    Revell 1/32 F/A-18E Super Hornet

    Have to say, I started a build on LSP on the Super Bug, Had to walk away ( maybe for good ) as you are constantly fighting the kit. Not in a simple scrape here and there, more like half the parts are from Revell, the other half from Fisher-Price, with Fisher -Price parts fitting better. Now, I know, we're model builders, we make art from little bits of plastic, but for a mainstream kit maker that's shown so much promise lately, this is a BIG let down with the amount of work needed. Did build the Trumpeter Bug, wasn't easy either but did finish. If you really want one of these, buy it NOW before the molds get old and the "fit" gets worse. Don Does have a nice decal sheet, the VX-9 bird looks appealing.

    Best uses for peg board in the hobby room?

    I've been doing this for a while. Keeps the bench clear, things better organized. P-38 Trumpeter up on the board. Don

    Group builds lacking participants?

    Ships, armor, cars, figures? I know it says AIRCRAFT resource center, but might be a way to attract builders to future GBs if they were all included (as much as possible) Purists may disagree... Don

    Group builds lacking participants?

    Yup!!! Really did attract a lot of builds. One small suggestion, and maybe I missed it, a post in the car/armour/sci fi, ship forums alerting them to a Revell everything GB might have included more builds. Would your next GB have room for these? Don

    Group builds lacking participants?

    I see that, too. See some of the the non aircraft forums have seen 1 year anniversary dates on some threads. I remember when Zone Five started... not a lot happening there, either....good luck... Don
  6. I used to do a lot of group builds here, but I build 1/32 so I've spent most all my time at Large Scale Planes. Going through the history of past GBs can see a steady decline, especially 2018. Lots of reasons (life, work, etc) why, but it seems like they're almost done? Nobody build anymore? Nobody care? Don

    Trumpeter P-38 Lightning 1/32 Virginia Marie

    It really stands out in the display case. Unique shape, twin engines/tails, blue color... Don

    Trumpeter P-38 Lightning 1/32 Virginia Marie

    I did the staining with Tamiya black panel line accent and a can of compressed air.

    Trumpeter P-38 Lightning 1/32 Virginia Marie

    The Trumpeter kit had a LOT of rivets, most were filled, though some around the gun bay doors and engines seemed to stand out on any pic i've seen of a P-38. Decals were Bombshell, worked exceptionally well. i use MiG Ammo FS15102 Dark Grey Blue A.MiG-229 for the blue, NMF was Tamiya AS-12 spraybomb and Vallejo Metal Color. Nose gear strut is SAC gear, longer than the kit part, gives a nose up stance. Props are from the Revell P-38 kit. I was going to weather it heavily, in the end i've kept it relatively clean. Few more pics. Don

    Czech Model F-80C in 1/32.

    This is the cantankerous CM kit of the F-80C Shooting Star. Kit decals. Don

    1/32 Italeri F-104J in JASDF markings

    Yes, these are the old Hasegawa decals. I used the Hasegawa decals for the himomaru and stencils where japanese was used, otherwise i used the Italeri stencils as they were better quality, readable, thin, didn't silver. Don't see many JASDF Starfighter builds in FS16473... can't remember seeing any at all. Jennings is thinking of doing some JASDF decals for the Zip in 1/32, would really be welcome.... Don

    JASDF aggressor in 1/32 from the Revell kit

    Sorry, forgot about this one. Build wasn't too bad, in all honesty it was a far better fitting kit than the Tamiya kit, after sanding down the major parts the panel lines were also very acceptable. Details not as good but don't bypass kit just because it's the Revell offering. Did take a lot of time and tape to mask, was part of the fun and challenge. Canopy was the kit part, it is the smoked version, didn't know there was a clear version.. Thanks for the positive feedback!! Don
