  1. Been crazy busy with work again lately, then off on holidays for the past week or so. But I'm back for a bit now. More progress. I'm hoping to have the RX ready for the club meeting tomorrow...if I can finish w/o cutting any major corners. We'll see. Chassis is pretty much complete at this point. All that is left is interior (most of it is painted, just need to touch up a couple things & assemble) then all the exterior trim. The details on the exterior is where I'm afraid I might get bogged down, as it will probably be slow going so I don't get too fat fingered w/ the paint brush.
  2. Don't worry, the tips are getting cut down. I left them long for the initial fitting so I could size them to the body (hence the black marks). Though I did have a brief thought of going bosozoku on it...but it's to nice of a car to butcher like that. I got a nice enough finish on the clear I may not even micromesh it down. We'll see. There is always room for improvement.
  3. Single-type GB have a slightly lower threshold. Standard GBs that cover multiple types are 30.
  4. I really do need to get better pics of this one some day. RF-35 completed for the Nordic II GB. Not to worry...I've another one in the stash.
  5. I'd just like to give @PeterB a shout out for sharing his wealth of knowledge/research on the vast array of Japanese WWII equipment. Thank you sir for taking the time.
  6. Looking sweet. I've got a Silhouette Cameo. I've still not had the time to mess with it yet. Got the software all set up on the laptop, just need to mess around with it a bit. Also need to get my scanner set up...that'll be handy for decals/masks.
  7. Been picking away on the undercarriage a bit. Finalization of the exhaust mods will have to come at the tail end after everything is pretty much assembled so I can tuck to tail pipes up fairly tight to the body.
  8. Picking away on my F-4 STGB entry, which would also apply this GB if I wasn't so far along. Though one could probably argue that decals are 75% of a Phantom build.
  9. Glad you came by to play. Really nice result for how tiny it is. That 10ml jar of Tamiya really puts it in perspective.
  10. I actually rather enjoy rifling through the closest and pulling out random kits to look at. I really hope this one makes it through this time.
  11. It's never too late. Glad to have you aboard Mark.
