  1. I'm beating on the old Airfix 1/24 190.. I know the three main issues with the kit but need pointers on where to find info on the landing gear fix. Any help ? Thanks Vaughn
  2. I'm building the triplane.. builds well but needs aftermarket. It's based on a replica so the cockpit is a bit off, other than that it's a good kit. To really do it justice it needs MG's seat belts and some scratch building. I would suggest Archer Rivets 1/24 rib stitching. Cheers Vaughn
  3. I would suggest a patch section to repair damage ?
  4. I built Bandai armor waaayy back ... far too many moons ago. I had a diorama in mind and have been on the hunt for one of these truck at a reasonable price for some time.. finally got it. The kit is old, it's not up to todays standards but oh my is it nice. A coat of Microscale decal film over the 46 year old decals did the trick... yes those are the kit decals. Very few problems, no extra's added ... a fun nostalgic build.
  5. Thanks !! Oh ya ! That one is on my radar too !!
  6. Seat belts were made from masking tape & twist tie wire... Almost ready to close up the fuse but the rudder does not have a control horn so I made one from the framing of the photo etch fret... and with that.. it was time to start fitting things together... Feels good to be back at this.
  7. I was totally amazed.. and it wasn't all that hard.
  8. But... and there is always a but.. I found my beautiful aftermarket engine is too big in diameter for the cowling.. to get it to fit I'd have to remove about all the cylinder heads.. and I don't want to butcher it .. I tried thinning the cowling but the motor forces it to sit high and 'proud' ... So I've decided to set the aftermarket engine aside for this build and save it for another (yes, going to build another of these kits and really go to town on it !)
  9. So I figured.. nothing to lose.. and gave it a shot. And OMG.. it worked !! Placed alongside the motor it certainly looked the part...
  10. Wow.. has it been a year ?... I got bogged down by several things with this build and shelved it. The biggest thing for me was the prop, had no idea what to do. Well, recently I happened on a video that showed how you could do it with of all things, colored pencils and Tamyia clear colors..
  11. Just got back to finishing up the Tripe.. not great kits, but not bad either.... and no, not red potato colors on this one...
  12. Very sad news... https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-53091856?fbclid=IwAR3Oz6wjvibtJmrKuDt54AD1UJt1dG0deIBAiuhUW3OySUy2oqv7m60o_YI
  13. My kit arrived this morning.. 4 days by Fedex. I'm a happy camper !!
  14. I'm interested in a couple of sets as well... have the 21st Century kits.
