  1. Alain: Yes, I want to build the prototype. I am assuming it wasn't armed yet. Good idea with the 262 panel! D: I know the Hasegawa kits would be easier. But I have a stack of these old Revell kits. I have to consume them somehow! :-)
  2. I am interested in any refs for the Me-109Z. All of my refs are drawings or rendered images. My library does not contain any images of the actual airframe. So, I don't know how complete it was at the time it was destroyed. I'm basing my Z off a pair of old Revell 109Fs that I had languishing in the model crypt. It is sort of a slammer/kitbash/scratchbuild project. I think the only mods I will do to the plastic is to delete the wheel well bulges on the upper wing surface. Otherwise I will leave it the same. Oh! I will delete all armaments and fill in the blast tunnels in the noses. I may attempt to busy up the already cramped cockpit with more gauges and controls. The engine management system would have doubled. Any ideas? Brent
  3. Yep! Larry's is inspirational. I see someone made a 1/15 scratchbuilt RC model. I'm going to reach out to see if they will share their files. I can scale them down and laser-cut my own formers.
  4. "BTW Brent, It was nice meeting you in Windsor Locks a few weeks ago when Rick bought that pile of kits from you" I agree! I hope you and the gang enjoy them.
  5. Howdy Gang! It's Sunday and I am dreaming of scratchbuild projects. I don't have a good source of plans for the XB-42 Mixmaster. Does anyone have a source? Thanks! Brent
  6. Howdy, I have a pile of old 1/32 Me-109s. I'm considering hacking them up into a accurate-ish Me-109Z V-1. Before I go to the trouble and frustration is there a conversion out there? It seems like there ought to be. However, I cannot find it. Any help? Brent
  7. Howdy Gang, I'm looking to close up my He-111Z soon. I've been agonizing about the bombardier's pad. Has anyone ever seen a real one? It looks like they were brownish or black. I know, who cares, it's my model do it however I want... This is pretty obvious thru the glazing and I'd like to do it as accurate as possible. (OCD much?) :-) Thank you!
  8. Anybody scan or otherwise save the profiles from decal sheets? Eaglecals are great just for the artwork. I wish Jerry would sell me a CD of just his profiles. I understand "caretervention" is scheduled to discuss my digital hoarding.
  9. "I'd also venture to say that roughly 95% of what I download, never gets used for anything." I agree. A lot of the stuff I have saved is because if I ever want to find it I will know where to look. Mine is organized by country and model. So, I can usually find what I'm looking for. ß!
  10. So, he could have driven one of these trucks. There weren't that many "jets" being trucked around. Very interesting!
  11. This is one of my favorites. I very much need to model at least one truck & Komet combo. Someone else did here (smaller scale though)... http://hawkeyes-squawkbox.com/2009/08/25/after-action-report-ipms-national-convention-pt-iii/
  12. No, I mean "cost" as in lost or cannot get back. I will link to some image, then find a few more. Instead of getting off my duff to go snowblow I'm dinking on the PC saving images... :-)
  13. Howdy Gang, I don't know where my old thread went. So, I will restart it. It's tough displaying some of these large models so I look for alternative ways. One of my solutions is to show the model in transport. I like seeing them out of context. They are easier to display with the wings off. The display is more interesting because it is on a flatbed trailer or something. Anyhoo, let's start this again.
  14. A little tip to other hoarders out there. Hover over an image you like and hold S+right click. Google will perform a search for similar images. That has cost me quite a few hours...
