  1. Ok, I'm a plane guy and a complete noobie when it comes to ships. I'm building a 1/700 CA-71 Quincy for my my Grandfather who served on it in the early 1950s. I couple of questions... 1. What would be the colors used? I see lots of info on wwii camo, but I can't seem to find what I need for the post war years. Would the horizontal and vertical surfaces of the ship be 2 different colors? 2. Would the teak deck be "teak" wood color - our would that have also been painted? Sorry if these are ridiculous questions - but help a guy out if you could. thanks!
  2. I managed to misplace the astrodome (clear bubble window on top of the front fuselage) for my revell/monogram 1/48 B-24 build. The B-17 astrodome may work as well? If you have a spare one available, please let me know! I can pay or possible parts for trade.Thanks for looking! Matt
  3. Love the weathering and the unique modex number!! Great job!
  4. I've been watching it, but frankly I've been pretty turned off my NBC creating political "stories" - I just want to watch athletes compete.

  12. I finished mine. Never again. besides the inaccuracies, the directions are piss poor and leaves you scratching your head and questioning many things. I can't tell you how many hours I spent looking at photos and then checking the "alignment"of each stage, as the paint guide is practically non existent. They also don't really show you where the different lines actually attach to the different stages, so again check, re check, and then check your references again. I totally drilled out holes for lines on both sides ( because they mold locator holes are on both sides) only to find out it didn't
  13. I would agree, I switched back to enamels and bought a good respirator about a year ago. Masking was always a pain with acrylics as well as clogging my airbrush (I only used MM Acryl FWIW). I have heard that applying a good coat of Tamiya Primer before acrylics can help with peeling.
  14. You can see the video here: http://www.myfoxdetroit.com/story/23907027/tribute-to-our-troops-celebrates-10-years Well done Sir!!! I must say, when the reporter was holding that P-47 and swinging it around with her wild hand motions, I was freaking out a little :) Slow down there!
  15. Is this what you are looking for? www.ebay.com/itm/1-32-F-18E-F-Super-Hornet-Advanced-Weapons-from-Trumpeter-kit-/161142601949?pt=Model_Kit_US&hash=item2584d8f8dd
  16. A friend and I drove down and both entered a model. We were both impressed with the attendance of the show. It was busy! I managed to snag a few 1/32 Revell props in the cheap for nostalgia's sake. Also picked up a 1/48 B-17F that I plan to convert to a D using the Koster set. The quality of the models entered were amazing, and put my B-17 I entered to shame! Very well done everyone! After a 5 hour drive both ways, I'm pretty tired this morning
  17. Looks like a buddy and myself will be heading down for the show. I'm thinking about taking a B-17 and possibly a TBF, but I'm nervous about transporting them. How are the vendors for this show? Pretty good? Any local shops that are worth checking out while we are in town?
  18. The beauty of scalemates is that anyone can contribute. I have fun there. To add to the database, login, and then on the right hand "action" menu is a button that says "add a product." Hope this helps!
  19. So excited to see some 1/32 trainer love!
  20. Jammydog makes great narrow stripped tape. It's great for cylindrical uses like you mentioned. http://www.jammydog.com/
