  1. A-6E Intruder

    That's where the talcum powder comes into play. Makes it way easier to sand than neat CA. Adding a tiny bit of black pigment will make it stand out against the grey plastic.
  2. F-18A+ Splinter Aggressor

    Fantastic build!
  3. 1/48 F/A-18F VX-23, SD223

    Lovely display!
  4. Su-30MK II, Venezuela, Academy 1/48

    Absolutely stunning build!
  5. 1/144th MiG-21PFM

    Really neat! Could pass for a 1/72 build. Kinda wonder why Eduard didn't release a PFM of their own?

  7. Post number (#) in a thread - where is it?

    Sorry, but that's not what I'm talking about. I mean a number signifying the number of the post in a certain thread. My initial post in this thread, for instance, would be #1. Your reply is the second post in this thread. #2. This post here would be #3. Here are two examples, the first one from a very long thread (post #6863), the second one from a rather short one.

  8. It used to be that there was a small index number for referencing posts in a given thread in a numeric order. Made it really handy to refer to certain posts without having to quote them. "As displayed in post #17 of this thread..."" or something like that. Is that number gone for good? Can it be brought back? Sorry for the cryptic thread tile, BTW.

  10. AMK IAI Kfir C2/C7 in 1/72, new tool

    Working on one of mine at the moment. Certainly enjoying it so far. Have installed the landing gear bays. Multiple parts with great detail and great fit. Clever engineering with tabs and slots ensures that you can dry-fit the parts and the parts stay in place. Just add a lick of Tamiya Extra-Thin. Now at the point where I have to paint the cockpit. I'm also trying to convince a Monogram F-105 pilot to drive the Kfir. Would love to see more manufacturers giving us detailed multi-part pilots (separate arms and head) able to fit their respective cockpits. What do you think, Martin? I'll post some pics once there's actually something to show.

  12. Su-17M3 'Fitter-H'; Finished 07/12/2017

    That is gorgeous!
  13. Hmmm. "Growler drawing giant dick". Now there's a headline if there ever was one. At least to our Brit friends. Erm.... probably unrelated, but... has anybody seen Kolja round 'ere lately? Just asking.
