    Model armor, aircraft, figures, and railroads.
  1. Love that last photo. I had no idea, (or never noticed before), how many panel #s were on an aircraft. Do the numbers stay on, or are they painted over once an overhaul is completed?
  2. Beautiful work on a beautiful bird!
  3. Beautiful work, (as usual)! A question though, do you blend your shading, or just paint very thin lines of your shadow/highlight shades? I've been playing with it both ways lately, and it seems that the "straight line" method works best for fabric folds. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Jerry, and please continue posting your work. I get a lot of inspiration from you old 82nd farts!
  4. Btw, Shan, if you have the "Live After Death" album, with the liner notes, (boy doesn't THAT make me sound old!), it should have the list of dates & venues. Our town was misspelled as Glenn Falls, NY. It's actually Glens Falls. On a side note, you know you've raised your 23 year old son right when you have to hunt him down to get you Maiden CDs back!
  5. Awesome! Eddie rocked Desert Storm in more ways than one. Maiden is my second favorite band, right behind Black Sabbath, and one of the best concerts I ever saw, (World Slavery Tour. Right after Powerslave was released). We played Killers, Number of the Beast and Powerslave constantly. Once the orders were given to enter Iraq, the 3 songs we played the most in our Humm-Vees on our "boom box" were Invaders, 2 Minutes to Midnight and Run to the Hills.
  6. I haven't used them yet, but the fact they make the correct IP in 1/32 for the Fiat G.50, is enough for me to buy.
  7. Thanks for all the kind words. I'm slowly incorporating my attention to detail into my aircraft builds. Since my garage/man cave is currently undergoing a remodel, (which will allow me to add my second hobby of HO railroading to the fold), I'll try to go through and see what I may have posted of my builds. On a side note, so far my aircraft displays are the typical "sitting on the flight line" kind of thing. I'm going to attempt changing that by adding a little bit at a time.
  8. I put a lot of thought into that before I mounted it there. We had a similar issue in Desert Storm with our Humm-Vee spares. The 1st generation had no tire rack on the rear, and we couldn't mount them to the rear hatch, (would interfere with the hatch locks), and there was no place inside with all the ammo and gear, so we mounted them on the hood, but off-set as I did here. My driver figured it would double as an impromptu sandbag of sorts. I tried to put it as close to the right edge as possible. This keeps the fighting compartment clear, gives additional small arms protection, and allows decent forward visibility. Besides, it gave me an excuse to have a standing figure!
  9. Since I've been slacking in the LSP construction lately, mostly due to a remodel of my garage/man cave, I figured I'd at least post a picture of my most recently completed diorama. To be honest, I don't know if I've ever actually posted any of my work. This is the Tamiya M21 mortar carrier, with a modified crew, on it's way through a village in France.
  10. A 1/32 S.M. 79 would certainly be a purchase for me!
  11. Personally, I'll wait as long as it takes for a good B model. I have so far. Hopefully I can get a couple, as I have a couple favorites I'd like to represent. You can guess which one I'll do first, just look at my avatar (hint hint)!
  12. I'm going to hold out for a 1/32 scale dirigible!
  13. I'll be following this with interest. As much as I love the P-38 and P-47, I've always felt the P-39 got a bum rap. As I kid, I started reading about how the Soviets took a "lump of coal" and made it into a diamond. To me, the P-39 is more important to Soviet air superiority than any of their home grown birds.
