    My hobby interests are all over the map, being particularly fond of aircraft from the WWII, Korean & Viet Nam war era timeframes. I also have a "thing" for the Century series jets, as well as the first generation of jets. I'm also a BIG fan of all the attack aircraft types, making for a rather substantial swath through history regarding military aviation in general that absorbs me. Also a WWI aviation buff, being particularly attracted to the Fokker Dr.I and D.VII. Recently I have developed a taste for Hellenic Air Force subjects, specifically the Mirage 2000 (what a beauty), F-4 Rhino and F-16 Viper.

    As is probably well known here by now, I'm also a major fan of the venerable Hawker Typhoon; what a splendid aircraft!

  1. Since this same video had just been posted a few days ago, I took the liberty of merging them.
  2. Scale Hobbyist now has the Das Werk kit as back ordered, so I think I'll treat myself to the Takom 1:16 Panzer IA instead, using some Christmas money that I've not yet spent.
  3. Very similar to what I have in mind for inside corner of the "L". I referred to mine above as disabled, as I'll be removing the casters from mine. It'll sit right between two upright leg corners of the "L", at a 45°, making it easily accessible from either inside leg of the benches.
  4. I love this. Real nice finish on the exterior.
  5. Unfortunately, I'm the same. I may start off with 8'x10', but I'll end up with six square inches of more or less clean work area.
  6. No photos, as I've yet to actually build it, but mine will be 8'x10' outside dimensions (L shape), using 3/4" plywood. It'll feature a built-in paint booth, hard ducted to the dryer vent/backdraft damper, several duplex receptacles, can lights above, swing-arm lamps on the bench proper, lots of storage shelves and parts drawers, storage beneath the rear third of the tops (tops will be 24" deep), a disabled rolling cabinet for sheet plastic and whatnot, shelf stereo system, computer monitor on swivel mount, keyboard beneath on a roll out tray. I'm also considering building in some book storage in one end so that I'll have references handy. My old layout, long gone now, and pretty small, compared to the behemoth that I've now got planned.
  7. Agreed, and I, for one, would love to see it. My own Das Werk kit is a few weeks off and I have no idea if I'll buy one of the others or not. Still, seeing both, side-by-side, would be most welcomed by me, and probably many others as well.
  8. A few goodies I recently acquired. First up, an Avionix 'pit set for my Czech Model F-80. Then a couple of books. I had the Kagero book, sold it, and have now bought another one, something that's all too common for me.
  9. I really can't say that I'm too jazzed about this choice, and will certainly not be getting one, but I'm happy for those of you that do like it.
  10. I don't model the regime, I model the aircraft. If we were to offer multiple options from all of the allied and axis countries, invariably my top five picks would be German, not because of any political or philosophical ideology, but because they're just so cool. Same with armor, offer me tons of options, and with the exception of a couple of choice Russian subjects, the overwhelming majority of my choices would be German.
  11. Really looking forward to the Hurricane kit. Thanks, Kev.
  12. Nice work, Dave. I'll look forward to seeing more. I'm currently having lots of fun working on my 1:16 Takom Panzer I.
  13. Looks like only MG 17 and MG 131 barrels (assuming this represents the full inventory).
  14. I don't believe PB is out of business at all.
  15. I'll eventually want one of each, but will probably grab the Hurricane first (assuming they're both available at the same time). I'm going to presume the Hurricane will be a fair bit cheaper, and that appeals to me a lot, as well as the fact that I'm looking forward to tackling the VVS scheme that I've pretty much settled on.
