  1. Nice! I've got the interior kit I picked up in the fall to start soon, but after building the Meng Sherman with it's many track links to build, I might take some time off 😉
  2. It’s the summer of 1916 and the battle at the Somme front continues. Each day, both sides of the trenches send men into No-Man’s Land in attempts to gain an advantage in the stalemate that has gripped everyone in chaos. Artillery, machine guns, and gas attacks have managed to whittle away troops hunkered down in their muddy habitats and despair grows by the minute. Flechettes and grenades rain down from fragile aircraft above the trenches. The Huns have heard rumors of a new rolling terror being designed and looming ahead from the British lines. Words like "armour" and "tank" have been in the
  3. Actually there's an International chapter that's headed by someone in the UK, so you have AMPS there too.
  4. Having recently attended and judged at the AMPS Nationals in Buffalo this past May, I can put a little light on some things. The awards ceremony was done a bit different with what many feel was great success. For each skill level (Basic, Intermediate, Advanced, and Master), participants were called up alphabetically. As they were called up, their awards were announced and they were given a large manilla envelope. Inside were the judging sheets with comments and awards.

With G-S-B, you are instead modeling to a set of standards and judged on meeting at those standards as opposed to competing with one another. So you can still walk away empty-handed, but if you show a certain level of skill, the category could have a group of builders achieving bronze, another group at silver, and a very highly skilled group.at gold...instead of just three, there could be a dozen or more awarded. It's not just a participation award though...you need to have a certain skill level to place.
  6. Our friends in Stockholm wrote an excellent set of articles...about halfway down this page is the info you need... http://www.ipmsstockholm.se/home/interior-colours-of-us-aircraft-1941-45-part-iii/
  7. I think when it comes doen to it, in the field when a mission called for a drop tank, it wouldn't matter what they used...if something like the 200 gal was laying around, it would've probably been used in a pinch...
  8. Nice work- interesting piece all around. Love the last pic of all the snakes...brings some nice bits of color overall. The one looking like a coral snake would be really popping with the yellow stripes added in, but I like what you've done. Base looks great!
