  3. A-4 Skyhawk Tailpipe

    Can anybody confirm whether the A-4E/F had turkey feathers inside the tailpipe or not? The Hasagawa kit pipe doesn't have them nor does the Steel Beach Accessories Super Foxtrot Update kit have them. The Eduard A-4 Exhaust kit has them. I have a number of photos that show most of the tail end of a Scooter but, the inside of tailpipe is partially obscured.

  8. Registration

    Pete, The receipt is your confirmation of registration. I get a copy of your registration, minus the credit card info, and that's what I use to enter the member in the system. Since I have to manually enter the information for the Registration System, I'm not going to send the 300+ emails for confirmation that you've already received. If there's a problem, I do contact the member, such as the one who registered for the ATK tour, but didn't register for the convention. Jim Pearsall Regsitrar, 2018 Convention

  11. Inside of F-16 exhaust nozzle

    Thanks for the tips.
  12. Inside of F-16 exhaust nozzle

    That whitish area is actually a ceramic coating, which then gets stained black and brown. Ralph's method should work perfectly! GIL
  13. Kuznetsov Trumpeter 1/700

    Hello friends, here I bring you the flagship of the Russian Navy, the aircraft carrier Kuznetsov. It is of the brand Trumpeter at scale 1/700 which comes very well detailed. I really liked to make this model for all the details that have been possible. https://youtu.be/aCEIS_ukdSk Greetings and I hope you like it
  14. Inside of F-16 exhaust nozzle

    I've painted the liner white or light gray, then dusted with dark gray and black pastel, depending how "used" I want it to appear.
  15. Noel, Keep in mind that NASCAR/Stock Car Racing is very big in the U.S., particularly the Southern U.S. It is not uncommon to see an attendance of 200,000 or more at some of the larger tracks, such as Texas Motor Speedway here in Fort Worth, Texas. And let's not forget the Indianapolis 500 in Indianapolis, Indiana, though that event has nothing to do with stock cars. That kind of following helps support print publications that focus on automotive models. Still, print publications of all kinds are bucking a stiff headwind as a result of the digital revolution. Some are surviving and even thriving, such as FSM, while many others are hanging on by their teeth if they continue to exist at all.
  16. Model Cars Magazine? Will it Survive?

    Hi Robin Auto Modeling is much bigger in the USA than in the UK, so oK guess that is the reason for your observation about car modelling magazines stateside. Over here in the UK out main street outlet W H Smith (equivalent to your Barnes and Noble?) Has a monthly plethora of mainly aircraft modelling mags followed closely with military then boats and model engineering mags but no auto modelling mags whatsoever. They carry Airfix, Tamiya and FSM that may have auto related modelling articles within the rest of their content. A couple of auto modelling magazines of UK origin came and went after short publication runs. I guess that this simply reflects the model making habits of each of our two nations in general.
  17. Long range Spitfire

    Right....the judges'll deduct points for that.
  18. Long range Spitfire

    Awaiting for Eduard's IXc. Also, got some interesting KITS World decals for this bird. Will need to rob some bomb racks are tear drop drop tanks from Tamiya's P -51. Evidently, the US obtained 2 aircraft from the Brits for long range experiments that flew out of Wright field. I think the aircraft were only used for experiments. Hopefully, I will will have this model built in a month or two. the left tire looks a little flat to me. This is the plane without the nose art.
  19. Thanks, that's all I wanted to know. It todays world of e-commerce, I have somewhat become accustomed to multiple follow up emails when purchasing something. If that is the process then I'm good with it. Not trying to make extra work for anyone. Thank you.
  20. electronic registration

    Pete, You should receive a receipt from the shopping cart system when you complete your transaction. As Jim said, that will function as your confirmation since Jim uses an electronic copy of that (minus your payment method information) to enter you into the registration system. If your information is correct on that receipt, it should be correct in Jim's registration system. If it is still a concern, I can get with Jim and do what I can to allay that concern. Steve
  21. Shapeways

    I have yet to use some 3D printer plastic that I purchased from Shapeways. So 1/48 details for aircraft and some 1/350 details for US aircraft carrier hanger bays. What type of glue would be recommended. I do not thick the plastic is styrene? So, CA glue should probably be used. To those who are not aware of this site, Shapeways sells items produced on 3D printers. The sites has all kinds of items for sale. For example, when in the site, type 1/48 for the search. Just bought this tonight.
  22. Inside of F-16 exhaust nozzle

    I have a question. I have a 1/48 scale F-16 that I plan on someday to build. I noticed that F-16s and other jets have a whitish color on the inside of the nozzle. How should I paint the inside of the nozzle to reproduce this color? Dry brush with white paint?

  24. Wings Pallet

    Thank-you for the heads up.
  25. Last week
  26. 1/48 Academy F-4B

    One seat completed. It takes some time to build. Add details, paint add more details. You can see and follow the build on my blog at https://davidsscalemodels.com/build-log/1-48-academy-f-4b-vf-111/
  27. Wings Pallet

    The site has been around for quite awhile. The biggest problem is that all the profiles come from various books and websites, and many are of rather dubious accuracy. You can find some interesting stuff there, but I wouldn't use it as any kind of definitive reference. Steve N IPMS #30925
  28. Model Cars Magazine? Will it Survive?

    To me it seems like car modeling magazines are more common than armor or aircraft.
  29. Links to Specific Decals Part 1- 48-053 http://www.lifelikedecals.sakura.ne.jp/48053.htm Part 3- 48-055 http://www.lifelikedecals.sakura.ne.jp/480553.htm Last year we modelers were pleasantly surprised (at least I was) to get not one, but two companies offering new-mold 1/48 scale A5M Claudes (in multiple variants no less). With the models from Fine Molds and Wingsy Kits both receiving admirable reviews, it is great to see that Lifelike Decals has issued 3 decal sheets that work with either kit. This is a review of 2 of the three, #48-053 (Part 1) and #48-055 (Part 3) Once again, Lifelike has come up with an extremely high-quality product. Each package has full-color placement guides, and multiple sheets of decals (2 in Part 1, and 3 in Part 3). All are printed by Microscale and are to their typically high standard. Glossy finish, minimal carrier, and thin. Between these two sheets, the modeler has no less than 25 schemes to choose from! And Part 2 offers another 13 schemes! read more View the full article
