  1. What kind of stuff do you use this for? Can you sand it as a filler?
  2. Wow, thanks for all the great info. This will be quite the excersise in weathering with all you have told me. I had assumed the lettering was white, so thanks for that also.
  3. Hi, all. I'm sure many of you are familiar with the incredible story of the B-24 'Lady Be Good', but I just recently learned of it by watching a Twilight Zone episode inspired by her story. It inspired me to build the I'll-fated bomber, but I'm having trouble figuring out the overall color scheme. Most of the pictures online are b&w, and the ones in color are are ambiguous. Sounds crazy but my guess is either OD or aluminum. But maybe desert scheme? Anyway, any help is appreciated.
  4. Thank goodness. Thank you. What's a Shamu scheme?
  5. Hi, all. I have a few questions about the KC-135. Were all of the A's natural metal? If so, what would need to be done to convert an A to an E or R? I just picked up the Minicraft A kit, and I'm really not wanting to do a NMF as this was intended to be a quick build to get over an AMS hump. The box art sure looks gray to me but the instructions call for aluminum. Thanks, and happy modeling.
  6. I can't seem to find anything online but I'm wondering if there's a usable resin cockpit for the Revell Tornados yet. I think it was CMK that had one but had some major fit issues? The cockpit detail really isn't all that bad in the kit except for the HUDs for the front and back. Those look pretty cheesy compared to trt. Seems like someone would step up with this kit having been out for a while now as well as its critical acclaim. Thanks.
  7. Just checked out some SAC items on SB. Very sharp looking.
  8. Thanks Whitey. Pretty much what I figured. I'm going to check out G Factor. dnl42-Thanks for the tips on the X-47. I'm going to do the wings folded. I wasn't at first, but after dry fitting...nah. Are you talking about having trouble with the LG doors in the open or closed position? Tonight I'm working on the bomb bay doors which I want closed but I'm running into the same thing you're saying about the other doors. They're just a touch too big. I'm worried about overdoing it on the trimming though.
  9. Hi, all I'm wondering how many of you use white metal landing gear and why. I understand that they're good for supporting extra weight, but are there any other advantages? Are they any more detailed than the kit Gears?I'm building a Freedom Models 1/48 X-47, and the gears are very prominent on trt, so it got me wondering if I should invest in some. What say you? Thanks
  10. Wow. Lots of great info here. Thanks, everyone.
  11. I'm wanting to build a Gulf War Tornado, and hoping someone can sum up the basic differences between the IDS and Gr. 4 for me? I'm wanting to build the latter, but I already have the Revell IDS in my stash. I'm wondering if the differences I could modify myself or if I need just to buy the GR.4. Thanks in advance
  12. Oh yeah...Sold on the Kinetic kit. Didn't even know it existed but looks great. The last Harrier I built was the 1/24 Airfix in kit back in the early 80's. Thanks for the responses
  13. I'm wanting to build a 1/48 Harrier and would like some suggestions on which kit to go with. I have the Hasegawa AV-8B in my stash. Thanks, and happy modeling
  14. Indeed. I got over $200 on eBay for my Goffy Models pit. Starting bid was $6.
  15. Please forgive my ignorance on this matter as #1, I am almost exclusively an aircraft modeler, and #2, i was too lazy to do my own research online. The new Trumpeter missile launcher and tractor I've seen online has really piqued my interest, and has me inspired to possibly venture outside of my typical aircraft building. Before I drop $200 though I want to make sure I'm aware of a few things. From the limited searching online I have done, I see that there already appears to be a Dragon launcher on the market. Is this kit any better or worse? In what way? I also saw a resin set of which the manufacturers' name escapes me...although I don't think it was CE, Verlinden, or any o of the other resin heavy hitters. Is this set any good? Again, I apologize for my ignorance in this matter, and I hope I'm not beating that dead horse. Cheers
