  1. Thanks John. That was my 5th Monogram Tomcat. Like you I like to build the Monogram kits. The Hasegawa F-14 being nice was supposedly a nightmare to build (didn't try one myself) and the Tamiya kit is to pricey for me. With Monogram, if I screw it up I can always get another one rather cheaply and go again. Jerry
  2. Recently finished, the Monogram 1/48 F-14A Tomcat of VF-84 "Da Bones" along with it's mate the big 1/32 Revell Tomcat. Used CAM decals, True Details seats, Master Model AOA and Alpha probes and Steel Beach chin pod. Definitely isn't the Tamiya kit. Cheers, Jerry
  3. Was it Mission Of Honor? Daughter sent me the trailer on it. Suppose to be one coming out in Nov. called "303 Squadron" and its trailer is different. Cheers, Jerry
  4. Yeah, Greg in Sherman TX is a good guy to contact to unload a whole collection at once. Told my daughter in Arlington to contact him when I go upstairs to build models. Cheers, Jerry

    Revell Bug

    What I have seen in the preceding pages has definitely turned me off this kit. Will absolutely not be getting one. What a shame. Good luck Mark. Cheers, Jerry
  6. I use MicroSol on all my Alclad painted subjects and have had no adverse effects . With and without being sealed. As Dan stated above a sealer is a good.. Cheers, Jerry
  7. Similar thing for me too. Was working on the Revell P-51D and dropped the prop hub which is not very small. Should show up on the carpet pretty easily, but could not find it anywhere. Looked for quite awhile and finally gave up. Later my son came by and I was telling him about it and he helped look too. Then he said "there it is". It had landed on my show wedged between the the tongue of the shoe and my sock. Like you said, what are the chances? Cheers, Jerry
  8. Odd. Mine fit on perfectly. I had a bit of trouble getting the front wind screen to fit in flush. Cheers, Jerry
  9. I am with Jennings. That is just absolutely mind blowing. I can't add anything else but WOW!!! Welcome to LSP. Jerry
  10. Was wondering the same thing or be available to buy on DVD. Bad head cold, hurting back and left hip kept me from going on the 27th. Cheers, Jerry
  11. Oh poo poo. Have built 2 of them and totally satisfied with them. I am one who doesn't give a rats patoot if it is a few mm off one way other. Looks like a Hellcat when finished (3 foot rule).

    P-47N wheels

    I am getting ready to start the Trumpeter P-47N but could find no wheels for it so decided to go with the P-47D wheels which I don't believe are correct for an "N". Would love to have some Harold. By the way, I HATE RUBBER TIRES!!! Jerry

    Maybe back up but it is slower than moleasses in the winter. Takes upwards to 3 minutes for a thread to load. No problem on other forums I am on. Jerry
  15. About all I can say is Prayers for all those affected by this tragedy. From what I am reading that it is quite a large number of persons and families. Horrific. !!! God be with them all.... Jerry
