  1. Beautiful model and some superb photography. Wondering what kind of lens you have used.
  2. Revell. When you see its surface details, you wont believe its a Revell kit. Their best kit of all that I have seen from them.
  3. I have a Monogram Voodoo in my stash. A beautiful kit with very good details. Panel lines however are raised. I have not been able to start it as I have not been able to decide between scribing the panel lines or keep them raised. I still dont know the answer.
  4. YouTube is putting more and more ads in between videos and before. There are some ads that you dont have option to skip. This is a ploy to force you to their Premium service. The best advice I can give you is to install ABP Plus add on. Its available for both Firefox and Chrome. No ads at all anywhere on any sites.
  5. This delay is quite usual these days. I ordered some stuff from BNA Model World. Its a great store from Australia. Their service is top quality. The items were ordered in April and shipped in April. I received them yesterday, June 22nd. I ordered some decals from USA. Usually lettermail takes about 8 business days. I received the decals a month after they were shipped. There are very limited flights and then there is a limited staff working at postal services. On top of that, since most of the shopping is closed, people are buying online. So instead of workload coming down due to pandemic, postal service workload has increased. For example, Canada Post is now delivering regular mail on weekends as well.
  6. The door mounted missiles look very weird. Wonder what kind of pylons they would be? Also, the ejection seat in demo F-16 is different from ejection seat we find in most of the F-16 kits.
  7. I have used a macro lens, a wireless remote and good steady tripod to do some closeup photography. You dont need a new camera. You need a macro lens that fits your camera. Usually take pictures at high f-stops like f/20 or f/22 to fully focus the object at close range. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235062402-opel-blitz-with-flak-38-dragon-kit/
  8. Of all Testors range, I only liked their Metalizer line. They have been out of Canadian market for a very long time.
  9. Oh My God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  10. Beautiful German camo. I had stopped so many times from doing a German aircraft and its because I couldn't even do mottle effect properly. This is definitely out of my skills zone.
  11. This is such a sad news. Wingnuts puts so much effort in putting together their kits. Even if you dont end up buying, their website is a great experience to just browse. The attention to detail and effort they had put to research kits is quite enormous. They will be sorely missed.
  12. I m not a fan of WW1 kits but WnW quality has impressed and convinced modelers like me to consider WnW kits. If the news of their closing down is true, I m really shocked. I have a few kits shortlisted which I may or may be able to build but still want to buy. The problem though is that they are quite expensive and buying a few together could be a challenge.
  13. Theres another one https://www.sincerehobby.com/
