  1. Just lucked into this thread. Beautiful job on them all. I have the same 4 in my stash and will be looking into getting the Vector engines for them. I'd seen photos of them finished back when they first came out but your builds are light years ahead of the ones I remember seeing.
  2. When I was a kid, we used to save our models til summer and take them to the cottage. We had a zip line from a cliff on one side of the river to the beach on the other side and used to send them down and shoot at them with .22. (yeah we were demented in those days). This puppy is prime .22 meat.
  3. Thanks for posting the spray info. I'll give it a whirl on my paint pig. I think part of the problem is that I didn't thin the paint enough.
  4. Scheme 2 or 5. So I guess in the long run, the ranking on manufacturers for the F-14, its still Tamiya then Revell and finally Trumpeter. I have one each of the first two, but looking at the work you need to do to make the Trumpie look good, I think I'll pass on it. Unless I find one in a garage sale for cheap.
  5. I ordered both knob sets, the electrical connectors, the engine bits and various sizes of black and grey braided line. Arrived in mint condition.
  6. i was wondering if you could tell us the air pressure, and tip size you use for the black mottle effect. I tried it on my G10 but it is way cruder than yours. I'd like to duplicate it.
  7. 6 inch magnifying lamp, fine tweezers and a steady rest for the hand. Worth a try.
  8. I'll have to drag the Trump A-10 down off the shelf of doom. (spilled a bottle of laquer thinner on part it). It's less than 25% started, was working on re-forming the nose. Currently working on a Revell Bf-109G10. Should have that done in a month or so.
  9. Man that is some fine looking aftermarket. I can see myself going blind trying to put them on but what an addition.
  10. Gotta say, the mud is A1. Spring time in a farmers field. Well done.
  11. I think I'll be having a look at these. my hands are getting kindy jumpy these days and normally i use Bare Metal Foil. Cutting around the edges is getting trickier.
  12. Sorry Jennings. I'm in Canada. They want us all nice and safe and wrapped in bubble wrap. Gunz Sangyo vanished from the shelves about 4-5 years ago. I still have some 70/71/65 and a couple other RLM colors but nothing for the later war paints.
  13. Very nice. Wish to hell our nanny state government hadn't banned the Gunze line. I got quite used to using it. I'm about to paint up a Revell Bf-109G10 and will be giving Vellajo a try first.
  14. I'll have to get one of these. I recently picked up the Trump P-40N which has tribute markings for Lt Col. Boris Safonov. Did some reading on him, and seems he started off in Hurricanes and I-16 type 24s. Think I'll do a string of his. I have the Hasegawa P-40E in stores, and a Hurricane as well.
  15. Don't know about the rest of you, but I'd be screaming my head off to get out in about 5 minutes after the back rest came forward. Way too claustrophobic for me.
