    PV-1 Prop Question

    So to fix the prop issue, I decided to go in-flight and use the prop-blur items. I posted this question in the research forum, but didn't get any traction so I'll see it gets more here 😊 I am going to make it an in-flight pose where it looked like it just bombed a u-boat (Probably not 100% accurate but I don't care). My question is would they have dropped the entire bomb load in one pass or would they come back around for a second? Also how quickly would they have closed the bomb bay doors? Thanks Brent

    PV-1 Question

    I am currently building the Revell PV-1 Ventura. I am going to make it an in-flight pose where it looked like it just bombed a u-boat (Probably not 100% accurate but I don't care). My question is would they have dropped the entire bomb load in one pass or would they come back around for a second? Also how quickly would they have closed the bomb bay doors? Thanks Brent

    Favorite Air Museums?

    Some others I like other than the ones listed so far National Museum of World War II Aviation in Colorado Springs, nice aircraft and you can tour their restoration facilities. Also, the museum we have here at Pax River is pretty neat too, small, but some nice aircraft.

    1/48 Hasegawa EA-18G Growler

    Nice job, that exact project is on my list of things to build too.
  8. Go Cubs!  We've been Cubs fans for a long time.  I remember watching them on my grandparents big console black and white TV in their living room in Harwood Heights, IL (western Chicago metro) back in the 60s and 70s.

      Hi Tom-

      Nice to meet a fellow Cubs fan out there.  I grew up in the Aurora, Montgomery Oswego area.  Let's hope this year ends better than the last!

      Nice to meet another one, too!  I grew up in Iowa, but have relatives in Chicago, so visit a lot.  Watched the Cubs on my grandparents big console black and white TV in the 60s, 70s, and early 80s.  Had WGN on our cable systems. Was very sad when they went to WGNAmerica out in the hinterlands.  Oh, well, we'll see the Cubs TV channel in a year or two...

       

      And yes, hoping this year's better! We'll see the Cubs when they play the Rockies out here (live north of Denver-we're Rockies fans 156 games a year, but Cubs fans all 162 games a year :) ).  My brother-in-law and wife are cubs fans, too, as is our son.  He's off to spring training soon.  We'll maybe go next year.  If not, any and all we can starting in 2021, after I retire...

    PV-1 Prop Question

    Just started the Revell PV-1 and I know the prop are wrong in the kit. My question is, I thought I read somewhere you could exchange them out for RM B-17 or C-47 props. I think I have both in the spares bin. I really don't want to spend money on resin if I don't have too. Thanks Brent
  11. Awesome, love that base

    Possible new topics?

    Probably very niche but how about decals for the Special Hobby F2G? Maybe test and racing?

    Carrier Moto-tug driver colors....

    i just picked a light blue color. I don't know if there is a right answer. They probably faded and got stained pretty bad. Probably no two the same. Probably the same with the chocks. I did mine yellow and just stained them really bad.

    F-18 Landing Gear Retraction Sequence

    Thanks Bill- Just remember as you can see from my build, depending on where in the sequence you make the gear, the gear doors hide a good chunk of it.
