  1. Beautiful model. How do you create the photo plate for the base?
  2. Sorry to hear about your health issues, Pete. Glad to see you post something super-cool.
  3. Thanks Mark, your work is great! I love seeing peoples' year-end reviews too.
  4. Here's what I completed in 2022...9 pieces (1.3/month). Certainly not as prolific as my years in the 2000s, but I've learned to slow down and address the minutia more closely. Still, I feel like the older I get, and the more experience I gain (20+ years not counting the 10+ as a kid) the worse I get. I suppose with my busy work schedule and Homelife, 9 is pretty damned good. Goals for 2023 include mastering the Cameo Silhouette 4 plotter/cutter, as the plan is to mask/paint as many markings as possible. Also, a 1/32 Bf-109 extravaganza with all the Barracuda Cast resin detail parts made for this particular kit. Cheers!
  5. Thanks Gil, I appreciate it! Regarding the blue surrounds, I found this: "The Insignia Red outline was replaced with an Insignia Blue outline through the amendment of Army-Navy aeronautical specification AN-I-9 on 14 August 1943. This was followed by an amendment to Technical Order 07-1-1, issued on 24 September 1943, for units in the field. On some US Navy aircraft in the Pacific the blue outline was lighter than the insignia blue."
  6. Tamiya 1/72 Chance-Vought F4U-1A Corsair. Piloted by LT(jg) Doris "Chico" Freeman, VF-17 Jolly Rogers. He would claim two victories with VF-17 and an additional seven with VF-84. Improvements include: Quinta Studios Cockpit. Aires Landing Flaps. Ceramic Wire Antenna. Blanked off Trailing Edges. EagleCals decals. The oil tapes and wing walks are Tamiya decals from the kit, and were the worst Tamiya decals I've ever used. Shattered, tore, etc. The oil tapes are silvered around the edges, despite my best efforts. Oh, well...on to the next one.
  7. Pics and menu look like a nice, semi-upscale place. Wondering how the food is?
  8. I had no idea EZ Line came in different colors. I'd recommend ceramic wire.
  9. I can't look at this without my sunglasses!
