  1. Thank you Sir I don't accomplish many WW I aircraft so I was happy finishing this one. Regards Bill

  3. As Both Bill Thaw and myself are Pittsburgh natives, I decided on one of his aircraft. For those not familiar with Mr Thaw he was one of the founding members of the Lafayette Escadrille. This is the 1/48 Eduard Nieuport. Kit markings for National Insignias and Thaws Markings which was the "T" and the Indian Head was provided by fellow Modeler Tim Swisher (Local Thaw expert) Used Alclad High Speed Silver for the doping I used Uschi Line for Rigging and Bob's buckle eyelets for attachments,Albion Alloys Turnbuckles also used. This mount of Thaws had two guns and this is the over-wing Lewis I choose to build. Thanks for Looking Comments Always Welcome Regards Bill
  4. 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

  6. Wow Thank you Mark..I followed the "every once in awhile a blind squirrel scores an acorn" methodology. Cheers Bill
  7. 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

  9. Thanks for the Compliments Bill
  10. 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
  11. Thanks Sir appreciate the positive comments Regards Bill
  12. Thanks for the positive feedback All Bill
  13. Thanks Mark Very kind of You Cheers Bill
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. 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
  17. Great Aircraft Gil...Love your efforts with Monogram kits Cheers Bill
  18. Thanks Guys Tamiya Corsair already started. Decals from F√ľndekal newest sheet with "F4U & FG Corsairs part 2 ""Whistling Death" VMF -211 Markings from 1945.Obtained at Phoenix Nationals Cheers Bill
  19. This is my next to last build for the VMF(A) -211. I had custom markings created for this aircraft as it belonged to the Commander. I loved the RAM Decals from WOLFPACK...These were absolutely perfect This was a very well engineered model and defects were self induced. I didn't have the heart to load up the wings with racks. So I left her stealthy. I have completed the Wildcat,Skyraider,Skyhawk,Harrier,and the F-35B. The CF markings are a Little large on the tail but not detracting. Last project for this group is the F4U-1D Corsair. Start Tonight Thanks for Looking Comments are always welcome Cheers Bill
  20. Thank You Dick Cheers Bill
  21. Thank You Guys for your Positive comments Bill
