  1. Way cool, Kev! It almost looks like she is being "hatched" out of the 'egg' pod. The colors look great for what it is. Bill
  2. COOL! Great job Ron. What color red is that? A custom mix or what? Bill
  3. Cool Bird you have there Duke. It really has a bird like quality to it, I think. You wrangled it into a fine looking representation of the real thing. Bill
  4. That's an awesome build. I couldn't imagine being towed over the North Atlantic in something like this. Too many variables there for a safe recovery. Well done. Bill

    Well done, Kev! The Empire will never be the same now. Bill
  6. Mike, What about using clear sprue for the water stream from the hose to the point of its impact? Using a piece thin enough then maybe adding some clear caulk to that for more volume to it. You might looking at some of the ship guys for how they do sprays with cotton tufts for wakes to make your water bouncing off the engine cowling. Just some ideas. Bill
  7. Great job. I remember back when I built that kit. Left it Natural metal (silver plastic) and used the square bottle of Testor's Orange paint. Some gloss black tires and it was ready to deploy. Cool paint scheme. Bill
  8. Hidden in plain view. Nice save. Mark, is the bar armor PE or plastic, you did a nice job on getting that all together. Bill
  9. Nice job, Ron! Maybe I would be able to something like that done in a couple of months. Let's see...seven parts, seven months, that's probably about right for me lately. Any way, very cool. Bill
  10. I have to agree with Mark. The weathering is fantastic. Keep it coming. Bill
  11. Creepy looking...but in a good way? I guess. Nicely done. Bill

    Looks like he could use some braces. Great job Kevin. Bill
  13. Thanks guys. I really enjoyed building this kit. Minor issues easily solved. It's kind of funny about the canopy glass. I polished it then dipped it in whatever 'Future' is called now. I scratched it while installing it and had to take off the part and re-polish it and re-attach it. I guess it worked out ok. Bill
  14. Great job on that finish Bill. Classic Scheme. Two thumbs up. Bill
  15. Here are some more photos of the build. The model was pretty easy to paint; overall MM Acryl Army Helo Green (FS 34031) on the outside and on the inside I used Tamiya NATO Black. Other shades were also used to break up the overall colors. The inside of the engine area was MM Yellow Zinc Chromate with a mist coat of fluorescent green from the square bottle in the transmission area. Adding the Zactomodels exterior set really helped the kit also. So, here they are... I used Lite Bright pegs for the screens on the IP. I wired up the Disco Ball and the tail area. On the rotor, I placed dots of red, blue, green and yellow with a toothpick for the maintenance indicators. I also made umbilicals from the fuselage to the weapon stations. After everything was together I gave it a dry brushing with Tamiya weathering powders.
