    1/48 WWII Aircraft, mostly the single engine types. Most of my work is done for friends and the USAF Museum, so the range of subjects and scales is quite large. Building for others eliminates the need to store or display the models. I enjoy it all.

  1. Well Then. I suppose you are excused---this time.
  2. Gil. Will you QUIT already!! You are making the rest of us look bad. Love your work, BTW.
  3. Yep. Ask 5 modelers on how to do something and you will get at least 6 different answers.
  4. Very well done Gil. Makes me want to dig out that F-86A conversion I planned on doing many years ago. I don't know how you 'measure' your black stripes, but it looks like you did a bang up job. If I may, I would like to present my method. Paint the yellow. Then cut a piece of masking tape the width of the black line. Lay that down next to the yellow stripe and then mask up to it. Makes for a consistent pattern and is easy to do. Just my way of doing it - your mileage may vary. Mark
  5. Definitely a brilliant, shiny surface. That Crew Chief must have a terminal case of tennis elbow. Well done on a classic blast from the past.
  6. David I have that sheet and you are welcome to the VAQ-33 decals. Send me your address. myoungcc @ gmail.com Mark
  7. Tony, I have a large glass display case, 5 foot X 5 foot X 18 inches deep. It is full. Crammed to the gills. On occasion I have be able to free up space by donating to museums, when I can find a good home for them. Most of my builds are for others, so displaying them is not a concern. I have not resorted to storing or disposing of any of them, but that may be an option one of these days. Mark
  8. As always Gil, you are DESPICABLE!! (As in Daffy Duck despicable - it's a joke son, a joke) All in all though, you need to have your thumbs broken and give the rest of us a chance. Another example of your superlative work. Keep it up.
  9. Gil - You never cease to amaze me. Sweeeeet work.
  10. I found that picture and there was a blip that indicates it will be released in late 2020. Now we need to start a pool on which year that really means
  11. Hi Nick Thanks for your response. I should have posted, but I have a set of the decals coming from a fellow over on HyperScale. I'm not aware of the Azur B-10 kit. When might it be coming out? I have the model built. It is the matter that the paint keeps fighting me. Actually, truth be known, most of my problems are my fault. Thanks again. Happy Modeling
  12. I am in need of the Alaska Mission decals from the re-issued 1/72nd scale Williams Brothers B-10. The ones I have disintegrated. I think they are also on an old Microscale sheet. The Alaska markings are all I need. If anyone has a set and willing to part with them, I am more than willing to cover your cost and asking price. Thanks in advance.
  13. Good Evening Troops, I am Mark Young and I am a glutton for punishment. Having stepped into the job of getting the Chapter Newsletters passed around, I have done a lot of work updating and upgrading the previous system. Nothing at all against Fred or David, just newer technology needed to be applied. Read: The mass of mail got way too large for Gmail to handle, so something had to be done. Anyway, I want every IPMS member with an email address to receive the Newsletters. Many are served by their respective Chapter Contacts, and I rely on them heavily to get the word out. Many people are not associated with a Local Chapter and are floating out there in the hinterlands of our modeling world. They (You?) need love too. Please help me get the word out to everyone you know. The following, or a reasonable facsimile, is to be posted in an upcoming Journal. In order to jump the gun a bit and deal at a more personal level, I'll start here. +_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+_+ For those not aware, there are some 30 Chapter Newsletters being produced by some very dedicated and talented individuals within the respective chapters. I have recently taken over the national distribution of these Chapter Newsletters. My goal is delivery of the Newsletters to every IPMS member with an email. I need a bit of help in achieving that goal. 1. Chapter Contacts – Please open the emails with IPMS Newsletter Distribution, sent via Mail Chimp, in the subject line. They are not SPAM. So far, only 55% of the emails are being opened on a regular basis. I want to see 100%. 2. Chapter Contacts – Please forward the email to all the members in your chapter. 3. Chapter Contacts – If you have not been receiving these emails, please contact me with a current name and email address. I will be happy to add your chapter to the distribution list. Several of the links on the IPMS websites are not valid. While you are at it, let the Director of Local Chapters know of any changes. 4. Chapter Contacts – If your chapter publishes a Newsletter that is not being distributed nationally and you want it seen by everyone, please send the Newsletter to me. PDF format is preferred. A link to the Newsletter will work as long as I can download it. 5. Individual IPMS Members – If you are not in a chapter and not receiving the Newsletter emails, please send me your name and address. I’ll get you added in. Let’s make the Newsletters available to everyone. Please send any submissions or correspondence to: myoung.IPMS.5494a@gmail.com Thank You Mark Young IPMS Newsletter Distribution guy.
  14. Could it be that the OP just wants to know who built that model he admires so he can contact the builder? Good chance he wants to know how a certain technique or effect was done so he can improve his model. I have no problem with the names being turned under, but there are times I would like to know who built that model, so I can contact him if possible. No arrows here. Just my perspective.
  15. Very nicely done. For many years I have wanted to do one in 1/48th. Have the kit, have the conversion, have the get around to it-ness - eh, not yet.
