  1. With extra time on my hands I have been looking on eBay to help me figure out current market prices. I am thinking of selling a few things, likely on modelling sites and not the ‘bay’. I have sold things there over a decade ago, but the shipping is now beyond stupid. What is different? I guy in Australia is selling a bottle of paint for close to the same reasonable price as an Asian supplier. But the Australian guy wants $55 for shipping and the Asian place it is free. Many photo-etch frets are saying $75 for shipping. I can mail P.E. for around $5. Is the shipping quote determined by a faulty algorithm? Or just clueless sellers or guys trying to gouge on shipping?
  2. The 1:48 Hasegawa Super Hornet family has a raised panel around the slime light on the vertical stabilizer. Is this accurate? The rest are flush with fuselage. There are not really any great reference books available for the Super Hornets at the moment. The detail and scale book isn’t worth the paper it is written on (2020 revised edition is much better than D&S #69) and the Reid Publication book isn’t currently listed for sale. I have looked at some online photos and am leaning towards it being flush and dreading sanding it off. Help from the deck handlers and other expects would be greatly appreciated. Ron
  3. aviaeology is mostly RCAF, they just look like RAF & RAAF markings. But if you read the instructions super close you will notice that the squadron numbers are mostly 400-449. Not like the copy cat Aussies with their 450-467, or the Brits with numbers from 1-300 or over 500. 😃
  4. I think it was a Maxsmodels video I was watching, where it was explained that the biggest problem for accurate miniatures was the upper management from monogram and Revell that started AM were paying themselves big corporate salaries like they were accustomed to, rather than the more typical scrape by by pay yourself nothing business start up that the company needed. Not sure of the truth of that it was just what the video pointed out.
  5. Do do you like the length of bristles on the testers glue or the length of the handle so you dip down to the end of the bottle? Because the Tamiya brush shaft length is adjustable. If you want it longer just give it a gentle tug with some needle nose pliers. I learned of this two weeks ago, saw a video on it.
  6. Can any of the 1:48 Great Wall Hobby T-33 kits be built as an RCAF aircraft straight from the box? If not which one is closest and what needs to be done with it?

  8. Just remember that stuff is a lot stronger than mr. thinner. Works great in cleaning paint from the airbrush, as you say better than the hobby brands. Just don’t use it on styrene.
  9. I don’t know much about Strykers. But I have two trumpeter usmc lav-25 kits and two LAV-III. Will these be of any use to you? All in 1:35.

  11. I also find that cheap dollar store cotton swabs are sometime better for modelling than the expensive home care brands. The dollar store ones have a lot less cotton and leave behind a lot less fibres. The tamiya and mr hobby ones are great too, just really pricey.
