  1. Yes, Modelwarships.com is an excellent site for all things naval. Much better than this site. Thanks Brad.
  2. Getting back to original topic of this thread... I've built the old ESCI S-3. Unless they've added a full and decent cockpit, plus folding wings... the kit ain't worth $80.00. No how, now way.
  3. I like to follow women's curling. And not for the curling.
  4. Very nice Mike. I remember "Silent Running" very well. A great movie. Dewey looks very well done.
  5. Hey Glenn, I've purchased from you quite a few times in the past. You've always been great. Your response on this forum is just another example of what a classy guy you are. I'm positive that you will always stand by your customers and these outstanding issues will be resolved. Realspace Models fills a wide void in our hobby and I find your products to be top quality and very important to the enjoyment of my favorite pastime - real spacecraft modelling. Thanks and I look forward to being your customer again. I still looking for a resin interior to my 1/24 Gemini. Hint, hint...
  6. Ironic that I should find this thread. I've just begun an Italeri 1/35 PT109 project. Regarding your question about grey PT Boats, check-out this incredible build by Stuart Hurley. http://www.pt103.com/Italeri_PT109_Build_Stuart_Hurley.html This build replicates the PT109 at about time that she was on duty in the Panama Canal Zone, prior to loading on board the SS Joseph Stanton and shipping out to the South Pacific. I've read one account that states that the 109 was painted "Green" immediately after delivery to Tulagi. Unfortunately I cannot find any other reference to back that up.
  7. Absolutely wonderful work Leon. I want to commend you and say thank-you for helping to keep the art of spacecraft modelling alive and well. Dragon has injected some short-term interest in our hobby niche with their recent releases, but it's guys like you at LVM, Glen at RealSpace Models and Tom at New Ware (to name a few) that help to keep my interest in space models peaked. I make it a point to patronize all of you. In fact I just purchased your new Gemini interior kit today. Looking forward to finally finishing my Gemini 4.
  8. Excellent work Pete. Everyone's glasses are raised in respect to your craftmanship. When I built my CSM, I did it the "lazy man's way" and purchased the RealSpace Models kit. As for the LM, New Ware's detailing set leads my way. But you... you do it the old fashioned way and I love that approach the best.
  9. Well AVGBob, almost all of us have been in this rut. I've been out of the hobby for almost three years now. In 2009 I started a Corvette frame-off resto-mod in my garage. I have another year before she's finished; I'm into the "Big Ticket" items now (new drivetrain, body back on, paint and interior), but I've discovered that I'm having more free time on my hands so I've started pawing through the stash, looking for some motivation. I know I'm no different than anyone else; I have some half-completed projects packed in boxes. To ease myself back in I'm picking a build that is over half don
  10. Thanks for taking the time to post some photos and give us your opinions Cunundrum61. It certainly is appreciated. It's great that we're finally seeing new-tooled spacecraft models again. I have quite a few older kits stashed away and at this time I'm not biting on any new releases. My wife wants to see more output and less input - if you know what I mean. But I still like the fact that this avenue of the hobby is getting a little more attention. After a long, long break from the hobby, I'm now working on the Revell Saturn V kit in earnest. Trouble is I've been idle for so long that I l
  11. Thanks guys. It was a pleasure dealing with you guys. Enjoy your builds. Randy
  12. Bumpity-bump. Some items gone; some items back on the list. Randy
  13. Good Evening Mates, 1/72 Academy B-17F (Kit opened; bags closed). Stock decals. Includes RepliScale decal sheet 72-1029, plus some Hasegawa B-17G decals. I’m also tossing in dozens of 1/72 U.S.A.A.F. ground crew figures. An oddity that you’ll notice is I’m including a bag of ailerons, a rudder, flaps and elevators from a Hasegawa B-17 kit. I liked the texture of the Hasegawa parts over the Academy and I was planning to swap them out. Oh yeah, almost forgot… there’s also a 1/72 Jeep from Small Scale Productions. $25.00. 1/48 Tamiya #34 F4F-4 Wildcat (Kit opened; bags closed).
  14. Very well done Brian! Nice to see another excellent Eduard Hellcat. I have this one waiting in my stash. It's replaced my old Hasegawa kit. For all intents and purposes, it looks like a great kit to build. What did you think of it? Randy
