  1. Wowzer!!!! What a gorgeous F-4 Phantom!!!! Beautiful build!!!! Inspiring!!!!
  2. Some great comments here. Agree with them all. All the 109 kits out there, regardless of Hasegawa, Trumpeter, and others, all have their issues. That said, Hasegawa 109's are nice kits. There is a multitude of aftermarket out there that addresses some of the faults, whether it is in resin or photo etch. So, go big and build one!!!
  3. Some nice and attractive builds there! Thanks for sharing!!!
  4. I've done it. Wish I had a hammer sometimes to beat myself in the head for doing it. Sometimes, just plain ole shock sets in when you realize the aftermarket item(s) cost more than the kit!
  5. Nice job!!!! Looks fantastic!
  6. I was very fortunate. I ordered the set for the Academy Nieuport 17 kit. It is an awesome set and I'm grateful to have it. I know many have had issues with this outfit in making as well as receiving orders. It is a shame, because there are so many great cast parts from them. They remind me of Cutting Edge resin they are so well done. But getting them is something else.
  7. I'm just glad y'all are safe!!!! Glad you're getting your lives back in order. First things first! God Bless you all!!!
  8. Instead of using CA glue, use watch crystal cement. Glues canopies down like they were nailed. It does fill the gaps and obviously won't haze your canopies. I have used this stuff for years and it is excellent. Better than any "glue" I've tried in mounting canopies. I also dip mine in future. That being said, I've never had to "erase" a center seam before, but I have taken a badly looking canopy. Sanded the heck out of it with fine sand paper, polished with Brasso, cleaned them, and then dipped them in Future. They have turned out well for "contests".
  9. Well dawgy, this is going to be another great build, you animal! LOL!!! I still wish I was your neighbor! LOL!!!
  10. I have for my knees. Too many years playing football. The stuff does work, but ya gotta take it every day and stick to it.
  11. I wish RevellWhomever, would put the real space kits back out. Everything from the Mercury stuff to the Space Shuttle, and everything in between. These kits are going for bricks of gold on Ebay, Scale Model Graveyard, and private sales. Would love to see them come back and some serious thought by Eduard and others, in photo etch sets and decals. I always tell my kiddos, you grew up with science fiction like Star Wars. My generation had the real thing! Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, etc. It was an exciting time to be a kiddo then!
