    Future E-Book Subjects?

    In order to find the best direction for my Modelbuilding Guide E-book series, I need some input. Specifically, what would y'all like to see in the way of step-by-step single subject e-books along the lines of my recent Williams Bros C-46 and upcoming Kinetic E-2C 2000. Primary interest: Preferred scale: Classic kits with aftermarket upgrades: Latest & Greatest Specific kit of interest: Other comments: To see what I've already covered, please see scalepublications.freeyellow.com
  2. Ok...quick question and am hoping someone can help...I'm at the point on the Abrams where I have to decide whether I'm using Tusk I or Tusk II...the first looks very similar to what the Bradley has, so I'm inclined to use the II...but would Tusk II kits have been present at the same time as the M2A3 had Busk III armor? Early Google searches have not turned anything up...

    Need Help on Panzer Colors

    Tru-Color Paint is looking for any help we can get on getting the correct colors for German AFV's used in WWII. Information on all the color schemes on all types of vehicles wanted - particularly Panzer and all other tanks used by the Germans. All years of WWII are of interest to us. The information will be used to make accurate paint colors for release in late 2018. If anyone has information or wants to help develop the colors for this area of WWII models please contact us via this thread, call or email us. We look forward to anyone supplying data that we can use or pointing us in the right direction. We realize that color chips would be nearly impossible to obtain, but if anyone has a paint color or colors that is considered "accurate", we would be interested in knowing about it (them). It is possible that we could send some plastic scraps or polystyrene sheet material to anyone to paint a swatch for us to match. Just send us details of what you have and your address for us to send materials for you to paint. Martin Cohen, PhD Tru-Color Paint P.O. Box 74524 Phoenix, AZ 85087-4524 714-488-9779 email: tru.colorpaint1@yahoo.com

    Hi from Phoenix

    Hi there from hot, dry northern Phoenix, AZ. Tru-Color Paint here. We are pleased to announce to the military modeler that our new line of military colors for armor, U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy ships will be start shipping on Oct. 1, 2017. In the initial release there will be 14 colors: 6 for U.S. Navy ships, 4 each for U.S. Armor and U.S. Air Force. Then each month thereafter our intent is to release 4-10 new colors until the end of 2019. By the time we are through with this we will have added over 200 military colors to our vast product line. The entire Tru-Color Paint product line is manufactured in Phoenix, AZ. It is a solvent based paint, similar to an enamel, but it does not cure. All of the colors are stocked in 1 oz. ( $ 5.69 list) and 2 oz. ( $10.25) bottles. We pride ourselves on producing the most accurate modeling paints on the market (over 400 railroad colors and 100 automobile colors attest to this). We are grateful to many of the IPMS members who have helped us develop many of the colors not governed by Federal Standard color chips. All colors are matched to color chips from various sources (Snyder & Short for U.S. Navy 1939-46) or matched by experts in their field: Kevin Wenker for Bi-planes, Ethan Dunsford for U.S. Armor and others. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reply to this forum. Martin Cohen PhD Tru-Color Paint P.O. Box 74524 Phoenix, AZ 85087-4524 714-488-9779

    Hello from Oklahoma. I have been building models of all sorts for too many years to talk about. I have been heavy into Plastic Models for around 35 years. Mainly Military Aircraft and German Armor as well as a few Ships of various types. I love the hobby and most of the people I have met while attending local and national shows. I have been a member of IMPS for many years, but have not been on their website forums until now. Hello to all and I hope everyone enjoys a happy and healthy new year.
  14. Greetings fellow modelers. While I have been a member of IPMS/USA for some time and am an active member of IPMS/OC here in Southern California, I have not as of yet posted anything in the forum, nor attached any photos of some of my builds. My main focus is on World War One aircraft, and occasionally, armor as well. The "WWIM" is for World War I Modeler. In fact, if you have time and are interested, I invite to check out my website - http://wwimodeler.peoplecatcher.net to view albums of some of my models. Today I am attaching photos of my recently completed Roland D.VIa from Wingnut Wings (1:32 Scale). As many of you know, the WNW kits are second to none and are driving an increased interest in World War One modeling. I welcome your imput, comments, critique, and advice. Thanks!
