  1. That must have been a beeyotch to get those off. Great job.
  2. Beautiful job!!! Congratulations! :thumbsup:
  3. Finally making some progress on U-Uncle. The fuselage halves fit very well with minor sanding. Masking of the canopies and turrets took the better part of a day!
  4. I agree. After perusing this forum for the last month, I am very impressed with the quality of work displayed on ARC. There are some real masterpieces! I am building a Canadair Sabre as a memento of my father-in-law who passed away last year. I am sure that there are a ton of people out there in the same situation, who would cherish one of these labours of love as a keepsake of a loved one. When I consider that, as an IT guy, I was getting paid $40/hour to fix people's computers, the skill involved in building these kits is more demanding (in my humble opinion).

  5. Canopy glue? Is there a specific brand you use? I was considering using some of that clear tacky stuff you see on magazines that have CD/DVD's attached to the cover. Thanks, man. BD
  6. Yikes. I'd be interested in seeing what progress you've made. Your fort build was fantastic. Any pics of the Sabre in progress? thanks BD (another Don )

  12. Great build!! He attacked 50 Zeros singlehandedly???!!
  13. LOL. Geez, that happened in my hometown and I never heard about it????? Amazing flying.
  14. I never really understood how small this was until I saw this pic... Amazing job!!!! :worship:
  15. Beautifully done!! Congratulations! :thumbsup:
  16. Hi Mike, Welcome back to cyber-space. The wing gap wasn't too bad and didn't take too much filler. Thanks for your kind comments and suggestions. I made more progress on the gun bay today but am having a heck of a time finding the right combination of glue and material for the wiring. BD
