    Mostly WWII aircraft including the B-17, P-39/P-400 and the P-51, but now getting into WWI aircraft - different a lot more colorful and FUN!. Dabbled with small scale tanks as well.

  1. That is what is great about this site, sharing info, pieces and parts! I'm very happy to pay for someone to cut a mask for me and mail it. Cheers, Chris
  2. Testing mixed paint colors is EXACTLY a problem I'm having now - great idea! Ditto the drawer labels... Thanks Rick!
  3. Oh, this is a good one!! Thanks Mike!
  4. OR: Will this help set up a minor cottage industry where we can ask people who already own a cutter to make a mask for us and we pay them for the work? Having this as a resource would be fantastic...
  5. GREAT idea and this should push me over the edge to buy a cutter as well!
  6. Chuck, Just WOW. I have the same kit, and also both of the Barracuda resin replacements (the 'flawed' one and the replacement). I must say, following your build, I don't know if I want to tackle the kit now! You are doing stellar work and the replaced/enhanced rivet detail is amazing. And the panel lines. I'm watching!!
  7. From a previous position I have boxes of old business cards that are not useful any longer. Does anyone have an idea of what they can be used for, before they hit the recycling bin? Thanks! Chris
  8. Thanks Brian!! Slowly getting there....
  9. Back from my first trip since Feb to visit family, and while back up on work, took a few minutes this evening to check out those amazing Model Monkey exhausts and get the AMUR resin flaps attached (AGAIN). I keep grabbing the wing, and the flaps, and they are not exactly attached THAT strongly... Those exhausts are amazing - just look at the bolt detail on the exhausts. These may be a little dusty in the photos. I've already test fitted the exhausts through the shrouds. I'm wondering how much paint I'm going to scrape off getting the exhausts through the shrouds.
  10. Product teaser: The Model Monkey exhausts arrived from Steve (THANK YOU AGAIN) in gray resin and they are beautiful. I'm leaving tomorrow to see some family but when I get back looking forward to posting some pictures and of course, getting them painted up and installed. Chris
  11. The problem is the ODO judge only looked at the first part of #4, and not the second part: where the clear intent of the same is to portray a sexual scene. Nudity itself is not explicitly banned. For Model Classic (and IPMS Nationals judging as well) we've had really good discussions about this rule and especially its application to historical nose art. The ODO judge would have bounced 'Passion Wagon' as well, but improperly. I did run into a judge at Nats who tried to disqualify aircraft with nude nose art by nitpicking on anything else he could find. Took the o
  12. Eduard Update! I received this message from Eduard Customer Support this morning for all you Revell Builders: Thank you Chris, I have a message now that this particular part (CN: Eduard Brassin P-51D Propeller for Revell, 632117) was really redesigned in the past. So we will sent the new bigger part. The shipment will leave to your address within 7-10 days. Have a nice day and enjoy your build. Have a nice day. Petra Solcova Eduard M.A. customer support I also received a message last night from Steve (Model Monkey) about his new resin exhausts since
  13. How about that? And personally deciding to disqualify entries because he was offended, IPMS National rules be damned. I don't think we will see a repeat at ODO, whenever the next event happens to be.
  14. Thank you! Ha!! I'll put it right next to my Air-a-Cutie P-39. The good news is I believe that particular judge has either retired from judging or moved to a different category where his sensibilities are not offended. That was a ridiculous episode. He was going to judge Model Classic last year or the year before, but in the Automotive category to avoid the problem. And if he thought WWII had racy nose art, his head would positively explode over the Vietnam war nose art! You joining us for the July 1st meeting?
  15. Hey Brian, No explanation, just an apology and that they are sending a replacement. When it arrives I'll measure and compare the two. I don't think resin really shrinks and molds don't either so not sure what to think at this point. I've not seen anyone else mention this as a problem, and with the kit piece fitting perfectly I'm sure (for once!) it is not something I did during the build (unlike the fuselage width issue...). Hopefully a one-off issue. FWIW, the Eduard Prop set is from Jan 2019 (thank you Spruebrothers for putting the date on the label on the box
