  1. I´m currently working on a 1/72-scale "Miss Clawd IV" (Hugh Mills OH-6A). I read in Squadron Signals "Gunslinger" that Mills painted a ""set of gold-crossed sabres" on the front canopy of his first aircraft. Any ideas if he continued that tradition on his later rides, including "Miss Clawd IV"? HAJO
  2. Am I wrong or are there not many 1/72-kits in this category?? HAJO

    The future of group builds?

    I disagree a little with that point. I always saw a lot of enthusiasm when the GB started (and it was good to have some waiting time, so you can purchase kits and so on), but the Mojo usually died down after 2 months. I don´t see that this won´t happen if we´d start a GB right away. HAJO

    The future of group builds?

    I think it always depends on the GB topic and the individual motivation. I´m currently taking part in a german modelling forum GB with the topic "Vietnam". Since January I have built only Vietnam-related models, and have already completed 6 builds. I still have at least 3 models to go and I´m happy tate this GB lasts for one year! I have participated in several GBs here and always wondered how they took off with great steam (= a lot of people throwing in their ideas and models) and very soon the whole thing nearly stalls. Maybe my german genes take over here, but I only build models that I like and I´m motivated to do, and don´t stop that damn thing until it´s completed! Maybe we should think about some more ideas to keep the GB-community focused. Like stories about the GB-topic, walk-arounds, new projects from decal-manufacturers, etc... HAJO

    Question about raised panellines

    Just make sure to check one of the several reviews you usually get for nearly every model. First point to start would be scalemates.com HAJO

    CD72084- 1/72 P2V Neptune - Part 3

    Thank you, but since my OP-2E is already done (and I don´t plan on adding a second one) I wouldn´t have use for the decals! But your offer is much appreciated! HAJO

    CD72084- 1/72 P2V Neptune - Part 3

    Dutch, thank you so much, but my AP-2H didn´t got the Airmodel-set... 😉 I used it on my OP-2E: HAJO

    CD72084- 1/72 P2V Neptune - Part 3

    Why not mention the Airmodel-set? I used their vac-canopy and was quite satisfied. HAJO

    Revell-Germany, 1/32, Kit # 80-4948, H-145M, LUH, KSK

    No indications of any problems with Revell Germany. Alive and well, I´d say. HAJO
  11. How do you avoid the props hitting each other?!?!? HAJO
  12. This is the end, beautiful friend This is the end, my only friend, the end Of our elaborate plans, the end Of everything that stands, the end No safety or surprise, the end I'll never look into your eyes, again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSUIQgEVDM4 Yep, I did it! I bought this Mach2-kit, kept it (and not tossed it in the bin), and even built it! I have to say, it was a really pleasant project after all, and I enjoyed it quite a lot. Only real downside are that some more detailled parts like M60s or the relings are lacking a lot... I also found out during my build that this kit is a complete rip-off in 1/72 of the 1/35 PBR by Tamiya. Someone copied all the parts and made them smaller, tossed in some figures of the Esci figure-set "US GIs in Vietnam" and called it a day... I made a quite extensive WIP, but in german only: http://modellboard.net/index.php?topic=60611.0 But I think the pictures in my WIP say mor ethan thousand (german) words. A PBR with a Team of Special Forces closes in on the beach, to drop the men for a Recon-mission in the jungle: No signs of enemy activity so far, but the crew is ready and keeps the weapons ready in all directions: Looks like a "cold" landing-zone, though! The team-leader maintains radio contact to the CAS-forces, just in case...: Looks too quiet to be good. What´s waiting in the jungle? The team is ready to start its mission in the jungle: They still hesitate to leave the massive fire-power of the PBR behind. HAJO

    1/48 Airfix Hawk 100

    Lovely paint job! HAJO
  14. 1/72 F-5 by Italeri has raised panel-lines, while Hobbyboss does not. I think the overall looks of the Italeri is a bit better. HAJO
