    Trumpeter 1:32 F-117A

    Amazing work
  4. I don’t know exactly how Navy works, but in the Army we deactivate and activate units all the time. Very rarely do we create a completely new unit, so if they do actually “create” new squadrons, they’ll most likely just re-activate old ones, but not necessarily ones that used to be in the fleet

    I’ve obviously been in the Army too long. The FIRST thing I noticed (even before the aircraft) was your little Easter egg in the dirt on the left side of the first picture 😂😂

    It's 2017 and the Army still can't decide on uniforms

    Not a chance they’ll let us customize them. Pinks and greens look good but I’m sick of buying new dress uniforms.

    1/35 UH-1C

    Got a little bit of work in tonight, next big step is the seats, trying to figure out how I'm going to do them, kit parts, the full PE set or a mashup. Finished the center console, not perfect, but a significant improvement over the kit parts. Next I added the rear bulkhead and some of the engine bay parts. Not too much progress this week, but work has been crazy, hopefully I'll make better progress next week

    That looks great! That UH-1 looks awesome too, got any more pictures of it?

    I used the gel glue, which gave me a little bit more time to manipulate the PE before it stuck, but then applied pressure for a solid 30 seconds or so after I got it lined up. I only had one piece not stick and it was because I used hardly any glue, easy fix, add more glue and stick it back on. Hopefully the rest of the build goes as smooth (I doubt it but here's hoping)

    Fortunately I followed that advice and got one already, folding is the easy part, picking up really tiny pieces of metal (and not dropping or breaking them) is where it gets tricky

    Thanks! PE is a whole different monster than plastic, and the prices are SO SMALL! That being said, the difference in detail is so drastic I can't imagine ever not using it again. Also, the Gorilla Gel I posted a picture of earlier works great, if you ever end up using PE

    Shutting it down for the day, the right side of the center console was 15 separate pieces and it took forever to assemble but it looks infinitely better than a blank side, which is what it replaced. This project is gonna take take a while I feel.
