  1. Thanks to all the folks who have helped me shrink the stash. Here is a sample of some of the kits I have yet to sell. For a complete list of kits, just pm your email and I will send a complete list. Make me an offer I am very motivated to shrink the stash. Please include your zip code so I can estimate the shipping. 3 or more kits = free shipping AMT/ERTL P-40F #8795 P-40K #8794 P-40N #8798 HobbyCraft P-40C #HC1451 Sea Fury #HC1583 w/ Cooper Detail set for Sea Fury #CD4802 Sea Fury #HC1531 w/ Cooper Detail set for S
  2. Hi all! After about 3 months, this one is finally finished! The 1/48 Academy MH-53E Sea Dragon from HM-14 Vanguard, callsign "Vulcan 552", circa 2013. This aircraft was destroyed in an accident in June 2012, but with no injuries or fatalities luckily. I have wanted to build this kit for quite some time, but wanted to wait until I felt my abilities were high enough to do it justice. Well that time is now! The Academy kit is really quite nice, great detail, and it really fits very nice everywhere. I used very little putty on this build. But there is one big achilles
  3. Haven't done much modelling the last few years, and I've been looking through a lot of builds lately, of the Tomcats that have come out in the past few years (while I wasn't building any!)---I don't think any has been praised as "clearly the best one ever"----that said, I'm wondering what one "has the best odds of looking good when built". A master modeler can deal with any issue in any kit---that's not me! I'm looking for one where I won't have to spend 100 hours trying to get parts to fit. I would basically want to "slap it together out of the box, and be proud of it". Skills are rusty,
  4. Academy is to rebox soon the Revell F-86D as 1/48th North American F-86D Sabre Dog "ROKAF - 108th Fighter Interceptor Squadron" kit - ref. 12337 Sources: http://www.academy.co.kr/6q/board_news_main.asp?pMenuId=BOARD00002&pCode=12112&pCategory=NEWS5 http://mmzone.co.kr/mms_tool/mt_view.php?mms_db_name=mmz_media&no=5946 And as Academy is reboxing the Revell Sabre Dog for the Korean market, Mono Chrome is to do the same for the Japanese market with the full supp
  5. Hi all! Back again with my latest completed project, the 1/48 Academy Su-30MK2 Flanker-G of Tentara Nasional Indonesia Angkatan Udara (Indonesian Air Force), circa 2014. This model was inspired by my wife, Cicila, who is from Indonesia. This model is now proudly displayed in our living room and she is very happy with it! Having some issues posting this post in it's entirety, so I will break it up into multiple posts...
  6. Dear ARC Colleagues A few photos of my Academy F-8E from VF-162 based on USS Oriskany in 1967. Lets see if my photos work here?? Regards Andrew
  7. Hello All.... Old build .. Posting the pictures now.... Out Of Box build with no enhancements anywhere. The kit was a MCP kit so had to do basic primer and preshade to bring all the parts in one uniform color... Super kit to build... I love the color of this scheme just had to have one ... Love the F4 shape too ... So will be adding more to the Display.. ... ;-). Enjoy the pics.....
  8. Hello Phantom Phans. This WIP is for the forthcoming Brigade Models conversion set for Academys F-4B into the prototype F4H-1. I have obtained from Kevin a pre production test shot of the mouldings as seen at SMW this year. This does not include canopies or decals as they are not ready yet. Availability of the set should be March next year. Kevin has agreed to add a second seat so later small radome aircraft can be built. Any changes for this will be up to the modeller, as the main purpose here is for a first flight aircraft. Also, there are no instructions (I suspect I may be w
  9. Greetings everyone, Thanks for stopping by! It is finally great to be coming back to this hobby after taking several years off this hobby to concentrate on my pilot career development. A lot has happened in those years and fast forward to 2019, with my career now stabilised, I can take time to get back into this hobby which I have always loved. I have since gotten a new airbrush and completed 3 airliner models as well as to play around with the airbrush. The first airbrushed model was a Thomson Boeing 787 and the most recent finish being an A380 in the livery of Thai Airway
  10. I have heard a lot of good things about this kit so I decided to pick one up and I started the build immediately. It is really a good kit but not perfect. I have mixed feelings about rised rivets. I know this is how it supposed to be but you need to be very carefull to not damage them while handling the parts. And I am not talking about sanding but just holding in hand. The pit lacks of seatbelts which is painful especially since it is hard to find any good pictures showing how they look. Nevertheless the parts fit together pretty nicely and the kit seem to be well engineered. So this is what
  11. First, let me start off by saying that this is NOT a review by me. I am wholly unqualified to put off such a thing, as I am just getting back into model building after decades of not building for various reasons. Anyway, I just happened upon a review like none I have ever seen before, and believe me, over the last 6 months, all I have been doing is researching the kits I hope to build. So I found this Korean page, giving the most thorough and detailed review I have ever seen. The review has more than a dozen photos of the aircraft depicted in the kit, from inside the cockpit, in-fl
  12. Another one for the pile! I snagged this 1:288 Academy kit for maybe $12 a few days ago. I wanted a shuttle kit that would be quick to build, small, had the tailcone, and decals for Enterprise. For this kit, I want to depict Enterprise during her first free flight in 1977, during the Approach and Landing Tests. The finished model will be going to a friend a co-worker, a fan of nerd stuff, table top games, space exploration, and NASA. We have had many conversations about different TV shows and the space program and video games, he is a great friend and colleague. He has
  13. Hi all! I would like to share one of my latest completed projects, the 1/48 Academy U-2S Dragon Lady. I actually finished this one about a month or so ago. This kit consists of parts from the old Hawk molds (from well before I was even born!) with updated parts to make a modern Sierra. So it goes without saying that this kit contains raised panel lines. So I decided to go ahead and rescribe all of the panel lines, which I have never done before. Let me just say, I am not so sure I will ever do this again! I really HATE doing it, and I am pretty much terrible at it. I found t

