  1. Cool idea on the mixing balls! Glad you’re up and running again. Hope everything works out for the best. chris
  2. How much is that pink F3000? and for grins how about both battlestar galactica models? Built those as a kid but they didn’t survive the purge.
  3. Looks like they pull a cover over it. Here are 2 pics I found for you. In terms of paint I try to assemble as much as possible before priming and painting. Anything that will be affected by glue I assemble 1st. I did this for my F-16 in Thunderbirds motif. I put the engine halves together 1st then did all the filling, then add components and paint. chris
  4. Makes me wish i built 1/72, then maybe I could get more than 1 in my carry on! Easy to fill out one form lol
  5. Have you tried taking a pic and loading into google translate? It’s pretty good.
  6. Going to be a show stopper! I don’t know why others haven’t added lighting to armor before. This will be a world apart from the traditional build.
  7. Wow, great advice gang! I had tried to get back on here last weekend and ran into the forums being down and my ipad doing the same thing to me haha thrilled with all the responses once i got back online. ok off to try an outline since my thoughts truly are all over the place on what to include in the article. I finished up Tamiya’s 1/350 Enterprise complete with hangar bay and full lighting. I’ve seen quite a few of these and alot of them have tons of aftermarket on them and lighting has been talked about. I think what my buddy likes is the focus on out of the box with lots of painting techniques to set it off and modernizing the lighting to a full led package withadvice on how to do it. See... I think you guys got me started on a direction already!
  8. So my buddy says I “have” to write up an article for IPMS 😂 I finally told him I’d give it a shot. Haven’t found anything yet on how to do that, although I have to admit it’s been a casual search. 😉 How do I go about submitting an article for the journal? I could also use a guide on the requirements for an article.
  9. Hey everyone, my daughter loved the B2 Stealth bomber at the Air force Museum and got me one for my birthday. It’s a 1987 Revell model so you can imagine the state of the decals. I saw on Scalemates that the Nationals had a set of B-2 decals. Would love to use them if anyone has a set and would part with them. Let me know 😃 Chris IPMS USA 2006 National Convention [Kansas City] Decal Northrop B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber IPMS USA - No. 2006 - 1:72
  10. Really nice write up. You covered all the typical questions that come from these ahead of time, like where did you get "that" and where did you buy "those"! I'm building the USS Enterprise in 1/350 so I will make use of this for sure.
