  1. $55.00 is the reduced price, the original being $65.00. Ernest
  2. Hello, I am selling a little used Iwata HP-BCS airbrush with spare needle and spare nozzle; and also a quick release. I am asking $55.00 for everything. I accept PayPal and I can ship using the USPS from zip code 09112, the package will weigh slightly less than 1 pound for those who want to figure out shipping costs. I can ship the airbrush and accessories via Priority Mail or Space Available Mail, the first being slightly more expensive but much faster than the second. Continental USA postal rates apply. For modellers in the EU, I can ship via the German Postal System. Thanks for lookin
  3. Hi Nicholas, I just went through the same process you are going through. Sorry to say, I had no luck finding the AirDOC resin parts for the Ju88; I even contacted AirDOC directly and I was told all the resin AM stuff for the Ju88 is OOP, and there are no plans to do another production run soon. Eventually, something will undoubtably pop up one Ebay, probably right after I have completed the 1/32 scale Ju88 I am working on right now. Ernest
  4. Thinning the stash a bit; I am selling the following kits: 1/48: Cyberhobby Bf110 D-3 (This kit is one of the kits with two engines. Also included is an Eduard mask and an HGW Seatbelt set) $35.00 Italeri SBD 5 Dauntless: $15.00 Revell Bf110 G2/R3 (Is missing the revi sight): $10.00 Eduard Roland IIc ProfiPack: $15.00 1/72: Revell C-160 Transall Eloka/NG: $10.00 I accept PayPal. I can ship USPS either Priority (Fairly Fast) or Space Available (Pretty slow), to the USA using domestic mailing rates or the rest of the world outside of western Europe using international mailing rate
  5. Hi Adam, I have a 1/350 DKM Bismarck and a 1/350 USS Hornet that I would be willing to sale. PM me and I will get you some photos. Ernest
  6. Thank you for the explanation, it was very clear. Ernest
  7. The long working time on the F14 was worth it in my eyes as it is strikingly beautiful! Cheers, Ernest
  8. Beautiful work, especially the chipping. May I ask how you did it? Ernest
  9. Really great work on both models! The ground work in the Spitfire diorama is especially noteworthy. How long did the F14 build take? Ernest
  10. Hi Craig and Chris, thanks for the kind words. Craig, I thought the undercarrage was too long also when I was building the kit, but it measured out nearly exactly when I overlaid it on the scale drawings I have. It looks like the pilots have struck a chord with people. Ernest
  11. Guys, thank you very much for the kind words. To answer the question about the figures following is how I painted them. The uniforms were painted with Lifecolor paints - the trousers and tunics being airbrushed - the rest hand painted. The faces, and what little can be seen of the hands on the Wick figure, were painted Vallejo Flat Flesh as a undercoat. I used two different techniques to lay in highlights and shadows on the uniforms. On the Wick figure I used washes for the shadows and oils for the highlights, frankly the contrast turned out to be a bit stark but functional. I used oil p
  12. Hi guys, I just finished a simple diorama featuring Eduard's Bf 109E-4. The scene is set sometime in early to mid-November 1940 and depicts Major Helmut Wick describing an aerial combat to another pilot right after landing. The figures come from two separate sources; Wick is sold by Model Design Construction and the other pilot is an Ultracast figure that can be purchased from several sources. Both figures are resin. Construction went fairly smoothly, the only real problem area being the fit of the cowling which was not surprising considering the kit is designed to showoff the engine with
  13. Fantastic job! The plane looks great and the water is very realistic and well done.
  14. Very sweet build. Using a rotor blade for a nameplate is a great idea! Ernest
  15. Hello all, this is my first 1/32 scale WWI aircraft. It is an OOB build with a few scratchbuilt improvements. As I don't normally build WWI planes I decided to go simple and selected an aircraft that does not have a lot of rigging. Overall it turned out ok, but there is much room for improvement. Enjoy the photos, Ernest
  16. Hi guys I have the following kits for sale or trade. Unless otherwise noted the kits are complete and unstarted in their original box. If you are interested in trading I am willing to trade a 2 or 3 kits for one to make the values even out - I'm pretty flexible here. I accept PayPal for payment. I am a soldier stationed in Germany and will ship using the USPS. I'll send the packages via Priority Mail (It gives the best speed for cost). For those of you that don't know all mail going to or coming from servicemembers stationed in Germany departs/arrives in NYC. Postage is only charged from the p

  18. Some more progress yesterday and today. Painting the streaky Fokker camo on the wings and forward fuselage was tricky to bring off correctly and I was only partly successful. Also the wing strut is a bit too short for the lower wing and I had to add a bit to the bottom of the struts to get the center and lower wings to align correctly. I also added the right side oil or fuel filler, which did not come with the kit. I scratchbuilt one from some spare parts and drilled a hole in the engine cover. The machineguns and ammo/ejection chutes were a little fiddly to get aligned but in the end the
  19. Hi all, following are some WIP photos of my current project. The model is Roden's 1/32 scale Fokker DrI. It is a good basic kit. I decided to forgo buying any aftermarket detail sets and to build mostly out of box, adding some detail through scratchbuilding or spare parts from my collection of left over stuff from previous builds. I decided to depict Ernst Udet's aircraft during the late spring of 1918 before his Jasta recieved the DVII. The paint job is striking, if a bit tedious to mask - so far it is turning out ok. The build itself is going smoothly as the model goes together well, n
  20. Hi Gary, I did a partial build log; not as detailed as I normally do, but there is some information that might be of interest to you. There are a lot more photos of this build, a few "in progress" ones as well. I'll be glad to send you what I have. Sincerely, Ernest
  21. This is my second build of the season. It is Revell of Germany's big 1/32 scale kit of the Arado Ar196A3. I used Eduard's PE upgrade and HGW seatbelts to add a bit to the kit, but it would have built just fine out of box. This kit is fantastic value for the money, I paid $28.00 and feel that I got a lot of juice for the squeeze with the purchase. The only downer with the entire kit is the engineering of the canopy, which uses a system of tabs in assembly, which make for a very tough challenge in getting it together neatly. It is nearly impossible to hide the tabs once assembled, but in tr
