    Hobbyboss wins this round. Great detail OOB and excellent fit all around. Mark
  3. The text in the bottom left of the box art says “USS Independence 1995”. Mark
  4. Looks like we'll be getting a Pucara from Kinetic soon. Source: https://www.facebook.com/Kineticmodel/posts/921764501323995 Mark
  5. Applied straight to bare plastic. Mark
  6. Thanks for the OOB review. I'm in the process of building this kit and I can attest that the fitting of the parts are excellent for the most part. However, I found difficulty attaching the road wheels to the suspension arms because the polycaps were too small for their axles. Trying to force them in with brute force was not an option as the arms are rather skinny and would warp under pressure. In the end I chopped about 3/4 off each arm and attached the wheels directly to them with cement. Also, the tracks with their 6 sprue attachment points in dished areas, are a bit of a pain to clean up. I also bought and applied Meng's zimmerit decal sheet. It goes on really well with Mr Mark Setter and Mr Mark Softer. For stubborn spots, a touch of Tamiya Extra Thin cement worked really well to make the zimmerit adhere to the plastic surface. Mark
  7. Looks like the kits will be on their way to those who pre-ordered real soon. Mark
  8. Looks like the next boxing will come with crew. Mark

    You can find more photos of the models and the event here. https://www.facebook.com/pg/spruecutterscom/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1567575239955675 https://airfix2017.spruecutters.com/gallery By the way, the Skycrane was 100% scratch-built. Mark
  10. Wow. That's quite a lot of excellent information here. I'm most definitely taking notes and will apply them when I build another Spitfire somewhere down the line. Much thanks everyone! Mark
  11. Thanks for all the feedback. I'll take note of the stuff mentioned and apply them on my next Spitfire build. Just got the 1/32 Revell Mk.IX from the store today. Mark
  12. Thanks for the kind words, everyone. Mark
  13. Eduard kit built OOB with paint masks and decals from AML. Hope you enjoy the photos! Mark
  14. Lockheed T33A

    Hi, that's some good progress there. But may I suggest that you take your photos from a distance and then crop to the area that you want to highlight? It looks like you are taking the shots closer than the minimum focus distance of your camera and this is causing them to be badly out of focus. Aside from that, you're doing some phenomenal work on a NMF which is never easy to replicate. Keep it up! Mark
