    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. I did something tonight that I had really dreaded doing, scribing the fender join lines on my Willlys. Once I figured out what to use as a straightedge, it was actually a snap. They still need to be cleaned up, but they are actually very straight right now. I'm a happy guy.
  2. With hood opening now widened a tad (roughly 1/8"), blower and scoop fit just fine. Now I've noticed that the headers hit the fender well inserts, so those will now need to be "adjusted" as well. There's also a bit of crud stuck inside the scoop opening, but I'll get rid of that shortly enough.
  3. I just acquired this in a swap for a car model that I bought rather compulsively, but really had no use for at all. I have about four of these kits right now, and will be adding more as well. It still annoys me no end that I had to pass on a fabulous opportunity to pick up a cherry '70 R/T convertible many years ago. That car, a numbers matching R/T convertible with a 440 Magnum, would be worth roughly $60,000 to $80,000 right now. I still can't believe I didn't buy it.
  4. I've seen the Minicraft kit done up as it looks on the ocean floor. Pretty spooky thinking of it sitting down there in the cold blackness.
  5. It certainly was, after the collision that ripped a huge hole in her.
  6. Good news for me then; I really don't care about wheel wells anyway.
  7. They're really not what I wanted, just what I ended up stuck with. I still may have to remove a pin mark near the bottom that I hadn't noticed until I painted them. Thanks for looking in, Joe.
  8. I was finally able to find some of my Tamiya semi gloss acrylic clear, so spritzed the seats to give more of a sheen to them. I had to washout the photo with a flash, just to show them at all. They actually look much better in person.
  9. A gift from a good pal. I've had a "thing" for Century series aircraft for quite a long while now, so this really fills the bill. It's not in the database either, so I'll be adding it shortly.
  10. I doubt the molds are scrapped, more likely they're just adjusted.
