    Sea King GIIC fast revieuw 1/32 (1/38)

    Aside from the ASW equipment fit and minor differences in the cockpit instruments, they’re virtually identical inside. There’s precious little published on the Sea King of any description.

    I'd have to want a big scale Sea King *really* bad to attempt that. Yikes.

    So this is "coming soon," right after the 1/32 TBD, correct?

    Late war F4U-1D interior colors?

    I suspect WWII era aircraft paint formulations and pigments would yield greatly different results from modern model paint formulations and pigments.

    Nice review! Are the big wing gun fairings and barrels from the B heavy fighter still on the sprues?? I don't see them, but I thought I remembered seeing them in another preview...

    It’s like Roseanne Rosannadanna once said...

    Had the consult with the surgeon today. I had feared he might tell us he couldn’t do the surgery because of the misaligned bones in his leg, but he said he can. So surgery is scheduled for a week from today. He’ll have to stay overnight of course, but the surgery center is really good. They did great for Lulu last October with the same procedure. Meantime he’s getting lots of pain meds, rest, and dog biscuits. Being an old street dog, he’ll pretty much eat anything you put in front of him, so that’s a good thing.

    Late war F4U-1D interior colors?

    Why not just use any of the perfectly good out of the bottle Interior Greens?
  10. You answered your own question. They weren't studying, or if they were, whoever was studying didn't know what they were looking at. It's been exactly the same story with more KH kits than not.
  11. Thanks for that tweak list!! Excellent.
  12. It’s always something. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. Got home this afternoon to find #2 dog Trooper (the amputee rescue) lying in the living room floor crying. Unable to stand or walk, and holding his left hind leg up (opposite corner from his amputation). $400 in sedation and x-rays later, a ruptured ACL, and the discovery of a previously unknown old healed spiral fracture of his left femur. That corkscrew is supposed to be a straight bone. That in turn has jacked up the geometry of his knee joint, putting stress on the ACL. He’s going in tomorrow for a consult with the specialty surgical center. A TPLO procedure is the usual treatment for this, but I’m concerned that they won’t be able to do that successfully due to the misalignment of the bones in the joint. Please everybody keep your fingers crossed for the boy. He’s really been through the mill in his short life. He was named Trooper by the Pima County shelter where I got him, because in addition to the three surgeries that culminated in them amputating his right front leg, he contracted distemper. And now we know he had suffered a broken leg at some point before that. He’s only about 4-5 years old, so he’s really had it.

    1/32 : Hasegawa F-86F-40 Sabre JASDF for Oct-18 !

    As long as people keep buying the 1973 mold, they'll keep re-releasing it.

    Late war F4U-1D interior colors?

    Be very careful in making assumptions. For one thing, there was a flash used for the photo, which is going to make all the colors look much brighter than they really are. And for another, read the book. Go by what Dana found in the documentation. Zinc chromate (the bright shade) was not authorized as a cockpit color. Mixed with black, yes, but that's how you get Interior Green. I see lots of models (not just F4Us) with bright green chromate cockpits, and in most cases they're 100% wrong.

    Tamiya 60325: F4U-1A Corsair

    I think Tamiya decals get a bad rap that's not always deserved. I've used them numerous times in the past. True, they're not super thin, but they're no worse than a lot of other (including aftermarket) decals.
