  1. Thanks Collin! The full bird shot of 400 is what I was looking for!!
  2. Collin Any chance of you pointing me in the direction of a full bird picture of the 151 Super Hornet?
  3. Question: Has anyone come out with the F-35C variant yet? I am not a fan of the F-35 but will add one to the build list. In 1/72 scale preferred>
  4. I had the same issue with the bottle I had last summer. Lost the A/C for a few days. When I received my paints and went to use them I noticed two things. First the reducer smelled and felt the same as the Createx 4012 High Performance Reducer. Tested it out and had no issues. The Poly also seemed to be the same as Createx's 4030 Intercoat and Mix Additive. Tested that as well with no issues. So if you have a Hobby Lobby near by and do not want to order the MM stuff go get those items from Hobby Lobby. Don't forget to use the 40% off online coupon.
  5. RIP Lt. Col. Cole! You will be missed but never forgotten!
  6. Never mind I found that Tamiya has one. Thanks for those that took the time to read my request!
  7. Does anyone make WW2 jeeps, like the ones from the TV series Rat Patrol? I am not in to armor but would like to build a Rat Patrol Jeep. Any help would be nice.
  8. There are a lot of rules regarding safety that were not followed while afloat. Not because we didnt want to but because we had to.
  9. I painted A models for 6 months. The only time I wore a mask was when we had ro use the bead blaster. Wimps
  10. I am planning on going. Maybe we can get all the ARC militia thats there together for a group photo?
  11. CH That looks like its close to what I am looking at. Only difference is that the instructions show a double << with no lines. That is at least a starting point for me. I wish Tamiya would stop thinking that everyone uses the paints they use and put the RLM # or FS # instead of mix this with that to get the suggested color. It would be so much easier! Thanks for the input!
  12. Question I have only built one German WW2 aircraft my whole life and that was the Stuka when I was a kid. No paint just bare plastic and the decals. I picked up a kit at the Model Fiesta 38 show and am trying to figure out the paint for this one. My plan is to build it in Major Helmut Wick's colors. Problem is I do not use the paints Tamiya calls for that has to be mixed. ANyone have any suggestions on paint colors for this aircraft?
  13. Most of my pics will be of the flight deck as where that's where I seemed to be all the time. I'll try and figure out how to scan them or something to put them on here.
  14. Charlie D I served on board Midway from Jan 88 to June 90. We had S-3's coming in from the beach but none stationed on board. We really didn't have room for an S-3 det on board. Plus the size of the S-3 made it hard to keep on board, just as the F-14's being too tall for hanger bay. Even with the vertical tail folded on the S-3's they were a bit too tall. We loved it when the they came aboard, that meant mail and parts most of the time. I will be visiting my beloved ship in July for a reunion of with some of my buddies from VFA-151. It's been 29 years since I seen them and the ship. I can't wait till then.Hope this helps you out!
  15. Looking good 11Bee! I wish Tamiya would put a little more detail in the 1/48 Corsairs. They are outstanding kits but the wing fold area is a little weak in the detail area.
