  1. Every time I get something from Victory Models, they include a card offering a promotion from an on-line wine merchant. What are the prospects of doing something similar thru on-line retailers? Perhaps that could be the modern day equivalent of a flyer in the model kit box.
  2. I read the editorial letter from IPMS/Washington DC with great interest. And then it occurred to me; I see ads in the Journal from all kinds of modelling- related businesses, how come I never see anything on their web pages about IPMS? I regularly shop sites such as Squadron, Scale Hobbyist, Hobbylinc, Victory Models, etc. What would it take to have them include a link on their home page to IPMS/USA? I remember a comment some time ago about having small flyers inserted by manufacturers into kits in the past - I remember those. So maybe that's no possible anymore. But surely online retailers would be willing to point customers to the society; it would be mutually beneficial.
  3. Thanks so much, Gil. Your photos confirmed the data I have. They're particularly helpful since they show some present-day birds. The -9DD is particularly frustrating as it has a straight axle, no half-yoke. I think I'll try to correct the models. Wish me luck! 🤔 Dick
  4. I'm working on these 1/48th kits by ARK Models, which apparently were previously ICM kits. But the landing gear for both are puzzling me. Every photo and diagram I've found, including those of Kagero's Yak-1, Vol. 1 & 2, show the half-fork of the main gear facing toward the aircraft centerline, while the kit parts have them toward the gear doors/wingtips. Can anyone give me definitive input on this? Thanks.
  5. Thanks, Eric. I've been in contact with Paul. Now I'm trying to identify IPMS members in the Lansing area who interested.
  6. Are there people in the general area of Lansing, MI, who would be interested in starting an IPMS chapter? Please let me know. Our closest chapters are at least an hour away in any direction, and I'd love to be able to meet and work with folks around here. Thanks.
  7. I'm about to exhaust a bottle of Metalizer Metalic Blue, which has been great for the translucent blue of interior surfaces of Japanese aircraft. I can't find a replacement. Does anyone have a recommendation?

  9. Thanks, gentlemen. I appreciate the assistance.

  14. I managed to ruin the top of port wing, part #12B, of kit #2670, Re.2002 Ariete. Does anyone have one in their spares box they'd be willing to part with?
  15. Thanks for the info and the comments, Gil. Yes, I believe the bottles will be visible in the cockpit when complete. And I appreciate your words of caution. I wasn't really thinking about judges, but was simply trying to be as authentic/accurate as I can. So as I was putting this together, I suddenly realized I didn't have any idea what I was working with. This will be helpful.
