  1. Thank you. All I really do is shake the bejaysus out of the bottle. If I haven't used it for a while I'll shake it for about an hour.....thank God for internet I'm trying to stay away from anything non-acrylic. Nothing to do with health unless you count the Vice-Admiral in Charge of My Life threatening to kill if I spray odors around. I have a spray booth but its just to catch the acrylic over spray
  2. As far as I am aware, no 1:48 P-51 had the correct puttied configuration. I just finished Hasegawa's offering and had to fill in the panel lines and a quick look at the new Eduard kit shows panel lines as well. I filled in Tamiya's panel line also
  3. Very fine looking aircraft. I built mine as a German kite and know what you mean about "Early". Apparently mine is "late Early" and I had to change the profile of the area in front of the exhausts. Agree about the fit of the scoops around the wing roots; they fit perfectly to the wing or the fuselage but not both. I still have the "Late" version in the stash. George
  4. This aircraft depicts that of Capt Ted Lines, 335th FS/4th FG.8th AF.. Capt. Lines is officially credited with ten victories, however, examination of combat reports indicates that he actually destroyed 14. These victories included four in one day. He had been awarded the Distinguished Service Cross, the Distinguished Flying Cross with one Oak Leaf Cluster, and the Air Medal with three Oak Leaf Clusters Overall a very nice kit with the exception of the individual microscopic MGs and wing-tip lights. For the Interior Green I used a Tamiya mix of Yellow XF-3, Green XF-5 2/1. The photo shows the mix compared to Gunze Sangyo Interior Green which I was unaware I had. The exterior colours were, for the wings, Tamiya XF-16 Flat Aluminum. The moving surfaces were sprayed Vallejo 77.707 Chrome over the plastic and the fuselage was sprayed with the same paint over Tamiya X-18 Semi Gloss Black
