  1. Which brand of kit is the best 1/72 scale F-14 out there? Appreciate any feed back.
  2. Super clean works great, much better and faster than Purple Power. It's pretty strong and you will want to avoid contact with your skin.
  3. Can anyone tell me the difference between the Alclad airframe aluminum and the Alclad regular aluminum paints? I tried the airframe aluminum and it looks great but is too shiny for what I'm trying to do. Looks like polished alum. Thanks
  4. Thanks for the tips. I'll give both a try.
  5. Don't know if I've asked this before but here goes anyway. What is a good clear flat coat that'll make a really flat/dull finish? I've tried Dull coat, and several others but they end up looking semi gloss. I'm looking for something that is as flat as Tamiya flats, for example. Thanks for the help.
  6. Absolutely not!!!! The only thing that will keep your obsession in check is to immediately send most of your stash to me. I will perform the proper rituals to rid them of demon possession and store them safely for you.
  7. Has anyone done business with High Altitude Hobbies in Colorado? Just wondering about reliability etc.
  8. I used to buy Wingnuts kits until they priced themselves out of my wallet. Not only have the prices shot up a lot but, now shipping isn't included.
  9. 1/48 scale, I guess I should have said that.
  10. Hi, does anyone know if there's a aftermarket manufacturer who makes torpedoes for a Nakajima Kate. I guess any torpedo for a Japanese aircraft would work.
  11. Unfortunately, restored birds aren't necessarily accurate in all details. I did find some old WW II photos that showed a prop with no yellow, but I couldn't really tell what color the prop itself was.
  12. Ok, I'm building a Airfix 1/48 P-40B stationed at Hawaii in 1941, and during my research I've found conflicting information on the prop color. I've read that the props were black with yellow tips, black with no yellow, and bare aluminum with no yellow. Anyone have any definitive answer to which is correct? Thanks
  13. I use lacquer thinner for my MM paint.
  14. Does anyone know if the 1/32 Aires F-16C block 30/40/50/60 exhaust nozzle for the Tamiya kit will come close to fitting the Hasagawa kit? I bought the Hasagawa kit at a swap meet and it was missing the exhaust nozzle parts. Thanks Robert
