  1. Well … Kyle has restarted his work on my USS ESSEX, CV-9 in her 1944 configuration. He has painted the hull … this is what he has said … “I ordered some liquid masking on Sunday, to start to tackle the Essex color scheme, will keep you updated I’d like to get back on it soon. A little touch up to do where lines of tape overlapped each other but nothing too bad. Next up will be getting the armament and other little parts in and masking and painting the island.” Here some photos of the build … IMG_6558 by Tim Connelly, on Flickr
  2. Thanks Kevin. Yeah, a couple of weeks ago, I "buy it now-ed" a sheet off Ebay.
  3. Howdy-Doo Guys, Hey, I just ordered a 1:72 HOBBYBOSS F-86 off Amazon. It comes with German markings. Can anyone direct me to a sheet for USAF Sabres? Ciao Bella
  4. OK, thanks Tim. Could I have Kyle modify seats meant for a F-4E to look like those?
  5. What model ejection seat was fitted to the F-5Es?
  6. Hi … Some of you have been asking me what Kyle Lord has been doing on my USS ESSEX model that I bought from Art Rohloff via STEELNAVY last year. Kyle bought a house late last year and he finished four plane kits for me, a T-33, F-106A, a F4-U1D and a repair job on a Sea Hurricane MK. IIc. Last week, he got back to work on my USS ESSEX again. He started by gluing the missing pieces onto the bow and stern. A few more pieces to go then the deck can go on pretty soon. I also plan to progress on the island. He also attached the gun emplacements onto the deck. I also got 3 out of
  7. Hi … Does anyone know if there is a decal sheet in 1:72 for a P-51B named "Peg'o'My Heart"?
  8. Wild Bill, I am THINKING about having Kyle do that ...............................

  10. Ed Sexton of Revell sent me the parts for the new 1:72 PT-109 kit, and these are my impressions of it. A disclaimer, these are just my impressions of it, take them in the spirit in which they're offered. This isn’t your father’s or your grandfather’s PT-109 from the 1960s. This is an all new tooled kit. The hull now comes in three pieces, the two sides of the hull and the bottom of the hull, rather than the one-piece hull from the original 1960s-vintage kit. The deck does not have the rather over-done engraved planking which the original kit featured. In fact, the new deck piece is total
  11. Hi Guys, Hey, listen, ... Back in the 90s, I bought the Revell 1:100 F-14 TOMCAT. My father was putting it together for me before his arthritis got REALLY bad and before he got cancer and then, he stopped and it was put down in our basement and on our version of the shelf of doom. The model is basically put entirely together - all it needs are the afterburner "pans"/exhausts and the canopy. But, through the years - the parts for the model have been lost. I have asked my builder, Kyle, if he'd finish it for me if I got the needed parts and the decals. He has agreed to. Now,
  12. Thank you, Guys ... a guy in Oregon is sending the decals.
