    Aztec Warranty

    Testors had made quite a few mistakes since moving South to the States. First the paints increased 4X overnight and now this. I think it would have been far cheaper for them to continue operating in Canada. Our cost of living is lower and our dollar goes far further in Canada. I love the two Aztecs I have. I would not be happy if I had to replace one of them and if it only came with a three year warranty. As far as I am concerned the the lifetime warranty should stay with me for as long as I own an Aztec. I guess they weren't counting on so many of us keeping our airbrushes.

    Warlords update

    What are you going to use for the EMI screen? It is the cover that goes over the Avionics hole. Looks great!

    Aztec Warranty Process

    I sent in as Aztec 470 and I got a brand new Aztec 470 in return. I was very happy. I have two Aztec brushes at home. I had to contact the through the website before I sent it in. No bills or receipts required.
  5. I really don't think it matters how he pays you. I have a personal account as well and I can accept both credit card and cash payments.

    Another Resin casting/molding question

    I hope no one goes after Hasegawa for copying the jet, missiles, fuel tanks, and the rest of the components found on a F-16. It is kosher in Canada and the US.

    VFA-27 Royal Maces Decals?

    Upon further review, Hasegawa did do a boxing of that aircraft. It was probably Cartograph decals as well. http://www.hlj.com/scripts/hljpage.cgi?HSGPT110

    VFA-27 Royal Maces Decals?

    Apparently they are according to this auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewI...item=3190894137 They are made by Cartograph. I thought Hasegawa did a boxing of it too. Perhaps it is the Hasegawa kit with Cartograph decals.

    Can I put a enamel barrier between it and the plastic? Cheers, Gary

    Using Play-Doh...

    Thanks guys. I think I am buying the same stuff. I was just curious if Ble Tac was anywhere in Canada. The stuff I buy is either blue or a white.

    Alclad?

    So if I have a cured paint underneath I still need the primer, such as a black? I am using ALCLAD on the leading edges of a Skyraider. I already have the Gull Grey and Insignia White sprayed. I have the areas masked off. Therefore, are you telling me that I should spray MM black and wait 48-72 hours? Or should the previous layers of paint protect the plastic? I have never used ALCLAD before. I have had great sucess with SNJ and Model Master Metalizers. Thanks!

    Where do you find Blue Tac? I have found something similar to it in Zellers.

    Ebay won 1/48 Desert Harrier I saved the best for last : From Squadron the last seven issues of Wing Masters!!! I was in heaven!
  16. Subhuman, In case you aren't getting the warm fuzzy feeling here in your first post I would just add to that feeling. Are you an idiot? You talk of censorship yet you don't have the balls to post your own name! Your crybaby story about Victory Models is assinine and isn't even a valid post. Paul Cotcher has been serving the model community for many years with many happy customers. It sounds as though your shipment may have been delayed for one reason or another. You were only billed four days ago so what are you crying about? It is also Christmas so shipping takes time. Grow up!

    Hasegawa F-18 Intakes

    I see now that you put the step # in your post. When I wrote the reply I couldn't read your post. I have told so many people to do it that way I remember the steps and the part numbers. Pretty sad ? I always though it was a cruddy fit. I built my first Hasegawa Hornet 10 years ago. I've lost track of how many I've built. I have about 10 unbuilt (A's one B and D's). I got a D free once and I paid as low as $25.00 Cdn for the Hase F-18A twice. The free one was for brokering a deal to a well known Hyperscaler that bought a box of 1/48 D's from my local shop. The owner shipped them prior to payment and was subsequently ripped off. No payment was ever made and the guy got 23 F-18D's for free.

    Hasegawa F-18 Intakes

    Hi Tilt, That is how I build all my Hasegawa Hornets. I have told many people to deviate from the instructions. I find the fit is far superior this way. I only built my first one as per the instructions. I build the bottom half first. I put on the fuselage side panels and align the intake up at that time. I do all my sanding at this step too. I think this is step four. At any rate, you explained exactly what I do. The other area I deviate from is the flaps. I install the hinges first. That way I get the proper angle and no gaps.
