  1. Followed your WIP thread for this. The time and effort definitely justifies the end product.
  2. Also posted to the Critique Corner. 1/48 Kinetic MQ-9B with Caracal stickers.
  3. A bit of an update on the old Whale finally. The majority of the time was spent filling and sanding to eliminate all of the fit issues the kit has to offer. I went ahead and attached the main wing sections to the fuselage. These lined up fairly well, and minimal sanding was required. I will be building it with the wings folded, so I will worry about the outer sections later. The kit was primed, checked, sanded, repeat multiple times as things popped up. So here's where it stands as of now. The tail is flush, the light from the photo exacerbates the
  4. This is the 1/48 Kinetic kit along with markings from Caracal for the 432nd WG based at Creech AFB. Kit goes together quite nicely. It does require quite a bit of weight in the front end to keep from being a tail sitter. The engine bay is void of detail, so I made a set of covers from putty. The gear bay is also empty, so I boxed that structure in. Loadout is GBU-12s from the kit and a set of GBU-38s from Shawn Hull. The Hellfires in the kit don’t include enough decals to mark them properly. Paint is MRP on the top and bottom, Model Master enamel for the turret, MMP for the
  5. Shouldn’t be an issue putting Aquagloss over future, they’re both acrylic. Aquagloss is superior to Future in about every regard. Unless of course you’re looking for a mediocre floor wax, in which case Future wins hands down.
  6. Yes, but why bother using Future if you're using Aquagloss?
  7. Aqua Gloss works fantastically as does GX-112 and Tamiya Gloss. Future/Klear/Johnson's Floor Polish has it's place... on your hardwood floors.
  8. Sidetracked with a request for an Indycar in time for Christmas, a helo for a classmate that flies them and then a quick sanity build before I get back to it. I acquired the Reskit wheels from the Ukraine to replace the vinyl kit tires and snagged the Hypersonic replacement canopy. Should have some pictures soon, mostly filling and sanding, which was causing some burnout.
  9. 1/48 Italeri AH-1W with markings for HMLA-367. This was built for a classmate of mine who is a pilot for HMLA-367. The Olympik update set was not available easily, and she didn’t really care about having shrouded exhausts so we went with the vintage 1993 kit in all its glory. Hard to believe nobody has made a newer version 1/48. Mission Models paints, GX-113 as the flat coat, combination of Tamiya PLW and The Detailer for a mild wash, with exhaust and dirt from Scalecolors. Hairspray chipping on the rotor blades.
  10. Email on: Revell 1/144 C-17 FREE *********JUST PAY POSTAGE ******** THIS IS A BUILDERS KIT - It was started by the previous owner and is half built. MAW Decals 48008 formation lights $3.00 Wolfpack Design GBU-32 $5.0
  11. Tamiya clear is a lacquer based product. AK real colors is also a lacquer based paint. You need something non-lacquer based in between the two to prevent the tamiya eating into the AK.
  12. Looking for a copy of this sheet. PM me if you have one to part with, along with the price you'd like for it. Thanks!
  13. On the Hypersonic website, they show both variants in the photos. However, it takes some sleuthing to know which is which. The late canopy has the additional sextant port over the third crewman's station for celestial navigation. Most of the Version A-3's had the early style canopy and were then retrofitted with the late variant. The canopy required would be highly dependant on the timeframe you are modeling, photos would be your best bet to knowing which variant is correct. The casual observer at an IPMS contest will likely never know the difference at all.
