  1. Thanks Charles! Naaaah...Vallejo Model Air is brainless. I don't even thin it. I just squeeze some into the cup, and start spraying.
  2. Here's Trumpeter's 1/48 Sea Fury, built OOB w/ the exception of Eduard PE seat harness. Airbrushed with MM Acryl, & Vallejo Model Air acrylics. Nice,.easy build with gosh-darned yuckky decals. The "invasion" stripes are part decal, part paint. Enjoy.
  3. Trying to get back into things, after a 3-month hiatus due to severe personal reasons. This is the kit Tamiya released last year. I don't generally do Japanese subjects, but was curious about this "buzz" on this kit. It's all true, and well-deserved. The most sublime model aeroplane kit I've ever glued together (!) It's OOB with Tamiya Acrylics/Alclad II Undercoating/Lifecolor Oatake Blue. Enjoy, JK
  4. Another one off of the bench, after a late 2009 start! The Italeri re-pop of Occidental's(?) old Spitfire Mk. IX, OOB. Went together exceptionally well, with only a little filler at the wing roots. Painted with Testor's MM Enamels. Enjoy, JK
  5. I hate moving parts. This stuff is complex enough as it is....
  6. From the Tamiya website....http://www.tamiya.com/english/products/35303jsu152/index.htm Not much information, yet. Stay tuned.

    German 88 kit

    Thanks John. I tried to get that frame to open for a half-hour, and couldn't.

    German 88 kit

    This one, hands down.
  9. Don't mask it, CrazyD...just kick it freestyle, Yo! These FineMold kits are sweet. I used one about 4 years ago, when I did a 1/72 Mistel-1 conversion using the 109F2, Italeri Mistel set, and AMT Ju-88. Sawed the front off of the Italeri kit, and transplanted it to the back 2/3 of the AMT kit. Still one of my fave projects, ever.Then I built the one above last Spring. I may have one more left, but I can't remember.
  10. Very cool! I didn't even know Airfix made a Farm House...:)
  11. Very nicely executed! I've heard nothing but good stuff about this kit...Imma have to get one, I think! JK
  12. Tamiya Thin Liquid Cement also works very well to dissolve the casting "ridges" on DS track and figures.
  13. GORGEOUS Phantom!!!!! I, too, have always liked Luftwaffe Phantoms...you've certainly represented them well! JK

    Always a fan of your work, JB....but, this is one of the best I've seen!!!!
  15. And, it makes a scrumptious hat!!! Actually, the lead foil from the neck of a good wine bottle makes great seat harnesses. I've used it for flags, too!
  16. Great work as usual...especially the cockpit!
  17. Wow...you guys have work spaces nicer than my living room!! Here's where I hide the bodies....
  18. When I read the header, I thought Tamiya was releasing an A-4!! Free scooter kits? That's sweet! One more reason I wish I'd just gone to Columbus.

    Yep. That kid sure can build! Polite, too. :)
  20. Very nicely executed. My favorite Hellcat markings, too!
  21. It's true. An amazing amount of heat displaced by the rapid curing reaction. I've burned my hands, and nearly started a workbench fire with a paper-towel/superglue spill. Damn, did that smoke! It;s a wonder I get the things done that I do....
