    New to Airplane Models...

    Welcome to the forum. The most trouble you will have with the Camel is finding accurate documentation of the real thing. Kensar

    1/48 Roden Pilatus Porter

    Finished this workhorse. My first Roden kit. Nice detail, but panel lines are wide and shallow. Added details include an aluminum spinner, turned on the lathe. Thanks for looking, comments welcome.
  3. Just completed this Airfix kit. First OOB build I've done in years. Overall, a nice kit, but a couple of fiddly parts - the landing gear knuckles and fitting the wing to the fuse. Anyway, I like how it came out. Thanks for looking.
  4. Finished this resin kit by Ardpol. Good detail in the kit and I added some.

    Hasegawa Nakajima Ki 84 Hayate

    Very nice build here. One question - there is a lot of paint chipping on the bottom and almost none on the top. Was the paint on the bottom more prone to chipping?

    Anyone heard from SW lately?

    I have just received a message from SW. They are very busy with the Yak-9 project, hence the delay in replies.

    Anyone heard from SW lately?

    Yes, I replied to an email thread that was started earlier, so the address is correct. I also PM'ed him through this forum. Still no reply.
  8. Don't know if this lack of communication is typical and I know they have been working on a new release, but I ordered an engine and haven't heard anything from them.

    ICM Bücker Bü-131D "Red 102"

    Nice result, Jan. I see you've added some detail parts - nice touch. I have the same kit on my bench currently. Did you find any specific problem areas?

    LS-8 sailplane completed

    Thanks for all the comments and 'likes'. I used Tamiya pure white spray can for the color and Future for a clear coat to seal the decals. We got through the hurricane without much fanfare here in western NC. The eastern part of the state took a hit.
  12. RoG 1/32 LS-8 sailplane completed while waiting for the hurricane rain to get here. This kit sat on the shelf for about 8 years until I found something suitable for the pilot figure. It is a re-posed slot car driver figure.

    Is there a site giving 2nd hand value for kits?

    Checkaflip does all the work for you.
  14. This is a low parts count model with most of the work in the cockpit. It sat idle for years until I found a civilian pilot figure, which is a 1/32 slot car driver figure from Immense Miniatures. It's the first figure I've done, so take that into consideration. Thanks for looking!
