  1. I just got off a phone call to Rustoleum. Believe it or not, they are now claiming...at least the lady I spoke with...that Rustoleum has not dropped Testors or Model Master! When you find the Testors link on their website, which is at the very bottom of their home page in fine print, the link takes you to the familiar testors.com website, showing all of the usual line of paint...including the entire range of enamels, acrylics and metalizers. According to the lady, she states that all of the colors are available, except for a few colors that were discontinued due to lack of demand. If t
  2. We all know how this miserable virus is affecting all of our local and regional meetings/contests and especially the 2020 National Convention. But there is a trickledown effect on many levels, including job losses, reduction in income, loss of all income, etc. One of the most crucial impacts...obviously...is food and the ability or lack of same to buy it. In my own area, just an hour or two ago, I was driving on a street when I ended up passing a multiblock long line of cars, as well an 18 wheeler in a parking lot with many more cars parked around it. Reason? Distribution of free food for
  3. Hello all, At the risk of being told this should have been posted somewhere else, I would like to announce my latest E-book. Available as a PDF, it contains 60 photos of the Lockheed F-4 and F-5 Photo Recon aircraft. Photo quality ranges from very good to very poor...obviously, since most photos were taken under combat conditions in the Pacific...but should provide a lot of ideas for aircraft markings and even vignetts/dioramas. And yes, the photos are printable. I'd appreciate y'all checking it out here, whether you buy it or just look at the web page. I will also be submitting a co
  4. Hello all, Last time I tried this I didn't get too many responses and...even worse...I can't find the responses I did get! Well, live and learn. This time I'm gonna put the results in a folder on my computer's hard drive so I can't lose'em!! Now to what I'm asking about: Please offer your thoughts as to the model or models you would like to see as step-by-step e-books (one kit to a book, please). Your response matters. See scalepublications.freeyellow.com for current e-books. All ebooks will be ava
  5. IPMS/USA History Project What do you know about the early days of your Society? The good, the bad and the ugly. Local chapters and national. How did it start...who was involved...would you like to know where the bodies are buried? I'm going to try to answer those questions and more. Despite the fact that I'm a founding member, I don't have all the answers, memories and documents...though I have a heckuva lot of'em. But this project is too big for one person. I need your help. Drop me a line...or a lot of them...to my email at tennexican@gmail.com and let me know what m
  6. It has been reported that the entire Testors lines...incuding Model Master...has been unceremoniously dropped. While I don't doubt this...Model Master has been dying drop by drop for some time...getting confirming information from multiple sources is something else again. As of a month or so ago, Rustoleum stated to me in a phone call that the latest updates as to which colors...if any... would not be produced had not yet been determined, but that Model Master was still being produced. They did advise me that one of their warehouses was temporarily closed due to Covid-19, which is why some
  7. I just got my first box of True North paint in. Haven't used it yet and know nothing about it beyond their website and a couple of telephone conversations with the company president. I'll let you know what I think about it as I start using it. About all I can tell you right now is that I'll be using it in my next Modelbuilding Guide ebook, I opened a couple of bottles and I like what I see, definitely thick enough to hand brush nicely, still thin enough to airbrush without being prethinned AND it isn't an acrylic. Oh, yeah, one more thing. The FS numbers are on the back of the label in fo
  8. If anyone reading this enjoys watching kit buildups or kit reviews on YouTube, you need to watch a video that can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXHYVWyAGcE&t=11s Why? Because the Federal Trade Commission has just announced that starting January 1, 2020 any video that is identified as made for kids but that they believe is not made for kids, the creator of that video will be fined $42,530 PER VIDEO. Incidentally, a kid is defined as anyone under the age of 13. So why should that matter to us? Because two of the categories that they will be especially focusing on will be
  9. It is now 10:41 a.m., October 28, 2019. I just got off the phone with Rustoleum and here is what I learned: 1. The Bulletin about Testors going away is fake and they are still trying to track down who posted it. Rustoleum didn't say so, but I would suggest the idiot is in a world of hurt whenever he or they are caught. 2. It is TRUE that international distribution will end EXCEPT for Canada. Again, Testors products will continue to be distributed in the U.S. AND CANADA. 3. It is TRUE that Aztek Airbrushes are gone. 4. It is TRUE that Metalizer products are gone.
  10. Today I stumbled across a post on the Oldie & Goldie Scale Models Facebook Group. Someone had posted an alleged Product Bulletin that was addressed to all Testors Distributors. Subject was the end of an era. If you want to look at the Bulletin yourself, go to Facebook and search for Oldie And Goldie Scale Models. Some are claiming that it is fake news and others don't know. BUT at least one person stated that what they did know...from a separate source...was that Rustoleum was definitely dropping Aztek Airbrushes along with the International and Military colors. Since the above i

    Dusty LAV

    Good evening, Have you noticed that most of the time LAV models aren't really all that dusty or dirty? Particularly the tire sidewalls? Well, I stumbled across an LAV operating in Afghanistan that looks like the paint shop was spraying dust. The tire treads and the sidewalls are pretty much the same color. For what it's worth, here's a photo that surfaced on Quora. Despite the fact that my primary interest is aircraft, this shot intrigues me to the point that I just might try building a model to match.
