  1. Hi I just got signed up yesterda. I am mostly a sci-fi builder and yes Gundam mostly. However I am looking to expand keeping the hobby interesting. If you're interested seeing my work, you can find it on Instagram at cobrapla. Happy to be here and looking forward to meeting all of you.
  2. My name is Jim Pariseau. I am a new member. Been building models since I was 5 years old (54 years ago). I live in South Burlington, Vermont. Mostly I build 1/48 scale airplanes. My ever increasing stash is up to about 200 models. I have finally realized I will never build them all. But always in the market to purchase new kits and after market accessories. You can say I am a compulsive buyer. Looking to hear from other modelers. Does anyone know why Vermont does not have any good hobby shops?
  3. The disadvantage of spray-painting in North Carolina is being at the mercy of the weather - it recently got warm enough to paint, and I got a few body shells done, but with so many Pine and Oak trees, I now have to wait for pollen season to wrap up. Next on the agenda is a Revell 70 Chevelle SS 454, a Polar Lights Hawaiian Charger funny car, an MPC Donnie Allison stock car, an AMT 55 Nomad, and an AMT 62 Corvette gasser. BIG PLANS I SAY......BIG PLANS! For the Nomad wagon, I used Tamiya's new Orange Metallic with a Gunmetal roof. Everything in between will be all chromed out. I plan to morph this ride into a sweet custom surf wagon with some sick wheels and fat whitewall rubber and a slightly lower ride, but a couple of details were holding me up >>>NO surfboards or camping supplies...so I broke out the DAS air-dry clay I got from Askew-Taylor in Raleigh, broke off a few lumps, warmed it in my hands, laid it out and hit it with my steel pipe like I was making biscuits. I cut out several boards and fins and curved them a little to dry like that. Had to make them larger and thicker, since I knew I was gonna have some carving & sanding to do later to make them convincing. (I started out using sheet balsa for the boards which worked OK, but too thin for 1/25 scale). So far I have 1 clay board smoothed & sanded, and 1 Boogie Board completed. The boogie board was painted gloss light blue, ankle strap attached, and random areas touched with clear acrylic and dusted with baby powder for remnants of a day at the beach....plus it smells good too Also finished some beach towels & a firewood bundle. To be continued.............
