  1. Very nice work! There's a good reason that era was called the Golden Age of Aviation.
  2. Outstanding work Old hacksaw blades are also an excellent source for making molding cutters. File the shape just as you did with the single-edge blade.
  3. I'm ready. I've got the GWH 1/144 Vulcan B.2 and fundekals markings.
  4. I'll join! Likely candidates from the previous millennium include 1/48 F9F-5P, various AT-6 boxings, C-47, F-105D, TBF, 1/110 Mercury Capsule & Atlas Booster, and 1/72 PT-109 (for which I have some cool shark mouth markings).
  5. Truly outstanding work! Those are animations. Open the image in a new tab and they shown fine!
  6. Nice work! I see that it actually has cockpit detail! Certainly a big step up from those Hawk 1/48 racers, which provide no cockpit detail beyond an amorphous pilot blob.
  7. Ooh, that Heavylift Guppy looks tasty! Dang!
  8. Hang on, I thought I read you lot owe cricket to an alien visit?
  9. Your outstanding result is all the more of an accomplishment, then!
  10. I don't rely on ratios, I rely on thickness, like 1% milk or a little thinner. For Mr Color Gloss (C46), I thin with Mr Leveling Thinner, spray at 15 PSI (1 atm), 0.5mm nozzle, 5-15cm, temp no lower than 18c. Being in Southern CA, humidity is generally low unless its actually raining or the marine layer is overhead (I live near the coast). For flat and satin, Microscale Industries Micro Flat or Micro Satin, thinned with water as above. Spraying as above. All three dry quite quickly. I'll usually only apply multiple coats for gloss. As always, coverage first then a final gloss coat. HTH -- dnl
  11. Glad to see this coming along! I've got one in the stash and I hope to eventually follow in your footsteps!
  12. I'm in! I have a good selection in the stash. 1/48 include Loening M-8, Baker-McMillen Cadet II, PZL P.1, P.11, P.24, Lublin R.XIII and kitbash R.XIX (vee-tailed R.XIII), RWD 8, DH.85, Grumman XF10F,. 1/144 include BAC TSR-2, Fairchild C-117, Boeing MacDac C-17, Pilatus Porter
  13. DO NOT USE lacquer (cellulose) thinner to clean your airbrush after spraying Vallejo! I've never used Mr Color Leveling Thinner to clean an airbrush. The stuff is far too expensive for such use. I routinely use hardware store lacquer (cellulose) thinner to clean my airbrush. But DO NOT USE lacquer thinner to clean your airbrush after spraying Vallejo! The paint will be turned into a gooey mess that will demand a full disassembly cleaning of the airbrush. I haven't sprayed Vallejo in ages, but I recall using water and an Medea Airbrush Cleaner after.
  14. Completely agree with @cmatthewbacon!
