As a result of the close-down of the UK by the British Government last night, we have made all the Buy/Sell areas read-only until we open back up again, so please have a look at the announcement linked here.

  1. Well done! Glad you were able to make it.
  2. Nice work! And kitty proved the Grumman Iron Works moniker was well deserved!
  3. Ya, Special Hobby made 1/48 versions, but that notion escaped them. Again, nice work on these builds!
  4. Welcome aboard! I don't have specific info for you, but I suggest you look on this site for build threads. If you can't find the specific kits, perhaps build threads for MPM and Valom kits will provide some guidance. You can also search for online reviews. Here's one that may help. Another useful resource can be scalemates. They try to present comprehensive info on kits, including what boxings are available, how the boxings differ, e.g., new decals, new parts, &etc. They may also have scans of the instructions, pets to reviews, available after-market parts. Here's one that might help. HTH -- dnl
  5. Nice work! Glad you marked them from the same squadron, since they did operate in pairs.
  6. Inkscape is open source, a.k.a., free, and available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. It's a vector drawing program, so probably not as easy as a paint program.
  7. @thorfinn, what do you use for drawing? I use Inkscape, which I also use to drive a Silhouette Portrait cutter.
  8. Thanks for info. I use your previous brand and I completely agree on the curling--it's quite maddening at times! I ordered the white and clear and will give it a shot. BTW, how is the opacity?
  9. You make an in-flight model of this incident! BTW, not sure how I missed this, but I'm glad I caught up!
  10. Pat, This continues to be an outstanding build. A true testament to what this kit can be!
  11. I too whole-heartedly recommend that book. It's very well written and is an excellent source of ship operations. I'm so very sad to hear John passed. He was a treasure. I "met" John on the SMML email list lo those years ago, where he was quite kind and eager to provide authoritative info. I used to spend more of my time in that modeling genre than I do now.
  12. Indeed, very nice work on the boats and the cannons!
