  1. amazing model! really excellent painting and finish, top notch
  2. Stay frosty... What's the scale on these guys anyway? Would love to get some next to a UD-4L Cheyenne tactical dropship...
  3. Beautiful, really excellent! I have zvezda's helix ps in the stash too, and plan to do it in a scheme like yours. What blue did you use? It looks really good.
  4. Thanks Ken, it really means a lot coming from you, as I've been admiring your work for quite some time Yeah, I know Amodel does one, but at 170 bucks a pop, I'll wait for an IM one, or until I win the lottery, whichever comes first
  5. Very nice. Like the Herc, Zvezda's progress really shows in these new kits. However, as it is pretty small scale, it was very hard to mask all the windows, especially the round bubble ones in the front. I usually don't build in 144, but this is one of my favorite aircraft, so i just had to build one, even if it was in the wrong scale I wish Zvezda would come out with 72 scale one... And A-40 in 1/72... I can only dream...
  6. Wonderful! Really satisfying experience... finally, after a long time, a kit that didn't fight me all the way to the finish line Zvezda has really come a long way. The way the wing parts fit together alone shows that someone really thought the fit through. Or the fit of the propellers, which is the best solution ever (Zvezda uses the same system on their Pe-2, and all other manufacturers should look upon them). Highly recommended.
  7. I have a dremel clone and a proxxon, but for really slow work, I use this: https://www.ikea.com/us/en/p/fixa-screwdriver-drill-lithium-ion-00196101/
  8. No problem, mate Like you, I started with an Aztek, and once I learned all it's quirks, I got on with it pretty well, for more than a couple of years. But then I decided it was time to move on, and I splurged for a Paasche VL set, and man, my life changed... It was so much better, and more capable... It was like going from a Ford Escort to a Ford Mustang... In my opinion, the VL is THE best beginner brush, it's very robust (it's needle is almost 3 mm thick!) while still being highly capable, so it's suitable for learning new techniques. Most importantly, after the Aztek, the VL was so easy t
  9. Buy a good quality brush, like Iwata, mr hobby, or h&s? They all have teflon seals, which are impervious to cellulose thinners
