  3. I recently posted several items for sale and have received several email inquiries about shipping costs from my address.  I thought I would post a short explanation how shipping from/to an active duty military member, or a civilian who works for the military, that is stationed overseas works to shed a little light on the subject. 

    I am a soldier stationed in Germany, we use what is known as the Army Post Office (APO) for our mail.  The bad thing about that is we can only use the USPS as a shipping agent.  The good news is that we pay the same shipping rates for mail that folks pay in the lower 48 states.  The mailing hub where mail changes from control between the USPS and the Military Postal Service (MPS) is in Chicago for units based in Europe and the Middle East.  Postage rates are calculated using Chicago as the nexus that to/from shipping costs are calculated by. 

    APO’s provide two types of shipping for things like models Priority and Ground.   Shipping via Priority lets one choose between two types of shipping:  Flat Rate and non-Flat Rate.  A large Flat Rate box costs $18.85 to/from any address in the lower 48 states.  In my experience, most kit boxes will fit into a large Flat Rate box.  Often it is cheaper to go with a non-Flat Rate box; the closer you are to Chicago the greater the chance a non-Flat Rate box will be cheaper.  For example, let’s take a 3.5 pound box with the dimensions of 24”x6”x12”.  Shipping that box to say Dallas, TX in a non-Flat Rate box will cost $16.45, and you can probably get two kits in the box.  Obviously, a non-Rate box is the way to go here.  Normally, 4-8 business days after the package is mailed, it arrives at its destination.

    The second way to ship a package is via USPS Ground, which means the package will travel by ship and not plane.  It costs $13.97 to ship a package the same size and weight as the one above.  However, it can take up to 8 weeks for delivery.

    There is a “Media” shipping option, but the APO representative told me that was only for things like books and CDs.

    I hope my fellow modelers find the above information helpful.

  5. Hi Chris, thank you for the kind words. I used Microscale Crystal Clear dabbed on the antenna line using a toothpick. I took the photos last week and since then I have painted the insulators white, making them look much more realistic as that is what the color of them were.

    Getting the two seams taken care of that run along the nose is a pretty tough job to get smoothed out perfectly. I did not completely manage to do so, as there is a very faint difference in the curvature of the port and starboard sides. I used the "hairspray technique" for the majority of the chipping effects, supplemented by a silver pencil. The effect turned out pretty well on the prop.

    I agree with your comment about the lighting. When I took the photos I wanted to make it look as if the scene was taken in the harsh North African light, and I ended up over doing it a bit. The fact that I was too lazy to setup my photo tent and used my airbrush cabin as an ersatz one probably did not help matters much. I will likely end up shooting new photos, using the tent, in the future.



    Very nice 14 you have there :)/> For some reason I especially like the weathering of the prop blades. Will try to copy that on my next 109 ;)/> How did you create the isolators on the antenna?

    Also, very clean work on the nose area! I built that kit, too, and it was a little struggle for me to get it all clean there.

    I would love to see the faded paintjob in a different lighting setup. I think your lamp "overpowers" the paintjob in the images a bit.

  6. Hi guys, following are several shots of a Hasegawa Bf109 F-4 Trop kit that I recently completed. I added an Aires AM cockpit, and brass barrel tips, but the rest of the build is oob. The resin Marseilles figure came with the kit. I wanted to represent the aircraft as fairly faded; this being a common occurrence in the North African desert. The plane represents one that Marseilles flew circa May-June 1942, and is shown shortly after he had obtained his 100th aerial victory. The base is a simple piece of wood that I routered the edges of, varsinished and than applied a plaster mix to. The stones are cat litter.

    Thanks for looking,








  8. Beautiful work Randy! Your panel line wash is absolutely first rate, as is your overall airbrushing. I like how you got the very slight soft edge at the demarcation lines between the colors. Truly, a first class and beautiful build.


  9. Hi all, below is a Cyber Hobby Bf109 E-3 that I recently completed. I used HGW seatbelts, Master Barrels and Radu's radiator screen AM to add a bit of pop to the kit. I also scratch built nearly all the piping and electrical lines for the engine and MG Tray, as well as, the cockpit hood holding spring and the antenna springs, insulators and wind deflectors. I also ended up making the weld lines on the exhausts out of stretched sprue as I had to sand a couple of the moulded ones off while cleaning the parts up. The kit went together very well, with only the engine installation being a bit tricky due to all the piping that I had installed needing to be feed into drilled out holes. The plane is airbrushed with a combination of Tamiya and Vallejo paints to resemble a JG3 aircraft circa mid-August to late September 1940. Weathering was accomplished using a combination of AK interactive, Tamiya and True Earth weathering agents. I used a combination of the hairspray technique and a silver pen and pencil to simulate chipping. I wanted to show a slightly worn look without going overboard. Overall the model turned out pretty well, there are a couple of small errors, and the engine piping is not 100% correct, but it is close.
