  1. Having built the Revell G6 and having had to live with the huge shape issue in the wing root/oil cooler area, I'll never buy another Revell 109. I've got the G-10 which I've already bought AM for. Dunno if I'll ever build it.
  2. Thank you very much, fellas. Thanks for turning me on to Flying S Models. He has a lot of interesting content.
  3. Thank you, Kev. I gave about half a second thought about scribing some lines into the fuselage. I avoid it whenever I can.
  4. My local club is having a group build so we can all enjoy the nostalgia of our youths. So, the rules were, pre-1977 molds. No Japanese molds... (as theirs were too superior) thereby restricting us to Monogram, Revell, and Italeri, basically. No bases unless it's part of the kit, and no rigging. I don't have any old kits. Between 1984 and 2017 I only built a handful of kits. And I didn't want to spend a lot. Luckily I found this 2007 edition of the 1968 molded Revell kit for 10AUD. It went together pretty easily and i did some major re-shaping of the spinner and made my own propeller blades as the originals were horrible, though of correct length. I used Tamiya and SMS paints followed by oils. The 15 year old decals took a lot of soaking to come free. But ended up laying down very nicely. One inspiration for this particular scheme was was dealing with that white tail. I had never built any big, white areas before, so I had no idea if I would be successful. I used oils in shades of gray and blue to give it shape. It was kind of refreshing to whack out a kit in less than two weeks. I fixed some shapes, but not all. The decals were probably the best part of the kit. Thanks for looking!
  5. Just looked there yesterday. Since they changed the site, I have a damned hard time finding anything.
  6. Is the Volks store the only place to pre-order from? I'm not seeing any of the Aussie shops offering it.
  7. Depends on what you have, really. The big ticket items are the Gotha G.IV and HB 29. You can auction them off at EBay for crazy amounts. But if you are trying to get rid of a bunch of Camels, not so much.
