  1. These are for the 1/48 scale B-58 Hustler. Anyone happen to have a set they could part with? chris
  2. TheMongoose

    HMS M1

    Nice camo and weathering
  3. Nice! I too have been building without aftermarket. Ships especially seems to come at double the cost of the model. Did you add the reinforcement plates along the hull or do they come with the kit?
  4. Cool idea! Tells a nice story all on it’s own.
  5. Hey Steve thanks for the ideas and the feedback! It was late in the day before I noticed the note on my entry form. Glad I was able to connect with you 🙂 I think you and James are onto something there. I was getting to complicated with the trials I was doing to display it. Just a clear plexi riser may be just the trick. Will be a good winter project for me. Although...I got really excited about carriers after talking to James about his Connie. I have the Kitty Hawk in my stash and I am almost positive it's coming out this Fall. I am going to do something with it to lift the deck and display the hangar bay so these ideas will get put to good use! You'll see it in 2 years if you guys are in Wisconsin I bet.
  6. That rope looks just like steel cable!
  7. Welcome welcome! You sound like me, started out just building as a kid and not painting. I remember this kid in high school doing some amazing paint jobs and that’s about when i started, albeit with a brush and those Testors square bottles lol I’ll check out your builds as well. Not a ton of us on here but we are a talkative bunch.
  8. I get the feeling you and I are the only ones to build his kit in a long time
  9. Hey guys I had a note from a judge whose name was Steve to get in touch with him at the Show on Saturday. I had been over at the judges table where they were doing model reviews, but hadn’t seen the note at the time so I’m wondering if somebody knows who that might be? The note was on my USS enterprise aircraft carrier if that’s helpful. Steve if you happen to read this or if any of you guys know who Steve is would you please have them contact me through the private message here. Chris
  10. Wish i could help but I don’t have enough info. I can tell you the 1 pontos set I’ve bought and used was better than anything else I’ve used by far. Now the real question is whether you’ll scrap this whole thought process and buy the new 1/200 one!
  11. Awesome work! I really love the build but then found that the way you did the snow for the base really looked incredible, what a great way to complete the model.
  12. Ohh that’s a lot of glass. I can see why you’d hate tape lol how’s progress coming along?
