    The pearl effect on the scales is very nice. I'll have to remember it.

    Phantom of The Opera

    I'm not much for the garage kit genre, but you have done a remarkable job with this. Kudos.
  4. Coastal Kits is based in Lancashire, UK, and began marketing their own range of display bases at the end of 2012. Since that time, their business has grown and concentrates almost exclusively on printed display bases for just about any type of model you ever wanted to build in just about any scale. Looking thru the offerings on their website is almost overwhelming there are so many choices, and they will even custom-make bases. The display bases are manufactured from 3mm Foamex board, which feels like a rigid mousepad. The material is basically a waterproof plastic, with a printed display on one side. The pre-printed image is a high-quality image on a laminated, wipeable matt vinyl surface which, according to Coastal Kits will not raise or bubble like it was printed on paper. read more View the full article
  5. The tragedy of the Titanic sinking is legendary and needs no introduction. For those of us who are, or will build the 1/350 Minicraft Titanic kit, this mast set is a cause for celebration! I have personally had this ship kit half built and left for a good number of years. I had already scratch built many items to adorn the bridge, grand staircases, and other areas, as well as acquiring about every brass photo-etch set and even a wooden deck set. When I saw this Mast set show up for review, I had to have it and hopefully kick start my enthusiasm to finish this long drawn out build! Goodness knows how much grief I've gotten over the years from my wife and model buddies about when the Titanic will be finished! Master continues to build on their extensive offerings, and this brass mast set is every bit as spectacular as other Master Model brass and photo-etch sets I've had the pleasure of using. read more View the full article

    New Review: The Forgotten Dead

    This book describes Exercise Tiger, the rehearsal for the American D-Day landings on Utah Beach in Normandy. The training exercise occurred on the Devon and Dorset coasts of England around the village of Slapton Sands on April 27, 1944. Almost 1000 American soldiers and sailors died during the exercise, which was later covered up by officials embarrassed by the fiasco. This book describes the effort of author Ken Small to uncover the truth about the deaths of the soldiers and sailors and to ensure their sacrifice would never be forgotten. First published in 1988, the book has been updated and re-published in 2018. Chapter 1 The Forgotten Dead Describes the impact on the residents of Slapton Village both before and after the training exercise. Chapter 2 Exercise Tiger read more View the full article

    GT Resin Seamless Intakes

    My first question to you is: what did the instructions for these sets say or imply? Do they say "drop fit replacement" to the kit parts? If not, then surgery is at least implied, if not required. Second, ALL resin castings shrink to some degree, the only difference being how much. So, even if your parts are supposed to be a drop fit, I suggest you double check the fit as some minor adjustments may be needed. Between my friends who've used GT items and what I've read on the internet, it's a real toss up. Some of them fit remarkably well, while I know of people who've sworn off ever purchasing from GT again. Best of luck! GIL

    GT Resin Seamless Intakes

    I ordered a couple of GT Resin seamless intakes for Academy & ZM F-4's from Sprue Brothers. I know the Hasagawa version requires some surgery on the fuselage. Would like to hear pros & cons.

    1/72 Bridge Diorama

    A set of pulley wheels need brackets to hold them in place at the top of the towers. Used aluminium plate. The towers are not yet installed. Just checking to see how the wheels line up with the span cable anchoring points. Also, where I need to drill cable holes into the bridge. Checking how the bumper rollers are to the tower.

    Thanks for kind words. Here and there, I left out written explanations. Thinkingt that some photos ought to be somewhat self explanatory. Glad you like the build log so far.

    Greetings from Marietta, Georgia!

    Although it will be an extreme longshot that I make it to Chattanooga, I do hope someday to meet you at another Nationals. Welcome to these boards, feel free to post some pics of your work so many of us know what to look for in Chattanooga.

  16. I originally meant to split this into two parts but once I got started, I couldn't stop. So, let's finish off this magnificent kit. Last we left off, the airframe parts are together and ready for paint. read more View the full article

    TIE Experimental

    Agreed. IIRC I played the first TIE fighter game. Loved all the ships. I tried to get screen grabs with the hope of a clear view and maybe some scrathbuilding. Din't happen... 😉

    This is truly an impressive and ambitious build, and I can only echo the sentiments of earlier commenters. Thank you also for a detailed build log. Very inspirational

    USA Logo usage by chapters/members

    I think it refers to us making money off of the use of the logo. I don't think anyone is buying those books because our logo is in them somewhere and we're not charging for its use, so we should be ok. Ron

    USA Logo usage by chapters/members

    Ron, I can think of one situation where it wouldn't. In my Modelbuilding Guide E-books, I promote the IPMS/USA with a small blurb and a link to the IPMS/USA website. I do not use an image of the logo, but it would be nice if I could. However, from the above language, it appears that would be prohibited since the E-books carry a price. Can you get a clarification on that situation?
  23. Kevin, If Phil used his I-device.....you may NEVER see them!!! LOL

    TIE Experimental

    I used to play the various X-Wing and TIE fighter games. There were some pretty neat variants of the TIE fighter.

    USA Logo usage by chapters/members

    Here's the lawyers actual words: "The National organization owns the logo. It can grant use of the logo or withhold the right to use the logo as it sees fit. In order to avoid problems with our tax status, we should not grant permission to use it in a for profit enterprise. Traditionally, the National organization has allowed the chapters to use the logo to promote the local club and the national organization." Does that answer the question?

    USA Logo usage by chapters/members

    I'm going to have to defer to our legal eagle to get a ruling and get back to you. I don't want to use the wrong words and convey the wrong thing.
