    What are your top 5 dream model kits?

    To supplement my first post: Canadair Tutor - 72nd and 48th Avro CF-100 Canuck - 72nd and 48th Avro CF-105 Arrow - 72nd and 48th

    Kinetic CF188 1/48 Production Line x4

    Awesome work. Patience and persistence. Looks really nice. Mike

    Nice work, my friend. I'm visualizing the ski hills in your back yard. No fun!
  4. Gothca, Chuck. The main thing is a sturdy set of legs to stand on. Hopefully things aren't too spindly in the end. Mike
  5. Hi Chuck. In looking at this picture, it appears that the top of the gear leg doesn't touch the top of the wheel well. What about adding a small shim to either the gear leg or the wheel well so that you have a tight mating surface that will give a dab of glue some extra purchase to add more stability and strengh to the join? Just a thought. BTW, beautiful shot and scenery. It would be even better if you took this from your back porch. Mike

    Spitfire II x 2 in 48th scale

    Thanks jester. They raised $100 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I'm pretty happy with that.
  7. I've said it before and I'll say it again; I really admire your attention to detail Chuck. You've earned every accolade you've received. Keep it up. I'll be following. Mike p.s. - will the little roadster be coming out soon? It'll be another month at least before the Mustang hits the streets.
  8. One is the Revell Spitfire II (white plastic) and the other is the Revell of Germany Spitfire II (grey plastic). Can't remember which is which but they're the identical kit. Same front windscreen short shot. Same difficult fit. Photos flatter the end result a little bit. Built them for a friend to auction off at a gala for the local Children's Make-A-Wish foundation. Model Master Enamels (RAF Dark Green / RAF Dark Earth over RAF Sky). RoG kit had decals for the sky band on the rear fuselage. I painted and masked both. It was easier. Kit decals settled down very nicely with Solvaset. Stands are aftermarket from Airfix.
  9. Unfortunately not this year.

    Great progress ALF. As usual, I enjoy the first hand, personal experience commentary. You help bring your builds to life. Keep it up chum. Mike
  11. I admire your attention to detail, Chuck. Beautiful work as usual. Have a great vacation. Relax and unwind. Mike

    Coming along nicely ALF. Intake openings always seem to be a bear. Something else I'll keep an eye on when I get around to building this kit. The Sens have been a disappointment. They haven't been the same since that two game trip to Sweden last year. Yeah they beat Anaheim and Winnipeg and from what I hear could have beaten Toronto too but I'm afraid this is another lost season. If they don't sign Duchene and Stone, I'm afraid the Sens and Melnyk will lose more fans. Nice movie theatre screen by the way. 😄
  14. Outstanding update Chuck. What a great solution for the seamless intakes. Your problem analysis and solving skills and ingenuity are top shelf. Wonderful work. Mike
