  1. That’s what I keep telling him when he gets a little hard on himself. And he did this all by himself, decals and all. The only thing I can take credit for is the grass base that was recycled from one of my old builds.
  2. Hello everyone, Been a while since I posted anything. Starting a new job and moving across the country has put a little bit of a hamper on my LSP building but that hasn't stopped my son from picking up where I left off. He is ten years old and this is his second LSP build (and only his second build ever). His first was the Trumpeter P-40N. The figures are from ICM. Thought I'd put this up here for everyone to take a peek. Hope you guys like it. He's asking to build a 1/32 Trumpeter Swordfish next. I tried to get him going on a Revell 1/32 Fw-190 I had in the stash and
  3. Thanks Ray! And thanks to everyone else for their kind comments regarding the build. Cheers, Ben
  4. I also enjoy reading these topics. I'm less interested in the number of kits people have accumulated as I am in the variety. While we are all here because we enjoy building LSPs, it's interesting to see what other interests people have manifested in the form of their model stash! For example, my most coveted kit right now is the 1/12 Tamiya Porsche Carrera GT... I can totally relate to this. At the end of the day, for many of us, the stash represents a serious investment. Should probably take steps to protect it but I am also in denial...so I'll do it tomorrow.
  5. Thanks to everyone for their kind words about the build. I would highly recommend this kit to anyone - I didn't really encounter any major problems. I have a post-war version in the stash that I am already looking forward to starting! Going to build something modern first though to give myself a little break from rigging. Hello Ray. Thanks for the offer to publish this. I would be honored (and thanks for the additional shipping tip!). I only wish I could get some better pictures but unfortunately that's not going to be an option for a while... Cheers, Ben
  6. Thanks for the comments, guys. It was a fun, stress-free build. It sure is!
  7. Thanks for the link!
  8. OK, last one guys, I swear. This is my COVID-19 quarantine build and I'm pretty happy with the way this one turned out. As with the previous three, no real weathering to speak of and built mostly OOB with exception of HGW seatbelts in addition to the Vickers and double Lewis guns courtesy of Eduard Brassin. Sorry I didn't get any pics of the underside - I'm too damn scared to flip it upside down! As I mentioned in the introduction for the Junkers D.1 build I posted earlier, I'm really not at the point where I build for historical accuracy so this bird has features that were not inc
  9. Thanks. I decided on all my recent WNW builds that I would just build them factory fresh with minimal/no weathering. I don't quite have the skill (or is it patience?) to appropriately weather WW1 birds quite yet. My original intention was to build Schafer's D.VII with the red cowling and the winged serpent but I messed one of the serpent decals up so badly when I was applying it that I was forced to go with plan B...
  10. Got another one for the gallery! I built this one a couple of months ago when I was in a little bit of a modeling funk so the goal was to build it cleanly and quickly (as a result, I decided not to fix the dreaded "gap" in the upper wing). Painted with Tamiya paints according to the WNW call outs. Only AM were the HGW seatbelts and the Master Models brass barrel for the LMG 14/17.
  11. Folks, Wanted to pass along some pictures of my recently completed early D.VII. This one gave me a little more trouble than the other WNW kits I've completed. Not sure why but I'm happy with the way it ultimately turned out. The only additions were the HGW seatbelts and the Master Models brass barrels. Hope you guys like it.
  12. Hey folks, I built this kit a few months ago and am just now getting around to posting some images of the finished product (no decent place to take pictures these days so my apologies for the poor quality images). As with all WNW kits that I know of, this one falls together and was a blast to build. This one was a completely OOB build with some minor detailing on the engine. As with a lot of my other builds, I'm not too strict about historical accuracy.
  13. Hello all, Did anyone who ordered anything during this sale actually get notification that their kit(s) shipped? I ordered two that were listed as being in stock at the US warehouse and the only purchase notification I received was from PP, nothing from Weta even confirming the order was received. Thanks, Ben
  14. Yeah, I snagged the 1/200 Yorktown for $145 shipped. Insane deal. No clue where I’m going to display that behemoth but couldn’t resist at that price.
  15. Thanks. Yeah, the chain kit really is a nice addition. The molded chain also looks very nice but not quite the same. Yeah, the Dauntless is the Trumpeter SBD5 and represents my first foray into LSP. Here's a few more pics if you're interested. https://www.largescaleplanes.com/articles/article.php?aid=2725 Cheers, Ben
