  1. Creepy looking...but in a good way? I guess. Nicely done. Bill

    Looks like he could use some braces. Great job Kevin. Bill
  3. 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
  4. Great job on that finish Bill. Classic Scheme. Two thumbs up. Bill
  5. 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.
  6. Thanks, Gil. That glass was the hardest part of the build. Had to hack up some interior things to make it fit just so. Some more pics to come. I forgot how to post them...haven't finished anything in a while. I really enjoyed building this one. Bill
  7. Here is the Kiowa Warrior from MRC. Great build. Very wordy directions, but comprehensive. I also used the Zactomodels exterior details. I added some seat belts, a CAR-15 on the IP.
  8. Looks great, Gil Inside and out nicely done. A great blast from the past. Bill
  9. Beautiful job. Great finish on an exceptionally large model. Bill
  10. Nice job! Looks like a clean build. Bill
  11. I always wanted that kit. Not enough lawn mowing money at that time. The kit looks great Bob. Bill
  12. Nice job Bryan! They all look great. How about a nice SUV for them all to get to their destination? Bill
  13. EXSSSSelent! Maybe the bow string broke on the armor plates? Bill
  14. Nicely done! Your painting of the leather coat, helmet and gloves look great. The scene is very nice also. Bill
  15. Nicely done. That's a very cool looking scheme and well executed. Bill

    Yery cool! You captured the skin and hair color great. Beware the Ide's of March. Bill
  17. The diving judges give it a 10. Well executed. Bill
  18. Great job Gil! That Nautilus support is well worth the money for this build. It's nice to see a black radome on one of these birds. Cool scheme too. Bill
  19. Looking great so far! As for another big kit, it isn't...it's ultra big. Cockpit looks fantastic. Bill
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. Looks great...even without a base. Bill
  23. Nice work! You can tell the lineage of the TV series from this ship. Great idea. Bill
  24. Well done. Your attention to the small things really make an interesting build. Really great work done so far! Bill
  25. 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
