    This one kid I grew up with, she built a “Visible Man” and then painted the body. Her family still won’t say her name. Real shame, she was a great kid.

    When you remade the windshield, did you have to form the plastic, or was a section of the bottle the right shape?
     
    Brilliant stuff, that AB work is amazing!

    Ditto! I really like what you did with "Blue 9", and from the looks of things so far I think "Blue 38" will be a real knockout! I'll be watching this space for more progress reports.

    Daywalker reacted to chrish in Matchbox 1/72 (completely imaginary DHC-6 800 stretched twin otter)   
    Built from 2 matchbox kits, (OK, yes that is kind of obvious) two fuselages spliced and glued together and, span added to the main wings. Main wheels from a resin upgrade set for a 1/48 PBY. Plunge formed windshield and clear tape for side windows. new props from .010 sheet and 1/4" added to the engine nacelles (to line up with the ice shields)Livery realized with masking tape and Frisket film except for the registrations which are decals.
    Again, completely imaginary. 

     

     

     

     

     
     

     

    And with an original size kit just to show the change

    The idea under construction;

    Thanks for looking!

    This kit from ICM is a very nice kit. My first attempt at rigging and second attempt at painting a wooden prop. This is built for IPMS USA review which should be posted in May 2021.

    Just had an email from GWH.  The engine will be able to be built and displayed on the engine stand as shown in the photos, separate from the aircraft, which will have parts for the exhausts and other stuff needed to show the cowling buttoned up!

    I hate to say it but this was kind of brought upon themselves by the poor business decisions they made (IMHO). I WAS a customer for some time before going to other options who could better fill my needs.
     
    Still sad.

    Daywalker reacted to tomp. in A good read, and some great photos   
    Great article and photos. My experiences in Wis were in the 60s & 70s seeing B 52s from K I Sawyer flying at treetop level, first you would hear the roar that military jets make, a brief glance overhead. The other area was from the palisades at the junction of the Wisconsin & Mississippi rivers when the planes would fly below the ridge and you would look down on F 102s. Same roar and brief glance. Most recent example was in the early 2000s. Heard the roar in Sheboygan Wi and turned out to be a B 2 flying quite low, looked to be about 500 ft. By then you could look up things on the internet, I read that the B 2 was returning from a shoe in Michigan.

    Daywalker got a reaction from MARU5137 in HGW Model Shipping time to US   
    Hopefully it didn't arrive in Chicago, packages from overseas can sit there for months before they get to it. I had one from the Netherlands last year that sat in Chicago for a few months, have one as we speak sitting there since Feb 4th.

    Daywalker reacted to Jennings Heilig in HGW Model Shipping time to US   
    There's really nothing you can do but wait.  Scanning, especially once in the USPS system, is essentially useless in many cases these days.  I've had stuff arrive unannounced and unscanned after it left the origin country.  Other things get scanned multiple times.  There's no rhyme or reason to it.  The USPS is broken and needs a serious top down overhaul.

    Daywalker reacted to kensar in Another one in the books - Scratchbuilt Avro 504 1/32   
    Completed after 6 months - my Avro 504.  This model depicts Avro 504, number 398, as flown by CW Wilson and Rabagliatti on August 25, 1914, when Rabagliatti shot down a German Taube with his rifle, while kneeling in the front seat, to claim the RFC's first air to air victory.
    I have used a Taurus Oberursel U.0, converted to a Gnome Lambda engine, a Copper State Models pilot figure, Airscale and Archer transfers, and a few Gaspatch turnbuckles.  Everything else is made from elemental shapes of styrene, wood, and metal.  There is a build thread here:  
     
    I also have a more detailed build log on WW1aircraftmodels website in the scratchbuilt section.
     
    On to the pictures...

    A 1/6 resin kit, a bit of a break from the usual. I deleted the "bat wings" and added a flowing/blowing cape type thing from offset printing press foil. A wood stir stick for the spear handle, annealed wire for the thumb rings and necklace.  Painted with Vallejo acrylics, Tamiya acrylics, some oils and Alclad lacquer for the metal bits, my 6th figure build.

    Nice kits, but I have to say that I prefer the ICM version. I’m a little surprised, however, that no one has produced AM decals for it. My only complaint!
