  5. Revell ‘Tweedy Pie’

    ha ha - you guys .... www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-dre1.htm
  6. Revell ‘Tweedy Pie’

    about two years ago, I finally gave up on this kit. but in 1966, it was the best, most detailed kit, by the company and Man I admired most. shows how perspective changes in 50 years.
  7. Repair 1/43

    I thought the scale must be much bigger until seeing the craft stick frame; very nicely done!
  8. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    I think keeping everything in one (this) thread is a good idea. when doing research, sometimes a person is not aware of periferal things which make a considerable difference in outcome. having these things mentioned as the research progresses can avoid "taking a wrong turn".
  9. creativity & imagination

    disclaimer for the squeamish: not sure where to put this, but I think in a general sense it speaks of creativity, and that's what Hobbies are all about. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=upwyB9YegdU
  10. Fonderie Miniature LCVP Instructions (1/35)

    not sure if this is any help: https://modelingmadness.com/scott/misc/ships/lcvppreview.htm
  11. nice execution of an infrequently seen vehicle. also nice to see something that is not "weathered into submission" as seems to be the current trend. the brass is just right - not too shiny and not to dull. the wood finishes look fine. the buttons & tufts on the seat might stand out if a light wash of umber were passed over.
  12. GAZ-69 1/35 BRONCO

    I had never seen this vehicle; cute as a new puppy. nice work in the engine bay, too.
  13. I would say you pretty well did that - and then some! beautiful job.
  14. Ahnenerbe

    great individual details and "smashing" all together presentation.
  15. Zetor 25 - 1:35 of SKP Models

    ah; saved the best for last!
  16. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    not to worry. "forum communication" is not a perfect means, and we have different cultural and modeling experiences. you have every bit the right to be miffed at what you believe have been shorts for your efforts, and I as much to say "it's a great model - so stop worrying!" perhaps reality is somewhere between?
  17. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    of course you are an artist and have created a beautiful model. I was, in a satirical moment, responding to your suggestion I had not the ability to observe what you had modified. everyone is Way too sensitive these days..... cheesh
  18. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    if all that is the case, and I've done a fair share of zooming, perhaps you would consider cleaning up the paint on the top of the radiator. the steering arm needs a bit of smoothing, and there are several grille bars not quite parallel. I find it quite disconcerting ... (tongue-in-cheek, of course)
  19. Fiat 806: research and scratchbuilds

    you do realize hardly anyone notices these things but you. time to step away and take a deep breath; everything is fine as it is.
  20. I've found that to be met mixed; best not.

    how do I do this? searching above title produced nothing. thanks
  22. for the investment of money and time, is there a better choice for hull selection? I understand the display may dictate, but if that is taken out of the equation, is one type preferred over the other?
  23. Clyde Puffer

    granted. but a reread indicates I would not be attempting a scratchbuild nor an exact replica. I consider asking questions in an online forum as part of my research. if my questions are annoying, just don't answer. that'll fix me!
