    S-3B Viking - scratchbuilt

    I've really enjoyed following this build. I've never been a big fan of Navy jets, mostly due to lack of exposure--I live nearer to an air force base--but this has given me a newfound appreciation of their beauty.

    Fantastic attention to detail!
  3. I'd use a step drill bit for the landing light; I've used them successfully on styrene sheet without grabbing up to 7/8" diameter, and the holes are clean and circular.
  4. That's interesting how the spent shell casings and link chutes are interconnected between the guns, I never really thought about how that was done before. Re: The task at hand, I'd agree with Barry about using sheet brass or aluminum.
  5. Awesome! I attempted the old Combat Models 1/48 conversion for the Monogram B-24J in about 1981. It was my only attempt at anything vac-formed. The nacelles defeated me, but I had the rest completed. Can't wait to see what you do with this!

    That's a lot of chain inside the cowl. Is that what actuates the cowl flaps?

    1/48 KC-130J Harvest Hawk Done

    That's beautiful! Love the color scheme on those birds!
  12. I've never built a resin kit, and I must say, it doesn't look like any fun at all cutting the parts from the resin pools!

    Question about Tamiya cement

    Thanks Collin! I'll order some right now.
  14. I used to use Ambroid Pro Weld, and was always very happy with it, but apparently it's no longer available. I picked up a bottle of Tamiya Extra Thin, but it doesn't seem to have a very strong bond on the test pieces I tried it on, and isn't very solvent-y. What is the best solvent cement available in the US? Thanks!
