  1. Hello: Here is one of my latest kit that I received from my lovely wife as a gift at the IPMS ORLANDO NATIONALS in 2012. The old king tiger Porsche turret from tamiya. For this project I bought the following aftermarkets: 1. Mirage resin zimmerit 2. photoetched grilled set 3. friulmodel metal tracks 4. metal barrel. I started working with the metal tracks, see the pictures. Then I work with the resin.
  2. Friul tracks are awesome, I have more models with it and after you understand how to properly clean it, you can built it in no time. Now I'm trying the plastic workable tracks from bronco for a Sherman and to be honest, I'm starting to like it better. Why? they have more details than the metal ones, so you may try it as well.

  5. Really? gee thanks. I saw the picture in the Journal, she was really happy.
  6. Hi Jim, I just use Baking Soda. You see the baking soda have the perfect consistency of snow like, they start to build up and stay in place. If you really want to left it in place, use some steam over them so the water is trapped in the baking soda, making it more solid without losing shape. just try it and experiment a bit.
