    We are blessed to have some great modeling talent in Pittsburgh and their willingness to share their skillsets has been a boon to our Club.

  3. Greetings David

    In the section on the Judging Survey I have posted some information regarding the "Open Judging " used by Pittsburgh. I would be more than willing t talk to you regarding this system and why Pittsburgh has chosen it. 

    Dave Morrissette has posted my email and my mobile number is 412-449-7505. I would be more than happy to talk with you and offer any support needed.

    Best Regards


  4. Thanks Guys...Sorry for Delay in Response.

    Gil.. Stripes are painted and Black undercoating for Alclad was the Black section of the Stripes.

    Heres a Look at the Business end and the Karaya Gun Barrels that are really nice.

  6. 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

  7. 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.ARvf3Bq.jpg?1

    Kit decals were by Cartograf and worked very well. FXtVjb3.jpg?1

    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
