  1. Cool! Don't forget, youse almost got Iran's F-14's in 1979. The exfiltration of the US Embassy personnel hiding in the Ambassador Taylor's residence killed the deal...
  2. That's awesome! I hope you'll post pix and vids of the launch!!!
  3. It's OK now,. 1129 PT, July 8
  4. Those wings look great! I hope they stand up to creep; the kit's wings didn't. I assume the MCW paints are lacquer. Yes? If so, I've been very happy with the fabulous finishes I get from Mr Color. As you note, quite smooth, with no need for a glossy clear coat prior to decals.
  5. Nice! Were the hand-holds also 3D printed? They look great, too.
  6. That's some fine detail! Did you design the model? One the one hand, it looks like a primed and painted finish. On the other hand, I don't see any color variation around the top details, making me think that's the part as-is.
  7. Done! And here's a movie shot
  8. @southwestforests, that's the one! It is entertaining. Well I think so.
  9. Thanks @phantom, this may be the only time I have something done in your time scale! With a little more filling and filing, it will be ready for paint.
  10. @nspreitler, thanks! It was a fun build with all the scratch building. I'm really happy with the result.
  11. PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE. This masterpiece from Ed Wood Jr is generally regarded as the worst science fiction movie ever. Some argue it's the worst movie ever. If you haven't seen this, do check it out on youtube. The flying saucers shown in the movie were the Lindberg kit from the '50s, which is apparently the first IP science fiction kit. These models were painted silver overall for the movie. Polaris has re-released the kit firmly aimed at Plan 9. Not much to the kit The stand make certain there's no doubt about the subject Sadly, the pilot won't be used

  13. I read that this morning. I didn't know they had ebooks either. While I usually have good reason to criticize Microsoft technologies, at least they had the integrity--and ability--to refund the money spent at their store, so good on them.
  14. Perhaps a picture of the prototype hardware would enable others to identify suitable model versions? FWIW, I use RB Productions 1/32 PE rigging bits for other subjects, but there are other makers.
  15. As noted above, Mr Thinner works perfectly to smooth Tamiya putty while wet as well as once dried (though more patience is required when dried). Mr Thinner won't damage the plastic, so there's no worry about damage to nearby details.
  16. The PE bits are bent and attached. I'm going to paint all these bits separately and then assemble with Formula 560 Canopy Glue.
  17. Ooh! Ooh! That's nice! I definitely want to see this!
  18. I suppose this approach enables the model manufacturer to avoid their box art being cited as offensive--or even illegal--while simultaneously enabling the modeler the opportunity to build an accurate model.

    Metallic paint

    Agree that thinning is required. Also, the type of paint is important. I would avoid lacquers. Check out the videos on youtube for tutorials on brush painting. I searched for "brush paint models" and quite a list was provided. This is the first one in that list
