  1. Yes, I would LOVE to build a FedEx Triple 7 someday. Thanks for the Aluminum tape idea. Someone had actually told me about it a few days earlier. Go figure. Update - So I ended up using plastic stock from Evergreen for the braces n' such. Its a lot less expensive than I had thought. Next up will be to prime, sand, fill, and paint... Hopefully Thanks, Nick
  2. Hey Guys, So for awhile now I've been quite intrigued with modeling. At this point I'm not the best (Nowhere near in fact) but, I love to to try. Being an airliner nut I've always wanted to build a scaled down flying model of the real thing. Since I like detail I wanted to add a cargo bay with opening cargo doors and such. Well a cargo bay needs cargo right? I started researching cargo for the certain jet I wanted to build and decided upon an LD3 container. Here is my inspiration, Last one isn't FedEx but its the one that started it all. This brings us to the point at which I'm at. I've got the basic structure done. Basic wood, glue, sand, fill, prime, fill, sand, prime, sand. Here is the problem as of now. Originally I was going to use foil for the aluminum edge braces, but when cutting the foil (No matter how new the blade is) the edges became jagged. Next I thought I'd use a heavy duty craft paper: the paint would not stick. Plus, the idea of using paper just seemed cheap to me. This is where you guys come in. What should I use? I was think extruded plastic? Can you get that in a 90 degree bend? Anyways any suggestions are very welcome! -Thanks, Nick
  3. Amazing! Thanks guys. Are they going to be re-worked kits? Because the RB B-25 is not WW2 stock. -Nick
  4. Does anyone know of any decals for the Red Bull B-25 bird? Or any other Red Bull war birds for that matter? When I first say the Mitchell I had thought that the Red Bull logo plastered of the side was abit ugly and against the usual warbird liveries. But the idea of it is slowing growing on me. Anyways just wonderin'! Thanks, Nick
  5. Love it! I think water bombers have the most striking schemes. -Nick

    AMARC C-130

    Thanks guys! I'll definitely go with LGG and white Scott! Do you guys know what color grey the wing walks were painted? -Nick

    AMARC C-130

    Hey guys, Just wondering if any of you fellas knew what variation of the C-130 Herc this was. I need to build an interior for the cargo bay and wanted to get reference pics for the correct variation. I know since this is a parts a/c there won't be much left inside but there should be something! Also on a side note what colors will work for the grey on the fuse and the grey on the wings (If they're different?). Model Master colors are preferable! Thanks in advance, -Nick

  9. The fit looks pretty great, and the nameplate does the good. The dry brushing does wonders! -Nick
  10. Hey, It's 10.5"! Sorry, I don't know what that is in cm. The nacelles are decals. Pesky little things. Thanks! -Nick
  11. Thanks guys for all the info! I just like the idea of American pilots in the RAF. -Nick
  12. Hi y'all. First time post by myself of a finished model! Forgive me in advance if the colors arn't to exact. I followed the boxes instructions of light grey but the box art seems quite a bit lighter. I'm not a big fan of Sci-fi or Sci-fi models but my friend's birthday is coming up and he loves Star Trek. It only seemed right to build him his favorite class ship right? I didn't care to much for the kit. The fit wasn't to hot and the decals were way to thick. Micro Sol helped a bit. After looking online the D model (my favorite) might be a bit better fit wise. Anyone know? Anyways here are the pics. With the stand- Thanks for looking! -Nick
  13. Thanks for the offer Neil but the pro/dev scheme will do! Since you caught the look of the vertical stabs could you tell me if I'm right about something? I found a pic of 568 in a medium grey scheme (the one I'll be building). But it seems as if the front gear doors are in two peices? Is that right? Thanks, Nick Thanks for telling me about Vingtor, Giorgio! -Nick
  14. So yesterday I went to go get a couple of things from my local model shop. After a quick look in the model section to see if anything new or exciting had shown up I came across the Academy F-16 kit. Being cheap I picked it up and would soon find out something rather interesting. The box art on my kit shows an F-16A in this scheme Yet when I open up the box the instructions, decals, and kit build up to this I'm fine with what is in the box. A nice simple 2nd run F-16 will be fun. But what I don't understand is why Academy would package this kit with the box art for their 1/48th F-16. Even on the side of the box there are real shots of the 1/48th model. If anyone has any info on why Academy repackaged this kit the way they did I'd love to hear about it. Also any pictures of the real aircraft (in its grey scheme) would be greatly appreciated. I couldn't find any pics on Airliners.net of YF-16 2. -Nick
