  1. Airfix 1/144 Shuttle Orbiter

    Pete, Are those Hotdog's shuttle decals? They look great! Mike.
  2. Airfix 1/144 Shuttle Orbiter

    Pete, It should win awards! This came out fantastic! Your shuttles have always been a big inspiration for me. Mike.
  3. M*A*S*H Helicopter Olive Drab Color?

    I happen to have a bottle of Testors MM Olive Drab FS34087 and it does look just like the Helicopter in the above picture. It also looks a lot like the Olive Drab on the one in this picture below. I know there were different Olive Drab colors used. Was FS34087 actually the one used during the Korean War? 5760876302_da844aa509_b by Michael Scarola, on Flickr
  4. Does anyone know what Olive Drab color was used on the Army aircraft, specifically the helicopters during the Korean war? I know there are different FS and ANA Olive Drab colors. I picked up an MRC 1/35 Bell 47D that I'll be building like a TV series M*A*S*H Helicopter. a_09_zpsaf9f51f1 by Michael Scarola, on Flickr MASH201_zps31633bbf by Michael Scarola, on Flickr
  5. Manfred, I'm glad to see you like the Bare Metal Foil. I use it for the chrome trim on car kits and it works great and sticks forever. Mike.
  6. If the surface is smooth and you burnish it down enough it will look like chrome or household foil.
  7. Manfred, When you burnish the foil down it will look shinier. Mike.
  8. Manfred, I only use the New Improved Chrome on car models. It needs to be thin and be able to make it around compound curves. I'm a member on the Model Cars Magazine forum and a lot of members there don't like the Ultrabright Chrome. They say the Ultrabright Chrome is thicker and has some problems working down into subtle details and doesn't stick as well. This is all I know about it. Mike.
  9. Manfred, Don't order the 'Ultrabright Chrome'. It's harder to work with. When you order the Bare Metal Foil order the one that says 'New Improved Chrome'. The 'New Improved Chrome' is the good stuff. Mike.
  10. Hi Manfred, The Molotow chrome marker is great for adding chrome to small areas. Don't spray any clear over it. Clear will case the chrome to turn silver. Mike.
  11. These came out perfect! Manfred, Did you get the Frosted Ultra Detail or the Frosted Extreme Detail? Mike.
  12. Hi Manfred, You can get foil adhesive which should also work for gluing the foil strips. Mike.
  13. Hopefully I'll have a shuttle project to work on in the coming year.
