  1. Ryan, Just got a note from my brother, SVSM is schedule to meet Sept. 17 at the Milpitas Police Department community room starting at 7:30PM. Masks are required. Eric
  2. Don't live in the area anymore but I know that last month they met at Game Kastle in San Jose on the 3rd Thursday. Spoke with my brother who reserves the room at the MPD and he said the first available date was in Sept. for the 3rd Friday. Eric
  3. There is Silicon Valley Scale Modelers in San Jose and Fremont Hornets in Fremont. Not sure of their meeting schedules right now, the last time I looked at the SVSM facebook page it hadn't been updated since last year. Eric
  4. The second page didn't bother me too much, might be a tad too blue. What about a more pale blue color. Eric
  5. When I've used it I added a dollop of white glue to the mix. It helped with adhering to the base. Eric
  6. Had to replace my decals from the kit. Polar lights sent me replacement sheet but I guess they up dated their decal sheet. I believe I've figured out where decals 49 go but have no clue where decal 45 is suppose to go. Does anyone have the instructions for the latest issue and can post or e-mail me a scan of the decal instructions. Thanks, Eric
  7. Just curious. I renew back in the beginning of November but as of today have not received a new card. I know things are messed up due to Covid but just want to make sure the payment went thru. Eric
  8. Very nice. What did you use for the snow on the vehicles? Eric
  9. Not really effecting me, just lowering the amount of stash I've got. But was wondering about how this is going to effect some of the websites I visit. Noted one saying that he was short $1500 of support money compared to last year. Wondering how many of the websites we visit won't be around next year. Eric
  10. Been looking for a source of 1/35 pots, pan and coffee pots either in plastic, resin or white metal. I've previously had used H & R metals but can't find anyone who carries the line. Did find their website but minimum order is $25 and I don't need that much stuff. Tried asking on an other forum and people have mentioned Miniart but their sets don't have what I'm looking for (plus the price to buy a set for one item is not practical). Didn't someone make a field kitchen kit in 1/35? If so, did it included pots and pans? Someone also mentioned some doll house stuff is close to 54mm size but it seems like all I can locate is 1/24 or larger doll house furnishings. Anyone know of a good source? Eric
  11. Thanks all. I drain the tank on my compressor after every use. I've got a 10 ft. section of hose to air my car's tire so maybe I'll install it then my trap before connecting to airbrush. Eric
  12. This is the second full summer since moving to Wisconsin. The last two weeks has seen temps in the 80's or better with humidity above 70%, long range forecast doesn't show any improvement . I know not to bother trying to airbrush when it's in the mid 80's and above but never dealt with humidity this high. How does humidity affect airbrushing? If it's about water from the compressor does installing a water trap inline fix the problem. Got 4 paint projects I'd like to move forward with but even if I try at 7 AM I'm still dealing with humidity in the 70 % or more. Thanks, Eric
  13. Thanks for the input about the base color for the ship. The color guide with the kit says to use Duck Egg Blue for the two large panel on the upper aft of the hull and for the large panel on the lower aft of the hull. From all the photos I can find it looks more of a bluish gray color not Duck Egg Blue. Maybe it should be the Intermediate Blue but that looks to Blue compared to what photos I've seen. Don't really want to mess around mixing paints, so wondered what anyone else used for these panels. Eric
  14. Having just primed my 1/1000 kit of the Reliant and looking it over for defects, I realized how deep the panel lines on the saucer section are and how deep they would be in actual size. Planning on using Polar Lights Aztec decal sheet and wondered how well the would work on the current surface. So even though it was suppose to be an easy project I now am thinking about filling the panel lines ( as the AMS Borg would say: Resistance is futile) So just wondering what other builders have done.
