  1. Have you given any thought to brush painting them? It is my understanding that they were hand painted in theater, so I am sure brush marks were evident, and this would allow you to kill two birds, so to speak. And get the advantage of no overspray to deal with too.
  2. Richard, I am just curious. Did you buy those color chips or is it something I can print myself from a reputable website? And if so, what website would you recommend?
  3. Same here Billabob. When I checked it on another computer, it is not there. I was hoping I could just use google but it looks like we are being forced to use something else.
  4. Came to test the same thing so just thought I'd try in this thread.
  5. Fantastic work! I love watching your builds as you put a lot of effort into showing us how and why you add the details that you do.
  6. Unbelievable Fozzy! And I agree with Pete. Maybe out to the first engine on each side?!?!😷
  7. Unfortunately no. Life....Actually, I have way too many hobbies/interests (woodworking, diving/fishing, photography, etc. etc etc.) and modeling has taken a back seat for a little while. I will eventually get back to it and finish this up, as well as a Phantom project I have going at the same time.
  8. Oliver, you are so ridiculously talented, it is unbelievable! Thank you for sharing your talents with us on this forum.
  9. Nice start Tim. I will be following this one for sure!
  10. Thanks Chuck! I am following your build and gleaning all the tips that I can. Keep up the great work and keep those tutorials coming! I am learning a lot!
  11. Chuck, will you advise what accelerator you use. I have some of the aerosol kind (Stickfast) I used when making wooden pens on the lathe, but this stuff goes everywhere. I assume it can be decanted? It does not seem to affect the plastic on the test mules I have experimented on.
  12. Nope, only a modeller. But I did stay at Holiday Inn Express last night! 😁..Dad was a helicopter pilot in Vietnam, so that's where I got it from. With that being said, my faith is also very important to me, so a double meaning so to speak.
  13. Oliver, in the pictures you posted, I agree the yellow seems a little bright, even on the pictures where you have the fuselage surrounding it. But what does it look like when those bright lights above it are not illuminating the brightness so much. There is still a lot of light coming through the top of the fuselage since you don't have the engine compartment up there. I think it may give it some pop in a darkened interior. I would at least investigate that before changing it.
  14. I have been told it might be possible to substitute a Hase 1/48 one piece canopy or windscreen, so if anyone has one available and is willing to part with it for a fair price, I would be happy to take it off your hands.
  15. Thanks Janissary! I was not aware that the Hase canopy would work. I am actually building it closed, so either one would work.
  16. Contacted MRC to try to obtain a windscreen/clear sprue with no luck. By their email, it sounded like they put out a lot of feelers for them, but to no avail. I'm not sure where else to try, so if anyone else has any ideas, please share.
  17. If anyone has the clear sprue available for this kit, I would be most appreciative. The windscreen landed on the floor and one of my puppies found it before I did. I can make it with just the windscreen, but would be willing to buy the whole sprue for a reasonable price.
  18. Oliver, this is absolutely ridiculous! If you really wanted to mess with us, you would take these pictures outside or using a different background. The only way I can tell this is not real is the painter's tape it is resting on. Absolutely stunning!

  20. Thanks John! I think that might be my problem too. I am used to doing light multiple passes and I feel like I have got spray going everywhere. I just need to get better at it!
