  1. Has there ever been a set to add the forward/cockpit gunners position to the Monogram 1/48 Ju-52? Love to do one for a Norwegian campaign aircraft.
  2. Sometimes the old dogs are the best dogs.
  3. Awesome, great start and they tell me nuke bomb trolleys are planned.
  4. Has anyone ever made post war ground equipment, like nuclear weapons trolleys, Blue Steel carrier, etc? Or are there good drawings available?
  5. Never be too concerned about an exact match, unless you're modeling an aircraft fresh from the factory. Get as close as you can, and err slightly on the light side, as real paint fades. Especially in snowy Europe.
  6. Has anyone used these? They have a set I'm interested in, but reviews of the products are up and down the scale.
  7. I remember Fotocut so well. He did some stuff for IPMS that I loved. RIP Fred.
  8. 1/144 is smaller than 1/72 The higher the second number is, the smaller the kit.
  9. Try eBay. There's some phenomenal deals if you look carefully.
  10. Picked this up recently on eBay, perfect condition. Don't ask me what it cost. Seriously. Don't ask. You'll hate me.
  11. I completely agree that not only should the scale be mentioned, but mentioned first. When you hear modelers talking, they'll say something like, "What did you think about the 1/48 Tamiya P-51?" Never "What did you think about the P-51 by Tamiya in 1/48 scale?" We don't talk like Yoda, and likely don't want to read like Yoda.
  12. I've ordered from Hannants, and am batting .500 with them.
  13. Then the Internet as being decidedly unfriendly when I was looking.
  14. I'm working on an old Airfix 1/72 Vulcan, converting it to a Mk.1. The only anti flash markings I can find are for a Victor. Might be some useability there, but I'd be lacking a version of the squadron insignia. Anyone know of a Vulcan anti flash decal sheet?
  15. The $100 super detail work, means absolutely zip if the basic construction if wanting.
  16. I've never had it fog the clear, just use caution to keep the cement off the areas not to be cemented.
  17. I'm a huge fan of Tenax 7R for canopies. Great capillary action, I usually fit the canopy or clear part in place and using a 00000 brush loaded with Tenax, I just touch it to the join.
  18. Releasing yet another Mustang, gah! A decent 1/48 Hawker Hunter would sell like hotcakes, especially in the UK. Or a new tool 1/72 Vulcan, a decent 1/72 B-1B, I could go on about truly deserving releases that are mainstream.
  19. If you know a graphic artist, compare the decal to a Pantone wand. Might be easier to cross over.
  20. No, that was the 1967 car with the turbine and cockpit side by side. Sitting on my shelf.
  21. Bad idea. Poorly done dioramas.
  22. There's one for Tamiya to do in 1/12! It would be great if Tamiya did some classics in 1/12. Matra MS80 Tyrrell 005 Ford Gt-40 P1075 Porsche 917K Ferrari 512M Penske McLaren M8D The Above mentioned Gurney Westlake Eagle.... Could be a long list!
  23. I remember my brother building the original release of the kit in 1964.
