst kit you have ever worked on you have lead a charmed life.
  7. I added a few things to the Trumpeter Su-30MKK - probes and the antenna behind the cockpit, proper pylons instead of the old-style ones, the bumps that hold the landing gear bracket, and a refueling probe. While I think Trumpeter decals are the best, the numbers provided were the wrong font and size, so I printed new ones myself. I also made ones for the formation lights. Thanks to Stevens International for providing a new canopy because none was included in the box.

    Another danger is that he could end up doing it for nothing. Cameras are common now, and newspapers and magazines don't have the money or reader interest to pay a lot for images of foreign conflicts. Here are samples from a war photographer who went to Mosul and ended up not finding any buyers: https://petapixel.com/2017/07/05/no-one-buy-photos-free-mosul-2017/
  9. A-4 walk around pics needed

    The door in the hump leads to the fuel port, which is basically just a cylinder that sticks up a bit in the center of the space. You can look back into the hump and see some of the black boxes there as well. On the other side of the hump from the door is a cooling intake, so a bit of ducting should lead from there back to the black boxes.
  10. Super Hornet shoots down Syrian SU-22

    If we don't maintain OPSEC about a Navy aircraft, then the aircraft's family may be put in danger.
  11. This is based on on an vehicle in the Iraqi theatre which did have the old-style driver periscope modeled in the kit. The decals that didn't silver were created at home. Build thread showing some of the scratchbuilt details. Besides those, the reflectors were also scratchbuilt. I might weather it a tiny bit more, but not much. It's a good kit, but the two baskets and the smoke grenade launchers are very distinctive on the Warrior and it took a lot of work to make them right. I really, really hate tracks. The ones on this kit took forever, with constant tearing apart and retrying. I will never ever buy a tracked vehicle again.
  12. Flat Clear Lacquer as a decal bonder?

    You have to test it to find out. I've tried many different clears to seal my homemade decals, and have had very inconsistent results.
  13. Model Master Acryl

    I've used the Model Master Acryl thinner and the Tamiya acrylic thinner and they both worked well.
  14. I'm not saying they are missing. I'm saying they are separate parts for a reason.
  15. I'm guessing the flaps are designed to be cut because they didn't mold on the actuators in the circled areas.
