  1. Thierry, I honostly know nothing of the subject. I don't know if the launcher rear is blanked off or not. I recalled the AH-1 has a multiple rocket launcher, and found the AH-1 rocket launcher is the army's version of the air forces' version. The difference from what I read is in the mounting details between the two services. I didn't see any comment concerning the rear end. The Revell kit can be found for under $10.00, I just figured the parts could be modified. Sincerely, Mark
  2. Revell might offer them in their 1/32 Cobra kit. Sincerely, Mark

  6. YOW!! To cool for school! Fantastico! Sincerely, Mark
  7. That is one groovey scheme! I sure like those yellow wings. Maybe I can incorporate that into my next build. Thanks for sharing. Sincerely, Mark
  8. 'A unique and colorful scheme for sure, although entirely ficticious.' Who knew? Sincerely, Mark
  9. This is something I started working on after that Dragon P-51D. It's gloss coated. I stopped working on it because I am disappointed with the top wing to fusalage connection and the traps between the colors. Right now I'm working on a tank for a build on another site. I'd like to think I'll get back to it and refinish it, but I don't know. The paint job was really a bear. To think I need to repaint it is a daunting thought to me. The Instrument Panel. I sanded down the rudder pedals and then removed the 'plastic film'. I tried to paint the white in the IP dials and failed. So I
  10. Thanks everyone, you're very generous. And the BEST! Alberto-I will work on my lighting! Sincerely, Mark
  11. I don't usually show my work, except at local meetings, but I thought I'd throw caution to the wind and show the world a project I did for my wife. My wife asked me to build her an airplane, so when I found these Green Nosed Mustang decals with her name (Janet), it was only a matter of time before I sat down and labored through the process of building an airplane once again. So, after over 20 some odd years of armor building, I managed to finish this: Painted checker board, fitted windshield. A littles silvering to 'Janet'. Oh well. Stenciled codes and serial number.
  12. 'The only time I know of red borders, was with the change to 4 tone camouflage and star and bar with the short lived red border late 1943-early 1944 Do you have any aditional info on this?' Thanks Alan. I don't know anything about this. I usually build armor, from which I'm taking a sabbatical, and building a few aircraft. Sincerely, Mark
  13. Folks, Don't Marine Corps aircraft have red borders on the national insignia? Thanks, Mark
  14. Lothar, Great job! Super duper! Love the shading, the highlights, and the demarcation line accents. Thanks for sharing. Sincerely, Mark
  15. Champher the inside edge. Sincerely, Mark
  16. Super job, Clive! Gabby's P-47 scheme has been a hit with me since Monogram put out their Gabby D way, way back in the day. I particularly like the contrast between the new and faded paint on the wing panels. Just super! Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing. Sincerely, Mark
  17. After each application I squeeze the sides of the container. This causes the front and back to expand which creates a vacuum and the glue in the stem retracts into the reservoir. HTH. Sincerely, Mark
  18. Great job. One of my all time favorite schemes on one of my all time favorite aircraft. Sincerely, Mark
  19. 'I'd like a 1/32 Bf 109G conversion to an Avia S-99 (with bubble hood etc)...unless there already one ' http://www.skywriters.net/reviews/arbas199.htm Sincerely, Mark
  20. Right on, brother. Great job. Sincerely, Mark
  21. My man. Thanks for putting in reality and sharing one of my all-time favorite aircraft in one of my all-time favorite schemes. Sincerely, Mark
  22. I know nothing of other forum discussions. Aero Detail: Same size. Kagero: Same Size Pascal Huguet Conversion: Same size. Sincerely, Mark
  23. Bekim, Superlatives all the way around. Skill, use of material and technology. Just a great and educational build. Mostly, I build tanks. I throw an aircraft in to break the monotony. Currently I am using this product: http://www.alibre.com/ to image the scratch built parts I am making and have made for this: http://grumpyoldman.smugmug.com/photos/516283911_unB5G-L.jpg http://grumpyoldman.smugmug.com/photos/516284542_hfaMV-L.jpg http://grumpyoldman.smugmug.com/photos/516285172_3gdKH-L.jpg so I can use this: http://www.printapart.com/ to make the masters. I've looked
  24. Fantastic job on this model. Inside and out, your problem-solving and painting were just first rate. Thanks a heap for sharing this build. Sincerely, Mark
  25. Sweet. Superb effort all the way around. I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying your build. Many thanks for sharing. Sincerely, Mark
