  1. I've been using the Mr. Hobby Masking Sol R and been happy with it. But just for grins, I recently bought a bottle of the Abteilung 502 Liquid Mask. Haven't used it yet though.
  2. While this doesn't mention any specific colors, you might find the following interesting: Airmail History in Pictures, 1918–1928
  3. Another vote here for AK's Xtreme Metals. Love the way they spray. But hate the way they smell.
  4. Beautiful job! One of my favorite aircraft. I've got the Grand Models 1/72 version but I sincerely wish the Isracast 1/48 version was still available.
  5. Oh... delighted to see this! I've got both this one and the 1/48 version along with a resin 1/48 Shvetsov M-11 sitting in my stash waiting for me to abuse them. I'll just sit back and watch this one if you don't mind.
  6. Gotta love Delta! This thread reminds me of when I used to travel for business extensively back in the 70's. Was coming home to Atlanta one day on a Delta DC-8. I was sitting in the tail end of the aircraft. In any case, the pilot practiced his carrier approach and slammed the thing down on the runway. As soon as he did that, we heard a loud boom inside the aircraft and all of a sudden, a torrent of water started flowing down the aisle from the aft galley. Evidently, when the pilot slammed it down on the runway, a water pipe broke in the galley resulting in us practically having to swim
  7. Glad to see this one. Nicely done. I've got that one in my stash and have been pondering getting it out and giving it a go.
  8. I've got them and I rather like some of them. There's others that I'm not too sure of their utility. But overall, I do find them useful. Keep in mind they're very thin.
  9. For figures, you might want to check Walthers if you haven't already. For HO train sized figures and supplies, they've got it all.
  10. Very nice! I hope mine comes out looking half as good.
  11. Yours looks almost identical to the one that’s on my bench right now. White 18?
  12. I'm in the same boat as you. So, as my first foray in resin kits, I've bought the Grand Models T-6A Texan II and I'm delighted with it. Very nice little. kit. Now I just have to decide on a color scheme. It will definitely be USAF but there are a couple of custom USAF T-6 schemes out in the wild that I may try to duplicate. I'm hoping to start my build of it before the end of the year.
  13. I've got the H&S Infinity CR Plus 2 in 1 as well as an H&S Evolution. I keep the 0.15mm needle/nozzle in the Infinity for small detail work, and either a 0.2mm or 0.4mm needle/nozzle in the Evolution. You can have my H&S airbrushes when you pry them out of my cold, dead hands. For my compressor, I've got the Iwata Smart Jet Plus Tubular compressor that sits neatly under my workbench. Very pleased with both my airbrushes as well as my compressor.
  14. Here's a blog post from Kermit Weeks about his "Ike". It's got a picture of the panel on his reproduction in the post. Check out some of his other posts about cramming himself into the cockpit and flying the thing.
