  1. Great job, Ron. The railings and such that you added really set that off nicely. Did the rail come with the kit or is it a piece of HO track? Bill
  2. Well done, sir! Since we mere mortals can't see anything really wrong here; what were the worst sticking points? Fit and finish look great. Bill
  3. Looks great...even without a base. Bill
  4. Nice work! You can tell the lineage of the TV series from this ship. Great idea. Bill
  5. Well done. Your attention to the small things really make an interesting build. Really great work done so far! Bill
  6. Thank you guys. This was a fun model to build. I didn't like the decal options in the kit though. I couldn't find any on line either. So I made my own. Gil, The seat belts helped the cockpit a lot. I forgot to get a descent shot of them though. There were to seated figures that came in the kit that were really nice. I almost used them but i am going to save them for another build. The brake lines on the main gear really helped there too. Christopher, I used bare metal foil cut to size and then wrapped it around the strut. I like how it looks with so much oleo showing. Bill
  7. Hi all, This was supposed to be a quick build, which it basically was. I started putting things together and before I knew it, it was practically done. I added some seatbelts in the cockpit and some brake lines and such on the landing gear. I also took the step out of the the leading edge slat area (the red area) where the top of the wing transitions to the slat well. The paint scheme came from the Classic Air Frames 1/48 kit. Paints used were Vallejo and Model Master. I resized the CA decal sheet from the kit and printed it on my computer. Overall they came out pretty good. I like the color scheme with the three blues/grays. This kit is ancient but it fit great. The detail is accurate and there aren't a million pieces. What's not to like? Any comments always welcome. Bill

    BOOM, BOOM, out go the lights! Cool looking conversion project Bryan. Great job as usual. Bill
  9. Nice job on a very spindly looking kit. I don't mind PE but I don't know if I would tackle something that is just that...'a better man than me, Gunga Din'. Very interesting subject that really paved the way to the moon. Bill
  10. Nice work Duke. Did the kit come with the floded wing option? Well done. Bill
  11. Blue Tail Flies...impressive. Both look great Gil. I am currently working on the 1/32 Hasegawa TA-4J kit of ancient vintage. I hope it comes out as well as either of these two builds. Bill
  12. Nicely done, sir! Really like the Gainful. Bill
  13. Maybe try contacting the US distributer again and don't mention how you got the kit. You didn't keep the receipt from where you purchased it as it was in the pile of kits to be built and you finally got around to build it. Just a thought. Bill
  14. Very cool! It's looking good. Nice details you've added as well. Bill
  15. Fantastic! That mantlet looks huge. It looks like iw would weigh more than the gun. Keep it going. Nice work! Bill
  16. You better be bringing it to the meeting Friday! Looks good in the photos Ed. Great job again. Bill
  17. Now I have a taste for mashed potatoes. Nicely done sir! Bill
  18. Great redux. The coloring and sheen looks great. Bill
  19. I really can't go out! There's nothing I can do with my hair! Great job Kev! I love all the little detail painting you did. Bill
  20. Hey Bob. That light system is a no brainer. Plug it in check out and adjust the intensity of the lights and put the wher you want them. I used them in the wet deck and hangar deck. I hid the wires in some U-channel styrene to make it look more like ventilation ductwork. I think it came out great, if I do say so myself. I like that you can adjust the lights and also add to the hub if you need more options. Hope that helped. Bill
  21. Thanks, Bob. Paper masks did the trick! Bill
  22. Only the Japanese... Very cool! Bill
