    Well, yes, but as I get older I also find that I have less and less patience for people asking questions, getting the answers they don't like and then strutting that their ignorance is as valid as someone's knowledge. Vedran
  2. 1/48 fiat cr-42 what's the best kit

    The big H had the CA2 CR.42AS kits on 1/3rd price or lower for a long time. It will be probably re-released by Special Hobby, CR.32 has already been released for around 20 EUR, a steal. Vedran
  3. The Cheapskates Guide to Modelling Tools.

    Thank you for the link. But IMO your's is better. I've seen a few people use the Flightpose stand for painting, and your home-made stand is closest to that. Cheers, Vedran
  4. The Cheapskates Guide to Modelling Tools.

    Would you please share the link to the other stand? Vedran
  5. A Few Mustang Mk.i Questions

    For the ultimate impovement for the AM kit check out http://www.geocities.jp/yoyuso/p51a/p51a-1.html Browse at your own peril! @ ColFord Thank you for the most exhaustive writeup. There was talk on BM about a definitive soon-to-be-released book on RAF Allison Mustangs - any info on that, gents? Vedran
  6. Martlet Mk.I

    A solvent was used that fused the decal to the paint, if I could just remember where this information was posted earlier this year, here or on HS? Vedran
  7. Hasegawa 1/48 ki-43ii

    Yes, he has not yet picked-up a kit or kits, but he will. That's the wait. In the meantime, check out his superb Hayate analysis. Vedran
  8. Hasegawa 1/48 ki-43ii

    Hi Mike, neither do I, so I use the Google Translate. It's not perfect but it gives the gist of the article. And the photos and drawings and dreaded red lines speak for themselves. Of interest for this topic there is a hint of a hump in the cockpit area as shown on photos. Can't wait to see how it all ends. Vedran
  9. Hasegawa 1/48 ki-43ii

    Heh. http://www.geocities.jp/yoyuso/ki43d/ki43-1.html This will be interesting Vedran
  10. The asking price is a bit steep for that. There is a German company that makes 1/48 transparent fuselages for RC models, maybe a cheaper option for the muj bus conversion. Vedran
  11. Now where did I state that? Manufacturers sadly make mistakes, be it bad research or no research or whatever their reason is. You can buy kits blindly or make an informed choice, it's up to you. Vedran
  12. If Waroff's post above isn't enough, browse through this. http://www.geocities.jp/yoyuso/p51a/p51a-1.html I don't do 1/72, but I would double check the Brengun Yak-1 nose before committing my money. Vedran
  13. F4F-4 Wildcat length

    BD1944, send an e-mail to Jun Temma, he uses both data from manufacturers and his own photogeometry analysis. Below is the link for the English version of his equisite 1/72 FM-2 build. http://www.geocities.jp/yoyuso/fm2/fm2e-1.html Vedran
  14. So we're to blame, not the manufacturer? They messed up and for whatever their reason is, it was not the criticsm from modelers. Vedran
  15. I won't touch anything with gel time less than 10 minutes. Q1: Get the thinnest resin you can, consictency of milk or similar. Mix. Fill the mould. Vaccum. After a few seconds stop the vacuum and let the air in. This should first suck the air pocket into the resin and second backflush the resin into any cavity sou it can form a smooth unbroken skin. I do all my mixing in disposable plastic syringes. Open it, plug the bottom, pour in the A and B components, put the plunger back in, shake a few times until you get an uniform colour, squeeze into the mold. If any additional pigment is used, it gets mixed into the component A before the component B is added. Vedran
