  1. It's getting to look a lot like Christmas . . . Love this, Mike. Sincerely, Mark
  2. Mit reflective presentation surface. Good show. Are you using Packard/Merlin blueprints as a build reference? If so, from where? Thank you. Sincerely, Mark
  3. I use this for all of my stripping needs. A mild paint remover. Won't hurt the plastic. Sincerely, Mark
  4. Great scheme! Super presentation. Sincerely, Mark
  5. Well done. Not an easy exercise. 'Unfortunately, this Italeri plastic is harder than almost any model I have ever worked with, so this was bit harder to do than usual.' Italeri seems to hit or miss when it comes to plastic and detail. The PT boat plastic, and especially the detail, is soft. I was really disappointed in the softness of the detail. Their earlier armor kits, M7, M109, M32 DUKW, and the like, had great fidelity of detail. Sincerely, Mark
  6. Nicely done. Thank you for following that up, Dave. Sincerely, Mark
  7. God Bless You and Keep You, Pete. Sincerely, Mark
  8. Do it!, Bro. The Packard V-1650-7 Merlin is near and dear to my heart. I did a lot of studying to scratch-build engine parts to the Tamiya Mustang in my signature. Sincerely, Mark
  9. Lovely work, Peter. I'm surprised the throttle quadrant is mounted outside of the framing. Sincerely, Mark
  10. Thank you, everyone. I don't have notifications on for this thread so I don't know if anyone is stopping by. I guess I have to change that. '. . . some colored sections of (plastic) on the main landing gear and engine. Do you buy them or make them?' Jim, the color plastic on the main landing gear and engine is stripped insulation off of the blue/white roll of solid core copper wire below. 'How did you glue all the support stuff inside the canopy?' I use regular super glue. But first I dip the canopy in Future to seal the plastic against
  11. That's the ticket, Bruvah. Sincerely, Mark
  12. Really nice problem-solving on the scratched surface issue, Chuck. Good show. Love the DACO books. Sincerely, Mark
  13. Sure puts a smile on my face. Great work, Fozzy. Safe travels. Sincerely, Mark
  14. '. . . do you have any info on the gunsight and gun camera mounted on the IP cowling?' Try these guys, they say they have more than they show online: https://www.ov-1mohawkassociation.org/home/manuals Mod 4 Mounted to A-1E (AD-5) Mounted to an AD-5 Skyraider. I don't know what the gun camera looks like or its' nomenclature to know enough to research it. Anyway, lots of OV cockpit stuff here. Not much so JOV. Maybe there will be a gun c
  15. Great show. Love that! Sincerely, Mark
  16. What a great feeling. Is it signed? Are you given credit for inspiring him? Can you post your dio? Thank you. Sincerely, Mark
  17. I'm building a couple of Bandai snap tight kits at the moment, as well. Will be getting a couple more. X-Wing, for sure. I keep vacillating on the MF, but it's not getting any cheaper. Remarkable engineering. Fit is perfect. Detail is minute and crisp. Everything you would want a model company to example in their products. Really impressive. Sincerely, Mark
  18. Good show. Is there a crane for that wheel & tire? Thank you. Sincerely, Mark
