  1. How did you make the handles for the PCL'S (Power Control Levers) Tim
  2. Try these for your cockpit knobs. They look totally real! They're small resin knobs that can either be inserted through a drilled hole or snipped off and glued on. https://anyz.io/ Scroll down and you will come across them. They've got beautiful cockpit console and panel decals too. Tim
  3. Looking forward to the instrument panel now! Tim
  4. What kind of magnifier do you use for that? Man that's small! Tim
  5. Pete, Is shipping a hassle? How long did it take to get your package? Or is their a US distributor? Tim
  6. Sweet, gonna get me some of them. Did you cut the stem off and glue it on the PE? Tim
  7. Pete, I know the decals from Anyz but they sell knobs too??, If so, send me a link. I gotta get some!!! Tim
  8. Wow, looks so real. Amazing scratchbuilding job you've done!!! Can't wait to see the cockpit started. Tim
  9. Now, it's on to scratchbuilding the console using sheet styrene. It took about 3 1/2 hours to build it and another 2 hours to glue on all the radio faces which came from the kit and Airscale PE. Next I scratchbuilt the FLIR and SABER receiver and glued them on where the C2 operator that I talk to said they were. I used Archer resin louver grills for the front ventilation fins.I'll make up the electrical connections for the console next bench time.
  10. While waiting for the gloss coat to dry on the F-14, I decided to do some work on the MH-60L. Those stripes were a pain in the *** to tape up using 1.5mm tape. I shot Tamiya Sky Grey over them to simulate the non-slip stripes found on H-60's. I then added Mig North Africa dust pigment to the floor around the crew chief seats. That's all for now Tim
  11. Finally after years of wanting to know information about my friend Joe Pascetti's bird he crewed down in Mogadishu-Super 63, I have been able to befriend many crew chiefs and pilots who were there and was given many pics of OGS and their MH-60L's. This is Super 63, the C2 blackhawk that had the air and ground mission commanders on board during the Oct.3rd/4th battle in Mogadishu. So I finally started building it. First I had to correct the instrument panel and center console to represent close to what they looked like on the real MH-60L. The caution/advisory panel is located on the bottom left of the console on the real thing. KH's panel, though very nice, represents a later year panel and has the CA on the instrument panel itself. So I took and cut down and sanded the Academy part and shaved off the detail on the console and glued it in place. Next i shaved off the detail on the KH IP and replaced it with some PE detail parts from Airscale. Tim
  12. Awesome. Thanks for the tip. EDIT: I checked and are they the clear ones or silver? Tim
  13. How did you make the cabin lights? I'd like to borrow that idea for my MH-60L. Tim

  15. Finally after years of wanting to know information about my friend Joe Pascetti's bird he crewed down in Mogadishu-Super 63, I have been able to befriend many crew chiefs and pilots who were there and was given many pics of OGS and their MH-60L's. With info in hand, I started with the build using KH's new MH-60L kit. Here's 2 pics of Super 63 down in Somalia. To represent the non-slip stripes found on H-60 floors, I used Aizu 1.5 mm tape. Boy was that nerve-racking. I then sprayed Tamiya Sky Grey over it. I think it was worth it! Tim
  16. Whoa, gotta get me some of that! Great job on the disco light!!! Tim
  17. The green square at the left bottom of the roof pic. Tim
  18. No, I mean the 2 front pieces of the roof toward the front. Tim
  19. What color green is that on the front? Tim
  20. Don't know about the apple phone, but if you have an android, just go to the play store and DL "Hobby color converter". It has a scale calculator with it. I use it all the time! Great paint callouts from alot of manufacturers as well. Highly recommend it!!! Tim
  21. Me, I go between LSP, ARC and Modeler's Alliance. MA is pretty cool seeing they have campaign ribbons for builds pertaining to the current campaign going on. I like it! Tim
  22. Me, I go to Spru Brothers, Scale Hobbyist and Hobbyworld USA. Tim
  23. Me, I'm going against the grain. I chose Photobucket. For 4.99$ a month, I can post up to 2500 pics. I don't post much, so 4.99$ is good for me. I tried the others, but PB seemed the easiest to navigate and post. Tim
  24. It's that time of the year again when Ken from Badger gives out his birthday offer for airbrushes. Any airbrush for 56$. You can't beat that at all. Did anybody take Ken up on his offer??? Me, I bought a Sotar 20/20 for 70$ shipped. Tim
