  1. Wow that is magnificent! That is a brilliant idea hiding the battery inside the cart! Took me completely by surprise.

  2. This is another throw back kit from Fantastic Plastic that I dug deep into my stash to pull out. The date on the instructions says 2008! It's been out of production since 2011, but if you pay attention to the site, older models can come back for a brief engagement at any time. The LRV from FP's site: For a simple kit this one fought me every step of the way. The worst being the painting gods were tricksters watching me paint this, despite it just being black and white. Painting the black, I left it to dry, then turning it over to paint the white, I discovered a nic on the black.

  4. This weekly update for the A-10 Thunderbolt II covers the power cart and most of the weapons. So the Hasegawa accessory kit came with two carts. The A/M32A-60A generator and a TTU-228/E Hydraulic test stand. I used the TTU-228 as it was large enough to hold the 9V battery. The cart was detailed with the wires and hoses that came with the kit.

  5. Michael, I did not specifically state that Testors moves regarding Floquil and Pactra was the result of regulation requirements. What I said...or at least meant to say...was that regulations were one of the factors that could and in some cases did cause a change in a product. I was told by one person at Testors some years ago that they were being required to utilize a multilevel label on their paints in order to print all the required warnings. You know the kind I'm talking about...the back label peels up from one side, expanding the available space for warnings and instructions. My c

  6. Noel, Never mind evolution. The simple fact is that certain types of paint work best for specific results. Granted, every modeler has their preferences, but my previous statement still holds true. And consider this: Since enamels and even lacquers are vanishing because "they smell", "they're dangerous", "they cause cancer", "they damage the environment", etc, what happens when they're no longer around and it's discovered that acrylics of all varieties are also dangerous, damaging, etc? What do we use then? Water color? Will we adapt? Yeah, you're right. We will, but that does

  7. With the enamel sources drying up, I really wish Tamiya would start importing their little square bottles of enamels. I managed to get a few out of Japan and they are as good as their acrylics and lacquers. Between their newer jars of lacquer, if they brought in the enamels they would have the model paint market covered.
