    Hi mpk,
     
    Is this where you contacted Hasegawa directly?

    I tried contacting them this way a week or so ago so I'm waiting to see if I get any parts this way. I was just curious if I was in the right place.
     
    Thanks,

    MustangManiac got a reaction from daveculp in A C-47 on floats!   
    Hi everyone,
     
    I'm back with some progress on the C-47 on floats. I have fared over actually all three wheel wells now but I forgot to take a picture with the tail wheel done. I've also been filling in the seams between the two halves of the fuselage with your standard green putty. Here's what she looks like now other than the progress of the tail wheel being fared over too.
     

     

     
    If you're interested in how I faired over the wheel wells, I cut the side out of a section of plastic tubing and started shaping and cutting until I was satisfied with the look. I will still fill in some gaps with glue or putty or maybe both around my fairings to make the complete.
     
    That's all for now.
     
    Cheers,
    Brady

    I know when it comes to a Zero Nakajima had a different shade more olive color from Mitsubishi more gray.

    MustangManiac got a reaction from MARU5137 in Silhouette Portrait 2   
    Hello everyone,
     
     
    I have a few questions before pulling the trigger on purchasing one of these. I believe I may get one of these from my wife for my birthday next month so I want to tell her everything I need/want to do this correctly and don't have to beg to spend money later.
     
    1. What software do you guys use for the design of masks? I was thinking the Designer Studio package, but is there other stuff you guys use that's better than what's offered by Silhouette?
    2. Where's the best place to get one from? Did you guys just get one from Silhouette America themselves or does someone else have a better deal?
    3. Where's the best place to get the masking material from?
    4. Do I want to use Oramask 810 or Oramask 810S material? What's the real difference?
    I appreciate any information you guys can share with me on making the best purchase and knowing I get what I need for my birthday the more details I can give my wife the better chance I have of getting what I need for this.
     
     
    Thanks in advance!
    Brady

    MustangManiac got a reaction from Swatto in "Secret" Spitfire versions???   
    Wow, I usually don't get this much response in such a short time to most of my posts. I'm getting the vibe that most of you guys think this was photoshopped too. I'm still entertaining the idea of doing a 1/48 "Twin Spitfire" because it looks interesting and fun more than anything. I always liked the out of the ordinary subjects, thus why it takes me forever to build, other than having a family. The only other place I have found anything similar to this subject is here at another blog or forum and I personally just think it's a load of malarkey because they're asking for help saving their blog more than anything. But it has a couple pictures. The hand drawn illustration looks like a rip off of the Bf-109Z that was destroyed in a bombing run by our boys in the last months of the war. I say that because it has a cockpit only on the left side and the right fuselage was made a fuel tank in this drawing, just like the Bf-109Z.
     
    Here's the only other thing I've found near to the first post:

    Hello everyone,
     
    I want your opinion on this website I found on supposedly "secret" versions of the Spitfire. It's a website based in the Netherlands I believe. I will say if it's not a bunch of Photoshop pictures some of the versions would be a fun challenge for an unusual conversion. I'm mainly looking at what is being called a Mk 199 Twin Spitfire. I'm just curious if ivI' stared at these pictures too long and begun to be fooled by someone's Photoshop skills or if I'm not crazy and they're really real. If I'm not crazy I kinda have tinkered with the idea of doing one in 1/48 scale with some leftovers of the 1/48 Airfix Seafire Mk 46/47 for the wings and a couple Mk XIVs for the fuselages.
     
    Here's the link to the website:

    Please tell me what you guys think of it and if it's just another Photoshop job.

    I had seen that link before and I just forgot to post it. I will say that someone did a decent job at a couple versions of these in real model form.

    I have to say that when I saw the name OLE.A.HOEL.
    I was thinking the whole website was a scam and you just have to think about what the name says and even the name might be a joke. It reminded me of a kinda dirty trick someone played at my old place of work one time when they were giving away baseball tickets to a minor league game that was local and they signed up an imaginary person up to win and "she" won tickets and her name was posted on the bulletin board. They named "her" Willis Phitincider with a made up employee number. I'm just wondering if that's what this original website I posted a link to is doing to us.
