  1. Just checked on sprayhammer.com regarding parts for my Grex Genesis xGi. It has stopped working lately and I am trying to replace parts on the body (such as the needle chuck). However, sprayhammer.com says the parts I am looking for are just one in stock right now. Anybody else have any problems getting Grex parts? Any other outlets I should look into? I really like this brush. Thanks in advance. Bob
  2. Cancel that! I found my certificate at home. It was in one of the file folders I took to Las Vegas and back. As Gilda Radner's Emilly Litella said on Saturday Night Live, "Never mind."
  3. At the Judges Briefing in Las Vegas just over two weeks ago, I received my three-year Nationals Judging certificate and pin. I photographed the certificate, but when I came home to St. Louis, I could not find that certificate. Did anyone by chance pick up my certificate? Please let me know ASAP. Thank you. Bob Delaney
  4. The second one does. The kit I got has decals for US variants. Thanks, Keith! Bob
  5. At a recent swap meet, I bought the Minicraft boxing of the Hasegawa 1:32 Boeing F4B-4 kit (JS-066:350). I opened it up to find two copies of the second sheet of instructions, which includes steps 1 through 13, plus the part drawing and part numbers. I have most of the instructions, but not all. Does anyone out there have this kit and can copy the other sheet of instructions for me? It would be most appreciated. Message me for contact info. Bob
  6. I bought a Fujimi 1:72 UH-1N kit recently at a swap meet, but it lacked instructions. Anyone out here who has that kit and can copy the instruction sheet for me? It would be most appreciated. Message me here for my contact info. Bob
  7. UPDATE: I have found a room in the LV area with roommates. You can 86 my request.
  8. When does voting end for the E-Board candidates? I haven't found a date on the website. Thank you.
  9. I am flying in from St. Louis on Wednesday morning 18 August. Flight, car rental, and convention registration all done. Just need a roommate to share room cost. I have an early flight on the Sunday morning after the convention (22 August). Anyone of you who can help, please let me know as soon as you can. If you have a room already, let me know the cost that I will help out with for you. Thank you in advance. Bob
  10. Anyone here have any experience with packing models for air travel? I am thinking about flying to Las Vegas for this year's Nationals. Looking for tips in this area. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.
  11. Bob, Thanks for the update. I will make sure the Region 14 chapters know about this. Bob D.
  12. I was an editor at Squadron/Signal Publications from early 1999 to early 2005, when Jerry Campbell dismissed me. I had good memories of Squadron Mail Order and the people who worked there. (While with Squadron/Signal, I helped proofread Mail Order's monthly flyers and annual catalog and helped with their semi-annual inventory.) I even ordered from them now and then. Most recently, I ordered two bottles of Vallejo paint from them last month, which arrived just days later in good order. I was aware of the problems Squadron has had in recent years, so the news of their apparent closing (temporarily?) really should not come as much of a surprise. I would agree with the comments about their website. They were slow to embrace the Internet and not very efficient when they did. Plus, I wondered what the point was of the collectables (die-cast models, plaques) they were selling. Not something a real scale modeling retailer would have on offer. In 2019, while in Liberty, Missouri for IPMS/West Central Missouri's contest, I was invited to visit the Sprue Brothers Models facility, which most impressed me with its efficiency and service. II have ordered from them on occasion (including last month) and would certainly order from them again if the need arose. While touring Sprue Brothers' warehouse, I mentioned to one of the principals there (I can't remember his name) that I had worked at Squadron, and he mentioned to me the problems they were having at the time (stock on hand, credit issues). I filed that note in my memory. It is sad to see Squadron go, but the same goes for Sears.
  13. Nick, thanks for getting back to me on this. Bob
  14. Can anyone help? I am wondering how to resize color templates from 1:350 scale to 1:400 scale for a ship model I am planning to work on. Specifically, I have the Heller 1:400 Gneisenau. If anyone here has any ideas, I would appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
  15. I am seeking acrylic clear coats (gloss, semigloss, clear) to use. It would be mostly spray painted. I have been mostly using ModelMaster Acryl clear varnishes, but since that line is being discontinued, I am seeking other options. Can anyone help me find the best ones to use, based on personal experience? Any help you can give is most welcome. Thank you in advance. Bob
  16. Thank you for the information. However, I am seeking markings for a USAAF C-46 for the model I'm working on. I appreciate you getting back to me, though.
  17. Seeking decals for the Williams Bros. 1:72 C-46 commando. I have the decals with the original (mid-1970s) release, and it has the blue of the US insignia too light. Plus, it's for a natural medal one and I want to do one in Olive Drab over Neutral Gray. I know Caracal Models has a sheet coming out sometime later, but I would like to get something sooner. I am planning to build the C-46 for a chapter display project. Any help in this matter would be most appreciated. Thank you in advance.44 Bob
  18. I recently bought the AMT 1:32 1963 Studebaker Avanti kit (AMT885/12). I wonder if any of you can help me regarding exterior and interior colors. Checking on http://www.theavanti.net (website of the Avanti Owners Association International), I found paint colors used for the Avanti, and upholstery and carpet color schemes for '63 Avantis. After seeing photos of one on The Vault Classic Cars (www.vaultcars.com/1963-avanti), I want to do one in Avanti Gold (Color Code P-6333, Rinshed-Nasson No. 63S72), with interior in Color Scheme 1 of Fawn (instrument board, upper door moulding and rear shelf), and Elk seats and center door panels). Can any of you tell me what model paints would best replicate Avanti Gold, Fawn, and Elk? I'm doing this kit for an out of the box contest in February. Thanks in advance for any help you can give me on this. Bob
  19. Neil, I received the instructions in my mail this past Saturday. Thank you very much! They will work very well for me. In fact, I started work on that kit that afternoon. Thank you once again. Happy Modeing! Bob
  20. Thanks, Neil. I just emailed my US Mail address to your home email. Thanks in advance! Bob
