  1. @MARU5137 Nice! Looks like oxidized aluminum can look pretty close to that hazy off-white color in that pic I posted. @Jennings Heilig Absolutely agreed. It's hit or miss as usual
  2. At the risk of sounding like a complete idiot—you have my sincerest apologies for my ignorance—but "NMF"? Is that some kind of term for bare-metal? If it is, then I wholly agree it doesn't look like a bare metal surface. Although, I really like the way it looks and was hoping it was authentic. Being this is most likely wrong would explain why I haven't seen anyone build it before.
  3. Great to know. So, would you have a recommendation for a more accurate source? In particular, I've been wanting to know about this paint... Is that color white, light gray... "eggshell-lavender-love"? Kidding, it's obvious by the American insignia that it isn't white
  4. Holy cow, wouldn't have guessed they were from that far back. Thank you for the reply.
  5. I've recently gotten back into modelling and have discovered a trove of kits and info, and the skill level worldwide is off the hook, so I'm quite inspired. I've gotten a few kits and whilst perusing the internet to figure out how I want to paint them, I've seen the following type of image all over the place and wondered where they're from. Here's an example of the kind of reference art I'm speaking of :: Does anyone know who is responsible for these? Given they look scanned, my suspicion is they're from a book series of some sort...??
  6. Its maybe sacrilegious to admit and it won't happen, and people will get red in the face for me even mentioning it, but I'd love to see some armor in 32. Decent kits too, not rubberband tracked snap-togethers. If Tamiya—or anyone else for that fact—did this I'd buy whatever they'd be willing to press out. At the least, I'd like to see the Hind-D in 32. Actually any of the giant or killer choppers for that fact.
  7. LOL, now everyone will know the reason for my divorce. This hobby is proving to be much like a cocaine habit... just a lot more expensive. Btw, I'm not that versed on WWI aircraft, but the moment I saw this built in Air Modeller's Guide to Wingnut Wings, I was hooked.
  8. Amen! Alas I'm but a pauper with a dream and a bottle of glue. Anyway, thanks for the heads up on how to differ the two. I'll definitely check those instructions out.
  9. Thanks, so this is basically the way of identifying block productions and/or identifying a variant of that era. Of course, given the time period, pretty much every plane was a variant of the one before (intended or not) :^] Looks like I'll have to dig deeper in finding out which AEG G.IV I want then. Thanks again.
  10. What's the difference with Wingnut models that are listed as early vs. late? Specifically, I'm looking to purchase the AEG G.IV but I'm not sure if this is about the plane or the release of the kit. Thanks in advance.
  11. Wow, thanks for quick reply and the photos. I can hardly believe those engines on the Blériot Bl-75 are even real. Maybe it's the props, but they look like some kind of placeholder, but on the other hand, given that most engines (in that era) looked like an industrial appliance, they're still really cool.
  12. I was wondering if anyone could identify the two large planes at the bottom of this image? Just in case the above image link is borked, here it is on Pinterest :: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/11610911514405603/ Thanks much.
  13. Just added a new item to the list on page 1; Master Details new nose defroster assembly.
  14. Yuppers! Cycling is like a cocaine habit, just a lot more expensive. My skinny bike is a mid-range frame and though $tupid expensive still nowhere near the price for some of the bikes that show up at local group rides. Anyhow, my stash and guilt is growing at an unreasonable rate but I'm still stoked a Gotha landed in my collection. Especially before the remaining Earth's inventory retreats into that heart-wrenching area of the Amazon titled, "Available from these sellers".
  15. Just added Master Details new Control Columns to the item list on the first page (response #13) of this thread.
  16. Oh wow, so since this is the case there appears to be a choice for builders of the HKM B-17G kits to keep them 'as-is' out of the box. I've been debating on whether or not to stagger these waist gunners. Thanks!
  17. I've always heard and seen the waist gunner positions on the B-17 being staggered, but this picture appears to show otherwise :: http://media.defense...F-1234S-003.JPG Here's the article where the photo resides. It's 10th pic in the gallery :: http://www.nationalm...g-fortress.aspx Understandably there are ton of variants but could this pic be from a different kind of bomber altogether? The belly gunner makes me believe it's still a 17 but I'm no expert. Were there any other bombers that had a belly turret like this? If it is a 17, why aren't waist gunners staggered? ~Chaz
  18. I'm not trying to be rude or funny, but Milk run? Blocks?? I imagine blocks would be a reference to a series of planes built in a certain time period, so they would share common traits ... is that right? Milk run is something I've never heard of. So please, do tell!
  19. Looking great. Consider this a polite bump ~Chaz
  20. Thanks Thierry. Your input is well-received since I found an variety of different type of scrapers and was wondering which would work best. On a similar vein I ran across these seam scrapers as well. Given that they can second as a radius gauge, they will probably end up on my workbench :: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Military-model-s-optimal-velocity-U-Star-special-clamping-wire-scraper-UA-0019/32580052871.html?spm=2114.01010208.3.323.Dqun1F&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_2,searchweb201603_1&btsid=1443e61d-3eac-4105-8c29-b0de29dc3fd8 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/U-Star-up-to-model-special-clamping-wire-scraper-UA-0020/32580923913.html?spm=2114.01010208.3.152.Dqun1F&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_2,searchweb201603_1&btsid=1443e61d-3eac-4105-8c29-b0de29dc3fd8 Here's a review of these by Flory Models :: ~Chaz
  21. Would the scraper heads on these be curved and/or perpendicular to the handle, so they're drawn like a rake to remove material?
  22. Interesting, especially since I would never have noticed. Would you mind sharing what's wrong with them?
  23. Master Details just sent me an email with some new 1:32 scale .50 cal ammo chutes. Only $5.95 USD, so I'll probably pick them up to check them out :: http://masterdetails.com/web-store/pilots-figures-details/kit-number/50-caliber-ammo-chutes-detail?utm_source=Master+Details+Newsletter&utm_campaign=ff8537456f-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2016_10_27&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_0014908117-ff8537456f-161340570
