    My wife, my critters, modeling WWII US aircraft or anything else
  1. OH Boy Very pretty ---1/48? 1/72? So hard to decide-
  2. Well at the end pf the build it is still your model. So unless you need a "dead on accurate" model of a Typhoon for some historically accurate display, at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum. Then let your personal preferences (or the kids) be your guide
  3. This is just another way the Quality modeler displays the art of his craft. The repair of damage so as to be invisible to the average person. p.s. looks like your on your way back 👍
  4. Scale mates has no joy either, looks like a one off. Hay maybe you'll start a trend and people will clammier on your door to buy it from you and you 'll get rich...….OK 'probly not 😁
  5. A thing of beauty your radiator. Well Done. I too like to "craft" needed parts. It fills a need in my quest to create the perfect model.....OK, OK I'm too cheep to by resin and PE---there ya happy?😁
  6. This is a grand looking thing. Glad you got the Tamiya as it seems to work very well. Looking forward to the next installment.
  7. Congratulations on achieving a great weathered aircraft and base. Amazing I could just about feel the heat and dry air
  8. Buzzdubai to ARC and back into the WWM (wild world of modeling). your going to have a blast and soon you'll learn about all the new things that are out there in the aftermarket. The only dumb question is the one you don't ask; So don't hesitate to ask any questions, the answers a free as are the opinions. Enjoy your self!

    F-51D Questions

    you might give the P-51 SIG a shout, they know a thing or two about Mustangs; and are willing to share.
  10. Being from Greece, I thought he worked for Airbus ************************************** timc Well stated explanation of a complex procedure. It's always good for us to learn about the "reason behind" things, so that our ability's to model are able to improve. Now you can understand why, the model lacquer is called Alclad II
  11. Great job I like you prop treatment- very clever and workable for those of us that like to "tinker" with the model. To get kudos from the original artist; must give you a lot satisfactionion. Congratulations.
  12. Looks like you have found us just in time. There are many folks here that will be glad to give you their help and input; and as a plus we can learn from you (??16 cells of A123 batteries wired as 8s2p 4400mAh??) Had not been a consideration for me 'til now, guess I'l have to figure out if my MiniScale 1/72 GMC duce and a half needs some of that-wheew modeling get more complex every day Seriously Welcome and post some pictures of your builds as soon as you can.
  13. 'Cause they would look stupid anywhere else??......Never Mind Seriously your drilling and sanding has got'er done. Good work, may not satisfy some, but for my money a real cool solution, that I'll use on my B-25.
