  1. I’ve sold finished kits before and usually charge 3-4 times the cost of the parts. There’s no way you’ll ever get what your time is worth.
  2. Thanks Corey. I’m glad I drove it all the way from Virginia. I got it off of eBay from the maker. Combat Conversions. chris
  3. Looking forward to this one. I’ve got the Combat Conversions kit en route.
  4. Believe it or not; it’s what I do professionally.
  5. Air Force Armament Museum? The pickets from the railing and black trim below suggests that this may be it.
  6. Inside. Here's a list of survivors. Possibly one of them? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_surviving_Republic_F-105_Thunderchiefs
  7. Thank you. I drove that sucker 600 miles from Virginia and can't believe it made the round-trip without a scratch. Chris
  8. Those are awesome. Thanks for the lead.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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.
