  1. Hey Gil, As always, a great event!!! I had a blast!!
  2. 1968 STP Lotus turbine

    Nice job. I also have some of the Gravity line. I was told they were prethinned, only to find out more thinner is needed to be able to shoot them through an airbrush. Once I properly thinnef them, they work nicely. Just don't shoot the clear coat over enamel. It's way too hot!!!
  3. Revell 1/48 F-89 Scorpion

    Nice job!! I've always loved this AC!!
  4. Hey Al, I heard you guys had another great show this year. Wish I could have made it. Maybe next year!! Give my best to the rest of the club!! Doug
  5. Who's going?

    I'll be driving up from Florida this time and am looking forward to another awesome event!!
  6. Things that make you fume

    Contests where "home cooking" is the norm, and qualified National judges are turned away. Phamtom categories that aren't posted on the event flyer, but are always won by the local sponsoring it. Best in Show is awarded to a model that doesn't win it's category. I witnessed all these things at a local show, that will remain nameless.
  7. Some unpleasant truths on modelling

    I've made it a habit of photgraphing my models when competed, then when it starts looking long in the tooth, stripping the weapons, interiors, and other useful parts, then waste-canning the rest. I've found about 10-15 years shelf life is about all they'll last. It sucks to toss out all that work, but it keeps my display case filled with good looking stuff, and making room for the newer, better built things. Doug
  8. Mountain Man

  11. Lighting The Work Area.

    Good choices everyone!! The Ott light is a winner!! And I woiuld a to stay away from Halogen lights.They put out way too much heat. I melted a model once, an won't be doing that again, any time soon!! Doug

  15. A Weekend at Noreastcon 40
