  1. Does anybody know what the black stain along a Demon's fuselage is from?
  2. I've been searching for a display case that can hold multiple models at a fair price, but haven't found any, and I don't have the time or money to construct one? Any advice would be of help,
  3. When you say paint the entire keel you mean the underside of the elevators, or the metallic area surrounding the nozzles? In my opinion, using the airbrush to paint the transition area, just paint a small line without any tape, to not make any hard edges, so it appears to transition from dark to light?
  4. I was looking at the july 05 edition of fine scale modeler, and saw an article on backdating a phantom to a B model. There was a caption saying the smoke stains were airbrushed on to the underside of the elevators. When I looked at them they didn't have a hard edge, of where the stain ended, but rather a transition from stain to paint. How would you paint that area so it does appear to transition and not end completely?
  5. That is Jaw Dropping Gil. Nice Work! :o
  6. I had thought of using those but didn't knwo how effective they'd be in holding the thin line
  7. I recently dug out an old Dragon 1/700 Nimitz that I built a long time ago, and looked over it. I've been reluctant to build carriers but am thinking of starting one. Does anybody sell an accessory aircraft kit of today's naval aircraft, such as super hornets, hornets, etc...? Most of the carriers I see come with 1980-90s aircraft.
  8. Thanks for the advice I'll look at the items micromark has
  9. WOW! Didn't know about that Mark, thanks for the link. Don't want to put too many aftermarket items into it though. From what I can tell getting experience with rigging just comes down to making a few mistakes to learn from and do better?
  10. I have a Constitution model that is partially started, I believe it is. the Revell kit, don't quote me on that. I have wanted to finish it forever, but what drives me crazy is the rigging. I have no experience with small threading and tying knots. Is there any way to use plastic rigging instead? The threads are so small I can barely keep them in my hand, let alone tie a knot. I can picture her finished looking beautiful if only I could have a different way to add the rigging. Now maybe the long lines going from one mast to another i could just glue. But the small ones are the problematic ones. Is there any aftermarket or tricks to avoiding or using different materials for the rigging?
  11. I'm using a 1/48 Revell F/A-18A Blue Angel kit to build a Navy agressor, but the problem is the wings are molded with the flaps up. I'm trying to construct it with them down, the only way I see to do that is to cut them out of the wings and glue them back on. However that leaves a large gap of where the second part of the flaps would be, so it wouldn't look very smooth. Is there any other way to change the wing so the flaps are down and not flush?
  12. Hadn't thought of doing the half and half idea. thanks Dave
  13. I forgot, I have a 1/48 Phantom and trying to make the decals to avoid having to buy some.
  14. I'm trying to make a VF-111 sharks mouth decal. The problem I have is that the mouth goes on a double curve the radome and the IR sensor below. How can I construct it so it will fit on both curves equally?
  15. Looks great Keith! I have the same kit, how well did it go together?
  16. Thanks, happy to help! ;)
  17. Oh, thanks anyway Mark. i'll keep my eyes out.
  18. I'm looking for a resin cockpit for the 1/48 revell F-4C/D, but can't find any. I see hasegawa makes them but I don't know if that would work for the revell kit?
  19. What are the official FS colors for jdams and paveways?
  20. I put another coat of future on and that took care of it, thanks!
