  1. Way to go Duke. Now you can nail them up on the wall of your shop.
  2. David Klaus' IPMS Color Cross-reference Guide lists International Orange as a color used on RAAF Army Aircraft. No other orange is listed. I would feel comfortable using that color.
  3. Great photos. For us dummies, what is MFCA?
  4. Great looking model Mark. I love the "mean" look of this critter.
  5. Welcome Dennis. Like Gil said, there are a lot of us like you. Are the two pictures of your doll houses? Very different and well done.
  6. Wow Mark. I love the detail work on all the painting. Very well done.
  7. Duke, you are crazy but - great work. Aren't those Opel buses a PTIA with the chassis. Love the DC-6. I remember watching one when I was a kid. It was at South Bend, IN. In those days, people could climb up to the roof of the terminal to watch the planes.
  8. Great model Pedro plus, thank you for the story of it's background. Well done.
  9. Wow!! Welcome Joseph. It is a friendly group. Great model photos. Congrats. Love the finish on the Challenger. Also, anyone who loves the "Snake" Stuka can't be all bad.
  10. Mean looking like a Tiger should be. As an airplane modeler, I love the detail on the model. Did you bend the side fenders or did they come that way? Also, what did you use for all the dirt on the model?
  11. A great topic. Good information so far. It seems to take us back to the days of building Gillow stick and tissue kits.
  12. Wow Ron. Great looking model. Interesting wing planform. I am sure that it was a tough thing to build. Well done.
  13. Welcome Kurt. What Gil says is true. Most clubs get together simply to talk about modeling (and other things) and to exchange tips etc. The Corsair looks good.
  14. They put the contest off till next month.
  15. Our club was supposed to have an April Fool's contest at the April meeting. It was meant to be a fun activity. After checking my stash, I decided to build the old Aeroclub kit of the Flying Flea. It was simple (5 plastic parts, 5 white metal parts) and I figured that I could build it in a month. After checking it out, I decided that it did not look enough like a flea so I made some additions. Here is the result. Note - I would have gone crazy if I had tried to build this to scale. All photos of the real Flying Flea on the net seem to be different plus the top wing is attached at a single point ahd then held in place by wires. Also, I don't know why I did it, seeing how this was just for fun, but I added a PE seat and an instrument panel to the model.
  16. A good looking model. Thanks for sharing.
  17. You might find that if the paint is allowed to fully set up - a couple of weeks drying time - it may be better. Also, the paint should probably be as thin as possible. Don't put on a really thick coat.
  18. Way to go Duke. Where the hell do you store all of your models? Show us some photos.
  19. A great looking model Mark. I remember seeing one of them at the South Bend, IN airport when I was a kid. You could go up on the top of the terminal and watch the airplanes. I remember seeing those engines start with a great cloud of smoke.
  20. Welcome Kevin. Great stuff. I hope you enjoy this site. Lots of good people.
  21. Looks really great Gil. I love the interior work on the wheel wells. As far as I'm concerned, it is a great contest-quality build. Take it along and enjoy the comments from people. It must be impressive in size.
  22. A good addition Michael. It sure looks like lots of modelers have given their condolences to the family. I hope that they are pleased to see how John's work has affected so many in a positive manner.
  23. Nice work Greg. This really was a great how-to presentation.
