  1. Super nice job! Love everything about it! How was the kit?
  2. The P-61 is the DML kit and The PBJ is the Hasegawa kit. Lol, I try to avoid Revell unless it is the only game in town. Thanks.
  3. A couple I recently finished... If I can only find the wing light covers for the PBJ the that I put somewhere so I would not lose them. Go figure...
  4. Beautiful build Steve! The weathering is tops! Where did you find the tackle blocks or did you scratch build them?
  5. @TheBaron, the ice is actually broken glass that is used in decorative vases. Found it at a local craft supply store. Thanks. Shannon
  6. @Whofan, that would be the radar. Thanks for the kudos!
  7. Hey Paul, I had not decided if I was going to add the bow protection cap or not at the time. Many times, the subs were towed by an icebreaker and the cap was not always used in this case. I have actually decided to add it, but am in the middle of a move. Thanks for that picture. So far, it is the best picture I have seen of the bow protection cap.
  8. Thanks brother! Looking forward to the inbound B-52.
  9. 1/72 Type IXC U-505. "Transit through the Ice". In Jan. 42, U-505 left the 4th Unterseebootsflottille (training) in Kiel headed to the 2nd Unterseebootsflottille in Lorient, France. Kptlt. Loewe stands on the bridge alone taking one last look at the sun as the sub is about to clear the ice and make preparations to dive. This is my interpretation of what that day may have been like. Lol, I forgot to post the story behind this build. As I envisioned her about to leave the ice, accelerating, and dive ... I figure around 8 knts at this moment.
  10. Thanks everyone! There are a ton of great builds in this group. Been perusing the posts on and off for the past few days. Wish some of the pics stayed up longer... meh.
  11. Awesome work! Didn't realize how big this kit is before. Tops!
  12. The icicles were created using a clear silicon caulk and a toothpick. Just apply a small amount on the tip of the toothpick and dab it on the line, then pull down. Hope this helps.
  13. Bitzer, it is the Revell Type IXC (U-505 Late) 1/72 kit. Good kit. Going to build the Gato next.
  14. My first diorama... after 10 months, I am calling this done. Lol, starting to wonder if they are ever really done. This is my interpretation of U-505 transiting from Kiel to Lorient in January of 1942. Question or criticism welcome.
  15. Thanks, this build is definitely a labor of love. The kit is detailed nicely with very little fit issues. It comes with both the gun nose and glass nosed versions. Has a nice resin wingtip radar. APS-3, I believe. The only fit issue was with the gun nose. It was a little wider than the body, but easily corrected. I built her with the gear up and you can expect the normal issues when doing this. She will be part of a diorama later, but have two more builds to complete for the scene. This was my first go with detailing engines this small, and I must say, it was quite the challenge. Shannon
  16. So, a friend referred me to this group and I thought I would share this build. I have been modeling for about two years and this is my first go with a 1/72 bird. I love the Mitchell and we have one locally. Here are a few wip shots of my bird. Hopefully the images load... Enjoy.
