  1. Thanks Dave, Yeah those are the kit stickers. Thanks, Duke.
  2. Built last Monday, painted last Tuesday, decaled last Wednesday. Then it sat until today, when I received the canopy masks I ordered. Finished that bit off today. Hasegawa 1/48 Bf-109K-4. Built OOB except for Eduard PE seat harness. CSI/Creos acrylics.
  3. Decaled it yesterday. Not much today, I have a splitting headache.
  4. It ain't Saturday, but I did buy this kit last Saturday at the SVASM show. I started it yesterday morning, and here it is ready for decals. Hasegawa's 1/48 Bf-109K-4. Gunze-Sangyo (GSI/Creos) acrylics, applied w/an Iwata Custom Micron-B.

    FOD covers

    Try this: Hold a piece of paper over the inlet opening (easier if the airframe isn't together yet). Rub a pencil around the whole area of the inlet, holding the pencil flat against the paper Once you get an outline of the inlet on the paper, cut it out and trace around it on whatever you're making the cover out of. Cut it out, and.... Viola'! A FOD cover. Make a handle out of stretched sprue or whatever. Hope that helps!
  6. I was surfing around online , and stumbled across this pic from a model entered at the recent KZOO show. It looks pretty sharp, and I wanted to share!!!!!!! I wish I could get my airplanes to turn out like this one!!!!!!!!! Posted from:

    KZOO Tank

    I was surfing around online , and stumbled across this pic from a model entered at the recent KZOO show. It looks pretty sharp, and I wanted to share!!!!!!! I wish I could get my armor to turn out like this one!!!!!!!!! Posted from:
  8. Slapped this one together yesterday, and painted it today. About 2 hours construction time, amd maybe 3 hours painting today. I finished it with a Burnt Umber wash, Cadmium Yellow drybrushing, and some pastels on the tracks. The left hull number seems to be a little silvered.....
  9. Very nice, Ying!! I love the chipped paint effects, particularly on the wings. The NMF on the bottom is great, also. Very nicely-executed. JK
  10. Well, I found this: Bob's Buckles And I found this: http://wwi-cookup.com/albatros/modelling_h...urnbuckles.html http://ipmsstockholm.org/magazine/2001/11/...ech_rigging.htm
  11. Hey, she's beautiful, just sayin' I'm sure she gets her good looks from her Dad!! Those turnbuckles look great! Injection-molded? Also, is "S" scale close to 1/32? A dozen for $3 is a good deal....Imma have to get up the stones to start my WNW LVG. Haven't bothered with it, because it's "too nice" of a kit....I don't think I'd do it justice.
  12. Does the kit come with an engine, and removable panels? Otherwise, if you're adding them as aftermarket, it's no longer "OOB" according to IPMS rules. You also mentioned you wanted to "add some detailing"....again, when you do it's no longer OOB. Regardless, I'd like to see some pics of it as you do the project!
  13. Thanks for the link....Erin is pretty hot! (Now, where do I find the turnbuckles???)
  14. By George, you've got it! Great work! I started an Otaki a few days before NATS as well...Bf-109G. It's on hold until I finish the Koster vac XP-72 Ultrabolt. Hope my 109 turns out 1/2 as good as yours!
  15. Thanks, guys! Clare, my goal was to finish it for Phoenix....missed it by a week, LOL! It was great seeing you and the Mrs.
  16. Academy's scaled-down Hornet, built OOB. The Swiss Tiger Meet markings are from Zotz, while the fuel tank stripes and all stencils are from the kit (Cartograph!) I added Bare Metal Foil to the oleo struts. Finished in Life Color acrylics on the airframe, Tamiya acrylics on the undercarriage. Semi-gloss finish is custom-mixed, and Pro-Modeler wash in the panel lines. Tried to finish for Phoenix, to no avail. Enjoy....
  17. I actually started an Otaki Bf-109G 2 days before flying to Phoenix......
  18. Well, it was waiting for me when I got home from Phoenix this afternoon, along with the two PE sets I ordered. All in all, roughly 2 weeks from order to delivery.
  19. That is extremely cool...!
  20. I ordered one a couple of days ago. From Japan. They're scheduled to ship July 31st,so, we"ll see. They haven't charged my card yet. There's a build up article in the current SAMI issue.
  21. WOW!!!! The Master strikes again!!!
  22. Here's a link to Jim Rotramel's article on how he painted his 1/72 Raptor. I saw it at the VABCH NATS, and it's pretty spectacular.
  23. Nice, Mike! I've had my eye on this kit.....
