  1. As seen on the "General Modelling Discussion" forum.... (http://www.zone-five.net/showthread.php?t=32573) ANNOUNCEMENT... "Alright guys, it's come to it. When we opened this site in 2009, I don't think anyone had any idea how things would go, or that we would even last this long, but I think I've made the decision to let the forum die. Bulletin boards are being replaced by things like reddit, Instagram, and so on. Facebook remains active somewhat, but the bulletin board is getting quite vacant. I'm not really interested in handing the site off to anyone else (it's a hassle, be
  2. I am wondering if the stencil sheet will have the following... Red/white prop tip markings. The numbers for the individual sonobuoy tubes. Yellow decals for the leading edge of the wings(?) Wing-walk decals? (These are pretty big) Just having a separate stencil sheet is worth the cost. The old superscale decals are very hard to find now, and VERY expensive. Scott CNJC-IPMS
  3. I also noticed that all of the listings in your 1/48 basics instructions page are not working either. All you get is a "blank, white" page when downloaded. http://www.caracalmodels.com/basics/ Scott CNJC-IPMS
  4. Thanks guys that did the trick! Scott CNJC-IPMS
  5. I am looking for color pics of the (combat/weapons system operators) rear cockpit area, specifically the sidewalls and the overhead escape/ejection hatch. I tried Google but could not find any good pics of these areas. Would anyone have pics of the combat/wso area that show details of the ejection/escape hatch and the sidewalls around the windows. I have plenty of the pilots cockpit, but nothing for the rear cockpit area. Thanks. Scott CNJC-IPMS
  6. Do you have a link that gives more info on the price increase for the 1/4oz bottles? I have checked on Ebay and the prices are from roughly $4-$6. Testors 1/4oz enamel paint on Ebay Scott CNJC-IPMS
  7. I am wondering if white glue will adhere to bare plastic that has not been cleaned (mold release still present on the plastic parts). When I try to use WG to attach my lead shot ballast, the glue adheres to the shot but does not hold onto the bare plastic. The lead shot then just comes off in one large piece, as if the WG adheres to the lead, but not the plastic part. Scott CNJC-IPMS
  8. I am doing the finishing touches on my 1/72 ESCI Panzer 2 AusF kit. I have now come to the hard part... What do I do with the vinyl tracks? PLEASE do not tell me to not use them or replace them. I plan on using them as is. I have never worked with vinyl tracks/parts before. The tracks are very warped on the sprue/tree. How do I straighten them out flat? Will they re-warp later on? I also will be priming them so that my Ammo/Mig paint will adhere. Vinyl is hard for acrylics to stick to. Thanks for your help. This is my FIRST tank
  9. I am on the fence right now about getting the new 1/48 Kinetic F-104A/C kit. I was reading this build on Cybermodeler. (1/48 Kinetic F-104G build) I know the build is the "G" model, but I am wondering about his comment at the end of the article... "Someone on Facebook asked how the model is going together and the only analogy I can offer is to imagine if Tamiya had just released a Starfighter in 1/48 - that would be this kit." Is this statement true on the fit of the parts? Are they THAT good and tight? I know the decals are not correct, but I plan on using aftermarket a
  10. Thanks for the link and the suggestion. Scott CNJC-IPMS
  11. I am wondering where the oxygen tanks were located in the B-29A The Academy instructions say to put them on the inside under the center wing box.. However, I have Googled this and can't find any picture that shows the tanks in this location. Was it possible they were moved to another location? Did they interfere with the equipment for the radar in this area? Is there any pictures of this area that show the tanks in this location? Thanks for your help. Scott CNJC-IPMS
  12. Did the "M" have the landing gear further outboard? Aren't the inner gear doors further "outboard" than on the "D"? Scott CNJC-IPMS
  13. I need the decals from the 1/72 Academy B-29A kit #12528. My kit does not have the decals in the box. If anyone has this kit and can help me out, please send me a PM on this board. Thank you. Scott CNJC-IPMS P.S. I know there are other aftermarket sheets out there, but I specifically need the ones from this kit.
  14. A few years ago I built the KB-50 version of the 1/72 Academy/Minicraft kit... One of the problems I had was getting the cockpit canopy to fit. It looked like it was too small for the opening. Perhaps it was short shot? Anyway, I was wondering any of the other boxing's have this same problem with the fit of the cockpit canopy? I am planning on doing another kit soon... I did use the Squadron vac canopy, but I would like to use the kits if it fits. Do any of the other Academy B-29 kits have the poor canopy fit? Or was this just a Academy/Minicraft kit problem?
  15. I need the one set of bombs from the 1/48 Monogram F-100 kit. Parts #45 and 46. If anyone has this kit and can help me out, please send me a PM on this forum. Thanks. Scott CNJC-IPMS
