  1. Crown Royal and coke with a dash of squadron liquid cement. A great way to start the day!
  2. Keep in mind this is what car modelers call a curbside kit, no engine detail, so all your detailing will be in the cockpit, wheel bay, etc. Good luck. If you do a google search for this particular kit, there is a modeler on this forum who built one and it took him awhile to build it. Check it out: https://www.largescaleplanes.com/articles/article.php?aid=1761
  3. No, I believe Jerry Rutman went out of business several years back. You might find one on ebay or a member here on the forum can possibly sell you one. Expect to pay high prices for this kit if you are looking for the complete P-51B kit.
  4. Hello: I've bought from Dmold before, a Ferrari 312B correction set. The correction set was shipped from Russia, while his PAYPAL address was in Tucson, Arizona. I received the parts via U.S. postal service. The guy shipped the items quickly but I think he lives in Russia. Jerry
  5. Try this auction: https://www.ebay.com/sch/t4tex/m.html?item=153683761725&rt=nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562 Some good kits looking for a new home. Jerry
  6. Congratulations to the both of you. Great scenery for a wedding. I thought I saw Bigfoot lurking in the background in the third or fourth photo......
  7. Don't forget the bed liner. Don't want to scratch that fancy paint job. I remember when those were at the dealer. The local Chevy dealer wanted $25,000 for one. Still want one.
  8. The eyes are not what they used to be so 100% accuracy is not in my reach. Having said that, I'm convinced you could take any airplane out there and somehow magically reduce it to 1/32 size and enter it in a contest and people would still point out the inaccuracies of the "build". Jerry
  9. Got an extra $16,000 to spare! Check this out:https://www.ebay.com/itm/FG-1D-Corsair-Fine-Art-Models-Airplane-1-15-Bazan-Design-Limited-Edition-Kohs/143056901164?hash=item214edb142c:g:2OgAAOSw3BJcGUvD Don't know if I would buy one if I had the cash. Nice to look at. Jerry
  10. Don: I am new to this wip. I too built a P-38 and primered it like you did with gray color. But, I always use dupli-color gray primer from my local auto parts store. You can buy either the heavy fill which covers small defects or thin coat primer. It provides excellent adhesion and doesn't lift probably because of its auto application. Plus it provides an excellent surface for whatever your top coat color is. You might have to wetsand it with 1000 grit sandpaper again sourced from your local auto parts store. Your P-38 looks great and hopefully it won't take you a year like it did for me. Jerry
  11. Your aircraft looks very realistic. You would swear it was the real thing if not for that support in the exhaust. Well done!
  12. Didn't mean to implicate just Chinese sellers. Ripoff sellers are everywhere. In this case, the two sellers on ebay that are selling the Tamiya BT44B and the Model Factory Hiro Toleman are guilty as charged. There is no way you can sell either of these two kits legitimately for the prices indicated with the free shipping no less.
  13. Found a couple of other ebay listings too good to be true: 1.https://www.ebay.com/itm/tamiya-Brabham-BT44-car-kit-eBay/272899656085?hash=item3f8a164995:g:V38AAOSwYxBZ7vwS . This kit normally sells for about $60 US and up and is too big to be shipped free. 2. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Model-Factory-Hiro-Toleman-TG184-1-20-Kit-Monaco-GP-eBay/182864225458?hash=item2a938ea4b2:g:ryUAAOSwDFBZ9mC4 This kit normally sells for well over $200.00 US if you can find one. Both items are from Chinese sellers. Gotta educate yourself!
  14. That's a great model! You might want to know that the original model builders of the Falcon from back in the 70's used a couple of parts from a Tamiya 1/12 Ferrari F1 car for the front of the Falcon. They used the bottom of a flat 12 boxer engine for the front of each of the "claw" appendages. I believe they used many parts from various models of the time to decorate the model on the exterior surface. Not really noticeable on the Revell model but check out this photo reference: http://www.starshipmodeler.com/starwars/refpix/mosi/jl_mf_0190.jpg
  15. Thanks for the birthday wishes. My dad was right when he told me that the older you get the faster time flies by. I've still been trying to figure out how to slow it down without much success. I like the company here on largescaleplanes. How about a bourbon and coke or a bud light with lime flavor in honor of all the birthdays this 24th of June. Jerry
