  1. I have read in other sites that Academy's new decals are excellent, on par with Cartographs' best. Dusan Lekic (Scale ModelAircraft on YouTube) commented that in his Academy 1/48 A6M2b build review (Academy 1/48 A6M2b Build)
  2. Sorry that I didn't answered your question earlier. No, I have not, only the military colors.
  3. I would recommend the MRP line of scribers. This one: NPR Scriber Narrow is excellent, I use it as my primary scriber and have zero complaints. Expensive for sure but worth it.
  4. MCW Finishes makes enamels for popular FS colors. I have used them and they behave like old MM but IMHO with better results, since they use automotive-grade ingredients. I thin with Levelling Thinner and the resulting finish is smooth as butter. MCW Finishes They are expensive, thou.
  5. Hi Dave, does the sale include the yet to be released 1/48 F-35B sheet?
  6. Today I went to HW USA website and found it somewhat...odd. Anyone know something? Thanks.
  7. Mine acted the same way but I give here a Snicker bar....
  8. Strange, I updated the microchip firmware but still the yellow eyes. What'sUpped Bill Gates and he referred me to someone named 99...googled it but the only one related to is a guy named Toto.
  9. Got first shot on Sunday. One eye turned yellow and developed x-ray vision but otherwise no side effects.
  10. Nope, but Kitty Hawk is going to release a 1/19 B-29 with full interior and 29-man crew plus a bonus commemorative coin of Mar-A-Lago...
  11. Well, at least is not a another BF-109 😄 .....but seriously, another Phantom?
  12. Just got a set of 3 for $9.99 free shipping from Amazon (Prime of course, 😉).
  13. I learned a long time ago to NOT mix Mr colors and thinner inside the airbrush cup. The paint is more dense and will clog the AB. Try mixing in a separate cup. I use Aztec gravity feed cups with a toothpick inserted in the tip of the siphon tube. Mix the paint/thinner, remove the toothpick and pour on the AB.
  14. OMG, what a brilliant idea! Will get some from Amazon right now.
  15. Your dreams are my dreams. It is up to our Russian friends (Zvezda) to make these dreams come true ,as we can count no more on hasegawa or tamiya.
  16. Agreed, the Eduard one is inaccurate (plastic is gray instead of magenta, too much ejection pin markings in the canopy frames, et al).
  17. Don't know if this is old-ish news but certainly good ones! 😀 Reskit upcoming releases The one in 1/35 should give the the excuse to start my Trumpeter Hind that is in deep cold storage.
  18. Great news! BTW, do you have plans for a new F-35A sheet? Lots of new USAF units using this aircraft (AK, VT, and the 4th & 421th FS in the 388 FW).
  19. Have a look here, you can do it with Mr Metallics : Natural Metal Finishes
  20. When you have your airbrush loaded and ready to roll..there's power outage...
  21. I just mix it with little Future and some drops of plain water. Beware that the finish is somewhat glossy but its more resistance to scratches that just using thinner.
  22. Umm...the HG gray in recent photos do look less purplish and/or metallic, more like a AMC Gray. Anyone care to comment on it?
