    Daywalker reacted to AlbertD in 1/48 Tamiya P-38H out..   
    I picked up the F/G version when they first came out. It looks like a great kit but I'll hold off on another Tamiya P-38 unless they do a J version.

    Special Hobby's 1/32nd scale North American X15 A2
    Apart from a few scratch built additions in the cockpit, and a pilot figure from Shapeways (3D printed), it is an out of the box build.
    Various shades of black, dark greys, and metallic tones from various manufactures.











    Shapeways X-15 pilot.
    3D printed.
    The version I ordered was the "basic quality" one & higher quality versions are available, for an increased cost.
    This one was rough, but workable.
    Head/face replaced with a Hornet Heads resin item.
    He needed some adjustments to get a better fit in the chair & cockpit. 

    Thanks for looking,

    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!

    Daywalker reacted to chuck540z3 in What happens to our models after?   
    Very good question- and very well written as well.  Some of my models took me 300-400 hours to build- each- so it would bother me if they were just trashed after I'm gone.  Having said that, for most of us, what happens after we're gone shouldn't really matter, because we're gone, finished, perished, croaked, and have generally kicked the bucket.  Why should we care then?
    I'm pretty sure my son and son-in-law will want a couple of them (and maybe a few grand kids later), which leaves about a dozen that will need a home, or the garbage can.  Should I be given sufficient warning about my ultimate demise, I will either sell them or give them away to someone or some entity, like a military museum, that will likely appreciate them and extend their life span.   Nothing lasts forever anyway.  These painstakingly assembled and painted plastic aircraft have given me enough joy that it doesn't really matter if they do wind up in a garbage can.  They have served their purpose very, very well.

    My plan is to live until I build every last kit in my stash. Let's see, 300 years should about do. After that I guess they will end up in a land fill.

    Meh. So after all 30 pages of speculation it turns out not to be a new kit, but rather a small part of an existing kit.

    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.

    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.

    Daywalker reacted to karimb in CSM Nieuport XVII Early, Matton   
    Haven't posted anything on LSP in a while as i have been using a different platform of late, so hello again!
    First go at a CSM kit and i am happy to say they are very well designed. All paints either a mix of Tamiya or simply MRP colors. Wood is all brush painted using Tamiya paints thinned with MLT and using Tamiya retarder to minimize the brush strokes. All markings custom masks. Weathering with AMMO products and pigments, pencils for some of the chipping and Abteilung oils. Turnbuckles by gaspatch and of course the tubing is all from Bob's Buckles

    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.

    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!

    Daywalker reacted to James Rademaker in Shipping from the US to Europe (or vice versa)   
    I can tell you from experience that the post office system in Chicago is one of the worst in the US. I have a son who lives there and when we send even a birthday card it’s sent two weeks in advance so he gets it on time or it’s late. Some items sent were never received and lost forever in that system. Good luck.
