    Rescaling decals

    Here's the way I remember it: Scale you have(divided by)scale you want gives you the enlargement/reduction amount
  2. Bump for the weekend Lowered prices on some of the larger kits a little to help offset shipping costs, plus dropped prices on real space, armor and auto
  3. Some trade wants at the bottom, I prefer selling these kits though All items from non-smoking home Please email me directly @ dinsdale.pirahna106@gmail.com, it's much easier to keep track of everyone this way than via PM's All kits are unstarted and in their original bags/boxes except as noted. All kits may exhibit some shelf wear and/or dinged corners unless noted. Shipping plus VAT/Customs is extra to the prices noted below, will go via USPS at the speed of your choice and charged at cost from zip code 24060 No UPS/FedEX shipping, too many problems with their costs. Note that entries labeled "BIG BOX" will be more to ship cross country or overseas because of the size. ****************** ADDED THE FOLLOWING KITS, all 1/48 unless noted Academy 1/32 F/A-18C $85 original issue very big box Hasegawa 09913 F-2A '6SQ 50th Anniversary' $22 09803 F-16D Block 52+, Hellenic AF $50 P8 F-15E Strike Eagle Prototype $20 (NOTE - this kit can only be built as an F-15D/DJ, it DOES NOT have the CFT's Kitty Hawk Sepecat Jaguar GR.1/Gr.3 $35 MiG-25 PD/PDS $80 inc.

    F-105F/G wheel wells

    Off the top of my head... Gear bays would have been interior green fresh from the factory, gear would have been silver lacquer and the inside of the gear doors would be silver lacquer. A possible exception to the latter is that the inner gear door may have the bottom half painted red as a warning. It has a sharp point and hangs down alongside the fuselage. I think they went all gray late in life and not during the war. Ken

    How do you store your spare parts?

    I used to do what farmerboy did but it was a 1/72 space shuttle with boosters box so it was a pain to search for anything, especially if it was on the bottom. I got a couple of those parts organizer cabinets from the hardware store, get one with several sizes of trays and make sure it has a couple of deep ones for larger parts. Pick a day/night that you don't feel like building anything and sit down in front of the TV and sort the spare parts you have now into different compartments. I have mine sorted into compartments such as: missiles, landing gear, ejection seats, PE frets, clear parts, etc. Pick a system that works for you. Every couple of years I end up going through part of it doing the "why do I have this again?" Q&A session with myself. Ken

    Was there a 2016 IPMS Convention decal sheet?

    I think there was a decent amount on ARC and HS, I don't belong to any other boards nor FB so I might have missed some there. Thankfully this year there was an absence of "Why did IPMS pick ______ for the nats? They should have picked _____ ?" posts, those get old. I think this one caught more of the die-hard attendees than ones did at Orlando or Anaheim. Not that it's a bad thing, just that those seemed to catch people that normally wouldn't go but could because it was in a resort or destination city and they made it a family vacation. Patience young padwan, they are starting to filter in as people get home. Deals seemed few and far between from what I've read, and the news level was about average. Though that seemed to be more of announcements prior to the nats in the vein of "come see our new items!" kind of news. Ken

    Dremel power tool..

    Depends, how large and how many? If you're cutting off the blocks from ejection seats or a small cockpit it will work fine. Doing a big stack of blocks at once? Probably won't get by on a single charge. To minimize cutting with the motor tool I usually remove as much as I can with a coping saw then use the motor tool to finesse the removal and fit. Less mess that way. Ken

    Dremel power tool..

    The Dremel mini-mite cordless is not really intended to be a replacement for the corded one, it's more for fine work of a short duration, I've used it to cut and deburr hypo tubing and it works fine but I wouldn't use it grind large amounts. Remember too on the voltage regulator that you have to use it with the single-speed tool, using it on a multi-speed tool will damage the motor.
  11. kenlilly106

    Dremel power tool..

    I use both depending on the application. I like their Mini-mite cordless one for general tasks that are typically of short duration, I also use it on low for stirring paint and polishing clear parts and for NMF prep. I use a corded one for things like grinding resin stubs, cutting metal, household tasks, etc. Mine is a Black&Decker one that's far cheaper than the Dremel corded one. I don't see any value in buying the Dremel branded corded one. I usually get a few years out of one no matter the brand, I have a problem with dropping them when using them while on a ladder, if it hits the ground when running then it's done for. That said I've been lucky with the B&D one I have, I've had to rewire the cord where it enters the body due to fraying but that's it. Ken

    Obscure question on MiG-21R

    My guess would be red like other NMF MiG-21s, in the link you provided they don't appear to have the white border but I can't say for certain. Ken

  14. Best shops are 45 min or so away, I can't afford to drive down there every time I need something. Plus they only carry the usual R-M/AMT/RoG kits. I have weird interests. I do try if I'm in the area (usually every 6 months or so) to run by and stock up on paints and whatnot. One of the shops carries Floquil paints and the full Tamiya rack of sprays and bottles. Ken
