  1. Sweet. Who makes that color It looks close to Russian Cockpit Green.
  2. That is neat. It gives you an experience very close to being there.
  3. I'll be flying in on Thursday morning. Can't wait.
  4. Gil, The brush idea for blending the pencil lines seems like an interesting idea.
  5. Dennis, The professional photographer in our club convinced me to shoot in RAW. I got Photoshop Elements to process the shots. There is so much that can be done with a RAW photo.
  6. Nice job with some old kits. As to the panel lines, I think that they come off a little stark. I have the same problem with folks who use a mechanical pen or pencil to run into engraved lines on newer kits. I think that a wash tends to give a more subtle and uneven look to the panel line. My 2 cents.
  7. That is a great donation. We all ought to think about IPMS/USA when making out our wills so we don't have to hope that our families will act so wisely.
  8. That is nice. I considered the vacuform kit as well as the resin one out of NZ, but for once my patience paid off. You are right Ron, there isn't much out there, information-wise.
  9. The new Frrom-Azur Vildebeest is on its way to the Knights' Court of Last Resort. I've wanted to do this one ever since I read Bloody Shambles. Now I need info. Cockpit and detail photos, etc. Anything you can point me to would be appreciated.
  10. Been to 17 on the list. Omaha will make 18, and on my 50th b'day to boot!
  11. Nice to see some WWI stuff and in God's one true scale.
  12. Thanks for staying on top of things Eric.
  13. That is a great technique. Consider it stolen. As they say in TOP GUN, "Gutsiest move I ever saw man."
  14. Ron, I love your builds of these older kits. Nice to see that these older kits can be built up into very nice models.
  15. Very nice Chris. Glad to see someone can build for a deadline. I hate that.
  16. And that is one of the many reasons I hate acrylics.
  17. I have several sets of KC-135 decals. Do you know of any particular manufacturer and sheet that contains what you are looking for.
  18. Is the Badger 150 a dual action unit David? Yes
  19. I have a bunch of early IPMS Magazines, so early that they are the UK magazine with a 4 page "wrap-around" that detailed the happenings in IPMS/USA. I don't know how far back they go. I'll look.
  20. Go on ebay and pick up a good, cheap Badger 150. I've gotten one before for as little as $25. Worked fine.
  21. I think you have a bad seal somewhere.
  22. In 72nd, Academy makes one.
  23. That is a beautiful model in gentlemen's scale.
