  1. Academy 1/48 MH-53 Sea Dragon

    Just saw this thread as I'm glad I did. The MH-53 is a great helo and this kit is the super. I love the scratch build you are doing. πŸ‘πŸ»
  2. Harrier

    Wow, some nice work going on here. The tail looks awesome. I'll follow alongπŸ˜‰
  3. Tamiya 1/32nd Viper

    Just catching up on your progress bro. Glad to see you are dry fitting everything πŸ˜‰ Now, as for your pit...I have the same pit but I have yet to use it. Instead of trying to explain you what you need to do just check out the link below. I found it for you and this individual also used the Aires pit and shows clearly where you need to cut in order to fit. However, from reading through this thread I found out this set also deals with shrinkage issues. 😞 http://www.arcforums.com/forums/air/index.php?/topic/295072-f-16c-barak-with-goodies/&page=2#comment-2826506
  4. Boy looking at that bottle of detol brings bad memories. I can already smell it and I haven't seen it in 20 years. Of course, it's the first time seeing it being used to clean models instead if wounds πŸ˜†
  5. Just saw your thread Antti. You are onto a great start already. Interesting to see you have found some factory drawings of this icon. It's a must for any aviation modeler to have one sitting in their shelf. So, I will follow along and enjoy your build. Now don't shy away from posting as many photographs as this thread can hold Mike
  6. I saw this thread before but didn't clink into it as this subject isn't my cup of tea. However, tonight I read the title bit more carefully as I saw the 1/32 and decided to look inside...and glad I did...H-e-l-l-o! It is still not the subject I'm into as I don't model prop much, but your skills...Wow!! they are worth seeing in action. You have talent my friend and I'll follow along to see if I can learn something from this COOL work. Mike
  7. Nice work on the rivets. Yes, those archer rivets are pretty easy to use and create a convincing result. You are doing great and I think, for me at least, this will be the most detailed Sea King yet.
  8. Tamiya 1/32nd Viper

    Yep, WP stuff is pretty good. I would let you have mine (SP), but unfortunately I only have one myself. Hopefully, WP will reissue them soon. As for your build, I think you'll be fine....just don't be in hurry to glue to all at once. Measure twice cause it pays so nice...in the end that is
  9. Just saw this thread, and I must say it's.......totally awesome and I love the extra info that I don't normally see in most wip threads. I have couple off these hasegawa kits and they are very nice in this scale, but I agree with few guys here that we need on in 1/35 or 32. It will be huge but well worth the plastic Anyway, great work so far and a must follow along. So, keep up the good work
  10. Tamiya 1/32nd Viper

    Tamiya Viper is heck of kit. I have couple in my stash to build...just need the time. Have you consider and special markings or what's in the box? Can't wait to follow along. Good Luck Mike
  11. I've been thinking about grabbing this kit for a while. Just haven't pulled the trigger, so I'll follow along and see your work helps me twist my arm into getting one soon Mike
  12. U-991 1/72 Type VIIc U-Boat - Revell

    Holy cow, look at that deck and tower. This by far, hands down, the best sub model I have ever seen. You are very skillful model my friend. I sure will hope that you never get burn out with your wip as I'm loving it and learning a lot. Thanks for sharing your work Mike
  13. U-991 1/72 Type VIIc U-Boat - Revell

    Simply outstanding! Your 3D parts are super and adds a lot to the tower. Mike
  14. Would like a new forum option "Mark all as read"

    Mike, as long as your new forum can works with iPads then I'm good. There is a model car forum I use to visit often, but after the face lift things went down south quick. A lot of guys, including myself, couldn't respond within their threads. Made for a lot of bo bo. Just saying!
  15. Is that what the gun loaders were nick named? If so, it fits
