  1. Chuck, Be careful with Tamiya Semi Gloss, depending on the decal maker etc, I have seen Tamiya Lacquers melt decals after application. If you choose that path, very light coats 🙂 Y
  2. Chuck, Even though I agree your F-15 deserved a gold! I’d like to think nonetheless, my F-15 Ra’am was a worthy opponent. My Fw-190 placed silver next to your Spitfire, so I guess that makes us even. Watching your mastery in your posts has pushed me to be a better model builder, you encourage me and I’m sure all of us! See you next year!😉 Yuri
  3. Chuck, Lucky for you! Last time I was at Model Land they had the new Tamiya Laquers bottles in stock :). Cheers,
  4. Sounds like a typical SCM issues. In my opinion upcoming model companies such as Kinetic, Kitty Hawk, and Wingman would benefit from having their Supply Chain Properly managed. Issues described above could be easily resolved by implementing better quality control procedures during the development phases, and doing a better reaserch on deciding who they will outsource to. While many will say think of the additional cost associated with having a well managed Supply Chain, consider the savings availabe if one was to negotiate better purchasing agreements and value added services with their vendors. just my 2 cents... Yuri
  5. JUST AN FYI..... Best way to reduce the seam between wings and fuselage from previous experience is. 1) Do what you did, mask the edges around the seam and lay the putty down, sand it. 2) Upon sanding it, mask it again, spray tamiya primer a few thick layers, and sand it over the primer, and polish. From my experience on the F 15's that joint usually takes lots of putty, and as we know putty shrinks a little and absorbs some paint. There is no panel line in that area on the real F 15. The primer provides an additional layer of filling, which covers up the shrinking of the putty, and allows the paint not to be absorbed by the putty? I hope that made sence, just my 2 cents......

  6. add the top wings to the fuselage first, to avoid a major seam, and after carefully slide the bottom pieces of the wing....
  7. One of the best I have seen. I have to congratulate you, every new build you take it to a much better standard. Definitely Modelling with STYLE! Cheers, Yuri
