    The order of my interests changes regularly between Aircraft 1/48,1/32,1/24;model cars,occasionallyarmorand ships.I also mess about with full size neat cars.<br> Come to think of it,I like all big boys toys. Been building models for more than 50 years.they sometimes turn out not too bad. Seeing all of the great models on this site is setting me up for more large scale A/C.I'm looking forward to the Fisher P anther I have ordered.

    Sky Type S Question

    I wish we could return to calling this great color SKY ,as it was always known. The S was added by the U.S manufacturer for a different compound of the color SKY. The same color Maybe somebody can add more info on this. the color is SKY. Let's not change history............cheers bigern

    Ultrasonic Cleaners?

    Forget the ultrasonic cleaner and just clean it the usual way. We definitely do not need another " gotta have it " gadget that rookies can't do without. Only my honest professional opinion.........cheers Ernie

    Next question in 1/48 scale

    Stephen is correct! Model discussions here should be 1/32 or larger. bigern

    Heretical thoughts and discussion

    I like ,and build ,all subjects in all scales. Digging through other sites can be a little much. Our site is specific and simple,with lots of darn nice folks. Leave it as it is. Cheers bigern (the good looking Ernie).

    14th Tempest Mk.VI 1/32 SH

  9. Gotta agree with " hooked for life". Seems to me that if I could afford this kit[also my favorite cat] I would be surprised initially,but would use my modeling skills to overcome any fixable faults and feel lucky that kit is on the market. As I am sure you will eventually. As they say S#$#*^T happens. bigern c

    Builders or just rivet counters?

    I agree fully of course; However in my case I have built and still am building some pretty decent models. But. And this is a big but .posting pics is something I have not done in years. Complex modeling I can handle ,but posting pics and computers seems to be a none starter........ Cheers big ern

    Revell, 1/32 Corsair

    The Revell Corsair is a great kit if you like and can handle the challenge upgrading and scratch building . I have many built with different levels of details added. Yes my stash contains a Tamiiya Corsair and Spitfire, truly beautifull kits, Too nice to cut up and hide all those detail parts! But from a few paces back a Revell version looks just as good to me .So,for a lot more modeling fun and a LOT less money I choose to go this route! Only my personal choice.. Have fun whatever your choice. Cheers big ern
