  1. Troy asked me to post some pics on how to use Madworks sanding pads on the David Union sanders with double-sided tape. First, you'll need a Madworks sanding pad along with double-sided tape such as the super easy to use Scotch on a regular roll that doesn't have any pesky backing paper to remove: Simply pull of enough of the double-sided tape to cover the bit you'll be using, then cut a piece of sanding pad to fit: Stick it all together, and you're ready to go: Why use sanding pads on the sander? Mainly to sand curved surfaces
  2. Recent-tool Hasegawa kits. I've built both the newer Hasegawa kits and the newer Revell kits, and didn't care for the finicky fit of the Revell. D
  3. Because the Dragon Loach is the wrong scale. HTH, D
  4. There were two versions of the kit produced. One had nose parts for mounting a Cox or WenMac engine, as well as holes in the left fuselage half for control-line (CL) leads to the bellcrank. The other version had a more detailed nose and closed up left fuselage half to be used for assembling it as a display model only. Most of Aurora's "giant" kits were prodiced in a similar manner as two versions. I have the display model version. It is really cool, but not what one might call a "scale" model. There are large bosses and holes for screws on most of the parts. The wings are curved s
  5. Since a using a tank for demonstrations isn't what LSP is all about, here are a few examples of what can be done with these stencils from T-Rexx Tools... These are the 'splash' stencils on the Alexen FG-AJ0115 set shown above. The sheet is designed to be nipped apart (stainless steel PE) into individual splashes: One sample method of using them on an LSP (Hasegawa 1/32 Fw 190A-5 that I built last year). Tape the stencil in place: Then shoot whatever muddy color you're happy with (I like RAF Dark Earth cut with flat clear and extra thinner) throug
  6. Got a live link to their website? I tried typing in the "www.xcito.site/" given on those images, but just get an error meassage. D
  7. These stainless stencils from Alexen are the greatest thing to hit modeling since the airbrush. Seriously. I've been looking for something along these lines for decades, and jumped on them as soon as Troy found them. With all the different patterns and styles, they are (IMHO) a direct replacement for the 'salt method' and many other tedious weathering and/or texturing techniques. Weathering & texturing doesn't get any easier or quicker than simply spraying through these stencils. Live link to T-Rexx Tools on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/sch/t-rexxtools/m.html
  8. Why not just post a link to the actual UH-1B page? http://www.hobbyboss.com/index.php?g=home&m=product&a=show&id=1555&l=en D
  9. Take a look at this thread HERE on LSP for Troy's David Union US sales through T-Rexx Tools. HTH, D
  10. I don't do FB, so I have to ask: What did Meng get wrong? I'm not a Ford fan, but a friend is and I was considering this kit as a gift to him... D
  11. Apparently completely oblivious to the warped wings, too. Oh well. What's to be expected of someone that refers to a pilot's seat as a "chair"? D
  12. Terrble news. His playing was absolutely epic: I was only 12 when that hit the streets in 1978, and it instantly changed my understanding of music forever. D
  13. It's supposed to help celebrate the upcoming 50th anniversary of Nissin Cup Noodles, and is intended more for the Japanese market where such things are common knowlage. In addition to the full-color kit, Bandai will also be releasing the Gold Edition kit next year: https://hypebeast.com/2020/9/bandai-spirits-hobby-best-hit-chronicle-nissin-cup-noodle-golden-edition-release Ain't for me, but it would be interesting to see more oddball kits released as promotions.

  14. Right there with you on Floquil's Old Silver. None of my other paints are as perfect or as rare. I have 4 bottles left, and am dredding the day I might run out. D
  15. There is this: https://www.largescaleplanes.com/articles/article.php?aid=2720 HTH, D
