    Modeling, history and trying to learn guitar
  1. Absolutely amazing. I'm still trying to build some skills with photo-etch. I'm sure it takes a lot of skill and practice to achieve your level of quality.
  2. Sharp looking build and great cam job.
  3. Fantastic builds. I love the planes from this era.
  4. Vincent, your workmanship and attention to detail is absolutely amazing.
  5. Very nice. Another beautiful Century Series jet.
  6. It seems like a bunch of us have the same story of getting back into modeling after many years. It looks like your off to a great start.
  7. When I start mine I will definitely start a log. Have you seen the 1934 movie Here Comes the Navy with James Cagney? It features Arizona and there are some great shots of her at sea and aboard ship. It's a corny movie but kinda fun but it's worth watching as an Arizona fan. It's available on ebay for real cheap. Oh, where the shafts exit the hull are called stuffing boxes.
  8. She looks great so far. I am close to starting my 1/350 version with all the after market goodies and will follow your build with great interest. Maybe next year I'll have the courage to get the 1/200 version. I worked for the Navy as a civilian from 1980 until very recently. In the early 80's I worked extensively on the Missouri and New Jersey. I was a draftsman and did the drawings for the upgraded fuel oil system, forced draft blower mods and a bunch of other stuff. On one occasion we had to meet Missouri in Pearl Harbor for a shipcheck. As we were coming in to land Missouri was just pulling in and we flew over her as the sailors were out in their dress whites to salute Arizona. It brought a tear to my eye. It was the most beautiful sight. Unfortunately I didn't have a camera with me but I'll never forget it.

    My 1/48 planes

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful collection. They are an inspiration.
  10. Looks like a great shop. You should have plenty of room to lay things out and organize your builds.
  11. I would like to see WNW or another quality company do a couple of post WWI yellow wing fighter. The kits that are available are decent but dated and lack detail.
  12. Yes, I have the Tamiya P-51 and also the F-4c 1/32 Tamiya kit. The Corsair is on my list for sure.
  13. Dan, My gloss coat is Tamiya acrylic clear and I'm using Mig panel line wash. I did try thinning it a bit more and that helped quite a bit. It flows better but still not great. I think I just over did it with the color coats. It's a lesson learned and it still looks decent. The next one will be better.
