  1. I used to beat one up in A&P school. I mean, fix..... Rick L.
  2. Had that kit. Got the heebie jeebies about it and sold it. Some times I think I should have tackled it. Then I lay down and the urge to reaquire goes away. Too many like it in the stash already. That's a fantastic build. Very well done. Rick L.
  3. Thanks. I have the same deck for the South Dakota and may have to do likewise. Rick L.
  4. What did you wash the deck with? It's looking really good. Rick L.
  5. Touchdown! Or..... Gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool! Depending on your continent. Rick L.
  6. My reputation precedes me, I see. Rick L.
  7. Thanks Gil. Model Master enamels. Russian Topside Green base coat, followed by the same cut with equal parts yellow and white for the faded green look. Bottom is Russian Underside Blue over some black preshade lines. Rick L.
  8. Nuts. Would not have thought WEM would go. Rick L.
  9. 1/48 Eduard I-16 type 24, Weekend edition. Only took 4 weekends. : :) Rick L.
  10. Quickboost is just fine. But since you've come all this way with all this brass, you need Master Model brass barrels. Well, need may be the wrong word. Would really be cool though. Rick L.
  11. Better get it finished up. You know SAC loves to spring an ORI at any time. Rick L.
  12. The photo is Interior Green. MM 1715/FS34151 Rick L.
  13. I keep hearing Euro I Dark Green 34092. Used it on a 1/72 Thunderbolt and thought it was OK. I can't vouch for its authenticity though. Nor do I get too hung up on it. Rick L.
  14. That's super nice! Gem of a kit, and your conversion work just makes it better. Starfighter is good stuff. Well done! Rick L.
  15. My ebay buy of the month: A Monogram 1/48 P-61 in a beat up box and a Trumpeter 1/700 USS New Jersey. $8. $10 for shipping which is reasonable for a 1/48 Black Widow. Rick L.
  16. Awesome as usual, Chris! I think the water is fine. Odd observation: with all those planes parked forward blocking the wind over the bow, was there any dead air on deck to fly into when landing in those circumstances? Another reason I would rather be the first to land, not the last. Rick L.
  17. Any recommendations? Any tutorials on making water and adding ships? Rick L.
  18. Been reading the. "Bloody Shambles" books (Fall of Malaysia and Singapore) which has led to the purchase of a 1/48 Tamiya Buffalo and a 1/700 scale Force Z. Trumpeter Repulse and Tamiya Prince of Wales. I'd rather have them in 1/350 but the Spruemeister Purchasing office opted for the lower priced, more available micro floaty things. Rick L.
  19. Chris, this is some of the best work I've seen you do. You need to not care more often. Seems to be working. Rick L.
  20. A free Jim Deck workbench makeover? Sign me up. Rick L.
  21. Superb Supermarine! You certainly do have skill there. And having fun is a major bonus. Well done! I did not know Spitfires had hydraulic controls. Then again, I don't know one mark from another. Never been my area I guess. I'll have to change that. Rick L.
