  1. Open box, sealed bags on both. F-94C - $45 Pit road Vulcan B.2 - $40 shipping from 94952. USA, PayPal preferred. PM if interested.
  2. I know it’s an old thread but….nice work! Do you recall what overall color you used? I’m looking at doing a similar scheme and your color looks spot on.
  3. I’ve been brushing more in recent years, just find it more relaxing and enjoyable (it’s a hobby right?). found this site with some good reviews on paints for brushing, check it out: http://www.dogma72.com/category/paint-review/
  4. Yeah, the D is $99, still a good price shipped for the “A” Also recently got about a dozen gunze aqueous for $2.60 a jar shipped. Some deals at times if you look around!
  5. Got mine today, still some left for $80 shipped on Amazon.
  6. Not in a very long time….although I’ve had some regulated to the shelf of doom for 5-10 years. Goal the last few years has been to finish all of those, warts and all.
  7. Years ago I read Joe Lyons feature on Hyperscale about modeling the Midway Airwing circa 1958, and then after I made a trip to the Midway museum years ago, decided I wanted to do the same in 1/48. Been gathering kits, resin, and decals ever since. It's definitely a scheme for the fury that hasn't been done before. Kursad, I have some pics (not many as I haven't found much) I had been gathering for reference on my eventual build. if you need some for reference, let me know I can email them to you.
  8. There's a thread over on Hyperscale, one of the guys is posting in progress pics of his build: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/hyperscale/no-chatter-about-the-roden-1-144-b-36b-yet-t519067-s50.html I've got 3 of the Hobbycraft kits, its doubtful I'll get the roden kit. That money is already spent....It doesn't seem to be enough of an improvement over the HC kit (for me) to get another one.
  9. Gomez and Morticia 10 year old bonded pair, both blind in one eye and Morticia nearly died over the summer from PLE. Both a package deal years ago from a shelter Asher, 15 next month, another rescue. Now blind in one eye and almost blind in the other, and the happiest, most laid back dog we’ve ever had. It’s going to be rough when his time comes.
  10. I know, not the most exciting, but I’ll put my vote in for VA-63 Furies on the Midway.
  11. That sounds awesome….here’s a similar what if of the B-36 younger sibling the B-60 in SEA camo.
  12. In injection molded plastic, no particular order: 1/48 B-45 1/48 Piper Enforcer 1/48 F-86H 1/48 RF-8 1/48 Martin Mauler 1/48 F-108 (I know dreaming here) 1/48 F6U Pirate 1/72 or 1/48 B-32 1/72 or 1/48 B-23
  13. I’d love to see this one reissued again in 1/48!
  14. Hey Don, got anything else? I’ve got a C but would trade my Fj-2 for a 1/48 Tamiya P-38 or 1/48 F-14 ( any boxing), ICM 1/48 MiG-25PD….
  15. Professionally building kits for others? Or Professional model maker working for industry (and there are lots of niches, mine was industrial/product models). Two very different things. I did the latter for 20+ years. Great job, killed my hobby…finally finding my “joy” again after retiring.
  16. Great paints, when they were discontinued I went down to the train shop and got 4 bottles of old silver, bright silver and platinum mist. Still have more than half of that left. I save them for certain projects!
  17. I remember well, watching from my crib with a bottle of milk in hand 😉 Obviously I was too young to remember. I did read his book though, my dad had the hardcover in the early 80s. Read it multiple times when I was 10-12 years old. Rode my bike to Longs Drugs and bought the 1/72 Hasegawa kit. Mixed a bluish Grey from Testors square jars and painted it in one sitting with one of their little white handles black brushes. It hung from my bedroom ceiling until I moved out!
