  1. I'm having issues with Tamiya decals (1/32 MkXVIe Spitfire). They basically shattered when I put Mr. Mark Setter on them. Any thoughts or suggestions on using Tamiya decals (found a new set on eBay that I'm going to try again)? They seem pretty thick. Thanks, Chris
  2. Ali, Do you think these may work on the Revell 1/32 F-4G? I was thinking if they're pretty close in size, I would just leave them in the open position (which is the point of having all that detail anyway) and no one would really notice any small size difference. BTW - I got my F-4G landing gear and door set the other day. Really nice work! Best, Chris
  3. I'm in, too. I'd prefer to have the mask up (looks cooler, IMHO that is) as my painting skills would probably not cut the mustard on the face. People are doing amazing things these days for this hobby. Very cool and impressive. Chris
  4. Damian, Love my Spitfire and P-38 sets. I'm hoping you may be able to do the 1/32 Trumpeter F/A-18 family in the future. I'm actually building the E/A-18G and putting some heavy resin pods on it and am worried the kit gear won't be able to hack the additional weight. Thoughts? Best, Chris
  5. I have Harold's cockpit set that Patrick mastered. I've just manged to break off all the toggle switches, which ANYZ produces but not in 1/18. You can see what the cockpit set looks like if you look up Patrick's build thread. He did a great job on the master and Harold, as usual, produced a great resin set. Really nice work. Chris
  6. Got my set in the mail yesterday. Amazing detail. Really outstanding work, Jan! Can't wait to see what's next. Chris
  7. I have a similar problem. I'd like to make my 1/18 AV-8B cockpit look better and I emailed ANYZ to ask if they could scale up their sets to 1/18 but never received a reply. I would think it wouldn't be too hard to do so. Chris
  8. Chuck - I want to try X-22 as a gloss coat for decals but would like to first ask you what ratio tamiya lacquer thinner to X-22 do you use? I'm also assuming it will work over an acrylic paint job. Am learning a lot from your (and everyone here) builds so thank you for your patience in explaining how you're doing things. Best, Chris
  9. Two GBU-38 sets ordered. Thanks, Dave. Keep 'em comin'! Merry Christmas! Chris
  10. I'm in! Pod+pylon(s)+weapons, please. I'd take masks as well. This might be a good kit to learn painting markings on.
  11. Thank you guys. Just wanted to be sure before I committed glue to plastic.
  12. Is it ok to use Tamiya extra thin to attach clear parts? Am attaching forward windshields on 1/32 Corsair and 1/48 F-14 and I don't want to cause any fogging of the clear plastic. Thanks, Chris
  13. Got mine last week. Very nice work! Thanks for taking the time to do these, Jan. Chris
  14. I would like to get a set if still available. Chris
  15. Thank you very much. I appreciate your inputs a lot.
  16. I'm hoping to see if anyone knows whether the landing gear struts and gear bays of the Spitfire changed much between marks. I want to graft Eduard's resin gear bays and bronze gear struts for the Revell Mk IX into the Revell Mk II I'm building. Eduard does make some PE for the Mk II gear bays, but I'd rather use the resin insert and bronze gear. Thanks, Chris
  17. I would jump all over a 1/32 YF-23, Chris! One of my favorite jets.
