  1. Thank you so much for that. I'm hopefully going to start work on a maintenance scene in 1/48th with two jets.
  2. Just IMHO but 2'x2' doesn't seem too much to me. It's literally a ceiling tile or 1/4th of an 8 foot table. Guess the answer is to read carefully and maybe email the organizers early to find out special rules for the event.
  3. That looks great and I have a thousand questions because I'm starting a similar project with 2 1/48th scale F-105's. 1) What are the 1:1 scale dimensions of the walls. I know you said you went thicker because of the speaker but what are the original dimensions? I havent been able to find a source so far. 2) Did you make the sign on the wall? Can't wait to see the rest of this! Great Job!
  4. I'm starting work on a Vietnam era scene with a 1/48 F-105D and I ran into two questions I'm struggling to find the answers to. 1) Part of the scene is a tire change. Looking at modern tire changes on small A/C I see maintenance using a bottle jack on the bottom of the landing gear to lift the plane. Was that the practice in '66 with these jets or was there more to it? 2) I know from a few pictures I've found so far that the jets had starter carts, what were their designation? Thanks in advance for any help
  5. I know IPMS rules state that a dio can't be more than 3'x3' without permission from the contest but whats average? I've never been to a contest before so I'm not knowledgeable. listening to a podcast the other night and the host seemed to feel that dio modelers go through a phase of wanting to make things big and it seemed like it was frowned upon. I fit into this category so help! lol Rich
  6. So looking for this scale of the D models and I'm only finding Itareri and KittyHawk. Reviews aren't great for either kit. Is there any other options out there I'm missing?
