  1. Love the schemes especially the mig! It is quite unique. Your WIP reports were very good too! Thanks for sharing. Geoff M
  2. Ditto on Imgur Geoff M
  3. By no means am I an expert on this, but I believe modellers are more worried about the size, shape, panels, access ports, curvature, straightness, etc. etc than the Navy or the Air Force are. They just put tanks on an airplane. 😀 Mizzar's picture above illustrates there were different configurations of the same item. Geoff M
  4. As Paul stated, Monogram originally did the XX wing and later reissued the kit as a X wing in a Promodeller box. The Encore kit is the Monogram (now Revell) plastic reissued with some additional bits. I don't know about any recent reissues but Scalemates.com is your friend for that info. Geoff M
  5. Birds have wings and planes have wings. Pull the wings of a bird and it wont fly. Shoot the wings off a plane and it crashes. Wings make things fly! 😁 Geoff M
  6. Kind of the nature of these limited run beasts. Try gluing one side down and allow it to fully set. Then glue the other side in place and clamp it in some way to hold it in place while it sets and hope for the best. Geoff M
  7. We have a local Hobby Town which is handy for paints and such. My go to is Sprue Brothers, Caracal Decals and lately I've tried out 48ers.com. Geoff M

    I don't know how completely it renders a QF-4 or if it is still available, but here you go. QF-4N Geoff M
  9. Those look great and they are phantoms 👍
  10. I love happy endings😍
  11. Darren, I feel your pain. I can't help with the canopy but I can relate a similar experience. I am a bike shop owner and we had customer in the Marines, stationed in Okinawa, who came home stateside to visit his family and he is a cyclist. He decided to purchase a bike (not a cheap one) while he was home and have us ship it to Okinawa. This opened a can of worms. He had an APO address for shipping purposes and UPS and FedEx don't ship to APOs. We had to use USPS. Postal has box size limitations, so we had to take the bike apart and put the frame in one box and the wheels in another box to meet the size limitations. We shipped them off to his address. A month or so later we get a message from him that he has only received one of the boxes with the frame. We try to initiate tracking but to no avail. USPS claims it is lost in Japan, Japan says it is lost in USA. After a couple weeks of trying to find out what happened , we sent him a new set of wheels (not cheap ones). He messages us a couple weeks later that he got the wheels and a couple days later the original pair showed up. Now he has to mail a pair back to us. It was a mess we will never do again. Good luck with the canopy hunt. Geoff M
