  7. Just went to the IPMSUSA home page in order to click onto the Nooga Nats web page and the links are "temporarily removed"! Can someone explain why, and what exactly is going on? GIL

    1/72nd Revell F-14D

    Terrific looking Tomcat! You did an excellent job of capturing the varying colors in an otherwise drab scheme, and your weathering shows the wear on a fleet bird without being overdone. That'll be a proud addition to your shelf. Congrats! GIL

    Albatross D-V

    The ceramic wire cuts relatively easily with a #11 blade, but you do need to wear eye protection when doing so. I think it was sold in a couple of gauges, but the 6mil seems to work well for 1/72 and 1/48. The biggest problem now is I believe the couple (home business) that sold it retired, so I'm not sure where else it can be bought. I like it because it can be cut just a little bit long, flexed into place (it will not kink), and then add a drop of glue into each hole. When cut to the right length it's perfectly straight, doesn't sag despite heat/humidity/cold, doesn't need to be heated to make it "taught", and usually doesn't even need painting (smoke colored as it comes).

  14. Nice work, and a great save on that side window! Those scimitar props really add a degree of "cool" to the Hawkeye! GIL

    To all the gizmologist- how to wire an aircraft

    I've found that the thing that makes modeler's wiring bundles look the most realistic isn't how they're run, but adding those bundle wrap straps and end connectors. Those little details, along with some sharp painting and washes, are what really make them appear authentic to me. GIL
