  1. My primary rags of choice are all-cotton clothing cut up into small squares, mostly old t-shirts and sweatshirts. They occupy a large cardboard box that sits on the floor next to my bench within easy reach.
  2. The Victory Ekranoplan 357 is AWESOME. I love building weird and wacky airships, which basically translates mostly into Russian conceptual monstrosities like this. Your looks very nicely rendered
  3. ICM's imaginative subject matter drew me in on this kit, especially the included figures and graphic background image of the reactor in flames. Note the guy inside the corrugated tin checkpoint hut; my picture is not very good but he's sitting at a table with a phone to his ear, probably trying frantically to get intel from someone. The kit goes together quite well but I'm a sucker for post WWII Soviet military or regime, take your pick. It was pointed out to me by another modeler that the insignia on the cab door is incorrect; that is a Ukranian national flag emblem and this is a Russian truck.
  4. The bumper stickers on the back sum up this scenario perfectly.
  5. I built this several years ago and it included my crude and 1st attempt at a base diorama.
  6. I too, sent money for a 2-year membership on March 12 2021 but never received any mention of a 'IPMS member number'; When I opened up a forum reg name and password I found an order number on my payment confirmation reply so I plugged that in, and it seems to have worked, but I never received any other information from anyone about it or where to find such a thing. Did I miss something?
  7. ...There were the entire bunch of Mad Max vehicles available in 1/35 or 1/24 scale: Immortan Joe's Gigahorse Doof Wagon Nux's Chevrolet Coupe Rictus Erectus's Big Foot The Buzzard Excavator Imperator Furiosa's War Rig
  8. Very cool David, I like your realism and interpretation, right down to the fuselage tears and bullet holes. Are we to assume this is a just-downed aircraft? It seems almost too clean to have crash-landed on open ground without some thrown up soil, dust, or other earthen debris languishing on the wings. But perhaps I don't know the whole story behind your efforts. Also, did you list the scale? Or did I miss that? I can only hope my long-planned diorama turns out as good as yours. I've been staring both a Celluclay box and containers of epoxy resin and hardener in the face for several weeks now as I've never used it before and fear my own inability to properly utilize it.
  9. Thanks everyone for acknowledging me and my introduction. I hope to explore this hobby, your work(s) and more of IMPS ASAP.
  10. Greetings all from Southeast Michigan: I am a brand new member to IPMSUSA, something I realize I should have done decades ago, but nonetheless, I finally decided to make the move. Being 66 years old means, well, a few things; more available time at the modeling bench thanks to retirement, needing ever more magnification to see what's ON the bench, and like all of you, facing challenges in finding where to put the stuff I make. But I've definitely got the bug...bad. My dad passed on the genetic material that I now have for this hobby; he used to make kits himself back in the paleozoic era of the early 60's and I clearly remember some of the aircraft models he made that were hung from my bedroom ceiling, there until my brother and I knocked them down from horsing around. We used to make our models together back then, and when we broke them or got new ones we kept a huge spare parts box that we'd franken-glue new stuff together, kit bashing to our hearts content. No airbrush or hardly even paint back then, just Testor's glue and crazy imaginations. Dragsters with 6 or 8 jet engines, for instance, figures with 3 heads or animal/human hybridized concoctions, trucks with wings, etc., each one a different make or even scale. We didn't care and it didn't matter. It was decades later, after my own family was established that I re-discovered the old styrene aroma that so captivated me when I was young and I renewed my deep fascination with building, but now with much more patience, ability, and resources available to me than I ever dreamed possible. So today the dream lives on; I love being at the bench and can easily find myself squirreled away in my basement for 5-6 hours at a stretch fiddling over some cranky P.E. laced sub-assembly procedure until I can hold it up and crow with victory at what I've done. I don't have a huge stash like many of you have, but I keep trying.
