    Alclad vs. AK xtreme metal and true metal

    Altin: Couple differences- primary one is AlClad is a lacquer and AK is enamel. AlClad requires a base coat (I use Tamiya Gloss black) for all colors while the enamel needs no base coat except for the high shine colors like chrome. For either, prep work on the plastic is critical. Both can produce great looking kits. I can say that AlClad, especially the Chrome and the like can be a little delicate for handling but I do not know if AK is the same Dave

    Very sad. Always loved the conversations at the nationals and he was a true help to IPMS not only in Orange County but Nationally also. As you said, not unexpected but still very sad. Dave

    GT Resin Seamless Intakes

    John: Why not try going back to Gary. He is a modeler too so he may still replace them. Dave

    GT Resin Seamless Intakes

    John: Have you tried contacting them and letting them know? If you are not even giving them a chance to make it right, your statement is not really valid. My GT resin parts are perfect and I have them for the A-10, F-4 and F-105- all with no casting issues. Dave

    Bid Meeting

    FWIW, one reason that the board wanted to go multiple years was that, as a former board member, it was gut wrenching to have three good bids in one year and only pick one. Groups spent a lot of time preparing them and rejecting good bids was really tough. I do like the idea of planning out further too Dave

    3-D printed models prohibited?

    Dave Must say I disagree on the bust. It takes as much skill to use a sculpting program such as Zbrush and get the figure right, printed correctly and then cast, built and painted as it does to sculpt one from clay. Great series of articles in Amazing Figure Modeler on the whole subject the last 2-3 issues. Really digs into the issue Dave