  12. Hi all, I assume we've all heard about the forthcoming 1/48th P-38G/H from Tamiya. If y'all are looking for a slew of P-38 reference material in one place, including 517 photos, I would remind you of my Lockheed P-38 Photo Gallery CD-ROM. It even includes some 40 photos of the XP-58 Chain Lightning. You can get all the information here. Oh, yeah, shipping is included in the price.
  13. Hi all, In the process of repainting and remarking a metal 1/48th B-24J, I discovered that a critical part is missing as the result of a burglary. The cockpit canopy. I'm assuming the canopy from a Monogram 1/48th B-24J would fit, so... If anyone has a scrapped Monogram B-24J that still has an intact canopy, I'd appreciate hearing from you. Don't need the rest of the model, just the canopy. Willing to pay a reasonable price. Richard
  14. Just a quick note to let y'all know about my latest e-book in The Marmo Method Modelbuilding Guide series. This one is #9 and is titled From An E-Book To A Hard Copy (or How To Print A PDF). Most of us 'older' modelers actually prefer a publication we can hold in our hands and that's the whole purpose of this installment. Now you can save money on the e-book but print any part or all of it whenever you want to or need to. Anyway, you can find the full particulars here. Check it out and let me know what you think. BTW, it's only 99 cents.
  15. Does anyone have a Monogram AT-6 Texan kit they'd be willing to part with for not a lot of money? Need it for an article in a British magazine...which doesn't pay much. Later, it may wind up as one of my Modelbuilding Guides. Would be happy to mention your name as to how I found the kit. Why not use my own? Simple. I was burglarized a year and a half ago and didn't think they took more than a couple or three kits. Wrong! Went looking for the T-6 today and discovered an entire box...or maybe two...of classic Monogram kits missing!!! Anyway, any help would be appreciated.
  16. It appears that Pledge is continuing to change the name of what we have known as Future, with the latest being Pledge Revive It Floor Gloss Original. Anyone know if this stuff is the same as our old, reliable Future or Pledge Multisurface?
  17. I'm proud to announce my latest E-book. This one is the result of a comment someone on this forum made after my C-46 E-book was finished. To wit: It would be nice to have some reference photos included in the Building Guide. File size limitations prevented that, but I've come up with a workaround. This E-book, intended as a companion to my C-46 Building Guide, contains 49 relatively high resolution historical photos of the C-46A. 22 are operational shots and the other 27 come from the Curtiss assembly line. They've all been enhanced to pull detail out of shadowed areas and can be enlarge
  18. I am proud to announce that my latest E-book is now available. The attached image should give you all the information. Any questions, don't hesitate to reply in this thread or send me a private message. And since a functioning hyperlink can't be inserted into an image, here are working links for your choice of E-book formats at smashwords.com or a printable PDF at scalepublications Now, who do I contact to submit a review copy?
  19. Just a quick post to let y'all know that my latest Marmo Modelbuilding Guide will be available within the next few days. #9 in the series, this one focuses on the 1/32nd Revell AH-!G HueyCobra. That's right, the one first released in 1967 and still the only 32nd scale kit ever produced of the original AH-1G design. The Guide adds a Cobra Company aftermarket cockpit and rocket pods, along with a scratchbuilt revetment wall to form a Viet Nam vignette. One more thing. The Guide subject wears the familiar SEA three tone camouflage. As far as I've been able to determine, only four Cobras eve
  20. Hi all, I'm back with another request. I've finally added an announcement video on Youtube for my Williams Brothers C-46 E-book. If y'all would go to my Youtube channel, watch the video...it's only two minutes long...and then let me know what you think, I'd really appreciate it. Be honest. What do you like or don't and why in either case. You can find my channel here , then click on the C-46 boxtop thumbnail. Thanks in advance for your help. Richard
  21. I'm posting this so you won't keep wondering when the next installment is going to show up. It won't. If you're curious, private message me.
  22. Hi all, For those who would be interested, I just today activated my revised and ...hopefully... improved Author's website. You can find it at richardmarmo.com I would be most appreciative if y'all would check it out and let me know what you think of it, good or bad. Just be constructive whichever way you lean. Thanks in advance.
  23. Hi all, Here's the latest on the E2C 2000. The canopy was masked with Montex Mini Mask (# SM 48321). Not only do they fit perfectly, you get a double set so you can mask both the inside and outside if you choose. I got mine from Sprue Brothers, but the Montex website is montex-mask.com. One advantage to Kinetic's canopy approach is that it includes a section of the fuselage. Since the canopy isn't a perfect fit...probably the result of a replacement part due to a short shot in the kit...it allows you to putty and sand any problem seams with relative ease.
  24. As promised, Part 8 of the Kinetic E-2C 2000 with revised photos is now available for your viewing pleasure. You can ignore Part 8 and 8A. As usual, comments are not only welcome but encouraged.
