    30 Seconds Over Tokyo B-25

    Just tossing this out. I believe there was a B-25 used as camera aircraft with that type of front turret for Camera position. Is it possible the Photo bird made the Movie?? Who knows. Cheers Bill

  4. Hello Mike

    A thought from a Senior modeler(65).

    Any concept of posting notices with Award Winning models  for viewing Saturday during Show hours.

    1. Cards with models stating Award Winner. (1a) Not what the award is ,only that it is a winner.

    2. Concerns about Banquet attendees are mute as awards are announced after Banquet.

    3. Models leaving if not winners is a risk but as a National attendee I am there for the whole convention ,not just winning an award. (3a) Registration rules state models are not to leave showroom until after Awards ceremony.

    4. Allow much more review of show results, rather than just a brief slide photo and glimpse before packed Saturday night.

    5. This method of display has been accomplished in numerous shows worldwide, including World Model Expo in Telford England.

    Cheers

    Bill

    1/72nd Revell F-14D

    This was a "Out of Box" project. This kit I will recommend as not a difficult build but loaded with nice items such as Missiles nice interior,Great Decals. This is my first attempt at a F-14 and their interesting "wear" schemes. Kit decals were by Cartograf and worked very well. Paint was Vallejo for most part with Gunze used for the Cockpit exterior section. Final finish was Testors "Dull-Coat" decanted. A friend of mine with aircraft photography said dirty and flat is accurate. Most photos I found verify this. Thanks for Looking Comments Welcome Regards Bill

    Thanks Gil Amazing the difference in looks,folded VS straight. I believe weathering requires artistic talents I am challenged to obtain. I envy your skill in this area.Reason I tend to build clean. cheers Bill

    Final VMF-211 Aircraft..1/48 F4U-1D

    Thank You Randall I suggest taking one of those Corsair kits and spend a few days..This is a fall together kit and you will enjoy the build. Cheers Bill
  15. This aircraft was flown by Marines in Ground support for Army in 1945 in Philippines. This is the 1/48th Tamiya kit Gil mentions in his build below. Great Kit and a nice relief for some well engineered model. Some basic stuff, Testors Spray Gloss Blue(Decanted),Mr Hobby Semi-Gloss (Decanted), Eduard Seatbelts, filled step in starboard dropped Flap. Only color was Green in a couple of places. Uschi fine line used for Antennas Thanks for Looking Comments Welcome Cheers Bill
