    Primarily 1/48th scale from between-the-wars to now. Also dabble in 1/35th armor, 1/24 & 1/25th autos and the occasional 1/700 or 1/350 ship.

    Being a retired P-3 aircrewman, MPA is also a major interest.

  1. Not to be considered as a fine example of modeling, or authoritative in any sense, but this is my nostalgia build of the old Monogram Spitfire IX using Aeromaster decals. Painted using Modelmaster Dark Earth and Dark Green (IIRC) and (again IIRC) Humbrol Azure Blue. If nothing else it will show what the overall scheme looks like.
  2. I don't envy you this project. I built a couple of Pegasus kits back when they first came out. <sigh> I made a complete hash of them. My skills and spares box weren't quite up to the challenge.
  3. Academy P-26 = Hobbycraft P-26, as far as the plastic goes.
  4. A Wapiti!?!? I could end up breaking my self-imposed ban on buying g any new 1/48 biplane kits!
  5. Have you looked at Xtracolour? Although I like their product, getting the paint here in the US can be problematic.
  6. They probably get it in the pod, then when ready to arm, they'll go to the rear of each pod, seat the rocket fully, then hook up whatever wiring needs to be attached.
  7. So did the observer operate as a Navigator? To me, it wouldn't make sense to have that console, a compass repeater, but no RADAR display.
  8. Is there anything from the Revell Ventura that could be useful? I know that it's a VERY different aircraft, but maybe the turret or other details could be used.
  9. Not really up to today's standards, but it is buildable.
  10. After Tamiya did the G4M in 1/48, I kept hoping for them to do a G3M. Unfortunately, I'm still waiting.
  11. IIRC, the Classic Airframes and HiPM kits came out around the same time. Apparently, neither is an easy build and there isn't much to choose between the two.
  12. I'm pretty sure I've seen one available, but I'm not 100% sure who made it.
  13. Great photos,Steve! Thanks for sharing.
  14. If you suspect the decals at all, try using an image on the sheet you're not planning to use as a test. Then you won't be surprised when you go to use that very visible (and hopefully not irreplaceable) upper wing roundel and it falls apart.
  15. If you want to do it, I say go ahead, make the naysayers provide evidence that shows you are wrong.
