    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!

    Tapered round diamond needle files - WTH??

    Actually they do, though perhaps not specifically what you seek. 10 piece diamond reamers 3 piece diamond reamers

    One thing is certain, the zimm on a Panther does not necessarily have to be really neat.

    Make the others jealous

    While I'm not terribly familiar with that particular publisher, they do sound interesting. (I do have their book on the Do 17 in Yugoslav service.)

    Tapered round diamond needle files - WTH??

    That looks sort of like a step drill; same concept anyway.

    Spitfire Floatplane

    I considered doing something similar with the 1:24 Trumpeter kit, but for all the strange reasons not to, I just don't like the floats; same story with the Seiran.

    Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24J - Initial Observations

    I agree; it's certainly not a deal breaker by any means, just seems like a poor approach for them to take.

    OK, no joy. While I do tend to photograph all of my model stuff, after numerous file transfers and at least one failed 1TB HDD, I apparently no longer have them handy. All I can say is that the process worked just wonderfully for me.

    In my case, I didn't press the iron into the surface, but rather dragged it (tip down) horizontally across the surface. I'll see if I can dig up a photo of one of them.

    Hobby Boss 1/32 B-24J - Initial Observations

    To me the biggest letdown are the overly simplified engines. Not that I'm an exposed engine sort of guy, but it just looks like a cheapskate way to deal with them in this big scale.

    Good grief, Lud, it looks like Christmas arrived early at your place.

    Dragon's Sturmpanzer IV- 15/Dec/18

    It may be quite a while before I attempt it again, and the Jagdtiger and Tiger kits I did it on, are long gone, as are almost all of my other finished kits, unfortunately. I don't really recall where I heard the idea, to be quite honest. Any boo-boos can just be sanded away, then redone with the soldering iron. As I recall, once the rheostat was properly set, it went rather smoothly and pretty darned fast too.
