  1. Those are awesome. Thanks for the lead.
  2. I’m working on the 1/35 Red Iron Lunokhod. Currently on the wheels. 3 down and 5 to go. I’d like to mount it on a moon-scape base. I’ve got several of the AK Interactive terrains available with different textures to choose from. Have any of you done a base like this? I have a 1/48 Dragon Apollo base that I may RTV and resin as a starting point.
  3. I use a Weller with a fine tip. I will get some solder on the tip after tinning and place it over a fluxed joint. Stainless is more difficult to solder than brass, so it needs more heat.
  4. I finally broke down and bought the Red Iron Lunokhod kit the other day. Close-up reference material seems to be a little hard to come by. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks, Chris
  5. A while back I bought the Blackdog 1/48 A-10A kit that opens up all the panels for the Italeri -A kit. There are some nice -C decals available. Phase Hangar is doing a -C conversion for the Hobby Boss -A kit. If using the Phase Hangar conversion, can the Italeri kit be transferred to a A-10C? chris
  6. The Hasegawa weapons bay doors are a great addition as well as a nice ejection seat. I added some resin nozzles to mine, but they weren’t necessary. The etched doors are a huge improvement over the kit parts. I followed the Hasegawa instructions for the paint scheme and I think it’s the best solution out there for paint scheme.
  7. There’s a nice instrument panel set available for the Kittyhawk Su-34 and was wondering how the Hobby Boss panel dimensions compare to one another. Thanks. chris
  8. I don’t have too many in progress pictures. I soldered most of the parts together. Much better and cleaner than using super glue.
  9. https://imgur.com/gallery/DgHvjCg It builds into a nice kit. chris
  10. I bought a few of these sheets a while back and was wondering if the nose scallop decals blow up in water and/or refuse to lay down. Thanks, Chris
