  1. Mine is me when I get done up, which isn't as often as I'd like.
  2. More cab work done. The exterior bodywork is done. Filled and scribed new door lines. Filled the signal light holes, made a new visor. Made the whole interior (except the steering wheel) and wheel wells. I built a platform to go under the circuit board mostly to protect the underhood from water and dirt. Also a place to mount the on/off switch. The driver had is a standard gijoe. I had to cut his boots down a bit to make him fit at the toe boards. The head came from another. Had to use the cut off disc to cut away portions of his thighs to make his legs pull up more and stay closer together. I
  3. Nicely done, not severly weathered, kinda what I'd expect from a well taken care of plane.
  4. How about two part epoxy? Although I had it not bond before a couple of times.
  5. I heard of so many good ones, forget which is which. I still use testors cement for most stuff. I know some builders will throw a rolling pin at me from across the pond but it's what I'm used to and doesn't spill out when you drop it. To bad it's hard to get out your way. Not sure what else would work for large parts.
  6. took back three wishes (cut backs you know)
  7. the full word, applications (haven't seen that word in forever, today is just apps)
  8. one way to avoid the prices is to find people with stashes. We all have them, as well as those impulse buys we did. The HO train community is good for that. I know there are collections of trains and parts sitting in basements etc. The other side is, someone paid, say $100 for something and doesn't want to give it away for $5. Meanwhile in the store it's $120 new. I find it strange what a model costs new plus aftermarket parts, paint, etc. and if you sell it in evilbay, you'll get a mere fraction of what you spent on it. Also, if you offer a model with add ons for say $20 when it costed you $
  9. Prices jumped big time just for car models in the last couple of years, almost double. Italeri truck models are hitting $100+. Minicraft B-50 used to be a $60ish model, now it's around $120. How does someone get their kid into the hobby when it's that much? I guess times are changing.
  10. When you say protect the clear areas inside the frames, are you saying mask the clear portions before bodyworking it? As in to prevent damage? Just want to make sure I read this correctly.
