  1. I can post messages at Maritime WIP, but not on Aircraft WIP....well, at least I can not access the message and suspect that others can not, either.
  2. The stacks are way too wide for the cutouts in the cowling. Is this just me or a common problem with AM Yaks? Richard P.S.: this is the 3rd attempt to post this message. On the previous ones I got a "error 500" and can not access the message.
  3. The stacks are too wide for the openings, so it's sanding down the painted & weathered stacks. Is this a general problem with this kit (Accurate Miniatures), or did I goof somewhere? Richard P.S.: the "500" message is fun, too.
  4. This is the full text: Forbidden You don't have permission to access this resource. Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. Yes, I am logged in, and I can read other postings. Curious && curiouser, Richard
  5. The stacks are too wide to fit, so now I am filing and sanding them down to size. Is this a common fault of the kit or just me? Richard P.S.: The "500" messages are fun, too
  6. These little guys just are too wide, so it's sanding down the painted & weathered stacks. Is this a general problem with this kit (Accurate Miniatures), or did I goof somewhere? Richard P.S.: the "500" message is fun, too.
  7. ...as in RLM 75 spots over an RLM 76 Ju88G wing and fuselage. The pencil lines hopefully will help with placement and size of the spots. What do you think about that idea? Richard
  8. Applied the masks this morning, hoping to paint tonight. As far as I understand the correct/safe procedure is to spray a coat of clear first to seal the edges, paint later? I am trying two approaches: red stars on a fully painted Yak-1b, and red on bare plastic on a Lagg 3, camouflage colors to go over the red (for the stars). For how long can I leave the masks on the model before some sort of damage to the paint job occurs? If there is anything more , based on your experience, please do let me know! Richard
  9. Thank you for the replies. So it can be used for the undersides of mid-war SBDs and TBMs, of which I have 2 and 3 respectively? Richard
  10. The paint in this ancient tin is still good. But is it near the real thing? And what camouflage scheme and type of plane can I use it for? TIA, Richard
  11. Gaspatch instructions call for RLM 65 light blue. Is this correct? TIA, Richard
  12. AIMS 48D017 "Ju88 Early Birds pt 2" has got all the letters you need: M,7,D and K. They are all black. Check it out at the AIMS website. Richard
  13. recognition, as in IFF? Richard
  14. And again, another fan of the book. Funny though how Maclean misunderstood the glide-bomb concept (the bomber swooping in at mast height, releasing the bomb just short of the target for an unpowered glide into the ship, with an exceptionally powerful warhead). Are there any more glitches that I missed? Richard
