  1. ARC Search Engine

    I just posted an article on my blog that offers a better way to search this forum and other web sites. Link Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  2. I think the images you see online tell the whole story. Some aircraft are well maintained, leading to landing gear bays that are relatively "clean," but other aircraft are not maintained with the same level of attention, so they'll appear more grimy. As we like to say, "Check your references." Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  3. Specific kits you sold and bought back later?

    Italeri 1/72 F-100F, after I realized how badly misshaped the Trumpeter kit is. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  4. NFL 2017

    Snopes has an analysis about the "Official Playing Rules of the National Football League," and its findings are mixed. The NFL may want to review and revise the rules to more clearly define prohibited behavior as it relates to political activity and expression.

  7. Ridiculous pricing on the bay

    Amen to this! Everybody write this down, internalize it, and bid accordingly. Steven Brown Scale Model Soup
  8. Possible new topics?

    Consider another 1/144 P-3C sheet sold! That's a total of...two! :)
  9. F-102 Paint Help

    If you find that Tamiya XF-19 is close but not quite blue enough, I'd suggest creating your own custom color by adding a drop or two of blue into the paint until it looks right to your eye. I often spend an hour or two at night doing nothing but mixing paint, spraying each color onto 2"x3" plastic card "chips" until I get the color I'm looking for. It's a little time consuming but very satisfying.

    There's contact information on the IPMS web site. You might give the chairperson a call to confirm.
  11. CD48127 - 1/48 H-19 Chickasaw

    Glad to see this is on your 1/72 radar. We can wait.
  12. Ridiculous pricing on the bay

    It’s not just high-priced kits but crappy kits and accessories, too. Link 1 Link 2 Steven Brown Scale Model Soup

  14. Does every model have a "make or break" moment?
