  1. Beautiful job, Tony, just absolutely beautiful! I had been considering getting it for "the stash"; it is now a definite kit to get. I second what Navy Bird said. I look forward to the future marks! Joe

    Color help

    There is a second seller of the Colorcoats line here in the USA; just click on the link for Sovereign Hobbies above that Troy posted above. You can then find them under the "Where to Buy" link. Jamie Duff of @Jamie @ Sovereign Hobbies is committed to producing a good quality paint that is accurate to the original standards. Nick Millman graciously sent me his notes on both the Colorcoats and AK Interactive lines of IJNAAF/IJAAF paints. Mr. Millman noted that most of the Colorcoats paints were good matches; a few were maybe a bit too this or too much that. Jamie had consulted with Nick about the line. After I received Nick's notes; Jamie had reformulated the IJNAAF/IJAAF paints to match Nick's recommendations. The AK Interactive line is acrylic; the IJNAAF set of paints is very accurate according to Nick's notes. Good luck on your builds! HTH Joe

    Trouble with new Aztek A470 Airbrush

    @Scooby, I went on to the Testors website; and, clicked on the "Contact Us". I was shocked when I saw the physical address to send 'actual' mail. I drive by it to and from my job! It is maybe a couple of blocks from my place of employment. It is the Rust-O-Leum headquarters. Either they bought Testors; or, Testors bought them. See if you can find the email address for Rust-O-Leum.

    Greetings from Arizona USA!

    Hello, and to Britmodeller, it's a great place to be. I am Joe, live in the SE corner of Wisconsin. I am familiar with what CFFU above posted; he is, sadly, quite correct. There are 2-3 stores in my area; 1 or 2 in the City of Kenosha; and, one still in Racine, WI. My interests are 1/72nd scale aircraft, any era. I look forward to your builds, comments, and questions.

    AIRCRAFT OF 1940"

    Hello, Greg, and to Britmodeller, it's a great place to be; and, as you can see in the above posts; I am not exaggerating! You have already received some great advice; I do second what many others have said and build for yourself. No matter what brand of paint you buy; you should get the thinners for that brand. Also, I am glad to see that you have stopped lurking! Don't be afraid to ask for help; these are the most knowledgeable and helping people that it has been my privilege to know. Good luck to you! I look forward to your builds, comments, and questions. Joe

    New P-61C here!

    Mike, you're welcome. The supercharger intake is rather prominent in the box-top painting; that's why I mentioned it. Good luck on your conversion, and the NMF, that's where the real fun starts! Right now all 3 P-61 models(A, B, C) are the same price(mentioned in Post #1) at Squadron Mail Order, www.squadron.com, (your mileage may vary). I know that you know that Mike; just letting everyone else know. Joe

    New P-61C here!

    I was just perusing the Squadron Mail Order website and discovered that the HobbyBoss 1/72nd scale P-61C is now available. Squadron has it priced at $30.99USD; your mileage may vary. @72modeler, you may like this; you have told me that you prefer the 0.50 cal. turreted versions. The painting indicates an intake of some sort under the cowlings. This looks good; I believe that HobbyBoss intends to release the entire series of P-61s. Joe

    RLM Paint Chip Chart

    Hey, did anyone notice that in the photo of the Me 109 in Post #79 has a blue band on the air intake? I still remember the thread about this a couple of months ago. Joe
