    What are your top 5 dream model kits?

    You're right that you'll need to dig around, although they pop up from time to time on more mainstream places: there's the D4Y3 version on Amazon right now for $35.89 with free shipping, and a variety of them are for sale now on Ebay. Good luck! Mike

    Fine Molds has done the Judy variants (I think the whole line). Mike

    Favorite Air Museums?

    I've been to quite a few, but there are a couple that I really need to get to yet (Pima and National Naval Aviation Museum). Here's the ones I've visited: SAC Museum: love the Snark and Atlas missiles out front, the B-52B, and all of the stuff stored out back (including a British Vulcan bomber). Pacific Aviation Museum (at Pearl Harbor): love the B-17E they have. Would be nice to see it restored. National Museum of the USAF: without question, the most complete museum for the USAF. Truly amazing and am looking forward to a return visit now that the 4th building is open USS Midway (San Diego): Since I've yet to get to the National Naval Aviation Museum, seeing some 1950s/60s naval aircraft was pretty cool. Things like a Photo Cougar, Skywarrior, Tracker, Vigilante USS Intrepid (New York City): Seeing an F3H Demon, FJ Fury, and E3 Tracer was neat and there's the Space Shuttle Enterprise (which I had seen at Udvar Hazy before they moved it) Smithsonian Air & Space (on the Mall): I go to DC a lot for work, and I always carve out time to drop by. I basically know this place like the back of my hand and I love every moment I'm there Smithsonian Udvar Hazy: What a great museum: tons of rare or one-of-a-kind items. Only been there twice so I need to get back...I just wish it was easier to get to (I'm never in DC with a car). Minnesota Air National Guard Museum: I like 1950s jets, so any opportunity to see a Starfire or Scorpion is fun! Cheers! Mike

    Where are you going modelwise in 2019?

    I have a couple that are turning into shelf queens: the box scale Revell Stiletto and the box scale Revell USS Midway. I'm resolving to finish them. I'm also learning how to use Mission Models paint. So far, I'm not impressed, but it's (probably) mostly my doing...I did not prime and am finding the paint to be the most fragile I've ever used.

    Sweet Stash Shots!

    There are a couple of shots of my stash on that site! I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing... Mike

    I enjoyed the article. Having the color diagrams alongside the text really was helpful. Good work! Mike

    Hasegawa F9F-2 Panther

    And here's the other Panther! Although there were some fit problems on the undersides of both, the Hasegawa F9F-2 is a nice little kit! Mike

    Thanks Martin. I've never done a Spanish Civil War scheme before so it should be interesting. Mike
