  1. Kitty Hawk 1/35th scale MH-6J

    There appears to be a phallic symbol lol
  2. Kitty Hawk 1/35th scale MH-6J

    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 😂😂
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. UH-1H Build/Coming back to the hobby!

    Those seats are looking good man. You're a braver man than me scratch building!

    That looks great! That UH-1 looks awesome too, got any more pictures of it?
  7. 1/35 UH-1C

    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
  10. 1/35 UH-1C

    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.
  11. 1/35 UH-1C

    First step is to open up the holes in the floor for ammo chutes and troop seats, simple drill and clean up with trusty #11 Next step was to lay down my first ever piece of PE. Naturally as soon as I cut it I dropped it, thankfully I'm building in the garage which has a cement floor and it was easily found. From that one piece alone I was happy with the purchase and the wait for it to get here, comparing the two ammo chute openings it's a no-brainer. Next step was to cut the kit pieces to make room for the PE, after I cut those I started sanding down the IP and then Household 6 called me inside for dinner. Hopefully I'll get some more done tonight!

    It's finally here! Now I can get cracking
  13. The Next US Assault Rifle

    The question was answered way better than I can, but I'm amazed at the frequency of the issue. I've had it happen (at least according to the pilot on the other end of my radio) on F-16, F-15, and most often, Hellfires off of AH-64s. I'm pretty sure there was a bad batch in 2009/2010 cause it seemed like every time we called one in they'd wave off saying it misfired.
  14. Creating Ocean water in a diorama

    That's such an AWESOME display. Please tell me there's a thread for this build somewhere
  15. Eurofighter Typhoon over Alabama???

    Must be nice, over here in Georgia we're getting a flyover from a B-2, but the only aircraft on the ground are a P-3 and a P-8. There was supposed to be an F-35, but it's not listed anymore so apparently that got scrapped. We'll see though, maybe I get lucky tomorrow
