  1. And a few things about spiders and snakes too! Progress is looking good chum. Mike
  2. In the zone? According to the date you posted, you're in another dimension! 🙃 Spectacular work and finish, Chuck. And to the person(s) that gave you grief over the black finish...😒. Try to please everyone and not everyone will like it. Keep up the terrific work sir. Mike
  3. Sorry CM. I have nothing to help build an RF-86 or an actual RF-86 kit. Mike
  4. I guess watching The Rock in Skyscraper gave you the idea for the nose weight? Nice work and subject matter pal. Mike

    Looking good, ALF. Maybe you'll still have it so I can see it up close and personal in a couple of weeks. Mike
  6. More fine work as usual Chuck. Congratulations on the golf for your Spitfire. Bummer that your Eagle 'only' won silver but you are correct in your observations. Who knows what goes through the minds of judges at a contest. I have seen some really head scratching decisions in that regard as well. Looking forward to your next update. Mike
  7. Well it certainly wasn't this Mike doing any bad-mouthing of Mr. Don G. I've met and dealt with Don on many occasions and I have nothing but respect for the man. Great guy and top notch trader. Sorry that you have to deal with the infantile rantings of a self-entitled brat. Just consider the source, Don. Mike

    Nice work, my friend. I'm visualizing the ski hills in your back yard. No fun!
  11. Gothca, Chuck. The main thing is a sturdy set of legs to stand on. Hopefully things aren't too spindly in the end. Mike
  12. 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
  13. Thanks jester. They raised $100 for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. I'm pretty happy with that.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
