  1. Hello, gents, I've been watching some Youtube vids on aircraft modelling, not that this wouldn't pertain to any other model genre that's plastic, but... I'm soliciting your methods of finishing your painting as it pertains to your initial priming, clear coatings, etc., etc. The whole process & paints that you prefer. I know this might vary widely, but the fundamentals I'm sure remain the same. As evidence these modelers in the vids I've not been using some the means they use. Like Gunze leveling thinner or the Mr. Surfacer primers or base coats. Laquer, enamel or acrylic clear
  2. Perhaps I just read past it like I'm know to do at time due to a rattled brain housing group, but where is the intel on this outstanding news (or past news?) on your FB page about this? Will it be a reprint of the Naval or USAF variants? Been a long time, motivator! Thanks, Jake. I hope you & yours are keeping well & safe! S/F, Masterguns
  3. Thanks, gents. I just looked at the Phase Hanger items, and if those items are as good as they look in the pics, then I'll be placing an order really soon & picking up the Hobbyboss kit. Do you think that PH covers most, if not all, areas to correct or add what's needed to make a good looking 1/48 C model? According to taste, of course. Is there anything else you can think of other than the PH stuff that could make the HB more detailed? Eduard PE? Current ordnance resin? I know very little about USAF specific aircraft equipment since some of their gear can vary a lot as when co
  4. Not sure where to post this where it'll get more traffic, so a duplicate post is in the Research Corner. Mods can delete the wrong one, please. Which of the above listed kits do you think is better? Or which one is a true A-10C OOB? If not, any aftermarket parts available to make one such? Do the intakes need attention for aftermarket engines or relatively easy scratch? Obviously these will be subjective opinions, however, does one offer any better detail or accuracy over the other? I've not seen either kit. Thank you for your help. Semper Fi, Masterguns

  7. It would depend on the timeframe for the individual airframe you're wanting to depict. The aircraft go through PAR at different times so it just depends. The entire airframe is stripped of paint & it gets a new coat during PAR. Squadron aircraft are regularly exchanged between various units. USMC & USN are frequently exchanged between squadrons-especially those squadrons that are going to the boat. I know the early models of the 60's almost always had the Corrogard metallic paint on the leading edge surfaces. Common practice of the day. HTH. Semper Fi, Masterguns
  8. I need the complete set for the exterior & interior bits designed for the Hasegawa TA-4J Skyhawk. Willing to pay via PayPal. I'm in the CONUS. Please PM me if you have the set to sell or know where I can secure one. I've searched online for hours with no joy prolly in part due to its age. TIA for any help you can provide. Semper Fi, Masterguns
  9. Still looking. I can't get in touch with anyone from Alley Cat after several emails. Thanks!
  10. As the title states, please. I just need one complete stencil data sheet. I'm in CONUS & can pay via PayPal in USD. Please contact me if you have one to sell. Thank you! Semper Fi, Masterguns
  11. I did this last week. Got a reply from a very nice mod but he said on Steve Bamford? had authority to ban apparently. The very first email I sent when this happened to me was the email at the top of the home page I assumed went to Steve, so I’m not sure. Let’s hope for the best. Semper Fi, Masterguns
  12. Exactly what is the site owner’s email? Apparently the email I used was incorrect since this bag nasty is still scamming good folks on this site & for some reason has yet to be banned. This p....y is still checking these posts & prolly getting a good laugh that’s he’s still allowed to troll. SMDH. Not cool. Semper Fi, Masterguns
  13. I only have one of of those SB conversions & the intakes with the early cockpit IP is a nice feature. But I think you can use that with the E/F because you do get the early intake conversions. I’ll have to look at it again because Darren produced that set shortly after the -B went “OOP” if I’m not mistaken. Either way I wager that it’ll still work with the E/F because those were still in production at that time. Are they still because I see them in web stores & eBay & only Lord knows how many are prolly still sitting on shelves in private collections & LHS. ANYWAY, I’ll get a -
