  1. Noice Anthony! Looking good mate Wow I just realized this has been going on for almost 9 years!!! Ron G
  2. If you didn't fix it you know you wouldn't be able to sleep till you did...lol Ron G
  3. WOW! Looking good Anthony. I don't think I'm going to be going to that extreme on my build, but yours is coming together nicely. Ron G
  4. If you're worried about gluing them to the fuselage, put some Tamiya tape under them, problem solved. Ron G
  5. Zip ties, especially the ones you can reuse. You can apply pressure evenly around the fuselage. Ron G
  6. They are very nice castings, mine are very clean, almost no work to clean up. But you do need to separate the brake line from where it is attached to the bottom of the leg, don't cut it off, use a saw and be very careful. The part that you separated (when bent to shape) will attach to the brake drum on the wheel. Ron G
  7. Trumpeter/Hobbyboss wildcats usually go for $35 - 50 dollars.
  8. Hey Vynce804 Sorry but its the wrong size. B-25 = 30" SC - 30.0" dia./10.62" wide. B-24 = 36" SC - 36.5" dia./20.11" wide. I used the main wheel from a P-38 its a 36" SC Ron G
  9. Go for it Anthony, I need your expertise so I can follow you Ron G
  10. Hey Gunpowder I'm doing one over on the LSM forum because I can post pictures directly from my phone on there, check it out. Im working with Bob Sousa from H&B Hobbies aka the distributor of RexX exhausts and he is working on a set for the 1/24 Airfix Mosquito. If your not familiar with RexX they do metal exhaust for 1/72, 1/48 and 1/32 aircraft. They are galvanicly grown metal so they are extremely thin, already have a rusted used look, so no painting. But they are delicate. They are like the old Moskit ones. Should be ready in a couple weeks to a month. They will really spruce up the big Mossie. Ron G
  11. Hey Vynce804 It's a good kit, I have the gun nose "J" it will be a little heavy when done so, I suggest you get the brass landing gear from G factor they are really nice and will do the job great. The true details wheels are nice but the Brassin ones are far better, and more accurate. Ron G
  12. The first one is the one from the RAF museum and has color chips on the last page, great for matching or mixing your own colors. I have matched all of the colors I need to do PZ474 in Extra Dark Sea Grey and Sky and all of the roundels, code letters and serials with Vallejo Model Air paints. I have all the masks I need from Makater. I've never done paint masks, other then canopy ones, before. I have three bottles each of the EDSG AND Sky, just to make sure I don't run out in the middle of painting...lol Ron G
