    That turned out great, nice job.
  2. I updated one of the very first open box videos I ever shot. The new video is up-close and personal compared to the original bare bones video I first shot. I hope some will find the video useful. Happy modeling folks.
  3. I'm working on part 2 to my video blog of this kit-bash. I added a few WIP photo's of the latest progress. I started to rush trying to reach the finish line but I pulled in the reigns and slowed it down. I didn't want to cut corners after putting in this much effort. Anyway, here it is so far. I'm definitely moving it forward,.
  4. I would love to tackle one of these tiny kits but my eyes would probably explode. Nice job.
  5. ghodges, thanks for taking a look. This project has been a marathon run, but I will get some major work done on this build now that I pulled the box out and started tinkering. There's nothing quite like revisiting an old project.
  6. I started this project in 2008 but shelved the build due to a move. I just now pulled the box from the shelf and started to tweak the build. I have started a VLOG to chronicle this marathon run. The link to the VLOG is below for anyone interested. LINK http://youtu.be/IeJW0dZWXiw
  7. Thanks for posting the link. The Round 2 release doesn't look much different if at all from the original parts. The kit is molded in blue and not white and decals may be different. I guess it's nice to have the option to grab a new kit instead of a used kit, but at 26.00 new? I'm not tempted to buy one.
  8. I just finnished a new open box video on the old AMT Grumman F9F Panther. It's a fairly sparse kit but with a little doctoring you can make the Trumpeter AM parts work. I wouldnt dish out a lot of cash for one of these old AMT kits, they truley are not worth the 25.00 or higher prices I hacve seen on these old kits. If you can grab one for a few bucks then they are worth it. LINK
  9. Yep, this is really a nice kit. I do these open-box videos for all the eBay browser so they can get a look at some of the older kits before making a purchase. This particular kit is truly a nice find if you can land one at 8.00 on eBay.
  10. Nice work on the bird. She looks amazing! :smiley16:
  11. HERE'S AN OPEN BOX VIDEO OF THE 1994 RELEASE OF AM'S P-51A. (2002 Rebox) A heads up to all eBay browser's: There is a seller, selling these kits at 8.00 a pop minus decals, but after market decals are easy to come by. I think there may be more than one seller doing this. Simply do a eBay search for Accurate Miniature 1/48 and I'm sure you will come across these sellers.

  12. I just won this kit on eBay for 9.50, so I thought I would shoot a quick open box video. I do these videos mostly for the eBay browser who may want to get a close-up look at some of the kits being sold on the bay. I actually found this older Fujimi kit to be molded rather well and the sprues very clean and free of flashing. This is an older kit and lacks some fundamental detail, but for under 10.00 these older kits can be a bargain. I'm sure this can be made into something very presentable, also these are bargain kits for building with your young ones
  13. Ha, I'm a simple thrifty guy and I like post-it's for most applications. If I need hard, crisp lines I run to the store and grab some type of label paper with a self adhesive back. I also use silly putty in very small chunks for covering odd areas and making small odd shapes.
