  1. Hello all, I have an original issue Monogram 1/72 Space Shuttle kit that I am trying to restore. It was found in a terrible state of neglect at a garage sale. It was slightly started but nothing that I can't fix with elbow grease...except for perhaps the kit decals...they may be an issue. Anyways, the only part(s) missing are the main canopy glass (parts 91 and 92). I have looked for aftermarket canopy glass but cannot find any anywhere. I was wondering if someone out there had the canopy glass from a previous Monogram kit that they have done? Perhaps you used afterma
  2. Oh boy, where to begin without being a spoiler. Lets just say the whole series of books has a little bit of everything in it. In no particular order and going from memory, politics, terrorism, oil, corrupt billionaires, drug lords/cartels, stolen weapons from Russia/former eastern block nations, black ops, Russian leaders longing for the good old days... think Hunt for Red October meets Clear and Present Danger add a smattering of The Sum of All Fears, sprinkle in Red Storm Rising, and a dose of the movie "Act of Valor". I think that about covers the series without giving anything away LOL! T
  3. I liked the Ghost Recon series of books by David Michaels (books in order from 1-3): If you liked The Hunt for Red October, then check out the "Hunter Killer" series by George Wallace and Don Keith (Final Bearing is book 1: Loved the books! I believe there was a movie loosely based on the series. I have a few others but I won't hog LOL! Happy modeling!
  4. Unbelievable voice and images: These places will be filled again !
  5. Just a quick "Happy Easter!" to everyone. Hope all my fellow ARC'ers are safe, healthy, and as happy as can be expected.
  6. Those envelopes, catalogs, flyers etc can help keep the fires burning once you're done.
  7. Wow isn't that true. Amazingly close huh. Too funny ! Happy modeling!
  8. Hajo you completely fooled me! I thought sure you were modeling 1/35. Those are outstanding builds in 1/72. Well done! Happy modeling!
  9. Dutch that's cool! Very colorful and highly unique. Not something we see everyday. I've seen that kit on EBay but never pulled the trigger. Thanks for sharing and happy modeling!
  10. Nice HEMTT's Hajo! Italeri or Trumpeter? I built the Italeri HEMTT ages ago and aside from the tires thought it was a good kit. I have another Italeri and a Trumpeter in the stash for a rainy day. Thanks for sharing and happy modeling! EDIT: Spelling.
  11. 1/16! Now that's just way too awesome. I love my 1/35 but I must admit 1/16 interests me. Panzer I looks great. I love the German scout/light tanks like the Panzer I, II, and later the III. I have an ICM 1/35 Luchs that's been calling to me. The Type 94 Tankette's look great too! I have always liked the yellow, green, red brown Japanese camouflage. Is that a Chinese copy I see on the left in the photo? Good stuff thanks for sharing! Happy modeling! EDIT: I now have the urge to play World of Tanks...one of my other hobbies...
  12. Thanks for looking after the fort for us Phantom . No worries.. even on my current build tear you'll still end up with more done in 2020 then I will LOL! If you find the time...Happy Modeling! Cheers!
  13. You bet! Too much negativity isn't healthy. Step away and immerse yourself in something you love and brings you enjoyment...like modeling! Hey happy modeling to you Sir! Cheers!
  14. Hey a fellow Model Railroader! N Scale myself but I have been collecting some HO materials over the last long while (my eyes are not what they used to be so I am anticipating the inevitable switch). My layout is loosely based on the Conrail Appalachian routes...coal country. I run mainly 1980's-2000 diesels like SD40-2's, Geeps, SD70's, but I do have an AMTRACK and "Tourist Train" Super Chief (I LOVE the Warbonet paint scheme). Haven't run any trans in a while though as I've been busy and having fun model building. Good stuff! Thanks for sharing! Happy modeling all!
  15. Sweet! Dukes of Hazard was my go-to TV show back in the day. Loved the General Lee. Daisy was easy on the eyes too . Nice build, really looks the part. Thanks for sharing! Happy modeling all!
