  1. Yep, have a kit of the car in my avatar but until I can get a front valance for it (the kit doesn't come with it) I'll keep waiting!
  2. I think it turned out really well, especially that head on shot!
  3. Same here, ordered some parts from Eastern Europe on April 27th, shipped the 28th and they arrived at the USPS in Chicago on the 30th of April. Chicago is only two hours from me, but my parts are still sitting there since April 30th.
  4. Excellent choice! Okay, if you do build it AND are willing to part with the Jasta 6 markings, i know someone who would buy those from you if you're willing!
  5. I have been looking for that "Seven Swabians" sheet for ages, and at the prices they're selling for on Ebay I would say "Sell it!" And go buy yourself a nice car with the profits. But, if you decide to build it, and didn't plan on doing the "LUDE" scheme, I know someone who would HAPPILY buy the decals from that scheme from you!
  6. I also fixed MOST of the working features on my Tamiya builds save the movable propellers. Ailerons, flaps, cowl panels - all of them fixed on the A6M, Spitfire, and Mustang. DOn't remember any working features on the F4U.
  7. Agreed, your paint work and weathering is fantastic, bravo!
  8. Yes, I had one that came from the Netherlands that took two months to get to me here in the USA. It spent just over a month of that time sitting in Chicago. I have another one (also coming from the Netherlands) that has been sitting in Chicago since the end of April. I feel your pain!
  9. You poor man. I'll trade you all of my WNW kits for that beauty!
  10. If they did the Corsair in 1/24, I would seriously reconsider my avoidance of 1/24 subjects.
  11. Sigh... It's days like this I regret selling my factory original Lime Green 1970 Challenger R/T 440 six pack with pistol grip 4 speed...
  12. I also build RC, mostly 1/5 and 1/4 scale. Not so much stick and tissue as balsa and fabric.
  13. Brilliant work lain, even though you say you are learning new techniques you are making it look easy. Really enjoying your work!
  14. Great tip, thanks so much for posting it!
  15. Absolutely jaw dropping work here Peter, everytime I look in you are pushing the boundaries of scale modeling beyond what I ever thought possible. Also, didn't expect to see Solartex mentioned here, previously I had only seen that at the other forum I frequent.
  16. Bravo Tim, love your work on this one! Those temporary winter schemes are tough to pull off but you nailed it.
  17. Snowed here yesterday, weatherman calling for 3-6" of snow on Sunday.
  18. Wow, great photos Thomaz! Thank you so much, that's exactly what I was looking for.
  19. I am working on a P-38, and would like to try to replicate the patchy look on the OD where the sealing tape was applied for shipping them overseas. I have seen photos showing this effect, but I am not sure how much of the airframe was taped up like this. In the photo below, you can see where the tape was applied over the nose panels: My question is, was there was a standard way of doing it, or did it vary depending on who was taping the airframe? I have searched for a photo showing a fully taped aircraft or a diagram showing how much of the airplane was covered this way. If anyone can help, I would sure appreciate any help here! TIA!
  20. Hey Jennings! As much as I would love to support this sheet, I would have to pass on it. I have used many of your decal sheets (and have many more in the stash as they are AWESOME) but I would not choose any of the subjects on this sheet.
  21. Thanks for the clarification, very interested in some of these for myself!
