    F-101b Vodoo Revell 1/72

    Remember! This is NOT the 1/48 Revell/Monogram kit. This is the Revell 1/72 kit. Even more to consider and be amazed by the workmanship. C2j

    Adding an astrodome to a 1/72 C-131B - Question

    A quick google search says...most C-131's didn't have an astrodome. Of those pictured that did...there was NO surrounding "anti-glare" panel - everything white. C2j

    1/48 Revell PT-17 Stearman Review/Preview

    Revell really pulled out the stops and produced a SUPERB 1/48 kit of the PT-17 / N2S Stearman biplane. It is a truly great kit and I agree that EVERYONE should buy and build at least one! One thing to point out. When doing their splendid research, they examined two restorations flying in the USA. They copied EVERY detail down to the registration numbers (N65693 and N68837) on the tails and the modern electrical/radio panel (part 71) in the rear cockpit. These are appropriate if you are building models of these modern day Stearman's, but not appropriate for WWII aircraft. Remember most WWII Stearmans's had no electrical system or radio's installed.

    DC-130A VX-30...1/48

    I like what you did with the elevators. Gives a bit of character and is pretty true to the real bird. Overall your work on the bird is OUTSTANDING!! C2j

    S-64F Skycrane

    Wafu, They're not 1/35 or E models, but have you seen thes builds? http://www.hyperscale.com/2011/features/skycrane18rd_1.htm http://www.arcair.com/Gal5/4701-4800/gal4788-CH-54A-Dognon/00.shtm C2j

    S-64F Skycrane

    Wafu, In 1/35 I'd think your build would benefit from decal rivets...if you can stand the expense. C2j

    S-64F Skycrane

    No direct knowledge, but from looking at pictures I'd guess electrically driven fan, possibly thermostatically activated. The housing is certainly big enough to enclose an electric motor and the cooling air drawn in the front would do double duty cooling the motor and the hydraulic system heat exchanger. The benefit of this is a) no loss of power to drive the fan, b) no complicated connection to the drive components that, if they failed could compromise the drive train and 3) simplicity. C2j

    Gee Bee 'Z' colors

    Peter, The Berry Brothers were big producers of aircraft "dope" in the 1930's. Here is a 1930 color palate... Though I have only seen replicas of the GeeBee Z, my bet is on the yellow in the upper left... C2j

    S-64F Skycrane

    WaFu, Only you know what exactly you are looking for, but this seems to cover the rotorhead and swashplate in some detail: https://slideplayer.com/slide/2346172/ When the page opens, at the top of the slideshow box will be a choice of video or slideshow. Click slideshow and expand to full screen. Post pictures of your build! I think the S-64 is a cool bird. C2j

    Revell 1/32 P-51

    I just hate that you had so much trouble with the new Revell P-51D. I can understand your frustration with all the issues you had. Maybe if you were to try another you could do better next time! Maybe Skill Level 5 is just stretching things for you? Always reach for a higher level - it's what makes us grow! C2j