  15. Looking for more info based on a conversation in the R-M GB, if the Academy nozzles fit onto the Monogram burner cans for the F-14A, would it be too far of a stretch to assume that the Aires set for Academy would fit the Monogram as well? @twong figured out how to work it using the kit parts so I'm curious if any resin parts would work too.

  17. Hello all Here are pics of the build process for this kit, the model is already finished and you can see it here. Complete model This is the academy kit along with the eduard photoetch set and cmk cockpit resin set which also include a vacuformed canopy and photoetch parts. The kit was modified to make it more accurate or to enhance the detail; my knowledge on this subject is limited so feel free to comment about so others could benefit. If you are going to build this kit I recommend to correct the wing dihedral at least, otherwise the model will
  18. Okay call me crazy but I picked up this Testors M3 Lee kit for a quick build. I need decals though for it (and have nothing in my spares that comes close) as it comes with no decals. I can use either option from the Tamiya kit or from the Takom or Academy kits. I just need something. ;) Happy to buy and/or reimburse shipping costs. Thanks, Lee
  19. Hello all Looking for a simple project to give the first try at acrylics paints, pulled out this model from the stash. Japanese WWII aircraft are the least of my interest subjects so, in my mind, everything about the zero was well documented and the only topic unsettled was if the hinomaru paint flake off as bad as the rest of the paint or crews keeps it in pristine conditions. I thought a few clicks on google would solve this but instead realized how little I knew. After several months of work in the model, web surfing and two books read finally got it completed, still
  20. Decided to go with Academy's new FA-18F Super Hornet (new tooling). Going to build this as an air to air specific interceptor with all air to air missiles (6-8 Aim-120C/D and 2x AIM-9X). Weapons spread will be 2x Sidewinders on wingtips, 2x AMRAAMS each on two underwing dual LAU 115 launchers, and two AMRAAMS on single LAU 127 launchers. May put another 2x AMRAAMS on additional single LAU 127s on each wing for 8 AMRAAMS total (less realistic build). Using the Hasegawa Weapons 5 kit for most of the AIM-120s and the LAUs. I do have the option of using the Attack Squadron ones I purchased, but I

  23. Hello friends Here I bring you one of the main fighters that the United States used in the Second World War. It is the P-47 Thunderbolt in its long-range N version. It is made of the brand Academy at 1/48 scale. https://youtu.be/9ly3cgH2VgU Greetings and I hope you like it
  24. This is my first build. Had lots and lots of issues throughout the process, but finally was able to finish it and am pretty happy with the overall results! If you'd like the full backstory on the journey, check out the in progress thread: Enjoy!
  25. Began this build well, then disaster struck in a moment of pure idiocy. I laid it down in a puddle of plastic cement..... Nice. Then, I had this: Will not be using heat guns so nonchalantly anymore. FLash forward a week later: This is after 5-6 rounds of putty/sand and priming. No scribing, and some detail is gone, but oh well, its workable. Close up on the fix. Fast forward another week (to last night): First coat of MM Gunship Gray is down and smooth as can be hoped for.
