  1. Sweet! Love the subtle weathering! trying NMF scares the crap out of me!
  2. Wow, Brian - those look amazing! It was a fun build. I'd do another one again. Unfortunately the decal options for this kit are limited. Maybe a D Day scheme would be cool? haha, lots of 1/32 jets in the stash - but I haven't touched one in over two years! I don't have a ton of experience with AMT kits - but this one was enjoyable. Decent detail, recessed panel lines, and good fit overall. The only problem areas for me were the fitting of the engine nacelles, and the strength/design of the main landing gear.
  3. Just completed (still need to weather the props). 1/48 AMT A-20G Havoc. Aeromaster Decals, Model Master Enamel paints, Quickboost barrels, EZ-line, Eduard Masks & True Details Wheels & Life Raft. Belts made of masking tape and canopy shade/curtain made from a McDonald's napkin
  4. John,Thanks for the info - that seems to make sense. So this lighter color dome could possibly be a replacement. That makes sense - This photo from the same squadron seems to have a black domes:http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/13/675BombSqCombatCrews.PNG So I guess the question is should I paint it black or take a crazy guess at what it is in the green hornet photo? Maybe white? Yellow? Maybe there is now way of really knowing?
  5. Hey guys, I'm in the process of building a 1/48 A-20 Havoc (great kit!!). I'm building it up as the "Green Hornet." My decal instructions as well as side profiles call for a black prop hub as well as a black spinner. Here is an Example. Everyone who uses these decals in a build seem to paint the black. However, I found photo evidence that the spinner was not black. Check out this Photo of green hornet Black hub? Sure, but no way on the spinner. What color would you guess? I'm leaning towards the blue that is also on the tail and nose. What do you think?
  6. I had the same thing happen to me the other day by clicking on an ARC forum link through google search. To be clear, it's not an advertisement on the the ARC site itself - it actually hijacks you and sends you to adult friend finder.
  7. Good review over at LSP:http://largescaleplanes.com/reviews/review.php?rid=1479
  8. He also served in WWII as a B-17 gunner.
  9. I'll be praying for Norah! I have a 3 year old daughter and a 6 month old daughter. I thought I knew what love was - and then I became a dad! Children bring such joy and meaning to life - and help put everything else into perspective. Praying for answers, discernment, and a a full recovery. Matt

  13. Had a great time today. As much as I loved the Airzoo, the lighting and space at Western was awesome. Great job by all the volunteers! I managed to go home with only spending $10 at the vendors and somehow this plaque followed me home (my first time placing at a contest, sweet!)
  14. I'll be there around 11ish - thinking about entering a few models as well.
  15. They are willing to produce kits that no one else has touched. They make mistakes - I can fix them or live with them.

  17. A bruised shoulder and ego is about it! Pretty lucky as I was riding alone. Surprisingly the bike is OK too...
  18. So I have other hobbies. Mountain Biking is one of them. I'm an avid single track cross country - meaning I stick to the woods. Mostly rolling trails with a few obstacles and trees mixed in. I don't to much as far as jumps, beams, etc. Anyways - I decided to try a new trail last Sunday. Its was really less trail - more obstacles. "What the heck, lets try it" I thought. I also just purchased a GoPro... You can see where I'm heading with this. Enjoy my pain and suffering. Lesson learned: scope out obstacles BEFORE attempting.
  19. I have a 2 year old and another on the way. I can attest that nap times and at night after they go to bed are the only solid chunks of time I have to work/play with hobbies. That being said, I still have time to quick spray a layer of paint every now and again. I'm a slow builder - so I can deal with it. I've actually built more in the past two years simply because I find value in the free time I now have.
  20. Hey Gang - I'm looking for specific decals that came with the 1/32 Revell Germany boxing of their P-38J/L. I'm looking specifically for "Arkansas Traveler" If you have kit and are not planning on this scheme, or finished the build but still have the kit decals, I'd love to talk with you. I can pay $$ or have other decals to trade. thanks for looking, Matt
  21. I'm calling this beast done! final pics posted in the display case here. Thanks for your helps and tips!
  22. Just about finishing up my latest build. 1/48 Monogram PBY. Aftermarket used: True Details wheels, Terry Dean nose weight, eduard canopy masks & Yellow hammer decals. The decals were pretty old and did not settle well - probably the biggest fault I have with this build. Oh well, still not bad. Model master enamel paints used - with base black faded on the upper surfaces. Before the black - I painted the kit the original blue/grey camo and then used a magic eraser cleaning pad to scub away the black to reveal the glue grey underneath. Some brown chalk used on the upper wing for some color variation. Antenna wire was made using EZ-wire (wonderful stuff!). I also scraped away the molded in rope on the left front fuselage. Not sure if I should add it using the real thing, or just leave it as is. You can take a look at my build thead if you'd like here. thanks for looking!
  23. Down the the last few details. I still need to do a quick flat coat in a few areas and add the antennas on the sides of the front fuselage. I can smell victory!
