    Revell Wirblewind RV3267 1/72 kit release

    I think we can probably conclude that the MaCo tools are safe.....Well, at least as safe as Revell.
  2. All being well I'll be rolling with the T-54 tomorrow, probably take me 48hrs minimum before fitting the track.....Any advice for OKB resin, I'm planning on having hot water and a hairdryer to hand, but if you have any other tips I'm all ears, they're far too beautiful & a bit too costly to casually cock up! PS - I was poking around on the Modelcollect site and I noticed this page: http://www.modelcollect.com/shoes PPS - No I don't know what it has to do with shoes either?

    2 Big & Too Heavy!

    Still plugging away.....Here's the underside, with the lower wing part reshaped to the best of my ability: With the lower wing glued solidly in place I'm setting up the dihedral, one wing at a time, this is the second: Once that one's hardened up I'll fill what I can with plastic card slices and what I can't with putty.....Putting a NMF over this lot's going to be a bundle of joy! Could use some more recommendations for aerosol metallic paints for this (Tamiya AS-12 is all so far).....I'd like to try using a couple of mildly contrasting and one more strongly contrasting colours, if only to distract the eye from all the panel lines that fade in and out of existence on the underside.

    Lots of new arrivals this week

    There's a thought.....

    Bashar Al Squarehead's Syrian (& Iraqi) Armour

    There are three sets of ERA in that kit, you only need one for a model unless you are planning on deceiving ignorant capitalists:

    V2 Rocket, Hanomag SS-100 and Miellerwagen - 1:72 Takom

    I think that's from the Special Armor range. @Paul A H So if you were going to buy just one V2 launch array, would it be Takom or Special Armor (considering just the elements that are in this box, compared to their equivalents)?

    V 2 rocket being transported diorama.

    @bazer Have you discovered W&N Aerosol Matt Acrylic Varnish? It's a bit scary when you first use it (goes on thick and takes an age to dry compared to other similar products, also looks kind of like it's blooming while it dries).....It leaves a dead flat finish, this stuff will turn silver into aluminium!

    Republic P-47 Thunderbolt STGB II Chat

    If you do decide to go for a P-47N do not get the Italeri kit! My issue is disguising the godawful fit on the underside, I think I'm going to have to use the centreline P-38 tank just to hide what I can.....I'll stick some photos in my thread later, I've completely had enough of it for now.

    Republic P-47 Thunderbolt STGB II Chat

    Bombs I can do, but rockets are out (I've closed the wing halves without drilling the necessary holes).....TBH things aren't going well right now, so this information might be a bit superfluous. Do you ever see P-47Ns in a finish other than NMF? I'm having severe doubts about my ability to pull off NMF with the Italeri kit, the fit is shocking.....I've been fettling the wings all night. but they still only fit in one spot out of three and they are utterly without dihedral!

    Biological Oriented Bot v1.0 or Bob.

    Asimo's evil cousin.....Very smart indeed.

    Imperial Probe Droid

    Beep! Looks great, in a menacing way.....Nice to see old DN-LD making a return too.

    Republic P-47 Thunderbolt STGB II Chat

    What would one most expect to find under the wings & belly of a P-47N? My kit has a selection of stuff, but most of it looks more suitable for a ground attack Thunderbolt.....There are a trio of big P-38 style tanks IIRC, presumably they would be plumbed similarly to the more conventional types above? Also what's left on the hardpoint once the tank's been dropped.....The P-47N would look kind of nice clean, but given it's role I'd guess maximum tankage would be the norm?

    Studio Scale UFO Interceptor

    Lovely. How are you doing the panel lines?
  14. I reckon that looks the business, but I'd be very inclined to give it a dust wash, actually I'd probably do several given it's area of operations.

    Army of Ghosts

    What about using a really vivid lime green for the highlighting rather than a pale hue.....Go for the Scooby-Doo ghost effect?
