  1. Where can I find this item? I have never heard of it before today. A builder over at Hyperscale used it on his FW-190 A8 in one of the featured articles. It looks as though it does a far better job then any pounce wheel I have ever used. TIA
  2. Enamels. Although I want to switch I am too darn scared.
  3. I think this detective should be proud. At least some of the victims were repaid (the known ones) and that Morgan is in jail. His actions did result in something and at least something was done. We just can't count on bleeding heart judges to do the right thing. Just out of curiosity, does anyone know how old Richard Morgan is?
  4. We never fly without our cover in place. Usually on a parked jet the screen is pulled to one side as the pilots need to get in their to get their tapes out. They also like to through their junk in there and we close it so they don't get wacked in the head with anything.
  5. Grand Phoenix Seafire, and it is a gem!!!
  6. 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.
  7. What are you going to use for the EMI screen? It is the cover that goes over the Avionics hole. Looks great!
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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
  12. Whoops, wrong airplane! Looks the same though!
  13. 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.

    It worked! It was awesome! Thank you all !
  15. 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.

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

    Can I put a enamel barrier between it and the plastic? Cheers, Gary
  19. 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!
  20. 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!
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
