  1. Thanks, Petar! The canopy is a separate piece--and I was thinking along the same lines as you relative to vacuforming for the windows. Yeah...planking is a pain. If I do another build like that, I doubt I'll go the planking route again. Walt (aka Treadhead)
  2. I'm new here, and this is my first in progress build. (actually it's my first scratchbuild period) This my rendition of a small people hauler shuttle that would ferry astronauts back and forth from an orbiting spacecraft -- or station. The parts are taped together so you can get an idea of what the actual ship would look like when finished. It's about a foot long in 1/48th scale. I'm going to cast the pieces in plaster, and use the cast pieces for vacuforming. I want to add a decent interior into this thing. This pic is of the pieces before I skinned them. Basically it's a styrene plan
  3. As the Russians would say, "Harasho!". Which means great! You sir are a master modeler!
  4. This is the best build I have ever seen. And I've seen a lot. What more can I say than that? Words escape me!
  5. This is so good that it gives me goosebumps!!
  6. I love it. My Favorite is the RB-66A. I always loved that model as a kid. I lost count of how many I'd built. My dad used to work on those when he was stationed at RAF Sculthorpe, England back in the '50s. Now that he's gone, I've got a sentimental attachment to that bird.
  7. This is the work of a master! I'm amazed! It's quality work for any age, let alone 12! When I was your son's age, I wasn't even using paint, and my models were oozing with glue:). I haven't improved much with age.... Once again, WOW!!
  8. Amazing work! Hard to believe that it's in 1/72nd. I especially love the work and finishing job on the seats!
  9. Judging from your initial comments, you are far too modest. I enjoyed reading this thread. Beautiful job, sir! I'm hoping to see more soon! :)
  10. This is one of the best Phantom builds I've ever seen!
