  1. They have. https://www.ebay.com/itm/303098679017 https://www.ebay.com/itm/303098767068
  2. Thanks guys! I have some big sets coming out in the next month. 1/48 O-2 Skymaster update, PB4Y-2 Privateer conversion for the Monogram. Erco nose turret, and Bolton Paul quad gun rear turret for the Monogram B-24.
  3. I hate when the delivery person uses our packages as seat cushions.
  4. Sure, message me. Just cover the shipping and I'll send you the new parts.
  5. To clarify. Because of high sales volume from two weeks ago, I had to remold the wings parts to fill orders. I sold over 40 units in in a week.. The set has been relisted on Ebay and the price adjusted to $35.00. More for sales control then anything.
  6. Thank you for your comment. I appreciate well thought out constructive critiques. Because of it, I have redone the Bronco set. I have eliminated the large 3 piece main wing, and underside weapons. Always difficult parts to mold, and cast. Very rough on the molds.I learned that less is more. I eliminated the main wings and now supply three piece inserts to the kit wings. Cuts are made on natural panel lines. They extend the distance between the fuselage and the nacelles, and shorten the length of the wing panels outside the nacelles These three pieces save much of the plastic kit wing. With these changesn and pruning of unneccessary parts, I also lowered then price. Sales have always been good , but have increased with the new changes. Maybe check it out.The powers that be will not allow me to post Ebay links. I get it, It's a control thing. I'll play along....Message me your address and I'll send you a new set.
  7. I've seen talk in other places about this issue of inaccurately molded horizontal stablizers with elevators lacking the characteristic mass balance. Hell, I built 3 of the kits without noticing the issue. But now that I know it's there, I can't build a forth without correcting it. Hope you all will have a meander and gander at my set. http://www.ebay.com/itm/302201748191?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  8. Hi all, I see this is an old thread. Hope it still gets some traction. I have listed on Ebay a resin set I make for the Monogram P-61. It addresses areas that I as a modeler always cringed at. Take a look and see if you might benefit from this set? http://www.ebay.com/itm/302199754363?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  9. For anybody interested in my resin engine/cowl assemblies. http://www.ebay.com/itm/-/302197093337? http://www.ebay.com/itm/302193611499?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
  10. Nothing jacked up now. It's all good.
  11. Nose is correctly installed. The floor of the cockpit was racked in between the fuselage halves. Had to cut off the nose and pull the port side fuselage away and shave the floor to get some slack to close the sides together tighter.
  12. I always loved this kit. Next to the B-26 Maurader, it's a winner in my book every time. Here's my second attempt in this lifetime of this kit. I hope to have it done in the next day or so. Since this shot was taken, I have sliced the nose off to correct an issue that just bugged me. I removed that noticable step between the nose and the fuselage side. Ugggg.....hate when that happens.
  13. But I hate that opened, exposed port side engine! You know the one I'm talkin' 'bout! That big elephant in the room? Regardless how you display it, it looks bad. What's the point spending hours building a beautiful night fighter, only to have that unsightly engine ruining all your work. Last week I started building my second Monogram P-61, when I remembered that detail concerning the engine. I remembered going out and buying a second kit to use as a donor and cobbed the starboard engine out of it to complete my model. It looked much better. But it was twice as expensive! So once my memory kicked in and I got over the horror of my previous foray into the Monogram P-61, I decided to do something differently. Over the years, I've been involved in scratch building a few Civil War Iron Clads. The experience required me to learn resin casting for many of the repetitive parts I needed. Pulling from that experience, and having the materials at hand to accomplish it, I made a mold of the starboard engine assembly to cast the one I would need for my project. I couldn't believe how well it turned out. I am offering these two piece resin assemblies to other modelers sitting on a dream to build that Monogram P-61 Black Widow that has been collecting dust for ages, to finally have a chance to achieve a goal of completing it in a way to make themselves proud. Without having to apologize for the goofiness that was the kit's toylike feature. These are available on Ebay for $6.00 plus actual shipping determined by your location.

  14. I welcome this kit and all that come from Trumpeter. hats off to them for having the aggressive schedule of releases. I can't believe that folks are getting their shorts in a bunch over the inclusion of "British" in the box art. But none the less, not surprised.
  15. Nice job on the profile. It's a tempting scheme to do. But I'm not so sure about the yellow numbers. When looking at the pictures, the numbers have the same hue as the rudder. Which does not have the same hue as the wing panels. I'd go with white for the numbers and rudder. Yellow wing panels.
