    Your added detail work is outstanding! Great job overall.
  2. Buy some and try it with model glue to see how it works.

    Hobbyboss B-24: no turret fix in sight

    My attempts at building in general turn out like that.

    F4K/M Phantom Conversion Thoughts

    Just like painting a car. All the hard work goes on long before the paint goes into the paint gun.

    Hobbyboss B-24: no turret fix in sight

    YES! I’ve got the kit. Not sure if it was Moebius that had the globe produced or Monsters in Motion. When I first opened it up, it was so light and thin I thought it was plastic.

    Hobbyboss B-24: no turret fix in sight

    A few years back one of the sify kit maker put out the Lost In Space robot. His “head” came as a clear plastic clamshell design with a huge nasty seam right through the middle of it. Like the nose turrets. A few years later they announced a true glass blown “head” to replace the nasty seamed part. It took about a year for it to come out, but it was damned well worth it. And it was only $10. I think it was Monsters In Motion. Maybe someone with pull in the hobby could reach out to them for a similar product? Just smooth class would be fine, since you could use aluminum tape to replicate the sheet metal and framework.

    1/32 F-4K/M. Conversion Set for Tamiya F-4J

    Thanks Chek. Just looked at the build thread. Yea, I’ll wait for an IM kit. This conversion would be as extensive at Paul Fishers fat faced Skyraider kits. But a little larger!

    Surprising delivery ...

    Only photos I've seen from USPS is the arrival pics I get daily from my Informed Delivery email, which BTW, just showed up as I was typing this out! Amazon delivery OTOH, does show porch photos. I've gotten a few from them. My Informed Delivery is very hit and miss. Will not show pics of packages, just envelopes that go through the processing machines and sometimes not all of them.

    1/32 F-4K/M. Conversion Set for Tamiya F-4J

    OK, is there a web page that shows exactly what is different between the Brit Phantom vs. say a J model? Maybe a scratch build article? Article on the CE kit showing all parts and pieces? I'm in for an IM kit, but reading bits and pieces about making the fuse wider, etc sounds a little intimidating.

    Sorry, but not me. Breaks my limit of sanity to income ratio. Even HpH kits are out of my league.

    F-16 Aggressor - Forest Green

    Isn't the landing gear and gear door different between the Block 30 and the CJ kit? I'm digging deep into my memory banks, but I think the 30 has the lighter landing gear and non-bulged gear doors?

    Don’t think Tamiya will be any help since the Thunderbird parts were bought up years ago. Might be some aftermarket to provide what you need. Block 30 is the larger GE intake, isn’t it? T-Bird is a Block 32.

    Another LHS closing...sign of the times

    Mine packed up and moved across town a few months back. Kind of logistically makes sense seeing how they were the only game in town, they were a good 15-20 miles out of the central area. New location puts them in the middle of all the suburbs of Columbia and Lexington. They never were big on stocking kits I build, but I did drop a lot of coin on paints, glue and other supplies. I guess I need to make a shopping list and take the drive across town. Then again, paying $8-$10 for shipping is better than eating up a few hours and gas money for a 40 mile round trip.

    Real space kits

    Sorry about that! Shuttle is the 1/72 Revell kit. Saturn 5 is the 1/72 Dragon kit. Thunderbirds are the old Revell 1/32 F-16N kits with Tamiya decals.

    Looks like the Revell Super Hornet is out

    I'm convinced the black paint throws off the perspective, but even though, the kit looks a little wide and edges not rounded off enough to my eye.
