  1. thanks for the replies guys. I was only thinking about the e-reader not the fire. and I was unaware of the app.
  2. every time I buy a book like a detail and scale book on amazon, they always try to get me to buy a Kindle version of it. to me this seems really useless for a reference book that has lots of pictures. as far as I know the kindle is only in black and white and the resolution is not the best for images. so has anyone actually downloaded one and have you been able to view the images? or is there another way to view them. for something like a detail and scale book I prefer a paper copy anyway because other than setting it on fire it will always work.
  3. they behave very much like tamiya. I thin them with Mister color leveling thinner or tamiya lacquer thinner. I have sprayed them over tamiya and vise versa with no issues.
  4. one piece of advice is that you do NOT use tamiya extra thin cement. It is too hot for them and they break at the joint. most newer tamiya tracks are made of a rubber that can be glued which also means that most tamiya paints will stick. I have a mix of nato brown 95% red 4% and nato black to taste. thinned with Mr color leveling thinner. I usually lay them flat to paint and weather. you will of course have to flip the tracks over a few times. leave either the drive sprocket or idler off to aid with attaching the tracks, they will stretch a bit as well.
  5. YEP USPS is a mess. I ordered an item from Arizona in May and it showed up in Vancouver in Sept. on the flip side I have been ordering from Hannants at least twice a month for the last 6 and I am usually getting a 3 week turnaround from England
  6. very well printed and the newer stuff is very well researched.
  7. overspray with either future or Tamiya X-22 the wash will not attack them. I usually thin the tamiya 50/50 with tamiya lacquer thinner. again try it out on a test piece first
  8. after starting the Trumpeter 1/32 hellcat I will second the call for a GOOD new tool kit. also the 1/48 F-102 really needs an update. there have been several really good decal releases over the last few years, and the old revellogram kit is really showing it's age.
  9. while I might not always reply to your posts, I always enjoy seeing what you are up to. please continue to amaze us with your progress.
  10. I always wanted to do an anti sub 60
  11. it looks really good Mario. you have more patience for P.E. than me
  12. well... I had an order cancelled on me earlier this year without any notice. then when I went to re order I got an email stating that there would be delays. (which I completely get) buuuut. after that order was "processing" for 2 weeks, I decided to just cancel it myself. was it something I said? the usps is completely a mess right now, but it has to get out the door first. please do not take this as a rant or a smear on SB, I have been getting stuff from Sprue Brothers since the beginning. in over 100 orders I have had exactly 1 bad experience that was due to UPS being.
  13. are you guys shipping to Canada again? or are we still having scrounge stuff from Europe?
