  1. For my Academy 1/35 MH-60L I plan on buying RB metal barrels for the M134 miniguns. The instructions also show machine guns mounted on the rear doors; should these be there and if so what type of machine gun are they?
  2. I tried using odorless mineral spirits to strip enamel and now the plastic is soft/partly melted. And no I didn't let it soak/sit. I just used q-tips to strip the paint and then washed it with dish soap.
  3. It's definitely Mr. Metal Color and not old stock. I have several of the shades along with Mr. Color paint.
  4. How do you get rid of the Simple Green smell after a long soak in it?
  5. I have both Mr. Metal Color and Metalizers and they are different. Mr. Metal Color is thicker, can be brushed on, and needs to be thinned for airbrushing. Mr. Color Super Metallic I've heard is similar to Alclad and Metalizers.
  6. Nitromethane is used as fuel in RCs and Top Fuel dragsters. I imagine the debonder based on nitromethane has a much lower concentration and has some additives. The main chemical in Goo Gone and similar products is petroleum distillates a.k.a. naptha and similar to mineral spirits. They mainly add citrus oil to cover up the smell and make you think it's environmentally friendly. I use mineral spirits to remove labels and stickers that a soak in hot water won't touch. Super Clean, Purple Power, etc. won't harm polystyrene and works well for stripping most model paint, though, there are ea
  7. Is it thin and run everywhere and smell a bit fishy? I think it may be a nitromethane based debonder. I've been looking for a nitromethane based debonder since Hobby Lobby stopped carrying one. It works much better than acetone to remove CA in my opinon.
  8. I want to buy any boxing of Eduard's 1/48 P-38. I doubt Eduard will ever replace the missing parts in my P-38 so I'm wanting to buy another one and hopefully find someone able to cast new ones for me.
  9. Apparently only the first request per customer is free. After that you have to pay. I don't mind paying for replacement parts, but $19 flat rate shipping for them is absolutely ridiculous. I won't be buying from Eduard until they change their replacement parts policy.
  10. Eduard wants me to pay $19 shipping for a replacement canopy so I will scrap my Hellcat if I cannot get one. From any of the Eduard 1/48 F6F Hellcat kits, I need canopy part H7. The kit comes with H7 and H8; H8 is for the F6F-3 and H7 is for the F6F-5. If you have a F6F-3 kit please let me buy the unused canopy H7 from you.

  12. The cockpits are simple and there are several ejector pin marks throughout them, but I only had to remove two from the P-51B and both were raised so no putty was needed. There are more ejector pin marks to deal with on the surface of the oil radiator outlet. The gunsights in both kits aren't very good so I'll be replacing them with Quickboost ones. Here's how all the parts (sans the gunsights) look before paint.
