  1. I was going to suggest the same thing as Noel. The material is easily painted and stays in place readily.
  2. Today is a good day to buy things from the UK. I bought the C & C 2017 calendar at a good price. The exchange rate moved in the right directions for dollars.
  3. Looking great so far. Good job on the fuselage seams. Waiting to see the Navy scheme.
  4. Great looking model. Well done. I love the ANG special schemes.
  5. Glad you enjoyed the article Phil. I volunteered to do this kit out of the novelty. During the build, I had to do a lot of research to find out just who was Captain Harlock. I wanted to sound somewhat knowledgeable with my write-up. I kind of like Anime but I had not known of Captain Harlock. I took the model to our local club meeting last night and three of our members enthused over the build. They said "You built Captain Harlock!". It is amazing what all we modelers pay attention to. One of our members will be buying Kei's bird for his wife. She likes pink planes.
  6. Welcome Andy. A good looking kit of the Indy racer. Having spent half of today watching the latest Indy race, your model is very appropriate.
  7. Ordered mine from Squadron on Monday. Looking forward to adding it to my building schedule.
  8. Welcome Richard. I am sure that you will find a great group here. Lots of hints and tips plus they can always answer any questions that you may have.
  9. Looks great. Where did you get AK Extreme metalizer aluminum paint? Are there some other shades?
  10. I recently forwarded to Piotr of Master Models links to some reviews of his recent products. He was pleased with the IPMS coverage of his product line-up. He also mentioned that he will be releasing sets for "all of the Sukhoi family" this coming May. Something to really look forward to.
  11. Love the tiger markings on the second decal sheet. Is that Argentine markings? or Iraqi? Interesting kit. Wrong scale but interesting.
  12. It looks good Ed. Great paint job and the BMF came out excellent.
  13. Impressive looking airplane and model. Well done.
  14. Scans are on the way. One of the more interesting Corsair sheets.
  15. A great looking model and a big thanks for carrying us along with you during the build. I think that you are crazy ;-) but it is a great build.
  16. Looks like a great book Tim. Also, a really interesting little ship.
  17. Lots of great schemes. Waiting for the 1/72 version. I love the Tiger Meet versions and I didn't know that Iraq had them. I have the Malvinas version in my collection but love the others.
  18. Same thing happened to me a couple of years ago. I was happy although a friend had planned on buying a kit from me. I guess the key lesson of to get to the vendor room early and buy early.
  19. Just to show how much modelers love Future floor wax, check out Amazon. Look up "Johnson Pledge Floor Care". Once you have the Pledge showing, check the "Frequently Bought Together" note. It has been showing Micro Sol and Micro Set Setting Solutions. Must be a lot of us buying it this way.
  20. The whole secret to get an OptiVisor of some sort. One advantage of 1/72 is that you can store more models on a given shelf. Also, I have a Rat Fink model among them.
