    Sabre F-86 got a reaction from Kagemusha in New Group Build starting next month; Training Day....   
    Speak of the devil!  Postman just handed me the box from Alleycat. The conversion bits look marvellous. All I have to do is dig out the second G-6 kit or wait for a second one I ordered a few days ago to arrive. I also ordered their G-10 Upgrade set, ditto on first impressions.

    For a 40+ year old kit it turned out fantastic. Nice job on the finish, wish mine turned out half as good.

    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.

    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.

    Grunticus, I'm curious about that jig stand in the last photo. Is that something you whipped up yourself or is it a commercial set up?

    Got a package in the mail yesterday. About $800 worth of Eduard bits including the Big Ed for the 162. I also picked up the CMK resin sets for interior and armament. I look forward to getting going on this one. I plan on retiring soon, and since I am making a good buck working and not spending anything because of this COVID mess, Kitlinx and Spruebrothers are making a lot of money off of me. My last credit card bill was over $1600 USD. All model related. I figure on sailing in the summer and building models all winter.

    I have a thumb drive in my truck, I listen to her fairly frequently. She will live on as long as people listen to her songs.

    Sabre F-86 got a reaction from Scotsman in Cessna 172 Floatplane (1/20,Nichimo)   
    I got checked out on one of the wheeled versions. Way back in 73 or 74. CF-SUX believe it or not.  Took two of my buddies up for the full load test. Just got into the air and the instructor pulled the throttle to idle. Back down onto the last bit of the runway, across the overshoot, and about 50 feet into a corn field. Pretty much needed a new pair of shorts, but did ok as far as the instructor was concerned. We dragged her back out onto the taxi way and went down to the other end to do another take off and landing. As we rolled my two buddies wanted to know if we were gonna do it again. They thought it was awesome!.

    Latest I heard was that she came down in a tree, her fellow pilot landed on a roof. Both got out but too low for the chutes to fully deploy.

    One person taken to hospital. I have photos of those birds in Sault ste Marie Ontario when I was in college in 75. They were already 10-12 years old.

    Really nice work, but I gotta know. How the heck do  you put in all that detail in the LG bays and then paint it so intricately after the fact? I end up with the different colors all over each other.

    Just under a 1000 kits. 650+ are 1/48. I plan on going to shows when I retire and rent a dealer table and flog the 1/48 stuff. I have about 160 1/32 kits, and those I may actually get to do after I retire.

    I learned some basic cad work way back in 1991. Master Cam 3, I think it was. Never touched it since but I  am drooling at the 3d printing I'm seeing these days. Should kick myself in the arse and have another go.

    Your imagineering for the landing gear bay is very nice. Well done.
