  1. Thanks for the advice, I'll try that.
  2. I'm currently building a 1/48 Tamiya F-16 and first primed the ejection seat with Mr Surfacer black, then painted with Mr Color paint then after detail painting with Tamiya paints I put on a clear coat of Tamiya X-22 thinned with Mr color leveling thinner. I put on a few decals then another coat of clear. After I left it for a few days, I put on some Tamiya panel line wash. I left this on overnight and then went to remove it with Mr color thinner with a cotton bud. I wiped most of the thinner off on a paper towel. When I started wiping away the panel liner, it started taking off everything down to the plastic in one area. What did I do wrong? Am I using the wrong thinner to remove it or did I leave then panel line wash on too long?
  3. Great job! How did you paint the exhausts, they look fantastic?
  4. Do you have any plans of decals featuring the Marilyn artwork? That would be awesome!
  5. Thanks for the replies. What color do you paint the fins? Im thinking maybe gunmetal or titanium alclad?
  6. I'm just wondering what some of the techniques and paints that you guys use for painting the fins on the missiles. Do you paint the fins first or the missile first? What color and paints do you use?
  7. Which squadron is this, the 18th?
  8. Hurt by Johnny Cash, and Sound of Silence by Disturbed.
  9. Hi Gary, Just wondering if you have any plans for aftermarket items for the E/F/G models in 1/32 scale? Thanks, Rick
  10. Does anyone know the difference between the Type 1 and 2 exhaust they have for 1/48 Super Hornet?
  11. I agree, the North Star set is nice, but it is very hard to get, it's always sold out. I think based on your previous missiles that yours would be nicer!
  12. Chris, Now that you've done AMRAAM missiles to go with your AIM-9 missiles, how about doing some AGM-65 Mavericks. Rick
  13. Has this kit's release been delayed in North America? My local hobby shop was expecting it in March, and it's still not out, and I haven't seen it at Sprue brothers either. I know it's available on ebay and some online shops in Asia, but not over here yet AFAIK.
  14. Thanks a lot for the response. I will keep trying with your method. Cheers, Rick
