  1. I wonder if anyone has used 2-Liter soda bottle caps on MM jars? This was mentioned in this post, by indydog (Mark). Model Master enamel paint caps.. Has anyone tried this with any success? Scott CNJC-IPMS
  2. Thanks for the info. I wish I had it sooner... The reason I used Oderless Mineral Spirits is because, a few years ago, everyone here told me that OMS and Testors enamel thinner were the same thing. I guess it is a hard lesson to learn. I am just going to go back to using Testors enamel paint thinner... I stopped using it a few years ago thinking OMS was better (Price was also a factor). Not so in this case. Scott CNJC-IPMS
  3. I recently painted some Testors 1/4 oz.flat brown enamel, but the paint is not curing after more than 48 hours. I'm not sure if I got a bad bottle or not. The one thing I am doing differently is I thin the paint with Klean Strip odorless mineral spirits. I'm beginning to think that may be the problem. Perhaps I should go back to using good old Testors enamel thinner... Scott CJC-IPMS
  4. Never-mind... I found a Add On that takes care of the "blurry" PB photos for me. Photobucket Unlocker for Pale Moon Scott CNJC-IPMS
  5. If your down in the south NJ area, there is a F-14A at the Air Victory Museum.. AVM F-14A Tomcat display Scott CNJC-IPMS
  6. I have had this topic bookmarked for a few years... Now these exhaust "Call em' Done" covers look better... However, now all the pics are blurry (The photobucket problem..). I want to print the article, but not with blurry photo's. The other problem is the author has not been here since December 20, 2015 and is probably gone by now. I'm trying to find this article with the original, clear pics. If I could only contact the author, he could probably help. Any suggestions on how to get this article with non-blurry photo's? Scott CNJC-IPMS
  7. I need to know how many filler caps are on each of the Tomcats external tanks. Is it one or two per tank? I assume the tanks are interchangeable between left/right intakes(?) Are there any pics showing the location of ALL the filler caps locations on the tanks? Also, there is a short red "strip" on the side of the tanks pylon (MXU-776/A, MXU-777/A). What is this short, red "line"? (Any close-up pics of the pylon would be helpful please) Thanks. Scott CNJC-IPMS
  8. Any more news on this build? Hows it coming along? Scott CNJC-IPMS
  9. Any news/progress on this? Maybe some profiles soon? Scott CNJC-IPMS
  10. Here are the pics on SB listing.. Scott CNJC-IPMS
  11. Whats the opinion on the wheels? Should they be replaced with the new Eduard set? The kits tires have a strange "raised line detail" on the tire, close to the hub area. Maybe it can be sanded off to look better? Scott CNJC-IPMS
  12. Here are a few pics of my latest build. The (Old,1984) 1/100 Revell F-104G. The model is OOB. The decals came from different Superscale generic U.S. insignia sheets. Hope you like it! Scott CNJC-IPMS
  13. Ooohhh..! OK Now I see... So, 48082 is sized for the Hasegawa kit! I plan on using the AMK one, so I have to get 48087 instead. I noticed now, a few differences between 082 and 087. The metallic exhaust decals are different sizes, the seats are different sizes, Etc. What about the weapons decals? Are they sized specifically for the Hasegawa/AMK kits or will they fit "any" 1/48 weapons? Scott CNJC-IPMS
  14. Has anyone used the Tomcat Data sheet (48082) from Fightertown? How are the details on the sheet? I've only read the review on MM, but it did not cover a lot. Scott CNJC-IPMS
  15. Has anyone seen the latest news on the AMK Facebook page? _______________________________________________________________________ ******Announcement****** Hi, All, I am sadly to announce that, Mr. Martin Wilson, former AMK Global Sales and Marketing Director, resigned from AMK. He is too busy with his own business, and has no extra time for the heavy work for AMK. We wish him all the best for his business! I, Sio, until further announcement, will still be here to serve you all. If you have anything needed, please feel free to leave a message to us! To all our distributors worldwide, I will contact you all personally, and hope we can still maintain our relationship as we did! Thank you for your support as always! Cheers!
