  1. Trying to simulate the rough cuts in the armor plate, kit details are a bit soft in this area.
  2. Some (but not too much), mud has been added under sponsons, uing a mix of Acryl Blue and sand.
  3. Surfing the web last night, I stumbled upon this picture. The frontal armor behid the gun mantlet was extraordinarily thick on the Jagdtiger, one of the reasons it was so difficult to deal with head-on.
  4. Yes, it helps a great deal. Thanks a bunch,
  5. I'd say Taffy 3. I like multi ship displays.
  6. As far as I can discern, there are at least four 1:350 Tirpitz kits currently available; Tamiya, Academy, Trumpeter, and Revell AG. Aside from the Trumpeter kit, which I believe is new, all all the others just re-pops of the Tamiya kit?
  7. This is the scheme that I've (tentatively), chosen. Scanned from a Russian publication that I can't pronounce, and based upon a very well known photograph.
  8. OK, tonight I finished off the right side, now I'm ready for mud under the sponsons, then paint. I've added a couple of road wheels on either side, raising the vehicle, to get a better sense of poportions.
  9. Hey Bob, I don't see a link to the 2013 show, but CRM says it's here somewhere.
  10. Very cool indeed. I've long wanted to do a large scale pre war US Battleship with the cage masts. Too many "want to do's", so little time for it all.
  11. Thanks Gil. I attended the nationals as well in 1991, and joined the Gateway club shortly thereafter. I had already known several local area members prior to that.
  12. No. Actually that shirt was one of a couple dozen just like it given to me by a friend. They're all XL, and too big for me, so I just use them as paint rags in my hobby cave.
  13. I've been after this book for quite a while, but just can't justify the price. Had a chance to grab a copy on ebay for $30, but forgot to bid by the deadline! Oh well,... one day.
