  1. I've looked through quite a few pictures posted by various modelers who attended the show but I didn't see any?
  2. Am just curious to see how many of you who are over 40 believe you have more unbuilt models in your stash that you'll probably be able to build in your lifetime. This is just for FUN and ENTERTAINMENT purposes only - i.e. I'm not looking for super detailed responses, just answers to the poll question.
  3. Okay so here's the deal, I've been using Blu-Tak to help mask off my camo paint schemes for many years now and have had never had any problems. However today I got a call from a buddy of mine who at my suggestion tried to use the stuff and he told me that the Blu-Tak was "stuck" to his model and he wasn't able to get it off. Like me used the stuff over Tamiya Acrylic paints. I really didn't know what to tell him as I've never had a problem so I thought I'd check on here and see if someone else might have had the kind of problem he's described to me.
  4. I've dealt quite a bit with both Sprue Brothers & Lucky Model and have nothing but good things to say about both. About the only thing you have to watch out for, and this is just in reference to dealing with Lucky Model, is when they say something is "Available" it might not necessarily be so....or if it is then it might take awhile for them to stock the product. This is just my preference but whenever I place an order with Lucky Model I only order what is listed as "In Stock" Of course you don't have to worry about this when placing an order with Sprue Brothers because you can only put
  5. THANK YOU Phil......!!! I for one appreciate all your time & effort to make those pictures available to the rest of the us who were unable to attend this years convention!!
  6. They have a couple of things I'd like to try and am just wondering if they have a Stateside distributor. Thanks, Tim
  7. Sets have been SPOKEN for!! Okay so here's the deal, I've sold off the kits I intended to use these sets with so now I really don't have anymore use for them. I have taken the sheet of film out of both sets however you'll still be able to use both sets without any problem, you'll simply have to use the photo-etch backing and will not have the option of using the film backing. Please email me directly at GNomad781"at"gmail.com if interested.
  8. Wow, those are really great shots & interesting story!
  9. Hasegawa 1/48 F-4E Phantom II w/extras (starting bid $18.00) Hase. 1/48 F-4E Hasegawa 1/48 RF-4E JASDF 501 Squadron w/Eduard canopy mask set (starting bid $14.00) Hase. 1/48 RF-4E Hasegawa 1/48 Mitsubishi T-2 (starting bid $9.99) Hase. 1/48 T-2
  10. Nice work my friend. As far as having problems masking the canopy goes, have you tried any of the Eduard canopy mask sets (the newer kind with made out of materials similar to Tamiya masking tape? I tell you, I hate masking canopies and when I discovered these masking sets I thought I'd died & gone to heaven - I mean sure you have to pay a few extra $$ for them but they (in my opinion) save you a LOT of time. Okay well once again, nice work.

  13. I'm interested in building one of Airfix's relatively new 1/72 BAe Sea Harrier FA.2 (kit# 4502) but before I make the investment I'd just like to hear from anyone whose actually built the kit - basically I just want to know how well (easily) the kit went together. Thanks!
  14. This IS a Hollywood movie...correct??? Then I don't see what all the fuss is about....I mean seriously, isn't Hollywood the center of "Fantasy Land??" I know that each person has his/her own reason for going to the movies, however since I go primarily to enjoy great special effects and get away from reality I think this will be a wonderful movie for strictly "entertainment" purposes only! Thanks for posting the link Terence.
  15. I'm hoping to one day do a F-4S Phantom in VFMA-333 markings but as of now I'm not aware of any decals - either those available in kits or as after-market sets. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks, Tim
