  2. 1/48 CH-53E

    Does anyone know if the Academy 1/48 MH-53 can be converted to CH-53E? I have a friend and his wife who both recently retired USMC as 53 pilots... wanted to build them a desk model of helo they flew. I'm thinking one half of the helo in each of their aircraft markings😁 Im not familiar with either of these kits.. Any info would be appiciated.. can't believe the prices some are asking for the Academy 1/48 CH-53E😳 I get its discontinued but $800.00 plus.... I don't think so!! Respectfully, Bob
  3. What'd ya see today???

    Saw these guys here last Friday at Eagle County Regional Airport Colorado.
  4. I have the following books, sitting in a cabinet. If you are interested in any of them please make a reasonable offer.. most books are in great shape, a few of them have wear a tear from multiple readings, use. I may be up for trade or trades, interest is primarily 1/48 helicopters and accessories. I am also interested in 1/72 CH-47, Blackhawks, or CH-53E for upcoming project!! Thank for looking. I hope someone can use some of these books!! Thanks for looking!! Bob

  9. Recently completed KH 1/48 UH-1Y

    I'm sure there is a much better way, although I drilled laterally through thin walled brass tubing. Cut 2 pieces of tubing to width. Incerted styrene rod through drilled hole on one piece cut the other in half, through the previous drilled hole, providing a pin on either side for positioning. It was a pain in the you know what!! I believe It resulted in a very convincing antenna. Thanks for the comment and question!! Bob
  10. A few more photos of my completed VENOM!! Built with folded rotors to save space in the case!! GREAT KIT, I had a ton of fun building this one.. Bob
  11. Honestly I don't melieve I could cast them. Some of the styrene used up top is super thin, not sure I have the capability. PM me we can chat more! Thanks for your comments!
  12. They were Scratch built..they took some time to figure out and build!😁

  15. How to repair raised panel lines

    I've heard of people using glued on stretched sprue, thin wire, and even hair. I have in the past repaired small sections by taped both sides of where I wanted the raised panel line, filled the gap between the tape with putty, let dry, sanded the top even with the tape. removed the tape, shot primer over it to keep it stable. It produced a decent repair!
