  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 p
  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.
  16. Spurious Works For Me. It is all about having fun, right! Were you able to carbon date that plastic?
  17. Very Nice Dick, I always wanted to do a 1/48th on floats, but doing it in 1/32 was as close as I came. Did this one in 1995. It now resides at the USS Lexington Museum in Corpus Christi. Run down and take a gander if you have a mind to.
  18. Hi gang. I have found a set at Jay's Models in the land of Down Under and it is on order. Thanks for getting back to me. Gil, that 1/48th thing is one of the reasons I don't have much at all in 1/72.
  19. Peter. Congrats on getting the Nationals. Looking forward to getting there. We have several Air Force Friends in Texas and this gives all the more reason to come down. Have driven past San Marcos any number of times. Friends in San Antonio - DFW areas. As soon as I saw your logo I had to chuckle and approve of it whole heartedly. I have already sent a copy of it to a friend in Greeneville that flies the flag that has inspired your design. I know where it came from. A lot of our members do, but then, I am sure there are many who don't. I would like to recommend that you pu
  20. Mark. Thanks for the 'encouragement' I guess Wants and Disposals is still official and alive, but the actual activity has seemed to migrated to the various genres in the forum. So far I have no leads from this forum or HS, so it looks like I may be placing an order. While the kit parts don't look all that bad, their fit is atrocious and I am hoping to improve on that. Happy Modeling
  21. Good afternoon, crew, Apparently no one reads Wants and Disposals. The last entry before mine was Feb 2018, the one before that, some time in 2017. Hence, the posting of this Want here. I am looking for the Falcon Clear-Vax #30 US Acft in Foreign Service Canopies in 1/72 scale. In particular, I am looking for the B-10 set. If you have a complete or partial sheet of the canopies, I am ready to buy it from you. Or, if you are feeling generous, I will accept donations They are available, but from halfway around the world. Prefer dealing with
  22. Marcin, A friend sent me a set of Cleveland Model plans for the Wedell-Williams #44. He is somewhat of a student of the Air Racers and though he cannot be certain, he feels like the #45 cockpit would be very similar to #44. Educated guess if nothing else. I have hopefully uploaded a .pdf of those plans. If this does not work, contact me at myoungcc @ gmail.com. Hope this helps. My buddy says he will keep snooping around.

  23. Hi Gil, I just Googled ceramic wire and all that comes up are spools of it. Is the wire you use straight or curled? Could have used some of that not too long ago!
  24. Wunnerful, Wunnerful, Wunnerful, or in current vernacular - Sweeeeet, Sweeeeet, Sweeeeet.
  25. Gorgeous representation of the PZ.11. Superb craftsmanship and finishing skills. I am very curious as to how you did the ribbed skin on the flying surfaces. How'd you do that?
