  1. Kinetic's 1/48 F-16D with CD 48037, "F-16C/D International Vipers Part 1"
  2. What he said. HW store lacquer (cellulose) thinner to clean airbrush for any lacquer or enamel paint. Don't dare use HW store lacquer to thin paint. Don't waste your money using model paint thinner to clean your airbrush.
  3. Aircraft tire snow chains? If you're going to include no landing gear, how about these tests of a flexible rubber deck? The mind boggles... I was certain I had first read about such efforts in one of @Tailspin Turtle's fascinating blog posts, but I can't find it...
  4. This is a fun photo driving home the size of those wheels 🙂
  5. You might bring your props to your LHS to see if you can resin blades that are similar or perhaps a little larger so they can be reshaped. Alternately, you might try to shape a replacement blade from plastic strip. HTH -- dnl
  6. The Transavia PL-12 Airtruk is very cool! IMHO, it's better looking that its predecessor, the Bennet Airtruck.

  11. I wish I were only imagining what this was like.
  12. I don't have to look at that photograph to fill-in-the-blank. New research will completely invalidate the most difficult-to-address part of your model right after you post finished pictures. A new-tool highly detailed, well-fitting kit will be released right after you complete that old dimensionally-accurate-but-devoid-of-detail kit with fully scratch built cockpit, wheel wells, and landing gear. (Lindberg 1/48 F11F-1 Tiger, do you hear me?) A new-tool highly detailed, well-fitting, and very affordable kit will be released right after you finally acquire the
